But For Now, I'd Like To Ask You How You Like The Feel of Ron Artest In Our Crowd!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ron Artest?! Really?!

Yeah, I was just a little bit excited when I turned to the monitor saw John in Humble's text that read "Breaking News - Ron Artest a Rocket." As calmly as I could I looked at the Chron's web site and saw Feigen with the details. Cooly I interrupted Adam Wexler jabbering about something or other and explained to him why July 29th, 2008 was the first day of the rest of our lives. I'm so excited it's ridiculous. Look I know Ron Artest has had his piece of crap moments and domestic violence charges are very bothersome. But he has been better lately, which may not be saying much, but what I am saying is that he's going to be just fine here. The Rockets are going to be just fine and now are serious, legitimate title contenders. F'n unbelievable the magic that Morey weaves (now head to Union Station and talk some sense into Ed Wade). I love Donte Greene and he's going to be great, not just good, but great. And yet I do this trade every day of the week. Ron Artest is a Rocket. Holy F'n Sh**!!!!
Seems nice enough.

Here he is helping Rip keep his mask on.

That's right we're # 1!!!!

Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts

--How 'bout my man Antonio Margarito!!! What a performance! Love both of those guys, but Margarito's heart and chin are an extremely difficult combination to defeat. Not even the great and undefeated Miguel Cotto could do it. Thanks Antonio and thanks public for making Antonio +200 on the money line.

--Always a great trip to Vegas and this one full of celebrity sightings...such luminaries like Lou Ross from Hell's Kitchen and other less famous people like Johnny Chan, Jamie Sharper, Paul Pierce, O.J. Mayo, and the hottest blonde prostitute in Vegas. Oh and Stephen A. Smith who sat waaay behind us. Thanks HBO. Best. Boxing Trip. Ever.

--Nice job X-Files movie. It's one thing to have your opening weekend not top Dark Knight or a Will Ferrell movie, but damn your opening weekend was behind Mamma Mia's second weekend?! You know maybe waiting all these years before finally doing a movie wasn't the right way to go.

--The Emmys are going to be hosted by the five nominees in the Reality TV Host category. Which means Heidi Klum!!!...and also Seacrest, Jeff Probst, Tom Bergeron and Howie Mandel. Ummm, Deal or No Deal is a reality show?

--Shia LaBeouf is finally making it. Arrested for DUI over the weekend.

--First, I didn't know Mobile, Alabama was home to the nation's oldest Mardi Gras celebration since 1703. Second, I didn't know Mobile has two distinctly separate celebrations. One for white people and one for black people. The Order of Myths is a new movie exploring that story. Note to Mobile: It's 2008.

--I am so down for Jurassic Fight Club on History. By the way, if you haven't been paying attention it's Shark Week.
Love Air Jaws.

--It really is kinda messed up that the Olympics has to set up a sex determination lab.

--Even though I've barely dug into NCAA '09 I can't wait for Madden so I cannot play that either!!!

--Nice job Army. How f'n ridiculous is it that Army jerked around 7th round Detroit draftee Caleb Campbell? Look whether or not you agreed with the "old" policy allowing him to get out of active duty to serve as a recruiter if he made the Lions, it's just ludicrous that the Army months later sends Detroit a letter saying there's been a change in policy and now Caleb has to serve. Seems to me that each of the service branches should have the same policy when it comes to this, but that does seem logical so that's out.

--It's always nice to have people to root for come Olympics time even if they aren't American. Simeon Williamson will rep England in the 100m. His grandmother Pearline is 78-years-fast. It seems a woman snatched Pearline's purse not knowing who she was messing with. Grandmothers tell stories better than I can:
"The thief must have thought I was an easy touch because I'm elderly. When she took my purse I had to do something so I ran after her and grabbed her as hard as I could.
She said she hadn't taken it at first, so I shook the life out of her until she finally gave it back.
It makes me so mad when people try to take your things, back in my day you had to work so hard for every penny."

--Welcome back Mad Men and ladies of Mad Men...

--How awesome was that WNBA fight last week?! Manu Ginobili thinks Lisa Leslie flops. I love when Rick Mahorn started getting blasted from behind by Delisha. Hilarious. Good times to see Mahorn and Laimbeer throw down one last time. Then 50-year-old Nancy Lieberman joined Detroit on a 7-day contract. Oh boy! WNBA is must-see TV!

--No, Carl Landry you're not going to Europe.

--Eastern Kentucky wide receiver Davin Walker was busted earlier this month for shoplifting at Wal-Mart. He was seen on surveillance throwing items into his backpack. When confronted he ran and in the process lost his shoes and his backpack. For good measure he ran into an old lady who ended up almost losing the tip of her thumb. So what was Davin stealing? A cell phone battery charger (okay, that's understandable). Anything else? Oh yeah, a box of douches and a bottle of female hygiene spray. Yeah Davin, the only thing more embarrassing than having to buy that stuff is getting busted stealing that stuff.

--You know when you hear about South Los Angeles you mostly think of violence. Well it seems the violence is committed by fatties. A proposal has passed the first hurdle that would place a moratorium on new fast food restaurants from opening up in the area.

--Fantasy football alert! Roger Goodell this week will announce any discipline for Broncos WR Brandon Marshall for all his run-ins with the law.

--A Hairspray sequel?!

--Start hoarding your psychadelic drugs as Tim Burton has found his Alice for the aptly named Alice in Wonderland. Mia Wasikowska is young Alice. I think Alice was the last non-related sports book I've read and that was a year ago, but that is one crazy ass book.

--Finally the NCAA is addressing the key issues. That's right, the NCAA is going to take a long look at adding women's beach err, sand volleyball as a sport. Go ahead and give Brazil the gold now.

Questions, comments, or if you saw that girl go to the airplane lavatory barefoot and automatically assumed she was a Titans fan...
