Brilliant.
A Moscow court has ruled that Alexandr Zubkov will remain an Olympic champion in Russia, despite being stripped of his gold medals by the International Olympic Committee for doping offences.

no video :(

Cycling Tour Down Under finished today, managed to see last two stage finishes: Porte wins on Willunga Hill for the 6th(!) time in a row and Jasper Philipsen wins a stage in his first race for a WT-team (even if it was after Ewan was DQ'ed). May he win many more :cheers:

I'm also shocked there are any White Sox fans left after the Machado debacle. how did that happen!? are they too used to catch-and-release fishing or something? they had him!! and they let him go... and now my team has to play his punk ass 19 times a year for the next decade.

I think there are about 1100 of us left.

They were so enamored at potentially getting a future hofer at a fire sale price that paying a mere bargain rate was too much I guess.

Just move the fuckers to Portland and call them the Wet Sox. At least they'll draw more than 18k a game.

Rog Fed got his 100th singles title vs beta-Fed.
2nd man to do a century.
Funny how comparatively easy the SF and final were after the tougher first 3 rounds.

100 ATP singles
8 doubles
2 challengers
7 juniors
6 team cups

Felix Auger-Aliassime just beat Tsitsipas on big stage for the 1st time
This could be the next major rivalry.

Next come Bautista, Djere rematch, then Zverev and Djokovic. Very hard draw for the 18 year old.

Denise Herrmann -an ex-XC skier- just won pursuit at the world champs of biathlon.
The other day everyone on the podium in the sprint was sick, lol.

A Ukrainian biathlete who's never even been on a podium in world cup just won the other pursuit! I don't like him but what a race that was. Ukrainian men also win about once in a decade.

As a Phillies fan: :verymad: :verymad: :verymad:

But I wish Trout well in the rest of his career with the Angels, I sure hope they give him something to work with since he’s only been to the playoffs once so far in his career, and got swept right away at that.

My beloved Magpies kicked off the season last night in disappointing fashion by losing our season opener to a team we were expected to beat. Predictably some of our snowflake supporters are already writing us off. But I liked one fan's response and I think it's sound advice for supporters of all team sports:

Post subject: Are our Expectations Realistic?
'Oh how I wish that we could stop loading up our players with unrealistic, huge, unattainable expectations. How I wish we could see them for what they are - actual human beings who are simply amazing in what they can do - how about JDG when he shrugged off that tackle with supreme strength to kick a goal against the Cats!!! How about Jamie Elliott, fighting god knows what demons, to get himself back on the park?

Why can't we rejoice in what our players can do, rather than expecting them to always gratify our every wish? They are there simply to make our loves whole, are they???? Get a life then, I say.

Why do some of us love to rubbish our team if we judge that they have turned in a weaker performance against our oh, so high standards?

Why do we expect that just because we made it to the big dance against all the odds, that we will automatically get there the next year?

So many players are suffering from mental health issues, because we the supporters like to to sit comfortably and anonymously behind our keyboards, dealing out the criticism. Those who dished out on Adam Treloar tonight. Do you realize he suffers from anxiety issues????

Our players and coaches are human - they make mistakes, don't always perform at their best, although they always try to. Get off their backs!! They are capable of doing things that 99.9% of us will never do, with gut-busting courage that is admirable.'
