Best Halloween costumes

I must be getting old because I didn't recognize 90% of the costumes.

I am reading Prisoner of Azkaban with my kids. I told them I was going to dress in all black and tape jokes to my shirt so that I was “Non-Serious Black.” One of my 8 year olds started crying and said she would be too embarrassed by me to go trick or treating, so I did not wear a costume. Upshot: it’s not just my wife who is embarrassed by me anymore!

Great athletes who were then suddenly not great (and not due to injury)

Expand full comment

whatever happened to Russell White?

Expand full comment

Everyone told him he needed more weight to survive in the NFL so he put on 15 pounds before his senior season. It wasn't good weight (or he didn't keep his speed) and he had a decent but not outstanding senior season.

Expand full comment

Ivan Rabb. Shoulda entered the draft with Jaylen! (altho I didn't have that opinion back then)

Expand full comment

I don't think Ivan's game was made for the 2012+ NBA era. Finesse power forward who doesn't have deep range. He would been great in the Jermaine O'Neal/Shareef Abdur-Rahim era of posting up 4s for face-up jumpers or one-dribble moves, but nowadays a 4 needs to be able to stretch the floor, rim run and jump out and guard wings and guards on pick and roll switches, and as much as I love Ivan, he doesn't have that tool kit.

Junior vs Senior year. Shoulda left early. Went into social work, iirc.

Lincecum? Brian Wilson? (Or were there injuries there?) With Timmy, it just seemed to be that he couldn't get anyone out anymore.

Expand full comment

Plus the League figured out Big Time Timmy Jim....started laying off that splitter in the dirt.

Expand full comment

More like his fastball velocity dropped, so hitters didn't have to start their swings so early and could more easily lay off the breaking stuff. If it was just about figuring him out they would have done it before he won the second Cy Young.

Expand full comment

Meh, agree to disagree - plenty of guys lose velocity but still get dudes out. When you no longer can count on your bread & butter pitch to get swinging strikes, it makes you susceptible to hitter’s counts…then they own you. Hitters adjust, pitchers adjust…Similar thing happened to Gausman this year, after a hot-as-blazes start.

Expand full comment

5 time NBA First team, 3 time defensive player of the year, center of a team that beat prime Lebron, 5 time rebounding leader, 100% sure fire hall of famers.

Hated him when he played for my team. He absolutely ruined the 2014 rockets but 2009-2012 he was one of the 6 best players on the planet.

Yeah, but does that make him "great" in the larger sense of the word? I say no - admittedly he was great for a short time, but even then he had liabilities.

Oh man, that guy's demise was quick

Expand full comment

Shaun Alexander (we can probably just list a ton of running backs who had 2-5 great seasons and then fell off a cliff - Priest Holmes, Christian Okoye, Larry Johnson)

Expand full comment

Running backs are tough to put on this list bc of the pounding they take…there’s no way they can keep it up. Even Derrick Henry, a Cyberdyne systems cyborg is breaking down.

Expand full comment

Not sure he was ever that good. He got yards and TDs in his first year, but that's because he had heavy volume. His yards/carry average was only 3.6.

Expand full comment

I think it was more about his production at Alabama and having a good rookie season on a bad Browns team.

Expand full comment

Yeah, I don't think his rookie season was actually all that good.

Dropoff from college performance, yeah sure, but there's a long list of those guys.

Yeah, he fell off hard. I thought he was going to be the best of the Saban era Alabama backs at the time, I was very wrong.

Between 1985 and 1990 I was a huge comics collector - mainly X titles (Men, Force, Factor, New Mutants, Wolverine's solo stuff) and very oddly the Avengers stuff I read was all West Coast Avengers, and that intertwined with the Vision and Scarlett Witch 12 issue maxi-series, that I really liked because so much of it wasn't about being super heroes, but super-hereoes trying to live a normal life. Which is what I kind of wanted to see from the D+ series.

Expand full comment

They might dive into that with Hawkeye depending on how closely it follows a seminal comic run that it's definitely taking some inspiration from.

Expand full comment

-6.25 L, -4.75 R

I used to wear contacts all the time, then at around age 30 switched to glasses for most work days at the office, contacts for weekend activities. I don't really have any problems with either.

For some reason my original eye doctor set me up with hard lenses when I first got contacts. This was in the 90s, when soft lenses were already widely available. Eventually I switched over to soft, which are much more comfortable.

Expand full comment

-2.25 in both eyes, it's been consistent for 10+ years now so I've been considering Lasix more and more every time I spend $200+ on new contacts

Expand full comment

I'd go for it...it's been great! (as typed below), I was ±4.5 for awhile. hoops, skiing (w/o fogged glassed), identifying the person sleeping next to you in the morning ;-)

Expand full comment

My vision hasn't changed for at least the last 17-18 years. I would consider Lasix, except for the night starburst thing that some people have.

