M.J. and His Applesauce
I enjoyed this story about the Utah Jazz ball boy who worked the 1998 NBA Finals.
Lovely Lady Roundup
Jessica Jones is a model, actress, bartender and Super Woman (at least according to her Twitter feed). Follow her on Instagram and Facebook … I suddenly find myself a huge fan of Ashley Hinshaw … Miss Universe 2013 is Venezuela’s Gabriela Isler.
J.R. Smith may have shot 1-for-9 in his first game with the Knicks since returning from a five-game pot suspension, but he had a hell of a pregame dance.
Top 100 Sports Radio Hosts
Talkers Magazine came out with its list of the Top 100 Sports Talk Radio Hosts in America and Mike Francesa is No. 1. As luck would have it, McLovin (aka – Andrew Perloff) from the Dan Patrick Show (which came in No. 4) is in my office as we speak and offered the following comment: “Is this list in reverse order of awesomeness?”

Odds and Ends
The most overpaid coaches in college football … The 20 best GIFs of the NFL weekend … Former Eagles OL Shawn Andrews went off on Donovan McNabb during an interview with Philadelphia radio host Mike Missanelli … A Michigan man won a $1.35 million lottery. He also won a $1 million Tennessee lottery a few years ago … Eagles DL Vinny Curry celebrated a sack in Sunday’s game against Green Bay by hugging the nearest ref … On this day in 1990, Chiefs LB Derrick Thomas recorded seven sacks in a 17-16 loss to Seattle … The idea of YouTube came, in part, because the founders couldn’t locate a clip of Janet Jackson‘s famous Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction.”
Play of the Day
A group of five and six-year-olds run the Statue of Liberty play. I would’ve used the “Can the Jaguars sign them for the rest of the year” joke but Jacksonville won yesterday. Oh,well.
