    It's not flopping generally, it's kicking out the leg to make contact with the defender and so to try to draw a foul.

    Ha yep.

    Silver City has a similar climate to Walla Walla. If you can handle Walla Walla, I you can handle Silver City. Though the last time I was in Walla Walla, it was pretty hot.

    We pretty much do in the summer. The heat here (and that it's only increasing) is one reason I suspect we won't be here forever.

    But Silver City level heat? Totally manageable. My car claimed it...

    I do think it was a particularly important hold of serve though. With the Celts winning two in a row to knock off the champs, they were riding high on momentum and so it was important for Miami to...

    Lowry has been injured and not played well recently. How much he's recovered will have a big effect on the series. I agree with you on the other points though. They are a much more diverse offensive...

    Robinson has barely been in the rotation lately, but it will be interesting to see if he reappears. I've always really liked watching the Heat under Spoelstra. They are always well drilled and play...

    Cool. it wasn't exactly my top choice to visit for a day, but a really long layover is better than a medium long layover as you can break up the trip by hanging out somewhere new. Thanks!

    Wow, that is a monster. I lived most of my life in the NE and even then don't think I saw anything like that. Though it is one reason why I prefer more sidewall regardless of vehicle.