Expand full comment

I kinda have that, particularly with red lights. but it's small potatoes compared to the benefits. like worrying about vaccine side effects as a reason for not getting vaxxed.

altho vax are free and lasic is not!

Expand full comment

Re: costs

Now is the time (open enrollment) to put aside money in your FSA/HSA if you know you'll be spending it on LASIK or other things (like sunscreen haha)

Also, you can get schedule a free consult at the Cal Optometry School to see if LASIK is even a good option for you. I went earlier this year, and they said no, but that I could consider PRK (I opted not to).

Expand full comment

I am blind as a bat (my contacts are -9.0 in both eyes, my glasses are god knows what, over -10). My nearsightedness doesn't bug me, my contacts are super comfortable and I don't even think about them.

But in the last 12 months I have started needing reading glasses, at very low power (+0.75) in low light, and I absolutely hate it. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when they're like +2.0!

Also, floaters suck, though they do seem to decrease over time, or maybe your brain just gets used to them. The first year they appeared, I really struggled with them.

Who knew that aging brought so many vision issues??

Expand full comment

My eyes were also that bad ever since a very young age. Always needed thick glasses. One thing, though, if you take your glasses off it's like having a 10x magnifying glass. I was always able to read the tiny print on things like pill bottles pretty easily. Sort of a weak super power.

Expand full comment

I started getting floaters about 20 years ago. they're weird, but I don't notice them anymore. I'm trying to see them now, but can't. I don't thikn they've disappeared, tho

in Soph year of HS, I was 20-16 vision. 5 years later, I needed glasses.

my eyes got to like -4.75/-4.25...and were like that for several years. then got Lasic in 2004 and it's been great. I need reading glasses, but don't use them

Expand full comment

i am respectably nearsighted, -4.00 to -4.50.

but my main issue is that i have astigmatism, about 1/3 of the power

back in HS i would wear hard contacts for many years. it made my eyes super red and i was super sensitive to any dust in the air.

HAG probably remembers that when we used to umpire LMYA baseball i would need to stop the game and tweak my contacts every time some little wind would kick up the infield dirt.

nowadays i have soft lenses but only wear contacts if i am doing something active or am outside and want/need to wear sunglasses.

Expand full comment

I used to have astigmatism, and wore glasses over my contact when I needed to drive at night, watch a movie or do a lot of work at a screen. It went away with age, and by the time I was 45 or so I was able to get rid of them.

Expand full comment

I didn't know astigmatism could go away.

Expand full comment

It can change, mine did, and now I have 20/20 (with glasses).

Expand full comment

i did not know that either.

Expand full comment

My ophthalmologist said that it probably fixed itself as a result of the changes in eye shape due to aging. I also needed reading glasses much later than most people (I am almost 55 and just started on them this year), and he thinks that the decrease in astigmatism was probably the beginning of the change that normally makes people need reading glasses, but it fixed a problem before it made a problem for me.

Expand full comment

Re: aging. It's been weird. I've got more than ten years on you and still have no need for readers. I've also noticed that my problems with distance have actually improved over the last couple years.

also, my younger one, 14, has almost the identical Rx as i do. we could swap contacts if we really had to

I have/had astigmatism, but never had a real-world effect

Expand full comment

-3.25 L -2.25 R. And it's getting harder to read with my glasses on.

Expand full comment

this is the first year that I've had real issues with night vision and reading things in dark restaurants (like I have to use my iphone light on menus all the time now). I got new contacts and it has helped .. . a little. but the vision thing was when I started feeling really old for the first time.

Expand full comment

It is harder for me to read with my contacts on than with my glasses. Although my glasses are .25 step lower than my contacts. Usually I only wear them when I'm going to be doing something in the sun for an extended period of time or something like going to the gym or something athletic.

Expand full comment

same. i even have trouble w/ the computer screen or phone w/ the contacts.

i have progressive lenses on the eyeglasses

Expand full comment

my glasses are only for allergy season, being in Beijing (or any dry dusty town) or when I have to watch Cal games at 3am and go to sleep at 8pm and wake up at 2:55am and try to get the illegal stream working

My issue is Kyle Shanahan - he's the most overrated HC in the NFL, and flat out does not develop players. Look at what he's doing with Aiyuk, after doing the same thing with Pettis. Kyle will be fired sooner than later.

Well I defer to someone with DC Trojan in their handle, DC Trojan...but again, it's a splashy hire, and the guy flat out wins at the collegiate level.
