Aztecs lose to San José State but it’s fine, nothing matters

I imagine San José as something like an Escher drawing of the continuous stairs, only with cookie-cutter business parks, strip malls and endless tract homes. A bubble-inflated hamster wheel of blandness and rewarded mediocrity. It’s the Bay Area, but the real boring part. Look at this bullshit:

A gerrymandered archipelago of carved-out mesas and subdivisions. What are all those little enclaves? Is that where Silicon Valley isolates its service workers, red-lined in unincorporated Santa Clara county?

That’s where the Aztecs went and lost tonight, 76-71 to the Spartans. They played bad. This season is bad. Multiple unrelated exterior events are bad.

None of us want to read too much about this game, so let’s look at some random things about it then put it away.

Valentine Izundu’s night, for example. One for the memory hole.

Amen, AttemptedChem. I also only care about his Steve Fisher’s happiness. He losing isn’t. You do.
