Really into this. Agreed on not looking up stuff online. I read an interview with Simon and he mentioned Catherine Keener's character so I think I know where things are going with her. Don't know about anything else. ....except that it's going to had tragically obviously. Because David Simon is writing it.
Was I late on the drinking game thing? Thought that was original. DK, the dysfunction in our franchise actually led to a playoff win last year. It was enjoyable. This actually seems like one of the most stable periods of the franchise during Jerry's reign. They're making smart decisions, drafting well and actually have good coaching. Now would be a good time to just ignore us like we ignore Houston.
The professional team I care most about (Dallas Mavericks) had an NBA championship stolen from them, unbiased journalists agreed it was stolen from them... and I bring it up like once a year. Simmons and you have an obsession. No story merits five tweets a day or a daily theboreds update unless you're uncovering genocide or slavery.
Ever since his deal with HBO was announced, every single Bill Simmons tweet has been about the Brady scandal. It's probably a good thing he got canned because apparently he wouldn't have had anything meaningful to say the past 6 months. Hopefully he gets over it before his show starts.
Or is it possible that you two are having the opposite experience? I honestly don't see how anyone wouldn't be bored to death by this season. The dialogue is so damn boring and slow. It just isn't good.
When I watched Inherent Vice I felt confused, but wanted to think harder and catch up because the story was interesting. When I watch this I feel confused, but make no effort to catch up because there is no significance in the reveal. I was trying to pinpoint why I get so bored watching this. There are slower shows or shows with less action, but this one just bores the hell out of me. I realized it this week: Every single scene is too long.
Did you see his thing with Mark Cuban? He tweeted that Cuban was driving around Houston texting people, trying to get DeAndre's address. Cuban called him out on it and said it was bullshit. Broussard responded saying it wasn't. Then Cuban said he'd give Broussard $100k for charity if he had any evidence. I hate Broussard. There's something that makes him less professional than Marc Stein or Woj. He's a weasel.
DeAndre Jordan bitching out like the Aggie he is. Apparently he's having second thoughts. The Cliippers are breaking the unwritten rule and going after a player who's agreed to sign elsewhere. DeAndre is probably going to sign with the Clippers. Wes Matthews tweeted he's gone if DeAndre's gone. Celtics own Mavs 2016 1st round pick (top 7 protected).
DeAndre and Wes Matthews to Dallas would be great. But judging off how many guys have already signed, if Dallas misses on them like they missed on everyone else... their roster could be really ugly next year. If they choose someone else, the best we can hope for is Robin Lopez, Tobias Harris and Patrick Beverley.
