Tipping Off

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Everyone loves Jared and Taylor, but the most underrated force on "Kid Nation" is the awesomeness that is Alex, the Asian kid with dark glasses and one upper tooth. Watch for him jumping up and down and shrieking during tonight's (disgusting) showdown.
    • We ended the day in the office by watching "Yo Gabba Gabba!" on YouTube. There's a party in my tummy, oh yeah, oh yeah!
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • I never thought about the Metro thing, even as it cost me $6 or so to go from Grosvenor to Navy Yard. Good point, Steve.
    • My mom is taking part in a press conference with Reps. Hoyer, Emanuel, and others tomorrow morning. No matter how much I've asked, she refuses to berate Hoyer for his quashing of Kucinich's impeachment motion.
  • Your List Sucks!:
    • Preseason College Basketball Top 5:
      • Tennessee: Superstar Chris Lofton returns along with three other starters from a team that came one superhuman Greg Oden block from the Elite Eight last year.
      • North Carolina: All-American Tyler Hansbrough hopes to lead the Heels over the hump and into the Final Four. Though very talented, I still think this team is too soft.
      • Kansas: An exciting three-guard lineup will lead to fast breaks galore. Their lack of depth in the middle is not as big a weakness with so many great big men having gone to the next level, such as Oden, Al Horford, and Joakim Noah.
      • Memphis: Lost in the O.J. Mayo craziness was Derrick Rose, who was the top-rated point guard recruit. He joins returning stars Joey Dorsey and Chris Douglas-Roberts on a team that made the Elite Eight last year and the Final Four the year before that.
      • UCLA: Remember the name Kevin Love. He's the nephew of Beach Boy Mike Love, but more importantly for the Bruins, he's reminiscent of another Kevin, McHale. A great rebounder and passer, Love will add an offensive dimension the Bruins have lacked the last two seasons even with consecutive trips to the Final Four.
