First off — Happy National Running Day! I’ve also seen it posted as Global Running Day. I don’t know which one is the right title. But, I’m keeping it close to home and calling it National Running Day. Anyways — hope you spend it RUNNING!
I hate the internet some days — okay, most days. But, I’m so sick of reading people’s armchair expertise rants about the gorilla incident at the Cincinnati Zoo. It’s truly a sad outcome to have shot such a beautiful and endangered animal and I’m sure the mother and child are just as traumatized and sad about the incident.
But, seriously, people need to stop being experts on social media. Everyone is condemning the zoo, is condemning the parents, condemning the mother, condemning whoever gets the ire of their outrage at the moment. Stop. We don’t have the full details yet. You’re not an expert and more than likely … you weren’t there.
So just stop.
I’m first and foremost a Jazz fan — always will, always have. But, I’m a general fan of basketball — especially good basketball. That’s why the Warriors have been so fun to watch this past year. But, I can’t tell you how happy I was to see them beat the Thunder. Not, just because I want to see them catch history, but because I loathe the Thunder.
Why? Well, because they are the former Sonics. I have a special place in my heart for Washington and the Seattle area and I was actually in Seattle the day the Sonics officially moved to Oklahoma City. I felt so bad, because that’s like if the Jazz moved elsewhere after 40+ years.
Anyways — I loved this piece about the Thunder’s loss on Monday.
Mary Poppins Returns? Oh man — I’m excited! But, why do we have to wait until Christmas 2018?! I have no patience.
Interesting allegations about the Biggest Loser. Not sure what to think other than — I’ll hold my full opinion until the whole truth is out. But, it wouldn’t surprise me — knowing a little about TV production, everything isn’t what it seems and they push the boundaries.
