We haven’t lost two games in a row in nearly 60 days. Let’s keep that streak alive!

Why is the belly button large enough to hold a ping pong ball?

I have a bad feeling about this game. The Raptors were kind of sandbagging it before the deadline and really put it on Denver when it seemed likely to be Lowry's last game.

Now all the uncertainty has passed, so I think they'll be ready for the playoff push with a more focused effort.

I think they're in a very beatable state. They just traded a key player in Powell. They have an emotional comedown from not trading Lowry. And their other star, Siakam, is feuding with the coach. They're a mess. We can take these guys.

We can absolutely win and are the betting favorite. Their main guys still scare me because I know they can beat anyone at anytime and the Suns are a target now.

It'll take an effort like the one they put out in Miami to surely beat the Raptors.

Raps are kind of in disarray but may pull together now that the deadline has passed and Lowry is still there. Tough to say tho as they may just want to get thru the rest of the season since it's been such a rough one for them. Nurse and Siakam got into it the other night apparently, they traded Powell and won't have Trent Jr yet IINM.

It’s like an extra pocket, he keeps all sorts of stuff in there. Marbles, nickels, your choice of salsa.

coins and marbles I totally get. But if I am eating salsa, it is usually a quart at a time. So I don't think this is practical.


(BTW, I could probably live on good salsa. I probably go through half a gallon a week.)

This actually seems to be accurate which is surprising
Didn't expect players moved at the deadline to be available already. Wonder if that is the case for some of the bigger trades Bulls, Nuggets and so on but either way

Portland was in Miami, Toronto playing in Tampa, so a pretty quick trip to get to Tampa and get ready for the game.
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Would be perfect for those little salsa containers they give you at Mexican restaurants. He could put one in his belly button and pretend like he's Iron Man.

First kimchi, now salsa. I think you live inside my stomach. Maybe that would explain the noises (and gas).

What are your feelings on curries? A place near me has a really good red curry and an amazing green one. I could literally drink it straight... well, I have. So maybe I should remove the "could" from the sentence.
