1. Early Voting Attitudes - I voted early today, and well, it was quite the experience. I stood in line for over an hour with various first-time voters excited about having their impact on this election. The attitudes and hardwork of the poll workers was greatly appreciated. All in all, it was really a special experience to be part of, despite said long wait to vote.
2. Los Angeles Dodgers - They FINALLY did it! The Dodgers won the World Series after a few years of disappointing pursuits. I'm so happy for a guy like Clayton Kershaw who no longer has to deal with ridiculous narratives defining a generational career.
3. Sean Connery - 2020 rolls on and we lost Sean Connery this week. I've never been a huge James Bond fan, but I do remember how "Finding Forrester" changed my life as a young black kid growing up in Brooklyn. Connery's performance in that was amazing.
1. Walter Wallace Jr. - The names continue on... SMH.
2. Justin Turner - At first I found myself looking at the perspective of Justin Turner in the incident of him being positive for COVID and walking out onto the celebration - hey, it's a once-in-a-lifetime-moment, I can't blame him. And then I thought about all of the risks involved, the lack of accountability from MLB, The Dodgers, his teammates, game management, etc... And even the selfishness that went into the decision of Turner himself. Not ONE person stopped him. That event - with so many people, including pregnant women, could potentially be a really bad ituation. Hoping for everyone's sake and health, that it isn't. Baseball needs to come down on Turner for sure.
3. Election Overload - Are you fatigued? I know I am. But you have to continue on as Tuesday is going to be stressful - and possibly even Wednesday and Thursday. And so on. I still feel that 2020 is going to use up every bit of the calendar.
BTW - Please go vote.
Amy Coney Barrett - Speaking of fatigued, the confirmation ofAmy coney Barrett just felt "eh" to me this week. Not because I don't care, or that I don't understand the ramifications and details of what happened - but again, it just feels like the country is so ripped apart at it's seems that this is yet another tear in the cloth.
Oh yeah, go vote.
