  1. I just saw Rafael Nadal defeat Donald Young in the 2nd round of Wimbledon, 6-4, 6-2, 7-5, and Young was *right there* in the 3rd set, breaking Nadal to get to 5-5, before the pressure got to him, and he hesitated on some really important shots. You can see this because there's a slight loss of intensity, and as so often happens, a player "pulls up" on their shots, instead of driving through them. When they're down, and their backs are up against the wall, players play like there's nothing to lose, and usually hit out with much more fluency. Still, Young taking Nadal to 5-5 at Wimbledon is an accomplishment - like so many players of today, Young has a tremendous serve and forehand, but his backhand is just too much of a weakness ever to crack the top 10 (not that this is any sort of failing). Donald Young and Mexican Santiago González got to the finals of this year's French Open Men's Doubles championships, falling to fellow American Ryan Harrison and New Zealander Michael Venus in a tight match, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-4), 3-6.
  2. In the midst of the NBA playoffs, the Warriors have beaten the Houston Rockets twice; once in which Stephen Curry played only 20 minutes, lit up the scoring, then got hurt and sat for the rest of the rout(game). In the 2nd match up, Curry didn't play due to injury...opening up tremendous opportunities for Houston. Didn't pan out though as the Golden State Warriors won again, even without Curry. Of course there could be a variety of reasons for the results...but one suggestion is that James Harden's defense is simply not that stellar. Below a video of some of his shining moments on defense: "Great Moments in James Harden Defensive History" on espn.go.com
  3. I just came across the Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales University in the "Where Have All The Diners Gone?" article posted in the Greek-Italian Diners thread. Despite having grown up in RI and still visiting several times a year, I had never heard of this museum, but I thought others might be interested to check it out if they find themselves in the Ocean State. Also, I always love to promote anything RI-related. If I make it there myself I'll report back!
  4. I remember seeing "Do The Right Thing" (1989) when it came out in the theaters and really liking it; this, after *detesting* Spike Lee's first major film, "She's Gotta Have It" (1986). The amount of growth demonstrated as an artist in just three years is amazing. Today, I watched the movie for a second time, and I'm becoming more-and-more convinced (as I watch numerous films for the second time that I first saw decades ago) that I had pretty darned good (or, at least "consistent") taste back then, when compared to my taste now. This film is cutting-edge, even today, and it's hard to believe it's over a quarter-century old - it has easily stood the test of time, and is not dated in the slightest. It converted me from being a Spike Lee detractor to being a Spike Lee fan, and if you haven't seen it, I encourage you to do so. Note that this is also the debut film of Martin Lawrence and Rosie Perez. "Do The Right Thing" was completely shut out in the 1990 Academy Awards. This is a better movie than "Dances With Wolves" (which was one of the first Best Picture Winners that made me realize the Academy Awards are a travesty - how could this not have been nominated for *anything*? Why are critics afraid to go against the status quo and use their own minds? What good are they if they don't?
  5. But what a cool-looking cover (I suspect that, along with the title, is why 80% of the people bought the book). Sadly, Oscar Hijuelos passed away just a few months ago. That's how I want to go, man - he collapsed playing tennis, and just didn't regain consciousness.
