Pet Shaming


I'm not supporting this due to its lack of effectiveness, but I love it nonetheless. I think it would really only work if all the dogs in the neighborhood would be forced to have regular meetings, and they'd all have to wear their shaming signs. Oh yeah, and they'd also have to be able to read.

My Rusty's sign would say "I hike my leg around the house" -or- "I get up on tables looking for food".

Harley's sign would read "I wait for Rusty to leave the room, and then I eat his food before my own" -or- "I suckle on Rusty even though he's not my mother - nor is he female".

Reese's would undoubtedly read "I bark wayyyy too much".

A Good Article About The Most Interesting Man In The World

from Nick Paumgarten at The New Yorker

The most interesting thing about the man who plays the Most Interesting Man in the World, in those TV ads for Dos Equis beer, is that he is interesting, too, perhaps even superlatively so. His name is Jonathan Goldsmith. He’s the one who says, in a Spanishy accent, at the end of each spot, “I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos Equis.” What makes his Most Interesting Man character interesting, besides a preference for spirits, is other traits invented for him by copywriters:

At museums, he’s allowed to touch the art... His blood smells like cologne... Sharks have a week dedicated to him... He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels... The police often question him, just because they find him interesting.

These lines are recited gravely by the narrator of “Frontline” over faux-grainy clips of our Man cliff-diving in Acapulco, or splashing down in a space capsule, or lying in a hospital bed stitching up a wound on his own shoulder while surgeons and nurses stand around idly, chuckling at his jokes.

Goldsmith is not this man. Still, he has more in common with him than you do. A montage of highlights from the real life of Jonathan Goldsmith might include (had there been cameras present) footage of him rescuing a stranded climber on Mt. Whitney, saving a drowning girl in Malibu, sailing the high seas with his friend Fernando Lamas (the inspiration for his Interesting persona and, according to Goldsmith, “the greatest swordsman who ever lived in Hollywood”), and starting a successful network marketing business (“I was a hustler, a very good hustler”), which, for a while, anyway, enabled him to flee Hollywood for an estate in the Sierras. Among the outtakes might be glimpses of his stint as a waterless-car-wash entrepreneur. “I love the old philosophers,” he said. “I have a large library. I am not a die-hard sports fan. I love to cut wood.”

Goldsmith, who is seventy-two, related these and other data the other day over an early lunch in midtown. He was accompanied by his wife, Barbara, who, as his agent, five years ago, got him the Dos Equis gig. They’d recently left their spouses and moved in together. They live aboard his sailboat, in Marina del Rey, but had come East to (a) buy a new house in Vermont, to retire to, and (b) spend a week in New York, sussing out what the Most Interesting Man in the World could do for Jonathan Goldsmith.

Gary Neal's Circus Shot In LA Last Night

"Shot of the season so far" -- Charles Barkley

Try It - It Works!


Ohh The Many Faces You Could Make


Sol Wallerstein's 61

Sol Wallerstein was at the country club for his weekly round of golf. He began his round with an eagle on the first hole and a birdie on the second.

On the third hole he had just scored his first ever hole-in-one when his cell phone rang... It was a doctor notifying him that his wife had just been in an accident, and was in critical condition in ICU.

The man told the doctor to inform his wife where he was, and that he'd be there as soon as possible. As he hung up, he realized he'd be leaving what was shaping up to be his best-ever round of golf. So he decided to get in a couple more holes before heading to the hospital.

Well, he ended up playing all eighteen, finishing his round, and shooting a personal best 61 - shattering the course record by five strokes, and beating his previous best round by more than 10. He was jubilant...

Then he remembered about his wife. Feeling guilty he dashed to the hospital. He saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about his wife's condition. The doctor glared at him and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your round of golf didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself!"

"While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself at the country club, your wife has been languishing in the ICU! It's just as well you went ahead and finished that round because it will be more than likely your last! For the rest of her life, she will require round-the-clock care and you will be her care giver! She will need IVs; you will have to change her colostomy bag every 3 hours; she will have to be spoon fed 3 times a day and don't forget the hygiene care."

The man was feeling so guilty he broke down and sobbed…

Then the doctor snickered and said, "I'm just screwing with you. She's dead. What'd you shoot?"

Thanks Jeff!

Golf Magazine's Top-100 Courses You Can Play

From bargains under $50 to once-in-a-lifetime splurges, there's something for everyone in this year's ranking of the best public access courses in the U.S.

Way back when, some French guy uttered the equivalent of, "the more things change, the more they stay the same." That's true at the top of our ranking of the best public access courses in the U.S., where Oregon's Pacific Dunes again edges out Pebble Beach for honors among our course-ranking panelists and well-traveled spies.

Perhaps the strongest challenge to Pacific Dunes might come from its sibling, Old Macdonald, the highest-ranked of seven courses to debut this year. As we welcome back two old classics that enjoyed recent makeovers, we offer a tip of the cap to two Top 100 Courses that closed in
Pacific Dunes - Bandon, Oregon

this brutal economy (Beechtree and Reflection Bay). But that same economy has opened up two other once-private courses that make our list.

Clicking on the list below will take you to the full list where you can scroll through it. Also be sure to check out the interactive map they have as well (pictured in the banner image).

Yeah Sports Are That Important




Also must include:

Lakers Trade Rumors?

The rumor mill has spun into overdrive after an underwhelming winter, compounded by bad losses to Sacramento and Boston, prompted reports of Mitch Kupchak's openness toward a trade. Who would the Lakers move? Who could they get? How radical a shakeup are we talking? Is this the equivalent of the panic button pushed?

You can click here to continue to the rest of this article, entitled My guess? Nobody is going anywhere - by ESPN's Andy Kamenetzky.

But my purpose for this post was born when I saw a particular stat on Sportscenter just now. The Lakers are only 3 games behind last year's pace. A lot of the other stats are also very similar to last year (and the year before that even) - with the one prominent exception being Kobe Bryant's scoring average, among a few subtle others.

So why would they be considering making a trade? You know, a trade that would have to be fairly big considering there is already a lot of talent in place?

I don't have the answer - but I'm pretty certain of one thing. They wouldn't be talking about it - much less making such talk public - and especially NOW if:

• the Spurs weren't 7 games ahead of them, and on such a freakishly gaudy pace.

• the aforementioned Spurs weren't coming to town tomorrow night.

Yeah I know Boston's a few ahead as well. And there's Miami and Chicago right there, but merely a game up with 33 some odd games remaining is miniscule. Boston is doing what everyone expected. Miami is somewhat underachieving - at least according to the "experts". And Chicago is having a pretty special season so far, although enduring a few key injuries.

So with that being said, why are Mitch Kupchak (pictured above - Source), Magic Johnson, and a lot of the biased media worried enough to make a trade?

They're jealous of San Antonio! They aren't doing what we're doing! Granted we ran into a hot, inspired LaMarcus Aldridge Portland team tonight, and dropped the first game of our 9-game roadie, but hey. The same experts all think we're gonna fall on our faces and win around 62-65 games. We might lose a few on the trip, but we shall see what changes happens after Thursday night at Staples Center.

Must Be Someone From The South


Then again, here I am in south Texas - posting this picture. I'm not praying for it, but I'm hoping for a little bit. Those guys get so-o-o much, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if we had an inch or two of their snow. C'mon!!

It'll all be worth it if we get a little snow. But then again we haven't had considerable snowfall here since 1985.
