NETWORK MOMENT: Muggings, Then and Now, An Analysis Conducted During Work Hours

September 20th, 2012 · No Comments

If Shark played baseball, stupid ESPN would call him N-Darg.
That would be true regardless of what sport he played, because sportscasters and players are uncreative nimrods.
Whatever happened to the days of Sleepy Floyd and Refrigerator Perry? Also, you can’t let players come up with their own nicknames just because you lack the [...]

Via NPR, a story on what’s next for NASA that points out without a hint of irony (it would seem) that a member of the panel that recommended to Obama that NASA cancel Constellation is also the head of a rocket company:

November 17th, 2009 · 1 Comment
