I'm really not joking about that. It's true.

Cavs' Kyrie Irving on 'Earth is flat' comments: 'I know the science'

Cavs' Kyrie Irving on flat-Earth backlash: 'It's OK to have your own thoughts'

Kyrie Irving’s “flat Earth” comments reveal the danger of science denial

denverpost. com/2017/03/01/kyrie-irvings-flat-earth-comments-reveal-the-danger-of-science-denial/

My flat earth brother, Mr. Irving, has walked back his initial comments, and I don't blame him. He has a multi-million dollar career to protect. I don't. But there's no way he changed his mind. Once you go FLAT, you cannot go back. You cannot unsee what you have seen. You cannot unask the questions you've asked. You cannot reverse the changes that happen to you mentally and spiritually after you've accepted the truth of the flat earth.

I'm still dealing with those changes. It doesn't appear to have an end to it. On balance, it's made me a kinder, better person, believe it or not. Mr. Irving is a great ambassador for the modern flat earth movement, even if he isn't trying to be.

The movement is growing, at a rate that's surprising even to me. I may be the first person you've ever encountered who seriously told you the earth is flat, but I won't be the last. :)

"The Cavs, and my flat earth brother, Kyrie Irving, pulled out a win tonight. At least it won't be a clean sweep for the Warriors. :)"

Here in NJ the weather in the winters goes up and down and can be tricky to freeze a deep lake so you can skate on it. But not as bad as a shallow lake. So pretty much got to skate every year. It was a huge private ice rink. :-)

Having lived on a shallow lake for 20 years I learned to ice skate...and yes it can be very tiring.

Soccer has 17 'Laws' (rules), 10 of them deal with uniforms, number of players, officials, duration, field, how you score etc... Two deal with fouls. Then you have rules on corners, throwins, goal kicks, penalty kicks -- all pretty easy. But the one law that confuses everyone - incl officials - is the offside law. What constitutes it, the various variations, the weird loopholes. And add to it that it requires a human observing to do something physically impossible. I do also think that 'added' time is another part of the game that confuses many people's

@ Perfectmatch I'm going to discontinue in here for the time being as I find myself getting really angry and that's just silly. It's a game we both love. The skills and athletism required to play are near Herculean.

I hold no grudge against you~

re: soccer - soccer/hockey/lacrosse all have very similar overarching concepts re: layout of the playing space, lines/offsides, etc. Yes the specifics are different but conceptually, they really aren't very different.

I rarely venture in here, but I will tell you this: hockey is, in my opinion, the most physically demanding of all team sports. The intensity and sheer thigh-burning energy expended during play is so grueling that they need to switch fresh players out every minute or two.

I haven't played since I was a teenager due to an ankle injury. But wow you are the World's Sweatiest Bastard after playing that, even if it's in below freezing temperatures.

I watched most of the game at the bar I was at.

I have to admit I have no idea what was going on most of the game.

I have the same problem with soccer, although most of my kids have played.

I need to sit down with the rules, and then watch some games so that I can appreciate the nuance.

Although I can see how tough it is. Skating for that long is tough. I played water polo in high school. The hardest physical thing I have ever done.
