  1. It's "Sourpusses of the world, unite!" IN THE WAKE of last week’s indictments alleging that 13 Russian nationals and entities created fake social media accounts and sponsored political events to sow political discord in the U.S., something of a consensus has arisen in the political and media class (with some notable exceptions) that these actions not only constitute an “act of war” against the U.S., but one so grave that it is tantamount to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Indeed, that Russia’s alleged “meddling” is comparable to the two most devastating attacks in U.S. history has, overnight, become a virtual cliché. The claim that Russian meddling in the election is “an act of war” comparable to these events isn’t brand new. Senators from both parties, such as Republican John McCain and Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, have long described Russian meddling in 2016 as an “act of war.” Hillary Clinton, while promoting her book last October, described Russia’s alleged hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s email inbox as a “cyber 9/11.” And last February, the always-war-hungry Tom Friedman of the New York Times said on Morning Joe that Russian hacking “was a 9/11 scale event. They attacked the core of our democracy. That was a Pearl Harbor scale event.” So, "Trump is going to push us into war with North Korea", "Trump is going to push is into war with Iran", "Trump is going to push us..." "Let's go to war with Russia!"

    Then you change the rules that he hasn't anymore. At least he can't contact the goalie prior to the puck crossing the line.

    Hahaha participiation trophies meeting merit competition. Outstanding point about the Mexican and the Tongan. And another reason not to watch the Olympics.

    The N+1th reason to kick performance arts out of the Olympics: French ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis suffered a “nightmare” wardrobe issue Monday during her short dance figure skating routine with partner Guillaume Cizeron when a clasp on her costume became unhooked. ... The French duo stayed relatively calm throughout the program and ended up with an 81.93 score that landed them in second behind Canadian stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who scored 83.67. It’s unclear if the score included a one-point deduction for the costume issue. Papadakis was on the verge of tears as she left the ice.

    Yes. Dead play and face-off in the neutral zone. The crease is goalie's realm. Probably, the crease could be made smaller by a foot.

    You can even simplify it by making a skater touch a goalie IN THE CREASE at any point a stopping event. If the skater was pushed, that's 2 min minor. If the skater made the contact himself, it's a dead play. Something like hi-stick and hi-touch.

    Dissecting millimeters can't help even with offsides. Here we're dealing mostly with issues "was the skater pushed, or did he move himself", which is almost always subject to interpretation. So I think the rule should be: if the goalie was touched in the crease before the puck crossed the line, no goal. Intention is not important. If there was a push, give a 2-minute minor to the pusher, but still no goal. Contact outside the crease doesn't count.
  8. Good game; was watching with one eye while preparing the documents for the meeting with the CPA on Thursday.

    From 2nd to 9th? They're something like 16th since the New Year. That's not bad. That's as average as it gets.
  10. My offense is worse, I think that sheep are different from men and women both.
  11. Here's an outstanding rebuke: America’s boys are in serious trouble. As Warren Farrell’s new book, The Boy Crisis, explains, boys are experiencing a crisis of education, a crisis of mental health (as in the case of Nikolas Cruz), a crisis of purpose. And at the root of it all is fatherlessness. Indeed, there is a direct correlation between boys who grow up with absent fathers and boys who drop out of school, who drink, who do drugs, who become delinquent and who wind up in prison. And who kill their classmates.

    Says the caitiff about the team that is 9th in GA in the entire league.
