    RIP someone or another

    Damit, 70 is way too young and car accidents are never a good way to go. RIP, Chet Coppock, legendary Chicago sports broadcaster (talk shows). This guy was born to talk, just such a compelling character. Grew up listening to him on WLS. https://www.robertfeder.com/2019/04/18/sportscaster-chet-coppock-dies-car-accident/?fbclid=IwAR2Riam2lJ1ggcHcHtYr3RTa4g3qjskb3n_yz7AhiznRhLwMvufAj2xtMlE

    Loop pool table

    No kidding! I want one too. Cutting the slate just right would be the trickiest part I would imagine. Love the mathematics of it and the focus point. I think it would be something that people of all ages would enjoy and could become skilled at.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    That was great, Steve. Loved it!

    This is as cool as can be, and something I know that Shell will love. It's just amazing to me how it works. Watch the 3 videos for the math and such. http://www.loop-the-game.com/ So I got interested and emailed the guy for pricing. Turns out they're quite expensive, not surprising since they're handmade and quite tricky to get just right. Cost is £15,000 plus shipping. Gulp.

    This guy was here in Cayman these past two days, along with his wife. I couldn't be bothered to go to any of the events. Watched baseball and basketball instead. But by all accounts, they had a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for local people, especially the kids.

    Happy Birthday Voltron!

    Happy birthday, Al. Seems that you're on track for a great day.

    RIP someone or another

    Nah, don't mind at all, Al. Thanks Nate. If you go back to the very first post, you'll see why I gave it that name and the reservations that I had about it even then... little did I know that it would survive for so many years and become part of the fabric here. It's a great thread in the sense that it allows everyone to bring attention to notable individuals whose lives have been impactful in one way or another. But it was really meant for mostly for famous people who we don't have close personal connections to. Have to admit that it has creeped me out on more than one occasion for the very reason you mentioned, Al. Much better now. Reserve the right to call someone a fuck when they really were a fuck though... Charles Manson comes to mind in the not too distant past.

    RIP, Colleen. Sorry to hear this news, Bryan. Remember her well and celebrate her memory when you get together with your high school friends. We've now lost a bunch of people, but none were that young.

    Cool that you have the mount for your iPad and can drop it in any time you want to. Great outdoor solution. See what you mean about the shadows. In the first pic the board without darts looks positively bright. But I think you probably need to hit it from at least 3 directions, which then creates a logistical nightmare in terms of where to mount them. Like you say this is why the ring lights are a thing, although they really look odd to me - every single one I've seen. Trade offs.

    I wish it was that easy. Just pop in and out, here, there and everywhere. But maybe this summer.

    Ya, for sure. That would be fun. I can't believe your kids won't just quit growing and changing, and just stay the way they are! As for the cyclists hating the old fart out of shape e-bike pretenders... well they can all go fuck themselves. Hope they're lucky enough to get old and fat too. It's not as bad as people make it out to be.

    That would be fantastic. Loved Seattle on my one brief visit there. My friend in Tampa (who is the manager of the RV storage place that I've been basing out of with my motorhome for years) has one and loves it. He's in his early 60s and not as terribly out of shape as many people past 50 are, but has had serious issues with his legs as a result of a work accident a couple of years ago. So he uses the assist on hills and just when he's not feeling as motivated. Rides 4 miles per day and gets a little moist (where's Steve?) but not dripping in sweat. Feels good about just getting out there and doing something for himself and not having to get off his bike to make it up hills. Reading the reviews, seems like a bike that a lot of people in their 50s-70s are enjoying after they are effectively past the age/shape when they would realistically go out and ride a normal bike on a regular basis.

    Looks good. Ya, my G3 didn't come with the Rotafix mount either, but I've got 3 of them coming. The battery powered Viper lights have arrived. Hard plastic, but certainly functional and will work well with the octagon shaped backboard, the sides of which are maybe an inch or two longer than the lights. Just need to build a frame around the backboard so I can mount the lights properly.
