The NBA Finals are about to come to an end within weeks of a presidential election and aside from Kobe’s ghost leading the Lakers to victory and Big Face Coffee fueling the Heat’s underdog run, the biggest story in the league is a decline in TV ratings. The NBA and its own self-destruction are the… Continue reading Only Losers Care About TV Ratings
Because his name begins with “Jok,” Serbian basketball superstar Nikola Jokic has been christened “The Joker” by American announcers. This nickname fucking sucks. “The Joker” is the main Batman villain (Batman is a man who dresses up like a bat to solve crime in many popular comic books), a clown man who thinks crime is… Continue reading JOKIC IS THE JOKER, JUST NOT THAT ONE
When I am writing a first draft and I am ambivalent about something, I almost always end up reaching for an adverb. “Mostly,” “about,” “or so,” “primarily,” “very,” “extraordinarily,” all those bad boys are just sitting there waiting for me to reach a point in a draft where I am making a point that even… Continue reading NASHTY DEALINGS

Hoops, though, I thought. This one’s gotta be about hoops. That is why I am now live-blogging “The Way Back,” starring… Continue reading THE WAY BACK, Baby. (Part I of II)
Mark Jones’s voice is peaked the fuck out, befitting the last few posessions of an extraordinarily tight Game Seven. “HOUSTON WITH THE BALL AND UNDER A MINUTE TO GO!” You’re juiced, he’s juiced, we’re all juiced.
