Who's Bad - Regenerated

There's a new reason to see Who's Bad

No more Thug MJ. This time we get a bona-fide Las Vegas Michael - "The World's #1 Michael Jackson impersonator." Plus we can really enjoy ourselves this time knowing that America's justice system determined for a fact that he's normal...

Will's Sure Way to Lose Money of the Week

Record: 3-5

This Week's Lock:

Florida -3.5

Finally, one for the Georgia fans of the BMBS nation. The Bulldogs are still a tremendously talented team without Shockley under center. Joe Tereshinski does not have to win this game. The defense and running attack will set the tempo. Georgia will win as long as JT3 doesn't make any big mistakes. He had nearly an entire game to work out the kinks against Arkansas and Richt has surely opened up the playbook for him this week in practice. The biggest advantage Georgia has over the Gators is Brandon Cotu (sp?). You can count on at least three points everytime Georgia crosses the 35-yard line. Dawgs by 3.

Was It Over When the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?

All is not lost for the Cadets just yet. A win over Jefferson County would land us in the playoffs for the first time since 2001. Beating a ranked, undefeated team on the road...sound familiar? Don't think BC can do the impossible twice? Well, I've invited a few guest speakers to convince you otherwise.

Bluto: What the fuck happened to the BMBS I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts? Huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives but you're gonna let it be the worst. Oh, we're afraid to go with you, Bluto. We might lose. WELL JUST KISS MY ASS FROM NOW ON! NOT ME! I'M NOT GONNA TAKE THIS! THE LINEBACKER? HE'S A DEAD MAN! RUNNING BACKS? DEAD! QUARTERBACK?

Otter: Dead! Bluto's right! Psychotic, but absolutly right. We've gotta take these bastards. Now, we could fight them with conventional weapons but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think this situation absolutly requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

Bluto: And we're just the guys to do it. LET'S DO IT! GO! GO! GO! AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Is this Legal?

I am borrowing this post from Southern Appeal.

The Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity; The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill:
As part of a continuing commitment to advance underrepresented scholars in higher education, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is pleased to announce the availability of 6 positions in the Carolina Postdoctoral Program for Faculty Diversity. Postdoctoral Scholars will spend essentially full time on research, but will be allowed to teach no more than one course per year. Applications for study in any discipline represented at the University are welcome. The Department of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill strongly encourages candidates interested in political science to apply. The stipend will be $35,625 per calendar year. Health benefits are available. Some funds are available for research expenses, including travel. Minority students who will have completed their doctoral degree no later than July 1, 2006, and no earlier than July 1, 2000 are eligible to apply.

Why am I prevented from applying? Is this legal?

Why is Africa Poor?

Econ professor Don Boudreaux sums it:
The people of Niger are poor not because that country is densely populated. (It's not: it's population density is nine persons per square kilometer.) They are poor not because of drought; not because they lack resources; not because Americans and Europeans are rich. They are poor because, for example, local regulations stipulate that companies must give all employees six weeks and two days of paid vacation a year. Not surprisingly, there are almost no employers in Niger.

Commerce is the foundation of civilization, the font of prosperity, and the key to peace. Niger's government -- either because of foolishness or evilness (take your pick) -- squashes commerce in that country. No amount of aid, mosquito nets, op-eds by Sachs, or serenading of Bono and Paul McCartney will do Nigeriens any good until commerce is allowed to flourish there.
Amen. Let's go out and vote for Hilary Clinton in three years and make America the next Niger.

Rumblings From Mordor

A new force is rising in the Middle Earth that is west Chatham County. Savannah Christian has unveiled the master plan for its Chatham Parkway campus, beginning with the construction of a new state-of-the-art athletic center. Other projects include a new high school and lower school, with the middle school moving from DeRenne Ave. to the current high school.

This is obviously of major concern to the BMBS nation. For years, BC has been able to raid Savannah Christian for a large amount of students, including many good athletes and all-around elitist assholes. In the future, the Lee McCurry's of Savannah might choose to stay at Savannah Christian. Also, public school kids that are tired of being thugs and Country Day kids that are tired of being fags might view SCPS as a better opportunity than BC. The Raiders have raised the ante. It's up to the two towers of Bobby and Tommy Cannon and the rest of the fellowship of the ring to ensure that BC remains the king.

Habemus Bondam

This guy (Daniel Craig) will be the new James Bond. As you may know, I’m a huge fan of the Bond series, especially the Sean Connery films and the first three Pierce Brosnan ones. The last Bond flick, however, was one of the worst movies of all time. With “Die Another Day,” the writers/directors said it was time to “bring James up speed with the 21st century,” whatever that means. So they “modernized” the series (always a bad idea) with Matrix-like camera angles, ridiculous, off-the-wall, cartoon-like special effects, and interracial love scenes that made even Lenox Square Mall jealous. This was the writers' way of saying “hey, it’s 2002, and we’re in the real world now, deal with it." There are a million other things I hated about the movie, particularly all the precedent it breaks with from the past 20 films in attempt to be “creative” (which it fails miserably in doing), but I won’t waste your time here.

Long story short: this is a free country. If you want to see the Matrix, then go watch the Matrix for Christ’s sake. If you want to watch Vin Diesel and Triple Z or whatever, then by God go out and rent Triple Z. But leave James Bond alone. The new film will be an adaptation of author Ian Fleming’s very first installation in the series, Casino Royale. Please don’t ruin a classic.

Name that Landmark

Yep, you guessed it, it's the Deschutes Fire Tower.

For you boys down at Southern...

There's yet another movement to pass a new flag for the State of Georgia.

The flag has been dubbed "The Prettiest Little Flag in the Country" by the man himself.

Will's Lock of the Week

Last Week: Sorry, Vandy. Some things never change.

Record: 3-3

This week's lock:

Bowling Green -23

Doug Weathers may not know how to spell Buffalo, but he could probably tell you that the Bulls are terrible. Through five games, Buffalo is averaging a mere 6 points per game. On the flip side, Bowling Green is one of the best offesive teams in the nation, racking up 43 points per game. You do the math. Bowling Green by 35.

Will's Lock of the Week

How does Dave Wannstedt (sp?) keep getting work?

Record: 2-3

This Week's Lock:

LSU -15.5

There was a huge bandwagon crash in Nashville last weekend as Vandy reverted to their old ways and blew an opportunity to open the season at 5-0 for the first time since the Swingin' Medallions started playing rap songs. LSU is still pissed about losing to Tennessee, even after drubbing Miss. St. last weekend. LSU by 24.

Leonard Rules

Given the history of athletic prowess in our family, there's a good chance this guy is related to us.
