“Lorena Gallo, formerly Bobbitt, is hoping that we’re ready to see her as more than a punchline about a severed penis.” I do remember the stories about how her former husband abused her, so I’m on board with this.

“Your Super Bowl Boxes [Were] Almost Certainly Illegal”.

“What replacement players did for the NFL in 1987, fights over steroids have done for MLB since 2002. You cannot separate the disparate treatment of drug-policy offenders, both internally and externally, from the labor dynamics of each league.”

RIP, Bob Friend, longtime Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher.

“What it does show is that AMI is precisely the criminal enterprise, weaponizing pseudo-journalism and cash payoffs on behalf of wealthy associates, as we’ve come to suspect.”
