I unironically love Giri’s writing, and I’m sure being a Clipper fan since the Olowokandi era and thus sympathizing with his Knicks feelings is a solid part of that.
Nothing against you, Dan, but can we please have 1000 words from Giri on whether the cat will be able to keep up with the secondary and tertiary contenders on the tour as the ravages of age and feline psychological issues (“I always want to get into the service box, there are four of them, though, and I can never…
Woah, a guy the Habs misused going on to success elsewhere? Never heard that before.
Ichiro was 35 for 117 with 3 HR and 10 RBI against Bartolo Colon
Keep ‘em coming, man. Loving it.
+1 visit to Canada later if they manage to, though.
This was cool. Thanks.
I started laughing in the second paragraph and still haven’t stopped. This was exactly what I needed today. Thank you.
Moroccans wear a wide variety of hats depending on the season and their region of the country. Some of them even wear fezes! Unsurprisingly, fezes are more popular in Fez and its rural environs, and with older people.
That would also give me naches.
Kol HaOlam Kulo as interpreted by Breslovers and danced by a mixed pair would be mindblowingly awesome.

Everyone on both these teams would probably be required by club officials to kneel for the Marcha Real and then stand and belt out Els Segadors (the anthem of Catalonia whose chorus basically just repeats instructions to give the Castilians a “good whack with your sickle”) if they even played any songs before the…

I promise to sit my from-off ass down through the whole thing here in Charleston for you, and follow that up with a rousing rendition of John Brown’s Body.
That’s a good one! My favorite to use back when I lived in Detroit was that Michigan was so excited about beating us one time, they wrote their whole fight song about it.
My favorite thing when I went in there to ref intramurals on fall Saturdays was seeing visiting D3 football players realizing that it was real, and then pointing out the mark on it from where Berwanger had used it as a doorstop in his dental office.
I would argue that the family connections in wrestling are something fans are much more aware of up front, and (with the hilarious exception of Roman Reigns) much more ok with than people who’re consuming other cultural products. Wrestling literally advertises family ties, in a way that these other industries either…
In fairness to Rocky Johnson’s son, the tradition of nepotism in his original line of work is much more generally-accepted and much less outwardly frowned-upon than in the other lines of work you accurately covered.
No Mental Reservation about starring this.
