Perhaps I need to stay even further away.

Yes. They are in the East, with little hope of advancing past the Cavs and no hope of beating the few teams that could make it out of the west. Basketball unlike most other sports is very cut and dry when it comes to who wins. There are few upsets against the best teams and the team with the best player usually wins. Good regular season teams like the Hawks of the past decade flounder in the playoffs when they are suddenly found to be lacking a top 10 / 15 player.

They are just like any other team in the East below Cleveland, they could lose to pretty much any of the other East playoff teams since they're all so close. Raps might very well "pose the biggest threat to the Cavs", but it doesn't mean much.

Nothing good has ever come from the Raptors name. Dismantle the team and franchise and re brand as the Huskies.

Dismantle them and have them become a baseball team. Call them the Blue Jays.

I mean you say that, but the Raptors have yet to lose a game as the Huskies for whatever reason. Channeling that past, untainted energy.

I forgot to post "beer notes" from the meetup discussions, so quickly now:

For Quadratic, the beer I was recommending is La Saison du Tracteur from Le Trou du Diable:


That is THE beer to get right now at the LCBO.

Also, the beer I was trying to order but they were out of was Prophets & Nomads from Collective Arts:


It's a gose brewed with pink Himalayan salt. It's pretty wild. The LCBO has it in cans.

And for Renewed, the Belgian beers I was recommending are from the Rochefort brewery:


The LCBO only carries the 8 and the 10. The 8 is what I specifically recommended, but if you're in a "go big or go home" mood (11.3% ABV!) then by all means hit up the 10. It's pretty great.

Looks like they have a location near Bloor/Bathurst. Not too far from our usual meetup spot.

I just had a good ol' Granville Island English Bay Pale Ale yesterday.
I really like their Lions Winter Ale that has this chocolate/vanilla/caramel flavour to it. I still saw some cans of it in LCBO yesterday.

Mine (25th) is close to EM's (today). Kave came into existence after a bunch of hair rolled down a hill, got big enough, and got sentient around this time too.

The prophets and nomads was a huge disappointment. The kettle sour finish totally destroys it.

However IPA no 2 they released a week earlier is a very good take on the NE hazy IPA. Highly recommended

We just got the Lions Summer Ale this week. I can't remember if we've had this before. Haven't tried it yet.

Well, if/when you see an application from someone with a PhD in a completely unrelated field, that'll probably be me.

Did it years ago when I was 18. I sat in a giant room doing nothing but reading, listening to music, and watching Mr Bean episodes on the TVs they rolled out. On the fourth day they had us go into a courtroom but they filled the jury before they even got close to asking me any questions and then told the rest of us we didn't have to come in for the last day. The only good thing was my summer job paid me for those days even though they didn't have to.

Doing some Googling, it looks like if you're called in on a Wednesday you are "overflow" and typically get dismissed. It'd be somewhat interesting to be part of a major case, but I guess I'd be happy to just go in and out as well.

You can PM me for details, but it's non-Senior QA position in mobile gaming, so you can probably ball park it yourself. Benefits at the company are great.
