Remembering this hysterical Medvedev & Bublik point— The Tennis Letter (@TheTennisLetter) August 7, 2023
Daniil gets called for a hindrance after apologizing to Sasha for hitting him with a ball.
“Can you imagine how stupid this call is? This is gonna be on Tennis Tv, bro”
Bublik’s laugh says it all 😂
How can a tennis player hinder themself?
Jaire Alexander has a future on the mic.
Embracing and rebranding CTE is so very AB.

They didn't have to do Matt Ryan this dirty.

Never forget David Bowie’s biggest regret in life was saying once it was “great to be in Cincinnati” pic.twitter.com/IlYcX1uPDE— McNeil (@Reflog_18) September 10, 2023
One of Bowie's greatest regrets is saying that it was "great to be in Cincinnati." It wasn't.

Why weren’t you at the Taco Bell Punk Show on W. 117th yesterday? 🌮🤘 pic.twitter.com/SGiG6fxL9N
I bet Bowie would have pulled up to this Cleveland Taco Bell for the punk show in the parking lot.

On the one hand, there is Max Kellerman's very thoughtful statement above.
Disgusting footage from the Texas-Bama game. Racist Bama students yelling racist remarks to the Texas players.

Then on the other hand we have these racist Alabama fans yelling horrible things at Texas players.

Asif Khan posted a new article, Evening Reading - September 21, 2023
Bump for some popcorn https://i.imgur.com/KG8Q9Rs.mp4
Those popcorn videos seem unnecessarily complicated.
Evening Reading? In THIS economy?!
That table tennis dude just whiffed the jab into stepback roundhouse.
Asif! They made a new F-Zero game. Your lack of commentary on it is deafening!
Man today's (well technically last night but I'm old and see these in the morning) evening reading had a little bit of everything.
Grape popcorn looks terrifying to me, everyone apparently taunted Muhammad Ali (him saying the other guy was an uncle tom, wow), Alabama students are terrible, and now I'm terrified how everyone eats mangos. 40% of Americans don't have a passport but a bunny does and plants have a warranty from home depot. Already started off my day learning alot!
The cat we adopted from China had a little Chinese cat passport when we moved him to the USA. It didn't have his picture, but it had all his health info. Lemme see if I can dig up the image... ahh!
I really am learning alot today! That is such a neat little fact, thanks for sharing! I'm going to fall down a rabbit hole (no pun intended) on learning about animal passports, had no idea it was a thing.
Shaqnews, in this economy? Heck, I am interested in more Shaq News on Shack News. What an interesting American.
Love tiny Midwestern punk shows. Been to quite a few myself, back in the day. Poor Cleveland, getting clowned on by one of the world's greatest humans. They just tryin'ta have a punk show in a Taco Bell parking lot...dang.
