commented on Jason Collins Got a Standing Ovation Last Night
It stopped being a big deal about three seconds after he stepped on the floor in LA over a week ago (and he received a fair amount of applause). In fact, it was so little of a deal, this here website didn't even mention it (or, if it did, it was buried in a link roundup).
This was his first home game since signing with the Nets, after playing road games in Portland, Denver and Milwaukee (and LA). Naturally, he's going to receive more applause in front of a home crowd seeing him for the first time. That doesn't make it a big deal.

@11 Well, we can't hold the shitty parents who don't take an interest in their child's education accountable, so we focus on the one person who we can hold accountable. It's not fair for a teacher to to catch shit for the failures at home, but hey, there's no metric for shitty parenting, right?

Even if I know it's actually the bank calling, I'll hang up and call back. Never, ever, give any information over the phone when someone calls you, no matter who they claim to be, or what the Caller ID says.
