  • 41-Day NBA Warning: Basketball YouTube Is Why the Internet Was Invented

    What’s that? You were wondering exactly how many days until the start of the NBA season? Well, you’re in luck! The Triangle is counting down the days for all of us.

  • The 1975: Ruthlessly Catchy and Accidentally Interesting

    You’re not supposed to vote for the same song in your annual best-of list three years in a row, but “Sex” is an exceptional song and, as such, I will need to make an exception. The song of which I speak has been recorded three separate times by, for all intents and purposes, three completely […]

  • 'I'm Sorry We Aired That Jaguars Game' … and the Rest of the Month in Sports Apologies

  • I Suck at Football: Inebriates of the Air

    Big week this week for my first-ever fantasy football team, the Lords Disick, which is remarkable because the Lords Disick are a terrible team. I’ve never been in an auction draft before and I blew all my fake money in the first two or three rounds and spent the rest of the draft picking up […]

  • Meth Meridian: This Is Where Walter White's GPS Coordinates Actually Lead You

    One of my favorite scenes ever in Breaking Bad comes about two-thirds of the way through the pilot episode. The scene begins with Walter White stepping out of his RV; his new partner, Jesse Pinkman, is nowhere to be seen. As Walt surveys the area, we see Jesse emerge from a lookout about 30 yards […]

  • The C-Webb Rabbit Hole: 17 Stray Thoughts From the Chris Webber Era

    I spent a considerable part of the last week living in the NBA of the 1990s and early 2000s, preparing what I hope will be a lasting contribution to the discussion of Chris Webber’s place in basketball history. Everyone about my age — I just turned 36 — was old enough to watch games of […]
