Where Bad Sports Journalism Came To Die

FJM has gone dark for the foreseeable future. Sorry folks. We may post once in a while, but it's pretty much over. You can still e-mail dak, Ken Tremendous, Junior, Matthew Murbles, or Coach.

Terror Ball

I don't even really know what to say about this. Take it away, sitcom-character-named Kevin Ding:

There's a school of thought — and it's a pretty smart school — that says every time we in the media go about referencing "The War on Terrorism" rather than, let's say, "The Crusade for Peace," we are giving the terrorists a little more energy, charging our lives with a little more fear and basically feeding a little more power to something so wrong.

What do you think this article is about? Is it...

A) An op-ed piece about the Justice Department's handling of Gitmo prisoners?
B) A critical evaluation of the media's role in servicing the Neo-Con agenda?
C) A quote from a lecture on the semantics of noun-phrases?
D) A way to kick off a discussion of Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash?

If you answered (D), you are crazy...and correct!

Translated, that would mean that every time we hark back to the breakup of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal instead of the championships they won together, it fuels the falsehood that people can't live and work together instead of accentuating how they certainly can.

That's what it means? "Translated?"

That's what makes Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki an interesting case study. There is one easy way to slant their story, because since they broke up, neither has won a championship.

Wow. Terrorism to Nash/Nowitzki in three short paragraphs (by way of Kobe-O'Neal, no less). Chandler Bing, you have outdone yourself.

Tip o' the hat to reader/friend David E. for (a) the link and (b) his never-ending crusade in aiding the war on terror. And by that I mean his love of the San Francisco Giants.
