2007 Las Vegas NBA All-Star Dance Team
Gee, I wonder which regular reader submitted this one. Had to be either Cheerleader Guy or Doctor Kissinger. (Hammerin' Hank, as I like to call him, lubs him some cheerleader poontang!)

UNREAL! An actual picture of the ABA's tallest player holding a basketball
This looks about proportionate to a normal hand on a softball.

The Long Beach State "Dirtbags"
An article in today's Austin paper had me dashing to my computer. The Longhorns baseball team, always a power, lost yesterday to Long Beach State. The article consistently referred to the the Long Beach baseball team as the Dirtbags, and I thought, "That's rude" until the umpteenth time it appeared, when I finally realized that Dirtbags was capitalized! Turns out the team hasn't officially changed its name to the Dirtbags, but that is what everyone calls them, including their own fans. The Long Beach State online store sells Dirtbags merchandise. As Mel Allen would say if he were here, "How about that?" Can the New Jersey Scumbags be far behind?

A QANTAS flight attendant faces the sack after being accused of having sex with British actor Ralph Fiennes in an aircraft toilet while flying from Australia to India.
I'm shocked, shocked to discover it was a FEMALE flight attendant.

Just kidding, but I'll tell you what. It must have been a good experience, because it's the first time I've ever seen the guy with a broad, natural smile.

Concept of the day: Tony Danza now starring as Max Bialystock in The Producers
This is not happening in a dinner theater in Syracuse, sandwiched in between a Robert Goulet set and the khaki-colored peas. No-o-o-o-o. This is Broad-fucking-way!

Wikipedia could shut within 3-4 months
"Wikipedia has the financial resources to run its servers for another 3-4 months, and that without further funding Wikipedia might disappear."

Never happen. Might have to sell out to someone who will develop it under a profit model, but won't shut. If nothing else, Google will buy it out of the petty cash drawer

One of the greatest commercials ever: Chicks Dig the Long Ball. Very funny perfomance from Tom Glavine.

Daily Box Office for Friday, February 9, 2007
Norbit opens with an excellent Friday - $10 million. Good for Eddie. Movie looks like it sucks, but sometimes the ball bounces funny, and Eddie deserves a few favorable bounces.

Hannibal is rising ever so slowly, with an opening day below $5 million

Cartoon Network boss resigns over Boston bomb scare
Yeah, who can deny that is was his fault that idiotic Boston officials thought some lite-brites to be a terrorist attack?

Nice series of photos taken on a night so cold the streets were eerily empty

A marvelous and beloved screen moment: the opening sequence to The Muppet Movie, as sung and played by that notable left-handed banjoist Kermit T. Frog

Pop Culture Palace is updated with the 1961 background events
I watched the four-minute movie newsreel on Kennedy's inauguration. Man, that'll take you back, although you keep expecting announcer Ed Herlihy to sell some Kraft cheese.
