Still laughing at this article.

You might be asking yourself, “What makes these shoes so damn special?” I’m glad you asked. For one, they’re rare AF. AF means “as fuck” in case you don’t know. Do you know how rare rare AF is? They are so limited that they created a raffle JUST so you could get an opportunity to spend $2,000 on these shoes. Yes, you read that right.

Ha, that article was great.

And yeah, would never ever ever want to job shame anyone; was a little concerned about that when writing, but I figured if the angle was more of a joke, like, "Just don't ticket this one guy", then it might fly.

Super well argued -- you've very much convinced me.

Whenever I hoop with someone like that -- even if they aren't good -- it is always a very "Oh, you are different and better than stubby me and actually meant to play a cool sport like this" moment.

Well articulated, and I love this plan. Also: Murray vs. Wagner is the stuff basketball dreams are made of. I just want everybody to have a good time.

Honestly, I was a little bit surprised. Been writing for GIA/BHGP for a good chunk of time now, and my absolute favorite thing about this community is the great culture in the comments. It is literally the opposite of the rest of the Internet and definitely what keeps me coming back (because it's not the football). I know these issues can be divisive, and it's certainly OK to disagree, but I've always had the impression we were generally all on the same page. Granted, the topic of talk is usually shitty third down calls and not insurrection or police shootings.
