Furthermore, stop taking all those damn pictures! It's not like you're going to remember what you were looking at later, and honestly, none of your friends will know what the hell it is either. Besides, that picture you took standing a foot away from the beautiful Monet in the corner is not going to do it justice. All you're going to get is a nice digital picture of a bunch of random dabs of paint, and it won't really look like anything from a foot away. Idiot.

The latest example is a report by ESPN that Yi Jianlian won't play for the Milwaukee Bucks because the team is not "suitable for Yi's growth." An official from Yi's Chinese team was further quoted as saying, "The national team and the Olympic Games are now our key considerations ... If [Yi] goes to a team where he can't compete, that would be being irresponsible to the national team."
The Bucks need to take one for their country here. This is the National Basketball Association, not the International Developmental League, and neither China nor any other country should get to dictate where their players play. The NBA is not and should not be a farm system for the rest of the world.

I'm not sure how or why because I didn't have WGN and I wasn't from Chicago, but from that time on, my favorite baseball team -- actually, my favorite sports team -- has been the Chicago Cubs. But, I never made it to Chicago and Wrigley Field until this past weekend, and it certainly lived up to all of my expectations and more.
I've seen it in pictures a million times, but when I saw this sign, I knew I'd arrived.
Great seats, huh?
Just gorgeous. I think this picture will be my new wallpaper on my computer. But, lest you all think the only thing I did was go to Wrigley, I leave you with this, from Giordano's On Rush. Mmmm . . .
