Celtics, Heat kneel for anthem, release statement prior to game originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
"Then you watch him shoot 3s and I'm like, 'Jeez, he kind of looks like Mark Price.' So I've now compared him to two MVPs and a multi-time All-Star.' And then we watch him a little bit more and he's done three or four times now where he's done the Statue of Liberty thing with the left hand, and big guys don't touch him. It's like he's invisible. There's a little Kyrie [Irving], there's a little Isaiah Thomas. So clearly I've lost my mind with all of the people I've said. He's not any of those guys, but just the fact that you can be reminded of those guys." Sacramento Kings
The major storyline from Monday night’s win, however, remains Immanuel Quickley. The Kentucky product has shown flashes, but nothing like his all-around entertainment in the ATL. Detroit Pistons
Is there anything on this planet LeBron James can’t do? Arguably the best player in NBA history, James is in his age-36 season, but hasn’t been slowed down whatsoever to start things off for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020-21. Indiana Pacers
Orlando Magic: Markelle Fultz's season-ending ACL injury on Wednesday night is a rough development for the former No. 1 overall pick, who had already overcome early struggles in the league and started to round into form since joining the Magic last season. With Fultz now out, the door opens up for rookie Cole Anthony to play a more prominent role. Anthony, the former North Carolina star and son of longtime NBA point guard Greg Anthony, played 32 minutes in Wednesday's win over Cleveland and might be a decent source of rebounds and assists as he adjusts to the NBA. His poor shooting in the early going (29.7 FG%) and minimal impact in steals and 3s limits his fantasy upside, however.

One league health source who is close to the matter added, "What scares me -- and I know it's happening -- is that their normal job of doing health care on players [is impaired]. I've had some trainers tell me, 'I haven't touched a player in two weeks because I've been so busy doing all this logistics and testing and all that.' That's concerning. That's definitely what I don't want to happen."
As the Rams prepare for their third playoff appearance in four seasons, Goff is continuing to recover from surgery on his throwing-hand thumb that he underwent a day after a Week 16 loss to the division-champion Seahawks at Lumen Field.
No. 25 Florida State's visit to Pittsburgh scheduled for Saturday has been postponed due to following COVID-19 testing issues within the Seminoles program. Atlanta Falcons
After four seasons with the 49ers, Katie Sowers and the club have decided to go their separate ways.
Philadelphia got the ball rolling Monday. Malik Jackson and Jeffery agreed to reworked contracts, sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, to free up some cap space in the short term. Their departures still appear likely.
The Colts have wide receivers T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal both headed to free agency, so a reshaped depth chart may be coming. Even if both are brought back, there should be room for a notable outside addition. Spotrac tabs Godwin’s market value at $17.2 million per year, on a projected four-year, $68.8 million deal. That would be no trouble for Indianapolis, it’s just a matter of how they allocate their resources. Cleveland Browns

The Bills have been difficult to contain in a season Allen topped 300 yards a team-record eight times and threw a team-record 37 touchdowns versus just 10 interceptions.
Thank you so much for posting I am terribly sorry for taking so much time to respond. I finally had the money to do some server upgrades.
I had the old LiveWire BBS I will search for the files you want.
So, back when rocks were still soft and the internet was young, Scarecrow (aka Lorax, aka Gordon Cooper, current Grand Archdruid of the AODA) wrote an essay that was published in Converging Paths, 1987 Fall Equinox issue, called "SHAMANISM: Agony Before the Ecstasy". As rocks have cooled, dinosaurs been killed off and such, bodies have moved and the like, he no longer has a complete copy of it, and I have a need of it.
I've been scouring the dark alleys of Google seeking it, as it had been posted to the old PODSNet file system, as well as having been posted to Usenet in a few places. I've tracked down as many of those as I can, and in every instance, text is missing, or garbled. In fact, there are two versions at the Skeptic Tank, both of which have different errors and gaps, as well as two instances in soc.religion.shamanism which at first look seems to be a duplicate of the one in alt.pagan, except they have different garbles as well ...
In short, we have all of these, none of them are complete:
By any chance, do any of Ye Old Timers have in their mildewing files in the box in the crawlspace or basement, copies of this particular issue of Converging Paths, and if so, could you be enticed to scan the pages of this article and email them to me, so that I can clean up the scans and get them to Gordon? Sadly, my own copies of that belated magazine were eaten by vermin about 25 years back and seven moves ago.
For any assistance, many thanks, feel free to contact me at Moondancer @ NemedCuculatii (dot) org with "SHAMANISM: Agony Before the Ecstasy" as the subject if you can assist!
PS - Permission to share this in appropriate Craft/Metaphysical Groups is granted, lease just let me know where it's been shared, so that I can attempt to keep track.

Almost three years later, problems with mine as well -- but different (gave me a user name I'd rather change, or replace, and I find nowhere to do so.
