Criteria: I will forgive any moderate erring in totally good spirit and count any moderate success as undeserved glorious grace bestowed by them
  1. Will Arnet, Arrested Development
    Any mild middling shows or movies are all forgiven, he nailed it. Any success (BoJack) is just a bonus. Eternal respect and admiration
  2. Lil Wayne, Da Drought 3
    One of the best albums ever, double album, free. Finished. Iconic. All mediocre current events are absolved, all good current events count as pros
  3. David Ortiz, 2004, 2007, 2013 rings
    Our fucking city is right. Also, three rings. Also: papi!
  4. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rando, Celtics
    Made me fall in love with basketball. Eternal grace for them on their new teams. (Not Ray Allen! Fuck him for life. There's a right and wrong way to depart.)
  5. Hamburger, food
    If I could never eat hamburgers again I'd feel grateful for the time we spent together. Like an old friend, burgers have been there.
  6. Northwestern University, College
    I went to Tuffs but my first college party (and later) first exciting and reach acceptance was at Northwestern. A lingering affection remains
  7. Boston and Cape Cod, locations
    Hell yeah
