In an effort to get out of attempting to write something somewhat clever each Sunday, I’m going to instead link up to some of my favorite posts from the previous week. Each link is 10-30 minutes well wasted.
Celtics/Magic: Eastern Conference Finals
Vince Cater’s career is defined by a dunk in the 2000 Summer Olympics? I can agree with that to a point because he has certainly never done anything on an NBA court worth talking about. He shoots too much, has quit on multiple teams, left the Raptors the morning of the biggest game in franchise history to get his diploma and doesn’t play defense. He may be a nice guy but up to this point he has been nothing more than a cancer to each team he’s played on. He’ll give you 20-5-5 every night and make sure of it – whether it hurts the team or not.
Instead of ripping another Tar Heel, I’m going to give some serious props to Sheed. Granted he played out of shape for the entire season, pulled down fewer rebounds per minute than anyone bigger than 6’9 in the NBA and shot more bad 3-pointers than I do in rec basketball – I have to give it up for Dr. Technical. Maybe he was saving himself for the playoffs??
I love how reputable news sources quote Delaney from his Twitter page. On another note, Rivals has VT picked as No. 18 preseason since the Hokies return their top 7 players and add Allan Chaney (6’9 transfer from Billy Donovan’s Florida team who red-shirted last year). This has me quite concerned for some reason.
Macgruber in Theatres 5/21
Fantastic read on SNL sketches that go to the big screen. I have some that I loved and quote weekly (Wayne’s World 1 & 2) and others that I attempted to strangle the pizza faced kid at the ticket counter for lighting my 8 bucks on fire (see The Ladies Man, A Night at the Roxbury). I will however been in line for Macgruber after hearing Jimmy Fallon say it was the most sick and disturbing (in a hilarious way) movie he had seen in a long time.
Final Week of LOST…ever
One of many articles I wasted time reading that tells you very little but gets you hyped even more than you already are. But seriously, read it.
