    Eleven of my picks have died (plus one other with NQOs). For anyone unaware, there is no time limit on post editing in this forum. So the tidiest way of keeping your scores up to date is to go back to the post that contains your team, and cross out your picks as they fall off the perch.

    Master of the classic tasteless joke, you know, of the mysoginistic, xenophobic, homophobic kind. He had faithful fans since the 60s and 70s and was a living capsule of simpler times.

    Aight got my test result back after 24 hours. Fast. It didn't say "negative" but instead "not proven". Guess it means the same. Good to know.

    My mum was never up when I left for school in the morning, so I could have gone dressed like a Black Sabbath groupie for all she knew.

    Vladica Popovic, who played at the 1958 and 1962 World Cups for Yugoslavia has died in Belgrade aged 85. https://www.eltiempo.com/deportes/futbol-internacional/perfil-de-vladimir-popovic-tecnico-yugoeslavio-fallecido-527900 As a player, he collected several league titles, all with Red Star Belgrade. He began his managerial career in Venezuela before moving on through to Colombia and eventually to Peru's national team. That came after he led Red Star to a double of the Intercontinental Cup and the Yugoslav league after he succeeded Ljupko Petrovic who had led Red Star to the European Cup in 1991.

    Biden is expected to announce his VP selection as soon as later today, but no later than on Wednesday, per this NY Times article. I was thinking for the longest time that it was going to be Kamala Harris, and it still may be, but circumstances have now led me to believe that he is going to select Susan Rice, which I believe would be a mistake. A couple of weeks ago, it was thought that Biden was going to make the announcement during the first week of August. Then that Politico article hit, where Chris Dodd (a former senator and the leader of his VP search committee) made some disparaging remarks about Harris. There was blowback because of that, and Harris-backers actually had a call with the Biden camp later that week. Then an announcement was made that the decision was going to be delayed until the week of August 10. Unless he legitimately could not make up his mind until he got right down to the wire--and that stuff rarely happens--my theory is that if the pick was Harris, they wouldn't have delayed it. If the pick was Harris, you'd want to get out in front of that blowback immediately. But if the pick is not her, delaying it so that some of the blowback dies down would make sense. So that's why I think it's not Harris. We'll find out soon enough.

    The problem with Gates isn’t his illness. The problem is he is just the dad of a far far more famous son and nothing else. What next, Andrea Swift deserves to be on the list cause of her brain tumor? Give me a fucking break.

    One that went unnoticed at the time, even by the usually excellent Cricketer magazine: NZ keeper-batsman Graham 'Jock' Edwards, on 6 April. Big Jock played two Tests in England in 1978 but in a wet summer his agricultural approach was ineffective and he was replaced behind the sticks by opening batsman Bruce Edgar for the last Test.
