Monday Night Open Thread: Mahomes Is Doing Better Than Expected

 287 replies

Welcome to AG’s nightly Open Thread, drop in and join a conversation, or start one yourself.

During the divisional round game against the Jaguars Mahomes suffered a leg injury that looked bad, and indeed during the game he was clearly effected.

But since the game ended it’s been good news. First it was reported that Mahomes was walking around normally in the post-game locker room.

Then the next day we got a couple of more pieces of good news. Not only was Mahomes feeling good, but his MRI came back negative for anything more than a sprain.

And now today Reid said that the injury wasn’t as bad as they initially thought. In fact, it wasn’t as bad as a previous ankle sprain that he played through in 2019.

I’m guessing Clark will beat the drum again. Wish he’d pass it on to a non-Hunt person.

I’m glad to read the notes above that Mahomes’ ankle isn’t as bad as might have been. As for my long comment earlier I simply felt it needed to be said and I appreciate the responses. Mahomes is special, the Chiefs are awesome and Arrowhead will be rocking on Sunday.

While this is a pair of Germans talking German politic, it’s very much in the context of Ukraine vs Russia. Interestingly, their talk reveals a ton of stuff about the situation, but wasn’t the important point, quite. 27+ minutes, highly recommend the whole thing. Very information-dense without getting technical, all in English.

Not soon, leadership’s too indecisive. It’s a pity politicians take their cues from public opinion for PR reasons, but taking the wrong stand’s now a career death sentence. To paraphrase an old saying, success has a thousand fathers, failure is an orphan.

Credit to Zelensky, on that point. His political career means less than his nation’s future. Moral courage is hard to come by, especially at that level.

They will soon get a TON of other hardware from various nations, so that will give them a nice boost going into spring/summer. I expect a massive Ukrainian offensive in spring or summer, aimed at cutting the Donbas in half, thereby cutting off the RF in the south and in Crimea. I’ve seen that there may be 100-200 T-72’s on their way soon, so another 100 Leopards would definitely be welcome. Hopefully it happens sooner rather than later.

Oh, and one thing said near the end rings true to me, that Russia has firmly established in the minds of most of the world that the Ukraine is a separate nation, people and language. Putin likely didn’t expect that, when going in. What he expected was that they mainly identified as Russians, and wouldn’t bother themselves regarding a forced regime change. Oops.

It’s what I call the Dictator’s Dilemma; eventually they find themselves by schemers who’ll say whatever they think he wants to hear, being the opposition to what the dictator wants can easily prove lethal, even if the opposition was correct.

An additional thought: Putin has been fighting his war in a way that’s supposed to play well to television. Quick, decisive operation to install a puppet, then make headlines (even negative ones!) talking about his success? In a sense, that’s not a military operation at all, but a PR stunt.

I think that part of Putin’s intent was to increase the general fear of Russia, and that’s an abject failure, too.

Wounded by the enemy, I could not stand to leave the troops on the field of battle. Maj. Kelce and Lt.Col. Henne stepped up to rally the men and secure victory. We await our next orders and celebrate with double portions of fermented possum milk and squirrel jerky.

As I recall, all that you’re missing, presuming you nailed the fried rice list, are oyster sauce and traditional noodles. He also demonstrates at the end how ordinary spaghetti will work as a reasonable substitute for the noodles. Forgetting that both are noodles for the sake of distinction, of course.*

Editor humor, if you don’t get it, I can’t explain it. 😉
