G.O.A.T. of the Month

Pop.

W.O.A.T. of the Month

That would have to be Adam Kramer, who so kindly explained how lines are set to ~22K people, but doesn't seem to quite get it, or really have any interest in getting it.

Tweets of the Month



The Rest

Pregame's carnival barkers are jumping ship at an impressive rate. Randall is handling it as you'd expect.

John Oliver on net neutrality.

Ruben Amaro got confused.

W.O.A.T. of the Fortnight

Norman Chad, for his #hot #take on the Phil Ivey "controversy". So pathetic.

Tweets of the Fortnight

Goodell's Twitter chat went well. In related news, #nicedrugpolicyASSHOLE.

The Rest

Apparently, one-way media props have a bit of vig?

The Astros are selling PROCESS shirts.

Thought the Rolling Stone piece on the Sports Guy was a bit odd. Seems like the writer hates Simmons/sports/Twitter but can't really come out and say that?

One of the funniest forum posts you will ever read.

#teamPAGEVIEWS.


Fuck the NCAA Tweet of the Month

A solid month of analysis -- as always -- from Dave.
