PHILADELPHIA (BASN): You know how Back in The Day radio stations would play the top 100 (or so) songs from the previous year? Well, there were so many disharmonious chords struck that 1000 songs couldn’t properly encapsulate the melody of misery that was played across the continent in 2011…

 

Because the siren’s song played by self-styled “elitists” “job creators” and other Dick Dastardly muthafuckas was Muzak to the collective soul of a nation. Fiercely locked in a class struggle; fueled in large part by self-entitlement, arrogance, and…eugenics.

 

The sports world saw no less an amount of siege upon it by these forces of Eeeeeeee – VAL! (as Earth, Wind & Fire says it); and with the twain of sports and politics crossing streams as it often does, I see an opportunity to hit maximum targets…with minimum collateral damage.

 

Aside from the mighty pens wielded by the BASN Army, we at Pad Nation have decided it is time for us to deploy another one of our many weapons of crass destruction…because a lot of this bullshit will cease in 2012 if we have anything to say about it!

 

Fire in the hole…
