Look Alikes: Freddy Garcia & The Rock

Exactly Alikes: KGB & KGB

I really would have loved to have been at the brainstorming session for this company's name.

I am going to start a rival text messaging answer service. The name?:

Remember AOL? That used to be the shit. Keeping up with your bootleg-ass profile. Instant messaging within the actual program. (Parents) Paying $29.95 a month for service. Figuring out how to have the computer say hello and goodbye to the person you were talking to. Chatrooms. A/S/L checks.

Nowadays, my AOL mail is a spam haven. Like I would say 7% of the mail I get on it is legitimate. Actually, now way. More like 0.5%. Maybe it's because my AOL email is the one I put down for bullshit offers.

Anybody Read Lips?

Here's the backstory:
Final seconds of the Cavs-Bulls game tonight. Cavs up by 3. Lebron gets fouled. Sometime before the foul he hurts his arm. He takes his first free throw. Makes it. Takes the next one left-handed (presumably because his right arm hurts too much). Misses it. Bulls call timeout. Camera zooms in on Cavs huddle. Stays there for awhile. As Lebron is coming out, this happens:

He's talking to someone who appears to be walking by. It looks like he is saying something along the lines of:


"Oh, my arm something something something something"

"Is he fucking kidding me??"

Can anybody gather what the he is actually saying? Pretty funny though.

Look Alikes: Joe Girardi & Ben Stiller from "There's Something About Mary"

Your 2010 New York Yankees

The 2010 Yanks have gotten off to a great start. As of today's victory (and sweep) of the Texas Rangers, NY is 9-3. Best start since 2003 (in which we started out 18-3 before losing our 4th game, so we have awhile to go). I tasted every game thus far, either on YES, on 880, or in person. Here are my keys to start of the season:


Here's the line on our starting pitchers:

C. Sabathia - 2-0, 2.84
A. Burnett - 2-0, 2.37
A. Pettitte - 2-0, 1.35
J. Vasquez - 0-2, 9.82
P. Hughes - 1-0, 3.60

Now, obviously Javier Vasquez is a sore spot, but everyone else has been stellar. CC, a notorious slow starter, has come in at the same pace as when he finished last season. AJ is in sync with Jorge and Pettitte doesn't seem to be slowing down at all given his age. Here's the line on another pitcher who does not seem to be showing his age in the least bit:

M. Rivera - 5 saves, 0.00 ERA


A very pleasant surprise Gardner has been. He's batting .333 (4th) with an OBP of .444 (2nd on team, out of the starters). He's leading the team with 7 stolen bases. He just gets on base. Yesterday against the Rangers, he had 3 infield hits. He can develop into such a valuable asset because when you have a guy with speed like that, game plans change and so do the mindsets of the infielders. With Gardner up, potential easy out grounders turn into potentially rushed throws.

3) NOT-TOP 4

Here's the line on the first 4 Yankee batters.

1. Jeter - .380
2. Johnson - .158
3. Teixiera - .114
4. Rodriguez - .295

Obviously Jeter has been awesome, A-Rod has been OK, but Johnson and Teixiera have been horrid. And yet, we have still been winning. What that means is that the 2nd half of the order has been coming through big time. Cano, Posada, Granderson. A sign of a truly great team is the response of the 2nd tier players when the 1st tier is struggling. So far this season, the response has been solid.


She's just so damn hot!

Keeping It Real

I met Tracy Morgan once. So randomly. I was in high school. After school one day. I was standing in line with one of my friends at the McDonald's on Broadway, right near the 238th street 1 stop. Lo and behold, who's standing in front of me in line with rolled up sweatpants and a white T but Tracy Morgan! This was when he was still doing his thing on SNL, not that well known. I got an autograph. Asked him where he lives. He said the Century building. Told him I think he's great on SNL. He said thanks. And that was that.

I'd Like to See the Following Movies (INPO)

Dinner for Schmucks


The Human Centipede

iPhone Apps I Love: Part I

Words With Friends (Free)

This app is the shit. Period. You can play
scrabble with other people who have the app. Up to like 10 games at once. Definitely my most used app. No point in getting the paid version as the ads don't take away from the gameplay. Get it and challenge me to a game (that you will lose!). My username name is: TheDAT.


This app lets you check movie times, add movie theatres as your favorites, watch trailers, find movie theatres, buy tickets online, etc. All the good stuff. Definitely a must-have app, especially if you are an avid movie-goer.

Sleep Cycle

This app is interesting. Basically, it is an alarm clock. But oh, it's so much more. It uses the iPhone's motion sensor technology to feel out how much you are moving in your sleep. It then can tell whether or not you are in deep sleep or not. The point is that it sets off the alarm when it senses that you are in your lightest sleep phase. That way, you feel the most refreshed when you wake up.
