This night job is making sure I don’t see any NBA games during the week unless I’m working an actual game. Damn I wanted to see Lakers/Rockets. Ron and Kobe go way back. Check the interview. As far as work? Got to make the donuts so it’s chillllll. Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Ron Ron gets lit up by Beans (L.A. Times)

Texas Tech’s Mike Singletary goes off for 43 in early Big 12 action–including 29 straight. Epic. (Houston Chronicle)

USA loses to Venezuela in Group C finale (MLB.com)

Shoe thrower gets three years? (Al Jazerra)

Why the poor stay poor (NY Times)

Google goes phone (BBC News)

Hip Hop Chess? (NBC Bay Area)

We need more men coaching our kids who demand respect but whipping brothas and choking cats just ain’t cool. Plus he had Michigan’s number no matter who was on the roster (I think he beat the Fab Five four times by one point). In all the years I’ve been following college basketball, I think we blew them out one time–back when Louis Bullock was our mad bomber.
