As the years pass, I’m starting to think that the New England Patriots’ incredible success over the last two decades is really due in large part of being blessed to play in the clown-college conference that is the AFC East.
Case in point, the New York Jets introduced ex-Miami Dolphins retread Adam Gase as their new head coach and man, did he look coked out of his fucking mind.
Long ago, I worked for a large corporate chain (let’s just assume that I was a janitor) and I remember this time when our CEO was set to visit. The months leading up to that visit, we had hundreds of lower-tiered executives from all over the region we were assigned to descend onto our location. Countless hours, money, and man-power went into preparing for this visit so that everything would go off without a hitch.
Soon enough, the big day had finally arrived. The CEO waltzed in to take a quick tour, shook some hands and stood in for some photo-ops. Just as they planned: everything about that visit was spot-on perfect.
And all I remember thinking was, “what a fucking a waste.”

With the announcement of his retirement earlier today, it’s easy to assume that Manu Ginobili’s professional career will mostly be remembered for his contributions to the Spurs’ four championships as a member of San Antonio’s “Big Three” including Tim Duncan and Tony Parker and that’s really unfortunate. Summing his career like that is an incredibly criminal understatement because Manu was so much more. Manu was a wizard. Keep Reading
On August 14th, a committee of adults decided the fate of a teenager, one of whom would have had zero tangible consequence to any of the members of said committee, because the University Interscholastic League bylaws for transfers are utter bullshit. Keep Reading
A trial date has been set for September 24th for a lawsuit filed back on July 18th by Ex-Mayor of Mission Beto Salinas who has accused the newly elected mayor, Dr. Armando O’Caña of voter fraud and a bunch of other shady dealings. Keep Reading
I’d imagine that working in local news is a pain in the ass. You need to fill up hours per day with all kinds of shit and yesterday, KGBT Channel 4 did their absolute best.
