Daily Top 5 >>> 2/20/09

  • "Bounties" I don't care if she gave Chris Brown AIDS, ebola and the cooties. This dude is done. "It's just that bludgeon, bludgeon, that fist, fist." I'm putting a $1 million hit on monopoly money of course.
  • "Gonzo" Hunter S. Thompson died 4 years ago today. If you don't know who he is, Wikipedia him. Actually no, watch Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas. It's probably more accurate.
  • "Clairvoyance" Paxson had a good week this week. Great trades, freed up cap space for 2010, and, for anybody still griping about him not pulling the trigger on Amare Stoudemire, this breaks today. "Partially detached retina" sounds bad to regular people, but my dad, an optometrist, gave me some professional insight on the severity of the injury. Me: "Pops, you hear about Amare's detached retina?" Pops: "No way! God damn that's some heavy shit!"
  • "Safety" For anybody who's ridden one of the accordion CTA buses at 7:15 a.m. on a Tuesday on the way to school, this should come as no surprise. I'm no engineer, but having 20 feet of bus swiveling like 45 degrees in each direction on every turn probably isn't too good for the vehicle.
  • "Spring Benefits" It's probably already too late, but if you have free time and ducats this weekend go to Leaders.
