- "Stormin' Norman" A somber R.I.P. to Bulls legend Norm Van Lier. He was found dead today in his near-West Side home. He was a great player and a great analyst; Norm never made any qualms about who he was rooting for. I came up with him reveling in the glory of the Jordan-Pippen era, and Bulls basketball will never be the same.
- "Helen Thomas" She's speaking on campus today at 5:15. If you don't know who she is, Wikipedia her. Her accomplishments are pretty amazing, but what's more remarkable is the fact that she's still working at 90 years old. I figured I'd check her out b/c odds are there aren't too many more public speaking engagements in her future. *This was the best picture I could find of her, trust me.
- "Tiger" How the hell was he still ranked #1 in the world after taking a year off? Was golf just not being played while Tiger rehabbed his knee, or did everyone just realize he'd still win 7 or 8 tourneys with one working knee? Anyways, seeing as he came back this week and immediately birdied, my theory is that he underwent a $6 Million Man-surgery and is no longer technically human.
- "Chappelle's Show" Here's ESPN's Doug Gottlieb showing just how huge Chappelle's Show continues to be and will always be. Forward to the 8:00 mark to hear the priceless audio. He botched his golden opportunity though. It's "Game........blouses...," Doug. Not "Game Blouses!".
- "LeBron" Just because.
