The Day — Curren$y ft. Mos Def & Jay Electronica
To be sure, there are a lot of things you could do today, but watching some Sun Classic softball (broadcasting LIVE from the ESPN Wide World of Sports) is the thing you should do.
BONUS: tune in at 1:00 EST and peep my piece on this young lady who made an incredible return from a battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia to ascend to Player of the Year in the state of Virginia.
Of all the injuries accrued from my most recent brush with death, this airbag burn is so far winning the magical regenerative rally (Disney is magical, and so is Neosporin). A game my coworkers have rather enjoyed in the last week is deciding what, or who, it looks like.
So far the answers have ranged from an alien, to Christine O’Donnell (so, alien-witch), Slimer from Ghostbusters (? I can’t see that either), and any variety of lucha libre masks. It’s a bit of a rhetorical question, but can you guys do better than that?
Checked my inbox before getting out of bed this morning to find this photo, promptly opened my iTunes and played “Shadow of Deth”
What a white hot way to start the day
couldn’t reblog this fast enough
In case you missed it: Derrick Rose is the Creature from the Bull Lagoon.

NBA OFF-SEASON PREVIEW: INDIANA PACERS
“Bartender, pour me another”
BLOGHEADS: We give you our final team preview – saving not the best, but the most painfully entertaining, for last. To celebrate that fact, KC & I decided that if we were to write a season preview on the Indiana Pacers, we must, of course, do so while intoxicated. And if we expected any of you to actually read this, you must likewise be on our level.
So since we’re now prepared to drink, let’s make a game of it! Settle in for a long’un. Ladies and gents, without further adieu … our Indiana Pacers Drinking Game.
The rules are simple: grab a bottle or two (honestly? you may need more than two) of your favorite drink. Whenever any of the following is mentioned in this article …
This should make my Halloween weekend extra-extra saucy.
NBA OFF-SEASON PREVIEW: CHICAGO BULLS
“The best offense is a good defense.”
The above quote, which I’m sure none of you have heard used before, was perhaps the go-to mantra for my coach throughout my brief stint in YMCA pee-wee basketball (3rd – 5th grade, what’s up now?!). Egregious clichés and unnecessary authorial nostalgia aside … this phrase proves incredibly applicable regarding the fledgling Thibodeau-era Bulls, for reasons both intelligible and nebulous – but all of which should resurrect *some* of that 1990s Windy City basketball pride.
(tuuuurn, and face the strange)
Quoting Bowie in a Bulls preview … check.
NBA Off-Season Presents:
Requiem For A Mock Turtleneck
- Stan Van Gundy
- Don Nelson
- PJ Carlesimo
- George Karl
- Gregg Popovich
- Nate McMillan
- Kevin McHale
- Lenny Wilkens
- Rick Adelman
- special appearance by Phil Jackson (yes, he too braved the mock turtleneck, haters)
In a league filled with ties and button-ups, these men chose to rebel and coach in comfort rather than to uphold the sartorial needs of one Mr. David Stern. This season, there is a new dress code for coaches and sadly, it is time we bid farewell to our old friend, the mock turtleneck.
We salute you brave coaches! Godspeed, you black mock turtleneck!
