    Well, the Chiefs are in the Superbowl. I'd like to see them play the 49ers, but wouldn't be surprised if the Packers got there.

    I really have no skin in the game, really. Both the Giants and the Jags are a long way off from Superbowl contention.
    I would've liked to have seen Tennessee get in solely for the chance to see Ryan Tannehill stick it to the Dolphins. Tom Brady in his prime would look like the 6th round draft pick he is if he had Miami's O-line. Go Niners then!

    Pat Mahomes is a beast and a half. If they stay healthy, I'm hopeful to see Lamar Jackson vs Pat Mahomes as a rivalry for the next few years.

    At least it ain't Belicheat again this year...

    Mr. Cue, my dad is a massive Dolphins and Miami Heats fan. He'll watch the Marlins, but we know right now only 10 people watch the Marlins right now (most are in that club in the stadium).

    I just don't get it with the Marlins. How is it that they need to have fire sales when they win the World Series as often as they have? Are their owners just the cheapest guys in the league?

    I'd love to see the Dolphins become good again. They were a powerhouse when I was a kid.

    How are the Heat doing this year? I haven't kept up with the NBA lately.

    I'll let Mr. Clue talk about how cheap the old Marlins owner was, who owned the Dolphins at the same time at one point.

    The Heats are one of the surprises of the NBA this year and appear playoff bound (#3-4 seed right now).

    Yikes! I didn't know the same guy owned both the Marlins and the Dolphins.

    That's great the Heat are having a successful year so far.

    H. Wayne Huizenga owned the Dolphins after original owner Joe Robbie passed and his horrible kids were fighting for control of the team. They sold around the same time the Marlins came into existence. Around this time Huizenga also owned the Florida Panthers hockey team. H. Wayne cheerfully held the first fire-sale after the '97 series and then sold the dumpster to current Red Sox owner John Henry. Naturally, after the '03 series we had fire-sale #2 since it worked so well the first time.

    Mercifully, that ******* has never had his grubby mitts on the Heat. They're one of the biggest surprises this year as MIA mentioned. That ********* also owned Blockbuster Video and Waste Management Company. So it's natural to think of Huizenga when you see a dumpster fire, he perfected them.

    Wow! That's worse than I thought. I hope he sells to someone who actually wants to win and spends the money to win.

    Not to speak ill of the dead but he's no longer with us. As I said, he sold the team to John Henry who then sold to Jeffrey Loria, aka Satan's twin brother. Loria sold to a group headed by Derek Jeter a couple of years ago. We simply have no luck with owners. The Dolphins were sold to Stephen Ross (another New York real estate mogul) about 5 years ago and he's not f****d up the team too bad. Well, no worse than when Huizenga had it.

    I didn't know he died. Hopefully the current group will figure things out sooner rather than later.

    I also hope the Dolphins owner will figure out.

    I don't have much hope for the Clowns. I'd be surprised if their new coach lasts more than 1 season.

    The Indians owner is going cheap yet again too.

    Meanwhile, here in NYC:

    1) The Knicks are still the Knicks

    2) The Nets are the going along, with a shot at making the playoffs

    3) The Yankees should be in the mix again for post season play

    4) The Jets are still the Jets

    5) The Mets are still wildly inconsistent

    6) The Islanders are playing good hockey

    7) The Rangers are playing like the Nets - in the hunt but with lots of work to do if they want to get into the playoffs

    8) The Devils aren't worth talking about right now

    9) Very few people pay attention to NYCFC and the Red Bulls in MLS in comparison to the other teams on this list

    10) And the sleeper team in the region right now - Rutgers basketball. The women are doing well, but the men's team is the real surprise.

    Which device? Do you use NFC or Netflix? I IRC, neither works on rooted devices.

    A Xiaomi. If I do it's to put the Pixel experience on. I don't use NFC unless for pairing devices and I only watch Netflix on Android TV. I likely won't root it and use it as a work phone.

    I just remember how fun it was flashing ROMs and unbricking devices years gone by and wondered out a loud for a second if I wanted to do that again. Probably not.

    To clarify, NFC still works on rooted devices, but not Google Pay.

    I have my 2013 Nexus 7 tablet, which I may root if I'm bored and want to play around with it.

    Good luck if you do decide to root your Xiaomi.

    Having used the BlackBerry keyboard now it starting to make me pay more attention to what and how I type. I was never mindlessly firing away before, but it really makes me miss physical keys. I was a lot more accurate on those.

    Well the rental lease is signed.

    We have keys. We've ordered stuff. We're going to start moving stuff we're even getting our stuff from our container near Bordeaux.

    So overall, a good start to the week.

    Been busy as hell but it'll get better.

    Just sorting out other things now.

    It's always a long list when moving.

    Good luck with completing the move. I don't envy you at all. It does seem like the worst is over, now that the lease has been signed and you have keys.

    The HTC U12+ is the last phone they've released, and that was back in 2018. Do you think they're defunct, since they went over a year with nothing new?

    It'd be a shame if HTC is gone, since they had some really innovative devices over the years, just not lately.
    Didn’t they sell off most of everything to Google few years ago, essentially, leaving the mobile phone business except for whatever in the pipeline at time?
