The Real Shaq, Shawn Marion, Fired Up!, Metric, The Acorn on Daytrotter

  • ... bear with me here ... my buddy Cam sent me a message saying that a friend of his spotted Shawn Marion doing groceries on Sunday after the Raps win over NYK. For anyone interested in what he bought:
- Fiji Bottled Water (2 x 12 packs)
- Fruité Brand Fruit Drink (1 x Fruit Punch, 1 x Grape - I'm pretty sure)
- Kraft Singles
- Doritos (Original Nacho Cheese)
- Mr. Noodles (4 packs)
- Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter
- Cashmere Brand Toilet Paper (12 pack Double Roll - *sale item*)
- Pizza Pops

.... the odds of Shawn Marion putting on 30lbs immediately after he retires? I'm going to guess pretty good...
  • Liz and I saw Fired Up! on Sunday night. And yes, that's the one with the Cheerleaders. I went into thinking that I would like it in the same way that I like Bromance, The Hills, The Real World, etc., but it was actually legitimately funny... plus its hard to beat the $10 student deal (movie, drink, popcorn) at the North York Centre.

NBA Stars...They're Just Like Us!

Out of nowhere, really, but thoughts on this, Robbie?

Love that someone stood up, and A-Rod - despite his generally brain-dead tennis - always seems like a good guy.

It seems kind of empty if he's the only one protesting, doesn't it?

Hal Incandenza said...

possibly...though I'm glad someone appears to have noticed the injustice. Any conceivable way that Dubai retains its WTA credentials next year? And, if so, how totally gutless does/would that make the WTA? I'm farily stunned they didn't do anything this time around. Shameful.

The R.O.B. said...

Possible? I'd say probable.

The minute you asked I went to Wertheim:

and, I'd add also, that in a terrible economy the WTA isn't in a financial position to penalize Dubai...

and, I didn't realize that Roddick was defending the title in Dubai, which I think adds a little gravitas to his stance. So, more kudos to him.
