Great job by Eaton, he's just going to get better.
What Beach did is the classiest thing I think I've ever seen in any sport. He's going to great, too, but he can always remember and be proud of what he did.


Agreed. An amazingly classy moment. It cuts against pretty much every vector of American popular culture.

He acted altruistically. He did a generous thing and didn't--I hope!--immediately Twitter it in hopes of securing a "reality" TV show.

Reality TV--actual in-the-moment, unscripted reality--is thrilling.

Eaton's last 400 was one of those remember-where-you-were moments. I think I pushed the TV volume up to 40 on the remote as I shouted "world record! world record!"

Thrilling.
