Basketball Is An Easy Sport

First we hear about the autistic boy who sunk 20 points in 4 minutes (and tied a school record for 3-pointers). Amazing story by the way, if you haven't already seen or heard about it.

Now this:

Girl banks 6, then births 6 pounder.

Suddenly, LeBron doesn't seem so amazing anymore.

What's next? A dunking gorilla?

Seems like the only ones who can't play basketball these days are the New York Knicks.

Adam, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your article on MSN today. I am 25 years young, and I have been flying by myself since the age of 5. I know where you are coming from. I can't believe how many amenities have been stolen! Peace

If and when cell phones are allowed during flights, I sure hope they offer non-cell flights. I don't want to hear your phone conversations.

It isn't often I let myself be manipulated and drawn in to the links on MSN, AOL, and all those other sites with neverending pop-ups. However, for whatever reason I found myself reading your article. Then for whatever reason, following it to your blog, then your profile. I'm guilty.

A gemini myself, a year younger, maybe this contributes to how much I was drawn in to your writing? And your point, of course, which interspliced with a sarcastic wit, is exactly how I would put it, just not as well.

And, I'm done. A long rant, all written for no real purpose, except from one human to another, letting you know I appreciate what you had to say. Thank you.

Adam,

I enjoyed your article on cell phones disrupting our relative peace on cross-country flights. It reminded me of an article I read some time back on a device that jams cell phone signals within several hundred feet that is illegal in the US but available, I believe, in Japan. The article mentioned that some overseas movie theaters were using these devices to make it impossible for self-centered, inconsiderate dolts to talk on the phone during movies (the cell phone simply can't ring). Have you heard of this? I'm thinking if they start allowing cell phones on flights I'm going to ask Santa for one of these things next Christmas.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm glad so many people enjoyed the article. (Except Fergie, who was upset I made fun of "My Humps." I'll have to take her out to dinner to make up for it.) I like writing this kind of piece. I've got a more serious, newsy one in coming out soon (today?), but I hope to have the chance to write some more fun articles in the future. Hopefully one that will involve me interviewing Jessica Alba.
