"Computer Blue" is the best imaginary basketball play call ever.

You guys want some grapes?

Bitches.

zman said...

I miss Chappelle's Show.

Igor said...

Zman, required reading if you haven't read or heard this...

TR said...

James Farrior has missed 8 games in his 14 year career, and has missed 2 games over the last 8 years. He and Ray Lewis must use the same anti-aging doctor located in a nondescript Florida strip mall.

zman said...

Sweet. Was Prince on your list of the top-20 dewschiest musicians?

TR said...

Kevin Smith did a speaking tour at colleges that was filmed into a documentary. He does a hilarious bit on Prince, who apparently loved Dogma and wanted to work with Smith on a project. Smith skewered him, including saying that Prince is so tiny he shops in the boys' section for clothes. No idea if it's true, but it makes me laugh.

Squeaky said...

TR must not like links provided by Igor.

Prince is a tiny person. My wife's sister runs a homeopathic store in Minn. Prince shops there. Small guy. And he is very weird.

zman said...

So Prince is s homeopathic?

mayhugh said...

Shoot the J. SHOOT IT.

Would someone please entertain me? It's a busy evening at the cracker factory.

T.J. said...

I'm donkeyrapingshiteater hammered...

You entertain me.

zman said...

We picked the wrong field Mayhuge. Getting paid by the volume of work you do is not a good fit for my slacker mentality.

mayhugh said...

Yes, if I calculated my hourly rate I would burst into tears.

Igor said...

Yes, Zman, Prince made my list.

And yes, Squeaker, I embedded a link and TR still didn't bother!

TR said...

I don't surf into uncharted territory on my work PC. My company's headquarters is in Alabama and they have things on lock-down.

And, generally speaking, I ignore Igor.

IGNORE!!!

Squeaky said...

Ok, which one of you were in Florida with your kids?

Igor said...

As if, TR!

En route to the islands with the work crew. Ordered a beer before the first flight. Igor should be in full effect by the time we touch down in our destination.

Igor said...

People, anyone who has been to Nassau (not the one on Long Island), please offer suggestions of what to do there. Besides drink. I am a newbie.

I know there's a sportsbook there. Mark, Dan et al, any can't miss picks of the next few days, I'd be grateful...

What would you all guess (Deadspin editor in chief) AJ Dalaurio makes a year? (If you've already read the GQ story where this detail is shared, then you know.

T.J. said...

The Bissinger about-face is extremely interesting...

T.J. said...

And it bums me out to no end to see what he makes.

Geoff said...

In what sense? I thought it'd be a ton more...assuming you did as well.

T.J. said...

Oh, I assumed he made more, yes...I just meant bummed out in the "wish i got paid anything to do what he does" way.

Geoff said...

Yeah, his job is more fun than mine...though it doesn't sound like he's enjoying it much.

T.J. said...

Lots of interesting tidbits in that article...

zman said...

I went to the GQ site for the Deadspin guy's salary and found out that W&M got an honorable mention for douchitude.

T.J. said...

Shocking. Or not at all.

Police in Los Angeles have arrested Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley for allegedly making threats against a woman, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

Geoff said...

We're way douchier than some of those schools ahead of us.

Geoff said...

This is groundbreakingly awesome. President Johnson calling the headquarters of Haggar and very specifically, graphically, anatomically ordering pants.

That LBJ tape made my day. Entirely worth listening to.
