    That Yankee team is scary. Go Sox.

    Shout out to various news outlets who spent their weekend trying to remix their now debunked “out migration” story after getting one of the most epic on the job lessons in “confirmation bias”.

    Tough week for the Census Deniers over at Illinois Policy Institute.

    They seem to be arguing 250K people just magically appeared.

    “Just because the census bureau admitted they undercounted by 250K people doesn’t mean the population increased by 250K.”

    Yeah, well, it does. It really does fellas.

    There was a better one in which I think the IPI guy just said “YALL ARE STATISTICALLY ILLITERATE BECAUSE YOU DON”T SEE HOW WE WERE RIGHT”


  5. - Flyin' Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:16 am:

    Dabrowski is citing Allied Van Lines for his argument against latest census info.

    Because everyone who moves rent moving trucks/vans.

    Sox did great yesterday but you might not know it from the second game announcing team, with their East Coast and Cubs bias. what was a big spot on the Cubs doing in that coverage? guess the sad little east coast biased talkers had to fill while the Sox blanked the Yankees. Go TA7.


  7. - Give Me A Break - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:19 am:

    Dabrowski’s next move will be to lay on the floor and scream everyone is picking on him.


  8. - hisgirlfriday - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:20 am:

    Bummed that Leah Marlene did not win American Idol but Normal sure looked great on the finale last night.


  9. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:21 am:

    Crazy Cardinal win yesterday. Matz got hurt before the end of the first, but Cards still poured on 18 runs in Pittsburgh. Molina was actually brought in to pitch the ninth.


  10. - Arsenal - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:21 am:

    ==Sox did great yesterday but you might not know it from the second game announcing team, with their East Coast and Cubs bias.==

    I usually roll my eyes a little at charges of “East coast bias” in sports broadcasting, but last night was really bad.


  11. - OneMan - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:24 am:

    == I usually roll my eyes a little at charges of “East coast bias” in sports broadcasting, but last night was really bad. ==

    Yeah, you could almost feel the disappointment when the star of the game for Sportscenter wasn’t a Yankee.

    Have to say my feelings about “East Coast Bias” changed when I watched Ken Burns’ Baseball and learned that apparently baseball was only played in New York and Boston until the Dodgers moved west.


  12. - Stones - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:28 am:

    I can’t recall the last time the Sox swept the Yankees in a DH in Yankee Stadium.


  13. - Arsenal - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:29 am:

    ==Yeah, you could almost feel the disappointment when the star of the game for Sportscenter wasn’t a Yankee.==

    And the way they glossed over Donaldson.


  14. - JoanP - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:30 am:

    Speaking of baseball, Roger Angell, one of the best writers on the subject, died on Friday at the age of 101. Lovely obit at the NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/20/sports/roger-angell-dead.html


  15. - 10th ward - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:47 am:

    Justin Thomas comeback in Tulsa was AMAZING! Down 7 shots and wins his second major. Side note he jabbed PGA and Southern Hill for charging $18 for Mich Ultra on the course! Yikes


  16. - Friendly Bob Adams - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 9:54 am:

    Great sweep for the Sox. Totally fun to watch in spite of the underinformed broadcasting crew. Kopech is looking great and the hitting is picking up. The first 25% of the season is done, glad to be above .500 even if just by one game.


  17. - Suburbanon - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 10:04 am:

    Yesterday, the Chicago Greek Heritage parade seemed to have more people in the parade than on the sidelines. Nevertheless, the restaurants and bars on Halsted were packed, so I guess it was a very successful event.

    One older gentleman sat by himself at a small round table outside of one of those establishments, sipping a cup of coffee, and he looked like the happiest man on earth, just watching the world parade by. I envied him.

    It truly was a beautiful Sunday afternoon.


  18. - Huh? - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 11:12 am:

    Back from vacation. Have over 200 emails to get through. Sigh.


  19. - Amalia - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 12:34 pm:

    give Josh Donaldson the google and see a long article from when he was with Toronto. oh my. the guy is a lifelong hardass, competes on everything. granted, his life was not great with prison daddy and daddy beating up mommy, but she sounds like an enabler. Or maybe his behavior to TA is just that Josh went to Auburn and TA is from Tuscaloosa.


  20. - Justin - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 1:52 pm:

    Arsenal missed out on Top 4 and finished below Tottenham again. Next season will hopefully get us Top 4 and a spot above Sp*rs in the table.

    Albert Pujols homering twice in a game he didn’t even start is a callback to the old days.


  21. - Amalia - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 7:11 pm:

    @Justin, oh for a few more wins for the Arsenal. that said, what an amazing YOUNG team. We beat the Tots once and they still have no silverware.
