They forgot to mention the $50 T-shirts! Otherwise this is right-on. I've been to several Ozzfests that were exactly like this, and the worst thing about it is they always happened in the dead of July or August. We all know how Texas weather is in the summer.

The World Record for Human Mattress Dominoes

850 people in New Orleans took part in this World Record attempt, in which they were knocked back onto mattresses as human dominoes.

A Terrific Problem

All you have to do is solve the one at the bottom based upon the others. Don't think too much - it's not as difficult as you might believe.

8809 = 6

After a little bit of digging around, this problem is apparently all over the Internets, so I have no idea its source.

I ran across it HERE.

Spurs Update

The San Antonio Spurs (24-10) began the second-half of the 2012 season at home Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls (28-8). The good news, other than finally being back at home for a 7-game home stand, is we get TJ Ford and Tiago Splitter back tonight. The bad news is Kawhi Leonard still has a strained calf-muscle, and Manu has a few more games to go to rest his strained oblique.

DeJuan Blair came to play, and helped us to an early 9-2 lead. Then after a Chicago timeout, they would narrow the gap, and

most of the rest of the 1st quarter would be a very defensive game. From 16-15 Tony would score our last 6 to end the 1st-Q 22-20.

Then we would get a reminder from CJ Watson. The guy can shoot. Neal, Splitter, and Timmy would keep us close, however. Then two Derrick Rose jumpers, and a Kyle Korver three forced a Popovich timeout, down 48-40. Trade buckets again, and go to the half at 50-42.

After the Bulls would jump out to a 54-43 lead, Timmy shifted into top gear, and again reminded us why he's.. well, Tim Duncan. He would fuel a 23-11 run with 12 3rd-Q points of his own. At the same time Pop's philosophy on containing Derrick Rose was working like a charm. Now the lead is ours after 3: 66-65.

Matt Bonner would open the 4th with his only three of the contest, but Watson, Ronnie Brewer, and Taj Gibson together would quickly tie it up. Gary Neal would then make 15 out of San Antonio's next 17 points, during a stretch where

Rose, Korver, and Deng would score several clutch late-game buckets. But after many lead-changes, and a pair of Derrick Rose jumpers, Pop would call timeout, down 89-84 with 1:09 left.

Out of the timeout, Neal would hit the last of his Spurs'-leading 21 points (89-86). Using as much of the clock as possible, Luol Deng would hit a huge uncharacteristically wide-open three (92-86) with 0:39 left, and we'd suddenly be in foul-mode. Korver would hit two FTs, but then RJ would nail one of his only two threes of the game (94-89). And it would be our last score of the game, as the Bulls would get a couple more FTs to seal our 96-89 LOSS. Here's the boxscore..

Next up is Charlotte Friday and Denver Sunday.

Some Things Never Change

So we win 11-straight, and 12 of 13. We go 8-1 on a 9-game road trip, and come home at 24-10 at the "half-way" point. Then we play a hard-fought game against one of the best teams in the league, and lose by 7, and suddenly a majority of the nation thinks we're not contenders? That's OK - they've said the same thing every single year that I can remember - even between 1999 & 2007. And yeah every season since '07 we're "washed-up".. we're in "rebuilding mode".. we're "so old" that our only weapons are our canes.

Once again, I just laugh at them all.

Leap Year Explained

My nephew and his wife are having a baby, and were trying to choose between tomorrow and March 1 for her to be induced. Turns out they won't have the choice, and the little one will be born tomorrow - on February 29th. Hmmm... Very happy for them, but how is this child going to understand his birthday? It'll take a few years...

By the way both of the parents' birthdays are on the 1st of a month.

Speed Isn't Everything

...not when evaluating QBs, but this is pretty impressive from Mr. RG3:


(Overlayed Cam Newton's, Andrew Luck's, and Robert Griffin III's NFL Combine 40s.)

Well I Made it to the Leaderboard

...but then I missed my next pick to go to 16-straight. So close, but yet so far.

Click to enlarge!

My previous best was 12 (twice). Started out being really picky, and then when the streak gets longer & longer, you can't help but be even more picky. Then you get towards the end of the month, when the contest ends, and realize you're gonna run out of days. So on a day in which I didn't feel very confident in any of the possible props, I decided to go with "Syracuse winning margin" over "Connecticut 3-pointers made". The Orange won by 2, but UConn had 6 threes. Sigh! I was pretty confident they'd win by 10-15 or so. Oh well..
