I don't know if anyone has seen any of the Fast Times table read.  All star cast  Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew McConaughey, Ray Liotta (as Mr. Hand) and Sean Penn (playing the pizza guy).    Shia LaBeouf absolutely steals the show as Spicoli.  Dude was stoned or he's the greatest method actor who ever lived and he was hilarous.  None of the cast could keep a straight face and even narrator Morgan Freeman has holding back laughter.       If you have a chance to watch a few clips, please -  you will be thoroughly entertained.

Today I asked my son's satan cat "kitty, what is your destiny." She replied, "To **** as many other cats as I can. And to vote Trump."

I hate cats.

I think it's a ruse but it is a very well done ruse.

Public Service Announcement for those still paying on student loans....they are of course in deferral right now automatically, but you can continue to make payments if you can afford it AND 100% of the payments are going to principal.

It appears Doc Emrick is retiring.   

He is my favorite announcer in any sport.   Im sad to see him go but wish him the best.

yeah I liked him too....  some Red Wing fans didn't but I suspect that's because they 're used to Mickey Redmond's blatant homerism.

I can't think of any other American based national voice for hockey..... I still miss Bob Cole on CBC

Eddie Olczyk, NBC broadcaster
Doc is going to get mad at me for this, but what the ****? We still laugh about it every time we talk about it.

So just to take you through it: before the game starts, we always go over all of our graphics and the promos, and there’s rehearsals, right? The billboards are what we run coming out of a break, and usually on the national shows those are done live. On the cable channel, they’re usually taped.

So one day, we were in St. Louis, I forget what year it was, but this was right around when TurboTax had a breach. We were doing a national game, but our understanding was that we were in rehearsal when we were recording the billboards. So Doc is reading them — you know, a Bud commercial, like, “the NHL on NBC brought to you by Budweiser, United Airlines and TurboTax.” And without a bat of an eyelash, Doc goes, “And TurboTax, it’s amazing what hackers can do.” He just gives a quick little, you know, and we laughed.

Well, what ended up happening was, instead of doing the billboards live, they ran Doc’s taped version. So we’re sitting there and all of a sudden here come the billboards and I’m going, “Usually we read these live, but maybe there was a problem and I just missed something.” Then I hear, “And brought to you by TurboTax, it’s amazing what hackers can do.”

They just kept his rehearsal because they thought it was so good, but nobody ever caught it. Everybody was just roaring when he did it at rehearsal, but when it really went out over the air, trust me, there was no laughing when that happened. I’m not kidding you, his phone was ringing in the booth. He was on the phone with Lou Oppenheim, our agent, I think calling the sales department. I was like, “This is probably not good. We’re probably writing a check to TurboTax for $50,000 for the sponsorship.”

I've been pretty down this week.  On Tuesday I found out that someone I used to work out with took her own life.  I hadn't seen her in over a year, she was busy with her kids sports activities and such so she wasn't coming to the class anymore, and obviously after March they didn't exist.  For a few years we attended the same Thursday night class.  We'd talk about our kids and running and such.... they were in the same school system so she'd ask questions about things related to that.  Such a weird sensation.  I wouldn't classify her as a friend as we didn't really communicate outside of fitness activities.  But for a few years we were the two constants in that class among other revolving particpants so it was natural to talk.  My wife came to a class in the same room after ours was over so then she'd talk to her....I may very well have never seen her again anyway and never gave it much thought, I heard that they sold their house and were in the process of moving...  But hearing what happened and worrying about her family, who I only met once at Lowe's of all places, was jarring.  Seeing the social media tributes.... I keep thinking things like "What if I saw her that day in the neighborhood and talked to her and invited her to run or to come to one of our classes?  Would that have redirected anything?"  She was very happy and cheerful all the time. All smiles.  Someone made reference to depression and mental illness...   I'm not looking for sympathy because personally it's not really a loss for me as my life won't change, I'm not saying this for attention....  but look out for those around you.... they may not be doing ok.
