This was an entertaining, but depressing, read. Hard for me to remember a player that they’ve done a good job of developing, a player who they got to even play slightly above expectations.

This is one of the deeply weirdest things I have ever read, and I spend a lot of time on the internet. Bravo.

There’s the agony of defeat. Then there’s the agony of defeat of losing to Fognini. And then yet there’s a greater agony of defeat of losing to Fognini after he pulls his BS and you’re unable to serve it out twice in the third set.

In my next life, I would like to come back as Joel Embiid. Except for the all of the joint issues. And without the diarrhea episodes. And probably having to constantly deal with racist philly fans. You know what? Nevermind. I’d rather be Cody Bellinger. Or any generic white guy named Cody. Or Chad. Or Logan.

I have actually played basketball with Andrew Yang. Prior to his run he served as head of the fellowship he founded, my class was his last as an active participant, and during our summer training camp we coaxed him out onto the court (with significantly more reluctance than we are seeing now that he can score literal Read more

I think one of my favorite parts about Federer’s matches are the ridiculous shots and spins he does to get balls directly to ball boys and girls.

A pusher with good aim who can hit the ball really goddamn hard when he has too and can also hit every damn shot in the book really well despite looking weird as hell doing it. He’s this horrifying swiss army knife monster who drains all your energy with perfectly placed no-pace balls that are a nightmare to attack Read more

This is gonna sound name-dropping insidery but beating the Hawk-Eye is a very real thing for the lines crew. You get up for it. You get your call challenged, it goes to the Hawk-Eye, everybody starts clapping, it says yep you got it right, that’s fun.

Listen, fun is fun, but if you’re going to interrupt your kid’s summer league game do it in the time honored and respectable fashion...get into a drunken argument with the official, before taking a few swings at random parents trying to separate the two of you, then storm off to your car screaming, “I’m sorry, I Read more
