Breaking News! For me at least . . .


Apparently, in 1994, the Dearest Leader (and the Implementer of the Follicular Clampdown) Kim Jong Il, shot a record 34 at the Pyongyang Golf Club. That's 38 under par, and it was his first outing on a course.

This was reported by the club's pro, Park Young Man, who obviously wants to live for many more years. He said Kim had five holes-in-one and is "an excellent golfer."

This is news to me, and I would like to personally congratulate The Dearest Leader, as I've played a round or two of golf myself, and I know how challenging it can be.

I wonder if Kim Jong Il and Charlie Weis ever dined together?

Whitney said...

Tiger Woods needs Kim Jong Il's PR man, if not his short game.

rob said...

that picture's a hall of famer. too bad it's likely photoshopped.

Jerry said...

Everybody here knows about Santa Stumble on Saturday, right?

TJ said...

Something to spice up the Sugar Bowl

TR said...

TBL has mention of our mascot search.

Here's my favorite comment: "I like #2, but I’d prefer if they were fucking. I think they should be the William and Mary Fucking. I’d settle for the William and Mary Fingerbangs."

Dave said...

i love googling "follicular clampdown."

rob said...

dan patrick just made fun of w&m's mascot choices. publicity!

rob said...

from twitter, things i did not know:

@WMMascot: Speaking of Pugs, did you know Swem has largest rare dog book collection in US -11,000 volumes dating back to 1500? http://scrc.swem.wm.edu/

TJ said...

What's "Swem"?

rob said...

i assume it's a pool of some sort.

Marlin said...

It is an outreach center for social misfits named in honor of Earl Gregg Swem. Dont know much about EGS, but based on his name I think he was some sort of royalty and was the Tribe's first defensive coordinator.

zoltan said...

They go up to eleven.

Um, Zoltan, thanks for the link to create tinyurl's. Was there something you wanted to share?

zoltan said...

I suck.

TR said...

Nice details, Marls. You forgot to mentino that his great great great great great great grandson, Forrest Gregg, coached Kenny Anderson, Pete Johnson, Chris Collinsworth and the Bengals to Super Bowl XVI.

TR said...

Thanks for that super-safe work link Z-Man. Way to give notice that the link would lead to a barely dressed porn star with DDx!

zoltan said...

Sorry. I figured that a Fox News link wouldn't be a problem.

TJ said...

It would be a problem for rob...and probably Whit too.

TJ said...

If I'm Jaleel White's agent, I'm making sure my client is on the short list for every Tiger movie already in the making...and you know there are at least three productions already in the works.

TR said...

I bet Vivid Video is scouring its roster of dudes to find a Tiger impostor. Lexington Steele may have a new gig soon.

rob said...

jaleel!

Marlin said...

Looks like G:TB's failure to finish the Cauc Hop is not the only thing weighing on Pete Nice's mind . . .

Mark said...

Who knew Pete Nice was such a baseball junkie? And so fucking boring too?

And, I've heard that there is indeed a Tiger based porn in the making. The role of Elin will be highly sought after, I'm sure.

If you don't have Tiger fatigue, you may enjoy these articles:

In my opinion, I think the agent is doing a poor job and I agree with Dave Kirvin's recs.

And, I don't know how to do that tiny

Shlara said...

I meant to say, "I don't know how to do the tiny URL thing" but then I realized that Zoltan posted that link today!

zoltan said...

Today on Z-Man and the Teej - how to turn long URL's into tiny URL's, and an in-depth interview with Jaleel White.

TJ said...

That's the show Jerry...

That's. The. Show.

Mark said...

UConn-Kentucky tonight at 9:30. Kemba Walker/Jerome Dyson v. John Wall/Eric Bledsoe. Should be fun.

Marlin said...

Z-Man and the Teej is sounding more and more like All Things Considered.

zoltan said...

Tah-Tah-Tootie, go get Jaleel White for next week's show and some carpet cleaner that works on bourobn.

TR said...

Should we buy Marls some Billy Bob teeth and a fake stache to complete the Baby Booey transformation? Or does the phrase "try and Oates it up" suffice?

Shlara said...

Wolf is Tweeting at the Wiz game tomorrow night, in case you're interested.


Blitzer, a Wizard's season ticket holder for the last 10 years, will be sending along tweets to the NBA Twitter feed from his seat throughout the game for the league's more than 1.65 million followers. The NBA Twitter account can be found at twitter.com/nba, Wolf's at twitter.com/WolfBlitzerCNN.

Mark said...

Just noticed Rob's comment about Dan Patrick making fun of W&M's mascot choices. That's a lot of nerve out of somebody who went to Dayton.

TJ said...

Mark, how much does Chuck Strong to the 'Ville hurt your boys in the Sugar Bowl?

TJ said...

Montell Jordan was 6'8"? How did I not know this?

Mark said...

He played college ball. At Pepperdine I believe.

Charlie's absence will hurt, for sure. Not as much as some programs though. Dan McCarney was the asst. Def. Co. and is probably going to be promoted to Charlie's spot in the offseason. He's a former Head Coach and a very good DC so I don't expect it to have a dramatic effect. Recruiting though, that's where some of my most immediate concerns lie.

