"Lionel Messi's Copa Del Rey Wondergoal, As Called Around The World"

I enjoyed this video clip (about 6.5 minutes) for two reasons:

Four pieces on "Deflategate"

The case for punishment by Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post, representative of the selectively censorious Left: "Unsportsmanlike Conduct".

The case for what-the-hell-is-all-the-fuss-about by a fine sportwriter whose other work I really like and whose take here I much prefer, Joe Posnanski: "Wake Me When It's Over".

An interesting argument by Mike Florio on a seemingly important detail: "Wells report disregards Anderson’s 'best recollection' on a key piece of evidence". Related: "10 Reasons Why an Appeal Overturns Tom Brady's Suspension".

More: "Lionel Messi sets a new standard in Barcelona's memorable win vs. Bayern".

"One last Q&A with Gregg Popovich"

Unlike so many people, I'm not desperate for people to admire. But if I were, Gregg Popovich would be in contention.

"Winston first, Williams second, and then the draft is wide open"

We'll see.

"Duke still gets F for Mike Pressler’s firing"

It was slow, and very painfully, coming, but at least in this case, justice has prevailed.

"Soon-to-be-70 Walt Frazier still a shining star with New York fans"

Clyde is still the coolest.
