On this day, where we give thanks, I am grateful for: The ability to write, especially about sports, which I love. To cover Detroit, the city my father is from, and the teams I love: Michigan, Tigers, Clippers, Red Wings, Pistons, Lions, Whitecaps, Griffins, Peyton & Denver, and every sporting event with swag that allows […]
How blessed are we? Bill Walton is announcing this whole fucking Maui tournament! (Or so it seems!)

We can’t hit in football, check you in basketball, or seem to appreciate small ball in baseball, allowing every sport to be sensationalized. And […]
John Mulaney is a man who cannot control his swag. That means, his swagger is out of control. (People don’t understand this is the highest of compliments!)
