Dedicated to the premise that life would be better if we all took ourselves a little less seriously.
the fuck? the fuck???
To try to get information, I typed "what's the deal with" into google. The 3 top autofill options:the harlem shakeglutennorth korea
Dennis Rodman can assist you with all three topics.
With Kidd's retirement, it seems Juwan Howard is the last guy from the 1994 draft left in the league (according to NBA-philes on the tweeter).
you the man, you the man
Tennis seeding bothers me too, especially 1-3 in the semis. No idea why it's so goofy.
1 vs 123 vs 94 vs 322 vs 6Damn you tennis, you metric bastards.

Jerry...found this:the thing with the seedings in grand slams is that 1st and 2nd seeds have fixed positions in the draw, ie. 1st seed at the very top and 2nd seed at the very bottom.the other seeds from 3-32 are randomly drawn.this is how the seedings are drawn into the draw:all unseeded players are drawn first into the 96 unseeded places in the 128-field draw.seeds 17-32 are randomly drawn into the 3rd round brackets, so that means any player (whether seeded or unseeded) does not meet a seeded player until the 3rd round.seeds 9-16 are randomly drawn into the 4th round bracketsseeds 5-8 are randomly drawn into the QF round bracketsseeds 3-4 are drawn into the SF round bracketsso, with seeds 3 and 4, whichever is drawn first out of the hat or machine that is used for the draw will play against the 1st seed, eg. if 3rd seed is drawn first, he/she plays the 1st seed, and then the 4th seed will play the 2nd seed.and vice versa if 4th seed is drawn first instead of the 3rd seed.for every grand slam every year, it is randomly drawn, although i agree with u that sometimes it is very coincidental that u have the same seedings being paired together.eg. wimbledon 2007, 2008- mens SF have been 1 vs 3, 2 vs 4eg. us open 2007, 2008- mens SF have been 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3but, it does change, eg. aus open 2008- mens SF were 1 vs 3, 2 vs 4BUT... aus open 2009- mens SF were 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3hope this helped, sorry if it was a bit long, but that is how the seedings work.
And here I thought the explanation of NFL playoff tiebreakers was long and convoluted...
Well, I guess that explains it. I feel like more people should be mad about it though.
Jerry, Roger Federer kinda sorta agrees with you:Roger Federer has come out cautiously on the side of his former fellow Swiss star Marc Rosset, admitting that a Grand Slam with 32 seeds can often be a bit lacking in excitement during the early rounds of play. The second seed at the French Open said that he had never been a proponent of the system, adopted around a decade ago, which was designed to keep elite seeds from facing each other too early in the fortnight-long event.
what problem was that seeding design intended to solve? the same players matching up at the same point in the draw every major? this seems to be massive overengineering. i blame the germans.
It's all Tommy Haas' fault.
i am outraged. there's one more for ya.
floyd mayweather has just under 6M down on tonight's game....taking miami -7BING BONG!
what a fucking idiot
or is he the smartest man on earth?
probably somewhere in between
As I figured they might in a GTB comment, they did.
Interesting piece for you music geeks out there. The NYT had a piece online with Andrew Bird talking about his process for composing. And there are some interesting audio clips as the song evolves.http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/31/untamed-melody/
I think I read somewhere that Nadal has never been a 1 seed at he French Open. Best clay player ever. So tennis's seeding system isn't perfect.
Never mind, he was the 1 seed twice.
i definitely read that somewhere. might've been your comment above, tho.
who do the gheorghies want to win this NBA game tonight?
bronbron. we're pretty tight.
didn't you interview him once rob?what's floyd going to do with his 6Million? retire? invest in T-bills? move to THE VILLAGES?
My Aunt and Uncle live in the Villages...its pretty much golf, wife swapping and early to bed 365 days a year.
Flo Rida's manager got bitch-slapped last night at the Heat game???To the internet GIF machine...
RIP Deacon Jones.
i too have an aunt & uncle there. (come to think of it, if you are alive, it is likely you have an aunt & uncle that live there) maybe they do some swapping with your aunt & uncle. would that mean we're related?
Yes, We are kin now. Can you watch my kids this weekend?
Retirement Frat is going to be awesome.
is Retirement Frat going to be Cactus League, or Grapefruit League?or, perhaps, Pacific Northwest-based? Colorado-based?
RIP Deacon Jones
I'm afraid of Deacon Jones.
Just ask Deacon Jones to pray for you Z. That tune was one we learned off the John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat album 'Hooker & Heat'. We figured we'd take a crack at it when we got to the studio to see if we could conjure up an acceptable version. I think we did.
We'll have to see which parts of the country are still inhabitable at that point. We've got some time to think about it though.
Deacon Jones rhyming about Miller Lite posted above...
The Villages: highest STD rate of any city in Florida. That's really impressive work.
