The Infirmary- Week 2 Injury Report

The first week of the 2021 NFL season did not disappoint in many ways. From the opening game to the wild events of the Monday Nighter in Vegas, fans were treated to the usual week one madness and then some. Unfortunately, another aspect carried on like clockwork; injuries. The running back position continues to take hits and the beard is headed to IR. Yes, some things never change. Luckily, The Infirmary is here to keep fantasy managers up to speed. Week 2, bring it on.

Lost Judgment

The original Judgment had a huge impact on me. I had tried to get into the Yakuza series in the past but lost interest. When Judgment came out, offering an original cast and plot in that same world with a focus on detective work, I thought it was the perfect way for me to ease myself into the long-running franchise. I was right. I adored Judgment, and with that positive experience lifting me up, I dove back into the mainline series and chewed through several Yakuza games. I’m an enthusiastic fan of the series now, but Judgment and its core crew are special to me. So when Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio announced they were developing a sequel, titled Lost Judgment, I was about as close to being “over the moon” as a person can physically get without shooting themselves into space. But past the hype and excitement lies the real test for any sequel: does it match or surpass its predecessor?
Santafe New

First, a very big bravo to the resourceful leaders, resilient staff members, and generous donors of Santa Fe’s musical organizations. They’ve made it to this semi-optimistic moment in surprisingly good shape. Big questions remain regarding not just the trajectory and impact of coronavirus variant strains, but also around the effects of the shift to online programming. Will it become a necessary but supplemental activity, or will it significantly reduce in-person attendance in the future? This could become a very tricky balancing act, since producing virtual content adds a thick layer of cost, and the income from it is much less than the per-person revenue from live performance.

Laboring with One’s Hands

Over the last few months I’ve relished my labor. That statement might sound sort of strange, but doing work by the sweat of my brow and knowing it all directly benefits my family gives me a really good feeling. This past week The Deer Hunter had a few late nights...

Hard to see how Duncan can lose

When Trudeau the Younger (aka The Trust Fund Kid) fired the starter’s pistol to get the election race – the one nobody else wanted – under way, Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry incumbent Eric Duncan was off and running … by himself. For the next several days he was the only one in...

Country Music Influence on The Pressley Girls
