130.01/ Week one-hundred and thirty, January 7-13, 2023, thread begins here.

Week 129 below.
130.05/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight continues (recommences) with "The Mummy" in honor of #Vayechi.

130.06/ Wake up, chevra, new Rav material just dropped: "Concepts in Halakha as Elaborated Upon by the Aggada and Kabbala"

130.08/ #Steelers season over, sadly. We were playing well right now - way better than Miami - but it's our own fault (never set your fate on a Jets' victory). 3 big reasons we came short: (1) TJ Watt injured for half the year (2) Trubisky's 3 INT game vs. BAL in w14 (3) our OC.
130.08b/ But can we enter into the record that Mike Tomlin is a HOF coach? The "never had a losing season" is a real stat, especially for the 2019 & 2022 seasons. No HOF QB (compare to Belichick's freefall). Mike T's secret? Treating his players with respect. #HereWeGo
130.09/ Seeing extremely iffy "roughing" calls (& other violence infractions) I now believe the #NFL refs were told to be over aggressive with those kinds of penalties b/c of the industry threatening injury to #DamarHamlin. If so, then I can't complain b/c at least it's something
130.10/ This is my response about #Steelers/Tomlin's achievement of no losing seasons.

Look: I'm a #Knicks fan which is a yearly disappointment. And, of course, there's the #Mets...

So having a team be relevant for every game of a season? Priceless.
130.11/ IMHO the Lions and the Steelers were playing very well right now & would make much more entertaining 7 seeds than SEA/MIA. That said, as a fan, an imagination fueled "what if" success story is more fun than seeing PIT get destroyed by BUF again.
130.12/ This is about Kornacki's schtick on SNF:

I agree with her. My response:

(i.e. it's just part of the show, which in itself is hokum. Data science for NFL is meh. It also leads to the dreaded N*teS*lver Effect)
130.13/ The real answer to this poll

is the Week 14 loss to BAL by "Mitchie Three Picks" Trubisky.

My hot take: we'd be safely in the playoffs if we started Mason. But, as I said in 130.11, dreams are sweet but cheap.
130.14/ As mentioned before, I'm the morning DJ at breakfast before we all leave for the day. This week starts the seasonal-thematic soundtrack for Shemot with this:

Although, as my SCW students will know, this is more appropriate:
130.15/ @jon_bois definitely deserves the NYT profile treatment so this was nice to see:
nytimes.com/2022/12/30/mov…
I was just praising this recent video to my family. I highly recommend it as an intro to his craft:
130.17/ Gotta say, wearing an N95 mask has really helped my efforts in ventriloquism.
130.18/ #Steelers fans were asked who they'll root for now that we're eliminated. In this type of situation, I don’t root for, I root against (BAL, CIN, DAL, Brady), but this year I think we all need a BUF-MIN Superbowl. That philosophical question can finally be answered.
130.19/ Aw man, Jeff Beck died. He was one of the best guitarists in rock.

Here's a personal favorite: "My Thing"
130.20/ [TW: book from required reading in high school]

This is brilliant.

(Re: George Santos; picture is the cover for "The Great Gatsby")
130.21/ This was mind-blowing: #NYR tying the game from a heroic effort by K’Andre Miller with less than a second on the clock (and then winning in overtime was just icing on the cake). This is why hockey is so much fun, no matter who's playing.
130.22/ #NFLAllPro list is out. Here's the full voting tally

130.24/ The #NFL 2022 Regular Season Chart is done. I needed a new color, orange, for the canceled game.
See here for background.

130.25/ It's getting late, so I'll sign off. Stay safe everyone and #ShabbatShalom!

202.02/ The internet is disappearing; I knew this in my bones & now there's data to support it. (h.t. @ParkerMolloy)

I encourage everyone to save pages to the @internetarchive as much as possible. An extension you can add to your browser to make it easy

202.03/ As a lifelong #Mets fan, I've experienced extended periods of the team being demoralizing and unwatchable. This is why I told my kids at the time that the DeGrom years were special: every 5 days there'd be a transcendent sports experience & those are rare.

201.02/ Has anyone checked in on the campus protesters, their supreme leader just died and they will be very sad to lose their moral guide. (BTW, I gave tzedaka in honor of the brave chopper).

201.03/ You know what? I'll accept that definition. Keeps things clear as to relative morality of each side. Tweet from @emmsadiq (Em Sadiq) 11:45 AM, May 19 2024: "If you're celebrating the news of helicopter crash, you're a Zionist." (419 retweets, 199 Quotes, 2827 likes)

200.02/ As a #MothersDay gift, honest and for true, my wife wanted to go to the #Mets game. And here we are! #LGM Picture of the Citi Field, uh, field from our seats
200.03/ Wow, a come from behind walk-off win by the #Mets! Gotta tell ya, they almost always lose when my family and I show up. But it was a fun (cold) #MothersDay
gift. #LGM

Week 198 below.
199.02/ FYI - I did some research and evidently the real 2015 ad this skit is parodying was about a father sending his kid to the US Army (i.e. the army was presented in the same gauzy way as college).

cnn.com/2015/03/02/opi…
199.03/ This is great.

IMO the 2 best are (1) PIT-BAL b/c both teams are always good, the games always close, violent & have playoff implications. (2) NYG-PHI b/c no matter how good/bad either are the game can go either way & the fanbases HATE each other.
