For months now, I've considered roasting my blogroll. I fear, however, that a roast would be too inside. Moreover, I'm not sure how the roastees would react. I could very well scorch my own earth.
Once upon a time, I was threatened with libel action and suspended indefinitely. More recently, I tweaked McKern (lightheartedly, I thought) and he stopped talking to me.
He's not the first person to stop talking to me over (what I intended to be) a joke.
I'm terrible at gauging sensitivity.
In competition at Sundance:
Big Fan – The world of a hardcore New York Giants football fan (Patton Oswalt) is turned upside down when he is beaten up by his favorite player. [source]
Alas, the player isn't Eli.
The blog I'd planned to test-roast was deleted pre-emptively. :/
Cringe of the now:
Even the lactose intolerant should get this "Milk," and those who are intolerant in other ways would benefit from watching it, too. [source]
I want to visit Los Angeles during the last week of December, but fear that la mayoría de mis amigos del sur already have plans. Stupid holidays…
I am more conflicted about Jon Scheyer than perhaps any other player in the history of my fandom.
I mean: He plays for Duke. And some say he's the heir to the "hatable white shooter" Redick rep.
But Scheyer is the best Jewish player in college basketball leader of the great all-Jewish-starting-5 Glenbrook North H.S. team that won the Illinois state title a couple years ago.
There's this feeling I have that if either of my kids were going to grow up to be college hoops players, I want them to be… Jon Scheyer.
I will now go retch. [source]
