I'll be Dumpster Diving Today

My posts may be a little sparse over the next few days as I plan on spending most of my time searching a Quick Shop Food Mart dumpster in Cleveland. If my quest is successful, I promise to post on a more regular basis as soon as I quit my job.

Knicks Notes

Right now the emergence of Frank Williams is good to see if your a Knicks fan. It will be interesting to see how newly aquired Moochie will fit in -- does this mean the end for Ward? Hope so. I'm also interested to see how Isiah's CBA find Leon Smith does.

Mad Fv&%ing Cows in Washington

I'm not surprised at all to hear that they found a Mad Cow in the U.S. If you read Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation you'll understand why too.

This Just In: More Losers Live With Their Parents

Gawker and the Times are wrong about this:
From the Times' long explication of The Troubled Kids Today: "Many spend their 20's and early 30's shuttling between college and work, professional school and travel, community service and internships, never earning enough to settle down, marry and raise a child." Right. Because the poor never get married and breed.
It's because they're sheepish and afraid -- not because they don't earn enough. Gawker is right to call them losers but not because they're poor.

Blog Describes A Rogue Cop

Newsday: "So I have come up with a better way of writing tickets. I just write down the plates of the cars that cut me off the the [sic] parkways and I send them a bogus parking ticket in the mail. The person will then have to deal with the Parking Violations Bureau and not me. Problem quickly resolved. So, in other words, be careful who you cut off on the road. They might be an off-duty cop and they could write your plates down and write you a $150 parking ticket. Have a nice day.'"

Broadway Joe Drunk

During the Jets vs Pats game on Saturday night Suzy Kolber did a quick sideline interview with a seemingly drunk Joe Namath. The clip is hysterical. He's slurring and swaying and TWICE he asks Suzy if he could kiss her! Check it out.

Update: Namath to Offer Apology for Bizarre ESPN Interview

Isiah Thomas hired?

Some great quotes: "Two nefarious villains plucked from our midst within 2 weeks: Scott and Saddam."

"The anti-Layden feeling was so strong in New York that when LeBron James was selected with the No. 1 pick in the draft last June, commissioner David Stern's announcement of the selection was drowned out by a loud chant of Fire Layden."

Recent poll on espn.com? So far, out of 7100 votes:

  • 83% think NYK waited too long to fire Layden.

  • Nearly 2/3 think Isiah won't be able to do anything because of the bad contracts

  • over 2/3 think Layden is to blame for NYK missing the playoffs the last 2 years

  • Over half think Doc Rivers should be their new coach.

Another Miscellaneous Post

Right now, the radio station WRSU 88.7 FM is playing a song called "Santa Please Don't Come On A Nuclear Missile For Christmas". This has got to be the most bizarre christmas song I've ever heard...

Saturday, I saw the final Lord Of The Rings film. Overall this is a great film and lived up to my expectations (how often can you say that about a movie?). There were, however, a few parts I didn't remember from the books. First, I totally forgot all Hobbits are gay (not that there's anything wrong with that). Secondly, I never realized that Frodo was banished from the Shire for turning against civilization in an attempt to keep the ring for himself. Don't get me wrong, I think the punishment was justified, I just didn't remember it, that's all. On a related note, it's good to see Sloth from the Goonies working again (Jackson cast him as the Orc leader).

For those still reading, WRSU is now playing "Rocking Disco Santa Claus". To listen yourself, click over to nj.com/wrsu

Lohan vs. Duff. Teen Queen Catfight. I was unfamiliar with Lohan until I saw her on Punk'd last night. She's way better than yo girl Duff. Little fiery redhead.

Also, Victoria's Secret stunner Adriana Lima got even more male blood boiling than usual at the glitzy grand opening of Marquee nightclub this week.

Trying to one-up the Sharpie

Chad Johnson, who has been fined twice recently by the NFL, after he scored a TD yesterday ran and grabbed a sign he had hidden behind a snow bank next to the end zone and held it up. It said "Dear NFL: Please don't fine me again".

New Orleans Saints receiver Joe Horn celebrated his second touchdown against the New York Giants on Sunday by making a cell-phone call in the end zone.

Michael Strahan on the Horn incident: "Are you kidding me?... It's like me getting a sack and pulling a potato sack out of my jock strap and draping it over myself."

New Jersey anti-trust lawyer Alan Milstein

may have found the loophole Maurice Clarett needs to enter the NFL draft this year:
When the rule was adopted in February 1990, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue issued a press release saying players could enter the draft only after "three full college seasons" had elapsed since their high school graduation. Over the past decade, the notion that players must wait three years has become widely accepted.

However, as noted by Clarett's attorneys, the formal language of Section 12.1(E) of the bylaws is: "For college football players seeking special eligibility, at least three NFL seasons must have elapsed since the player was graduated from high school."

Clarett graduated from high school early, on Dec. 11, 2001. That's eight weeks before the 2001 NFL season concluded, including the playoffs. So if one includes the league's 2001 season along with the 2002 and 2003 seasons, Clarett should be permitted to enter the upcoming draft, his attorneys contend.

"In Clarett's case, he would be ineligible under the press release rule but eligible under the Rule as actually drafted by the NFL," wrote Clarett's four-person legal team led by New Jersey anti-trust lawyer Alan Milstein.
I wonder if this will prompt more high schoolers to graduate early. The NFL is also arguing over the term elapsed "which it says means the end of a season that began after a player graduated." Clever. But when time elapses does it really matter when you started?

Friday Night Screening

Just got a private screening of a great indie film called The Tollbooth starring Marla Sokoloff. It's still in post production but I definitely recommend it and will let you know more as it evolves. It also stars Idina Menzel who we found to be most hot despite her ass's limited on screen appearance.

Film of the Year

Reader Johny Wahoo writes in to tell us that "The Hebrew Hammer" should win for best film of the year and best song too.

It says it premieres in theatres on December 19th, but Wahoo saw an advance screening on Comedy Central and can't stop talking about it. I haven't seen it but the combination of Adam Goldberg and 'Jewxploitation' has to be ridiculously funny.

I couldn't think of a worse place for a sports franchise

I mean this one tops Secaucus: Developer Bruce Ratner unveiled his plans yesterday to build a Frank Gehry-designed arena for the Nets basketball team near Downtown Brooklyn.

I once lived near there. They might as well just move it to Newark.
