Haven't seen Jack Reacher but I agree. Where Cruise is a smug asshole in an action movie is the perfect role for him. I liked him in "Edge of Tomorrow", "Oblivion", and "Mission Impossible:Rogue Nation". Although maybe I liked the last one because of Rebecca Ferguson.

$60 for 30 games? That's hours of fun. You'd spend more per minute on hookers and blow and it wouldn't last as long.

Went white water rafting in the Green River in BC late fall/early summer. I guess the river still was being fed by a lot of snow run-off so we had to put on these full thickness wet suits. The water was really cold and was literally green from all the glacial sediment. The trip was going well and then we hit this calm section of the river. The guide said, "hey you guys want to go for a little float?" To me, I thought this was a bad idea but everyone else in the rafting group wanted to do it so I went along with it. It was OK, but a little cold. Finally the guide told us to get back into the raft. Being the gentleman that I am and wanting to impress the now MgoWife with my gallantry, I let everyone else climb back into the raft before me.
By the time the last person before me got in, the guide was frantically gesturing for me get back into the raft. I looked around and saw some whitewater that was downriver from me that was coming up really fast. Unfortunately I had drifted downstream faster than the raft and the other people and I started to literally swim as fast as I could.. upstream towards the raft. At that time in my life, I was swimming a lot and considered myself a pretty strong swimmer but no matter what I did, I kept drifting closer and closer to the rapids and I was getting really tired. The combination of swimming that hard and the cold water was just sucking the energy from me.
Finally, the raft got close enough to me. The guide and I locked our gazes for a second but it seemed forever. I must have been terrified. He throws a rope, I grab it and he starts to reel me in. The rapids are getting really close but I'm just so tired that I cannot pull myself into the raft. Finally, he and my MgoWife and the other people in the raft are able to pull my exhausted probably hypothermic self into the raft and we hit the rapids.
Later, at the take-out site I'm still pretty tired while everyone else is enjoying lunch. The guide comes up to me and asks if I'm OK. I say "yeah" and he replies that maybe that it wasn't such a good idea for everyone to a little float down the river.

Preach! These elite players, they have ambition. Otherwise they wouldn't have the drive to get where they are. Even though I'm not a fan of Lebron and didn't like "The Decision" one bit, I could understand the drive to win a championship that underlie his decision.

If you wanted to win, you wouldn't go back and try to relive all the "what if" scenarios that you listed unless you had some way to time travel or jump to alternate universes. Those games and seasons are done. They are in the record books. I was out there in the streets of Ann Arbor after Michigan won the National Championship in 1989, high-fiving every stranger I could on the way to Central Campus. I was there when Ann Arbor's finest tear gassed the crowds during the Fab Five's championship games. Great memories.
But they're just memories now and I want the basketball team to win, at an elite level. In the present.

My take on this is that a lot of this is a bunch of panicky handwringing from the media and the 24 hour news cycle.
The UK may be smaller but I don't think it's going to be the huge sky is falling catastrophe that a lot of pundits are saying its going to be. Where else are the Russian oligarchs and the rich Middle Eastern oil sheikhs and the Chinese Communist Party members going to park their money? In France? Italy?
