Admittedly, PYB has been uninspired lately -- by a lack of internal drive (aka too much fucking work) and a lack of news. We didn't even have the heart to rip the ESPYs this year.
If the matchup did ever take place, we'd have just one request: that Christian Laettner have the long-hair-and-headband look that he sported the last two years of his NBA career. Well, that and that he and Griffin could play against each other, so the two biggest pussy studio gangstas in basketball history could flop around and pretend like they wanted to fight for two hours. Moving on.....
--PYB is happy for Ade Dagunduro and his Nigerian teammates. But isn't it sad when the most excitement surrounding the NU basketball program in the last ten years comes when rooting for a player from five years ago to QUALIFY for the Olympics on an also-ran squad?
--Dear Omaha World Herald: Please fix your fucking web site.
--Dear Yahoo! Sports: Quit ruining your web site. We quite using all your competitors' sites years ago due to them all being unreadable and unusable. We're here for good info -- not Macromedia Flash bullshit.
--Steve Stricker is at it again: beating up on also-rans and never-will-bes at the John Deere Classic this week on the PGA Tour. Way to go collect a check, Steve. Feel free to contend in a major one time, and quit beating up on Tom Gillis and Jimmy Walker. Stricker's pathetic ways do have a couple plusses for us: we get to see him cry after a victory and it gave us the chance to dub Eldrick Woods "The Black Steve Stricker", much like Keyshawn Johnson was "The Black Ricky Proehl".
All for now...gotta run!!
