by all accounts you wont have the washington redskins to kick around much longer. dont know what portends for the braves and indians. a lot of call for renaming them the redtails which sounds a lot like its precursor and ticks off some pc boxes by honoring the tuskeegee airmen. also seeing many cloven hooves up for hogs which is a nickname for the teams offensive line from back in the 80s. already imagining the "hogs slaughtered" headlines. can the redtails be plucked or is that racist? birdist? ableist? everything seems to be ableist on some level. got your favorite stupid dc-related name? swamp rats, filibusters, lobbyist, establishment. my only hope is that the washington monugents get to sing at opening day. and if its at an empty stadium all the better.
korean baseball league uses stuffed animals behind plate in lieu of fans.
holy shit. leave the house for 3 of 4 hours and the world falls apart. ok, maybe the sports world, but still. saw #ripmamba and thought it related to his record to lebron that fell in the last couple of days, not a helicopter he was in. the rape allegation early in his career tainted his legacy but kobe was still probably one of the top 15 players all time, second to jordan alone among shooting guards. whats more he seemed to be enjoying his retirement more than he did his playing days. he was often seen in the company of his daughters and it was always heartening to see the unmitigated joy he exuded in their presence. rest in peace.
eclectic sports site deadspin has been at odds with their corporate overlords over the direction of the site. they were basically told to "shut up and sports" instead of engaging in politics and assorted random topics that makes the site unique. then they fired one of the main writers who posted a non-sports story in defiance. in response the writers/editors have only posted the marginalia that interests them today and then most/many have just up and quit.
women in the quarterfinals against france today at 3pm in paris. hate to be in transit and miss it. thought they were outplayed by spain last game. might have to run the france, england, germany gauntlet to repeat as champs this time around.
one thing i did not realize about john mcenroes famous "you cannot be serious" tirade at wimbledon is that he was absolutely right as the replay moments later showed.

american women start their world cup defense tomorrow. kevin durant comes back from injury to try and save the warriors season tonight. rafa nadal won his 12th french open yesterday. the sports never sleeps only my interest in informing you when you are already drowning in an ocean of information.
could be one of those legendary tv days that youll remember for the rest of your
life week. liverpool v chelsea as liverpool fight to stay 1 point back of manchester city with 5 games to go. pretty good. 4 first round playoff basketball matches.... ehh. good for a channel surf or two. playoff hockey for whoever watches that and baseball for the fox news set. but leading the sporting news as he somehow still manages to do is tiger woods who is currently in second at the start of the final round of the masters. so strap on the ol' jim nance feedbag as they pushed starting times up for weather related reasons. lets see if he can still be in the hunt by the 1130 kickoff of the liverpool game.
and, oh yeah, final truncated season of game of thrones at 9. so excited my toes are almost wiggling. where is a bottle of nembutal when you need it. seriously, i need i bottle of nembutal. just boning up on my barbituates. what a great era that must have been to be
