  1. Irritates me to see writers as skilled as Andy Graham, Jeremy Price, and Mike Miller providing links to read pieces from places that can’t stack up to their level of expertise. Instead, they have been sold a bag of goods to change this place into Androidsville, closet the unique historical knowledge and writing skills they are far superior, in favor of clumsy video presentations and twitter feeds.

    Who is left to tell a story and do it artfully?

    You will kill sports by taking the romance out of the words. Maybe, in a hundred years, an underworld of romanticists will evolve; a long hidden away passion to bring the heart back into sports will rise up to destroy the machines… A grandiloquent Terminator of sorts will arrive with only a pencil to destroy the clones with the iPhone “Sports Temple” implanted in the side of their collective heads(popularized in 2078 for constant virtual reality ESPN streaming/3-D feeds) …
    Nah, won’t happen. The “iFlynt’ implanted in the temple will have already killed sports.

  2. Izzo must be taking a page put of Crean’s offense. Dribble, dribble, pass, pass, pass, oh crap shot clock is about to expire, either chuck it or turnover. That is the MSU offense so far versus UK. Sound familiar? Not seeing a typical MSU team. No penetration, no dribble drive then dish. Maybe too many freshman and not enough floor leadership.

  3. Dudley Moore….from Arthur. If I recall correctly, he was also in ’10’ with Bo Derek. Long time ago…The sun and the moon are certainly picking up speed these days.
    Rather sad thinking back now. Didn’t Dudley have a very tough time with a rare nervous system disease? He was a gifted and very funny man.

  4. Phil Jackson just guaranteed the Knicks are going to be paying a whole lot more money for the same players than they would have needed to come contract time.

  5. Back to Frank Mason. His game is more than a little bit like Yogi’s except that Yogi would give up the ball a bit sooner than Mason. He’s a scorer first. Yogi wanted that last shot but he was a facilitator first.
