Watch Live: The Washington Ideas Forum 2014

The Nirvana That Is NBA League Pass

As I've said before, the biggest loss in not having a television--by far--is the loss of live sports. I pretty much stopped following the NBA circa 2008 after cutting the cord. I still read the papers and kept up, but I didn't really watch much basketball. If there's been a paucity of basketball blogging here over the years, it's not because I don't like the game, it's because I haven't really had the means to watch.

But I subscribed to League Pass this weekend, and picked the perfect time to do it. I actually hadn't seen Kevin Love play until this weekend. I had seen Kevin Durant, but it was really good to see him go unconscious yesterday along with Russell Westbrook. My wife (who's a fan herself) groaned last night after the OKC game, "There literally is basketball every night."

Yes, dear. Yes there is.

Long story short. Expect more basketball blogging.
