Pro Sports Discussion / Wow, this is a first
« on: March 05, 2021, 09:22:26 PM »
AFAIK  ???:

The NIT is moving the entire 2021 event to Texas because of the coronavirus pandemic, taking the semifinals and championship game out of New York's Madison Square Garden for the first time in the 83-year history of college basketball's oldest postseason tournament.

Couldn't go there last year and had cancelled our plan last year because it was postponed so thought about trying for it again this year but just got this news:

No Fans From Abroad for Postponed Tokyo Olympics. The postponed Tokyo Olympics look like they will take place without any fans from abroad when they open in just under five months. The Japanese newspaper Mainichi said on Wednesday the decision had been made to exclude foreign fans.

Minneapolis and Hennepin County officials will spend at least $1 million to put up fences and other barricades ahead of the trial for the former officer charged with murder in the death of George Floyd.

Michael Brown's Father and Ferguson Activists Request $20 Million From Black Lives Matter for Organizing Efforts

The International Black Freedom Alliance and Michael Brown Sr., the father of the teen that was killed in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 by police officer Darren Wilson, are requesting $20 million from Black Lives Matter.

The request comes on the heels of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation revealing it received over $90 million in donations in 2020. The Black Lives Matter movement gained national attention following the protests that took place in response to the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown and received renewed attention in 2020 after the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery.

I see some kids in this generation typically ages 7-12 tossing water bottle. I think it's silly but I can't say much because my generation at that age range also had our own silly game(s).

Here's the silly game I used to play when I was within that age range. And yes, I went through many pencils..  ;D:

Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

"Questions have been raised about some of my past interactions with people in the office.

"I never intended to offend anyone or cause any harm. I spend most of my life at work and colleagues are often also personal friends.

"At work sometimes I think I am being playful and make jokes that I think are funny. I do, on occasion, tease people in what I think is a good natured way. I do it in public and in private. You have seen me do it at briefings hundreds of times. I have teased people about their personal lives, their relationships, about getting married or not getting married. I mean no offense and only attempt to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.

"I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.

"To be clear I never inappropriatel y touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to.

"That's why I have asked for an outside, independent review that looks at these allegations.

"Separately, my office has heard anecdotally that some people have reached out to Ms. Bennett to express displeasure about her coming forward. My message to anyone doing that is you have misjudged what matters to me and my administration and you should stop now - period."

Strange but true: Terry Bradshaw checked into hospital under alias 'Tom Brady' in 1983

On Feb. 3, 1983, when then-Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw needed offseason elbow surgery, he decided to go incognito. He didn't check into Doctor's Hospital in Shreveport, Louisiana, under his own name, and instead used the alias "Tom Brady." Yes, really.

According to a recent report from Bloomberg, American buyers of the 911 GT3 are choosing the optional six-speed manual transmission seven times out of ten. That 70-percent take rate here in the U.S. is more than twice the global take rate, which lies at 30 percent.
