KKR Beats RCB Handily 2021 IPL (Restart)

If #IPL Part II is back on, but it's not on @Hotstarusa, did the restart even happen🤔?

And did #KKR really bundle out #RCB for 92 (#AndreRussell 3 for 9, #Chakravarthy 3 for 13😲), and did they discover *another* hidden gem in #VenkateshIyer(Venky?)🤘?!

RIP Norm Macdonald

RIP #NormMacdonald

Like certain other men of a certain age, I was a big fan. Always made me think, then chuckle, then laugh. Saw him in Vegas once, & decided to leave the fawning to the young women surrounding him cracking up at his jokes. He knew how to work any crowd. Legend.

Djokovic's Legacy Complicated By His Behaviour

 





Speaking of...

#Djokovic's gonna put up numbers stat-geeks will salivate over for generations...

But his behaviour makes him a terrible ambassador for sport which will be part of his complex legacy🤔

At least #Djoker's more gracious in defeat than his #NoleFam troll army🙄

Incredible👏!

PS. I put #Nole's 2022 Slam O/U at 2, you won't like #Djoker when he's angry😬!

18yo Qualifier Raducanu Beats 19yo Unseeded Fernandez to Win 2021 US Open!!!!!!!!!!

RIP #MichaelKWilliams

Gone way too soon. Very, very sad. Ever since #TheWire, *every* time, TBH & I always sat up: "Hey, it's Michael K!" It took time for Hollywood to truly allow him to shine, & boy was he ready when it did. He was right in the middle of an unforgettable career

RIP Charlie Watts

RIP #CharlieWatts

Per all the critics, one of *the* most important parts one of *the* most important rock n' roll bands of all time. Me? I'm no critic, but I loved that guy. Saw #TheRollingStones live & for all the others' fun histrionics, my eyes were glued to Charlie. Legend.

Quo Vadis, Aida? Incredible Movie

This is a reminder to watch #QuoVadisAida (I believe it's streaming on #Hulu)

One of the most incredible films I've ever watched, even more so now.

Hopefully, it will end up on *all* the Top 10 lists this year.

Absolutely unforgettable!
