LOL. I hear you. I might have taken out a lego x-wing from my son's room.

My HOA won't allow hoops out front, and my backyard doesn't have a good spot right now. I guess I should get one of the pool ones. Or I am thinking about ripping out my spa and putting a sport court in there.
I highly recommend the pool one. Nothing better than being in the pool in the summer shooting hoops. It’s actually good exercise, fun and gosh darn it, people like it.

That's an awesome idea Indy. Sounds like you've been working from home for a while huh...
Just every day for the last 51 weeks.

That's right, we're coming up on the anniversary. I think Monday, March 15th will be the beginning of year 2 for me of working from home.

We shut it down on a Wednesday, so March 11th will be my one-year anniversary. I had planned on traveling every single week in March, after traveling a couple weeks in February. It was going to be a brutal 6 week span and I was dreading it. When we shut it down I was thinking in 6 weeks or so I would be back to traveling.

I haven't been on a plane is over a year, and that is the only time in the last +20 years that I have gone more than a couple months without being on a plane. It is weird.

We are more or less back to normal here, but having less crowds during the holiday season and flights are much less expensive so those things are nice...

I just snagged a volunteer spot at the vaccination site. So if everything goes according to plan, I should have a vaccine in 10 days. At least my first dose. My wife gets hers in about 10 hours.

Plenty of people are lining up to get vaccinated here, though I don't have the opportunity to get one at the moment. But it really hasn't affected our lives that much tbh other than not being able to travel abroad so I'm not that bummed.

In Beijing... not quite the epicenter but certainly we dealt with the Covid crisis earlier than the US. I tried to post a bit about my experience here in the early days, then things got busy and I couldn't keep up with the covid related threads in the off-topic boards anymore.

The springs should make for a forgiving rim when your throwing up all those bricks.

You are correct. I am using a 3/4 size ball on a 1/2 size hoop. And they help with dunking!

Ha! I paid too much and cracked the corner when I over-tightened the mounting screw.

Long story, but I bought an over-the-door hoop ($25) with plans to just mount it on the wall. But it had such a crappy backboard and was only about 2mm thick. Certainly wouldn't hold up. So I mounted it on some plywood before hanging it. That was scrap I had so it didn't cost me anything. But I wanted the Suns background, so I had to remove all the paint from the stock one. I bought some fancy paint thinner ($13) that was supposed to be good for acrylic. But the backboard was not acrylic I guess, because the paint thinner just ate right through it. So it was completely ruined. I ended up buying a piece of acrylic close to the same size ($30). Fortunately AIG got those court images for me, and I had Costco print them out on large photo paper ($15). So my impulse purchase of $25 turned into $83 and a few hours of my time.
