    I think they scored it. Late, but they did.

    Thank you all guys. I wasn't shocked since I was in the leading positions in the last meetings but I wouldn't have ever expected to win by mid season. Sometimes it was luck, sometimes I chose athletes who weren't mass-selected. I don't think there will be "material" prices but I feel the satisfaction. Even more because I was in Brussels watching live on Friday.

    i'm pretty sure that I, for one, was way happier watching it on the stream with 3 computers up and running than I would have been sitting in a cold stadium.

    Indeed. In our dotage, the at-home multi-screen experience, with slo-mo replays and full results, beats 'real-life' every time. No nasty rest-rooms or exorbitant concession stands and in MY bed at night. I plan on going to WC 2021, but that's mostly just a bucket-list check-off.

    Yep.. I have attended a lot of meets, big and small, but did not really see much of the meet because I was working... I love TV, handy restroom and no daunting logistics.
    Fred Newhouse and I have a running contest as to who has seen the most WRs. He is way ahead because he actually saw some that I only heard.
