Don't get me wrong, I don't like the White Sox, but I love the way Kenny Williams went off on Frank Thomas. I have a feeling that he could make Thomas cry just by looking at him.

My predictions for todays game between the Pistons and the Cavs.

LeBron James misses at least 6 free throws. Poor baby. He was booed because he missed 7 straight free throws in the 4th quarter against the Wizards. He deserved to be booed. I've never seen one person shoot so many fall away free throws. It's no wonder he's building a brick fortress constantly.

Final score: Pistons 96 - Cavs 87. I have a feeling it won't even be as close as the final score would indicate.

I'm getting better but am still sick. As evidence of that, I fell asleep at 5:00 PM today. Now it's 10:30 PM and I'll be awake until 4:00 AM probably. At least I'll get to catch up on some of those infomercials that I've been missing out on.

I don't like being ill. The nightime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever stuff is not good. Even the medicine specifically designed to treat those symptoms isn't working.

Next step, gargling salt water.

Overheard during Quentin Richardson's performance during the 3 point shooting contest:

Reggie Miller: That typifies the Knicks season right there. They're always coming up short.

Charles Barkley: I don't even think midgets are that small.

The Chuckster had a lot of good one liners last night... making this dunk is going to be harder than Dick Cheney getting a new hunting partner.

I wouldn't normally watch women's curling. At least I like to think I wouldn't. Cassie Johnson is worth watching though. She might be the hottest Olympian I've seen so far.

We're like one of those classic famous teams. He's like Mozart, and I'm like Mozart's friend. No, I'm like Butch Cassidy and Michael is like Mozart. You try and hurt Mozart and you are going to get a bullet in your head courtesy of Butch Cassidy.

LeBron gave Delonte West an absolute facial today. It was unbelievable. It reminded me of the Vince Carter dunk in the Olympics where he jumped OVER Frederic Weis' head.

I only watched part of the Olympic opening ceremonies, but I thought they were pretty cool. I liked the skier that was formed by all the people and I thought it was definitely unique to have a Ferrari Forumla 1 car there doing donuts. I liked how they did the torch lighting too. I could've lived without Yoko no speako English Ono though.

I found this in an article about an over-abundance of whale meat in Japan. I especially like the name of the pamphlet...

The Japanese government, which distributes the meat and uses profits to fund research, is working to promote whale meat and secure new distribution channels.

"Is it OK to eat whale meat? Of course it is," reads a pamphlet titled "Delicious Whales" that is distributed by the government-affiliated Japan Whaling Association.

Cartoon is published that accuses Islam of supporting terrorism and violence.

Muslims protest that characterization by calling for or comitting acts of terrorism and violence.


The cartoon was published in an Egyptian paper in October of 2005. There were no problems. There were no complaints. You can verify that here:

Can I interest you in some Savory Spam Crescents? How about Vineyard Spam Salad? Mmmm, mmm. Tasty spam salad.

I don't think those really sound all that appetizing, but GMail keeps suggesting them. Since Google uses targeted ads when you click on your email, it keeps suggesting Spam recipes whenever I click on the spam folder. I think they're sort of missing the point there...

Overheard on PTI today... "A-Rod is so goody-goody! He goes to a Duke game and wears a Duke shirt. The only way he could be more goody-goody is if he was sitting on Peyton Manning's lap."

It's nice to see that Buick has resorted to "quietness on the road" in order to sell their cars. I just saw a commercial that said "The new Buick Lucerne is quieter on the road than the Lexus GS 300, the BMW 325 and the Infiniti G35."

Big whoop. I suspsect that the quietness is due to the fact that it has 9 horsepower and weighs 44,000 pounds. That's a lot of weight able to hold sound deadening equipment.

Today was a good day. I won $120 in poker. I won $125 in Super Bowl squares. When you have no favorite team in the competiton, what could be better?

The best commercial, without a doubt, was the Bud Light Magic Fridge commercial. Hilarious.

Black on black crime. I'm sure by now you've all heard it. Donovan McNabb said that Terrell Owens' statements constitued black on black crime because Owens suggested that the Eagles would be better with Brett Favre. That has to be the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time. Why can't it just be that Owens thinks Favre is a better quarterback? Now apparently players can only be compared to players of the same race. Only black quarterbacks can be better than McNabb. Only white quarterbacks can be better than Favre. Only white wide receivers are allowed to think that Favre is better than McNabb. All black wide receivers must choose a black quarterback to be better than Mcabb or they're not allowed to pick anyone. It's ridiculous and yet his idea is given serious air time.

I'm sure you've all seen the Wendy's commercial "Honey, you look like a million crispy chicken nuggets."

What he really just said was "Honey, you look like $198,000."

That seems like a lot of effort to me. He could've just said "Honey you look fat" and would have accomplished the same thing. She should be pissed that he shorted her by $802,000.
