A Great Way to End the Year

The Kings said good riddance to a terrible 2010 (except for Tyreke winning Rookie of the Year), with this great buzzer beater. In the words of Shaquille O'neal: "One lucky shot, deserves another." Maybe it will be the start to a better 2011.

Here's Something You Don't See Everyday

This was pretty awesome...last nights game the Packers tried a squib kick to end the half and 313 Pound O-Lineman Dan Connolly returns it to the 4 yard line. This actually ended up being the difference in the game.

Uh-Oh

Jim Rome has been using the 'uh-oh' part of this clip on his show for a few months now, and it reminded me to use post it.

This is by far the worst rendition of the national anthem, by one of Americas greatest sports stars...embarrassing:


Oregon Helmets

Oregon has always been my favorite college football team and their helmets last week were out of control. The best helmets I have ever seen. I hope they wear these ones when they beat the Auburn Cheaters Tigers for the National Championship in Glendale, AZ in a few weeks. GO DUCKS!!

Here are the helmets:

Jay Pharoah's Got Talent

Even though this season of SNL has sucked so far, there is one new member of the cast that stands out. Jay Pharoah. His impressions are hilarious. Here he is on Letterman. He's pretty funny, and the impressions are spot on:

This Was a Sign from A Cleveland Sports Bar

Probably a good call.

Lebron Will "Continue With His Greatness"

Lebron told Craig Sager, "I'm just gonna continue the greatness for myself." (at the 1:15ish mark)

Then went on to say he, "doesn't want to apologize" for the way it ended in Cleveland.

LeBron's Return

HE'S BAAACK....Cavs fans have had this matchup circled and highlighted with big arrows poiting to it, ever since he made a public spectacle out of taking his talents to South Beach.

Time to rock n' roll , I'm excited to see the fans reactions, and whether LeBron will be able to rise above it. Something inside of me wants to see this arrogant A-hole have a terrible game. BUT if he went off for 50, 15, and 15 that would be telling as well.

Mike Hucakbee on Unemployment Benefits

Is there any problem with this? Making people work for their unemployment, instead of being able to sit at home and collect? Novel concept. (it shouldn't be)

Huckabee, who served for 10 1/2 years as Arkansas' governor, suggested that if Congress passes unemployment extensions this week the rules should include measures similar to what is occurring in the United Kingdom under its coalition government.
"You show up every Monday morning at 8 o'clock," he said. "You will either pick up trash or you will tutor in a school ... you will do something from 8 in the morning until four or five that afternoon like everyone else who is getting a check."

Russell Westbrook - "Dunkin on Errbody Out Here"

Russell Westbrook is one of the young stars of the NBA...He doesn't get much love in OKC, but 2 nights in a row, he's decided to dunk on great defenders - That should get you some love. 1st Shane Battier then the next night Emeka Okafor. Well done Westbrook.

John Wall...Dougie Rookie of the Year??

I know he will get Mrs. Awesome's vote. Why? Because he teaches them how to Dougie. This was John Wall's first home introduction of his career and people won't forget it. (at least until the one hit wonder song is forgotten).

Not only did he dance, but he tore up the court too. we went for 29 points/ 14 assists/ and 9 steals!!

Kings v. Raptors in Pictures

In case you missed the Kings game last night (which I recorded) because the Giants were to busy winning the World Series. Here is a quick recap from Garbage Time All Stars.


Great Quote

My brother had this, so I stole it from him:

“Public business, my son, must always be done by somebody. It will be done by somebody or another. If wise men decline it, others will not; if honest men refuse it, others will not.” - John Adams

Is Obama Keynesian

More from the Comedy Central rally.

These people all answer the questions right...if the question was "Is Obama Kenyan"

However, the question is, "Is Obama Keynesian" (As in the Macroeconomic theory that believes active monetary policy response in necessary to stabilize a business cycle).

This Is Amazing

Must watch whether you lean right or left...it's a testament to our direction of our society.

This clip of the Jon Stewart/ Stephen Colbert Rally is very interesting. Most really don't understand why they are there, and what they are supporting...it's just classic. The point is to mock the bi-partisanship of government, but yet the polarity is extraordinary. It's a sad testament to people in their 20's...I'm mean they admit they get their news from Jon Stewart...they are freaking comedians people!!

Fantastic Giants Article

This is great article about SF and the Giants.

"You know what? To all the people who hate “bandwagon” fans? Let it go. Who cares. You know who you are? You’re the guy who liked the Kings of Leon and then got mad when everyone else did. You’re the guy who said “this band is SO good”, and then when someone said, “hey I agree” you said NO YOU DON’T ONLY I CAN LIKE THEM. That’s silly. Knock it off. Let them in. Buy them a beer, or a kombucha. Whatever it is. I don’t care. Just let this happen and stop Eeyoring the crap out of our unlimited happiness we’re on the brink of."

Brian Wilson: NY Times Article

This is a great article about B. Wilson.

In every appearance his approach was the same: focused rage, directed at the guy in the batter’s box. “I don’t have time to be angry away from the field,” he said. “So I brush it off, bottle it up, and drink a tall glass of it before taking the mound.”


“I’d like to be a crossword clue one day,” he said. “I want to be in The New York Times’s Sunday edition. Right now, the clue ‘Giants great’ is always Mel Ott. I want my clue to be down, not across. The down ones are usually harder. And when I’m the clue, I’ll fill it in — just that one — and frame it.

How a Political Ad Should Be...

This is how a political ad should be. It should be a look into their life, their thoughts and their background, and most of all inspiring.

It should not be this mud slinging against each other, or a play on people's fears and emotions. No more of the "Meg Whitman sat on Goldman Sachs board, was CEO of Ebay, etc, etc." (To which I say, good, she had real jobs...she's not a career politician).

It's nice to see a real campaign ad. I might just write him in for my senator, even though he's running in Florida, and I'm in California.

One of the Best Nike Commercials Ever.

This is good...as much as I disagree with how LeBron went...this commercial has a great point...be you...not who others want you to be:

Decoded by JayZ - Out in November

The book by Jay Z "Decoded" comes out November 16th.

It doesn't sound like an autobiography, but more of a compilation of inspirations, stories, etc. Here's what he says about the book:

"When you're famous and say you're writing a book, people assume that it's an autobiography--I was born here, raised there, suffered this, loved that, lost it all, got it back, the end. But that's not what this is. I've never been a linear thinker, which is something you can see in my rhymes. They follow the jumpy logic of poetry and emotion, not the straight line of careful prose. My book is like that, too."
