Seantrel's latest folly: Comes a report today that former Hurricanes tackle and draft prospect Seantrel Henderson tested positive for marijuana during the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Answer: Limitless, apparently. Question: How many ways can Seantrel screw up?

NBA final-eight title odds: Today, betting odds via Bovada: Heat favorites at 7-5, then Spurs 3-1, Thunder 9-2, Clippers 15-2, Pacers 12-1, Nets 16-1, and Trailblazers and Wizards both 25-1. However, ESPN sees it way differently in Miami and puts title chances thusly: Spurs 26.4 percent, Thunder 24.0, Clippers 16.1, Heat 13.7, Pacers 11.2, Trailblazers 4.8, Wizards 3.2 and Nets 0.6.

NETS ESCAPE TO MEET HEAT IN SECOND ROUND; YOUR SERIES PREDICTION GOES HERE: Wow. Brookyn almost blows it but escapes Toronto 104-103 yesterday and it's Nets-Heat in NBA round-two playoffs starting Tuesday night in Miami. This by consensus and quantifiably has been the greatest first-round in the history of the NBA playoffs -- particularly notable 




1aa1aheatnetsbecause the Donald Sterling mess was plopped into the middle of it. Five of the eight 1R series have gone the full seven games. There were never more than two Game 7s in any one of the 11 previous years since the first round went from best-of-five to seven. Today Brooklyn escapeed at Toronto for the right to face the Heat next, and San Antonio swamped visiting Dallas to face Portland next. The other matchups already set were L.A. Clippers vs. Oklahoma City and Washington vs. Indiana. Brooklyn-Miami is the series you expected, and probably wanted. Nets were 4-0 vs. Heat in regular season, but with three one-point games and the other in double-overtime. Miami neverthless will be favored to advance despite that -- partly because of that. Here's a poll inviting your prediction in the series. Not what you want to happen, but what you honestly think will. Vote and say why.

With it you can access his social updates, videos and photos; info on his shoes, breakfast choices and off-court clothing; and details on his charity work and family life. Sounds like one-stop shopping for stuff you can either find elsewhere (Instagram, et al) or don't really care about, although one can hardly blame Samsung for milking the cow while the udder is fattest.

COTE CREDITED AS LE BATARD SHOW TOPS 1 MILLION PODCASTS: The Dan Le Batard Show (weekdays 3-7 p.m. on 790 & 104.3 The Ticket and 4-7 on ESPN Radio) had 1,024,775 downloaded podcasts in April -- the first time topping the 1M mark. The show's upward podcast trend shows a particularly notable spike from December to January, which coincidentally is right around when Greg Cote joined the show as a weekly in-studio (usually Tuesdays) co-host. "There is no question that Cote, the 'Show Killa,' has been a huge boost to the show," an anonymous made-up industry source totally did not say.

Poll result: Dolfans holding out hope for Martin in first round: We asked who you most hope Miami will land in Thursday's first round of the NFL draft and from among seven listed candidates Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin led by with 39.97 percent. There also was strong support for Alabama LB C.J. Mosley (25.11%) and North Carolina TE Eric Ebron (22.68%). The four other players split the crumbs.

PEANUT SHELL ART:
Ever heard what initially sounded like a ridiculous idea but then you give it a chance and you decide it's fantastic? That was me upon first hearing the phrase "peanut shell art." A talented guy from Cincinnati named Steve Casino, 48, makes tiny artwork of peanuts, meticulously painting them. Tiger Woods is pictured. Google this guy and check him out. I mean Casino, not Tiger. Perhaps this is inspiration borrowed from Planters' Mr. Peanut; no matter. It's a great idea masterfully executed.

CROCODILE CHOP: I love musical mashups. Sometimes they are absolute garbage. Sometimes they are inspired. Sometimes they are, like this one, confounding, incongruous and yet somehow interesting. Masher Neil Cicierega combines two acts that would not be caught on the same stage together, with Elton John's poppy "Crocodile Rock" and hard rocking System of a Down's "Chop Suey" becoming "Crocodile Chop." Enjoy (or, don't):

Crocodile Chop is 100% unadulterated crap.

Manziel has the chance to be a star on the field. What is unquestioned is he is the one player in the draft who will sell tickets. Which teams need a QB and need to put butts in the seats. Below is my ranking of the top six

#1 Jacksonville (3rd pick). Chad Henne is their current QB and their average attendance is only 89% of a 67,246 seat stadium.

