- "Naledge" Chicago Picasso dropped last week and I have no idea how I forgot to give you all the link. In all honesty though, you should have this already.
- "Ron Artest" He's a nutcase, a bad rapper, and has a mean right cross, and come this time next year he may have a championship ring. The Lakers, as much as it hurts for me to say this, have a stacked lineup right now. Kobe, Lamar Odom, Artest, Gasol, Bynum. Wow. Over/under at 62 wins?
Props to The Big Lead. This guy in the video is Arland Bruce, a receiver in the CFL. The "touchdown celebration" he does is what he calls a Michael Jackson tribute. I have no clue what this guy looks like b/c he plays in the CFL, but if I ever did realize I was in his presence I'd help him make his death impersonation a little more realistic.
- "Funerals" All I know about Mike's memorial is that there are about 18,000 tickets available through a "random lottery" and that it's going to be an absolute circus. Seeing as 18,000 is like .05% of MJ's fan base in the country, I can't understand how officials expect people who don't get into the Staples Center not to riot. I hope TMZ streams it. Hopefully it's a little less bizarre than James Brown's funeral, for some reason I doubt that though.
- "Barack" He scored some major points with me today. For some reason, in an Associated Press interview, B-Rock was asked the age-old (and asinine) question: "Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant?" The President answered correctly. There was probably more pressure on him to get this one right than anything about foreign policy or health care. If he'd said Kobe, he could've never come back to Chicago.
