A few thoughts on the Bjorn Borg victory over John McEnroe in the 1980 @wimbledon men's #tennis final #WimbledonRecreated

Just like the @DetroitPistons had to lose playoff series to @celtics before winning @NBA finals & @chicagobulls had to lose to the Pistons before defeating
them & becoming the champions & @stanwawrinka had to lose some epic 5-setters in Grand Slams before breaking through to defeat @DjokerNole & @RafaelNadal & @rogerfederer en route to his Grand Slam victories, McEnroe took a rough beat, especially when he dropped the 2nd set
despite all of those opportunities. His grit in the 4th & 5th sets proved to everyone, most especially himself, that he should hold the #Wimbledon trophy, and indeed he did, several times.

This should encourage @ThiemDomi, who has come close to winning a grand slam. IMO, he's

With all of this #wayfair trafficking going on, I began to dig really deep. I was led to other websites and documents that seem innocent, but upon further inspection, too many coincidences. Now I may be off, but seems to me that a lot of gaming sites are harbors for #trafficking
I forget exactly how I came across this site, it may have been originally through #yandex but anyways, in looking up this sectional, I was led to this site and read the description and thought it was odd. ImageImage
When I clicked the See Customer Reviews, I was sent to todlong.us. When clicking on the button, I was led straight to Wayfair.com general product page. Image

The years 2015-2020 have revealed an insidious disregard for the #female category by #OlympicGames @olympics executives and their corporate sponsors.
Male (XY) 🧬athletes now allowed into XX events.
Time to take stock re #women’s #sports.
Where did we begin?
Where are we going?
Our story begins in the Egyptian Middle Kingdom (2000 B.C.)
Forms of women’s competition were somewhat different than we experience in 2020 A.D.
Contests revolved around two key aspects of #Egyptian life:
1. Food acquisition- #hunting & #fishing
2. Entertaining - #acrobatics
True #sports for women really began in Ancient Greece during the Classical period (400 B.C.). Unmarried girls had their own private competitions - also at Olympia every 4years.
These were separate from the men’s games.
The festivals were held in honour of Hera, wife of Zeus.

#thread: One of the biggest differences between the Western world and India is the preservation of historical structures and creating awareness about their history. One exception is Deccan Gymkhana.

2020 in the business of sport? Consider this A to Z thread of things to keep an eye on as your cheat sheet for a new year. #sportsbiz
A - ATP Cup: Men’s #tennis has yet another team event joining its cluttered calendar to sit alongside the Davis Cup and Laver Cup, as the politics of the sport play out in public. The ATP’s new management have lots to do - hopefully it includes developing a mixed team tournament.
B - Budapest: Quietly and confidently emerging as Europe’s latest major events host, with a trio of @EURO2020 games, the expanded @FedCup finals in April and the start of May’s @giroditalia making this a big year. An Olympic host in the 2030s?

🌟It is Friday! Does anyone want to take a closer look at the Paralympic sport pictograms featuring Someity? 🌟 @Tokyo2020
Someity's name comes from someiyoshino, a popular cherry blossom variety! Someity is a cool character with tactile sensors and super powers. It can send and receive messages telepathically using the cherry blossom antennae on both sides of its face! pictogram of someity with cherry blossom chequered top
Someity can also fly using its ichimatsu-pattern cloak. It is usually quiet, but it can exhibit great power when necessary. It embodies Paralympic athletes that demonstrate superhuman power. It has a dignified inner strength and it also loves nature.

I am #FedFan. I can only tolerate watching @kandersonatp defeat @rogerfederer at @wimbledon in 15-20 minute chunks. I had watched most of the 5th set live, and I'm watching it now from DVR. Just reached Kevin's break to go up 6-5 in 3rd set. #tennis
Watching this is like watching a disaster movie. Knowing how the match or movie ends, innocuous events which the participants hardly notice loom large. 4 example, the valve improperly turned off at the nuclear power plant or the transposition of numbers in the airplane manifest
4-5, Federer missed a backhand passing shot that would have given him a 0-30 lead. Serving at 5-5, Fed narrowly missed two first serve aces. Could've, should've, would've. & I feel miserable.

.@realsportshbo revealed another ugly aspect to @NFL concussion story: Under existing terms of settlement with @NFLPA, board administering funds has denied most claims & major diagnoses such as behavioral issues & depression are not even covered. #labor #publichealth #oligarchy
.@nfl claims that many applications r fraudulent. Of course, people should defer to the league, since it's an expert in fraud. It misled its labor force for years about dangers of the sport & it has misled municipal governments into subsidizing its stadiums #GameRecognizesGame
This story represents almost everything wrong in #USA. #Oligarchy begrudges slimmest slices of pie to #labor, & we the #Idiocracy buy billionaires' merchandise made by more oppressed workers elsewhere & use $ from public treasuries to replace functioning stadiums for those with
