I thought about making this a FanPost but decided against it. This is fascinating to me; what do others think about it? I'm mostly fascinated by the word choice and what it says about Stern's jovial facade, but I'm sure others also might want to comment on the potential lockout and the inevitable delay in Rubio's arrival. The second-best quote in the article (after the one in the title) is what Billy Hunter said to Stern at some point this year: "I don’t know where you were raised, but I lived with rats. I used to kill rats. We had a .22 rifle and we would lay in the kitchen and shoot them on the floor. One thing my grandmother taught me was that if you got a rat trapped, you’ve got to give his ass a way out, because he will fight you if he has to. If you don’t give us a way out, a chance for a compromise, you’re going to get a fight."
