You think theatre can't get any more culturally irrelevant?

What's the Stanley Cup?

I think it's the nascar prize.

I think that point is... that was a no-brainer once. Mike Tyson. Evander Holyfield, etc. If you didn't know, you were specifically NOT into this out of a sense of principle. Now, it's not news. We just don't know.

Hockey was huge once. Now, it doesn't even have consistent national TV coverage. That's not because theatre-fans are somehow still those kids who hated football because jocks are mean or something. That's because even a national sport with city teams and millions in its coffers can lose the public interest.

It's just, you know, a reminder.
