Home court advantage?

Stanford men’s basketball team upset previously undefeated USC tonight, 75 to 69, in front of a crowd at Stanford’s Maples Pavilion comprised only of friends and family.

Tampa Bay Rays fans are going – and your point is?

As a baseball fan, as dire as it looks, I NEVER turn off a game in the bottom of the 9th. As a supporter of voting rights there’s no way I’m giving up until the Senate votes are cast.

So it turns out on top of the COVID issue, that Novak Djokovic lied on his visa application to Australia about his travel in last 14 days. Not only the world’s #1 ranked tennis player…but maybe the sport’s #1 example of “million dollar arm, ten cent head?”

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show covered Dr. Fauci’s hot mic moment w/ Senator Roger Marshall, who couldn’t” find Fauci’s public disclosures: “What a moron.”

Colbert “And now that moment lives forever on the Internet, where Senator Marshall & his staff will never be able to find it. “
