Sports writing at its finest

Monday, March 24th, 2008

From Covered in Oil (extra-awesomeness in bold): Goals were generally scored with all the ease of delivering the one true ring to the molten hellscape in which it was forged, and when opposing teams answered backā€”it was almost always Joe Sakic, floating into the slot on a fucking cloud and sifting in a shot that […]

Barack Obama responds to McCain’s latest attack ad

Obama brings his oratory prowess to bear in his response to the now-infamous “Vampire” ad during a stump speech in Ohio: Blacula? Is he fucking kidding? What next, John?
