1500 ESPN Represents All Types of Viewpoints

There's a really old grumpy white guy. There's a younger white guy whose facial hair and frown connotes a certain confused toughness. There's a couple of other white guys in the middle.* There's an old white guy with a leather jacket, which means his reactionary conservatism is somehow a cool, rebellious stance**. And photoshopped in, Mike and Mike! When Mike Greenberg (a pretty fantastic douche in his own right), is the one whisper of a minority voice on your banner photo, and you are discussing sports full time, you may wish to think about how you are going about business. Just sayin'.

*I feel a bit bad about that one, as Judd Zulgad, the 3rd white guy from the left, is one of my favorite radio hosts in the Twin Cities. He deserves his job, which necessitates waking up early in the morning, driving to an AM sports station, and having to engage with, for hours at end, Jeff Dubay. I take it back - Zulgad doesn't deserve that at all. He deserves something a bit better.

**To be clear, that isn't supposition. That's Joe Soucheray, host of Garage Logic, and he's tough as fucking nails! He's an angry, leathery Ward Cleaver, complaining, for example, about how single moms are ruining society. Seriously. A couple of months ago, he made that argument. A couple of months ago!

OK, NOW Hip-Hop is Dead

Thanks to these white dummies. By the way, hip-hop was on the verge of making it back from the brink, until this happened:

"I don't speak lines but I spit the facts
28%, the new capital gains tax."

It just couldn't fight that kind of shittiness. It tried, ya'll, it tried. Just remember, these guys did what Vanilla Ice couldn't do, what Christian MC Hammer couldn't do, what fucking Snow couldn't do. They killed hip-hop, and then jacked off on the corpse.

Timberwolves Win Streak Now Stands at Four!

A Timberwolves fan can be forgiven for approaching the past few years of this team with the same attitude that a small child (or an easily frightened adult, like me) takes to horror movies--the covering of one's face with an occasional question:  "Is it safe to look yet?"

In the wake of a four game win streak, some fans are perhaps thinking that is safe to look now.   But before you think that the team is going to be competent and unpainful to watch from now on, a quick caveat:

This four game winning streak has been put together by defeating (current records):  Golden State (10-27); Chicago (15-20),  Memphis (11-25), and Oklahoma! City (5-31).  The best team that the Wolves have faced during this streak is a team 5 games below .500!   It is possible the streak ends when they face the comparitively dangerous Milwaukee Bucks this weekend, who are only 3 games below .500.  

The real issue comes in the following weeks, when Wolves fans will see how our team fares against well-run franchises--before January is done we'll see Miami, Phoenix, Clippers ("well-run" may not be the tag of choice for that franchise, admittedly), Utah, and New Orleans.   I wouldn't assign any sort of Win/Loss ratio to that run of games to describe success.  I think just not looking awful, and being competitive will be a great thing for a team that's just beginning to realize that it doesn't have to lose every game this year. 

But is it safe to look yet?  The scary music is over for the moment, but this team may just be setting you up with a false sense of security.  If you haven't been watching yet, you may just want to avert your gaze for another week or two.  We'll tell you when it is safe to look. 

PS--Did you know that Brian Cardinal is "scrappy"?  Well, did you know it was possible to play him for almost 26 minutes in an actual NBA game?  It's true!  That factoid alone should be a pretty sobering jolt for any drunkenly optimistic Wolvie fans.

There's Room in NBDL for Gritty White Kids

Gerry MacNamara, beloved Syracuse sniper, and Never-Ever NBA player, has made his way to the NBDL.

Since I Dislike Syracuse, and hate gritty, gym rat whiteys even more, I greet this news with a bit of giggling. Wait, you mean Gerry MacNamara wasn't as important as Hakim Warrick, or Carmelo Anthony? Travesty!
