Because I Said So!
Veteran WNBA player Becky Hammon is joining the reigning NBA champion San Antonio Spurs’ coaching staff.
I HATED this girl when she played against the Lobos, which is probably all I need to say about her basketball skills. (“Aw shit, Hammon has the ball AGAIN. Let’s get ready to get those points back.”) Actually pretty excited to see her in this job.
sometimes i think that i am not so stereotypical of an american
and then i remember that i consider the coke freestyle machine one of the greatest modern inventions

over 100 choices, computerized mixing, one spout, touch screen, ice dispenser

LIME FANTA IS SO GOOD OMG
Cherry-Vanilla Dr. Pepper.
Orange Coke is the best.
HOLY CRAP WHY DID I NEVER THINK OF THAT
OK, backstory: The day after our wedding, my grandparents hosted a barbecue at their house and invited all the family and some of the guests from out of town. Ostensibly it was a gift-opening party, but really we just wanted a little more time with people we don’t get to see that often.
But anyway, the relevant part: My grandpa had set up two coolers of drinks. labeled for convenience. One said “Coke / Sprite” and the other one said “Diet Coke / Orange Coke.” I was amazed — was this a thing they were making now and how did I not know about it? Maybe in my time abroad it had escaped my notice (and, er, continued to elude it for a year). At any rate, I needed to try it.
I should have known better, because this is a thing we do in New Mexico, but I was still disappointed when I opened the cooler and found Diet Coke and … orange Sunkist.
And now Coke Freestyle machines have been a thing for YEARS and I STILL haven’t tried this.
The Albuquerque baseball community has lost one of its biggest fans, and a guy who was a staple at the ballpark for decades.
The Isotopes aren’t going to be the same without this guy. I have almost never been to a game (going all the way back to the Dukes) where he wasn’t sitting on the aisle with his megaphone and his uniformed rabbit. Wish I’d thanked him when I was thinking about it.
