All's Well That's Dontrelle

Mcsweeney's, although for certain a pretentious hipster comedy outlet, has some hilarious sports-themed lists and pieces, for example:

-Underwhelmingly titled hypothetical sports video games from the early 90s
-Verbatim biographical highlights from the 1987 Topps Baseball Cards Series (highlight: "Moose has a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. He is an amateur magician and a certified locksmith.(413)")
-Baseball knowledge will nothelp you pick up girls
-This is Tim's life (if he played fantasy baseball)
-Shakespeare's baseball plays
-Archaic disease or former football coach?
-Fake Sumerian god from Ghostbusters or hockey player?

I've been watching Astros games in Spanish. It makes watching baseball as exciting as watching soccer on Univision. Home runs are an event, anyway.

Also, Rice University has an awesome radio station that I just discovered. They play whatever the hell they want. It's kind of sweet. You should give it a listen.
