Tomorrow, for many of us, is the start of a wonderful thing called the college football season. While it is in theory just ‘young adults playing a sport for a reduced tuition,’ it is in reality a BIG DEAL. NCAA football has more diehard fans than anyone else, and for that reason, today’s mascot goes in the exact opposite direction. Otherwise there may be some angry all-caps emails in my inbox. Plus, there are other wonderful sports to love.
Today’s mascot stirs up a few different emotions, so tread lightly ahead.
First of all, I want to talk about the difficulties of being the younger sibling. Oh, you’re the spoiled one, oh you’re the favourite. Yeah right. Seth Curry understands what I mean. A great basketball player from Charlotte, NC, he went on to be a starter at the all-star basketball school Duke University before being waived in the draft by the Golden State Warriors. Since then, he has gone between D-League and 10-day NBA contracts. His father played in the NBA, and his older brother currently plays for Golden State. So, sure, Seth is good, but he’s always the Curry who is not as good as his bro, who didn’t get a contract with Golden State, who can almost make it but is not quite there. He’s in the shadow. Sucks, man.
By the way, this guy is jacked:
I am not good with change, as most of you are well aware. (This summarizes my life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYihhSS9kic) And while I get made fun of for it, quite often, actually, I have to say, it is pretty logical. If something is working, why change it? Which is why today is so sad, because two of my partners in crime here at DMG have now moved on to TAX. So to try to brighten this day, we need a very smiley mascot!
In a past post, and anytime you’ve talked to me, I’ve expressed my absolute love for Clutch, of the Houston Rockets. Well, they have a D-league team, and today we will take a look at them.
All of this time I have been writing about numerous types of sports teams, and I never thought of this. And nobody ever suggested that I tap into this level of this league. People, the D League!
