No One Notices The Spurs Because No One Notices San Antonio

Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,… » 6/08/13 4:11pm 6/08/13 4:11pm

Brian Bosworth Had A Real Nice Time At The xx Concert

You probably remember Brian Bosworth as the crazy linebacker with weird hair who was good in college but sucked in the NFL and once got trucked by Bo Jackson.

Finally, Someone Built The New Sonics Arena Out Of 110 Pounds Of Butter

We should note that this is not actually the new Sodo arena, with which Seattle hopes to lure an NBA franchise; this is only a model.

Can Seattle Support Any More Sports Teams?

It's more or less assumed that if Chris Hansen and Seattle can build a new arena, the reincarnated Sonics would return.
