Week 66 below.
67.02/ Another #NFL Scorigami!

Even sweeter: a final score with a 5, the 2nd best score. #1 is 4 (happened only once, in 1923) #2 is 5, #3 is 2, #4 is 11. The best is a 1, but it's never happened in the NFL.

67.03/ 1. Sara is absolutely correct: the ketuba is a pre-nup; the husband pledges a sum of money to the wife in event of divorce or death.
2. In addition, as an officiant, I *require* a pre-nup. Specifically the one from the RCA:

65.02/ My name was captured by a bot yesterday... so how was your Shabbos?

Note: I have not given an interview about the Mets nor should that be of interest to anybody.
65.03/ Today is the first FootballMas since 2019! The happiest day of the year!

[FootballMas is when there are NFL games on at 9:30 EST, 1:00, 4:00 and 8:00. All day football is fun.]

It was hard to hear the irresponsible discussion that I heard on @BallySportsSD between @DonOrsillo, @Mudcat55 and @mlb commissioner Rob Manfred during #MIAvsSD game. The #DeltaVariant will insure that the #CoronavirusPandemic will continue through the end of the season.
Anyone who follows the news know that the pandemic is ramping back up.

If you were to write your #NFTcv what would be included? I've got mine down to 8 projects.

I started #NFTs In 2017 with @CryptoKitties, trading my way up from 1.5 ETH, I grabbed some @larvalabs #Cryptopunks and #Autoglyphs and then started making a living flipping @CSCgame packs
I then heard about @F1DeltaTime & @Topps GPK on @WAX_io. Trading my way in those markets.

I then went nearly all in on @nbatopshot from Alpha day 1 onwards, we all know how that went..

Recent highlights include @BoredApeYC, which has been my most successful buy-in since @NBA
There are a lot more projects in my 3-4 year journey, but these are some of the highlights. I continued trading in and out of these projects over the years. #NFTcv

I also skipped a lot of craziness with @rariblecom and other platforms too

45.02/ Re-upping this thread from Friday about journalism and why the NYT can be seen as biased vs. Arabs & Israelis.

45.03/ I just wrote up a follow-up to the above thread that goes deeper into my social-scientific (data-poor, sorry) analysis of the American perception of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

...just like jackie before, elaine steward would never have had the oppty to be a front office exec in #mlb had it not also been for?

a: bill lucas, gm atl braves, early 70s was another pioneer who died young (age 43) aftr breaking thru the glass ceiling

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Luca…
...that's how life & #mlb works, the threads of our lives all intersect in ways today's fans don't understand?

a: bill lucas' wife & daughter carried his torch further, now part of a powerful network of corp ceo's & board of directors across usa: delta & pepsi -> #mlb to change
...lucas's sister was married to hank aaron, so?

a: #mlb long benefited frm aaron & other humble, gracious men who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to insure baseball owners would *not* return to the past, to drag the game back to it's pre-1947 days, to set a better example

...america must finally heal it's wounds, both past & present?

a: #mlb has the golden oppty to be the bright beacon on the hill, like jackie robinson did in 1944 before he was a dodger...
...jackie, a man of character & deep sense of being a servant leader, was so moved by his ordeal as a young 2nd lieutenant, it forged him into his later success in 1947 with #mlb...
...today like then, there's still dark forces who want to take our nation backwards, #mlb can't repeat that mistake as the game itself is being pushed to evolve?

a: jackie knew he couldn't just dream abt a better world, he had to stand up for others...

Going to do the #30DayMapChallenge with only baseball data... Should be fun.
Here's day 1 (Points).

Day 3 of #30DayMapChallenge (Polygons)... Here's a Voronoi diagram using #MLB stadium distances to create team boundaries. Pretty cool results. Image

15.01/ From last night, about the newest COVID outbreak from within the White House. As I've said before, the core value of Pence/GOP is anti-expertise, which leads to their self-destruction
15.02/ #Steelers @ Titans is the game of the week and as the picture below shows, nearly everyone in the 50 states will get to see it except... me in Jersey. But I'll get to listen to the game on my laptop, 10-70 seconds behind (why?!) #HereWeGo CBS broadcast map for 1pm g...
15.03/ @Dameshek is (basically) my age and we were both kids in Pittsburgh at the same time so we have the same abject fear of Mr. Yuk.

