Other Sports Catch-All

National Championship. 8 pm Saturday. Go Cards, Beat Texas!

In the most subjective of subjective sports the Olympia bodybuilding competition was this week. Finals for Mr. Olympia open class tonight.

The 212lb class round was last night and Shaun Clarida won. That dude is a walking battery of muscle. Just insane.

Eh I guess 2nd place it is. Hell of a season Cards.

Congrats Texas

there was a different, and I would argue, far more prestigious natty decided this weekend.

2023 is getting off to an absolutely garbage start.

Ken Block died.

If you are at all into motorsports/alternative sports in the U.S. (I dunno about overseas), you probably know who he is, or have seen his videos.

f*ckin' hell, dude.

Man that's horrible. Hate that for the family and Hoonigan. He seemed like a good dude, good family guy, good driver, and a marketing genius in his area.

Dana White is... well, he's him. But it's some insane timing that Power Slap, his slap fighting league, debuts on TBS next Wednesday.

Hey, it could be worse.

You could be a pathetic middle-aged adolescent getting drunk in clubs and striking the mother of your children and BE POOR.

It's interesting, in a really sad and frustrating and hopeless way, to note that almost every man who commits sex crimes and/or intimate partner violence can be found saying (and probably believing) these exact sorts of things. "Rape is the ultimate crime and should be punishable by death," "No mercy for any man who puts his hands on a woman," etc. I've found that I can (as a gross generalization) pretty accurately project which men I want to warn every woman I know about based on the boilerplate language they use to condemn men's violence against women. It's entirely received wisdom, not something they've ever contemplated in a serious fashion. How do these heinous acts happen? What must be broken in a man to commit them? What stories does he tell himself to justify them? These are not questions that interest the Dana Whites of our world. They simply remember that raping (meaning, specifically and solely, a weird guy in a hoodie jumping out of a bush with a chloroform rag) and domestic abusing (meaning, specifically and solely, a guy coming home drunk and hitting his wife because dinner was cold) are Bad Things that are unforgivable, because that's what they were told.

If you asked Dana White, in that moment (or in any of the other moments he has definitely assaulted his wife), how he squared what he had just done with what he professed to believe about "putting hands on a woman," and he were flustered enough to answer honestly, he would say "Yeah but she was being a total Female Doggo so this isn't like that! This is different!" In his heart of hearts, he doesn't think he did a Domestic Violence because that's something that only poors wearing undershirts and living in trailer parks do, and because that's a Bad Evil Thing and he is not a Bad Evil Guy.

We can't get anywhere in this society, we can't fix anything, because our institutions and major cultural organs only know how to talk about things as if they were cartoons. So you end up with a majority of the population acting like bulls who are genuinely unaware that they are the reason all the china in the shop keeps breaking. It must be some other bull, because I would never do a Bad Evil Thing.

I feel like I need to post about this. The first time the USA has won a game at the handball world championship. However, the team ended up loosing badly the next two games (by 18 and 19 points), but it doesn't matter because they ended upmaking it to the second round.

Wrong thread apparently. Silly tabs
