For Hornsby, it was a chance to play one-on-one against the best basketball...– “Allen Iverson and Bruce Hornsby: 1993” (via) Requisite “Bon Iverson” sighting bait? (via bmichael) If he “stayed in shape by playing hoops on the road,” did he employ the “Piano Hands” rule then, too? Or was that used only when he was matched up against a future NBA All-star? SACK UP, HORNSBY....

wentdog: joshsternberg: Hansen, who has two young sons, was caught in an undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer. What a great sentence. Hi, I’m Chris Hansen and I’m…oh shit. This is the greatest thing ever. While there is no room in my world for kiddie touchers, I found some of the things they did on that show reprehensible.

If so please help. It’s a pic of a teenage me that somehow wound up on some German guy’s FB page and I really want a copy.
Possible names for our yet-to-be-conceived son
Wifey says I get to pick if we ever have male progeny so I’m working up a list. 1. Rifleman I always liked Hunter but it’s too common now. 2. Geronimo Cause that’s just bad-ass 3. Adolf No one, and I mean no one, will have the same name as him. Come to think of it, I probably shouldn’t have let her have veto power.
I want a Hovercoaster
You know, the coaster that levitates and keeps your drink within arms length of you as you walk around. Preferably the model that also keeps your drink cold. They make those, right?
Well done, New York
I understand that New York State is fairly conservative but screw them. New York City is the engine powering this machine and the Idea that Gay marriage was illegal here, in NYC, in the 21st Century is frankly ridiculous.
Forgot to mention
I treasure a compact disc RLB gave me shortly before passing away. It was a recording of him reciting poetry in that dulcet baritone of his. It’s sort of awful but incredibly heartfelt and genuine.
How have I never heard of this movie before? Directed by Mark Rydell, who went on to direct “The Rose” and “On Golden Pond”. The man who directed eight actors to Oscar nominations and earned one himself. Starring an over-the-hill John Wayne, Colleen Dewhurst, who not only was an amazing actor but is also the mother of colleague and all-around great guy Campell Scott,...

thethirdshift: winstonwolfe: When you are the most wanted fugitive in the U.S, how exactly do you hide from Federal Marshals & the FBI for 16 years? You have this much cash in your apartment.(1) Plus, safety deposit boxes allegedly fillled with another million dollars, twenty to thirty guns, as well as ample backup ammo. Read the whole thing. Given Bulger’s background, the recent arrest...
Circle of Iron
Circle of Iron is an absolutely awful film, and a real pleasure to watch. The more you know about Zen philosophy, particularly when taught as part of the martial arts, the more you’ll get out of this one. Even lacking any expertise in the area, however, one finds plenty of laughs here. The big reveal of the film’s lesson is one of the funniest moments ever put on film. It’s that cheesy. As a...
Inspired both by the random way that Eddie Deezen popped up in my mind and our recent viewing of Clash of the Titans I decided to share thoughts on some awful movies with you. Awful in that they are so bad that they are actually fun to watch. They can be any budget level, any era. Just as long as they are memorably crappy.

I can’t decide which is his defining role: Menlo in “Surf 2” or Herbie in “1941”? And what a tragedy, to peak so early.
That’s right, Mark effing Messier. For some reason the Captain just crossed my mind. What a man. Number eleven and Steve McQueen are the only guys I can think of who out-clooneyed Clooney.
Tiki Barber on "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbell"
You remember that guy, the perpetually smug one? The fellow who was full of false and forced bonhomie? The handsome, smart, incredibly talented jock who was such a superficial douche that you wanted to see humiliate himself on camera? Tiki’s got you covered.

I love that the whole artisanal trend has people working hard to make their products better. Really, I do. That does not mean, however, that they need to reinvent the wheel. I don’t need lavender flavored ice cream, nor olive oil flavored, either. You can keep your ginger, wasabi, avocado, balsamic fig, bacon, chocolate chipotle, horchata, strawberry jalapeno, pear, persimmon and all the...
