    I feel my comment about Dumbass Dylan Hernández jinxing the Dodgers is turning into a prophecy, and he can officially go fuck himself, but that little part of me that loves an underdog story is also kind of here for it? Even though it's the Braves? For whom I have nothing but antipathy? I blame the double psycho whammy of Trevor Bauer and Blake Treinen and the fact that we won* (most 2020 sports champions get *s from me) last year. Should the Braves go on to win the NLCS and then lose the WS to whichever cheating bag of dicks team wins the ALCS, though, I will damn them straight to hel

    I love the Dodgers! My fellow Dodgers fans, though, can be the worst (other than Phillies fans); I freely admit it. I also completely understand those who hate the Dodgers. Unless they're Giants fans. I hate the Braves because I grew up in North Carolina in the 90s when it was all Braves all the time and the chop, so there was definitely a bit of a contrarian thing going on, but I absolutely felt like all the players seemed like assholes. I wanted to take a 2x4 to Chipper Jones' smug, ugly face so many times. I can't say it's rational, but I've never quite gotten over my antipathy to

    The chop is gross and racist, and I remember thinking that when I was a teenager in the 90s living in North Carolina. Dylan Hernández wrote that horrible column for the LA Times. His columns are clickbait trash, and he usually is obscenely critical of the Dodgers. That column was so brazenly pro-Dodgers and so ridiculously disrespectful of the Braves that I'd almost believe he's deliberately trying to jinx the Dodgers. If that was his goal, it's working so far!

    I mean, that's essentially this ALCS since both are about the end of America and of civilization and of the world as we know it. However, The Day After Tomorrow has approximately 11 billion times the entertainment value and doesn't involve cheating cheaters who cheat. So, there's that. What I'm saying is, I unashamedly love The Day After Tomorrow (I mean, 57 tornadoes annihilating LA all at once? As an Angeleno, YES, that shit is hilarious!!!!!), and you made the only correct choice!

    I was rooting for the Dodgers and hate the Giants like any moral person should, but that final call... If that was a swing, then I'm Angelina Jolie.

    Absolutely, but being a straight white guy in a power position (an owner or a head coach) certainly helps enormously.

    He already had his metaphorical day in court, though. What more is there for him to explain further than he already has (terribly)? He said after the first email was leaked that he didn't remember writing it and didn't have a racist bone in his body, which was clearly bullshit since a slew of other correspondences were subsequently released. He doesn't need or deserve another metaphorical day in court. This was not a one-off, for which I still wouldn't have much forgiveness; this happened over a period of years. It's what you do when no one's looking (or when you think no one's looking) t

    It seemed clear to me when I watched it that that "But I'M special!!1!" line was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek and intended to poke fun at himself, but Gronk can't...I mean, he just...he clearly doesn't take himself seriously (which I like about him), but he canNOT deliver a scripted line with any kind of humorous nuance because the elevator doesn't go all the way up. I'm not even sure it goes halfway up. My physical attraction to him is one of my least favorite things about myself. Basically: But, really, my brain gets angry at me.

    Nothing about Baker Mayfield is adorable. He can't help but radiate "smarmy douche" even when squirting nacho cheese into trick-or-treaters' bags. Gronk's issue is that he's just...a few fries short of a Happy Meal. If it's possible to speak out loud like you're reading with your finger, he manages to accomplish that. I mean, I still would tooooootally hit that, but I would haaaaaaate myself in the morning.

    Haha, I wish I could claim vast prior knowledge of this stuff, but I just googled it. I'm really not that impressive.😆 I will say, though, that the initial comment struck me because I do know the 760 area code covers a HUGE portion of California and it seemed an odd statement to make; that's why I looked into it. Also, I do live in Los Angeles and have been to the Palm Springs area a few times and know it's not as fancy as people might think. There are certainly areas with expensive homes, but most of the homes are fairly normal. It's a lovely area, though, no matter what.

    And he'd still be wrong. Palm Springs really isn't that wealthy, although that certainly is the perception people have. The median annual household income in Palm Springs is around $53,500; by contrast, Fisher Island's is around $2.5 million.

    If Blake said that about Indian Wells, he's wrong; if he said it about Miami, though, that wouldn't be off the mark since the wealthiest zip code (wealth is usually ranked by zip code) is Miami Beach (specifically, the Fisher Island zip code) and one area code ranking I saw had 305, which covers Miami and the Florida Keys, at the top. Indian Wells is in the 760 area code, which covers a gigantic portion of California and includes some very, very poor communities.
