We’re gonna be here all week if we keep reporting every time Francesa becomes disoriented.
My personal favorite:
That’s an extremely cool dad.
Minneapolis resident here. Fantastic job with this article. The concern about gender-based repression is real, but it’s not paired with raw xenophobia the way it so often seems to be.
I definitely get the sense things are changing, that there’s a lot of ongoing assimilation processes. The third generation girls I…
I nearly cried! Muna and Weber are so wonderful, and it’s clear that these parents want so much for their children. The patriarchy is still a thing clearly, but I love seeing all the support from elders and male peers.
Most Twin Cities high school cross country and track teams have Somali students on the roster. Some of these prep runners have gone on to successful college and even professional running careers, like former Minneapolis South runner Hassan Mead, who represented the U.S. at the Rio Olympics.
To be fair, Modern has never been more fun. While Death’s Shadow is heavily played, decks like Storm, Skred Red, and even UWx Control are having plenty of success. With old staples still competing and Infect basically dead, I’m having quite a bit of fun with the 3 people I allow to see me play MtG.
It was a deeply weird thing to watch. Everyone involved was in-brand and on-message, which is to be expected, but the fawning mindlessness of their commentary made me wonder what sort of compromising photos Nike had used to hold each of them hostage. There were notes of Drago and Stepford, but nary a whiff of…
4:34 per mile for 26.2 miles.
Absolutely heartless, Sarah. I, and surely many others, feel badly for the brands.
I am training for a marathon now. I can not imagine the state of mind you need to be in to say “okay, let me see if I can do this again and again until I get my time under two hours.” Some peoples’ brains really do seem to work differently.
I began competing in T&F almost 25 years ago, close to the lowest point of US distance running. The guys leading the resurgence have been a few years younger than me and it’s been an awesome ride watching US distance running come back on the scene. We’ve scored medals in championship races in almost every distance…
The thing is... when Bannister missed the record, he could try again in a week or so. These guys are basically out of commission for months if they don’t make it.
Bascomb’s book mentioned here is outstanding. Very exciting, even though you know the outcome. Santee got screwed, as most amateur athletes in the states do.
You seem to be confused. A deferral does not mean that you don’t have to serve, it means you don’t have to serve *immediately*. Robinette was going to serve those two years, but it is common for the military to wait until your athletic career is over for you to serve them, because the early years of your career are…
If Grant Hill can singlehandedly make Fila a big time shoe brand in the 90's, The Ball Boys could make a not well known in the US brand of shoe a lot of money.
There was an interesting story earlier this NBA season about the successes of LeBron’s friends (maybe Pablo Torre wrote it?). And that’s a group of guys that is very very proud, justifiably so, that they proved wrong a lot of people who thought James made a mistake by handing his business over to his childhood friends…
Interestingly enough, the guy hails from São Paulo which has the biggest Japanese diaspora of any city in the world with over 1.5 million Japanese descendants living there.
And now for a quick reminder for everyone that free speech does not protect you from freedom from consequences and that the First Amendment only protects you from the government censoring your speech, private organizations can and will punish you for saying racist shit like this. This is because these organizations…
I saw a “Sports Life Stories” documentary on Ronnie O’Sullivan a few years ago. He has the layout for this 147 painted on a wall. He has such unbelievable knowledge of his game to know he can achieve a maximum break, especially with the reds still clustered.
