Made me laugh out loud more than once. Good job Mike.
“Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be.”
As much as I fear making myself into one of the very people whose follies this article exposes, does anyone know a good place to find edited game clips?
I think Mike got it wrong when saying that every player highlight video is set to the tune of some hip hop song; every video is actually set to Lux Aeterna, which is such an epic piece it can make watching paint dry seem like a world-saving event.
They should really go genre bending and set it to Liberi Fatali.
I think Blitzball Outsiders is the next website over. Though they always overrate the Psyches.
Fantastic as always, I like the idea of a Norton Anthology of Draft Prospects, but I am now expecting sonnets about hybrid Tight Ends in the style of Sylvia Plath.
I think Burfict might stick his head in an oven some day. Is that close enough?
