Baseball fans, of at least two teams, are happy now that the World Series is set. Congrats to the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays (although for 2020, we really need the "Devil" Rays name back).
Now well into October, 2020 continues to be the annoying canker sore that never heals. Tropical storms Delta and Gamma are winding themselves up to hurricane levels in the already-battered Gulf. Someone please adjust the spanning tree algorithm and send them to the wildfires in California.
The sports world is slowly getting back to normal. Pro football started when we expected, while baseball started way late. The World Series will end in November. The Stanley Cup Playoffs may end tonight or Wednesday (go Stars!). The two NBA finalists are set (LeBron again? Of course).
We’ve learned many new things this year, including that we can have too many hurricanes for the list of approved names. What happens after that? We start on the Greek alphabet. Hurricane Beta is hitting Texas and Louisiana this evening.
Are you ready for some football? College and NFL fans should have plenty to talk about at the water cooler, er, Slack / Teams sports threads today. The first quarter of some NFL games were a little sloppy, but seconds quarters looked pretty good in most cases.
It's August, it's summer, and it will be miserable outside for many, especially those in the Northeast. Get ready to pretend you're in Florida, with feels-like temperatures around 100 because of the high heat and higher humidity. Enjoy!
Congrats to NASA and SpaceX and Elon Musk. For the first time in 45 years, American astronauts ended their journey in the ocean rather than in Russia. On the other hand, Musk has managed to do what NASA first did with Mercury 3 in May 1961.
In a year of nothing but curveballs, we may actually get some official ones soon. Last week we were hopeful but this week we’re confident. Major League Baseball’s long-delayed opening is set for July 23rd and 24th. First things first: have you picked your fantasy team?
Anyone remember what “normal” feels like? We may get that chance if Major League Baseball throws the first pitch on July 23rd. Leadoff? The New York Yankees, the most loved and loathed team in the game. Now for something we all love: IoT newsbits we missed.
