How to occupy the 3 hour lead up

I am nearly sick with anticipation. For those that care I see a barn burner of a dual between Ohio State and Michigan conveniently positioned a the lead up to our mega dual on BTN. They have as many matches that you might categorize as toss ups as us. It should prove entertaining and of high quality:

125: #10 Malik Heinselman (Sr.) or Andre Gonzales (r-Fr.) vs #20 Jack Medley (GR)
133: #9 Jesse Mendez (Fr.) vs #12 Dylan Ragusin (r-So.)
141: #18 Dylan D’Emilio (r-Jr.) vs #23 Cole Mattin (r-Jr.)
149: #3 Sammy Sasso (r-Sr.) vs #21 Chance Lamer (r-Fr.) or Fidel Mayora (r-So.)
157: #23 Paddy Gallagher (r-Fr.) vs #10 Will Lewan (r-Sr.)
165: #9 Carson Kharchla (r-Jr.) or Isaac Wilcox (Jr.) vs #6 Cameron Amine (r-Jr.)
174: #8 Ethan Smith (r-Sr.) vs Max Maylor (r-Sr.) or Joseph Walker (r-So.)
184: #5 Kaleb Romero (r-Sr.) vs #8 Matt Finesilver (GR)
197: #21 Gavin Hoffman (r-Sr.) vs Brendin Yatooma (r-So.)
285: #16 Tate Orndorff (r-Sr.) vs #1 Mason Parris (5th)

Viagra shown to dramatically reduce heart attacks and deaths from all causes

A study that looked at a fifteen year history of 23,000 men who took viagra compared to over 40,000 that didn’t take it showed a 39% drop in deaths from all causes. That’s a huge improvement. Heart attacks, strokes, other cardiovascular events. And it appears the men that took more had better results.

BUT this was an observational study looking at past histories, not a double blind controlled study so don’t start chugging them down. It wasn’t a controlled study on just how many pills they took, how regularly they took them, or other issues like smoking, diet and exercise. I would add that most men who this are older, probably 60 or more, so that puts them at higher risk than the general population.


Noteworthy Results & Goldfish Games: Week of 1/13- 1/15

No PSU this weekend.

2023 Review of the PSU - IOWA Dual Series

Starting in 2010, of course, when wrestling was invented . . . I thought it would be interesting to take a look back at some old names, circumstances, and outcomes in anticipation of the big match tomorrow night. These results (and associated rankings) are copied from the pertinent PSU post-match news release. I took the liberty of inserting some notes and highlighting "on-paper" upsets of ranked wrestlers.

USA COVID-19 Vaccination Updates

this thread is for daily updates on vaccinations given per day in the USA, and discussion about that.

I'm separating this out from the COVID-19 Testing & Treatment thread that's been on the board for most of the pandemic in the hope that thread can continue to focus on COVID-19 testing & treatment, and this thread can focus on COVID-19 vaccinations in the USA.

And while this seems to be a challenge for some of you when discussing this subject, please do not bring politics into this thread.
