Roch Smith Jr. entered the Chevy Tahoe make-your-own-commercial contest, but I’m pretty sure his entry isn’t quite what the folks at Chevy had in mind….

Not to be outdone by Vice President Cheney’s “contract rider” specifying how his travel lodgings are to be prepared, medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer offers us kynge richardes rydere! And, being a king, Richard apparently is not shy about making his wants and needs known: “ITEM. yn the hal shall be sette the biggeste damne throne that yow kan fynde.”

“Arguing with nonexistent people”

Filed under: Weird — Lex @ 9:41 pm

I’ve no formal training in psychology, but I understand that this can be considered a symptom of psychosis.

Also: What else are the nonexistent people telling him? Inquiring, and worried, minds want to know.

Heels ‘n’ hurt … and the Wildcats

I’m with Tony — I also can’t talk about the game yet, and I also think Adam Lucas can’t talk about it a helluva lot better than I can’t talk about it.

(I went to bed midway through the first half with a raging migraine, and it probably was best for all concerned that I did.)

Meanwhile, over at the Stinging Nettle, DrFrankLives has a nice appreciation of both my Davidson Wildcats’ effort against Ohio State and the larger significance of schools like Davidson’s getting into the NCAAs.

The kind of men we want them to grow up to be

If you’re the parent of a son, you need to read this. And when Hooper gets old enough to understand these points, I’m fortunate that I won’t have to reach outside our family to find an illustrative example for him.

“David Noel just let Lee Melchionni take him off the dribble which is sort of like losing to Stephen Hawking in a footrace. “

Best. UNC-Duke recap. EVER.

If it’s a year ending in 6 …

… then Davidson must be goin’ to The Dance!

(OK, technically Davidson did go in 2002, but work with me here.)

UPDATE: Over at The Stinging Nettle, DrFrankLives reminds us of some important history: “Last time we played them [Ohio State, Davidson’s first-round opponent this week], they used an ineligible player (for whom they have just now been sanctioned). We lost by 5 points. Guess who scored five points.

“So, by all rights, WE should have represented the Albuquerque Regional in the 2002 Final Four.”

Heh. Indeed.

“I made my own cartoon!”

And so she did. She describes it as a girl trying to pull a sheath dress off over her head and getting it stuck just over her nose and under her eyes.
