Everything Else

LSU Basketball Likes Big Packages

Copy editors are like the unsung heroes of the newspaper world. The Pippen to the Jordan, the Drysdale to the Koufax, the Jarri Kurri to the Gretzky. They don’t have the big superstar name, but they’ve held up well in their own right and contributed to the team’s success in large ways. Largely unheralded and…Read More

Speedo’s $550 Controversial Swimsuit

It’s two pieces, studded with diamonds and rhinestones, and plated in gold. OK, not quite. But yeah, Speedo is marketing a $550 swimsuit called the LZR Racer. Apparently the suit was designed by NASA with all sorts of special fabrics and bonding to make you a more efficient swimmer. There’s like less drag and all…Read More

Hi, I’d like to Cancel my Reservation

Two notes: One, I blocked out my frequent flyer number — don’t need you all tooling around the country on my account. Two, the only reason I didn’t have a flight scheduled for Friday or Saturday is because I was scheduled to work all weekend, not because I thought UCLA was already in the title…Read More

But one new, cutting edge sport to which I was not previously privy, is “midget wrestling.” An LBS insider informs me that…Read More

Is Going to Games Too Expensive?

I’m sitting here wondering why my Bruins are about to play their rival and very fine basketball team — the USC Trojans — in the semi-finals of the Pac-10 tournament, and I’m not going. I have the day off from work and actually have the opportunity to watch UCLA play which is rare since their…Read More

Rock Paper Scissors Competition Going Global, Heading to Beijing

Apparently there’s a league that has been in existence for the past two years called the Bud Light/USA Rock Paper Scissors League. I think there was something to that effect on ESPN recently, though I can’t swear to it. Well, the USARPS must be going pretty well, because they’re now offering a $50,000 prize to…Read More

Drunken Skeeball “Brewskee Ball” Leagues Sweeping the Nation

I was alerted by a friend and site reader about the recent fad sweeping the nation. It’s cheap, it’s fun, it’s easy, and best of all, anyone can do it. It’s drunken skeeball, also known as Brewskee Ball. Founded by a few dudes in the summer of ’05, Brewskee ball is the hottest new thing…Read More
