Tonight's Questions

| | Comments (20)


Yesterday might have been highbrow day at Walkoff Walk, what with Drew's outstanding Pitch F/x piece but we sunk into the morass today, including that Duck Tales remix above (via Mental Floss). I'd apologize, but that's just part of the human condition y'all.

Tomorrow: get ready for a double dose of D-Mac. The latest recap of The Pen drops in the AM and Dan's gonna liveglog the Phillies-Cubs tilt at 1PM. Same WoW channel.

The Harden and Blanton Show sounds like a bluegrass lover's radio paradise.

Oh, and that ANI v. NFL article is massively overblown, not to mention poorly researched.

The NFL is pushing for an antitrust exemption, yes, but given the Court's reluctance to grant such, I doubt highly that's the way the case will turn here, even if they're hearing this case.

Even if they get it: Is that the end of the world in sports?

If so, explain how sports have survived since 1922, which is the date since when the MLB has been exempt from antitrust laws. There are existing antitrust exemptions in all sports anyway, including collective bargaining of television rights.

How you can go an entire article about antitrust and sports without deigning to mention MLB's 80+ year old AT exemption blows my mind.

Besides, if things get out of hand, Congress can, as suggested in Flood v. Kuhn (names sound familiar?) pass a law against the antitrust exemption for sports leagues, as the Court suggested.

Brian Cook has a much more even-handed, sane, and smart take at: http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/the_sporting_blog/entry/view/28561/nfl_set_to_blow_up_antitrust_actions,_eliminate_free_agency,_steal_your_baby

Yes but how is that post going to get me a cheaper Kansas City Chiefs trucker hat?

That ducktales remix is both awesome and disturbing

DANG IT

Oddly, that's not even the most disturbing use of Duck Tales characters that I've seen. See Spencer Hall's take on Launchpad McQuack.

matt_T's granny ghostride video is awesome.

Guess who has to go to a wedding at 11:00 am tomorrow? This guy!

Who on earth gets married on a Wednesday?

at 11:00 am? Is the bride like 8 months, three weeks, siz days pregnant?

Gorge, that's the lamest excuse evar for getting out of tomorrow's Liveglog.

Gorge, wear your liveglog blazer to the wedding.

I will definitely wear the blazer. Chief, she's not pregnant, but he is both "untraditional", to put it kindly, and underemployed. So, rather than go to the courthouse, they decided to do something a bit bigger but on the cheap.

In any case, they're killing me.

Oh, and I have a Hipster Update: My brother was coming back from one of the farmers markets here last week, and hipsters had taken over a parking lot for an impromptu block party. Lots and lots of hipster detail, but I'll skip to the end and tell you that the DJ was working off a reel-to-reel.

Wow Gorge, that makes my fixed gear hipster softball team look like a Monster Truck race.

How do you play hipster softball?

Do the skinny ties interfere with your swing?

Does everybody really respect the first guy in the lineup to get a hit and then act condescending towards anybody else who gets on base?

How do you tell the beer league softball teams apart from the hipster softball teams if they're both drinking PBR?

The regular hipsters here don't ride fixies, they rock banana-seated Schwinns and such. Fixed-gear bikes are EVERYWHERE in Portland, though--usually piloted by guys wearing rolled jeans and skinny shirts. 2G Hipsters, maybe?