#2 Oakland (5th pick). Matt Schaub was just signed but he is not a long term solution and their average attendance is only 80% of 63,132 seat stadium.

#3 Miami Dolphins (19th pick). Ryan Tannehill may be a good QB but never a star. More importantly for Miami their average attendance is only 85% of a 75,540 seat stadium.

#4 St Louis (2nd and 13th pick). Sam Bradford may be a star but it hasn't happened yet. More importantly St Louis average attendance is only 87% of a 66,000 seat stadium.

#5 Tampa Bay (7th pick). Mike Glennon is not a long term solution and their average attendance is 89% of a 65,890 seat stadium.

#6 Cleveland (4th pick). Brian Hoyer..seriously and their average attendance is 97% of a 73,200 seat stadium.

So how far will Johnny Manziel fall? He'll be long gone by the 5th pick and may in fact be the #1 overall pick because so many teams need a QB and need a fan enthusiasm injection.

When doing the research for this I was struck by just how small most of these pro stadiums are. There were 20 college football teams that had an AVERAGE attendance more then the capacity of Joe Robbie and 18 had average attendance of more than 80,000. Last year only two NFL teams had an average attendance greater than 80,000 (Dallas and NY Giants).

http://espn.go.com/nfl/attendance

So Samsung has come up with a "LeBron app"...Cote must be in heaven.

Come wednesday I'm going to post my fourth annual mock draft...I bet you guys can't wait..hehe

Manziel won't make it to 5 ( Browns for sure) ...Bortles won't make it to Tennessee at 11th.

You don't deserve LeBron, Miami. Nets in 6.

Heat beat the Nets in 6.LeBron seems quite happy in South Florida.I expect he ll eventually decide to spend the rest of his career here.Salute to Baseball Canes also for winning another series this weekend.Definitely playing now as a Top 10 NCAA baseball team.

nothing like another douche bag miami hater; "miami sucks", huh?
didn't your mother teach you any manners? do you even know her?
miami happens to be the 2 time, (soon to be 3), NBA champions who've been to the finals 3, (soon to be 4), straight years.
brooklyn will be lucky to win one game, we're on fire and nothing is stopping us, (again), this year..

IT'S NOT A PORPUS, IT'S NOT A PORPUS...

'keepin it real always',

WHY would any professional athlete want to stay in Miami?

Tom you're suggesting Miami needs a QB and should draft one? Sort of preposterous no? I saw a lot of improvement last year from our current QB. Almost 4000 yards most td passes since Mario. Seems there is more than enough evidence that he will likely improve. None of the qb's in this draft will be as good as Tannehill I don't think. They have more team needs at this point that seems obvious strange post by you dude.

Mike Wallace rumors continue to fly one report says he isn't well liked by the coaching staff. He 's excited about the new offense he says so it's hopefully a big year for him. Seems he is on a very short leash with the team if not.

Cote will be spending more time in the bathroom now with this lebron app. He will be like a teenager first identifying a great x-rated site and in that bathroom so much Mrs. Cote will think he developed Crohn's disease.

Cote hate to break it to you, it aint you propping up LeBatard's ratings, it is Ron Magill or Stu Gotz's horrible fake laugh.

FZB I look forward to your mock draft.

Nets in 7.

You're wrong Big Baby, Manziel is going to be a star and every team that passes on him, if there are any, will regret it. If Miami gets a chance to draft him, which they won't, they'd be idiots to pass on him.

Now Tannehill may turn out to be good, but there is no evidence so far to support that notion. Tannehill by QB rating was ranked 24th in the NFL last year. In 2012 he was ranked 27th. FZB correctly pointed out he had no OL or running game last year so it really is a little unfair to fully judge him, but it seems to me we've seen enough to know he'll never be a big time star. He may be a good QB but he'll never be great.

So yes I would be in favor of drafting Manziel (not Bortles or Bridgewater) if the opportunity presents itself.

He won't be there at 19 it will to be interesting to see how his career unfolds. You seem pretty convinced about his ability I am not totally sure about him. Mechanically unsound but still makes good throws just wonder if that will translate to the NFL we will see I guess.

If he's as good as you say he should go number 1 or a team should trade the farm to get him and move up. I think you forgot Houston on your list of teams that need a QB.

