Your Sly Understatement Amuses Us Not, Jon Heyman

From Jon Heyman at SI.com:

The support among other owners for Dodgers co-owner Frank McCourt is at an alltime low, and ultimately his ownership could be doomed, though there's a major question as to whether Jamie would have MLB's support, either. Neither McCourt is believed to have enough money to own the team by themselves, so either is thought to ultimately need to take on a partner and Jamie McCourt is said by sources to have richer friends who could prop her up. THIS SOAP OPERA CARRIES THE POTENTIAL TO DRAG ON A LITTLE WHILE.

(Italics mine.) (Bolding mine.) (All-capsing mine.) Gee, you think? Dodger fans have been living with this divorce nightmare since October of 2009. It's just another daily kick in the 'nads for us. There isn't much exciting about the 2011 Dodgers, yet at least watching this team will take our minds off this ridiculous ownership situation. So thanks for telling us what we already know, Heyman.

Wait, I'm confused. Is that Heyman getting kicked in the 'nads? Or is it us? Or is it McCourt? My sore 'nads and I need clarity.

Do we at least win the $10K prize?

That's an all-purpose 'nad-kick.

Propose re-branding this blog as "Just another daily kick in the 'nads".

Oh Runaways, there was a time I thought you and Young Avengers were going to usher in a new golden age at Marvel. But then Joss Whedon screwed you up and YA vanished off the face of the Earth and now here we are. Kick in the 'nads indeed.

Woo! We won the Thames sweepstakes! Woo!

@Josh S: totally hear you on Runaways (I was thinking that panel was from Runaways as well, but I forget which issue). That series started with such promise...

I also liked the team's HQ being at the La Brea Tar Pits.

is it "all-capsing" or "all-capping"?