I have been a lifelong Dodger, Lakers and Rams fan. Sports have been an integral part of my life. High school sports were the primary incentives for me to bring my butt to school and to get myself through high school and eventually into college. If what is happening in sports
doesn't shock and scare you, you are wearing blinders. These sports figures are celebrating chaos, the denigration of our nation and our constitution. Drew Brees speaks up and he was forced into an apology. Brian Urlacher speaks up and he is quieted and disowned by the Bears.
Advertisers pull contract deals from athletes that don't step into line. The Chinese communist party can successfully threaten the NBA for speaking out for the freedom of those in Hong Kong and the NBA acquiesces. Like it or not many of our youth who don't understand that Lebron

With this, following on the mass positive #COVID tests in the #Marlins clubhouse, there's no way this #MLB season happens. And all the other sports will be cancelled as well. Mark my words. Now let's take this beyond baseball and sports and look at things from 30,000 feet (1/7)
We were told in mid-March that if we locked down—really locked down—for 2-3 months, then we could start opening things up safely by July-ish, and maybe we'd have school this fall if we'd really beaten the virus. It was called quarantine. We could've lived with that bargain. (2/7)
Instead, in some states, thanks to, yes, #Trump and some stupid, Trump-loving propagandists (I mean #Republicans) running the show, they opened up in early May because they wanted to own the libs. And they shunned masks and hit #Fauci because they wanted to own the libs. (3/7)

Hmmmm 14 #Marlins players and coaches have tested positive for #COVID in the last few days. #MLBOpeningDay for them is cancelled. That's BASEBALL, where most of the game is spent as far away from others as possible. Anybody out there still thinking #NFL is a good idea this year ?
How on earth are we trying to do something today that didn't work 100 years ago when there were fewer people, and less opportunities for transmission? College football and whole baseball teams sat out in the 1918 Spanish Flu sports.yahoo.com/coronavirus-he…
It would be better to START a season late, or not have one at all, than to START a season #NFL #NBA #MLB and then have to cancel it because players and coaches get sick from #COVID or worse die.

Ocho representantes de la región fueron convocados al clásico de mitad de temporada para así igualar la marca impuesta la campaña anterior en el capítulo que comenzó en 1951 con el venezolano Chico Carrasquel y el cubano Minnie Miñoso como pioneros.
La Liga Nacional se impuso 6 carreras por 5. El premio Jugador Más Valioso de la edición celebrada en el Metropolitan Stadium de Bloomington, Minnesota, lo obtuvo Marichal luego de lanzar tres innings en blanco. Así por primera vez un latino conseguía el galardón. #MLB

1- Senta que (com um dia de atraso) lá vem thread...

O que o NY Mets, o Romário e a Albânia têm em comum? Todos se ferraram com um esquema de pirâmide!

Todo dia 1/7, o ex-astro do baseball, Bobby Bonilla, recebe em sua conta um depósito de 1.2 milhão de dólares do NY Mets.⚾️
2- No ano 2000, após uma carreira de sucesso com o Mets, Bonilla já caminhava para a aposentadoria. Pra encerrar o contrato, o clube tinha que pagar U$5M, mas o jogador fez uma proposta interessante: não me paga nada por 11 anos, e depois deposita 1M por ano de 2011 a 2035.
3- Porque pagar mais de 20M quando poderia pagar 5M? Parcelar uma dívida é sempre interessante, mas havia algo por trás dessa decisão. Os donos do NY Mets (o Botafogo da #MLB), apostavam que uma aposta com um investidor de renome tornaria o clube bilionário!

Informa @JonHeyman que @Mariners dejó en libertad a Carlos González. #MLB
Hoy @JonHeyman aclara que la información con respecto al venezolano que publicó ayer es errada. El jardinero sigue con @Mariners. No fue dejado en libertad.
Por otra parte, una fuente cercana a Carlos González me informó que ayer el jardinero recibó una llamada de parte de la gerencia de Seattle para decirle que, contrario a lo que se había dicho horas antes, tenía hasta oportunidad cierta de hacer el equipo.
