- "UConn" I contemplated betting money on the Huskies twice in the past week: once during the Elite 8 on them to win the title, and then over the weekend on them beating the gimme 3.5-point spread. I coulda won twice. I'm not a fan of UConn, nor am I a Butler guy. Kemba Walker x Jeremy Lamb x Shabazz Napier are a fun backcourt to watch though, and that's all it took for me. So, sorry Max, but I'm happy with what happened last night. The second half bordered on comedy; I've never seen a team play as bad for as long as Butler played last night. 18% from the field is unreal at any level above 3rd-park district basketball. In the chip, man, I feel for Brad Stevens. Actually, no I don't. He's got a pretty good life. UConn should be Top 10 again next year with the whole frontcourt returning, as well as Napier and (fingers crossed) Lamb.
Chicago and the music Chicago claims were thick down at SXSW. Still mad I missed out. See if you can catch the Chet Haze sighting. Via Andrew.
- "Little Caesars" I like to believe that I'm a man of principles, however few those may be. One of those has been to avoid Little Caesars pizza at all costs. There's one a mile from my crib in Chicago, and I've never in 21 years of life set foot in the establishment. A ready-when-you-get-there slice of pizza is fine, but not a whole pie. I thought I was soundly set in my ways, but in about an hour I'll be on the IKEA couch in this apartment eating a $4 Hot-N-Ready cheese pizza and watching the Bulls blow the Suns out. I've learned a lot about myself out here.
- "Haste" I wish him the best of luck, but I don't get this. He's a freshman. His minutes - and numbers - were only gonna increase next year, but Jereme Richmond just declared for the draft. There probably will be a lockout next year, so he may get bailed out. If you've been to U of I, you'll know why he should stay.
- "Fuckery" Mister Cee had a big hand in Ready To Die. He's been a mainstay on the NYC rap scene for two decades. He also likes getting his dick sucked by men in drag right by the Holland Tunnel. Damn bro. I would say this is a career-ender, but the fake Rick Ross used to be prison police so who knows. Props TSS.
