HAMSTERDAM KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG

208

Well-liked commenter Hawkeye Hodor (née SMKS) has started a Google Doc to compile things that Extremely-well-liked commenter therealCatnuts is wrong about. And as it currently stands, the write-in category of things Catnuts is correct about now leads the "wrong about" category by a count of 7-5. Hilarious.

Sure, Iowa really could go 12-0 (I believe that). They could also go 6-6 if things don't break right (I believe that, too).

Devyn Marble Scouting Report (for those who want something more substantial)

6

I just realized that he'd be a perfect fit for the Bulls in the 2nd round. He can handle the ball decently, shoot decently, create for others decently, defend decently. An all-around PG/SG backup. As a 2nd rounder. Will probably never be great, but in my mind, he's smart enough and works hard enough and has shown consistent improvement enough that he MIGHT be a legitimate starter 5 years down the road for a solid 4-6 years. With that said, Marble is one of the younger seniors in this draft, not turning 22 until September, and there is a very high demand for players who can shoot both from a standstill and coming off of a screen, use their length defensively, and make sound decisions with the ball.

HAMSTERDAM LAMENTS THE END OF A GOOD THING

Like many of you, I have had DirecTV as my "cable" provider for the past several years. And as seems to be the general consensus, I've been pretty dang happy with their service. It's a bit pricey after the intro rate, like all cable carriers, but I have always had stellar service from this company that just seems to be one of the few that really cares about its customers instead of quarterly sales number calls (hi Zappos!) Well, as you may have heard, DirecTV is going to be acquired by AT&T for ~$50B, or in reality closer to ~$65B if you include the debt they're assuming. And it's not looking likely to be stopped by anti-trust laws. So I assume things will be as per usual for a while, but you'll see customer un-friendly tactics start to creep in over time. It's the way these things go, especially when assumed by that most evil of company categories: consumer electronic media delivery.

HAMSTERDAM FOUND BATFFLECK

Zack Snyder teased the new Batmobile earlier this week, and now he's gone a step further with a black & white image of Batffleck. Look at those teeny ears. AAWWWW. As is the norm, thanks to UPROXX for the heads up.
