I'm still mad at Jerry Colangelo for not vetting Sarver better! He transitioned us to this POS.
Have you seen what Jerry is up to lately?
Yes, that too.

Wonder if/when Devin Booker is going to say anything about the Sarver situation?

He will have to on Monday. Or at least say, "No comment."

When I emailed and called to cancel my season tickets and get a refund, I am getting the "bear with us" message. I wonder if things are working behind the scenes now, or they are just bullshitting everyone.

They are fine with cancelling them, but I have already paid for this year. It is the refund they are balking at, obviously. And saying things like "bear with us and you might not want to cancel soon" but are using 500 words to say that, so it isn't clear.

Old white dudes love ***. Makes them feel young or some shit.
I'd prefer to keep political stuff over in the Politics section as much as possible.

Interesting. Maybe some things are happening behind the scenes.
