I think that all NBA games from now on should start with 4 minutes of layup drills by each team that count towards that teams score. Maybe, just maybe, then we will see both teams score above 80 points. Oh what a sight that would be.

I just saw pictures of the Nissan Fuga from the Tokyo Motor Show, and I have to say that I like it. The front isn't as rounded as the G35, so I like the side profile better. The back of it almost reminds me of the next generation Mustang.

It's fantasy basketball time. If I thought we could get 10 participants, I would start a league, but I don't, so I won't.
Question: Is it possible for a trilogy to be considered great if one of its members is extremely weak? Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom SUCKS. It does. There's no denying it. It seems that the Indiana Jones series as a whole though is considered to be great. I admit that Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Last Crusade are quite good, but Temple of Doom is more like Temple of Crap.

The reason I'm asking this is because the DVD set has been released and I am debating the purchase. Should I just wait until they come out individually? Should I never buy them because they are on USA 10 times a year? Questions, questions.

I rode the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world yesterday. 120 MPH is just an estimate, as they had a radar gun there and I saw readouts as high as 127 MPH. I actually got to ride it twice, because on the first launch we didn't make it over the 420 foot hill, so they pulled us back into the statioin and launched again. The acceleration.... 0 to 120 something in less than 4 seconds is CRAZY. INSANE. I almost bit my tongue off. It was worth the trip though.

Why exactly do Pudge and Urbina kiss after the game? Are they re-enacting the last time Al and Dave were together?
I was completely shocked last night when my phone went off with an ESPN upset alert and I saw that West Virginia had beaten Virginia Tech 28-7. If Purdue can get it done this weekend in Ann Arbor, they will almost certainly move up to #7 in the BCS (and possibly #6.)

I ordered my arcade stick today. I'm going to wait for a while before I either buy this cabinet, or build my own.

If you think that the Miami Fish Machine is going to win, I suggest you stop smoking the ragga-dagga. Shmeorge Leinbrenner cannot allow that to happen.

Boo to you Shmeorge. I say to thee boo.

On a plus note for Bean-town though... they got rid of Fattoine Walker. Too bad for them they got me in return - a tall white guy who likes to shoot three's and who cannot rebound. Hooray.

That was about as close to being a strike as I am to being a Trillionaire.

To Mr. Johnny Damon,

Mr. Damon, I would like to request that you please cut your hair. You have a mop on your skull.


Your hat.
Hey. Who's that out in right field? Oh. It's Karim Garcia. Do you know what he was traded for? It was nothing. And I don't mean a player to be named later, or some scrub minor leaguer. I mean nothing. Nada. Zero.

I generally despise the Red Sox and especially Pedro, but today, they are the lesser of two evils, so for one day at least you may consider me a member of the Red Sox Nation.

One question though... what the freak is up with that stupid "Cowboy Up" saying? When did they get cowboys in Boston? Who on their team is a cowboy? I fail to understand.

I don't know what's worse... the Cubs giving up 8 runs in the 8th, or the fact that astronomers aren't finding asteroids that practically hit the Earth until they have already passed.

Top 5 reasons why I need 6 bathrooms:

5. I like to leave surprises for Lisa.
4. Liam is a dirty dirty little boy.
3. Ryan "Crap Pants" Dowd
2. Every time I watch a Red Sox game I feel very ill.
1. For me to poop on!

Ed Hillel. "Objective" Yankees fan.

That had to be just about the funniest thing I've seen in weeks.

With the high rate of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Minneapolis City Council has established a "Women Only" parking lot at the Mall of America.

Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for patrons. Below is the first picture available of this world-first women-only parking lot in Minnesota.

Some high school kid kicked a 62 yarder. Oh by the way, it was an EXTRA POINT! His longest field goal is only 27 yards. Apparently the thought of those 2 additional points makes him incapable as a kicker. The article is on ESPN here.

This might just be the best thing ever.

I am thirsty. I believe I will get something to drink. And then I will go to bed, but not sleep. I will watch the Red Sox - Athletics game for a while longer, even though I don't care one iota who wins. Then I will fall asleep, and wake up late for work. I predict I will be 30 minutes late to work in the morning. All because I am thirsty.

It appears that I have finalized my plan for the spare room, and it includes a MAME arcade cabinet. When complete, it should be able to play upwards of 400 different games, and of course it will be 4 player. I haven't decided on whether I want a coin box or not though.
