When MU played in the tourney in Boise a while back, I talked  to a local who expressed his concern for how Californians were affecting property values. Heard it in Oregon as well.

And Nevada, although the uptick is welcome these days.  They also had a hand in the run-up before the 2008 crash.

Yeah, my hometown in SW Colorado has had the same issue.  Housing is extremely expensive.  Very plain, basic houses pushing $500k+.  Many of my friends who still live in the area have moved to neighboring towns 15-30 miles away.

Bill Russell accepts his NBA HOF ring 44 years after he was voted in. Didn't think he should've been the first black player inducted. I only saw him at the very end of his career when I was young, but the guy had a nose for the ball.

Any of the old-timers remember Bowling With the Champs? I remember watching on Sundays growing up.

Milwaukee might be the only city that could maintain a locally-produced bowling show for 40 years.

Interesting article about a woman who had to choose between opera and basketball in high school, and chose opera.
Sounds like she was pretty good at (and serious about) hoops, but the opera thing seems to have worked out pretty well too.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/13/t-magazine/jnai-bridges.html?action=click&module=Editors%20Picks&pgtype=Homepage

As a high school student in Lakewood, Wash., she ran track and played basketball at the state championship level. She might have gone on to a professional career in basketball, in fact, had she not found opera during her senior year as a chorus member in Puccini’s “Tosca.” When a rehearsal fell on the same day as a finals game, her basketball coach made it clear she had to choose between the two activities. She never played competitive basketball again.

So I've noticed in recent years, blueberries have gotten bigger, which is stupid and I hate it. Blueberry pancakes worked because blueberries were small. Now when you flip the new, bigger blueberry blueberry pancakes, the large blueberries suspend the cake portion above the skillet, which leads to burning the blueberries and leaving the pancake undercooked.

Turn the heat down.   ::)

Also, if you buy the prepackaged mix that has a can of "real blueberries", those suckers are tiny.

My griddle is set to 225. Can't go much lower and cook them effectively. Not my first rodeo, I've been the primary cook in my household for around 20 years. Been thinking I probably need to go frozen, but I prefer fresh.

Meh... I would equate it to Disney buying ESPN (relative to what each company does, not the magnitude).  Brunswick is a lot more than just bowling and has been on an acquisition tear recently.  Ebonite was an easy target.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Good god, blue berries have been ruined because of how big they're growing them now!  Is it genetic modification or what??  Seriously, someone tell me.   This is not an exaggeration, I will not buy them anymore. 

Here's the deal, the meaty non-skin portion of a blueberry is gritty.  When the berries are small, you don't really notice this.  However, the bigger ones, it becomes very apparent.  As someone who finds texture just about as important as actual taste, I find the larger berries unpalatable. 

The only blueberries I'll eat now are the wild ones we find near our cottage up north. 

Man, it feels good to finally get this off by back!  I feel as if a great weight has been lifted!

I agree for different reasons. Tinier blue berries tend to be a burst of sour flavor but the ridiculous sized ones are incredibly sweet and leave me unsatisfied in my blue berry desires

I have blueberries for breakfast whenever I can find tart ones. As a general rule they are smaller and from northern states such as MI and NJ and at certain times of the year from Peru and Chile. Recently I ran across "giant" blueberries from Peru. Normally I wound not have bought them, .but I'm glad I did. They had a great tart taste and went well with cereal. Would highly recommend them to anyone who generally likes the smaller, tart berries I mentioned above. For those who like to freeze blueberries, these would seem to be a good option. FYI, I do not like sweet, mushy blueberries.

Reminds me of when I got my first nice car (using a work car allowance).  A colleague (who didn't receive a car allowance) asked me how I liked it.  I said my only complaint was that the button for the heated steering wheel was inconveniently located way down low.  As I realized the absurdity of what I was complaining about, I immediately followed up with, "And I'll shut the f*** up now."  We still laugh about it to this day.