Mark said...

Evidently, Charlie's coaching the D in the Sugar Bowl. Nice.

TJ said...

Strong was the Anthony Grant to Meyer's Billy D?

TJ said...

Scottie Reynolds on the Jess Settles extended stay program...

Mark said...

Billy D was and is just fine. As I've stated before. I love this year's edition of Gator basketball. Not as skilled, but athletic, tough and versatile. It's nice to see them pressing (effectively) again. I do think Syracuse wins tomorrow night though.

And Charlie Strong is awesome and will always be a Gator. He's the lone holdover from the Zook Era. This speaks volumes for Meyer's respect for him as a coach, as Meyer pretty much tried to change the entire system and culture when he took over yet retained Strong. And this was, I believe, was Strong's 5th time as a member of the Gator coaching staff. I wore my Polo buttoned up all the way to the top today in Charlie's honor.

TJ said...

That Cuse/Gators game is gonna be fun...

Vitale might have a coronary before tip of this UK/UConn game.

TJ said...

The Walker/Dyson backcourt is top 3 in the country...perhaps even tops.

TJ said...

And just for the heck of it...

LaRon Landry just got beat on another double move...

Mark said...

Really? A timeout at 4-0?

TJ said...

This is my first glimpse of the (highly paid) young Kentucky team...if I didn't dislike Cal so much these kids would be fun to root for.

Mark said...

Vitale is right. Bledsoe is underrated. Florida thought they were gonna get him but Calipari swooped in.

Mark said...

Besides my natural disdain for UK, I completely agree. Wall's a freak, Patterson the best low post guy in college and Bledsoe, Cousins, Orton and the rest are all studs too. Ridiculous.

TJ said...

Calhoun pulled Dyson after that initial steal...tough love indeed.

TJ said...

Jesus Christ!

Mark said...

Wall's youtube clips look like a fucking video game.

TJ said...

Calhoun is gonna fucking kill one of his players.

TJ said...

So for the last three years Cal has had as a PG Rose, Evans and now Wall?

Mark said...

I like the response.

Mark said...

At this point, if you're a one and done guard, why wouldn't you go with Calipari?

TJ said...

Sloppy yet entertaining game so far...how many pros you think we have in this one?

TJ said...

Is Edwards a whitey? Or is he jeter-y?

Geoff said...

The only way this game could be more entertaining is if a boozed up Whitney drunkenly wandered on to the court.

Mark said...

He's Jetery. As for NBA guys, I'd say somewhere between 7-10.

TJ said...

Mark, enjoy your Bucs' second win vs the Kellen Clemens-led Jets this weekend.

rob said...

fact: uconn beat william & mary and harvard by a combined 15 points. i have no idea what that portends.

TJ said...

Fact: the Chargers have not lost a game in December since 2005.

Geoff said...

Fact: its harder to get into Kings Dominion than it is Kentucky.

Mark said...

UConn can't shoot for shit. They may lose a few games that have no business losing this year (I'm looking at you St. John's and Seton Hall).

TJ said...

The Johnnies got a win over Georgia tonight I believe.

TJ said...

Who's the Lions 3rd string QB (back-up this week)? Because there is no way Culpepper lasts the whole game against the Ravens.

rob said...

dickie v with william and mary love! tony shaver's a ptper!

rob said...

w&m is not, repeat, not cupcake city, per dickie v.

TR said...

I rewound my live TV feed twice after I thought I heard Dickie V talk Tribe. I would've never guessed he knew who Tony Shaver was.

Banner week for us.

TJ said...

I think Patterson could palm a 10 lb turkey.

Whitney said...

Harvard beat BC tonight by 7. Can't hurt our SOS.

Mark said...

This game is a little sloppy but its damn fun to watch.

Marlin said...

Sorry Z-Man, Jaleel can't come on the show. In stead, I lined up the Family Matters Dad/Sgt. Al Powell, and I got you a bottle of Billy Mays' Kaboom.

TR said...

Billy Mays' problem was that he snorted a little too much powder and his heart went kaboom.

Too soon?

TJ said...

Never too soon in my dojo sir.

Whitney said...

I heard that about Billy Mays for the first time this weekend. I guess his ticker was already bad and using narcotics that constrict blood vessels didn't help it.

TR said...

Billy Mays & Tiger Woods: wealthy celebrities who used deviant means to come to terms with their squeaky clean public images.

They should've partied together. They could've lined up Mays' coke on Tiger's strippers. Everybody wins. Except Billy Mays and his bad ticker, I guess.

mayhugh said...

I'm of the opinion we need another Die Hard movie just to get Reginald Vel Johnson some more work. They couldn't have given him a cameo in the last one? Who would have had a problem with that? No one, I say.

I have to imagine that Mr. Vel Johnson does not have to work much thanks to Family Matters. That crap was on forever will be played in syndication even longer.

Trying to put together a Z-Man and the Teej show featuring washed up stars of the small screen. Richard Greico is in, but Peter Deluise's people have not called me back. I am also looking to get the guy who played Dudley on Diff'rnt Strokes sot that the Teej can discuss getting molested by Arthur Carlson/The Maytag Man.
