Lookin' for a girl I ran into a guy. His name is M.C.A., I said, "Howdy" he said, "Hi".

Quick Hitters and Random Thoughts

--I hate to be the bearer of the worst news you'll hear all week, but Flight of the Conchords is following the lead of the British Office and Extras. Yep, the 2nd season of Conchords will be the final season of Conchords. Apparently the boys are having trouble coming up with the 10 new episodes. Jemaine telling some magazine you've never heard of, "We've got a lot of half-songs. We've got an album's worth of beginnings of songs." recently came up with its top 25 sports movies since 1983. At #25 we find my favorite Cheech/Costner collaboration Tin Cup. I never considered Better Off Dead a sports movie, but they consider it # 24. Whoa, whoa, whoa Karate Kid isn't top 10? The Billy Zabka vehicle was # 23. That's B.S. He Got Game is 22 while the White Men Can't Jump is 21. Who wins in a in their prime match between Jesus Shuttlesworth and Sidney Deane? Some apparently acid-inspired The Triplets of Belleville is 20. Somehow Love & Basketball is 19 then Bend It Like Beckham. The hilarious Kingpin is 17. God bless Vanessa Angel.

Never seen Without Limits at 16. At 15 we get Miracle, The Rookie, Seabiscuit, Jerry Maguire and Hoop Dreams. I've seen two of those and I thinked I picked the right two. Into the top 10 we find Cars, which apparently is a sports movie. The Hurricane at 9. Ru-dy! Ru-dy! Sean Astin deserved an Oscar. I'm liking the choice of Eight Men Out at 7. Can't argue with Cinderella Man at 6 or Bull Durham at 5. I hate Friday Night Lights at 4. The book is awesome, the movie not even close. Why they changed parts of the book for the movie I'll never understand. Don't need Million Dollar Baby at 3. The last thing Ray Liotta didn't appear bloated in, Field of Dreams at 2. You will get no argument from me for their #1 sports movie since 1983. Ladies and Gentlemen, let me bring out Coach Norman Dale, Shooter, Cletus, Opal, George, Rollin, Jimmy and the rest of the boys. Hoosiers is your # 1.
And from this shot on white people ruled the game of basketball.

--Victoria's Secret has a new Secret Angel and it be the lovely Doutzen Kroes.

--ESPN is looking into a late night talk show with either Colin Cowherd, Jason Whitlock or Dan LeBatard as host? Good God, you're better off showing First and 10 or First Take or Cold Pizza or whatever the hell that crap is...or was...maybe it's still on, I don't know.

--Diddy can eat a **** for his whining YouTube about how he can't afford to fly on his private jet because of gas prices. Diddy: "But right now, I am actually, can you believe it, I am actually flying commercial. That’s how high gas prices are ok, so I feel you. Look, I’m at the gate right now. This is really happening. This is proof that gas prices are too high" As well as proof that you're a d-bag who has no real idea how gas prices are affecting real people, you f'n self-absorbed jackass.

--Michael Phelps and Carrie Underwood?! Phelps is also doing a spot on Entourage as well as SNL's premiere.

--Paquaio/De La Hoya at 147 come December. I know Manny is coming up a lot and I know not a lot of people are giving Manny a chance to go that high up after just one fight at 135, but Manny is winning that fight.

--My boy Marcel from Top Chef was popped for DUI last weekend. Padma bailed him out....well not really, but hey look it's Padma!

--You'd think it'd be great news that The Office is getting its own movie. Unfortunately it's not the English or the British version. It's the German version. Now how the hell do I get my hands on Das Office? My two years of German at UH might finally pay off.

--The Bratz whore dolls have to slut it up to come up with $100 million to pay Mattel. Mattel sued MGA because the guy who came up with the idea for whorish dolls for little girls did so while employed by Mattel. And Mattel like other C.P.O.D.s knows how to draw up with a contract. Mattel was looking for over a billion dollars, but will have to scrape by with just that $100 mil.

--CBS is gonna dump EliteXC and UFC might get back in the picture?!

--Dammit Don, why you gotta bag on January Jones when she's good enough to put on a bikini? And holy crap how sad was it when Duck opened the door and let his dog go?

--Hell hath no funny like people who like drafting crazy wills. A Brooklyn couple was murdered last month and drafted some rather interesting wills. We'll start with Mark Schwartz who started with leaving his brother "Robert, brothers are supposed to want each other to be the most they can be and make the most money they can. You, on the other hand, just sat in judgment of me and were always jealous."
But he wasn't a complete jerk dead Mark said, "I, on the other hand, only wished you the best and to win the lottery. "So, Robert, you have a choice, you can come to my grave site to say hello out of love or piss on me for not giving you money."
This is why dead wife and husband originally got together because his wife left this to her family, "With regard to my estranged family who were never there for myself or my children, but always there for their distorted version of Catholicism, I give and bequeath the sum of $1 each to my" mother, father, two brothers and sister "and request that they donate same to their precious church to whom they had a greater allegiance, than to their first child and sister."
Husband was cool to his friends, "This gift is conditioned upon each of them not telling their respective wives of said gift so they may not get their hands on same."
Yeah, too bad none of the wills were signed originals because you know, those could be enforced. Instead some mutual friend named Bobby was simply named executor given $50,000 and husband's guns and knives. Oh and Bobby was also written to in one of dead husband's wills and what was said to him?
""To Bobby, never will your gun shoot when you need it."
I'm no CSI, however I'd question Bobby, but that's just me.

--Oh boy love that Dr. Lou segment.

Questions, comments or if you remember where you were when the guy who drafted Rudi Johnson this weekend followed it up with Desmond Clark and since the sticker was stuck...well, the deed was done...
