Wonder If He Realizes This?


Yeah, that's a pretty big difference! Wake up, Mr. Stern. You approved the schedule, now fine yourself and the schedule-makers.

Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends


Surviving 2012 and Planet X


That's part 1, and here are the rest.

There's a lot of truth and wonder in this short series. I became a little less supportive during videos 3 & 4, but the fact remains that there is a large mass approaching our solar system. The ramifications would be huge.

Then I see that this series was published in 2007. Hmmm... well, you can say it's old news, but in the complete scope of things space-related, 5 years is actually tiny.

Spurs Update


So the buzz all night as the San Antonio Spurs visited the Miami Heat earlier Thursday night was the fact that Gregg Popovich chose not to play Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Danny Green for their 4th game in 5 days.

Spurs had won 5 straight road games, and 29 out of their last 33 (an all-time NBA record). Now for the final game of this long road-trip, and their second long road-trip of the season already, the best coach in the league decides to rest some key players. What better experience could the guys on your already strong bench get?

The issue that shouldn't have been continued to be an issue because, of course, the TNT announcing crew of Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, and Kevin Harlan wouldn't leave it alone. Most had positive words to say, and I applaud them for that. But the media also wouldn't leave it alone. But what's new with the media? They take stupid stories involving the big-market teams (in any sport), and blow them way out of proportion. And the Spurs never get any media bias, but we, as Spurs fans, are OK with this. We don't need it, nor want it.

Not long after the starting lineups were announced, NBA commissioner David Stern came out with a statement:

"I apologize to all NBA fans. This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming." (Source)

Not only is this BS, but after the fact, it's going to be very interesting to see how Stern reacts after the outcome of the game. The game was a good one! Spurs had the chance to win down the stretch, and even led for a lot of this game. David Stern needs to step aside already, and apologize for his remarks. In a statement that his successor, Adam Silver, made in response to a very similar situation last season regarding the Spurs, Silver said:

"The strategic resting of particular players on particular nights is within the discretion of the teams." (Source)

Be sure to take a look at the box score for this game of "no-names" against the current NBA champions.

By the way, here's how ESPN's Sportsnation views the (non)-issue:

Spurs are 13-4, and doing very well, stupid issues aside. They host the hot Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday, Dec. 1 in only their 4th home game since Nov. 7th. Memphis currently holds the best record in the NBA at 11-2. I would think I'd want my players fresh for that game, especially since the Grizzlies are not only a conference opponent, but a division foe as well.

UPDATE: David Stern has fined the organization $250,000.

Crock. Of. Horse$%&@.

And here's an awesome Reddit thread about this..

Fast Asleep (OC)


So my wife snapped a quick picture of me sleeping the other night. Yeah that's me & my dirty foot. What's more important is the position I'm in. I hate not being covered-up, and I rarely fall asleep on my back. I was probably snoring too.. Blah blah blah... LOL

This is just another example that proves my feeling that John Petrucci and Mike Portnoy were BORN to play together. So tight. I love it. And you know what? Replace Tony Levin with John Myung, and you have Dream Theater without their singer. Not that you didn't know this. How beautiful is this?

Wheeeee! Incredible news. I'll have a new XBox360, and will finally get to play GTA IV, but the reviews of this game have been super so far. I can't wait.
