Coach B? Have heard nil besides the management book he is selling in Japan. Maybe JT should be reporting on his career instead?

Congrats Naomi!

A feel good story about her dad becoming her interim coach, even though she downplays his role in the quote. He was the one who had the far-fetched idea to train his first daughter Mari to play pro tennis on local public courts, with Naomi tagging along. From that humble start to the absolute top--amazing!

@fxgai--I dont think it is coincidental that she is playing better under her dad Leonard Francois. A laid back lowkey dude with patience for her quirky side.

Posted in: MLB sets strikeout record for 12th straight season See in context

@Yu--US minor leagues top out at 3A, so are you saying NPB is two levels above that? That would put those small ballers hitting your roof all winter above MLB level, would it not?

Tons of Ks are futile if you also lead the league in HRs like Darvish, who is a top 5 pitcher in Ks across the NL but with a 6-8 W-L record.

Serrano--by that standard, your list of Trump friendly entertainers is shrinking until all you are left with is Scott Baio reruns.

And a hearty tee hee thinking that you can no longer listen to the Stones after Mick shredden Dumpsterfire Donny.

@theFu--I pick none of the above. Her husband and adult children already live in the UK. She would most likely join them.

Posted in: Sumo champ Hakuho gets Japanese citizenship See in context

In other sports, if selling jumbo dogs, nachos, and plastic cups of beer is just as dignified and satisfying as the jobs of the guys running the teams on the field, then why does anyone go into coaching and managing in the first place?

Posted in: Sumo champ Hakuho gets Japanese citizenship See in context

@Yubaru--you are wildly off if you think that after a decade at the top spent not ruffling feathers, Hakuho is going to go looney like Asashoryu, get himself thrown out, and seek revenge by refusing to hire Japanese staff for his bar. But instead of drama, he is staying on track to be an establishment insider.

Posted in: Sumo champ Hakuho gets Japanese citizenship See in context

Hakuho found a suitable middle ground. He honored his national hero father until the man passed away, then got the citizenship to prepare for his future coaching career. Much more dignified for a yokozuna than opening a nabe restaurant.

Posted in: Police unsure why man went on shooting spree in West Texas See in context

The local police are hamstrung by the need to avoid pointing fingers and stir up their fellow townies, but one clue being reported by the NY Times is the shooter was fired from his trucking job hours before the rampage. Might be worth looking into.

@waka--tennis pros are paid by the match, so if Kyrgios plays only two matches in a slam before elimination, he earns enough to cover his fines.

Posted in: Woodstock generation looks back, from varied vantage points See in context

Of course it is tricky to summarize the life impact on 500,000 concert goers, but the artists there who didnt die soon after--Jimi, Janis--had pretty good careers. Carlos Santana in particular was launched to national fame by this gig, though it was epochal for Arlo Guthrie, Joe Cocker, Richie Havens etc. Joan Baez was already an industry veteran with a decade of records. Bob Dylan stayed home nearby with a loaded gun to fend off possible intruders.

@Mayumia82-- Ash Barty was knocked out in the first round, costing her the 1st place world ranking to Ms. Osaka. So should Barty fire her coach and hire the guy who coached Naomi?

@Noid--The border--not boarder--is open for commerce, travel, personal visits, and so on. Many Americans stay in Mexico part or all of the year. Only the clueless treat the border--remember no a--in partisan terms.

Also troubling is that besides this kind of atypical food festival shootout, less reported domestic violence / family feud shootings are ongoing with high casualties. Five killed in Wisconsin within a day of the Garlic Fest carnage, for example.

So Perot lost his chance because his pool of ex-military pals was thin on the ground. Clinton and Gore, though flawed, had mass boomer relatability down pat compared to their wooden rivals--GHW Bush shopping for socks or whatever he was up to.

I guess Perot worked on recruiting military background candidates like Jesse Ventura who won the MN governorship for the Reform Party. But Jesse the Body later got in a fistfight at a vets reunion, moved to Mexico, and disappeared from public life just like the Reform Party.
