    Yay, Brady & co. bring them No. 5! [2 more...let's go!] I am totally convinced.

    ...when Sir Karl Popper [AustroBrit] met Albert Einstein, he did not confer him the status of demigod [which he was in the realm of applied science] though he reluctantly hatted-off to him because he was!

    No need to promote Stan to Majorship yet but isn't an NCO Sergeant designation a bit low for someone with 3 GSes, Sir?;)

    It's a play on The Fab 4's GOAT album that changed the music and culture of the 60s like no other...Sgt. Pepper. No disrespect for a, at that time, 2-slam winner to be compared to GOAT musical innovators!

    On April 25, 1969 in St. Petersburg FL young Joseph Francis Buck was issued into this world and would go on to fame as a sports broadcaster, just like his father Jack Buck.

    On May 25, 1969 many first saw Jon Voigt in his role as Joe Buck when the classic film "Midnight Cowboy" was issued to cinemas all over the world.

    That's another movie on my to-watch list.

    Oops, I just realized that I forgot to watch The Matrix today. :oops: Please don't tell Poisoned Slice...

    This video puts a smile on my face and makes me forget about the new Putin and Trump era.

    There is an interesting dynamic in tennis, where the winner of a match is usually assertive in enforcing that the loser shakes the hand of the chair umpire first. I remember that when Nadal first stated beating Federer, Roger led Nadal to shake hands first, but Nadal wouldn't give in and insisted that Roger shake hands first.

    In politics, this a very important dynamic, where the leaders jockey to put their arms on the back of a fellow leader, to lead them into a building. It is viewed as a psychological expression of dominance. I wonder if sports psychologists encourage players to follow this practice.

    I remember some pictures surfacing a few years ago of Dubya holding hands with some Saudi prince or king. They said it was a common practice among male friends in Saudi Arabia, but it's obviously supergay in the Western World when you are over the age of 6. I'm wondering if the Saudi ruler knew that and used that imposition to show the world who was boss.
