Lil Dicky and the Golden Gophers fall to Nebraska 78-68

lil dicky

Is Lil Dicky coaching for his job? Just an absolute stinker of a loss to start conference play after almost pulling off the impossible and losing a 3 on 5 game vs Alabama. At one point Nebraska was up by 16 points lead by Glynn Watson Jr who scored 20 of his 29 points in the second half.

I have a hour long commute to work everyday and this morning my mind was all over the place thinking of ways I could help the Pitinos and I’ve come to one conclusion. The Pitino’s need to take a page out of another great Italian crime family’s playbook and hire a white guy on their staff ala Tom Hagen.


I want to be that guy. Seems like an ideal job, all you have to do is think of new schemes to pay players/escorts and keep track of where all the bodies are buried. And believe I have ideas.

Papa Pitino can’t be happy seeing Lil Dicky blow a game to that nerd Tim Miles. When Papa Pitino gets his second chance I’ll be there to help him get back to winning. The only thing I’m worried about is where are we going to put all the championship rings once we run out of fingers.

I’ll be sharing my ideas on here to the world in a new series “Saving Pitino,” on how I will be working to restore the once great Pitino family name.


The Bet To End All Bets Has Commenced

Made the bets to end all bets with my remaining bovada balance with the goal of winning and paying off my credit card.

Didnt expect to lose the Michigan/Maryland Over 46.0 bet by one point.

Fuck Quinn Nordin and anyone who loves him for missing that field goal at the end of the first half.

Im officially retired from gambling until I’m out of credit card debt…

Sad Ill have to be frugal for two months to get out of this hole…


How does Maryland not take a timeout at the end of the game to force Michigan to take a field goal?!?!?!

Losers mentality by DJ Durkin not trying to get more points on the scoreboard. Thats why Maryland will remain irrelevant in the Big Ten.


The NBA Store on 5th Avenue is a Disgrace

This past weekend I traveled to visit my sister who is interning in New York City. I’m originally from the midwest and recently moved to Massachusetts after college for work and have never been to NYC before. Naturally, I was excited to see the NBA store on 5th avenue.

With the Connecticut Sun being the closet WNBA franchise to me, it’s damn near impossible to find any WNBA gear in stores locally. I’ve considered ordering online but with the WNBA ignoring their males fans in the past only manufacturing jerseys in women’s size the last thing I wanted was to end up like the guy you see at every game wearing an old ill-fitting jersey.

Upon entering the NBA store on 5th avenue I was disappointed to realize that in an entire three level store the WNBA occupied one panel on a wall in the back corner of top floor of the store.

If you weren’t looking for the WNBA display, you probably were not going to stumble upon it.¬†I’m not asking for elaborate store fronts dedicated to the WNBA but atleast put a logo on the window or products where people could actually find them.

I think this season in particular the WNBA has made great strides advancing the reach of the league with twitter streams and daily fantasy sports to attract new fans but seeing the way the store was designed it highlighted how far the league still has to go. If the NBA actually cares about advancing the WNBA they should reinvest the money their using to run forced advertisements that borderline on cringeworthy praising WNBA players without actually mentioning their names. The WNBA isn’t going to grow because Kyle Lowry thinks the players have “sick handles.” It doesn’t require big ad spends for the NBA to feature one WNBA product in their NYC storefront. SAD!

Luckily, after searching around the whole store I was able to find an Epiphany Prince jersey on sale.

This weekend I’m traveling to Mohegan Sun to see the Connecticut Sun play the Indiana Fever and I’m very hopeful the merchandise selection is a little better and I’m able to find some Jonquel Jones or Jasmine Thomas gear.

Hard out here for a guy trying to find a WNBA jersey.
