About Randy Haspel's "Rant" on playing Memphis music at Grizzlies games ...

FedExForum and the Memphis Grizzlies are widely recognized as having the best, most innovative in-game music in the entire league. Nathan Black and Justin Baker do an amazing job as arena DJs. This year alone in the playoffs, Memphis music legends the Bar-Kays and Sam Moore from Sam & Dave have sung the National Anthem.

Also, "We Will Rock You" is never played at Grizzlies games.

About Jackson Baker's post, "Brown Contempt Case Remanded Back to Juvenile Court" ...

So [Brown] hires the Wharton kids to represent him. This knucklehead is so transparent you could read The Commercial Appeal through him — if you wanted to.

Is any of this real?

About Toby Sells' story on slow trash pickup, "Trash Pile-up" ...

Whatcha wanna bet the "city" plan has trucks going back and forth across the city picking up politically connected neighborhoods first, while the union plan was to go street by street using the shortest possible route?

Just guessing, given the obvious sniping.


I have never understood the complaints that I read (always in comments sections) about Memphis trash collection. I've lived in four different Midtown neighborhoods and have never had a problem with it. I now own a home and am even more aware of the condition of my neighborhood. So if there were yard waste piling up, I would notice. I guess I've just been very lucky.


About Kevin Lipe's post, "Late Night Notes, Game 7: Thunder 120, Grizzlies 109" ...

I love Zach Randolph, and I wish I could have been in that hotel room after the game, telling him "it's not your fault." I can understand his reaction against Adams, the biggest goon in the NBA. For the league to suspend him for the 7th game was as criminal as suspending Calathes for using Rogaine! As it turned out, there is a limit to how much even the Grizzlies can take and still triumph. But with all its highs and lows, it was a fantastic season.

NBA sucks, not even a real sport, MLB and NFL are real sports. NBA is more in line with pro wrestling — not as fake but not a 100 percent true sport anymore. Would not spend a dime on the so-called game.

Totally enjoyed the ride. The games this year were incredible as was the atmosphere at FedExForum. This team has definitely made Memphis proud.

About Jackson Baker's post, "Stacey Campfield's Train Ride to Ignominy" ...

Maybe if this idiot visited a concentration camp or read any of the history surrounding the forced encampment and mass murder of Jews during World War II his asshole would open up just enough for his head to make its exit.


Gee, I didn't realize that providing health care to people who desperately need it is the same as sending 6 million Jews to the gas chambers. Thanks for the warning, you morally repugnant ignoramus!


Poor Stace. He just don't know no better. Too bad Obamacare didn't exist when his mama dropped him on his head.
