Yeah, outside of like golf and nascar, seems like we’re still more than a month away from any major sport starting back up. No new news on baseball and it’s almost June. Not a good sign 

Sounds like baseball is on a similar timeline. Not official yet, but I expect it soon.

Hopefully but if they plan to start in early July they better get it going. Need at least a 2-3 week “summer training”

Something has to be up with baseball. The Os released 30 some players so contracts must be getting done.

I'm hoping they still have the playoffs. The good news would be that with a bye, the Caps can’t get bounced in round 1.

How does the round robin games work between the top 4 teams in each conf.?

Didn't quite understand that other than it will determine seeds 1 - 4.

Yeah it’s just to get to the seeding, won’t eliminate any of the top 4.

If the NHL and NBA are going to do this summer conclusion to the season, are they going to delay the start of next season?  They can't go right from the playoffs to a short break to the full next season.  The sport calendar is going to be packed in Aug/Sept if this all works out.

Good point. Honestly I think the NBA and NHL should have just scrapped this year and start fresh for next season (hopefully). Baseball still has a shot to play half a season but it doesn’t make sense for the sports that were in progress. Just my opinion

NHL is trying for a full season starting in the fall but I can’t imagine that working out.

I heard from a finacial standpoint the NHL needs to have its post season. The NBA maybe not.

I read awhile back about a December start to next year with a full season and no all star break.

My personal opinion, but if the NHL starts its next season in December I'm OK with that.  The regular season is too freakin' long.  When they had the strike-shortened season it was great because every game meant something.  And the NHL Center Ice subscription was only 50 bucks.

Bobby Orr did his flying leap on May 10 (50th anniversary this year!).  Now the Stanley Cup final goes into June.  Even Canadians are bored with hockey in June.  They need to shorten the season.  They won't, though.

It's a week out forecast, but ensembles also look comfortably cool to ring in meteorological summer next week!

 

Indeed but the temp maps are valid 00z so what is shown aren’t the max highs, and the euro is most aggressive with the chill. But yes, we probably won’t go higher than upper 60s to around 70 Monday.

Funny excerpt from NWS Houston:

https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=NWS&issuedby=HGX&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=0

Beyond 240 hours? Why are you asking beyond 240 hours? If beyond
240 hours you go, only pain will you find. Yes, I see what the
GFS is doing way out there, and I bring it up for the SOLE.
PURPOSE. of being a buzzkill. We are now approaching the time of
year when the GFS loves to generate tropical cyclones in the
western Gulf out of the Central American Gyre in its extended
range. The GFS does this...a lot. Every once in a great while, it
happens in real life, too! So, if someone starts buzzing about
the hurricane in the Gulf in two weeks, let us all take a deep
breath and remember that far more likely than not, this is just
the GFS reminding us that it is almost June, and nothing more.
Regardless of what one model says about a couple weeks out, it is
almost hurricane season, and we should be working on being
prepared for anything that may come in the next several months as
a matter of course. 25

Rounding out happy hour with RAR out of order peanut butter and jelly sour. Yes, I’m ending happy hour early, trying to stick to just 2 beers in a sitting

So I bought a Honda mower today- the same one @George BM has and recommended. My dad has basically the same thing, but his has an electric start. I am good with pull start.

I'll get it put together on Saturday.

Enjoying an Oliver 206 IPA right now.
