76ers Pistons Basketball
Yeah, it was a long weekend

Really small slate of games tonight. Which sucks for me because I'm seemingly one of the eight people in the universe who just doesn't care about college football and isn't going to be watching the Oregon/Auburn game. Might have to fire up an old episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 or something. Any suggestions?

Here's something else solid to help kill some time: a skit from way back in 2002 featuring Samuel L. Jackson. The description on Youtube says "This is for anybody who likes hockey and Pulp Fiction." I say bullshit -- this is for anybody who likes comedy period.

"Do I look like a bitch??"

Worst of the Weekend in Pictures:

Knicks Lakers Basketball
Mike D'Antoni does not appreciate pantomimed chokings of his players

Knicks Lakers Basketball
All right, I know the Lakers are dark and evil and all that, but I didn't realize they were capable of blocking out the sun

Raptors Celtics Basketball
This begs the question: Who's Jar-Jar Binks? Harangody?

Cheerleader on the left: "Dammit, why did they have to sit him right by us??"

APTOPIX Timberwolves Spurs Basketball

Bucks Nets Basketball

Nets Wizards Basketball

Nationally Televised Games:
Rockets at Celtics, NBA TV, 7:30pm: Boston has lost 7 of its last 9 home games against the Rockets. Also, they're about to play 7 games in 13 days. Thank God Kevin Garnett is coming back soon.

All The Other Games:
Grizzlies at Bobcraps, 7pm: Well, since the coaching change, the Bobcraps are averaging almost 8 or 9 points per game higher than with Coach Brown. Well, that's swell. Now they're mediocre enough to be completely irrelevant but not hilariously bad. Yay?

Pistons at Bulls, 8pm: ...Seriously? Wow. It's a good thing we have the Carmelo trade rumors to talk about instead of suffering through watching this game. Oh, wait...

Um...someone more in touch with the entertainment world want to remind me who the bleached out girl is? That's just scary.

phelan -- That's apparently Michelle Trachtenberg. I had no idea who she was until I just now read her Wikipedia page and saw she played Nona on Pete & Pete when I was a kid. Talk about a blast from the past -- that show was awesome.

Michelle Trachtenbeg?! Buffy the Vampire Slayer's sister?

I guess you guy are fans of goth chicks. Sorry, Suicide Girls.

Blogger Dan B. said...
Bawful -- Yeah, never watched Buffy, sorry. And no, I'm not into the goth thing or the Suicide Girls. Don't mind paler skin on some girls, but damn, get out in the sun once in a while.

Michelle was hot in Eurotrip, which was a highly underrated comedy, especially for those who have done the whole Euro backpacking thing. Loved the Jules Winfield sketch. Where is that from?

Dawn Summers and a Knick? I thought they prevented the world from ending at the end of the show??

It was from the 2002 ESPY Awards.

(Unintentionally?) Homoerotic commentary from Gorman and Heinsohn during the Rockets/Celtics game.

Gorman: "I'm ready to explode if something happens!"

Heinsohn: "Me too, we can explode together!"

Oh also the only game I'm able to legitimately watch tonight is Memphis-Charlotte.

Fuck you:

- League Pass
- Canadian cable companies
- The NBA
- Memphis
- Charlotte

Good thing the internets has low-quality feeds of games that don't suck.

Also about 12 people showed up to the Charlotte game, it probably snowed two inches in North Carolina and every got a case of giant flapping vaginitis.. either that or they remembered how terrible Charlotte is.

The Other Chris -- Bruins at Penguins game is on Versus right now, thank God. For me at least, that means my evening = saved.

Blogger AnacondaHL said...
(Swoon) is amazing.

Sorry, this Oregon Auburn game owns.

Blogger Dan B. said...
Fffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Penguins completely collapse in last 3 minutes and blow a 2-0 lead to lose 4-2. Evening = ruined.

The funniest part of the last several Boston games is Big Baby of all people becoming the first option.

Nice work with the pics today Dan. :) (Swoon) made me lol at work :)

Michelle Trachtenberg? Damn... Still hot, but thats a change...

Why would the Nets take Carmelo?
It's not like they will make the playoffs... and he would flee as soon as he could... no?

I would like the Jazz to get Rip... he would fit nicelly in the Sloan system... and he sure must miss winning...
Could the Jazz pull an Ilgauskas on the Pistons using Kirilenko?

The NBA wants us to believe that 10,000 people were in attendance at the Cats-Grizz game. Here's what 10,000 fans look like:
