All you wankers who don't like sports better vote this topic through, otherwise there will be a sportspocalypse in every other thread on the front page.  Also, I will be voting no.

It's the new owner being cheap. That's why D'Antoni might return- he won't want to pay the rest of the salary.

An actual good sports story.

Holtman and shortstop Liz Wallace lifted Tucholsky off the ground and supported her weight between them as they began a slow trip around the bases, stopping at each one so Tucholsky's left foot could secure her passage onward. Even with Tucholsky feeling the pain of what trainers subsequently came to believe was a torn ACL (she was scheduled for tests to confirm the injury on Monday), the surreal quality of perhaps the longest and most crowded home run trot in the game's history hit all three players.


Leave it up to girls to play the right way.

For you San Francisco area people (or I guess Pixar fans), this is the latest thing I just did at work.


You post this in the sports thread? Really?

Cool though, it's a neat idea :)

It's OK for Jeremy to post non-sports stuff in this thread because we know he's not trying to derail it.

From the GTA4 and GTA4 only thread:
One of the Fire Joe Morgan guys is a writer for The Office, and my suspicions that all the writers are Harvard buddies was confirmed by Bob Costas on HBO tonight.

Yeah, they "came out" a while back. Important point, it's not just "a writer from The Office", it's the guy who plays Moss Schrute on The Office. That simply takes the bizarre to another level.

The video evidence. It's sad, because while he may be a "bullshit sports writer" (though I don't ever remember FJM ever going after novelists), he was a good one. You can tell he's had that brewing forever, and him and Costas were well prepared for that ambushing.

Derailing a thread with a picture with a train on rails in it is smart!

Here he is. Doesn't have it. If it was some disguise in a scene of the movie, sorry, I've forgotten about it. It has been about 500 years sice I last saw it!

FJM has used this occasion to point out problems with Bissinger's writing.

I read his book "3 Nights in August" and its pretty hefty with garbage to make a Moneyballer turn over in their grave.

So, the money would propogate the innocence of 60 year-olds fucking 13 year olds in the name of religious conviction. Sheesh...even criminals and Satanists admit such a thing is wrong, but they did it anyway. How far gone are you when you commit child rape and say "God loves it?"

If you want to point fingers because of the Shaq trade, aim those digits towards Mike D'Antoni, homeboy. HE wanted Shaq.

Shaw was OK. But Steve Nash played like a Canadian. Too many turn overs in the 4th quarter.

It doesn't matter what he wanted.  He wasn't the general manager.  They call these things hierarchies for a reason.

#74 by yotsuya
2008-05-01 08:25:27
They call these things hierarchies for a reason.

Yeah, but that's not how they've been set up. Remember, D'Antoni was coach/GM before they brought in Kerr, and it's been more of a committee-type setup. If/when D'Antoni gets fired/leaves, Kerr will wield much more power. It's really a front office in transition from Jerry and Brian Colangelo's guys over to Sarver's guys.

Isn't he already gone?

#76 by McBain
2008-05-01 08:45:00
At any rate, the Shaq trade follows the Ace Rothstein rule:  either he was in on it or he was too stupid to prevent it.  Either way, epic fail.

#77 by yotsuya
2008-05-01 08:59:41
No, he hasn't been fired. And he probably won't be, but he might leave on his own accord.

And points for the Ace rule. I have no love for Kerr, but I wouldn't solely blame him, either. I still don't fault him for rolling the dice, however. I have more of an issue with D'Antoni not developing a bench.

Huh, it never even occurred to me to bring it up here. I forgot we can be relevant. Actually I haven't discussed it with anyone, 'cuz… is there much to discuss? It's a story of how disgustingly cruel and inhuman humans can be, and bringing it up seems like an invitation for everyone to sort of nod and agree with that before we'd move on to another topic.
