Ben Lindbergh did a great piece on it over on The Ringer. (The gist of it being that Joseph has been bad in general, but he’s also had significantly worse + fewer opportunities than the average player.)
Thank you *so* much for disregarding my inability to mention that the dunk accounted for a third of Turner’s points, as this post went up midway through the second quarter and I freely acknowledge that I cannot psychically ordain a guy’s scoring total before halftime.
Correct, updated to make that clear. Thanks!
thank you; it originally was just the last three things tagged “march madness” and then I decided this would be much more relevant + important for readers to remember.
A race organizer told local media that winds on at least one part of the course were measured at 100 km/hr (60+ mph), but I haven’t seen anything official or any other reports confirming that.
...yeah, I have nothing on that. All I can say is that it was after 1 a.m. and I’m sorry. (+ thanks for pointing it out, it’s been fixed!)
(If anyone here can handle Russian more adeptly than Google Translate, I’d love to get some more specifics from the linked page on the party site. The line about atomic bears drinking vodka from a samovar seemed especially interesting.)
Per my understanding of Shelburne’s reporting, at least, that’s not true. Her spot isn’t automatic. With the current structure, three Buss family spots are automatic—and the brothers submitted four names for those three spots, none of which were Jeanie. (See second and third paragraphs here.)
Thank you for pointing this out! It’s been changed.
Not pedantic! Clarified the wording to make it clear that I meant the All-Star game itself, thanks.
Your fault for misremembering what month José Fernández died, but not your fault for calling me a “vapid cunt” because you thought I’d misremembered and hadn’t checked your facts? Just checking—I wouldn’t want to misremember, since you deleted your original comment!
It was September 25. Feel free to check me on that with any of the hyperlinks in the article, any of the fourteen other pieces we have published about Fernández since his death, or a very simple Google search. Thanks for playing.
Good point, and can let my parents know at Christmas dinner that they should be adjusting their expectations here.
“Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos” :)
His Japanese roster lists him as Otani and MLB uses Otani, though he’s worn jerseys with both “Otani” and “Ohtani.” Baseball-Reference uses Otani, and so does every media outlet I’ve seen. If you can find a recent team or media example of Ohtani, would love to see it. (Sincerely! I saw people refer to him as Ohtani…
Yes, it’s been updated! Thanks
Two weeks ago, there were reports that investigation is still ongoing but police are having difficulty contacting the woman: http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/pirates/2016/09/13/Chicago-police-struggling-to-reach-Pirates-Jung-Ho-Kang-alleged-assault-victim/stories/201609130220
A brief technical error (see: me clicking the wrong button) that has since been fixed! Thanks, sorry.
...I did not know this. But I put it in Google Translate, and, wow, yeah. Thank you! I don’t know if this makes my name better or significantly worse. A lot to think about now. Namely how I got this far in life without learning what my name means.
