Are you feeling me???



I'm having trouble focusing today. I'm just too excited about tonight's opening of Big Momma's House 2. He's a cop...he's a woman...he's old...he's fat...AND it's a sequel (because so many questions went unanswered in the original). I'm used to most movies being formulaic, but this is such a bold move to try to incorporate EVERY formula all into one. They were going to have Martin change races too and play a cop disguised as an old, fat, white woman, but the studios decided that it would just be too much comedy for one audience to handle...

Catching up from last night...

UCLA and Oregon played a really ugly game on Fox Sports last night. UCLA scored only seven points in the first 13 minutes of the second half. But then in the last seven minutes of the second half, they held Oregon without a field goal. UCLA won the brickfest 56-49, and for now is in sole possession of first place in the Pac 10. Unfortunately for basketball fans, there were no other college games to turn to during the 7:30-9:30 time slot, as every Fox sports channel was showing this game. Cal was hosting Washington at the same time, a game that Cal led most the way and held on to win 71-69, although there is no video evidence to support that claim. I'm assuming that one of the reasons (besides saving money) FSN chose to put UCLA/Oregon on every channel , is because the Oregon cheerleaders usually rival USC as hottest in the country. However last night, half of the squad was wearing uniforms that you'd expect to see in a junior high jazz dance class. Very disappointing, and Karma made them pay...

After Kobe went off for 81, there were floods of commentary that said that many players could score 81 points if they were the only player on their team and decided to take over. One of the players put on such a list was Ray Allen. Well, last night in the Sonics/Mavs game, Luke Ridnour, V. Radmanovic, and Reggie Evans were all out, and the Sonics needed Ray Allen to take over. He responded by shooting 9-21 from the field, including 2-11 from 3 pt land and scoring 25 points. He also missed some wide open 3 pt shots down the stretch while the game was still close. I like Ray Allen, and everyone is entitled to an off night of shooting- but Kobe scored 61 in three quarters against the Mavs. Against the same defense, Ray-Ray should have at least put up half of that over the course of a full game...

The Celtics traded Ricky Davis, Mark Blount, Marcus Banks, and Justin Reed to Minnesota for Wally Sczerbiak, Michael Olowokandi, Dwayne Jones, and a future #1. I don't know if Danny Ainge made the team any better; but he did make them a little bit whiter, so I'm sure he's proud. His vision of rebuilding the Celtics as a "vanilla" roster is near completion...

I don't usually watch hockey until the playoffs, so I'm not all that qualified to speak on the subject. But reviewing a couple headlines from yesterday left no doubt that hockey players are the toughest in sports:
"Forsberg out two games with torn groin."
"Pacers' O'Neal to miss 8 weeks with groin injury."

Finally, I have to apologize. I made three basketball picks, but didn't post them here. I went 1-2, so those going opposite my picks would have been +1 for the day. My bad.

U of O does have some hot cheerleaders. A sleeper in the pac-10 is the OSU dance squad. They wear these tight-ass black pants are especially hot for chicks who live in corvalis.

Great line about no video evidence for the Cal/UW game! So maybe I shouldn't have to be in a bad mood anymore.
