    I assume it is the last time England was great.

    I have questions about the defense's positioning then.

    Sure thing, Mr. Simeone. Tons of highlights of that sequence on the youtubes if you want to break it down. It's a rather famous save.

    Nah- England made the semis in 1990 and again in 2018.

    This squad reached only the quarters.

    The NYT has been waiting for this nutball to kick it for awhile. You know this because, at the bottom...

    Dennis Hevesi, who died in 2017, and William McDonald contributed reporting.

    He outlived an author of his obituary!

    His "socialist" newspaper used to pop up at my college quite a lot. It was like a jargon-filled, rambling, leftish equivalent of The Pennysaver in its ubiquity.

    Bill Jenkins, a major figure in U.S. public health who is perhaps best known for his role in publicizing and forcing an end to the racist Tuskegee syphilis experiment, has died at 73.

    According to legend, one of only three musicians Leo Fender ever gave his unlisted number to-- Les Paul and Jimi Hendrix the others...

    Resting in peace not exactly his specialty...

    To celebrate his demise I've got brisket with cabbage, potato, carrots and onion in the cooker. He drove the snakes from Ireland only to have them all end up here. :mad:

    Ps...St Patrick was a Saint.....I ain't! :devilish:

    And here I thought I was late to posting an actual consequential person.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/16/obituaries/im-pei-dead.html

    I.M. Pei dies at 102


    I. M. Pei, who began his long career designing buildings for a New York real estate developer and ended it as one of the most revered architects in the world, died early Thursday at his home in Manhattan. He was 102.

    His death was confirmed by his son Li Chung Pei, who is also an architect and known as Sandi. He said his father had recently celebrated his birthday with a family dinner.

    Best known for designing the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the glass pyramid at the entrance to the Louvre in Paris, Mr. Pei was one of the few architects who were equally attractive to real estate developers, corporate chieftains and art museum boards (the third group, of course, often made up of members of the first two). And all of his work — from his commercial skyscrapers to his art museums — represented a careful balance of the cutting edge and the conservative.​

    Pretty much the only reason I can imagine going to the Rock and Roll Hall of Lame.

    HEY!

    Well, I mean it's a completely non rock 'n roll concept, but if you're interested in the history of 20th century music, it's actually pretty great.
