This guy and the gloves. Amirite?

Congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champion hockey team.

Maybe the problem isn’t the unvaccinated Red Sox players, but Canada’s onerous vaccine requirements.

Kyrie with the Pee Wee Herman, “I meant to do that”, opts back in with Nets.

My viewing was delayed until tonight because of some really good family time, but #Unrivaled might be the best @E60 I’ve ever seen. Absolutely riveting TV.

I have no idea what these three-initial NBA contractual terms mean.

I like the strategy of charging the dugout instead of the mound. That’s where the order to dot you came from, right?

Cakes are cooking for Mel Brooks, Gary Busey, Dan Dierdorf, María Conchita Alonso, Rosa Mota, George Hincapie, Andy O’Brien, Martin Truex Jr, and Camila Mendes.

Turtleboy is jerking off all over YouTube and he’s crying about a drag queen fisting somebody.

Highly regarded NBA assistants never leave for promotions. Everyone forgets that.

UMass’s Own Cale Makar is the first player in NHL history to win the Hobey Baker, Calder trophy, Norris trophy, Conn Smythe, Gord Flooberman Award, and the Stanley Cup.

Pretty much nothing is almost certain.

It’s crazy that stopping to get a coffee when you’re already running late makes you even later.

I like that Wimbledon has a dress code.

Once a year, the Red Sox should have a “Jerry Remy Day” on which their announcers are required to refer to Nick Pivetta as Nick Pivetter and John Schreiber as John Schreibah.

Google Hangouts is shutting down in November. Its successor is Google Chat, which is not the same as GChat, which was also known as Google Talk. None of those are the same as Spaces, which is the new name for Rooms. I am not making any of this up.

At least there’s pretty lights
And though there’s little variations
It nullifies the night
From overkill.

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away
Come back another day

Honda will voluntarily recall 27,838 model-year 2020 Accord Hybrid, 2020 CR-V Hybrid and 2020-2021 Insight vehicles in the United States to update software in the Hybrid Power Control Unit (PCU). Under certain circumstances, the portion of the PCU that controls charging of the 12 volt accessory battery may malfunction, sending the PCU into a “fail safe” mode, preventing battery charging and activating warning displays for the driver. Since a charged 12 volt battery is required for proper vehicle function, this condition may cause a vehicle to stall while driving, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. Honda has received no reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue.
