ON SPORTS…sorta!

Post Boomer generation needs to wake up and read some logic. We’re the adults now, and so this is the guy that has basically bought Detroit. And Based on just his letters, I think Motown is heading for another post apocalypse. Objectively speaking, all emotion aside, because he doesn’t sound like a very good business man. Actually he sucks at his job. This is what he wrote when Lebron James left Cleveland four years ago.

“Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there.

Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works.

I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE. You can take it to the bank.”

ON MORE THAN ONE HUMAN

ON GREAT DEAD WRITERS

It’s all right.”

ON HIGHER LEARNING

I think I’m going to go back to college or something. get another degree in something that makes me more estranged from society.

ON BREAKFAST
