FINAL FOUR BABY!


‘If history repeats itself, I’ll take it,’ coach Jay Wright says of Villanova’s pursuit of its second national title.

“The play that put Villanova in the Final Four [and beat Pitt 78-76] should be known as the Dual Homage,” writes SI.com’s Luke Winn. “The inbounds pass to Dante Cunningham was in the same style of the bomb that Valparaiso threw to Bill Jenkins — to set up Bryce Drew — in 1998, in that both teams entered the ball to a leaping big man rather than the shooter. And the three-quarter-court race that Scottie Reynolds (left) went on after receiving the ball from Cunningham was reminiscent of the mad dash that UCLA‘s Tyus Edney used to beat Missouri in 1995. What sets Reynolds’s play apart is what was at stake: Nova’s first trip to the Final Four since 1985 — not just a win in the first weekend of the dance.” – Luke Winn

This is how I roll into Philly for race weekend.

Watch this.

And an interview with Jay Wright and more of the game-winning play.


stupendous. snuggie.

February 10, 2009

Who knew that Grandma was so hip? The Twin and I received Snuggies for xmas!

Of course, everyone was jealous.

The Twin: “Also, how have you never heard of the snuggie?? it’s on infomercials non-stop.  one of my friends just calls it a backwards robe.  which is pretty true.  and they’re kinda cult-y, but they sure look comfy!”

Although, they kind of look like another kind of robe, of royal emperor variety..

Check out Kimberdoodle in the Snuggie on Facebook. Contain your obvious jealousy!

Also, any bets on whether or not Hassel will notice yours truly wearing the Snuggie during MP4 class tomorrow?

Happy Super Sunday!

Today rivals Thanksgiving in terms of food intake. So the big question is, what to eat?

Might we suggest some bacon? With a side of bacon?


No doubt you’ve seen the Bacon Explosion by now. “Two pounds of bacon woven through and around two pounds of sausage and slathered in barbecue sauce.” Includes 500g of fat. Somehow, we’re guessing it’s not the ‘good fat’.

The Bacon Explosion – Take Bacon. Add Sausage. Blog. – NYTimes.com

Perhaps you’re going for more of a wow factor? Behold:

Snack food stadium! Includes bacon! (Thanks Jared).

TOTAL CALORIES: 24,375
TOTAL GRAMS OF FAT: 1,285
TOTAL COST: $86.47
TOTAL DELICIOUSNESS: PRICELESS!

And perhaps you are now craving dessert? BOOM:

Want to hear something crazy? The guy who sells this is a vegan. A VEGAN!

Breakfast of Champions

Go Cardinals BACON!

Now, off to the bike shop and will hopefully be returning with this:

Oh, and I think I just signed on to the ‘Reach the Beach‘ relay — 200 miles in 24 hours, the longest running relay race in the country, Sept 12-13. Damn law school kids — my future in-house council may not have my best interests in mind.

Update: meet Ridley, the new love of my life.

QOTD:
rebel2524: i was just checking out dpnation
rebel2524: internet stalking is the way of the future

On notice!
rebel2524: for your “on notice” section…i would recommend “fat people in bikinis”.  Seriously.  There isn’t a woman in the world who doesn’t look at herself in the mirror before leaving.  So when you looked, what made you think that 7 extra rolls looked good?
