* The Dodgers will simulcast the final six games of the season on over-the-air channel KDOC Ch. 56. The new Dodger channel SportsNetLA has been met with a carriage dispute — the only major cable or satellite carrier offering the channel is Time Warner Cable. Only 30% of LA have been able to watch games that were not carried by ESPN, Fox or Fox Sports 1. So everyone in LA who wants to can watch the final series against the Giants and Rockies can do so.
It makes me wonder: how much is KDOC is paying for these six games, and how much are they charging advertisers for 30-second spots?
* Adrian Peterson issued an apology today. After saying that he didn’t intend to hurt his four-year old son,
But deep in my heart I have always believed I could have been one of those kids that was lost in the streets without the discipline instilled in me by my parents and other relatives. I have always believed that the way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man. I love my son and I will continue to become a better parent and learn from any mistakes I ever make.
So if you parents were racists fucks but you became a success story, then it makes it a-ok for you to be a racist shit yourself? Fuck you Adrian Peterson. Not only did you leave welts and blood and bruises on your FOUR-YEAR OLD son’s legs, butt and lower back, you also got him on the scrotum.
And the Vikings reinstated him today, so fuck the Vikings, too.
* This is quite a happy story about a photograph found on 9/11 and the search for the owner.
* Christy Mack was damn near killed by her apparently needledick ex-boyfriend, an MMA fighter who styled himself as the “War Machine”. Here she is updating her recovery from a couple of days after the attack until last night. As she posted in the caption of this Instagram photo:
2 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and last night. I’ve had several dentist visits to make eating more comfortable and make my smile look more normal. I still have a few more dental visits to go. I’ve had my eyes checked out and made aware that I’m very lucky to have my vision where it is, since the muscle is tethered by the fragments from the blowout fracture in my left eye. My multiple nose fractures will be fixed in the next couple of months. While they’re fairly symmetrical, my nose is shifted on the inside and out causing breathing issues. (I also make everyone feel how my bone sticks out on the left side because it feels so weird.) My top lip will regain movement in less than 6 months… looking forward to using straws again. My liver seems to be alright. I was admitted back to the hospital shortly after I was released the first time for some minor treatment, but I did not have to have surgery. While my face is starting to look decent again from the swelling going down, it is still not my own. Cutting what was left of my hair off, and losing 15 lbs(it’s a lot when you’re 5’1″) made me feel even further away from myself. It’s hard to look in the mirror every day and see someone you do not know. After having makeup done and dressing up for yesterday’s charity event, I felt much better about how I look now. It made me feel more normal, and beautiful for the first time in a very long time. The event that I went to was for Face Forward. A non profit charity that funds surgeries for women and children that have been in horrible situations that require them to have reconstructive surgery. They are not funding me, my surgeries are being donated by other doctors. I met many wonderful people and look forward to working more with them in the future.
