The Joy of Six

Breaking Away, Raging Bull and Bad News Bears are all classics. Three of my favorites, definitely. But what about Victory? You get Pele and prison-break for the price of one. Major League 2 is just terrible.

Chicago Bulls fire coach.

Why is this so shocking? The EC has been a coaching carousel for a while now and as coach you should entertain the possibility that you're going to get fired if you're team is playing horribly. Yeah, it's sort of assholish timing but it's not like Skiles is on the breadline now. He'll get another job, perhaps with a team that has an owner that will set him up for success. I bet Skiles is dancing a jig.

Kevin Garnett Traded to Celtics

Funny post, Ricardo, thanks for giving this detached NBA/Pacer fan a good laugh. Great scenario - I can even see the emotional Ainge grabbing a ball and launching it off the ref's face at like Mach 10, thus presenting his forehead with the same backward Spaulding tattoo that Mario Elie must certainly still be sporting to this day... I agree with Weedy that it was a bold stroke. But to me, this trade is like the egotistical guy down the street who goes out on credit and buys the Monster Truck that he can't afford, only to cruise town while trying to get laid as much as possible before the bank comes and repossesses the goods. It'll be a fun ride, but for how long? If I were a Celtics fan I'd certainly have mixed feelings right now. And the fact that Ainge and McHale are trading with each other is really smelly to me, ref scandal or no. Wierd. Wasn't it a full moon last night?

NBA changes ball despite player gripes

Shaq is the worst shooter in the history of the planet so I'm sure the people at Spaulding are laughing at his griping, who really cares what he thinks? I don't think the new ball could make him any worse of a shooter or ball-handler. And he's had his way his whole career with the refs so to me it's like the universe is finally balancing things out. Karma can be a bitch, Shaq.

T.O. Reportedly Attempted Suicide

This is just the media looking for a story. I'm surprised that Terrell was as coherent as he was at the press conference (actually I thought he was pretty sharp) even on "two or three" of those generic Vicodins... No way he took all of those pills... The only thing that doesn't add up is this Etheridge chick and her conflicting statements... I definitely not a fan of T.O. or a T.O. apologist, but his past prima donna behavior probably led to the media jumping to conclusions on this one...

Serving Larry Bird

I would have tried to honor Robert Parish instead....
