    I take very good care of myself.

    But today I have decided that it might not matter because basketball is going to kill me anyway.

    I should have watched that game. I had it on long enough to say “Go Virginia” then turned it off.

    I’m now watching the Hornets play the Heat, because apparently I have a level of self-loathing that I was not fully in touch with.

    Hornets are winning at the moment though.

    So ABC is ending their affiliation with INDYCAR going into 2019, leaving the door open for NBC, who inexplicably lost F1 to ESPN in the States. ABC has been massively unpopular with the core Indy fan base, mainly due to their cheap and careless production standards.

    With half of the NASCAR season on their networks, and the great work that they do with the Premier League and various European sporting events, I'd love to see NBC take it on. While many expected FS1 to be the largest competitor for ESPN, I absolutely think NBCSN puts forward a better product. And give me Dan Patrick over the slew of pretentious jackasses on Fox any day.

    That's because overall his show is very fun and loose, yet Patrick knows when to be serious when the situation calls for it.

    Deadspin's got their annual Name of the Year Bracket out. Fantastic as ever:

    I'd give the edge to #1 overall seed Salami Blessing, of course, but strong showings should be expected from both Rev. Dongo Pewee and Dr. Taekwondo Byrd. Mike Diaper, Tuna Altuna, Delicious Peters, Babucarr Fatty, and Dr. Pitt Derryberry are all dark horses.

    PICK EM

    @DarthTunick I am shocked that you neglected Sir'Zion Dance, cousin of your famous Starfighter Draft ace, Villain Dance.

    Maybe they can make a Ready Player One for sports geeks with references to, like, the Ickey Shuffle, the Nothing But Net Commercials...and, idk, the softball episode from The Simpsons. I would get those references.

    What other references could we put in the movie?
