Counterpoint: Why is the Masters so important? Because Bobby Jones and his golfing buddies like it? Because it offers the most money? Because its membership is the most exclusive set of racist white men ever? The Masters is a tautology. Rich men play the game, watch it, and make it important.

But this tournament isn’t Read more

Yeah, as a Steelers fan I’m really excited for a week’s worth of stories about this loss, and how the Steelers have a chance to take the crown, and how maybe this is the *year*, man, this is *it* before Tom Brady rips the Steelers hearts out on national television to the tune of, oh, let’s say... 44-27 this time, with Read more

I picked him up off waivers early on. Which sounds good, until you see I’ve also held (at various times) John Brown, Rashad Higgins, Josh Doctson, Corey Coleman, Devante Booker and like OJ Howard before he inevitably goes catchless in the next game. Kamara has literally been my only hit and I suck

The Jags wrecked a bunch of survivor pools yesterday. Good on ’em.

Just remember, the average Patriots fan is always angry because he spends 25 hours a day stuck in traffic because the Massachusetts driving test consists of spelling your name 90% correct and not leaving a condensation circle from your Narragansett pounder on the form. Read more

Car Talk is a Boston institution. Listening to them now is like stepping back 15 years for me, though it may as well be 30, cause it doesn’t seem to change at all. An 89 Honda Civic that dies over bumps. A TR7 that overheats on hills. These kind of cars and quirks don’t really exist anymore.

it currently has a stock price of $380. For reference, Tesla made 84,000 cars in 2016; Ford sold 2 million cars in the U.S. in the same time span, and it’s only selling at $11. Read more

It’s almost like the writers here have absolutely no exposure to the real world.

Can we stop using the price of an individual share of a company’s stock as a reference for anything? It’s completely meaningless, and using it as a metric for comparison shows a tremendous amount of ignorance and makes any other point you try to establish extremely questionable.
