Not "calling you out" for being anything in particular but that's a very strange thing to say about a woman whose second job in sports journalism as a 20something was doing an NHL beat in the 90s.

She's older than me, which surprises me, but I stand by it. I have always regarded her as having this affect, and I still do when I see her today.

Athletic has a story too, that I think needed another edit for clarity:

https://theathletic.com/2798560/2021/08/30/how-the-washington-generals-of-high-school-football-conned-espn/

“It’s really sad,” Holtzclaw told The Athletic on Monday. “They have some good kids on their team that just want to play football, want to go to the next level, whatever. But the guys that run it lie and cheat. It’s terrible.”

This might be a thread of its own - keeps getting crazier the more layers that get peeled off.

The youth sports industry has a very seedy underbelly, but while everyone crucifies Bishop Sycamore for being outright fraudulent - maybe we should be thinking about why we even have an IMG and nationally televised high school football. This is a LONG was from Central @ West on homecoming…

One of the headlines on the front page is "Giraffe named after QB Burrow dies after illness".

Not only is that not newsworthy, but I quickly misread it as "Giraffe named starter after QB Burrow dies after illness" and I was like, holy crap I didn't even know Joe Burrow was ill!
