Big Man Rebounding

Kings are looking to likely draft a big guy, and this chart shows past college players (now NBA) vs. Current potential draft candidates, and their rebounding numbers. According to this (if you only cared about rebounds) Cousins and Zoubek look like strong candidates.

Tastes Like Chicken

Steve Nash is a Baller

The guy busted his eye socket in the series against the Spurs and continued to play, and on sunday night he took a shot in the nose. He moved it back into place and knocked down the free throws, went in for emergency surgery right after the game and will be out there tonight...without a mask!!

That's pretty hardcore...he really wants a ring and it may inspire the rest of the team to lead him to one.

I would love to see the Lakers lose.

Biting the Hand That Feeds you

This is interesting, the city of Los Angeles is threatening to "boycott" Arizona, over the SB 1070 immigration issue. The law that requires aliens to enter the country the way past aliens have done. LEGALLY.

But that's neither here nor there, the interesting thing is that LA buys about 25% of their electricity from...Arizona. Therefore a "boycott" would mean they would stop buying electricity from them too right?

Well, they may not have a choice, now Arizona is threatening to shut off their electricity they supply to the city. Honestly, I would LOVE to see this happen, because boycotting a state in our union is never ok, especially over such a minute thing as essentially enforcing the law that was already a federal law.

Rolling blackouts for LA? We'll see.

Hey Lebron, Would You Mind Getting a Picture of Us?

As much as I like Lebron, I was always turned off by his stupid antics with his teammates. This is pretty funny.


I love it when the Democrats say that Republicans are blocking the Finance Reform, because they have their hand in the pocket of Wall St. When you look at the actual data, they have their hand less in the pocket of wall street than Democrats. Especially in the case of Securities & Investments where Democrats received 61% of the contributions, which coincidentally is the area the reform would hit the hardest. So maybe they are blocking it because it isn't thought out well enough, and there are items inside the bill that would do more harm than good for our financial system.

I seriously wish there was a news source that was unbiased, but there never seems to be one, so people have to rely on themselves to find the actual facts. I found some actual facts for you. Go to and you can find out a lot about government official's monetary interests.

Like the fact that 8 of the Top 10 Richest members (by total net worth) of Congress are actually Democrats, yet the media paints republicans as the "fat cats".

Joe Johnson on Craigslist

Last week Joe Johnson's Atlanta Hawks got DESTROYED by the Magic, in game 3 the ATL crowd was boo-ing their own team.

After that game Joe Johnson, who turned down $16 mill/year to test free agency said, "I don't care if the fans show up to the next game or not."

Not only did the Hawks get killed by an average of more than 25 point/game, but Joe Johnson averaged: 12.7 Points/ 3.75 Ast/ 4.5 Rebounds...while shooting 29%. And he wants $20M a year??

This was one fan's response in an ad on Craigslist:

This Guy REALLY Wanted to Relive his High School Glory Days

You know that guy that can't ever give up living his high school days all over again (mainly because that's as successful as he will ever be)? This guy took it to the extreme...he is a 22 year old who was posing as a sophomore in high school, at Permian High School in Odessa, TX. (That's the school from Friday night lights, maybe he wanted to live out Boobie Miles' dreams).

That' a Good Color On You...

A Perfect Game

Dallas Braden of the Oakland A's pitched a perfect game today...which is very impressive. It means he didn't allow anyone to get on base, didn't allow a hit, or walk anyone in 9 innings. This has only happened 19 times in baseball history.

This is actually another reason I don't like baseball...a perfect game is considered the one in which they don't score. That means the best game you can ever watch, is the most boring one.

My Day in a Nutshell

Today was crazy and the question is about whether a trader accidentally sold 60B shares of S&P 500 E-Mini Futures contracts instead of 60m contracts. There is a possibility that this occurred, then obviously every large cap mutual fund and hedge fund with a stop was triggered to sell, creating the sliding slope and causing the VIX to spike, and creating one of the most insane days hours on the market since the crash of 1987...

Get to the Choppa!!

As Arnold Schwarzenegger says in Predator.

This Helicopter is like the Mercedes Benz of choppers...oh wait it is a Mercedes Benz chopper? This thing is sweet, and definitely a necessity.

Phillies Phanatic

No not that one, this 17 year old thought it'd be awesome to run on the field at the Phillies, until the cop tasered him. Some say it was excessive use of force.

Come on...excessive use of force would have been shooting him with a real gun the taking one of the bats and beating him with it. This idiot made the choice to run on the field. Baseball is slow enough as it is, the last thing I want is some moron running on the field every inning and slowing it down that much more. If I wanted to see people running, I damn sure would not watch a baseball game. I say good for them for tasering him. Maybe it will prevent other d-bags from thinking it's a great idea to run around on the field.

Also, does anyone ever run on the field, out run the security and cops, and then just get right back in the stands like nothing happened? I've never seen that, so when you do this, you know your getting fined or put in jail or...tasered. No sympathy for idiots like this...stop interrupting the game.

Tea with Tyson

That's right it's tea time with Mike Tyson, that same guy that told Lennox Lewis he would "eat his children", and decided he would bite a chunk out of Evander Holyfield's ear. He really is kind and gentle...

Ok nevermind, the dude is still completely insane.

Who Woudln't Want a Candle That Smells Like a Burger Joint?

This is so weird. White Castle is rolling out a White Castle scented candle that has the scent of "steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America's first fast-food hamburger" Whaaat??? Who really thought this was a good idea? At least the money supports Autism Speaks, but I mean how many of these things are they really going to sell?

"To commemorate its 18th annual celebration of National Hamburger Month, White Castle has teamed up with Laura Slatkin, often called the "queen" of home fragrances, to introduce a candle with the steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America's first fast-food hamburger. Packaged in a ceramic holder that reproduces the signature cardboard sleeve of the White Castle Slyder®, the candles are available in select White Castle restaurants and on the website. Candles sell for $10 each, with net proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks. "

Homefield Advantage

Inter Milan beat Barcelona the other night in Barceliona, to move on to the Champions League Final. Inter then proceeded to celebrate, and Barcelona decided they would turn the sprinklers on them. Of course, that just made them that much more excited.
