We cut our cable years ago.

We don't pay for Peacock.

Therefore, watching the Olympics is not available for us.

With that said, the winter Olympics just don't have the same pull as the Summer Games.

It's seems like an Olympics for wealthy kids that had parents that had the time to drive their kids to luge tracks  and the money to buy skis every year

I can see the relationship between the NFL and the Military Industrial Complex is still strong.

Amazon fronted the money to update the arena. But, they didn't want the Amazon name attached.

So much easier to follow a hockey game live than on TV.  The puck looks like it moves much faster on TV than it does in real life.

The arena was amazing.  My nephew said the visitors' lock room was beautiful and the crowd sounded extremely loud while on the ice.

After the game, he mentioned that the ice is made from reclaimed rain water...and the Zamboni is electric.  I guess they took their name of "Climate Pledge Arena" seriously. 

Blue Jackets ran up quite a lead, but the Kraken fought back hard and brought it to overtime. Columbus won 5-4.

Hoping he gets to stay in the big leagues for the rest of the season.

Heading to my first NHL game tonight.

Got my Columbus Blue Jackets' beanie on riding the Amtrak to Seattle.

Wish the wife and kids could join me, but I can't afford to take out another mortgage to get tickets for a home Kraken game.

Now, if only I can convince #5 to spend some off season time at the Ohio RTC and work on some takedowns rather than risk breaking a hand/wrist/finger while throwing a punch during a hockey fight.

Rumors abound that Logan included a "No KO clause" in the contract

If another exhibition, it won't matter because there are no wins or losses in an exhibition.

Tyson/Jones was an exhibition.
Paul/Mayweather was an exhibition.
Holyfied/Belfort was an exhibition.

Just sparring sessions. Nothing official

Fight night.

I still think Paul takes it.

Talk about anti-vax.   Families will just have to watch their youngins on TV.  Hopefully our US folks will have something better than NBC so they can actually see the competition their youngins will face.  And actually watch the preliminary rounds their youngins are in. 

mspart

It's NBC, it will be wall to wall coverage of swimming and gymnastics.  I assume you will have to catch clips on YouTube of other sports the following day.

Yes, it will be a boxing match. Much like the Askren fight, it will be sanctioned.

Current odds: 

-175 Paul
+145 Woodley

In other words, if you put $175 on Paul, you will win $100 if he wins.  However, if you put $100 on Woodley, you will win $145.

A jump to 190lbs +/- is quite a bit for Tyron.  Plus, the guy hasn't won a fight since 2018.  But, that fight was against a striker....which he won by early KO.

I see Jake Paul moving up to 4-0.

12oz gloves are big for professional fighters.  They are usually for sparring or for amateur matches.  Normally, the lighter weights fight with 8oz gloves and those in the middle to upper weights fight at 10oz or 12 oz.

I don't think Floyd has fought with such large gloves before, but I could be wrong.

It will not effect punching power, but will provide a boxer with a history of hurting his hands an extra bit of protection (Floyd). 

This match-up is still not sanctioned. So, even if there is a legit KO, there still will be no winner or loser declared.  Rather, the exhibition will end.
