    Picture Of The Day: Latrell Sprewell Grammar Lesson

    I might not do too good at grammar, but I’ve always enjoyed learning it. When I was in grade school, the sentences teachers made up for lessons were always interesting because they’d use students’ names from our class.

    Can you imagine seeing on ESPN’s SportsCenter ticker something, like, “Paulie took some kid under his wing. Meanwhile, the new shipment of drugs should be coming in sometime next week,” scrolling right after an update on, say, Brett Favre’s decision to retire/unretire?

    Picture Of The Day: Poll Fail

    Don’t you just love it when a waiter asks somebody if they want the Italian or the ranch dressing for their salad and the customer responds, “yes.” Either the waiter sold the customer at Italian and they checked out early or they’re just too attention deficit disordered to listen all the way through to a […]
