They may be headed for that moment in Ball Four where, when the Pilots start getting trounced by the league's best teams, Bouton says it was like recess in grade school when the big kids showed up, but for tonight exhilarating. (I wish I were downtown, Thermo.) I don't know if we share the American feed, but the endless shots of Drake after every single big Raptor play were somewhere between tiresome and nauseating. He's a fan, great, and sort of works for the team. But he surely realizes he's deflecting attention from the players. To know that, and be okay with that, makes him something of a vainglorious idiot.

yeah i think it's pretty clear we can skip to the finals now

no shot at whoever wrote this way up above but i love it every time sports reminds us that games are won and lost on the court/field and nowhere else - not on twitter, not in a win probability statistic, not in comparing players' strengths and weaknesses, not in the halftime analysis of talking heads, etc., etc.
