re: Woj detonates a bomb on Coach K for using USA Basketball and its players - Baloo
I'm just irritated this is framed as a Coach K hit piece instead of what it started out as: pointing out that international basketball is a God awful and is in dire need of reform. How anyone could be interested in the World Cup is stunning to me. No team presented even the barest challenge to the U...

re: Texas ran off Nebraska, A&M, have their own network and they're awful...why? - Baloo
I work with a bunch of Longhorns... they are absolutely obsessed with A&M. Now, I agree that Aggies are obsessed with Texas to an unhealthy degree, but it cuts both ways. It's almost impossible to figure out which school's fans are more obsessed with the other. Ultimately, it doesn't matter. It's a ...

NBC killed it. ESPN Prime Time was a fantastic show, and had terrific, extended highlights. It was almost like getting the Cliffs Notes on the whole game. Also, the running jokes were pretty great....

re: The Death of Adulthood in American Culture - AO Scott - Baloo
[quote]His big hole, for me, that while Scott tries to examine the whole of culture starting from the conception of the US, he's making the assumptions that the state being achieved in culture now is "right," or "here to stay." In all this talk of upheaval the only natural next step is...another uph...

re: The Death of Adulthood in American Culture - AO Scott - Baloo
My tastes aren't highbrow (I'm quite middlebrow), and my argument was actually in favor of people's individual tastes being valid. My argument was actually in favor of the lowbrow. And I only look down on people who post "TL;DR" as it is inherently anti-intellectual, and essentially brags about one'...

re: Is it just me or is Olberman the best show on ESPN right now? - Baloo
Olberman is a tremendous jackass who is in love with the sound of his own voice and probably truly believes in his own infallibility. He also is a hell of a writer and has a strong editorial voice. So sure, his show is outstanding because it has a point of view, it is contrarian while also being hon...

re: The Death of Adulthood in American Culture - AO Scott - Baloo
AO Scott is full of shite. Really, his complaint is that the cultural universe no longer centers on the taste of upper middle class, private school educated white men from the Northeast: ie, him. He tries to say that he's all in favor of attacking the patriarchy, but only if that attack is in a w...

re: Let's play make believe. Snyder changes team name to "Americans." - Baloo
To answer the OP's question: No. Not a chance in hell. It would be seen as a transparent dodge of the issue. Now, if the team had ALWAYS been called the Americans, then it would be a different discussion, but just changing the name at this point but keeping all of the logos and such is not going to ...
