    Streak is still alive, with Djokovic beating Nadal to make it to the finals against Anderson. Djokovic is the heavy favorite I have to think.. here's the Nadal/Djokovic highlights as well. Well worth the watch; happened over 2 days:

    Well, Serena had a lot of really good rally points and a few strong aces. But Kerber just played more consistent, with less errors. ESPN gives a really complete highlight reel here:

    Should be good.

    Video also points out that they are tied in Slam finals 1-1, as Kerber beat Serena in the 2016 Australian Open finals. So.. tiebreaker.

    The way that ESPN reports on the story makes me think there maybe something to her claims.

    Police investigate home invasion at house owned by Bills' LeSean McCoy

    Article says that police were in fact contacted, and that lawyers strongly advised her to take that twitter post down. I assume because they feel they have an actual case and don't want social media to muddy the waters publicly.

    Also, it says a few times the intruder asked for specific items of jewelry. And that McCoy had been trying to get the jewelry back for a while. So that's at the very least curious.

    Since the cops and league are involved and investigating this, you are right when you say don't jump to conclusions based solely off of a social media post. Those are far too easily believed and ruin careers, if by no other way than casting doubt forever on a person's character.

    I just don't understand why they act like it's so painful. There are no further penalties for extra pain. Just the penalty for the act itself, right?

    I'm not really sure. Maybe there are degrees of penalties. Like in basketball where there are intentional/technical fouls and just regular fouls, each with different consequences. Anyone here know how soccer rules work?

    Good call so far. Both made to the semis.

    Update:

    Semis are set.

    France v Belgium
    Croatia v England

    Sadly Brazil is out. On the flip side, Russia didn't make it either. So even's out. Wink

    Amazing what athletes will put themselves through. I know we have discussed in a prior Tour de France thread about how devastated these guys' legs and feet are after all is said and done.

    Vid does put the trek into good perspective.

    And then there were 8. In the World Cup quarterfinals we will see:

    Uruguay v France
    Brazil v Belgium
    Russia v Croatia
    Sweden v England

    Point of this thread is discuss the rest of the World Cup, on through the finals. That said, I'm happy to see France and Brazil in the quarterfinals. Unfortunately there is no way they can both make it into the finals to compete, but it would make for a great semifinal match to see both of them. That's what I'm hoping for.

    For the other semi match, give me Croatia v Sweden.

    Any predictions for the quarterfinals, semis or the final?

    And you're right. I bet those Arkansas players will have nightmares for years about that botched play that would have given them the win. I can't imagine how they are feeling today.

    Yeah man, for sure. After getting blanked like that in game 3, makes me wonder if their spirits were just completely deflated. That's not to say that the Oregon State pitching wasn't great, because it was. But to lose 5-0 in game 3 when you were one of the highest scoring offenses in the CSW for the last decade and competed so close with OSU in the first 2 games, it seems like it certainly played a factor.

    Game 2 was way more entertaining IMO. The best moment for me was the top of the 9th, with 2 outs, 2 strikes and Arkansas was up 3 to 2, and they were on the mound.. all they needed was one more out. One more strike really.

    There was a runner on third. Then a pop fly went up and 3 different Arkansas players went for it, in the out of bounds area by 1st base. 2 of the players sort of ran into each other, and a very catchable foul ball for the win was uncaught.

    That was a defining moment for the whole tournament. Right after that, Oregon State hit a grounder into left field and brought the on base runner in to tie the game, and then went on to score a few more times and win.

    If Oregon State goes on to win this series, that single missed opportunity will haunt those players I'll bet, at least for an entire year.
