    I've only met jazzy one time in person, but would concur with lonewolf's assessment. It was a fun dinner with him that night in Raleigh.

    Not sure who posts more on these threads - jazzcyclist on College Football, or Conor Dary on the new Hayward field posts - although he has slowed down in recent months on that. Dr Jay's post about...

    No, by saying it was an AC in London or Helsinki - that gave it away to me

    Since Olli gave it away, it has to be Alice Coachman. Although you never heard of her, Olli, Coachman has an exalted place in Olympic history as the first African-American, or Black (native African)...

    Not in anyway upset with you, wamego relays champ, I just thought the Washington Post treating this rather poor retrospective database analysis as something warranting that headline was not quite...

    I just looked at the article - its not the 18th century, it was the 16th to the 19th century. And they studied 81 eunuchs out of 385, or about 23% follow-up, because they couldn't get data on the...

    Extending that to the 21st century and then publishing it with a headline that eunuchs live 14-19 years longer than non-eunuchs constitutes, IMO, journalistic malpractice

    Its basically like an old doctor joke I heard a long time ago

    Patient: Doc, I need to know if I'm gonna live another 25 years.
    MD: OK, let me ask you some questions. Do you smoke?
    Patient: No,...

    I find that stat hard to believe. The average male in first-world countries lives about 78-80 years so that would be living somewhere between 92-99 years on the average which is absurd. You could say...

    I will say I'd never heard of the actor playing the lead character (Ed Skrein playing Dick Best), but it was incredible casting. He looked about as much like the tough soldier we all want on our side...

    I have not seen it but my wife has. She is not an unbiased observer in this instance, because her favorite actor was always Charlton Heston (or Sean Connery), who played in the original Midway. Her...

    My wife and I just saw Midway. It was pretty good. She loves reading about and studying WW2, so she was really into it.

    A very wise man told me years ago one of the qualities of being a leader is to praise people in public, and censure them in private.

    I disagree that baseball was elitist. The champions of the two leagues played each other - that's what its all about.

    Many people will not remember that the NFL used to have a runner-up bowl each...

    In similar events wasn't Mary Decker out for about 4 years in the 1970s before coming back to prominence?

    They haven't had that since "The Last Picture Show" - that was the last one, so we don't have them anymore. My best buddy and I at Duke went to that and he walked out he was so bored by it. I managed...

    They would have won if RJ Barrett had just let Zion have the ball more in the last minutes of close games - ball hog.

    Main Press Centre - I mentioned it earlier in the post, sometimes also called the MMC = Main Media Centre, although there is also always a separate IBC = International Broadcast Centre at the Olympics

    Good to see we get a thread about the really important college sport.

    Also note, DrJay, that Duke started out by defeating Kansas on Tuesday nite, despite all the experts picking Kansas.
