Kick and Slap a friend

How many people remember the M.C. Hammer of old? I loved this era of rap. Of course I grew up with Hammer, so I’m also a fan of New Kids on the Block, Kris Kross and Vanilla Ice. I kind of know what two fifths of the New Kids on the Block are up to.…

Permission Denied

I would hate to be this guy. Look at his face when he walks off the court. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. The thing that did make me chuckle was T-Mac’s reaction as the guy was being escorted off the court by the Houston Rockets’ mascot. I did like the condolences given…

My Final Four is still alive

Thursday’s games are only a day away, and as I write this, I am sitting in fifth place (out of 27) in the office pool. My Final Four of UCLA (that A&M scare was a little much), Kansas, Texas and Tennessee are still alive.

Opening Day

The Sox beat the Athletics today 6-5. Not a lot of people probably watched the game, or were able to do so. It started at 5 a.m. Tuesday. Another reason is because the sacred day in baseball, opening day, was played overseas in Japan. Do I have a problem with internationalizing the game? Nope, I…

Jackie Chan’s greatness

I stumbled across this video the other day on some obscure website and knew I had to pass it along to others. I’ll open this up by saying Jackie Chan is crazy — as you can see after watching the video. I knew he did a lot of movies and did all of his own…

Friday morning games go the distance

By now, you have seen or heard about Belmont’s near-upset of Duke, which would have been only the second time in NCAA history that a No. 2 seed went down in the first round. That was by far the most entertaining game of Thursday. There have been only four games played so far Friday, but…

My bracket is finished

Right now, I am supposed to be vacuuming the floor and doing a couple more chores before my wife gets home. But instead, I just finished up my bracket. And now in my hands I have a computer instead of a Dirt Devil so I can tell you about my picks.

Virginia Tech vs. The Bronx Bombers

Yesterday the Virginia Tech Hokies took on the New York Yankees and lost 11-0. The score doesn’t matter, but who really knew that the game was played? I sure didn’t and I would have liked to have watched. I found out when I watched ESPN News late yesterday. It was a nice, emotional story about…

Scattered, Smothered and Covered

How would you like to have your hash browns served by this guy? I don’t know what’s better — the lack of the undershirt or the fedora and matching track suit. Kid Rock did a little side dishing at the Waffle House where he was involved in a brawl in 2007. Don’t you just love…

Sweet 16 picks

My bracket is going to bust. I don’t know why I can just feel the holes at the bottom of the boat. I have a thing for the underdog. Most of the time, whatever game I’m watching I’ll root for the losing team. Can’t blame a guy for wanting to see a close game, can…

Ghosts I-IV

Trent Reznor went for the big time and won big. The Nine Inch Nails’ frontman decided to release his band’s news creative offering online, and boy has it been successful. Since the album was released March 2 about 750,000 downloads have been tallied. I read original story on an off-spin of a Ticketmaster.com website. To…

Baylor is in trouble, sort of

I would like to see Baylor make the NCAA Tournament simple because I think it is a great story. Remember, it was only a few years ago the Bears had one player murdered by another, and a seedy coach who tried to cover it up. They have had a great year. But Thursday was a…

Hot, new artist: Santogold

Santogold “L.E.S. Artistes”by bluntedsoul I really liked this video, and I hope you do too. Santogold was featured by Rolling Stone magazine late last year as one of their “artists to watch.” She has more stuff on her myspace page. I believe she’s from Brooklyn, but not 100 percent sure. I also don’t believe she…

Army of TWO

The newest new game on the block for any gaming device is PS3′s Army of TWO. The co-op game features everything a growing boy loves. Blood, terrorists, explosions and corruption. Army of TWO is about two semi-straight shooters that want to flush out corruption for the privatized military organization they belong to. Not exactly something…

Fantasy Baseball is in the air.

ERA, WHIP, OPS — to some those little acronyms mean nothing. To others, they mean everything in the world for the next six months. Fantasy Baseball is getting bigger every year. The leisure fan jumps in and becomes a nut and then the cycle continues. Leisure fan is the key. Once they become crazed they…

The Madness is here

It’s the best time of the sports season — football season not withstanding (and it also takes backseat once every four years while the World Cup is going on). March Madness is right around the corner. While I write this, Syracuse-Villanova is near tip-off in the Big East Tournament first round.
