"when I get to the NBA, everyone's gonna fucking cry!"
hell yeah! fucking NEBULA!!
Truth be told, that song is my favorite Nebula song, and in my top 10 songs of all time.
I don't know about you, but the drunker I get, the more amped I get on this stupid commercial.
If Adam Morrison picked that song then my estimation of him just rose 10,000 percent.

The Baseball Hall of Fame: BSG Style
Someone emailed this to me, apparently they're an ESPN Insider seeing it for the first time. Thought I'd post it here:

a couple things...
1. what was the deal with the ChiSox and Journey? Dan Patrick talked about this like every day during the playoffs. if ineed, as Patrick insinuated, AJ Psjkfsjfslski got drunk at some bar and yelled "PLAY SOME FUCKIN' JOURNEY!", followed by the female singer-led band playing "Don't Stop Believing," he's easily my favorite baseball player ever. That's cooler than Keith Hernandez doing lines off the dashboard of his car in the Shea parking lot.

2. Simmons or Cuban ( I can't remember who) made the best point yet about the NBA dress code: that the League is thinking, "hey, a lot of people out there really don't like black people or the way many of them like to dress, but we want their money too!!!"

I MET THE SPORTS' GUY TONITE!!!
He was at Holy Cross tonight, which is in the same city where I go to school (Worcester).

Anyway, the Sports' Guy is funnier in real life than in print.  He gave a speech about college life (which was actually very good) took some question.  I got to ask him "What person have you be 'star-sturck' from, like Charlie Murphy went he saw Rick James?"  Anyway, he said "Luke Perry, because he's 6 inches shorter than and after the show (the Jimmy Kimmel show) I convince him to replicate Dylon's performance when he found out his dad was blown up and he really got into it."

Anyway, unfortunaley he feels that the Yanks are goin to the World Series this year against...THE ASTROS (he's convinced that Clemens' is goin to be this World Series hero for Houston).

Well, after he fielded questions, we did some book signings and I was one of the first.  On the book, they made you put a post-it on the front of your book just so it could easier for the Sports' Guy to personalize it, so I wrote on my post-it "Alec Tolivaisa aka CHEST ROCKWELL".  He liked it and wrote "To ALEC AKA CHEST ROCKWELL...KEEP ON ROCKIN AND ROLLIN', Bill Simmons". 

The Sports Guy is one cool guy.

And I guess we really shouldn't be surprised...

Now I Can Die in Peace : How ESPN's Sports Guy Found Salvation, with a Little Help from Nomar, Pedro, Shawshank, and the 2004 Red Sox

BYNUM! MEDVEDENKO!! NBA ACTION IS FANTASTIC!!!
so this guy came into my work last nite:

it was weird, because I saw him earlier ( I said to myself "that guy's fucking tall"), before a co-worker said to me "do you know who that is? that's that kid from Plainsboro [my town] that got drafted by the Lakers." He didn't appear to be "The Next Shaq," or even a legit 7". I don't know why I didn't get his autograph. Maybe it's because he's not a "real" player yet or some shit. Maybe because I hate the Lakers and Kobe. I might even hate the Lakers more than the Yankees. Even so, I would have been cool, because like my wife said, it would have been a story because we won't be living in Plainsboro that much longer. However, truth be told, I think collecting  sports autographs is totally cool. One time, my wife and her brother and I waited outside a Ranger game and got a bunch of autographs on pucks, including Theo Fleury--the coolest fucking hockey player ever. He came out of the Garden with JASON PRIESTLY (!!) and probably went to do some blow and bang some hookers.
     anyway, i probably should have went up to Bynum and said "WEAR A CONDOM!!
OR THREE!!"
do you know how many scandalous bitches are going to try and trap this kid with their vaginas? this guy will be banging hookers, escorts, and porn stars like there's no tomorrow. unless he's one of those Jesus guys, or one of those guys that gets drafted and moves his whole family out to whatever city that drafted him (FUCKING LAME).
or it would have been funny if i said "tell Luke Walton he's a goddamn nerd."

ps. they also have Pete Maravich and 70s Bill Walton action figures at my job now!!

pps. did anyone hear on Stern last week when Mary Carey (some porn star) basically admitted that she banged Medvedenko and Brian Cook. fucking hilarious! If Stern (David, that is) heard it or if someone told him about it, he threw up in his mouth, guaranteed. she also said she banged some Timberwolves (T-Wolves?). If it was "The Mayor," that's extremely high on the UCS.

ppps. VEGAS ALL-STAR WEEKEND 07!!!

pppps. "THERE ARE NO RULES TONIGHT"!!!

ppppps. if you know the source of the previous quote, you're pretty fucking cool

From Sports Guy's World
"The Yankees came from behind to beat the Pirates 7-5. Tony Randazzo got the win for the Yanks." -- Mets play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen while doing the out-of-town scoreboard on Thursday afternoon, referring to first-base umpire Tony Randazzo's blown call in the ninth inning on Wednesday night

email?
I am a dope and do not appear to have the SG email address anywhere. I want to hassle Simmons for not noticing about Lost being a recap episode, but can't without email. Any helpers out there?

a question
ok, i'm new in here and i have a question because i presume that there must be a bunch of boston fans in here. i live in new orleans and in november, i will traveling to foxboro to see the saints. i am very passionate about the saints, i am a cubs fan, and now a hornets fan since they came to town. needless to say, i am very used to losing, and i still don't take it very well. i get very loud and boisterous at games, but never to the point of fighting, that's just plain stupid. i generally get along with opposing fans because i love to shit talk, but i realize it's all in good fun.

here's my question... will i make it back home from boston alive this november?

btw, will simmons be coming out with a mock draft today? i can't remember from years past.

Given the news in the Opening Day column...
... how long before SG starts blaming himself for the Red Sox's lack of a title because he didn't impregnate Sports Gal sooner?
