I don’t expect us to get any 40 degree swings right now, but 30 degrees is pretty common here and 40+ in the spring and fall isn’t all that uncommon. The triple digits are going to be a killer for the cherry growers as they are going to need to be harvested ... more »

7.8 seconds left, Sun’s ball. Got a feeling that they’ll score and win it. Didn’t get to watch till midway through the 4th, but wish Paul and Leonard were healthy because this could really be a great matchup.

Just looked at the ‘context’ and it looked like Cox took offense to Stephenson saying that Tomac had a good moto, and may have found some suspension that worked for him. Steve quickly turned it into a pissing match. Pretty much exactly how most of us ... more »

Two of the most successful apple growers ever (back before banks and pension funds started buying out orchards and moved heavily to corporate farming) would probably be referred to as “hippies” by most here. But they were incredibly hard workers who ... more »

Holy cow, thought that it would be a lot cooler when we get home to Washington but not very much. We are pretty much right where it says 107......

Just landed in Palm Springs a little bit ago. 115 degrees and a 15 MPH wind must be exactly what a convection oven feels like.......!

Ooops, I was one offseason too early. They signed 4 year deals with player options for the last season. That’s when Harden also has a player option. So hopefully this team gets a decent amount of rest during the offseason with some considerable amount ... more »

Holy shit, the Bucks coming back after the first 2 games seemed unimaginable to me at that point. But they did, and they earned it. I’m sure that the games would have been different if Giannis didn’t do Irving dirty, but he did so we’ll never know just ... more »

I had a feeling that this year’s Utah team was very much like our 2001 Seattle Mariners baseball team. They won 116 regular season games that year (most since the 1906 Cubs at the time), but just weren’t built to handle the intensity of the playoffs. ... more »

No, not forgetting any of that. I noted very clearly that when Griffey returned to Seattle that he was different than when he first played there. And yes, the local media did accurately report on many of those differences. They probably downplayed them, ... more »

Griffey was treated well and treated others well most of the time. There were some local sports reporters who took issue with his leaving Seattle, but that’s about it. When Griffey returned at the end of his career he was somewhat changed, mostly because ... more »

At this point in his career, Griffey was treated as a God by the media. And the media really has nothing to do with it. Kyrie may have an amazing grandfather, but obviously that’s blinded you to his actual actions and attitudes.

Not sure if you are cognizant of the irony about me taking anything personally when you had to resort to an ad hom just a few posts above..... You may choose to believe in St. Kyrie because of your relationship with his grandfather. That’s your subjective ... more »

Perhaps like me. Perhaps not. We all have our peculiarities. It sounds like you are trying to excuse Kyrie’s poor behavior and attitude instances because his mother died when he was young. That’s a silly thing to imply. I don’t think that anyone is happy ... more »

It isn't really a matter of moving the dirt landing closer. The dirt landing is not very changeable over the course of practicing, etc. The ramp can be moved forward or back to change the distance between the two, though. It almost looks like his front ... more »
