    The NBA

    I really hope someone (Zach Lowe?) writes a history of this year's free agency. Two weeks that were totally crazy, player driven and transformed the landscape of the league more than any offseason I can remember. (In any sport.)
  2. Do it! Haven't been around for a while because I quit the show a couple of months ago. Primarily because I found it boring and entirely predictable. I feel much calmer and I'm pretty sure my blood pressure has gone down.
  3. Good news on an otherwise shitty day. R. Kelly Denied Bond, to Be Held in New York on Multiple Federal Sex Crime Charges

    Does Lincoln Riley really think he is fooling anyone?

    This whole Rich Energy/Haas thing is fascinating. Questions about Rich having enough money to finance the team, the logo lawsuit and the "rogue" twitter posts. . . The British GP felt like two races. The first half was really exciting. With Hamilton challenging Bottas and Ferrari vs Red Bull. Then the safety car came out. Hamilton took first and it became another boring race.

    Two ball dominant triple double machines on the same team. This should be interesting.

    I can't change the past. But every time I see the Josh Norman/running with the bulls clip, I root for the bull. ETA Must have been thinking about the Melvin Gordon news when I originally wrote that post.

    Anyone know why the got rid of the All Star Game specific uniforms? Most of them were awful, but that was part of the fun. ETA That moment with Carasco and his team mates was really powerful.

    I like watching the kids shag flies.

    Last night, Reds prospect Taylor TramMELL put on a show at the futures all star game. However, I doubt I will ever pronounce his name right because I remember watching Alan TRAMmell.
  14. This all revolves around the 1MDB fund scandal. Financcial manager Jho Low is accused of stealing billions from a Malaysian government fund. One of the things he spent his money on? Cultivating access to a wide variety of celebrities. Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ludacris and others.

    Le Tour and Other Cycling Talk

    The primary reason I watch is for the competition. But the scenery is a close second. The organizer's route selection and the network's production value make this a great watch even if you are like me and don't know a lot about cycling.
