    17 is definitely old enough to know better. Even if you use word like that in real life, you can't be stupid enough to put it out there on Twitter using your real name. At the same time, even if he said those things today I can't bring myself to care anymore. Dumb people say dumb things. The only cure is public shaming, and the Internet Outrage Machine will take care of that easily. I don't have the energy to get outraged over what every random nobody (basically what a Brewers relief pitcher is) has to say.
  2. The Spurs shipping Leonard off to Them the North despite all his claims that he doesn't want to go there is hilarious.

    Move the Marlins to Montreal and the Devil Rays to Miami.
  4. No league should have a cap. Caps only exist to artificially lower players' salaries and save owners from spending their own money. That it protects any semblance of competitive balance or parity is just an illusion. Let workers earn what they're worth.

    Strange because Moreno was loved when he bought the team. The fanfare he got made it seem like the previous owner was Donald Sterling. He got a lot of positive press coverage for lowering beer prices! Vlad and Torii Hunter! Then came the team name change, threatening to move to Irvine (?), Josh Hamilton...and this is where we are.

    That whole Carl Hardee Sr. campaign was so bizarre. All that fanfare and apparently they canceled it after, what, one ad? And now everything's back to before like it never happened?

    Too bad the Angels have wasted his great career. Has there ever been a player that great whose team has done absolutely nothing with him?
  8. I have the sudden urge to buy a Paul George jersey now.
  9. The Metro station in Inglewood will be 2 miles away from the Rams stadium. Not exactly a walk most people will want to make 10:00 at night after a game. Getting to North Hollywood isn't hard, so it's not going to alienate as many people as Inglewood will. Traffic on the 5 and 101? What about traffic on the 405 and 105 to get to Inglewood? There's traffic everywhere. And the Red Line stops right there.
  10. Inglewood is a terrible location, and Ballmer should have targeted the San Fernando Valley. By itself the Valley has a higher population than most NBA cities, and there's pretty much nothing there in terms of attractions besides Universal Studios. Inglewood just sucks and has no decent public transportation.
  11. Well, yeah. Wondering implies some sort of cognitive ability.
  12. Sometimes I wonder about this board.
  13. El Paso's a dump. It's Albuquerque or bust. New Mexico deserves a pro team, and Ballmer could start his own little tech community there.
  14. The only people worse than Warriors fans are Lakers fans. If those two teams had all the stars, we would truly enter an NBA apocalypse of insufferableness.
  15. It's funny, but this year is probably the first time that the postseason has actually lived up to its title of The Rite of Spring. If you don't know, Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring was so dissonant, unconventional, and avant-garde that it caused a riot during its premiere in Paris. There was booing, hissing, the throwing of objects on stage, and the police were called. The delicate sensibilities of the audience could not handle it, and it's likely that Russians were involved in the staging perhaps intensified things. By the time the performance was finished, those who appreciated the work were cheering louder than usual to try to drown out the detractors. Compare that to this year's NHL playoffs, where an expansion team dared to be good, and darling teams like the Jets were eliminated with little fanfare or suspense. It's the perfect formula for the beau monde elite fans to cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about "What's to be done with this NHL"? The ones who appreciated good hockey just watched and enjoyed it, while the detractors worked themselves up in a frenzy, never allowing themselves the pleasure to be entertained by the masterpiece that was right in front of them. Just like in Paris 100 years ago.
