Part seven of our occasional series revisiting the peculiarly joke-like antics of Bob Hope and that year's All-American college football team. This installment finds Hope doing shtick with John Elway, making jokes about Bruce Matthews' butt, and comparing Eric Dickerson to Reagan budget chief David Stockman. So kind of the usual.
The inaugural meeting between Austin and Formula One racing was exactly as strange as expected. But in Austin's strip clubs, at least, it made for three days of lucrative cultural exchange (and boners). Even the Quebecois couldn't ruin it.
In a deeply felt opinion piece for a free newspaper, the bellowing goofus who leads the J-E-T-S chants at Jets games makes a farewell address to his team and his legions of mostly imaginary fans. Also he's not going away, probably.
In our final installment, we look at the winners and losers of player movement, and what can be done to make the process more efficient. Also, we give you our secret for rearing a professional basketball player, because we're friends.
After the worst season in the history of high-level organized basketball, the 2012-2013 Charlotte Bobcats have been able to competently compete in the Eastern Conference. How it happened and whether or not it is sustainable are entirely different questions.
In our penultimate survey on the origins of NBA players, we follow Jimmy Dolan (Kevin Bacon's Jimmy Dolan NOT JD and The Straight Shot's Jimmy Dolan) on a trip abroad, looking at where international players come from, how much they make, and why, for crissakes, are they so darn tall!
In the sixth installment of our ongoing series on Bob Hope's college football "zingers", we enter The Hope Dojo in the year 1983. It's a stacked year that includes future Hall of Famers Reggie White and Steve Young, transcendent athletes like Bo Jackson and a teaser for next week's A VERY ZENDEJAS THANKSGIVING (we're not kidding about that).
