Out of the Blue

If Barry Bonds isn't a Hall of Famer by the end of the day, it's a failure by the Hall of Fame. Complaining about "anti-PED propaganda?" Argh! This thinking makes me want to punch someone. The argument to allow blatant cheaters into the hall because there may be other bad people in there already is dumb. Guess what? There are also some players in there that don't deserve it based on their careers. Does that mean they should now let everyone in? Argh. Screw Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, and the rest of them. I haven't been able to enjoy baseball the same way since their heyday, and I will not forgive them for that.

Sorry for so much sports rambling lately. It felt good to get that off my chest, so I appreciate the indulgence.

Indulgent Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

I rarely use FB these days, but when I do, it seems to just be people Wordleing.

Today, 2 different people got today's in 3, despite having only the middle letter in the second frame. I call shenanigans.

Anyway, I got lucky by making a dumb guess in 2 that actually paid off well, giving me the most difficult part

People who play the common letters had patterns today of like two empty rows and then guessing the full word.
Only had one vowel today, and then after playing the common consonants there was literally only one combination left for the first two consonants possible sounds... and then after the vowel only really one ending set of consonants still left.

Never heard of Wordscapes previously, but after looking it up it surprises me Wordle isn't also to your tastes. Especially since the word on the 25th wasn't particularly tough.

Sportswriters being allowed to portray themselves as the moral compass for major league baseball rather than simple objective reporters is a huge part of the problem here. But that's another topic I guess....

Funny you should mention that, I just did that this morning, definitely a tough word. My second word saved me.

irate, soupy, milch, sissy

Archive #3 is also tough.

Hoppin John we're getting Hoppin Blue today, and before you ask, yes you can make that with potatoes! Highfive

Before I forget to ask, if anyone sees $10 or more off Dying Light 2 sale let me know.
I saw it during the Winter Holiday Sales somewhere (cough, cough) for $35, but I was still on the fence.
I do see it for $48 ish but still looking. Paperbag
