Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. The Fighting Pandas

 

Perhaps the NBA could mend fences with China by renaming the Houston Rockets “The Fighting Pandas.” An NBA sponsored “Send a Uighur to Camp” scholarship fund might help mollify the Chinese government. Some lucky fan in Houston could win an all expenses paid trip to China for a kidney transplant, or any other organ they might need.

The marketing possibilities are endless.

    Would the “Fighting Panders” be more appropriate?

    I dunno. They seem to be fighting their fans pretty hard to support their pander.

    Doug Watt: Some lucky fan in Houston could win an all expenses paid trip to China for a kidney transplant, or any other organ they might need.

    Question, indefinite pronoun edition:

    Is “they” the modern singular “they” referring to the “lucky fan in Houston” or the traditional usage, in which case “they” refers to the people of China and the “lucky fan in Houston” becomes the organ donor?

    Or is it intended to be vague to lure the “woke” readers (who use the modern singular “they”) into believing they will be organ recipients when in fact they are to become the organ donors?

    Why am I thinking this might not be limited to halftime?

    The Fighting Pandas?

    How about something more pro-Trump and pro-Chinese like …

    The Fighting Wall-builders.

    And if the Chinese censors for some reason decided not to show their games, you could reasonably ask “Oh Bothers, where art Thou?”
