Did you see Lebron's halfcourt shot on 60 Minutes?

Remember collecting baseball cards and memorabilia? That was a cool ass hobby. I still have a shit ton of stuff that I've been slowly checking out, thinking of selling/keeping and just enjoying it. Weird shit too, like remember those Starting Lineup action figures. I have 4 of the 1986 Mets with the gray away jerseys, just dope. I also have one of Ozzie Smiff and Barry Larkin cause I played shortstop so I sort of loved those two guys. The 1985 Mike Gallego error card? I have it. McGwire's 1984 Olympic card. Official. I have it. SI covers. Got those two. Like this one or how about this one? Classic shit man. I'm only 29 and I already appreciate my childhood sports memories. Know I know how those old gepes sitting in their rocking chairs down in Florida feel when they talk about Ebbets field or the Polo Grounds.

So half the Elite 8 is figured out. The surprise is Missouri, in a NBA like scoring game they had from the tip. They shot 53% from the field. Give credit to Memphis though they had some life in them and made it an interesting game down the stretch. If I could have had a mulligan in this NCAA pool it would have been not picking Purdue over UCONN. That was the dumbest pick of the year. Uconn stumbled coming into this tournament but they are a far better team, more athletic, more physical and more quick. A dangerous combo espeacially when facing a Big Ten team. With Memphis that knocks out alot of people who had them as NC. So that's nice. Although the WEST bracket is completely shot if you had Purdue as well (MORON). If Cuse and Louisville get that W tonight were looking at a major Big East dominance in the Elite 8 and probably beyond.

Next week beisbol preview Volume 1.

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

gepes are old italian men

tem said...

Mullens has a quote in the paper that explains his reasoning for turning pro by saying something like "people don't understand how hard it is to go to practice everyday."

El Padrino said...

a young italian man is referred to as a paisan

tem said...

good to see el pad isn't chancing his HDH.


now it is time to do some word before i can get back on here and post lots of works.

Beth said...

Gepes I have never heard but paisan I have heard of, thanks to The Sopranos. Also, there's a local Italian restaurant here called Paisanos.

What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No. I go for the chandelier; it's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I love the cold. Thirty years later I get a postcard. I have a son. And he's the Chief of Police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years. She's never taken another lover. I don't care. I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

spaceman spiff said...

Boat tragedy

Around 5:30 p.m., they went to pull up the anchor and head back to port, but the anchor was stuck. Bleakley suggested they tie it to the transom and use the boat's motor to pull it loose.

When Cooper tried to thrust the boat forward, the vessel became submerged and capsized, tossing the men overboard. They tried to upright the boat without success. Bleakley swam underneath and was able to retrieve three life vests, a large cooler and a makeshift flotation device.

Bleakley, who Schuyler has credited with saving his life, used the makeshift flotation device, which has been described previously as a cushion. The other three wore the vests.

The men appear to have tried everything in their power to rescue themselves: Schuyler told the agency they tried retrieving and using flares without success. They also tried getting their cell phones, which were in plastic baggies.

They knew how many hours were passing because Schuyler had a watch with a light on and was able to keep track of the time. He said that around 5:30 a.m. the next day, Cooper became unresponsive. Schuyler and Bleakley tried to revive him without success.

Cooper's flotation device was removed and Bleakley put it on. The Oakland Raiders linebacker then became separated from the boat.

Meiz said...

new lady needs to get the fuck off the cell phone. Shit is pissing me off.

LBJ has to win multiple titles to take the "best ever" title from Jordan.

homie don't play dat

LBJ might....might have more skillz, but MJ had it all, skillz and that killer attitude and blood-lust to win.

That one play where he stripped Karl Malone to basically clinch that one Finals - I don't see LBJ doing that......yet.

so if Fargo levees break and flood the place can we claim that "Osama hates white people" because he didn't do more to evacuate everyone?

The people in Fargo should be punished accordingly for living in Fargo.

you've never heard of Wheeling the movie have you?

no, so shut up Fargo.

tem said...

"can we claim that "Osama hates white people" because he didn't do more to evacuate everyone?"

yeah you can claim that now if you want.

isiah thomas said...

I was watching Osama at some press conference this AM and he was pronouncing Middle East country's names a littttle too much like a true Mooslim does. Noticed this before.

isiah thomas said...

one word - blacks

fo sho, he needs to get some real brothas in there, not the fake ones.

and "experts" need to stop saying Singler will play in the niba.

Huggins is a failure, tem.

Tyler said...

Did Blew fire that chick yesterday?

isiah thomas said...

for real dough, Dook hasn't been good for what 8 or 9 years?

how many players on Dook woulda played on those old Dook teams?

1? Henderson? and he woulda been a 6th or 7th man.

Singler = Erik Meek from back in the day.

Tyler said...

ESPN News is reporting that an analysis of Antonio Margarito's confiscated hand wraps finds primary elements of plaster of Paris.

Oops.

isiah thomas said...

Did Blew fire that chick yesterday?

negative

it was a snow day and he's oot* today

Tyler said...

Yeah, Duke is still riding their rep from 10 years ago. #2 seed, huh? How'd that work out for you, Coach K?

isiah thomas said...

tem I'm pedro gomez

isiah thomas said...

Ty Lawson turf-toe = Dook ACC champs

Tyler said...

Next year Duke needs to be a 4 or an 5 seed. Call a spade a spade. They are not good.

Tyler said...

UK fired their coach. The search is on.

isiah thomas said...

If they lose Singler and Henderson they will be uber bad.

I think they have another white stiff coming in and another fake black dood.

Tyler said...

Of course the delivery place gave me the awesome 11-3 window. That means dude is going to show up at 2:45.

Tyler said...

And the microwave/hood doesn't work. That was the least expensive thing.

I was at Sears for 2 hours on Monday night. Not good times.

Tyler said...

Microwave was the least expensive thing I had to buy I mean. Had to replace the one that was in the joint when I bought it.

kodiac said...

I'm assuming you took a day off then. Today is Caesar Chavez day. Calli government is shut down.
