Chiming in from AK: There's also a "fine line between sexy and sexist." More on Tap below. For now lets focus on the recent Melo-Karl Flareup. Just got word up here (via sled dog team) that No-Guts captain and former Beauvallon resident Carmelo Anthony (#15) refused to leave the game on Sunday when politely asked by team coach George Karl. I'd like to use this situation to extend an analogy and provide a little perspective for readers of KTH: ADSB. After years of playing roundball in pickup games and competitive men's leagues from Evergreen Rec to Madison to Kodiak, AK I have made one observation. During league play I have encountered many dudes who play and act like their local men's league is their capital L "League" and often embarrass themselves and their less than attractive girlfriends/wives in the process. Now, stay with me here, if many dudes believe that men's leagues are analogous to Mr. Stern's Association then similar rules apply, right? So for instance if, during the second half of a close men's league game, I refuse to sub out because I feel that my defense and penetration on the offensive end are necessary for a win what's the big deal? Perhaps Melo thought that his abilities where needed to ensure a win in Hoosiertown. Who's to say that any one person on the team (coach, player, vice president of player personnel) has a better plan than the other members of the team. I say the Melo-Karl Flareup is just a story for the Denver press to feed on until something better to comes along. Thoughts?
Now, about the Tap. It seems that the blokes formerly known as the Thamesmen are planning a reunion tour sans wigs. Clear out your calendar for April 29th when ST plays the Paramount. I will be expecting pics posted here on KTH.