As far as evidence to support Tannehill there is some you just aren't seeing it.

Tom, you and I probably agree more often than not about most things than not. But much like our Brady Quinn debate of years past, your take on Johnny Football may be more idealic projection tan likely outcome. Yes, emphatically so, Manziel has moxie to spare, reminds one of Tarkenton, Flutie, Theismann. And like those three entered the game with a known size disadvantage.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I think Manziel is the best QB prospect who will play starting 2014, it's that he won't last.

Smart cars are never the same after close contacts with 18-wheelers.

Jury still out on Tannehill, but need to give him a decent line for proper judgement. My feeling is that he has all the tools, but not the intangibles. Hope I am wrong, because if not, the search for Marino replacement continues.

Heat in 6.

..."Manziel is NOT."

Imis in the evening, THAT is the reason why the Dolphs needed to -suck or Luck- back then. Instead, they won a couple of meaningless games, failing to place last.

A total lack of vision.

Nets in 7.

Posted by: The Truth | May 04, 2014 at 09:39 PM

whatever you say.. lol

tannehill's completion % was higher last year than the year before, even with a coaching staff that almost killed him.
next year will be a career year for tannehill, wallace and miller.
wallace will be lining up all over, NOT just on one side, and he will be targeted more as well.

miller, (or moreno), will average more than 10 carries a game, opening up the passing game.

and tannehill will use his speed and mobility more in and especially out of the pocket.

all 3 things i mentioned are hallmarks of philly's offense last year, and easy for anyone to reference, in between blaming ireland for everything from the housing crisis to bad marriages..

you will see WAY less passing attempts, more running attempts and a playoff berth as a result..

OH! and some of our draft pics last year will be contributing heavily, making the ireland is satan crowd seem that much dimmer..

BB you are right. Manziel won't be there at 19. And I will be very surprised if he goes past #5. I can't imagine Jacksonville, Cleveland and Oakland passing on him not to mention the teams that might trade up to get him. I would hate to be Houston and pass on him and then have him take Cleveland or Oakland to the promised land.

OC you may be right about Manziel but there is something about that kid that says winner to me. My bet is he hits it big time. But we'll see.

Rookie fail? No draft class had fewer snaps in 2013 than the Miami Dolphins

Happy Birthday, Woodcock. You don't look a day older than 80!

I cannot vote, as there is no choice for Heat in 3. Princess Paul, Sloppy Joe, Deron the Poor, Chuckles (aka Garnett), and their mob of Russians (Kirelenko, Telenovich, Peja Stoyakivic, Weird Al Yankovich and Mikael Gorbachov all under the capo di tutti capi Prokhorov) will be thoroughly embarrassed. There's my vote.

?

Some say I have a real potty mouth but that's just because my wife has a yeast infection...

Happy Birthday, Mr. Woodcock. How do you manage to keep looking not a day past 81?

Up to no good in the hood. Heat be like a bad dream y'all. Coming out swinging punching people in the mouth me and KG peace.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Woodcock. How do you manage to continue looking not a day past 81?

Happy Birthday Mr. Woodcock but 81? You sound stronger than 81 sir...

I'm told old for hero worship, especially when it comes to athletes. However, I am a fan of history and I will download the LeBron app because, despite the hate of outsiders, he will become an historical figure and I would like to follow history as it unravels in real-time. That may be a three-peat and LeBron resigning with the Heat for more of the same, or falling short and him moving on to greener pastures. For better or worse, no other historical figure has opened up his life to the public in this fashion and, whatever happens, it should be interesting.

Tom don't Jacksonville, Houston and Cleveland all need to take QB's? I think all three do reach if you have to it's better than passing and missing on a guy despite what other draft gurus say. I think Tampa, St. Louis and Oakland stay away from a QB at least in the first round. You forgot Minnesota on your list as well. They will draft a QB they don't have one Ponder swing and a miss. I heard McShay today say that Spielman has been at the top in terms of drafting talent just hasn't found a QB. Maybe we should have kept Spielman.

Big Baby if memory serves Spielman was practically tarred and feathered on his way out of Miami...

"OH! and some of our draft pics last year will be contributing heavily, making the ireland is satan crowd seem that much dimmer.."

