Damn. The weather is ugly right now.

Stand and Deliver: Greer Barnes

I just saw this guy for the first time on Comedy Central last weekend, but I'm going to keep an eye out for his name from now on. Ridiculously funny cat. His stage presence reminds you of one of your homies cracking jokes on the porch steps with you. Here he explains the benefits of having a European accent.

Two west coast legends talking about their beloved Lakers. I'm not sure how Cube got away with the black Dickies shirt and Snoop had to fit up in the bow tie and pony tail. They could have at least let him spread his perm.

Nike Foamposite Kryptonate

Nate Rob is the NBA story of the month and now he has some shoes to go with his 2009 run. Unfortunately these won't be easy to get.

They'll drop either Saturday the 14th of March, or, on St. Patrick's Day the 17th of March for about$185 at the House of Hoops in New York and select accounts in Asia will get them.

I haven't listened to this outside of the Ludacris song that I posted yesterday, but if you're a fan of down south music that's been hot recently, this mixtape should keep you happy for a week or two. I'm guessing there's about ten strip club anthems and some music you can sell drugs to. If you're a backpacker, this probably isn't for you.

Good Samaritan Rewarded with Ticket

Fresh from the department of "F**k the police," comes this story of a Denver bus driver who risked his life to save three people, and is now being punished for it.
DENVER – A good Samaritan who helped push three people out of the path of a pickup truck before being struck and injured has gotten a strange reward for his good deed: A jaywalking ticket.

Family members said 58-year-old bus driver Jim Moffett and another man were helping two elderly women cross a busy Denver street in a snowstorm when he was hit Friday night.

Moffett suffered bleeding in the brain, broken bones, a dislocated shoulder and a possible ruptured spleen. He was in serious but stable condition Wednesday.

The Colorado State Patrol issued the citation. Trooper Ryan Sullivan said that despite Moffett's intentions, jaywalking contributed to the accident.

Moffett had been driving his bus when the two women got off. In the interest of safety, he got out and, together with another passenger, helped the ladies cross.

Moffett's stepson, Ken McDonald, said the driver of the pickup plowed into his stepfather, but not before Moffett pushed the two women out of the way.

When he awoke in intensive care, he learned of the ticket. "His reaction was dazed and confused. I was a little angry," said McDonald.

The other man also was cited for jaywalking, while the pickup driver was cited with careless driving that led to injury. Sullivan said the two elderly women haven't been cited but the investigation is ongoing.

I really hope that in the coming days or weeks, the Colorado State Patrol throw away the charge. Was the guy partially in the wrong for helping the women to illegally cross the street? Yes. But isn't a bleeding brain, as well as numerous other serious injuries, more than enough punishment for that mistake?

Phil Ivey cleans Durrr out in cash game

On Monday Phil Ivey fell short of defending his WPT title for $1.7 million at the Los Angeles Poker Classic.

Yesterday he won a nice consolation prize, taking over $900k off of Tom "Durrr" Dwan in a head's up cash game on Full Tilt. The players were playing in the Thurnderdome and Ivey only bought in once, while Durrr continued to rebuy and bust out. Ivey was also sitting with over $400k in the nine-handed PLO/NLHE mixed high stakes game on Full Tilt.

Daily Dunk: Nate Robinson

Yes I agree this is Nate Rob overkill but when a player goes on the David Letterman show and dunks over a stageman, it deserves the Daily Dunk nomination. Looks like Nate the Great aka Kryptonate aka Nate Rob is taking his act to Hollywood.

High Stakes Poker Season 5 Teaser

Here's a good clip of a strong call down by Patrik Antonius. I'm not sure but I think these episodes will start airing on Fox Sports in the next week.


Fellas, pour out a little liquor. One of the world's foremost natural beauties, Adriana Lima, is now Mrs. Marko Jaric. Reports have come out that the two—she of Victoria’s Secret print and runway fame, and he of professional basketball fame—secretly wed on Valentine's Day.
"We are so excited about our future together," Lima told People, capitalized. "And we are really looking forward to a big romantic wedding this summer with all of our friends and family" ... and bloggers she may or may not mumbled underneath her breath.

Call me a hater, but I never like to see this type of thing. Ignorance is bliss, and secretly suspecting that you don't have a snowflake's chance in Hell will always be infinitely better than actually knowing that you don't have a snowflake's chance in Hell. This is exactly the type of thing that killed my relationship with my ex, Jessica.

Women, huh?

The victim was not harmed.

The challenge begins

Today Tom "Durr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius started their 50,000 hand face-off. The players will spread four tables of Omaha and NL Hold 'Em for 50k hands. If Dwan is ahead at the end of the match, he wins an additional $500k from Antonius. If PA is ahead, he wins $1.5 million.

So far at the end of 1,541 hands played today, the totals look like this:

durrrr's results: +$134,911
Patrik Antonius's results: -$135,209

You can see regular updates at Highstakesdb.

Summarizing the challenge:
The challenge, which is outlined in an upcoming issue of Bluff Magazine, basically consists of 50,000 hands of online heads up play spread across 4 tables with minimum stakes of $200/$400. Games being played would include both No Limit Hold Em' and Pot Limit Omaha.

The interesting part comes in the fact that Durrrr is willing to lay 3:1 on his money that he will be ahead by the end of the 50k hands. He's willing to post $1.5 million to his opponents $500,000.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Zach Randolph

Can we call Zach Randolph the Suge Knight of the NBA? I'm not sure what else to equate him to. He was blessed with a ton of talent, had everything in line to make an incredible career, yet somehow has screwed it all up.

Last night he decided to test out his spar game.

We can just blame Chrysler and GM for this one. Anytime an already failing company that has already received a ton of money in a recession asks for MORE money, we're in trouble. Good job guys.

Universal Cell Phone Charger

This past December I lost the charger to my cell phone one Friday night (don't ask), and my phone's battery died the following afternoon. Because my phone uses a charger that's rare this side of the Atlantic, I was stuck with an expensive plastic paperweight until a new charger could arrive from Nokia about a week later.

Somewhere out there, the cell phone gods must have heard the proficient, curse-laden rants that flowed from me during that week. 17 companies have agreed to adopt micro USB as a standard charger format.
The big savings for manufacturers and buyers will come in the sheer number of chargers that will no longer have to be bundled with handsets: The use of a standard format is predicted to result in a 50 percent reduction in the number of chargers that have to be produced and sold each year. That's significant.

The list of companies immediately signing on to the initiative reads like a who's who in the GSM cell phone space -- LG, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, AT&T, T-Mobile, Motorola -- but lacks a few key players, notably Apple, which is holding on to the legacy iPod connector with a veritable death grip. RIM and Palm are also both missing from the initial list of supporters.
