Yes the whole “pivot to video” thing was based on maliciously faked data, but it also brought us Dom wielding that stupid fucking chopstick so I say it was worth it.
Dom thank you for putting this out here. So great to get first hand account of a former player who not only was in a similar situation as a teammate but also a friend of a star player who could give the proper perspective. If only major outlets like ESPN could offer this counter viewpoint to give people an actual… Read more
Mayock has played this poorly. You wanted this super-diva, and you got him. Now that he’s acting like a super-diva, you leak to your guy Mike Silver that he had (shocker!) a “different set of rules” and “imagine if another employee...” stuff — nope. He’s not just another employee; he gets another set of rules —… Read more

It was the 80s, a more gentle, innocent time when chewing was viewed as the healthy alternative to smoking with those Walt Garrison “just a pinch ‘tween yer cheek an’ gum” Skoal commercials. That was before the mouth and gum cancer research started to… Read more

Fast forward a few weeks and we… Read more

In the middle of a blowout game during the preseason, I get subbed in for the top of the 6th in right field. I grew up in the SF Bay Area, and the… Read more
Playing in the Big XII Championship I hit a shitty punt and dude is returning it and is getting forced to the sideline and I am there and he is acting like he is about to just run out and then the last second lowers his shoulder and just plows me where I go flying heels over head like a little bitchass rag doll on… Read more
High School Swim Team. My gal K and I are swimming in the same race. We’re in lanes next to each other, so we can keep an eye on each other as we’re swimming. I hit the water and I am FEELING IT. I’m freaking cruising. Even better, I can see K is keeping time with me. We are both killing it, and both feeling that… Read more