Dude, are you retarded? Mentally challenged? Jeff Ireland was HORRIBLE and his record was so horrible that Miami had to fire him despite the owner's clear preference to keep him. Every one of his drafts was terrible and there's no amount of contribution that drafted players could make in the future that would make up for their embarrassing lack of contribution to date.

I didn't say Ireland wasn't retarded. You're gonna have a heart attack. Are you related to Spielman?

dukey, you can't always judge a book by its cover. Some people are just basically rotten...

Dukey, I think that What?!'s post was in response to something LA dave posted, not you. See 5/4, 10:33 PM.

Hickey's options include grabbing one of the top 4 tackles or LB Mosley at 19 or trading back/ or out of the first round grabbing 3 new linemen this draft.

Manziel ? My $ says no way. Start a rookie QB with this line?

Tom, like your posts 99% of the time- except when you post about Fins needing Matt Ryan or Brady Quinn. Philbin loved the way THill threw the ball in their first training camp and started THill his rookie season. Tannehill will be Miami's starter this year barring injury.

Jimbo

Ryan is a good QB, Jake Long is long gone. I was right on that one. Go check the Falcons and Dolphins cumulative record since that draft.

Quinn did not pan out but come on, CamMoron drafted the Ginn Family.

I know Miami is not drafting Manziel. But but but...if he is available, I hope they do.

If you were to ask me right now who gets to the playoffs first, I'll say Tannehill. But if you ask me who wins a SB first, I'll pick Manziel all day long.

Ryan is good Tom but he is developing a choke reputation in the playoffs not Romo or Dalton like yet but concerning. Good numbers though Ryan was the pick that year and we missed no doubt.

Ryan Tannehill is developing a choke reputation in the regular season.

Bortles? Guy was barely recruited out of high school. He might be serviceable but he won't be a star no way.

Seantrel Henderson is way beyond stupid. Had he applied himself in college (and I don't mean scholastically. I mean on the field) he could have been a top 10 pick He has the G-d given ability. He is just WAY stupid. He will not make it in the NFL. He is lazy, stupid and incapable of controlling his temptations. What a waste of physical gifts.

hey guys...

the Wood's-ter's birthday today?..vaya..here's my present, take your pick..oh my.

https://www.google.com/search?q=sexy+girls&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=q81nU73cJtSwsQTw4YDoDg&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1024&bih=663#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=8BZ1Na4CR0dtZM%253A%3BLvGJbIMZKukPbM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.androlib.com%252Fappscreenmax%252FxiiEn.u.cs.png%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.androlib.com%252Fandroid.screenshot.app.qDmCj-xiiEn.u.aspx%3B320%3B480

so the Heat play the Net's and their drama queen Pierce (sorry BB)..I say Heat in 6..maybe even in five.

Tanny will be just fine, if he gets a running game and the O Line gets fixed he will have a great year..yup.

Drama Queen lol. LeBron is a flopper.

yes drama queen.

post of the day...so far.

Everyone in the NBA is a flopper you dim-wit....it's part of the game.Lebron is no less and no more a flopper than anyone else...there are multiple examples in every game.

Paul Pierce knows that regular season doesn't mean jack shit.He is the first to acknowledge that the Heat are a different team in the playoffs.Heat in 6...

Every good team is a different team in the playoffs duh. Real men of genius.

Lebron King of flopping.

I tell you who's the NE king of flopping..Tom Brady, the gets touch and he goes down..what a pussy he is.

Bill Polian just said on ESPN that if Dion Jordan is not a full time starting player this year then it was a bad pick.

We didn't need Bill Polian to tell us that.

Some of us do...not you....not me....but some of us.

You're right some of us do. Some people think Ireland was a genius and that D. Jordan should be playing outside backer when he lacks the skill set to do so. Still like you FZ and David! I read one report that said if Miami drafts Mosley then it's Misi heading to the bench. Huh? I thought Misi was decent enough to start now he's not better than Wheeler or Ellerbee? I hope that report is wrong.

this is Dion Jordan's bio prior to last year's draft..

Bottom Line Jordan's 2012 season ended on a down note, as he aggravated a shoulder injury during the team's bowl game. He missed the Senior Bowl and part of the draft process because of it, but Jordan offers a unique blend of comfort in space, length, and pass rush ability. His box scores might not appeal to everyone, but Jordan was frequently asked to cover receivers or tight ends after lining up in the slot opposite them. His future appears to be at strongside linebacker in a four-man front, with the ability to rush the passer, or as an outside linebacker in a three-man front.


http://www.nfl.com/draft/2012/profiles/dion-jordan?id=2539288

its clear to me you infidels don'y know what you're talking about, pay attention to the last part...

