It looks from here like there'll actually be an NBA season. 66 games. 16 games lost to greed, avarice and selfishness. Millionaires fighting with millionaires over the money that you and I pay at the gate, at the concession stand, and at the sports store for "official" gear. Oh. And the TV revenue - which contributes an enormous share of each team's overall revenue.
I wonder what all the people in the NBA would do if they actually had to get a job and work for a living instead of playing a game. I mean - I know they've managed to take a 'game' and make it 'work' - but dig a ditch? Operate a punch press? Grow a computer network from scratch? Yeah. Right.
Yesterday was "Small Business Saturday". Did you patronize a small business? I hope so. I did.
It's officially Holiday Season now. Button up your overcoat, buttercup. It's gonna get cold out there.
