Game of Thrones causes bloodlust but it can also evacuate a BBQ in northwest DC. What a shame. The cracks are showing in the NFL-media megastructure when an ESPN commentator uses a plaintive and desperate saying to grab viewers’ attention in the lazy days of summer. And when it comes to officiating, baseball gives the best forum for it to achieve fulfillment in observation, rule, and application of the rule; whereas, other sports fall short. Of course football totally blows it. And why wish an abstracted, perfect, machinelike rule system in baseball like a robot strike zone? Enough with the football solutions! That sport sucks!!
