Cup of Coffee January 6, 2020: Dang It January 6, 2020 hungry joe 24 Comments A small part of me wanted to catch at least a bit of that game, even despite the time. Kept waking up all night anyway. Ah well.

Did anybody catch the Golden Globes? I'd usually have no interest but Ricky Gervais was on fire! (And he's right about his good After Life was.)
I watched a clip of the monologue and enjoyed it, but nothing else. He was definitely not pulling his punches.
I appreciate comedians not pulling their punches. It reminded me somewhat of Colbert's Media Correspondent's Dinner monologue in that way.
Hey you Justin Vernon fans, a little birdy has told me that Mr. Vernon will be the surprise headliner for this show. Will sell out pretty dang fast once it's announced.
Let's see if someone will actually admit being a Justin Vernon fan.
**raises hand emphatically**
I'm probably not going to the show, though.
Werd to Rhu-Rhu: is this one of your lines?
Not a lot of clues in that tweet.
News story today says Crystal, MN. I saw this today while I was sitting in with a Canadian Pacific rep. I'm reasonably sure it's the CP Paynesville subdivision that runs right past our office.
Ah. We have some trackage in MN, but not as much as others do.
Crystal? If there is a better photo of the houses then I may have regularly crossed these tracks for school.
Where did you go to school?
Quite a few thanks to school mergers and hijinks later but at this point it was Cooper. That's in New Hope but we lived right across the border. Until I drove, I crossed the train tracks after walking the length of Sunnyside Park.
I doubt it was exactly here and instead the photo is from farther north when it crosses Crystal.
My wife went to Cooper
I only attended two school years, ending in '03. I forgot to get the prior year's yearbook so can only see any overlap from '03.
My wife was class of '00. She mentioned a guy in her grade with your last name. Do you have an older brother?
Not the Onion.
Couldn't you just have a coach having a headset and the pitcher and catcher having earpieces?
And then there those times when the infield is taking fielding cues off the catcher's sign as well.
What's all this nonsense with lights and encrypted random-number generator sequences?? If they don't want the Astros thing to happen again, then punish the Astros. Heavily. Start at the top.
It's just all so NFL-level absurd.
I don't hate the light scheme, but it is convoluted. I still think greater use of wristbands for codes could be useful.
I like the idea of a runner being able to steal signs if the battery is clumsy enough to let it happen. I don't really want to lose that.
Any technology-assisted chicanery just needs to be let with heavy punishment.
