It would slip away for a little Bode Miller here and some ice dancers in aboriginal costumes there. It would cut back for a few minutes of action, then head off for quality time on the bobsled run with the German gold medalists.
I thought this article over at NYT about NBC’s decision to show a bunch of taped Olympic events during prime time on NBC instead of the live USA vs. Canada hockey game - which aired on MSNBC - was kind of funny.

Astounding. Even more so is the fact that one of my coworkers eats a double fish filet on the reg. For those keeping score at home, that’s two fish filet patties on one sandy. I had to get that off my chest.
Gucci is hilarious. This song is pretty awesome. Beat by Bangladesh.
According to Urban Dictionary, lemonade can either be weed, being a pussy, a fun/crazy chick, liquid hydrocodone or an excuse for kids to make some extra money. Gucci pretty much covers all of these bases here. Slang is so damn cool.
dunk: –verb (used with object) 1. to dip (a doughnut, cake, etc.) into coffee, milk, or the like, before eating. 2. to submerge in a liquid: She dunked the curtains in the dye. 3. Basketball. to attempt to thrust (a ball) through the basket using a dunk shot.
As eluded to yesterday, I’ve started a blog strictly dedicated to the best slam dunks of yesterday and today. The slam dunk is oftentimes referred to as the most exciting and momentous play in sports and is bar none the most artful and pure display of athleticism in the entire universe (was that dramatic enough?). Being continually amazed by the uniqueness of each slam dunk I see, the goal of ridunkulous is to spread some of that same amazement and love to you, dear internet surfer.
“After the United States acquired Alaska from Russia in 1867, Friday, October 6, was immediately followed by Friday, October 18, adjusting to the adoption of the 1582 Gregorian calendar changes by the British colonies in 1752, and the shifting of the International Date Line.”—Friday
This entire interview is pretty bizarre, had me WTFing every other line:
PLAYBOY: You were addicted to Jessica Simpson?
MAYER: Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm.
PLAYBOY: But before you dated her you thought of yourself as the kind of guy who would never date Jessica Simpson.
MAYER: That’s correct. There are people in the world who have the power to change our values. Have you ever been with a girl who made you want to quit the rest of your life? Did you ever say, “I want to quit my life and just fuckin’ snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to fuck you, I would start selling all my shit just to keep fucking you.”
PLAYBOY: So at this point—
MAYER: Pardon me for interrupting. I love Jen so much that I’m now thinking about how bad I would feel if she read this and was like, “Why are you putting me in an article where you’re talking about someone else? I don’t want to be in your lineage of kiss-and-tells.”
PLAYBOY: At this point, what’s your ideal relationship?
MAYER: Here’s what I really want to do at 32: fuck a girl and then, as she’s sleeping in bed, make breakfast for her. So she’s like, “What? You gave me five vaginal orgasms last night, and you’re making me a spinach omelet? You are the shit!” So she says, “I love this guy.” I say, “I love this girl loving me.” And then we have a problem. Because that entails instant relationship. I’m already playing house. And when I lose interest she’s going to say, “Why would you do that if you didn’t want to stick with me?”
PLAYBOY: Why do you do it?
MAYER: Because I want to show her I’m not like every other guy. Because I hate other men. When I’m fucking you, I’m trying to fuck every man who’s ever fucked you, but in his ass, so you’ll say “No one’s ever done that to me in bed.”
PLAYBOY: Do you do something different in bed than other guys?
MAYER: It’s all about geometry. I’m sort of a scientist; it’s about being obtuse with an angle. It’s sort of this weird up-and-over thing. You gotta think “up and over.”
PLAYBOY: Maybe that’s easier at your height.
And then there was the part where he talked about seeing 300 vaginas before he gets out of bed some mornings, and the racist stuff. Weird dude.
See for yourself at Playboy and watch the “I’m finished trying to be clever” apology video here. Don’t stop being clever, John; “sexual napalm” has some potential.
Chicago will have about $11 million available, and needs to move Kirk Hinrich or John Salmons to be able to make a run at Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh this summer. A deal sending Hinrich to the Lakers for the expiring contracts of Adam Morrison, Jordan Farmar and Josh Powell has been rumored for much of the season.
