re: Remember Kerri Strug on a bad ankle at '96 Olympics? - SpqrTiger
To the people defending Biles by suggesting that Strug should not have made that final vault attempt, let me ask you… do you think Strug regrets doing it? I haven’t heard her say that she does. The answer is probably hell no she doesn’t. If she walks away from the opportunity, nobody remembers he...

re: Does Pole Vaulter Mondo Duplantis not want to compete for the US in the Olympics? - SpqrTiger
I would have more of a problem with it if he just left the US for some reason to train in Sweden and chose to represent them. If he couldn’t make the US team, for example, and chose a random country to squeeze into the games. But he’s legitimately half-Swedish. If he wants to show his mom’s coun...

LSU alum boxing in Tokyo Games - Ginny Fuchs - SpqrTiger
Just saw a women’s featherweight boxing match on USA Network featuring a former LSU track and cross-country athlete, Ginny Fuchs (2011). First I’ve heard of her… just thought I would pass along. -Spoiler- Fuchs won her match via split decision. ...

re: 3x3 Basketball - SpqrTiger
As bad as these teams are… remember, the US Men did not even qualify. I have a feeling that somewhere in the USA, there are some basketball studs growling over this shite. Revenge tour coming in Paris. ...

re: Michael Thomas to miss start of season because of surgery. - SpqrTiger
I've been beating this same drum for years: the Saints need to upgrade the WR corps. How the Saints did not address the position in the draft is mind-boggling. Now the chickens have come home to roost. Congrats to Trequan Smith, I guess. Our new #1 receiver. 80 career receptions. 1100 career yard...

re: Killing Eve - SpqrTiger
Makes no difference. It’s not an overt girl-power show. Women are in positions of power, but it’s not forced. I like the show. It’s fun. ...

re: What's the most impressive thing you've ever seen? - SpqrTiger
The ruins of Pompeii were the most impressive thing I’ve seen. I spent the day there a few years ago and it still stays with me. When you are there, you can visualize the whole city moving around you as it was. When you walk through a house, and there are many, it’s easy to figure out how they l...

re: Kevin Love withdrawing from Team USA - SpqrTiger
Team USA has lost the eye of the tiger. That’s the problem. Nobody’s hungry. We need to go for the throat every four years and dunk like animals on the corrupt-ass Olympics every chance we get. But no. We have to do this song and dance every once in a while where we go embarrass ourselves so...

re: Is It Fair To Say That Woke Gen. Mark Milley Would Have No Problem Killing 75M Americans? - SpqrTiger
The biggest problem in this thread is that we have a general in a high ranking position who actually thinks that guns win wars. People win wars. Willpower wins wars. He thinks he’s going to be able to use big guns against a decentralized enemy? What’s he going to do? Nuke Dallas? Use a B-52 ...

Chris Cornell’s death really got to me. I couldn’t listen to Soundgarden for at least a year afterward. It just bummed me out. I was so sad that I would never see Soundgarden again. ...

re: Can you speak any languages besides English? - SpqrTiger
French and German. Can also read Latin. I get rusty at all of them because I don’t have much occasion to use them other than reading. I like to read French. German not as much. Latin is sort of like a giant word puzzle. ...

re: Is 1917 one of the best war movies of all time? - SpqrTiger
I said it when it came out. It’s a good movie that is near great but not quite there. I liked it, but shy away from ranking it up there with Saving Private Ryan or Full Metal Jacket or Platoon. ...
