" As I spend more and more time around basketball players, my brain power continues to diminish," says Phoenix Suns 12th man Paul Shirley, who's blogging (!) about their 8-game road trip. Alternately hilarious and amusingly depressing, this is a must, must read. Shirley gripes about conversations with high-school educated ballers, having trouble finding stable relationships, Tom Gugliotta's lame tattoo, his focusless teammates, Miami's silicon dependency, and not getting off the bench.

  1. Blogger Julian Silvain: I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

    It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about mens male enhancement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about mens male enhancement reviews related articles and subjects.

The American version of "The Office" is getting set to premiere Thursday on NBC. And while early reviews suggest it won't be as bad as "Coupling," why again are they doing this? The original BBC version crosses a few too many lines for the FCC to air on a broadcast network (like the giant inflatable penis episode), but shouldn't we be able to live without corrupting original versions of superior shows? (Not to mention movies... don't get me started on The Bad News Bears remake...)

In any case, nothing replaces the original, and while Steve Carell is (was?) great on "The Daily Show," he cannot replace Ricky Gervais' David Brent. Thankfully, Gervais is still hard at work on new comedy (for NBC to eventually appropriate and cast Americans in). William

The soccer magazine Four-Four-Two put out a list of the best throwback jerseys ever. I think my favorite is the 1966 AS Roma shirt.

There are many, many more cool international soccer shirts to be found at The Old Fashioned Football Shirt Company. Damn, I should have invested in this when I first walked past Mitchell & Ness in Philly some years back. Now there are sites all over the net where you can get crazy retro sports stuff like t-shirts of the New Jersey Americans from the old American Soccer League. Put your favorites in the comments!

In today's Sunday NYT Magazine Q&A, Deborah Solomon takes on "Jeff Gannon," the former White House "reporter" for "Talon News," a conservative website. Gannon's real name is James Guckert, and he is believed to have previously run a gay escort service. His "outing" as a fake news reporter in the White House press corps caused outrage in journalism circles. The hostility in Solomon's questions is palpable. Regardless of what a tool the guy is, she may be a little overboard here. Or maybe not. He does deserve some hostility, after all, for being a liar in gaining access to the White House. William

like the last two, from CNN: 'Obviously, fans would love to see a movie about Darth Vader running around killing people,' said George Lucas, who also was on hand to receive a 'galactic-achievement award' from ShoWest organizers. 'I'm not telling that story, and I'm not interested in that. That's not what the movie is.'

Let's see, so ALL of the Jedis besides Vader and Yoda have to die, but they aren't going to say how it happened? Yeah, I'm going to camp out for three months to see this piece of crap. ben

Imagine having a young child and taking him/her to a circus that would feature a breathtaking act of Asian acrobats. Now imagine if they turned out to be Caucasian men in black wigs and a woman hula-hooping. You can imagine the disappointment. William

Super-G overall champ Bode Miller thinks that skiing should be televised in the U.S. more. He argues: "People in the U.S. will watch anything if it's put in front of their face over and over again." It's sad but true, but couldn't we get soccer instead?

Nonetheless, Miller is the first American to win the overall title in the super-G, which is pretty amazing. He's a household name in Austria and Switzerland. Here, though, we only give a crap once every four years. And then a couple of months later, everyone except Mary Lou Retton or Flo Jo drift back into the ether. I am always amused by how much gold medal winners expect to cash in on their success, but six months later they have dropped off the face of the earth. Where's Michael Phelps? Where's the Hamm twins? No one cares. A bitter reality for athletes who train so hard to get to the Olympics. ben

So yummy! Wear it, then share itI was looking for Britney news at the supermarket checkout when I discovered Jessica Simpson's Dessert Treats -- fragrances, sugar shimmer, whipped body cream with sprinkles ("wear it, then share it"), and body frosting (Nick loves it when I wear these. They're like milkshakes for your skin and so yummy!). I don't understand if these are gateway cosmetics for tweens or sex aids for grownups. Sam

until someone came up with the Walk of Game, a hall of fame for video game stuff, at a entertainment complex in San Francisco. First inductees include Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, the guy who invented Pong, Zelda, Halo, and the guy who invented Donkey Kong. ben

  1. Blogger William: The second class of inductees better contain video game Bo Jackson, Baseball Stars, Super Tecmo Bowl, and the Madden franchise. 3/11/2005

The PacifierIt's "without doubt the worst film of the year so far", and further described as "actually painful to watch," "a form of cruel...punishment," "Absymal", "clumsy" and "like 'The School of Rock', only not funny" by reviewers.

"The Pacifier" made 30.2 million dollars this weekend to lead at the box office.

I hate everyone. ben

Jay Leno has been subpoenaed to appear as a witness in the Michael Jackson trial, and NBC is now submitting a request asking that he doesn't have to abide by a gag order that keeps participants from talking publicly about the trial. Not that Leno is very funny at all, but the trial is (over)ripe for humor and not being able to talk about it would certainly cramp Leno's ability to attract viewers (who should be watching Letterman anyway).

I want to be a professional line-stander. Yes, it really is a job in Washington. People who are paid to stand in line before congressional hearings or Supreme Court cases in order to save places for lobbyists or lawyers, etc., who haven't the time or patience to wait themselves, yet still want a good seat. I saw many of these services in use years ago when I was attending Hill hearings on a frequent basis. William
