Bongwater: The Early Years
I'm trying to finish up my thesis, so you will have to wait till later for this incredibly confrontational post on space and bias I'm planning. Until then, allow me to submerge you in the unthinkable, as I craft my first ever FreeDarko Midafternoon Links Depot:
-Al Jefferson's style flummoxes league officials. I posted on this over at the FanHouse because I love money, but as an FD-worthy news item this shit is pure gold. Feel free to discuss on here.
-One year, when my fantasy team fell apart early on, I renamed it "The Al Jefferson Fog." How true that would prove to be, in his life and in my own.
-When I read Black Planet for the first time, I was totally confused, annoyed, and inspired. Luckily, the leader of our Seattle contingent tracked the guy down and got some of my questions about the book answered.
-I promise I will never, ever do this again. And I am perfectly willing to chalk this up to thesis-related hysteria (as I do a lot of things I've done these last few days). But for god's sake, if someone has a copy of Hopson Family, "On the Mainline" that they're willing to part with, PLEASE SELL IT TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Note: Neither Bongwater nor the Hopson Family are jazz, nor are they basketball.
