If we too simple, y'all don't get the basics...



- FreeDarko: Free Darko is an army… and I am officially a part of the Shenanigans. If you’re not in a reading mood, just peep the Shawn Kemp highlights.

- Smut for Smut: Man. This is so awesome: “Atheist Agenda, an atheist group at U Texas San Antonio, staged a ‘Porno for Bibles’ event, where they gave free pornography to people who traded in religious scripture.” It don’t get much funnier than that. Here’s a news story about it.

- Rasputin’s Thang: Apparently, a Russian museum is gonna exhibit Rasputin’s Penis (not this guy). Interesting.

- Next Level: Peep game: next level disc technology that’s finna make CDs and DVDs obsolete. Holograms is what the new millennium is all about it ‘bout it.

- Another Disco D Production: Disco D has been killing it recently. T-Pain’s “ I’m Sprung” remix or in the studio with Spank Rock. The Spank Rock ish is crazy.

- Bill Simmons: Sometimes Bill Simmons is just untouchable. I think his greatness really comes out in his mail bag section where he keeps his response short and funny. For example, when asked what it would sound like to hear the crew of ESPN’s “Sunday Night Football” give a eulogy, Simmons is right on the money, especially with the Al Maguire quotes. Hilarious.
    Mike Patrick: Guys, we'd be remiss if we didn't say good-bye to one of the great, great actors of our generation, Pat Morita -- what an actor this guy was! Just a great, great, great actor.
    Joe Theismann: Mike, when we talked to John Avildsen, the director of "The Karate Kid," he told us that Pat Morita was one of the greatest actors he ever worked with. I mean, here's a guy who was simply robbed for the 1984 Best Supporting Actor by Dr. Haing S. Ngor.
    Paul Maguire: I'm gonna tell you what a great actor this guy was. Watch this clip from the first "Karate Kid" when he saves Daniel-San on Halloween ... watch him jump this fence and take out the Cobra Kai -- here it comes, here it comes, WHAM! BAM! Right there! And look at his feet! See his feet moving! Is this guy something? You think this guy doesn't know karate?
    Patrick: What a scene for Pat Morita! HOLY COW!
    Theismann: And guys, when we talked to Jimmy Franklin, the head writer for "Happy Days" back in 1977, he told us that Pat Morita was the easiest guy he has ever written for -- and this is a guy who wrote for Pat Schneider, Vic Tayback, Conrad Bain and pretty much every great sitcom actor from that decade.
    Maguire: And Joe, you want to talk about a guy who could steal a scene? This guy could steal scenes. He'd steal 'em right out of thin air! And you know the thing about Pat Morita -- when he belted out a line like "wax on, wax off," I'm gonna tell you somethin' right now: You believed him. You waxed on, and you waxed off.
    Theismann: I'm not so sure he wasn't the greatest character actor of all-time.
    Patrick: What a great, great actor and what a huge, huge loss -- you cannot say enough about it. So long, Pat Morita.

Apparently there’s a lot of hate for these guys out there in the blogosphere. Check here, here, and here. And don’t forget about the drinking game which includes drinking every time Paul Maguire says “I'm gonna tell ya something” or Joe Theismann (the man who once said “Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein ”) says “What impresses me most about [insert name of player here].”

i don't need a blog post to express my unadulterated hate for that espn crew...Theismann is sorta harmless, though retarded. Maguire's TERRIBLE and Patrick gets pulled down because he plays off(in a bad way) those two mindless hacks all the time.

i always feel like that crew is more concerned about making an outrageous comment or observation rather than calling the damn game...meaning they are like most tv media personalities.
