Jaws is the most American 4th of July movie because it's the one in which an elected official acting on behalf of business interests allows several of his constituents to be literally eaten alive by a problem he was warned about

No need to reply, but please send positive thoughts or the equivalent in what you believe in.

Can't hurt, right?

So, the day before I got rear-ended by a drunk driver, the doctor informed us my youngest had a mass on her spine. She had been complaining of a pain for a year. We had tests done and nothing was found at the time. The doctor thought it was just a knot so we tried massage therapy a couple of times, but my daughter said it hurt too much. It gradually got worse and we had more tests done...MRI, cat scan etc...

The diagnosis is an osteo blastoma. It's a benign (PHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!) growth on the bone. It's about 13 mm in size. We are expecting a call from CHEO in the next day or so and she'll go to Ottawa to have it removed.

I'm going to breathe now for the first time in almost a month.

no, It's dumb.

Also, look at the schedule if this thing goes 6+ games. 7th, 10th, 13th. 2 days between each game. Way to kill any momentum this series may gather with casual fans.

Rules
Entrants will choose a fantasy team of 16 players consisting of one player from each of 16 groups of 4.

The fantasy team that accumulates the most Fantasy Points during the 2018 WSOP in Las Vegas will be the winner
In the event of a tie the entrant whose guess of the number of entrants in the 2018 WSOP Event Number #65 The $10K NHLE Main Event is closest to the actual number of entrants will be awarded the higher finishing position.

Fantasy Points will be earned by the Fantasy Players in events at the 2018 WSOP where they finish in the money (cash).

Base Fantasy Points are awarded on Fantasy Players finishing position in each tournament.
1st – 50 Points
2nd – 45 Points
3rd – 40 Points
4th – 35 Points
5th – 30 Points
6th – 25 Points
7th – 20 Points
8th – 15 Points
9th – 10 Points
10th – 18th – 5 Points
Other Cashes – 1 Point

The following are the modifications to the Base Fantasy Points for each event.

* Base Fantasy Points 0.5x in events with less than a $1k buy-in
* Tag Team Events Do Not Count
* Base Fantasy Points are worth double in events with a $10k buy-in or higher
* Base Fantasy Points are worth 1.5x in events with a $5k buy-in
* The Main Event is worth 3x the Base Fantasy Points.
* An additional point per 100 entries is awarded to players who finish in the top 18. No rounding off. An event with 87 players gets no point bonus, a 105 player field gets a 1 point bonus, a 265 player field gets a 2 point bonus, and a 1451 player field would award a 14 point bonus to all players in top 18. This is in addition to the base points and not subject to any buy in size multiplier.
* Events with a buy-in of less than $1k will have the field size bonus capped at 9 tables and the field size bonus is capped at 100 points.
* For every 1000 players 9 more players get the field bonus.
* In order to receive points, a player must cash.
* In a heads up or shootout event, players finishing in the same position would split the points for that spot. For example, 5th through 8th would get 22.5 points (plus field size bonuses) and be rounded up.
* Points will only be awarded in open events, no Seniors, Ladies, or Employee events will count in addition no Tag Team events being counted.

I haven't been more confident in a Vegas -1.5 win since the mayweather/mcgregor fight.

winner!
It looked like they were coasting for a while there, and then suddenly it turned ugly, but thankfully they got the empty netter to clinch. nice call!!!

I went back and forth on this bet all day. I liked them to win, I didnt have the nerve to bet -1.5. I had too much already riding on them winning, my version of hedging was to not bet more! lol

Aww Q, you big ol' sap.

Spoiler

i went & watched the clip, then listened to the original song. THEN i saw a version by the proclaimers. i like their music, so i gave it a listen. they slowed down the tempo of it too much. i peeked at the comments and saw a suggestion to play it at 1.25x speed. much better!

When I was just out of school, I bought $300 worth of cat food because the air miles bonus plus my points card actually meant that I got $1.15 for every $1 I spent. I had a cat but pretty sure I donated about $280 of the food to a shelter when I saw how much room it would take up in my 1-bedroom apartment
