The Sports Guys

Yesterday the Sports Guy on Espn.com compiled his list of the best youtube videos ever. How the star wars nerds aren't on there, I'll never no, but there's still great stuff to be seen.

My favorite of the list? The "Whatzupwitu" video, if only because I had completely forgotten it ever happened. Kind of like I've forgotten that I owned Eddie's "Put Your Mouth On Me" album. What, who wrote that? Prank caller, prank caller!

It's funny 'cause it's true

From Thebrushback.com (it's like the Onion for sports):

Reuben Droughns Apologizes To Teammates For Assaulting Wife

CLEVELAND--Running back Reuben Droughns apologized to his Cleveland Browns teammates yesterday for assaulting his wife last month. Droughns promised that it would never happen again and said he was “deeply regretful” about the distraction it caused to the team.
“I just want to say to my teammates and coaches that I’m sorry for assaulting my wife,” said Droughns, who was charged with throwing his wife out the door of their Denver home. “Domestic abuse is a terrible thing because it can cause a lot of distractions for the team. It definitely won’t happen again, no matter how much my wife pisses me off, because I don’t want to get arrested and put the team in the difficult position of having to replace me.”
Droughns has also agreed to appear in a public service announcement in which he educates other football players on the dangers of beating up your wife when you’re the team’s best option at running back.

Greatest clips ever

In honor of Entertainment Weekly's ranking of the greatest internet videos ever, I had to post my favorite from their list. There are at least 5 jokes that make me cry on this thing.

G to the Wizzle

It's random, it's a cartoon, it's rap, it's George Washington, bitch.

Boiler Room

This phone call is pretty entertaining. Poor Josh, he's so on his first day and already freaking out about paying back his $4,000 monthly advance and praying the cops don't find that dead hooker in his apartment.

The World Cup

So I have been thinking about getting into the World Cup this year (which as you all know start Friday). If it is anything like this, it is gonna rock!

The most important issue facing the country

According to Senator David Vitter (R) at least. Here's a very interesting point-by-point audio response by Andrew Sullivan to the President's address regarding the proposed Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, or as I like to call it "The Sorry-about-my-immigration-proposal Make-up Act of 2006"

Kathy Griffin

Just called Ann Coulter a "nutbag" on the Today show. Come on, how can you not like Kathy?

And now let's go to the tape...


Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, a quick theory on that creepy 4-toed statue. They think it's a reference to this poem (be sure to scroll down and read the 'remake' of the poem, it seems particularly relevant. I think they've got a good match and it seems consistent with my theory that exact origins of the statue aren't important and that we'll likely never find out what it's about. I think it's simply meant to show us that the island has a long, strange history that predates the current goings on by hundreds of years. And to keep us talking about the damn show for 3 months.

Golf, Part II

With apologys to the midnight bomber at The Memorial, I think this may actually be a more impressive hole in one.


News from Saturday morning's round at The Memorial. Needless to say, I don't think Jim Nantz mentioned this.

It was an unusual day on the course...Mickelson returned to the sixth hole to find the cup had moved in the middle of the second round. Turns out someone defecated in the hole, and the only solution was to move it a few feet, along with the ball markers on the green. Toronto Sun, June 4

I can only hope the perp walked off the green with "Put me down for a 2."

I think we could all use a little more brown sugar in our lives.

In honor of tonight's Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals - Broadcast live on ABC in HD! You can almost smell the social awkwardness. - it's the heroic spellations of Akshay Buddiga. Down goes Buddiga!

I mean he just pops back up and nails that shite out of the park.
How do you spell "resolve"? Well if you ask me, it's A-k-s-h-a-y.

Good politics

While it's certainly too early to know whether this group has any hope of being an '08 footnote, let alone a force of any kind, it's certainly talking an interesting game.

Unity08 divides issues facing the country into two categories: Crucial Issues – on which America’s future safety and welfare depend; and Important Issues – which, while vital to some, will not, in our judgment, determine the fate or future of the United States.

In our opinion, Crucial Issues include: Global terrorism, our national debt, our dependence on foreign oil, the emergence of India and China as strategic competitors and/or allies, nuclear proliferation, global climate change, the corruption of Washington’s lobbying system, the education of our young, the health care of all, and the disappearance of the American Dream for so many of our people.

By contrast, we consider gun control, abortion and gay marriage important issues, worthy of debate and discussion in a free society, but not issues that should dominate or even crowd our national agenda.

In our opinion – since the disintegration of the Soviet Union – our political system seems to have focused more attention on the “important issues” than the “crucial issues.” One result: The political parties have been built to address the interests of their “base” but have failed to address the realities that impact most Americans.
