From the Mailbag, Heavy with Sighs

This came to me via an anonymous reader, and I am very thankful for it. Other update: Enter our KGF contest—you can drop the "obscure" and "seventies" from the prompt now—and read me on Melo's contract and GM class struggle. Now, enjoy.

"I recently wrote and produced on a Canadian TV show for tweens called Wingin' It and Randy Foye was a guest star. We wanted someone recognizable to a Canadian audience so the producers got us Randy Foye?! The theory among the writers is that some agent or manager swindled the exec-producers into thinking Randy was a real score."



"The series also features a talking raccoon named Dennis, who is a hokey-looking puppet. Perhaps the funniest moment not caught on tape was when my show-runner introduced Randy (sipping on a smoothie) to Dennis. Not the puppeteer, he introduced Randy to Dennis the talking raccoon and they had a little chat."

I have it on good authority that Foye wouldn't do anything more than that lay-up, and that the sparkle that envelopes him at the end was the Smoke Monster's Ivy League-educated ballerina cousin who shall seed with world with even more malice. Anyway, thanks reader. We did, together.

Update: I work hard for this. Column on LeBron and coaches with theory buried in it, I think.
