LOTTERY PARTY UPDATE
Possibly out of guilt for charging money for the lottery party for the first time ever, this year is going to be the dumbest one yet. The couple Pablo Torre will be marrying has been voted on - it's Lauren and Zeke! congrats!!! - and we've got Shirley Temple-flavored Rita's Water Ice in the works for you as well. What a sentence. And obviously you've seen our playoff logo at the top of this email, which will certainly be on a t-shirt before long. The whole lottery party timeline is here. Be sure to pace yourselves, it's going to be *a lot*. If you want to buy any of our four lottery party shirts, they'll be available until 5/16.
More surprises will be announced in the next week or so, but until then, occupy your time with this Process Pups page from our pawls (sorry) at Big Barker Dog Beds.
SIXERS-CELTICS PREVIEW POD
As promised for no reason, the Ricky Kids have done a pod after every Sixers game in the playoffs. When Milwaukee finally keeled over and died, making Boston their 2nd round destiny, the Nemanja Dangubic Draft Rights got on the horn and did it again. The Sixers-Celtics matchup pod is a little punchy (Mike had cocktails, Spike was asleep), but somehow, basketball is discussed, the group of Boston girls who made Spike feel bad are threatened, and the Morris twins are insulted.

Bonus article from behind enemy lines at The Athletic: Boston on how much of a challenge it will be for very short Al Horford and very posterable Aron Baynes to cover mobile landmass with touch, Joel Embiid.
Keep winning. No excuses.
