I think this may be the greatest tennis serve of all time
Others are said to have made unreturnable serves, but that's just figurative talk. Those serves were difficult to return, but not impossible. But in this case Andy Roddick literally made an unreturnable serve.

UT blows another big lead against Kansas
Last week the 'Horns had 'em down by 16 in Lawrence, but lost. This time they had 'em down 32-10 in the Big 12 finale, just blowin' 'em out, and couldn't hang on! We're excited about this team here in Austin. We're starting four freshmen and a sophomore! The big question is, "How many years will Durant stay in school?"

300 sets the record for the best March opening of all time.
And it opened in fewer theaters than any of the next five on the list!

Last week's champ, Wild Hogs, is in fourth place, but far behind.

Halliburton moving headquarters to Dubai
"U.S. oil services giant Halliburton Co. will shift its corporate headquarters from Houston to Dubai, Chief Executive Dave Lesar said Sunday."

I assume they hope to have the move completed just before Cheney and Bush leave office.

He played Jim Carrey's co-worker in The Mask

I never met him, but Scoopy Junior spent a little time with him at a convention and said he was really a great guy

Weekend Box Office Results for March 9-11, 2007
Just as at the battle of Thermopylae, the Spartans led everyone to glory. While 300 was kicking ass, nearly doubling its estimate, people were flocking to the theater and most of the hold-overs exceeded estimates as well, some by a considerable amount. (Wild Hogs also had an excellent weekend, dropping only 29% from last week!)

Overall, the weekend was more than 50% above the comparable weekend last year, and about 35% above the 2005 comp.
