I am no Mike Francesca fan but their article on Mike & the Mad Dog's 9/11 broadcasts is so stupid. Here is the gist:

"We heard some people say they said bad things about Jews and others during this broadcast"
"they weren't keeping copies of the broadcasts, but a few still exist and we found one in a library"
"we listened to it, remember, people said they said baaaaaaaad things"
"everything on the tape we heard was standard issue Mike & the Mad Dog garbage."

The end. I'll let you guess whether they had a giant baity headline with an image of two smoldering microphones.

Deadspin taking shots at our beloved Sports Guy.

ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz, who has covered the team up close for years, gives typically thoughtful and informed consideration to the organization’s quandary, in the best* of the handful of kinda-sorta eulogies the Clippers received over the past week.


*The worst of these is Bill Simmons’s, of course, coming to us from the same bizarre alternate dimension as all his other posts, a nightmare place where the meaning and purpose of Chris Paul’s career is to convince Bill Simmons that he meets Bill Simmons’s criteria for inclusion in Bill Simmons’s Candace Cameron Memorial Pantheon of Great Point Guards™ or whatever the fuck.

Interesting article, but you posted it in the wrong thread

It does a very good job of explaining the nuts and bolts of the world of professional darts but it only addresses the game of 501. Granted, the pros ONLY play that game, but in most leagues around here, we play other 01 games and Cricket, often as teams of two on two.

If you ever want to watch darts on TV, reading this article first would definitely help you to figure out what the hell is going on.
Ballz: So, I fucking got a BJ for $250 total, and wore a rubber. It sucked, I couldnt even feel it, so i jeckyled onto her tits. She was cute. Not even that far out of my league, it was a waste of $250

I had no idea the pros only played 501. I assumed it was more like your league, where there are a couple three different games to determine an overall winner.
