    Ah. Got it. I was sort of thinking something along those lines. Lamar is considered exceptional among other dual threat QB's because he not only can pass, but pass outside the pocket, yet he can run the ball a the same time, making him even more of a head ache for the defense than other dual threat QB's in the past, giving him the potential to be one of the best to have ever played.

    This guy is truly an impressive NFL player. I'm not a huge football fan so forgive me for the following question. Since you've said that he could become the greatest dual threat QB to ever play the game. And given that dual threats are rather rare in comparison to what you'd consider a standard QB. How would this stack up against every other QB who've been considered some of the best to have ever played? What I'm asking here is how much of an edge does being a dual threat QB give to a player when being compared to all other quarter backs?

    So that would make my prediction -- Yankees vs Dodgers in the World Series. From there I have no idea. But that would be an excellent World Series. Two of the most historic and iconic teams in the league, who have played each other 11 times in the World Series. But the last time was in 1981. So about 38 years in the making of a rematch.

    The Yankees are 8-3 vs the Dodgers all time in the World Series, from 1941-1981. Hope we get to see that rematch.

    I would most definitely second the Houston Astros pick. Then again, being a history nut, I would love to see the Yankees and the Dodgers in the WS. You hit the nail on the head. I can't think of a more iconic face off.

    I totally agree with you. I've never seen a better gymnast. She almost looks superhuman. Sean White and Tony Hawk are great examples of such talent. I'd say it certainly applies to Micheal Phelps and Usain Bolt as well.

    I sometimes forget gymnastics are going without the Olympics until something like this surfaces. Simone Biles became first woman in history to land a triple double during her floor routine at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Mo. Which was part of the Team USA Champions Series. I have to say it was very impressive to see. I think we take for granted just how difficult it is for someone to make their body do something like that. I think it happens because professional athletes make it look so easy.

    That thought brought me to pose a question. What are other examples of athletes doing something so well that they make it look easy? Are there any sports out there in particular that we take for granted in that case?

    Honestly haven't kept up with this lately. I saw you mention the Mavericks. What's currently keeping them from making it into such a conversation? Players? Coaches? etc?

    Just gonna say watching the two guys in the video attempt the last 65 yards of hole 4 was enough to convince me of how tough this course is. It's a par 4 and 500 yards. I can definitely see the point why it favors smart play over power play. Then again I could see it benefiting Mcllory in the long game, and yet punishing him for it. Then I could see the reverse with Tiger because he tends to be more methodical.

    I think every major sport is trying to condense and speedup. Attention spans are like that of gnats now.

    To be honest, this hasn't really ever been on my radar. I've heard some call it boring, and I've seen where other MLB fans will geek out entirely of seeing position players pitching, etc. I myself appreciate the bones of the game - what it was before, and what it struggles with now; home runs vs balls in play. To me, a crisp double play is way more exciting than a home run hit just over the wall, followed by fireworks and some tired sports theme playing over the speakers.

    When so much pomp and revelry is made about every single home run, doesn't it lose it's uniqueness? Well, to be honest, home runs aren't all that unique anymore. In may of this year, baseball set a new record for the most home runs hit in one month. To top it off, in June, that record was broken again. So doesn't that take away from the Home Run Derby itself? In a way, isn't just like watching a glitzy version of batting practice?

    Teams nowadays hire their hitters the same way they hire their pitchers. They want to see grand slams as much as shut outs. I think that's why there has been talk among MLB fanboys, to just leave the sluggers out of the Home Run Derby altogether. Which I don't necessarily agree with that idea. Does this take away from the reputation of MLB, or does it only further what seems like it's new viewer-grabbing doctrine?

    I really wanted to call everyone's attention to this if they haven't seen it already. It's what I believe what competitive sports are all about. No fluff or puff if needed to express moments like these. 15 year old, Cori "Coco" Gauff, beat Venus Williams 6 to 4 in the first round of ladies singles at Wimbledon, which is a feat in itself. What I find the most notable to point out, Gauff honestly said that if it wasn't for Venus and her sister, she wouldn't be there in the first place. It's a sort of passing of the torch moment - an age old story of the childhood hero becoming the ultimate challenge to prove oneself to the rest of the world. This young lady played her heart out, and Venus truly made her earn every point for the win.

    I truly love it when magic like this happens. It almost makes you forget the corporate/political hoopla that we see so much of in sports these days. Can anyone else think of similar moments like these in other sports? It sort of reminds me of a much less violent version of the final fight scene between Glatt and Rhea in the movie Goon.
