Those damed Refs

What's Mallard raving about today?

The NBA, Referees.

I find it interesting that Mallard's point of entry into this particular story is the perspective of an angry, yelling fan.

Make of that what you will.

I think people yelled comments like the Now guy back Then, too.

Following the "Free Speech Zone" concept (that to my knowledge, Tinny has never once touched upon), fans should be herded into an isolated area five miles away from the stadium so that their yelling will not disturb the tender sensibilities of athletes and referees.

Actually, Tinsley has touched on "Free Speech Zones" before. In his mind, FPZ are designed by liberals to keep down the poor conservative minority.

For a guy who shouts to a ref that he needs glasses, he sure squints a lot. And he can't seem to find his mouth to amplify his voice.

Michael said...

Is the "now" heckler foppishly rolling out his hand, or is he practicing his waitering skills?

It isn't a half-assed drawing of anyone, so why can't he open his eyes?

Tinny's afraid of eyes, I bet all the mirrors are covered in his house, if he allows them. (Yes, I read Carrie recently.)

I didn't know what sport this guy was shouting about - I thought you did most official-bashing in baseball?

I really should watch the news more often, but the Daily Show and the 30 minutes of the BBC news on PBS just aren't enough for me to understand Mallard.

Especially since he's always months behind the rest of the world.
