• It's not even five minutes into the new "Ghost Whisperer" and the better half is already yelling out "Fuck you!" to the television. Not even the voice of Micheal Savage up here in the second-floor computer room can drown out her cries of rage coming from the first-floor living room. What's going on with this show? Don't ask.
"Ghost Whisperer." Michael Savage. No wonder kkk Jr. decided to off herself in the womb.
• I don't pay much attention to the NBA and the money issues of teams. I do hear about how some teams are more concerned with clearing salary cap room than trying to be competitive on the court, and I guess if you are trying to think "big picture" then it might be necessary. But seriously, if you are a Knicks fan, why would you even bother following this team for the next several years?
The New York Knicks traded Zach Randolph and Jamal Crawford in separate deals Friday, parting with their two top scorers to free up coveted salary-cap space for the summer of 2010. Crawford was sent to Golden State for forward Al Harrington. Hours later, Randolph was shipped to the Los Angeles Clippers along with reserve guard Mardy Collins for Cuttino Mobley and Tim Thomas.
I mean, I've constantly heard the "wait 'till next year" often enough, especially since the Pirates are my hometown team (actually, they don't even bother to say that anymore), but to dump players and free up cap room for the possibility of getting a big name in 2010?!
Then again, I don't live in an NBA city, so what do I know? I'm sure the people they traded away probably won't make the Knicks much better than they would be without them. Who knows. Who cares.I remember back in the 1990s some people actually thought Shittsburgh could support a professional basketball team. Too bad they could never get enough people to attend an NBA preseason game. Oh, and then there was some minor-league team called the Piranhas that lasted a season or two.
Check that. Make it a season. Hey, at least they made it to the finals in their year of existence.
Hmm, there is also a Pittsburgh Piranhas women's hockey organization. OK.
