Today is Earth Day. Even if you decide to read this tomorrow, today is still Earth Day. That’s because every day of this month is Earth Day!
That’s right! It’s time we stop the annual one day appreciation of the Earth and start appreciating it one Month every year!
Except, I just realized it is the 23rd of April, hence there are only nine more days left in the month. And, considering it’s about 3:00 PM already, that means today’s pretty much a bust. So, we could start Earth Month tomorrow! Except, I just realized I have a dentist appointment at 8:00 AM and after that I’m pretty much useless.
Okay then, we start on Friday, and while that technically shrinks Earth Month into an Earth Week, we can focus more on the days ahead.
Except, it looks like we’re going to have to focus on staying dry, because the weather next week looks like it’s going to be raining shit-cats and ass-dogs.
No fun appreciating the Earth if it doesn’t appreciate our appreciation, right? What good is an Earth Day if the earth doesn’t even want you to go outside and enjoy it, right?
Earth might as well sprout a tree in the shape of a giant middle finger, because all the Earth seems to be saying is a big “F*** You” to us would-be Earth Day celebrators. That’s great, Earth. Let’s see how much you love us when I pour this bottle of bleach into your soil!
I just finished reading Jeff Pearlman’s "Showtime" and I recommend it to any fan of basketball, sports-writing, and/or human beings. It takes a lot of people to create something legendary, and it’s great that authors like Pearlman have the insight to track them down and interview them (I particularly enjoyed hearing about Wes Matthews’ -father of the Trail Blazers’ Wesley Matthews- contributions to the Showtime era, including his hired intimidation of Xavier McDaniel.)
I’m not talking about a man’s hind parts. I’m referring to the trend of hipster males attempting to look like a samurai. A dude bun only sounds appropriate if it contains sesame seeds, and knowing Portland, many of the dude buns probably do. I don’t even like to say the phrase “dude…
I am writing on this show (unless they say “NO! NOT ANYMORE”). It’ll be great. Just look at that line-up! I don’t even have to convince you! Why am I still typing! Just look at that line-up and stop looking at these words.
I am fascinated by Dwayne Wade’s thought process in this clip. After making a tough lay-up, Lance Stephenson stares down Wade (the two got into a small skirmish earlier in the game, both receiving technical fouls), and Wade stares right back. Stephenson turns his back. Wade then chuckles, probably thinking “what a goofball” and a brief second passes before he reminds himself “Oh yeah, I’m a ten time all star/NBA Champion…MOM!He just looked at me!"
Lance Stephenson gets ejected for being Lance Stephenson.
