The Sports Reporters, a Sunday morning talk show in which boomer columnists who stopped actually watching sports when Michael Jordan retired for the second time take turns benevolently donating their dignifying Pensive Faces to the vulgar ball-games, will be canceled, according to a report by Sports…
The danger, if you can call it that, of regularly watching Lionel Messi play soccer—which is to say, to watch one man routinely perform stupefying acts of brilliance the likes of which you’ve never seen before—is that at some point, you run the risk of becoming inured to it.
Before his team took on the Magic in Orlando yesterday afternoon, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was introduced to the home crowd as a “former Orlando Magic star.” That was a curious way to describe Kerr, seeing as how he only ever played 47 games in Orlando, where he averaged 2.6 points per game.
