Agree Muddy, Davis Cup lost me a long time ago! I have no idea when they play anymore!

I guess that's the big thing with the new format. The whole damn thing happens in one place in, like, a week (or two?). With the old format, it was all spaced out. You would sometimes have matches happening for the next year before the current year had been settled.

Now on the minus side, one of our guys (Shapovalov), on the march to the final, had to play 8 matches in 6 days. Seems a bit much.

I think it used to travel all around too so each match was in the country of one of the teams. With this new format, the whole thing is one place. In this case, Spain.

Anyway, I can see pros and cons. I could see it getting more popular - maybe more like the Ryder Cup.

Or maybe not. I dunno.

When you duck jail time for tax evasion and rape it can get you flying pretty high!

The local venue of professional sport has hosted some whacky shit in the last day.

Last night the short-handed Raptors fall behind the Mavs by 30 points in the 3rd quarter - but come back to win.

Today the Leafs go up 3-zip - then give up 5 straight - and every kind of thing keeps happening before the Leafs come away with an 8-6 win.


Seems like the fans are getting their money's worth.

Watch out for hot roller skating prankster girls though!

They're very sneaky.
