Intellectual credibility is valuable.


Sometimes Gawker is really great.


Campaigns know how to target voters precisely. They just don't have enough to target them with.


In case your celebrity obsession is unbound by the constraints of lifespans.

538 gives the Knicks a perhaps-optimistic zero-percent chance of winning the championship.

I mean, I knew the Knicks could win *one* game in a season.

UPDATE 12:02 am

The Knicks are .500. They've been .500 25 times since 1946. Here's how every season has gone from Game One.

UPDATE 12:03 am

(.500 after two games. They've been undefeated 23 times and winless 20 times.)

Guthrie perfect through 0.67.

No one that moves from New York City to San Francisco should be praised.

Not now, Knicks.

No-game-tomorrow baseball is the best baseball.

According to tradition, the 7th inning stretch in a Series game seven is a Taft impersonator grumbling about the gold standard for 2 minutes.

So the goal is for Kansas City to score a run next inning and then another one tomorrow morning at 11.

That was maybe the most exciting thing I've seen in this game since Gibson's homer.

Never forget that Bumgarner gave up a triple in the bottom of ninth. Legacy tarnished forever.

"Probably won't see that again." "Especially not in this day and age." Yeah, Bumgarner could never have done that these days.

Anyway, let's end this season on the proper note: At least it wasn't the Yankees.
