Maybe He'd Be Better Off With Fewer Rodeo Highlights
George Michael: Vid's critics make him feel unsafe in U.S.
I don't see what the problem is. I always found the Sports Machine to be a competent and sometimes thoughtful look at the week in sports. There's something comforting and quaint the way he flips a switch on that 1960s-sci-fi-looking control panel, like the flashing, multicolored buttons actually controlled the replay of the shortstop falling down on the way to first base, or the cowboy who's a little too slow getting a friendly goring from a noble piece of livestock.
Those were simpler times. I'd sigh, but instead I'll echo for emphasis:
Simpler times, my friend.
