Track & Field the best and my favorite sport. Get on my level.

Indoor Track is a close second.

Cross Country (running) is third.



Favorite teams (in order):
Middlebury College ladies XC team
Boston Red Sox (they lose by very large margins, which makes trolling my fanboy friends very easy and effective)
SP ladle team (ins is on it)

Well, the NBA sucks altogether, so Malone's performance therein is just irrelevant.

So, just to be clear: Westbrook did everything right, never got into trouble, was a good teammate, often accounted for the majority of the team's offense, was an exciting playmaker, and was instrumental in their run to the Super Bowl. Him you don't like.

But you look up to a scumbag who abused, tortured, and horrifically murdered dogs, and a prima donna whose ego and selfishness hurt the team and sour the locker room.

"ftw" :roll:

I will say that I have always loved NCAAB more than the NBA because I feel like in college the players care a lot more but Dirk's finals performance last year was absolutely remarkable and got me interested in the NBA a bit more.

Is Malone the reason why nobody plays defense in the NBA? Why there's a "concept of space" and that ridiculous restricted area under the basket (which has now unfortunately invaded the NCAA)? Or why everyone runs away whenever a dude drives the lane? Or any of the other rules designed to favor offense? Or why it's predominantly a one-on-one game rather than a team game (obviously, largely attributable to the predominance of man defense)? Is he responsible for the one-and-done rule? That's the kind of stuff I'm talking about when I say the NBA sucks. And that's not even going into other issues, like its organization, or other social or economic aspects.

*************
Anyway. I was going to whip up a bunch of nifty highlight reel gifs, but I haven't had the time. So, in lieu of that, here's some of the source material I was going to use:

For REAL handegg, Broncos.
Elvis Dumervil; Orange Crush, specifically, Tom Jackson ... FROM.... (do you get ESPN up there?)
Hockey: Canucks of course.
I believe the Canucks of Vancouver are superior warriors.

Football players are cool and all; but Track and Field athletes are where it's at.

the nba started going down hill when they added the three point line. silly gimmick that encourages players to practice and take bad shots.

according the logic represented by the scoring, there's this line, and if you cross it, even by just a millimeter, the shot has become 50% more difficult. It'd be one thing if all shots were scored according to their distance from the basket, at least then the internal logic would be consistent.

no other sport has something this silly. you don't get an extra run for hitting a 450 foot homerun or 4 points for a 50 yard field goal. this ain't pinball.
