Um of course he’s not gonna say anything bad about Stalin, the guy’s right there!
Another rule: all teams that play in the Badlands are called the Browns. Hockey, base ball, whatever. They are the Browns. Browns vs. Browns. Fans are forced to wear brown at the stadium.
I thought the most impressive series of “Well this is my game now” moments was when he just took Lance to the post like three straight possessions, then they switched a larger defender on him (Bogdanovic I think) and he hit a long two right in his face.
It would be lunacy not to assume he’s going to come back down to earth sooner rather than later, but holy shit this is unreal. As a child, there were three things I always dreamed of seeing before I died:
Oh no, now the Browns will be bad.
Let’s talk about the moment where we decided to stop watching.
Mine was jussst after the season 5 premiere premiere. I was two episodes in, fell behind and just didn’t care enough to catch up beyond reading blog posts about it. Yeah, I’m that guy.
Oh, it’s just Carl. Whew. That guy sucks. I thought for a second that Coral died because you posted a picture of him.
Alright so I can add something here. I don’t wanna sell it as the juiciest thing, but:
I went to college at USC and went to more Trojan baseball games than I care to admit (graduated in 1996). I used to do homework in the stands at Dedeaux Field and relax in the sun; it was my library and no one really cared much about the team even though we were good. I used to pore over stats when Randy Flores was…
I feel like you’re not quite getting it.
Yes. Yes he is.
Good investigative journalism. It might have been an attempt by Madison Bumgarner (pitcher) to zest up a story from “I knew a girl in high school with the same name!” to “I dated a girl in high school with the same name!” which actually arises to being an interesting anecdote. Now Madison Bumgarner (pitcher) is…
The PIE numbers are actually a bit aside from the point here — those are impressive and important to the team, but as you know, agnostic to having a positive or negative impact on the game. The way clutch numbers are useful for a given team in a given season is that they are the best way to account for score effects…
That is not what data nerds say about sustained crunch time stats in basketball.
Good to see the young fella get the thwack back. Serve it up, he’ll down it. Put the cards down, he’ll filet them. Hell, mop the floor and he could walk on it. I think you follow.
Ah shit here come a bunch of grammar nerds. ‘Could care less’ is perfectly fine.
The weird german shit thrown in. The buck with the cross between its antlers and the helmet that is very tuetonic knight in the Porsche.
There’s also the convenient fact that Chris didn’t have parents to come looking for him when he went missing. If you’re picking out people who are easy to abduct, not having any close family (to put pressure on the police and organize a search) would be an important qualifier.
One of the most interesting pieces of conversation come from the desires of the blind man who “purchased” Chris at auction. He starts off their conversation by sharing how much he admired his work, how he failed at being a great artist bc he lacked “the eye” and how it took him to his current path - which, if you…
