As a lit major in the 80s, I was forced to consume so many American male authors who A) didn’t speak to me, B) didn’t speak to the boys and men I knew, and C) were idolized by the male professors at my small liberal arts college. Hearing about his passing makes me pine for the great stories by women of his generation…
I’ve always liked your glasses.
Well how about a kind word? I love your stuff. I love this blog. I read it every day. It really does enrich my life. When I had young kids it helped me cling to sanity. It makes easing into Monday better.
I was born to a grammarian and she worked very hard to beat split infinitives out of me, though I slip up often.
I can only speak for me, a masochist. I do not know if anyone else reads the comments.
This is completely unfair and I still laughed
That’s a great point — the narrative right now is “LeBron & co are invincible — another Finals is guaranteed!” and just two weeks ago, they were absolutely on the ropes against Indiana. That series was a legit 7-gamer, with close games throughout.
The Raptors have no excuse for getting swept by the Cavs.
Again, I think…
Wow. The guy that went to 3 of the last 3 finals and won 2 of them is not a good coach?! The guy that revolutionized offense AND defense in the NBA is not a good coach? The guy whose system every other team is trying to implement? This is a BAD TAKE and now it’s time for you to go......
Is there some available coach out there who has a secret plan for making James less good at basketball?
Assorted remembrances from a Wilson alum:
You forgot, the center also can’t back down opponents in the post, and frequently hangs out beyond the 3-point line because he thinks it’s super-impressive in the year 2018 to have Michael Jordan’s FG% from beyond the arc.
Think about what you just said: It took half a decade of trash basketball for this team to get back to where it ALREADY WAS, and its fans are crowing like they just won the goddamn Finals.
I agree. This team is no different than the 2012 team that lost to the Celtics in the second round.
No, it’s not hard to tell.
I had to google this. I can’t believe this reference actually happened.
I think one of the definitions of good satire is some reader’s inability to identify it as satire. I think this is great satire.
Just you watch, they’ll draft another point guard because they do these things in 3s, like you’re supposed to.
I can’t figure out if this comment is some sort of meta-satire. Exaggerating actual points to the point of ridiculousness and humor while ostensibly being serious is so clearly the dictionary definition of satire that being unsure if it is satire has to be a joke at the expense of the sorts of people who thought Swift…
