Things that suck: These guys

Better luck next year, Coach Calhoun. You got cheated by these do-nothings. How is a team supposed to win games when A) nobody has the balls to take it to the rim, and B) you can't hit 60% of your free throws?!

Jeff Adrien has to be pissed - if these guys played with half his mental toughness, he'd be talking to an agent right now about landing a second-round selection in the NBA draft.

Dear Hasheem Thabeet: You're bigger than everyone else on the court. Just stand up straight on defense, Jake Voskhul style. And this offseason, do us all a favor and work on your footwork on offense. You're a soccer player, it should come easy to you. DUNK, DUNK, DUNK next year.

Things that suck: Devil's in the details

So, I'm sure by now you've all heard about and seen the new Topps baseball card that's generating all the buzz these days. But just in case, click on the card for a larger version - there are two things wrong with this picture:
  1. President Bush doesn't have horns growing out of his head.
  2. Derek Jeter's stance is reversed.
  3. Mickey Mantle doesn't have a drink in his hand.
I want to make one comment about this card. One. I'm sorry, but I could have done a better job using PhotoShop to superimpose those two. I mean, seriously! The President has ONE ARM!

Things that suck: Sellouts

John Ashcroft, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales that blasted the upcoming merger between XM and Sirius. Which is fine, it's his right to do so if he thinks that the merger will hurt the consumer in the end. However, as is the case much of the time, there were other reasons for his passionate plea to strike the deal down:
[Ashcroft] approached XM in the days after the merger was announced offering the firm his consulting services, a spokesman for XM said, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

The spokesman said XM declined Ashcroft's offer to work as a lobbyist for the company, the Journal reported.

Ashcroft was subsequently hired by the National Association of Broadcasters, which is fiercely opposed to the merger. On its behalf, he conducted a review of the effects on competition if the two satellite radio companies were allowed to merge, the Journal reported.

Sellouts! Let the eeeeagles they've never sooooared before...
