Shoddy Game Recap: ‘Tecs open hoops season with a win

Kabeer Thirty did not staff tonight’s men’s basketball opener out of deference to DEMOCRACY (I.E.: getting drunk while watching election returns.) But let the record show that the Aztecs started their 2018-19 campaign by besting Arkansas-Pine Bluff 76-60.

Devin Watson scored 20. Jalen McDaniels had 15 points, 9 boards and 5 assists in just 27 minutes.

Also, a banner of note was unveiled.

We’ll have better hoops coverage as the season progresses when the future of Mission Valley/our freaking Republic is not at stake, promise.

In the meantime, read Zeigs.

The most nerve-wracking SDSU football games of 2018, ranked

TD

Two years ago I spent most of the final drive of the Cal game lying face down on the floor of my brother-in-law’s living room in Texas, trying hard not to emanate any scream or exultation or stream of expletives that might stir — or permanently scar — my niece and nephew sleeping nearby.

Last year, I spent the final three minutes of the Stanford game gripping the railing of the STADIUM Press Level so tightly I’m surprised the decaying aluminum didn’t snap off in my hand.

College football wants us all dead, and it’s coming for us once again.

With the San Diego State season less than a month away, I’ve done the crucial task of ranking the 2018 regular season games based on how stressful I expect them to be.

Cold beer, new faces and hella baskets: an exhibition basketball Tweetcap

The San Diego State men’s basketball team kicked off the Brian Dutcher era on Thursday night with a 98-79 win over UC San Diego. Yes, yes, I know: “Kicked off” is a stupid and embarrassing expression to use when writing about hoops, but you know what? I’m not changing it.

IT’S THE PRESEASON FOR BLOGGERS TOO. I’m here to learn from my mistakes and get better, folks.

Tonight’s game wasn’t on TV (not even the TV they have on computers these days) and I didn’t attend the contest because LOL I’m not paying $15 parking for a stupid exhibition game. So I didn’t see it. Lemonverbena had other plans, as well, and VocalMinoritySDSU lives in the Yukon Territory or somesuch. Fortunately, Attempted Chem was on the scene at State to drink beer, eat greasy Mexican food that will definitely not give him the runs and provide this handy Tweetcap for the first non-super secret fake game of the Dutcher era!

Opening a time capsule of rage from one year ago

What were you doing one year ago this week? I was not blogging about the Aztecs football, I can tell you that much. In fact, I was trying my best to not think about the Aztecs at all.

You probably know why.

In case you’ve purged it from your memory as a defense mechanism, on September 19, 2015, this happened. Here are some game highlights to remind you of how our overtime loss to South Alabama went down:
