Never thought I'd be relieved to hear about a Dallas sportsteam's victory.
And thanks, Mavs.

From The M-OceanView Journal:
One woman in one grand prix go-kart on one racetrack.
She was Driver #6. This is her story.
Lap one: "Check... it... out!"
Interlude: Driver #6 has words for the slow drivers in front of her.
Lap two: "I own this bitch!"
Lap three: "Burnin' fucking rubber, man!"
Lap four: "I'M GON' RACE LIKE I'M GON' FUCK!"
Try and tell 'em any different.
Together, they are The Fearsome Foursome.

I know how he feels.
Now, here's what it looks like when this particular demon is vanquished.

• John Mazza, 1991:

These are the only three times to this date that a 7-10 split has been converted during televised bowling events.
But the next time you see it, you'll know that it can be defeated.

Big Daddy Drew Magary expounds on why European train stations invite American violence and other truths.June 15th, 2010 by C. Rogers
"Big Daddy Drew" Magary dispenses some of the best advice in the world.
His gleefully profane, unerringly right-on-target words of wisdom entertain mightily even as they may possibly "advise." He's right up there in the advice-giving pantheon of greats with Susanna Williams and Fat Wreck Chords' Floyd.
In addition to his monstrously funny NFL writing at Kissing Suzy Kolber, Magary hosts a Reader Mail Funbag over on Deadspin that runs on Tuesday and Thursday. This is where the advising happens. Recurring topics include beer, acceptable courses of action, and poop.
Quite a few of these Funbag letters and their retorts have concerned the heroic scenarios that run through the minds of men at any given time. From last Thursday's Deadspin Funbag, this is one of those letters:
I love all of this so much, but I love that final paragraph's idea so so much that the first time I read it, I laughed 'til there were tears. Tears of joy.
Thank you, Drew. Thank you.
There is so much in this picture to note: the reactions of the bystanders, the expressions of the combatants, the sheer inertia happening and about-to-happen.
Words to go with the image from Deadspin:
Ah, sports. Oh, people.
