    I did not say there was. It is just that those that are prone to believe or make up such will find ways to create conspiracies no matter if they exist or not.

    Actually I think that it is the fault of the dozen unicorns that shot Kennedy from the grassy knoll or the aliens that kidnapped Elvis, because they loved his singing, and replaced him with an nonliving clone to fool the dark forces of the establishment. Placing his clone on his toilet was just a joke on the Memphis police.

    I thought Nostradamus predicted France would win.

    the USWNT had the oldest average age at 29 years.

    Deserving, of course, but I think Simone Biles made a case.

    One of the things that I like about women's soccer is that I can always get a good seat at a game for a modest amount of money. If it gets too popular, I'll have to change favorite sports.

    How are the crowds at curling matches? Do they call them matches?

    he are called games, which consist of 8 or 10 ends ( more time to get another beer)
    the object is to throw a stone down a sheet by pushing off a hack to get closest to the button in the house. Three of your mates tend to housekeeping with brooms.

    in the old days it was an excuse to drink whiskey out of doors.

    championships fill up an ice palace ( think NHL hockey) chances are you will be looking across 3 sheets to watch the game you are interested in and the action will be at the other end.
    Club play is worse. You might be expected to peer over as many as 32 sheets to watch your daughter curl.

    I just noticed they placed Carli Lloyd way in the back in the corner. I wonder how one can interpret that.

    Loved this quote from her Rapiness

    “People always wonder, How the hell do these women act the way they do?” Rapinoe says, still relishing the triumph months later. “That’s the world we live in. There’s so much joy in realizing that the President of the United States can come at us, and we’re like, pfffffff, we don’t even need to respond back. There’s joy in realizing your power.”

    It's amazing how times have changed from the 99' World Cup when Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton were at the USWNT match and then Joe Biden attending the 15' World Cup match and Obama giving them a call right afterwards and inviting them to the White House. Never in a million years would I believe you if we had a President that would bully Rapinoe and criticize her and then pretend that the USWNT didn't even win the 19' World Cup. That just shows how important it was for the USWNT to win for the country and make the President look small, I heard he hates when people one up him.

    The words badassness <bad-as-nes> and badasserie <bad-as-uh-ree> appear in my latest edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary.

    Unlike all other entries, no words are used to define badassness and badassserie. However, this picture appears in that place for both:
