Kevin Durant said he was sorry this week after he was party to two double technicals and got himself ejected in a playoff loss to the Clippers … not sorry that he did it or how it hurt his team or offended anybody watching, just sorry, for himself, I guess, that he revealed his true self publicly.
If he was honest, he’d say, “I’m an asshole. Deal with it.” Or, “Hey, sponsors, don’t dump me,” as if they ever would.
I’m not offended. Anybody who cares about the Dubs knows he’s gone after this season. Great player, run-of-the-mill dickhead. He apologized to the ballboys and statisticians and all the rest of the little people but most especially to his “fan base.”
His “fan base”? That, I’m offended by.
Golf announcers talk about the “hole location,” which we infer to mean the place on the green where the greenskeepers cut the hole and place the pin in relation to the rest of the green and the hazards and topography around it. These days, we don’t hear them say “hole” without “location” tacked on, ever.
LPGA shooters are taking aim starting today at hole locations at Ko Olina, Oahu, in the LOTTE Championship. Their fan bases (is that the proper plural?) should take note that it started Wednesday, not Thursday, which means it ends Saturday, leaving Sunday to the men and their hole locations.
