And it's like… yeah. Yes. That accurately describes reality as I see it. And they need her - not the other way around. Marshawn Lynch developed a potent science for managing this shit, playing just enough of thir stupid game to get by. The people running this tournament have succeeded only in ensuring a poorer, less competitive event. As for the press, this cadre's purpose is either to rebroadcast what she said, or interpret it with minimal charity. We haven't required this service for a minute now. They can go fuck the devil in hell.
If you want to interview me though, playing golf by myself, I'll be available from 2pm PDT to 4 on our own channel until next week when all of my golf friends get back. Last time, Ryan "The Hartmaniac" Hartman whisked me away about halfway through to play Knockout City and it's entirely possible he'll do it again. The only difference between the sports really is that the ball in Knockout City is larger than the golf one, and the hole is not in the ground but is instead your opponent's filthy mouth.
