    Ohtani v Red Sox tonight should be interesting, a sensational start of the season for both, but I feel that it'll probably cement what a talent Ohtani is and he'll be called the new Babe Ruth or something.
  2. Sport vs politics

    From the title, I thought this would be about the World Cup. Thanks for the interesting read, personally I don't see the "vs" between sports and politics. Sport has quite often been political, whether it is for diplomacy or feeding into nationalism or tribalism. With Man City, you can talk about whether there is any hypocrisy in Pep wearing the yellow ribbon and championing democracy while working for Sheikh Mansour.

    The reality?

    Does anyone outside Manchester care that much about City winning the title? I can't summon any emotion about this either way. I mean, I'm pretty sure what most people remember from the last time they won it was that Gerrard slipped.

    That was some drama in the Sox/ Yankees game! Kelly suspended 6 games and Austin 5 now.

    He would score a few and then apologise at the end of the game like he's done before. Looking back, that was ridiculously tense for a 5-1 aggregate score at the end.

    Cautiously optimistic for the second leg. Without Henderson and perhaps Salah, it will be a massive test. If we can bag one away goal though, then they will have to score 5.
  8. Will probably need to rewatch the first season. It's been a while and I can't quite remember if any of the named westworld staffs are still alive.
  9. Major League Baseball

    We will probably get some MLB games in London in 2019, hopefully it might become a regular thing. Baseball can afford a shift a few games abroad much better than the NFL. Not sure about having it at the London Stadium, even though it would be very convenient for me. I've never seen baseball in an oval ground, feels a bit too much like cricket. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/baseball/43473214

    I'm not sure what Liverpool would do with another £200 mil when they still haven't spent the £145 mil they got for Phil and the club seems to be in decent financial shape now after the stadium expansion. I know Salah has moved quickly from club to club a couple times to progress his career after Chelsea, but not sure how much he would really push for a move when the club doesn't want to sell. It doesn't feel that long ago when everyone was calling him a Chelsea flop.

    Rory gets the SK cars, poor guy. Feels like they blew the budget last week so we get this very ordinary one.
  12. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Some of the best feelings I had from the game was actually outside of it, when I went out walking around Epping Forest and Snowdonia. Sometimes when scene is just right; I get to the top of a hill slightly out of breathe and with nobody else around; i see horses and a stable in the distance bathed in light, and it just evokes memories from the game. For a split second, I feel that I could just glide down and just take one of the horses and just go anywhere I want for real. I thought that was kinda of priceless.

    I hope we can keep hold of him a bit longer, so I am going to say no.

    I don't feel that it's quite a rivalry yet, but if we know them out of CL, then it'll become a bit more like the one we had with Chelsea back in the Rafa days.

    You gotta give it to Mourinho, he pin pointed our (pretty obvious) weakness in Lovren and got two goals from it; used every trick in the book to slow the game down to take the three points.
