The fact that “Brexit means Brexit” is trending on Twitter after England lost the Euro finals to Italy cracks me up.
Sports is way more interesting than Ryan Adams.
How 'bout ol Pete Alonso and that awesome home run derby last night?

1984 st louis cardinals?
San Francisco Giants …1989?
Was Brett Butler on that team?
And was Jeffery “Hackman” Leonard still there then?
I remember those Giants with Kevin Mitchell. They were a fun team to watch. 1990?
The Cardinals have always been our nemesis as a Tigers fan. They ALWAYS seem to do more with less.
i just looked.
yes butler sure was!!!
The sad part is I don’t think I could name ten players on the current Cardinals team. I’m just not the diehard I was back then. They’re still my favorite baseball team. But, I’m more of a casual fan these days.
I miss baseball from that era. Teams that played small ball. Singles, walks, stolen bases, solid pitching & solid defense.
I certainly don’t follow it like I did as a kid. Watching the All Star game the other night I had never heard of about half the players.
When I went to the All Star game in Detroit (in 1971) I knew more about every player on those rosters than I do about any player now. I would study the players’ averages and ERA’s, printed out each week in the Sunday paper.
But my mind is crammed with useless knowledge… I could probably tell you complete starting lineups from 3 or 4 teams from that era even today.

This made me really happy.
Also getting that other guy with the #1 pick… I might even watch some games now.
College sports are poison to academia, an unrelated and stupid distraction from actual learning. Universities aren’t a minor league for major sports, nor should they be.
What’s there to discuss? It’s axiomatic.
