Quote of the Day

"Take a look at these tidbits from [Adam] Morrison's scouting report: "Old school right down to the stripes on the socks ... Like a coach on the floor ... Great intangibles, competes and inspires others to play hard ... Fundamentally solid, does all the little things to help his team win ... Sees the floor well, and is creative finding teammates for baskets ... Runs decent, but needs a head of steam." Let's run that through the racial translator: "[White] right down to the [white] on the [white] ... Like a [white] on the [white] ... [White, white] and [white] ... [White], and is [white] ... [White], but [he's really slow and also he's white]."
-Josh Levin of Slate, in a piece on how every young white basketball player inevitably gets compared to Larry Bird. Posted by Stephen Silver at December 14, 2005 01:04 AM

Steve Silver, you are a coprophage for posting this. Adam (not Andrew) Morrison could choke-slam your pretentiousness figuratively into a weeping mound of hyperbolic literary refuse. All that your readership asks is that you keep it real. Pax

Too bad for you, Steve Silver, a small portion of GU supporters caught wind of you being unable to correctly name the best college basketball player in the country. Unfortunately, whether you realize it or not (I think, not) you are part of the East Coast bias that us Westerners detest. You know nothing of sports or athletes west of the Mississippi River. You and your type will be forced to grudgingly pay homage when USC wins the national title (again) and when the Seattle Seahawks continue to destroy every NFL team in its path. Dispicable.
