I don't care about sports or the entities that are involved in it, but apparently Keith Olbermann's show made a Touhou reference, so 5 stars for that.

I'm 99% sure intern hijinks were responsible for 3:06.

I don't follow analog sports, but the Touhou reference was cool.
I like AnalogX sports, but just by Proxy.

55 in white is not, contrary to what Olbermann might claim, Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop.

I was shocked to see people on social media suddenly and momentarily caring about boxing. And then as soon as it happened everyone again stopped caring. What a dumb pile of garbage this whole thing was.
That's because there are very few real boxing fans. If anything there are more Touhou fans in the world.
This debacle makes me feel proud to be a wrestling fan. Hey, at least they're honest about it being a sham and they take the "entertainment" part of sports entertainment seriously. At the end of the night Mayweather only cares about whether he won and how much money he made, he doesn't care if the match was entertaining.

We have Touhou fighting games too, which makes this fight even more outmoded and dull. Hell, even Saltybets makes for more consistent entertainment!
I guess it's kind of like people giving a shit about ice skating or soccer, which happens about every four years for some reason, at least in the US. I remember someone telling me about it some months ago, and I was like "cool! Beat the shit out of some guy who likes to beat the shit out of women." Then I was like "oh wait" when I heard about Pacquiao.
It kinda sucks because boxing overall is pretty cool. Rocky was probably the most successful (though not the best) sports movie series, and Mike Tyson's Punch Out is everybody's favorite NES game, or mine anyway. A few of my friends are into UFC/MMA and I can't get into it: I'm fine seeing fatalities in MKX but actually seeing someone get punched into a bloody submission is too much for me, even though obviously the fighters know what they're getting into and it's not street fighting.
Also what really sucks is people paid something like a 25 dollar cover just to watch it at a bar with a TV. Saturday was a ghost town because everybody was at Buffalo Wild Wings and other sports bars. A whole bunch of daydrunk people pissed off in an establishment can't be a good idea. Hell, I'd be pissed off, and I'm a pacifist.