Big Baby:King of Dumb Asses

His future is now and it doesn't include playing linebacker in the NFL. He's being mentored by Jason Taylor. His coaches won't play him there. They want him to play DE and become an every down player there. If he plays LB it won't be in Miami.

the fact that our coaches are playing him at DE show how stupid they are..Coyle and clueless Joe have a great talent on their hand and don't know what to do with him.

he was rated the number one defensive player coming out of the draft last year for a reason..and just about everyone thought the guy's future was at LB..

FZB just stop. You and david have zero credibility, Jeff Ireland's record was indefensible.

And who's defending Ireland?... All I'm saying is that D Jordan is a great talent and that our coaches don't seem to realize it..

FZ, talent? So is Justin Timberlake, yet you would think a GM wod not draft him, let alone a coach try to figure out how to use him. Hey, maybe Dion can sing!

Translation: same old argument...

Coach: I need a player that does A and not B.

GM: tough sh**. I'm giving you a player that does B, whether you like it or not, and if you don't like it, fire me!

Owner: I can make that happen.

FZ, I just hired a new sales guy to work for you, and I expect you to double your sales output for the quarter. Oh, BTW, he's never sold insurance in his life, but he does play a mean game of golf.

Justin Timberlake is a product...

FZ of course you are defending Ireland you wouldn't be defending D. Jordan pick so much if you weren't. That's ok though we expect that from you we are used to it. D Jordan by his own admission wasn't 100% NFL ready last year he must get stronger and learn more hopefully he will. I would like to see him get more playing time and have a good season. He may never live up to the third selection but if he contributes and is in a regular rotation he could have a good career.

2013 Draft by Dolphins is a flat out zero to this point. Fortunately IF Jordan turns into Cam Wake JR and a good starting CB comes out of the 3 Fins drafted last year, than it isn't a total loss. The jury is still out on the 2013 class. Let's see what happens on the field this season.

Heat clearly has the best team in the NBA. No reason why they should run the tables.

Just by Ireland picking Jordan doomed the poor guy................JMHO..

Woodcocks 82 years old?????????????
Dang happy birthday cockster..

Woodcock
Happy Birthday. Guess your at that age where you know how to get things done (play that cheesy cialis commercial music).

Jimbo's 2014 mock draft: (no trades, Fins lost 7th rd pick in compensation for McKinnie)
1. CJ Mosely, ILB
2. Joe Bitonio, OT
3. Jack Mewhort, OT
4. Jeremy Hill, RB
5. Dezmen Southward,

best of 3 OT's drafted will start at RT, other 2 will compete for RG spot. LG starter will come out of competition between Garner, Smith, Fox currently on roster.

Currently checking out the talent at USF,,,, :)

6. Daryl Williams, OT

draft complete

5. Dezmen Southward, Safety!

I suggest Miami give Houston this year's #1 plus #1's for 2015 and 2016 for the #1 pick and select Zack Martin. I loved the movie Draft Day.

Miami should trade all of their picks down to accumulate 30 7th rounders. Just think they might luck into a special teams player or two.

Hey Jeff I'm you're kind of player. An expensive non-performer. Sign me.

It would be great if whoever we draft in the first round could be a starter in 2014. Is that too much to ask?

So by defending D Jordan I'm defending Ireland?... Hhhmmm...what the hell kind of logic is that?

Jimbo...we actually do have all of our picks this year..we are giving the Ravens our 7th rounder next year .

Did you guys ever stop to think that the reason our rookie class from last year sucked was because of poor coaching?


easy jimbo; the jury can't be out on last year's draft, just ask tom!
apparently you, FZB and i all realize it sometimes takes a couple of years for players to develop, especially when they come in injured and cannot play.
OC, it's not the same old argument; that's a garbage statement.
you don;t ALWAYS draft need; sometimes you draft the best talent available.
portland didn't NEED a 2 guard, so they passed on jordan, and the rest is history. sometimes you draft the best talent available.

Every one of his drafts was terrible and there's no amount of contribution that drafted players could make in the future that would make up for their embarrassing lack of contribution to date.

