From the Saturday Tribune . . .

"The Thunder have lost consecutive games only three times this season, showing remarkable consistency. They are 17-4 in games after a defeat (they lost their regular-season finale)."

In other words, this year's Oklahoma City Thunder lost two games in a row only three times, despite their four losses after a defeat. (The explanation for this neat trick, if you accept it, is that the Thunder in February lost three games in a row, a streak the Tribune chooses to count once.)

"Boeing and suppliers spent 200,000 hours designing the battery fix and another 100,000 testing it, the company said."

Working around the clock for 34 years, Boeing finally solved the battery problem that grounded the 787 in January.
