Trump literally checks off all of those sins. The irony.

Apparently in order to make America great again you have to sin a lot.

We didn't want to include a KJ picture for day 7?

Thought about it, but I have been trying to mostly use non-Suns images when I can find a good one for the given number, since this isn't strictly a Suns-related event. But I'll go back and add it to please all comers. :-)

Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

You also missed the opportunity for a Star Trek image. And a Prisoner image the next day.

I am NOT a number! I'm a free man!

That was such an awesome series. Star Trek wasn't too bad either. ;)

I never really liked Voyager. And I especially took issue with Seven of Nine, who I felt was put on the show simply because of her body. It isn't like Star Trek to cast a character simply to be eye candy. But then they did it again with T'Pol on Enterprise. Oh well.

And now Tilly on Discovery. ;) She’s got a great personality though. :)

Why do you think they cast people like Yeoman Rand (and had Kirk talk about how he wanted her), Troi (and dressed her the way they did), and Kira?

Don’t forget Moogie. She was hot. And such a shameless exhibitionist, going around wearing clothes all the time. I couldn’t believe they put it on TV.

I didn't watch much of old classic Trek, so I can't say much about Rand. I know that show suffered from occasional "Kirk gets the green-skinned babes" -itis. I chalked some of it up to the time it aired in, the late '60s.

I thought Next Gen was extremely well behaved in this regard; the show was almost completely chaste and classy other than a few silly episodes like Season 1's "The Naked Now," which was a preposterous romp of debauchery. I don't think Troi was as bad as those others like Seven of Nine and T'Pol. She was an attractive woman, and they let her wear some uniforms that showed off her physique, but she always behaved professionally and wasn't generally treated like a sex object. There was one episode where she and Crusher were doing yoga stretches that was pretty gratuitous, but that's about it.

Image

Major Kira? She's a pretty lady, but she's treated completely seriously and not at all an object. She acts like a smart and tough-as-nails commander, and she wears professional clothing, and she's treated with respect. I don't think her character can be questioned at all.

But Seven of Nine, come on. She's there because she's a blonde with huge boobs. That's the start and end of it. I don't think Troi compares at all.

I actually think the actress, Jeri Ryan, acquits herself pretty well in the Picard series as a slightly older Seven. But that doesn't erase her original stint on Voyager.

She just made her first appearance for me last night on Picard. I think you're prejudices are pretty obvious about big boobed blondes. I have no such prejudices!
