Games of all Sorts: Our Instagram / Twitter Favs of the Week

What’s not a sport these days? Our visual attention this week ranged from pro basketball and hockey, to the New York primary, to the games of campaign finance and (even more) royal watching. And let’s not forget the cars.







Is it possible this photo (and Curry and the Warriors breaking the epic, single season win record of Jordan and the “old Bulls”) exploits a demographic split? If this is Instagram cool, it’s also like playoff candy (and a *win record bandaid*) for the boomer set. (Yes, btw, the pic of MJ is 10 yrs before the record. But it’s also more relatable now to Steph.) #Repost @washpostphoto ・・・ Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls is guarded by Jeff Malone of the Washington Bullets in Chicago on January 1, 1985.
