Because I am good and kind and gracious, I will not talk about the smackdown in the Bronx last night. Also because I know that we have a shaky Lieber and some rookie whose name I can't remember going up against Wakey-Wakey and Pedro, and that we live in a cyclical world, and what goes around comes around, etc.
However, I DO have something sports-related to rant about, and it is ESPN's unceasing and unrelenting coverage of the Lakers and their current saga. WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LAKERS? IT'S THE MIDDLE OF BASEBALL SEASON! AND THE LAKERS LOST!!! Fercrissakes. Every single day since the Finals ended, there's some stupid bullshit speculative "story" every morning on Sportscenter about "What's next for the Lakers?" and it gets in the way of my Yankees highlights. Also, why not do some coverage on the fucking PISTONS, who actually WON? I have the same burning hatred for unnecessary Lakers stories as I do for the ongoing McDonald's "I'm lovin' it" ad campaign. I wonder if the two are connected.
