Trubisky probably would have been better off if he’d thrown like six interceptions. Then, it’s such a cartoonishly bad game that you can’t really take it seriously. But to be that mediocre and uninspiring for 60 solid minutes is just brutal, especially when it completely supports the already existing narrative about Read more

“Peacocking” is a huge PUA thing. Basically, the idea is you wear bright-colored clothing to draw attention to yourself, and girls will want to talk to you. Family Guy did a terrible episode that mentioned it, and American Dad did a very good episode that mentioned it.

No worries, and thanks! I’m actually petty proud of that Critic piece. And Maurice LaMarche RT’d it! I will brag about that until I die.

What happened was, I screwed up and posted it to my personal Kinja instead of The AV Club. All fixed!

Regarding the general decency of Drew Brees, it’s worth noting that a lot of your all-time great QBs are scumbags. Read more

I’m a Grizzlies fan, and I’m pretty damn in on the tank, to the point where I’ve come home from work, looked at the scores and openly said “fuck yeah, the Grizz lost again!” I mean, the draft is just too good to not be excited about a high pick, especially considering the possibility of plugging said pick in with Read more

The problem with the Browns is that they’re the Browns. Anything they do is going to seem like it’ll blow up in their faces, because that’s pretty much what always happens. Tyrod is pretty solid QB, and definitely good as a bridge guy, and Landry is a quality No. 1 receiver, and pairing him with Josh Gordon sounds Read more

“It wasn’t my fault, it was the Percodan. If you ask me, that stuff rots your brain. And now, a word from our sponsor...PERCODAN?! Aww....”

It amazes me to no end that a player with Jokic’s skill set went in the second round. Like...you aren’t supposed to be able to get unicorns outside of the lottery. Even Giannis went 15th (I think), and he was considered a super-raw prospect. I mean, most second round/undrafted guys who become good pros do so because Read more

I am *still* so fucking mad at Chris Wallace for not trading Tyreke Evans.

Not on a week-by-week basis, but I will be covering the series finale.

This episode had a lot of good stuff (and LaMarche’s Orson Welles impression was amazing as always), but the lack of payoff killed it for me. Like, the explanation of Ralph scoring higher than Frink is just that he screwed up? You could think of any number of legitimate reasons for why that would happen (hes generally Read more

I want a Pats-Vikings Super Bowl so bad. Everything Magary writes before and after (no matter who wins) will be top-quality rants.

His season is fun as hell. I’m curious how far the “Lou should be an All-Star” thing actually goes. Like, he’s done so much for them, but at the same time, there’s only so much space. Like, in the West, you’ve got: Read more

Yeah, it’s kinda weird to see Deadspin writing a “just let people enjoy football” piece when making people feel bad for watching football is kinda their bread and butter. I mean, just yesterday, another writer admonished men who still watch football as being just as bad as those who still support Woody Allen. And the Read more

This was the quintessential “we’re all going to burn in hell for liking football” game.
