Can you make brisket in an instant pot? Yes. Does it feel like you’re breaking all sorts of rules and traditions? Also yes. Is it easy and equally delicious? A thousand times yes.

What if @TheJudge44 hits #61 and the game gets called by rain before it’s official??? (This is admittedly very unlikely/possible) #RepBX

Hah yup. Holds it too long and then …. Fumbles it away
Injuries on interior are bad, the "veteran" guards might just be old, AND Carson holds the ball too long and isnt great at committing to his footwork. Bad recipe, like inflation and low unemployment?

Is the @Commanders O-line really this bad @JPFinlayNBCS? I mean I know eagles have Cox, Graham et al and are very good but this is horrendous. Two weeks in a row.

While @TheJudge44’s chase for 62 homers and the AL/Yankee record is understandably the focus he’s also super close to being first triple crown winner since Miggy in 2012 and only the second since 1967. So all those non-homer hits are key as well. #RepBX 👑

I’m in the weird position of wanting the #Yankees to win but would not be upset if the Red Sox tie it and get another @TheJudge44 at bat #RepBx

Yes! Genius. This way @morningmoneyben wouldn’t have to narrate everything that’s happening while I “watch” under a pillow.
Someone should make a site that's just well-written, thorough, meticulousy spoilery descriptions of the plots of horror movies and novels for those of us who want to know what everyone's so excited about but don't like to be scared

Pro tip: Don't put sugar/water on the stove to make simple syrup and then forget it and do a zoom meeting for an hour. Unless of course you like wrecked pans, smoke and an overwhelming smell of burnt marshmallows (which I guess is not the worst smell you can have in a house).

Got excited when I saw #Phish trending only to learn it's due to @Harry_Styles announcing a long MSG run. Nothing at all against Mr. Styles. I like Watermelon Sugar as much as the next guy. But not quite as much as @treyanastasio et al shredding for our delight.

"But even a deflated-seeming Powell this week acknowledged that core inflation has not really dropped at all, despite all the rate hikes so far. Gas prices dropped from highs hit after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but that’s about it." - @morningmoneyben @playbookdc
