Weird series for sure. Celts will be difficult to deal with when Porzingis comes back. Jaylen Brown is a man. Best player on the Celtics this postseason for sure. I'm hoping for a Mavs sweep so both teams will be rested and primed for a long Finals series. ...
I've got Luka/Kyrie over Tatum/J Brown, getting to the second level it gets tighter if Porzingis is back and maybe on the second level I might give White/Holiday/Porzingis the nod over PJ/Gafford/Lively (shout out to El Dorado, AR) But its really close. If the Luka stays healthy enough and Mavs ...
if a gym is available, yes I try to do some portion of my normal routine. If not, I'm gonna at least do some cardio. I feel better when I do, and there are always enough hours in the day when I'm on vacation. ...
Not a bad start for the boy: 21/4 K's to walks, 11.8 K/9 and 1.00 WHIP, I'll take it. ...
Damn I hated Laimbeer and the Pistons in those days being a Celts fan. That has a train wreck quality to it, but I'd rather not see people getting mugged like that anymore. I have nostalgia for 70's through 90's NBA, but I enjoy the product in the modern version for what it brings as well. ...
[img]I'm seeing used cars on the lots with 15k miles selling for the same price as brand new ones. Why on earth would you buy lightly used cars at this point if new is the same price? Cars used to drop like 10k price after being used.[/img] They can't do that unless the car has been previously ti...
This is the kind of little nuanced thing I love about sports. The game within the game kind of stuff. Football, Baseball, Basketball and Tennis are all that I really know well enough to look for that stuff (and pretty much all I watch on a regular basis), but I'm sure it translates across almost all...

Keeping this thread alive - Root Beer today. Lots of wrist time lately. Happy Memorial Day weekend, and a sincere thanks and note of remembrance for all of those who have given their lives in the service of this country. It is a debt that can never be repaid, only remembered with reverence. [img...
wearing a Richard Mille on his wrist in the pic in the linked article that goes for about 500K USD. That'll be an asset for the court to go after. ...
Basketball is down my list of favorites, but the NBA playoffs continually are one of the more compelling spectacles in sport - its now always the finals, but you can bet there are going to be several higly enjoyable series every year that make it hard to turn off. ...
I'm 55, not going back and reading this thread, but I would say that hopefully most of your groundwork is laid financially by now, if its not, not sure I have a lot of advice and I'm not gonna focus on that. From a health standpoint, (1) tighten up your diet - if you are eating a lot of processed...

[quote]VC overseas is my dream watch.[/quote] The new ones are better. They have the date window at 3. Mine has that eccentrically located date window between 4 and 5 that I've always held against it (there is a pic of it somewhere in this thread). The bracelet is cool - the links resemble the Malt...

[quote]Amybody got any thoughts or other suggestions?[/quote] I have a thing for dual time zone watches and GMT watches and have several - mostly GMT Master II's of recent vintage, but a few others as well including IWC and the Nomos you see above. I would give the Longines Spirit Zulu time a l...

Have you seen that new (at least I think it's new) Royal Oak Jumbo Extra Thin with the grainy textured blue dial in 18K WG? It is a real stunner...and only 82K USD lol. I missed the boat about 10-15 years ago on RO's. Probably shoulda bought one instead of the white dial VC Overseas I bought. ...
[quote]additional 10+ yards[/quote] That's just trying to make a situation sound worse. Think about how long in time it takes a car (or even a person) to move 10 yards...almost nothing. This part is silly and just another example of trying to use language to make a mountain out of a molehill. Hell,...

Nomos Zurich World Time Nachtblau - perhaps the least legible watch that I own, but interesting nonetheless. [img]https://i.imgur.com/qBAKyZph.jpg[/img] ...
Damn I remember all of that like it was yesterday. Good times. ...
[quote]Why would a cop jump on a car turning into a golf course? Even if this wasn’t someone in a marked courtesy car, jumping on the car in a non emergency situation is just overly dramatic and stupid. Doubling down with an assault charge isn’t going to go over very well.[/quote] I regret that I...
