Rog Fed finally eked out that 99th title. He got broken 13 times in 5 games like they were playing on clay instead of hard. :pinch:

Martin Fourcade's spree of 6 World Cups is already over. 4 races bungled this early is deadly when the other opponent is so fast. Still, that's only 2 races that won't be scratched. There's a slight chance if he podiums every race next year as has been done before.

I don't think many people here care about the NFL, but...Eagles sneak into the playoffs, the Nick Foles magic is alive and well! Go Birds. 🦅

"Go Birds" is correct, but the proper type of bird is a Sea Hawk. :guns: :cowbow:

Nah-ahh! :down:

Well, that's possible of course, but I expect it to be a tight game. If it's particularly cold in Chicago next Sunday and that crowd is as loud as expected, it'll certainly be tough for Philly. But we'll see. Trubisky's first taste of the playoffs, you never know how a QB in the playoffs for the first time will react. Eagles defense has finally started to generate a lot of turnovers lately, I'm counting on that to continue (hopefully).

Zverev seems to forget he's playing doubles and makes risky moves, which cost him the match on the last point. I went to their previous match (Hopman cup final 2018), and a similar thing happened on the 1st set tiebreak.
Rewatched that last point in slow motion B)
Sending the ball between the players when they're on the same line seems like a great strategy that paid off (not that Ben-derer were using it). Also, last 2 points both of them were at the net.

Not only did Ryoyu Kobayashi win in Bischofshofen today, he also binked the previous three events. That makes him the third athlete in the history of ski jumping to win on all four hills! :worship:

Some of you might remember what happened last year:

The moment I started loving Dennis Rodman when he was traded to the Bulls I knew I had no shame and would root for anyone wearing the right laundry.

The man is best friends with Kim Jong Un. He is somehow 57 years old. He became a "professional" "wrestler" while still playing in the NBA. He has either 27 or 42 siblings and his father's name is literally Philander. He co-stars with JCVD in the cinematic masterpiece that is Double Team. I am utterly bewildered but, yes, I can believe just about anything about Dennis Rodman.

500 years from now, Dennis Rodman will be one of those people that historians will have no idea how to separate fact from legend.
