Yoga on the deck

A glorious day, at sea, unfortunately – would rather have it when we have excursion …

I ended up led a short yoga session – ya, me leading, can’t imagine but I did. I think everyone is trying to do something.

All the photos are taken by ship’s photographer, thank you!

Yoga in Canada

Did a few poses at Akpatok Island, Canada, with mud boots, life vest and the parka. It’s polar bears territory, so our armed guards ask us to have the life vest while on the beach – so we can run or evacuate immediately should a bear appear.

Goalie Lundqvist

Rangers’ goaltender Henrik Lundqvist (1982-) had retired and his number 30 is officially retired on January 28, 2022. He was drafted by Rangers in 2000 205th overall and player for the team from 2001-2020. The first overall pick in 2000 was also a goalie by Islanders, Rick DiPietro – same position with two different career outcomes.

The goal keep cut a dashing figure in New York, always dressed to the nine. He jams with John McEnroe who presented him a guitar at MSG.

The end of a very controversial game

Beijing winter Olympic is over, China collected her most gold in a winter game: 9, ranking 3rd, one spot ahead of USA. NYT terms it the joyless spectacle (2022.2.20). WSJ “highlight its divisions” and “never do it again.”

Sui Wenjing and Han Cong’s performance, reportedly, was excellent. 👍 I just watched Anna Shcherbakova who won the gold on Youtube: she’s so beautiful, and couldn’t believe my eyes that not a single teammate congratulated her and everyone was consulting the little drug user: Anna’s Russian, isn’t she, for Pete’s sake?

 

Photoshopped? I don’t think she would do it.

A sex scandal: Peng Shuai and Zhang Gaoli

Reuters reports “BEIJING, Nov 3 (Reuters) – Former world No.1 tennis doubles player Peng Shuai, one of China’s biggest sporting stars, has publicly accused a former Chinese vice premier of forcing her into sex several years ago in a social media post that was later deleted.”  Chinese tennis star accuses former vice-premier of #MeToo abuse, headlined the Guardian.

The VP in question is Zhang Gaoli (张高丽 1946– ). Peng (彭帅 1986-) had achieved doubles ranking #1 in 2014. She never won a grand slam in singles. I remembered her the best was her semi final at US Open, against Caroline Wozniacki, refusing to retire. I thought it wasn’t fair and sportsmanlike. And, it was totally not cool. … SO, USTA was willing to bend the rule for her in 2014 but now, merely seven years later, in 2021, is willing to pull out of China?

2021

… and yes, WTA pulled out of China in 2022, may return in 2023, per CEO Steve Simon.

~ Time: His Fight for a Chinese Star
~ cnn: IOC’s call with Peng Shuai ‘very much orchestrated’

Mary Carillo objects

This HBO Sports humorous short film is really funny: Got No Game with Paul Mecurio (1960?-), the lawyer turned comedian: Race in Sports.

A group of men are dividing up the sports by race, then came in Mary Carillo, to serve coffee and rejecting the notion that women can play sport, such as tennis that their breasts get in the way of backhand and pregnant 9 months out of a year …
