That is, until he played a game against the Astros at Minute Maid park in Game 5 of the World Series. Kershaw gave up two leads and the Dodgers lost the game and eventually the Series. The recent news that the Astros cheated in 2017 puts all of this in a new and very ugly light. To his credit, Kershow is doing his part to move past it.

You can run multiple Linux distros side by side and even migrate Linux installations between Windows systems with just a few Powershell commands. He mentions Windows Terminal and I'd also recommend checking it out. You can tell Scott gets a kick out of this stuff. He seems to have fun with it.