Posted by: What?! | May 05, 2014 at 11:40 AM

no one claimed ireland was a genius, dummy.
all i and FZB have ever said is he made good moves and bad moves.

in one draft he landed a pro bowl center (pouncey), a top 10 tight end (clay), and a starting cornerback (wilson).

in the next year he landed a starting QB with some upside (tannehill), a double digit sack machine (vernon), a starting slot receiver (matthews), and a starting running back with upside who averaged 4.0 yards a carry and had barely 10 a game (miller).

what does this mean?
it means what!?, you are an idiot..

and baby, please save your NBA sour grapes for the boston globe.
nobody here gives a cr$p about what you think regarding the heat.
between spo, riley, wade and lebron, we have the celtics beat in every category from superstar to GM to coach to water boy.
miami is a class organization, lebron is a class superstar, and your celtics are about as relevant as the lakers.
no one cares.
lebrom is a back to back NBA champ, and no celtic has been able to say that sine we were in high school.
as a dolphin fan i can assure you:
living in the past only goes so far.
GO HEAT!

If the Dolphins had any brains they would draft all wide receivers...

Dear Coach Philbin,

I not only miss you, I love you too. You had me at you're fired Mike...


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7c/MikeSherman2003.jpg

Coach,

Remember when that above pic was taken? It's was when I kweefed after you made love to my anus for the first time...

Oh yes and coach, if you have any feelings for me you'll stay away from Dawn's bearded dragon...

David...don't you know?... The NFL has changed, if you don't produce right away as a rookie you're label a bust..

The Wizards AND the Clips won as road teams last night, interesting....the Heatle's better beat the drama queen tonight...that's all I can say.

Marlins win !... Best home team and at the same time the worst road team WTF?

How many starters does Miami have from the 24 players drafted since 2011?

2013 0
2012 3 (and one of those, Miller, is now 2nd string)
2011 2 (Pouncey and Clay)

Wow. 5 out of 24.

By contrast the Bills start 8 of 26 drafted players since 2011. And the Jets? 10 out of 21.

http://www.pro-football-reference.com/draft/

Stop defending Ireland. You're just embarrassing yourselves.

Our inability to "suck for Luck" still haunts me.

Obviously the we won't be taking a QB early-on this year, while sticking with Tannehill til the end. That's OK by me for now, but that being said, I too like Manziel a lot AND Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater's won at everything he's ever done. Forget those workouts and see the winner on the field. If Teddy can hold up physically, I think he eventually becomes a decent to excellent NFL QB. We'll see.

Jimbo I think Fox will compete at RT and maybe start there. Smith should win the job at guard. Bridgewater is an interesting case lean frame can't seem to keep weight on and no big time arm raise questions. He did however play in a pro style offense and produce. That's why we love the draft I guess.

Of the QBs drafted in 2012 where does Tannehill rank? That class included Andrew Luck, RGIII, Brandon Weeden, Russell Wilson, Nick Foles and Kirk Cousins.

Right now I would say he is only the 5th best QB in that class behind Luck, RGIII, Wilson and Foles each of whom has been named to the pro bowl and lead their teams to the playoffs.

If Manziel by some miracle falls into Miami's lap Hickey would be insane not to draft him.

Mike Sherman is right it's a passing league too bad Ireland left him with a garbage oline he might still have a job.

Big Baby what do you mean Ireland left Sherman with a garbage OL? david told us not too long ago that Miami had "all pro talent" at every position on the OL last year.

You were right all along about that unit Tom as I said I never thought an oline could sink a season but it sure did. 2 more wins with even an average oline last year. I'll pick two games Baltimore and Buffalo. Maybe Tampa.

Luck would still be in traction if Fins landed him...

Sorry I couldn't thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday I passed out at the massage parlor and the focking chinks charged me extra because I had an erection which lasted longer than 4 hours. Boys, never take three Viagras with a half a bottle of Bushmill's Irish Honey........I've been icing down "Ol' Hickory" for the past 24 hours without success. Does anyone know how to get rid of buck tooth marks? Focking chinks the next time I'll ask the mama son to give me a comfort girl with false teeth.

You east coast guys missed the pole axing the Clips laid on OKC last night. If the Clips play like they can play they can win the whole enchilada. Yup, you heard it here, the whole enchilada. Like OC, said, "Jordan, is the best center in the Association." They punished OKC last night. This ain't your father's Clippers.
