Federer Beats Cilic to Make it to Semis 2017 ATP Finals

Man, the Old #GOAT wants this bad huh?πŸ˜€#Federer comes back to beat #Cilic in "meaningless" match. Now comes the hard part...😬#ATPFinals

15 November 2017

Kershaw Loses NL Cy Young to Scherzer

Looks like @ThisShowStinks's campaigning worked. I mean, I like #Scherzer but no way he deserved #NL #CyYoung over #Kershaw, certainly not by 75 pts! #Dodgers

Federer Battles Past Young Zverev 2017 ATP Finals

(Another) tough, battlin', less-than-pretty win for the Old #GOAT. #Federer pushes hard by #Zverev, but methinks he wants this one bad. #ATPFinals

14 November 2017

RIP Liz Smith

RIP #LizSmith. Always enjoyed watching her to do those little bits on E! News *back* in the day with the likes of Army Archerd, Michael Musto etc.

Cody Bellinger Unanimous Rookie of the Year

Congrats to *young* (only 21?!) #Cody #Bellinger winning #NL #ROY. Methinks a #GoldenGlove won't be far behind. PS. Hopefully this inspires him to keep working on that pesky inside-curveball (or was that a slider?) 😁 #Dodgers

13 November 2017

CoCo Helps USA Win Fed Cup for the First Time in (17!) Years

It's #CoCo #Vandeweghe's (tennis) world, we just live in it! She (singlehandedly?) wins #FedCup for #USA. Credit to plucky underdogs #BLR who put up h*lluva fight.

The Florida Project

#TheFloridaProject: Simply wonderful, moving cinematic experience. Stunning work from director Baker, Dafoe, Vinaite & the kids, esp young Brooklynn. PS. That ending… 😭

12 November 2017

Steelers Gut Out Comeback Win Over Colts

Whew...I never doubted the #Steelers 😁 Gutty come-from-behind win vs #Colts. Nice to see #JuJu & #Martavis make up. #HereWeGo

Federer Tough First Win Over Jack Sock 2017 ATP Finals

I'm liking this new-look tough #JackSock...but Old #GOAT took care of business on his "home" court. #Federer 1 step closer to 7th(!) #ATPFinals.

11 November 2017

Murder on the Orient Express

#MurderOnTheOrientExpress: Absurdly sumptuous entertainment (70mm!πŸ‘). Branagh's a fun Poirot. *Great* cast, esp Depp & Pfeiffer(-aissance).

10 November 2017

RIP John Hillerman

RIP #JohnHillerman. Massive part of my childhood, #MagnumPI was (/is) my favourite TV show & he was my favourite thing it it! I'd catch him in small roles in classic movies later & marvel at his accent, then I found out he was Texan and #Higgins was the accent all along. Sigh…😒

Legendary Journalist Warren Olney Retires From LA Radio Airwaves

You Know You're Too Old When: #WarrenOlney (is) Retire(d). True local treasure. Learned so much from him over so many years (incl there's a Madras in OR?!). Another major #KCRW loss.😭

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

#ThreeBillboards: Fantastic! More than just an Oscar-reel for the great McDormand. Expertly made by McDonagh. Rockwell, take a career bow, man!

08 November 2017

RIP Roy Halladay

RIP #RoyHalladay. Great tough pitcher who battled for every last out. Had a #HOF career, but man was his whole life ahead of him. So very sad. #DocHalladay

07 November 2017

India Beats New Zealand to Win Another Series

Ho-hum, another series, another #IND winπŸ˜€... at least this was against (true plucky underdogs) #NZL & not a stat-padding win vs #SRI #INDvNZ

01 November 2017

Kershaw and Darvish

Questions swirling around #Kershaw post-season will continue, but he was huge today. Poor #YuDarvish, at least he behaved with rare dignityπŸ‘

Sad End to a Great Dodgers Season

Sigh, sad end to *great* #Dodgers season. "Day players" came up big: #ChrisTaylor, #LoganForsythe, #AustinBarnes, #Culberson, #BrandonMorrow

Astros Beat the Dodgers in Game 7 to Win 2017 World Series

Tough, deserved #WorldSeries for #Houston (#CharlieMorton?). #Astros, though, crossed the line from plucky underdogs to arrogant favourites.

Ashish Nehra Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #AshishNehra Retires. Under-appreciated cricketer & that rare and wonderful species: the left-arm fast bowler.

Dodgers Get Series-Leveling (& Changing?) Win 2017 World Series

(Series-changing?) win for #Dodgers (& #BellingerπŸ˜€)!  #AlexWood πŸ‘! #Gurriel disproves media narrative about likable plucky underdog #Astros.

Dodgers Heartbreaking Game 2 Loss 2017 World Series

With Kyrie Traded LeBron Can't Be Far Behind

With the #Nets pick #Cavaliers essentially traded #Kyrie...& #LeBron in one fell swoop! Between this & #USOpen my heart's gonna give out! πŸ˜₯

Possible Kyrie - Isaiah Thomas Trade! πŸ™€


Dear #LeBron, I admire the h*ll out of #IsaiahThomas...but please don't trade #Kyrie for him, it'll only make #DannyAinge more insufferable😳
