Ponies playing basketball? In a professional league? On Draft Day Slam Dunk sees his dreams being crushed right in front of him, and he ends up saddled on the laughingstock of the league–The Los Andaluses Kickers. Gritting his teeth against a perceived injustice, he will try to do everything he can to show Equestria he doesn't belong on a team that dwells in the basement year after year.

Not even kidding. I'm working on it right now. And you all thought I was down and out, didn't you? Look for it soon.

Hey everyone, hope y'all had a fantastic Christmas, and for all those who celebrate it, Happy Boxing Day! Would've posted yesterday, but I was discovering how many shots of Jack it took to get Christmas carols out of my head. The answer was a lot.

Anyone care to explain a few things to me? This has been bugging me for the longest time. Why in the fuck is Pete Rose still banned for life from Cooperstown? He's the all-time leading hitter, all-time leading run scorer, won 3 World Series, 3 batting titles, 1 MVP, 2 Golden Gloves, Rookie of the Year in 1963 and a 17 time All Star at five different positions. Did he bet on baseball while in a position to influence the outcome of the game? Yes. Yes, he did. BUT...
He bet on his own team.
His own team.
WHY THE FUCK ISN'T PETE ROSE IN THE HALL OF FAME?! Just put a note in his exhibit: 'Bet on baseball. (Big fucking deal).' Charles Barkley had much more severe problems as an individual, and we all fucking love Barkley. (Side note: I'm a huge Chuck fan, it's just... the man bled gravy and had a gambling problem bigger than the MGM Grand.) If Pete Rose had done a bunch of shady things while managing the Reds and betting on them, then I could get behind him not being in there. It would be insane to even think about it.
But, once again...
He bet on his own team.
I dunno guys. Also, yes, Kobe breached 30,000 points. No, he is not among the best 5 players of all time. It's not even a discussion. (The Top Five, in descending order: T5: Bird/Magic (in some order), 3: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, 2: Bill Russell, 1: Michael Jordan. That's it, until we see someone like those players emerge again. Protip: We won't.)
For the college students amongst my limited readership, I hope your finals are going well. For everyone else, it's holiday season. Hope everyone is having fun and managing not to kill themselves because of goddamn Christmas carols in all the stores.

I actually wrote some stuff for 'The League' and for 'Giants' today. If finals aren't as ball-crushingly difficult as I think they will be, I should have new chapters up for both of those by next Saturday.

Three things: Finals, Dystopian Wars, and perhaps most importantly, muthafucking Backyard Baseball.
