Dignity For Sale
Before we go any further with this, let us be clear: This is probably the dumbest baseball story of the year. White Sox pitcher Chris Sale, who by any metric is having a stellar season and is his team's best player, went so ballistic over the discomfort off...

Our Final Word on DeflateGate
The official, final Sportsthodoxy position on DeflateGate: Read this before you say anything. Because context is important.  It is highly likely that the Patriots have engaged in ball shenanigans. So have many other teams. That being said, it does not matte...

On Buying Baseball Cards
Every year I buy 1 (one) pack of baseball cards. This is in part a nod to the collecting mania I had when I was a kid - not as an investor but as someone who genuinely loved baseball cards to play with and flip with friends and whatever - and in part annual...

Things We Will See Today At The NBA Draft
In no particular order: The Philadelphia 76ers will take Ben Simmons #1 overall. The Los Angeles Lakers will take Brandon Ingram #2 overall. The national media will gush over the Lakers' choice and talk about how this means "the Lakers are back", never mind...

Thoughts on the NBA Draft
By all accounts, Ben Simmons is the consensus #1 talent in the draft. He is supposed to be the one game-changing talent, the one draftee who has the potential to elicit comparisons to LeBron or Magic someday. He is the best player available, and the Sixers ...

A Simple Question About Game 7
A question: If the Cavaliers win game 7 of the NBA Finals tonight, it cements LeBron James' legacy as one of the greatest players of all time, as well as a "champion" who single-handedly dragged his team back from the abyss and led them to victory (Draymond...

On the NBA Summer League, and Perceptions Thereof
One of the great joys of being an obsessive sports fan is reading the coverage of the minutiae. Take, for example, the NBA summer leagues, in all their various guises, and the media coverage thereof. Now, these things serve a useful purpose. They let prized...

All Star Game Roster Logic
There are people who want the rosters of the MLB All-Star Game to consist of the hottest players from this season. Their logic is that they want to see the players who are playing the best, and that what matters for this year's game is what the player has d...

Last NBA Draft Thoughts - Post-Draft Analysis
In no particular order It's kind of sad that the Sixers were regarded as having "won" the draft by dint of A)not doing any of the egregiously stupid things they were rumored to be doing and B)simply taking the best player available when their pick came up. ...

Your Handy-Dandy Guide to NBA Draft-Speak 2016 Edition

A Quick Post-Finals Note
We have just witnessed a remarkable NBA Finals. Cleveland came back from being down 3 games to 1, an unprecedented event, and did so after being given up for dead by pretty much everyone outside their own locker room. LeBron James put on one of the great al...

Like dining in a Mad Men episode. My wife and I have never had a bad meal there, and the staff is friendly and courteous. The salad bar is a little underwhelming, but frankly, if you're going to a steakhouse for the salad bar you've already slipped up your decision making process somewhere along the way. Food comes out to the table quickly, the staff is attentive without being intrusive, and the dining room sound level actually allows for conversation. Recommended.

My wife and I have nothing but good things to say about Cozy Cat. They have been wonderful in helping us with our elderly cats, they're thorough without recommending things that are unnecessary, and they're always up front about treatment options. The staff are generous, friendly and responsive, and have always treated our cats well. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I've had a long track record of generally good work with this office for various services including gutter cleaning and pressure washing. Recently there was an issue; the location's management was very pleasant to deal with and we resolved the situation amicably.
