We get Nicole Eggert today because something needed to be done to ease the burden of having to see that Scott Brown layout every time you come over here. She was also on a TV show with Scott Baio who we'll get to in just a second. Also, 16 year old Vandelay was madly in love with her, so there's that.
Chachi - A fascinating development has taken place over on Scott Baio's Twitter page. Apparently, he likes to use the forum to carry out his conservative agenda which is fine. Then he decided to post an "unflattering" picture of Michelle Obama which spawned a bunch of people to call him racist and there may have even been a death threat or two. Good times. This in turn led to pretty much a complete meltdown of Scott Baio defending himself. I realize that nobody cares about this but there was this one tweet that cracked me up...
-I'm NOT racist for posting a pic of M.O. My WIFE'S BEST FRD IS BLACK,HELLO
So this is good news for all you racists out there. Now you don't even need your own black friend to cover up your racism...all you have to do is marry someone with a black friend! Awesome.
Speaking of Racism - This is probably news that's surprising to absolutely nobody but a man named Moose has decided that we need a whites only basketball league and get this...it'll be in 12 cities in the south! Money quote...
"I don't hate anyone of color," he told the Augusta Chronicle. "But people of white, American-born citizens are in the minority now. Here's a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like."
You want fundamental basketball yet you exclude Timmy Duncan? I call foul.
Deferring To You Cats - Can somebody who hasn't worked in like 5 years but managed to eat, drink, golf, and basically do whatever they wanted because of TDI, unemployment, and welfare really celebrate what happened in Mass a couple days ago because it will finally put a stop to socialism? I mean, is there any justifiable scenario by which that should occur?
Quarterback Driven League - Here's an interesting comparison of two quarterbacks' rookie seasons. One of them is going to the AFCC on Sunday. The other didn't do quite as well...
JaMarcus Russell, 2008-09 (15 Games): 198-for-368, 2,423 yards, 13 TDs
Mark Sanchez, 2009-10 (15 Games): 196-for-364, 2,444 yards, 12 TDs
Not much a difference as you see but if you must know...the guy going to the AFCC threw 12 more picks.
One Quick Grievance - Okay, I realize that it's very hard for true altruism to exist as any kind, selfless act generally will lead to one feeling better about themselves and then it will cease to be selfless. However...can people cool it with telling me that they donated or intend to donate money to Haiti? Look...everyone feels terrible and every one except maybe Scott Baio wants to help but over the past week I can't help but get this feeling that there are tons of people out there who have no interest in donating because they want to help. They want to donate because they want people to tell them what a good person they are for wanting to help and it disgusts me. So...sterben to those people.
After the jump, there may or may not be video of me rapping. Could go either way, really.
