Cavs just made a boatload of huge moves 

I saw something on the local news about that, Cavs got younger, faster, more physical including Larry Nance Jr a big strong above the rim guy......former Cavs player's kid.

the truck guys raced here years ago quarter mile track and for some dumbass reason the owner thought he could make more money with it as a dirt track (NOPE) guess he didn't figure the upkeep was so spendy it has been closed for awhile now

Ive always wanted to get an old beater and bust the windows out to race at dirt tracks around here.

Demolition derby type of racing where you go home with only the steering wheel.

Have you been to Bristol speedway?  As I said, I passed by it and stopped to take a couple of photos.   It does look very small....compared to the others I have seen in like Talladega etc.   It is bowl shaped....and only looked a little bigger than like old Three Rivers or Riverfront stadiums, which it reminded me of.

No, never been. Just watched races there on TV, but Ive never really watched a whole race at any track.

Ive driven by Kentucky, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Kansas

Ole Jimbo did pretty damn well with all those last minute signees. I like the fact we got a couple of SEC sized RBs to get the tough yards and keep the D off the field. Not a bad haul for such a late start. Has a decent start for 2019 too.

Youre a history buff for sure.

How about the military parade on 7/4/18 to commemorate the 100 year university of the end of WW1? I will go if it happens.

I don't think we need military parades in this country.  That is what insecure dictatorships do. (of course...we have a wannabe one of those).

Just a regular patriotic 4th of July parade will do fine.  

And besides....if a parade to commemorate the end of WWII were to be held...it should be held on November 11 (the date of the armistice) ....not on the 4th of July.  That is for  another event...our Independence.

Yes WWII had VE day and VJ day and I'm a big WWII buff and couldn't tell you either of them for sure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now back to sports, but some of these side trips can be interesting.

Just off the top of my head:  VE Day was like May 5th or 6th.

VJ Day was like August 8th.  (both 1945)

Now I will look them up to see how close I came. 

Edit:   OK...I was close:    VE Day was May 8, 1945.   VJ Day was August 14, 1945.

A bomb dropped on Hiroshima  August 6th.....then the next one on Nagasaki on Aug. 9th.

Kind of amazing some remember 11/11 at 11 am but WWII didn't have the same finish line type dates and times, maybe because it was so spread out all over the world and not just in one theatre of operation. 

Also many WWII guys like my dad and father-in-law just wanted to come home not talk about it and go to work. Getting raised through the Great Depression had something to do with it.... I think. Total war is never fun.

I don't like Motorized sports....but I do like "cross" when it is done on like  snow boards or ice skates:

There's a big old sports world out there that doesn't include a ball...... You should give it a try. 

I know that "driving to the hoop" (LMAO), "going across the middle" or "laying out for a fly ball" (LMFAO) is totally radical to some, so I'll just leave real radical here........... (he gets up and finishes his run)

I said I don't care for MOTORIZED sports.    There was no motor on that bike that I could see. 

So, your ASSumption was completely wrong.  There was no ball in the ice cross, snowcross etc. either.

Yes...he is the motor....so...ergo...it is non-motorized.  They have 4 different kind of biking events in the Olympics:   track,  road race,  BMX, and Mountain biking.   All good.  But no motors. 

The only kind of motorized racing I would have much interest in would be like  Rocket Ship racing.    First ship to Mars wins.

Desperation? The last act of one of the best NBA players ever LBJ, I wonder how close he comes to the all time scoring title?

Since were talking watch some NBA, scouting combine, the the draft. Skiing at the Olympics.  BTW, my math says LeBron will need around 5 seasons averaging 20 PPG to catch Kareem. He might do it if he stays healthy.

12 noon Gold Zone DAY 2......if you click on this it goes into great detail on all the stories and even brings up the live streaming feed if you want! Far out!

All the best action from the past 24 hours of the 2018 Winter Olympics, condensed into two quick hours!
