How do you spell “big fat corporate sellout”?

Father Scott

G-E-I-C-O.

According to The Sporting News (ht: TrueHoop), that reported game of H-O-R-S-E that the NBA has lined up during All-Star Weekend will actually be a traditional game of G-E-I-C-O, thanks to some gecko’s sponsorship.

Maybe FA is right about capitalism. This is depressing.

I guess we should be happy, though — given the way corporate sponsorship goes, we probably should have expected a rousing competition of S-H-O-T-F-O-R-S-H-O-T-S-H-O-O-T-O-U-T-B-R-O-U-G-H-T-T-O-Y-O-U-B-Y-R-E-M-I-N-G-T-O-N-A-N-D-J-I-M-B-E-A-M.

  1. Also, I like that at some point along the way you decided that the category basketball should be hyphenated. Does your blog take place in the 1880s?

  2. Yes. Now get back to your butter churn or it’s no player piano for you this evening.
