Mr. Robot is back…with a new trailer

Finally after last season’s bombastic finale we get a glimpse of what is to come for season two of my favorite show from the past year.  So without further ado here it is

The two feelings I have after watching that can encapsulated with these

Looks we are going to be diving deeper into Elliot’s psyche to figure out what really happened when he blacked out and delve into fSociety’s allies that also operate in the shadows which will be much harder to do in light of recent events. Then we have freaking Obama calling out Tyrell Wellick while linking him to fSociety. Speaking of Tyrell, we do not see him at all in the trailer but maybe we catch a glimpse of his hand when he slaps Mrs. Wellick while she’s getting her BDSM on

Screen20Shot202016-05-1620at204.30.1220PM-thumb-600x345-155937

I just can’t be sure. I just need for Wellick to come back and share the screen with her again because that resulted in some of the most haunting, erotic, powerful scenes of the show. Also just because the actor who plays Tyrell is the second best performance on the show behind Elliot, he just commands the screen and emotes wonderfully.

Finally that debacle of a series is over with it and I’m ecstatic that I will not have to see those same players together ever again in my life. By the end of the series I found myself empathizing with Harden because he was the only consistent scorer on the team even with his ole defense followed by a deadpan stare at a teammate who he think should’ve helped. It’s obvious Dwight and Harden have their issues but a lot of it can be placed on JB Bickerstaff barely playing or not playing Capela at all this series when the numbers have backed up his productivity.

For being such an analytic driven team you would think JB would be paying attention to the numbers especially a staggering one like that.  He would also play Harden for long stretches of time without a break, as evidenced by him playing 40 straight minutes in game 4. During the first quarter last night Harden went 6 for 6 and the rest of the season went 0 of 15 which is a perfect microcosm of their season. After the conclusion of last night’s game the Rockets were granted permission to interview Luke Walton for the HC job which would be a phenomenal improvement.

Moving onto next year with Dwight out of the picture along with most of the role players except for Harden, Capela, Beasley, Beverly, Harrell, McDaniels,  D-Mo (going to keep him on a cheaper deal too) and Dekker. Harden is a exceptional offensive talent but he has to become more interested on the defensive end with his effort and not fall asleep on D like he is known to do.

Harden-Sleep

Part of the non effort is due  to his teammates clanking their shots not like never before this season and even more so during the playoffs. Dwight and Harden never really fit they only played around 2 seasons worth games together in 3 years because of Dwight’s injury problems. It was no coincidence Harden had his MVP worthy season in 2014-15 when Dwight missed the second half of the year. He also led the league in points in back to back years which hasn’t been done since his old teammate Kevin Durant did it 3x in a row  from 09-12′.  By the way the person who scores the most total points is my scoring champ not the one who averages the most.

There will be a number of free agents to go after this offseason and they will need to get another creator to go alongside Harden , with a center and a 3 & D guy to replace Ariza. Ideally I would like them to go after Al Horford, Pau Gasol to shore up the frontline. I don’t want Whiteside even though he’s elite defensively because he just strikes me as a knucklehead and its very hard to win with those. For the 3 spot that Ariza used to occupy I would go after Durant first then then Nic Batum who is coming off of his best season ever with the Hornets. The Rockets would be fools to not go after him when Durant ultimately spurns them. The last guy is Kent Bazemore , another underrated guy like Batum who has quietly had his strongest season. Now for the piece that has been missing longest during Harden’s tenure a player that can create shots alongside him. Mike Conley is my first choice followed by Rondo and Jeremy Lin.

Man Traveling in ‘Ocean Bubble’ From South Florida to Puerto Rico Rescued at Sea

(NBC Miami) A Florida man trying to reach Bermuda, Haiti, Cuba and Puerto Rico in a giant inflatable bubble was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard over the weekend.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Mark Barney said long-distance runner Reza Baluchi was picked up Sunday off Florida and his “hydropod” was being towed to shore. Baluchi agreed to be voluntarily rescued.

The Coast Guard tweeted Sunday that Baluchi’s voyage had ended “after he violated a USCG order not to embark on his seagoing journey.”

The contraption, years in the making, includes 36 buoyancy balls on each side, a life jacket with a water filter, a GPS tracking device and even shark repellent.

Baluchi set out from Pompano Beach on Saturday, despite receiving an April 15 letter from the Coast Guard warning him not to depart, according to Barney.

The Coast Guard said it had reviewed Baluchi’s plan and determined it to be unsafe. The first leg alone was about 1,033 miles.

Baluchi, however, was undeterred.

“Mind is power. It’s 85 percent your mind. Anything you can do,” he said before leaving Florida.

He tried to make a similar journey in 2014 and had to be rescued about 70 nautical miles east of St. Augustine.

Baluchi — an endurance athlete who has biked through six continents and run the perimeter of the United States — has said his eventual goal is to run through every country in the world and raise money for children in need.

 I saw the headline and was a little surprised that someone would try to travel 3,500 miles from south Florida to Georgia then on to Puerto Rico and Haiti before finally returning to to the starting point.
But then I saw he was from Florida and it all made sense, he’s just joining the long list of Florida men and women who commit the strangest crimes. But unlike most of his peers he was doing this for a good cause that raises money for children in need somehow. I don’t know how that is supposed to work but maybe its awareness, look at me thing like the Ice bucket challenge or what the Call your Shot will probably turn into. Its noble in some strange way nonetheless.
The big problem I with it is if some yahoo wants to get into a bubble and spin across the ocean on his volition and knows the risks the Coast Guard should let him instead of wasting resources and time not once but two times as his he previously tried to make this journey in 2014.  Now he’s facing jail time and a fine for his attempted efforts. Which is so dumb, it makes more sense to just leave him out there then. With no sails or steering I am pretty sure the wind would decide where this ball goes more than him just spinning.
3382363C00000578-3556817-image-a-12_1461540916877
If he wants to go out into international waters in his air bubble and spin around like a hamster until a Kraken eats him or a storm sinks that bubble…LET HIM. We have an overpopulation problem in this world and fighting natural selection is not the way we will overcome it. What better way to gain attention for your cause than dying for it. But if he made it, what a story that would be right.  Hey Reza here’s a pro-tip for your next attempt, when you send in the plans to get reviewed by the coast guard just leave a couple weeks earlier than you put in your itinerary. Got to keep those guys on their toes.

Conor McGregor has ‘Retired’, so what are his best quotes ???

Conor Mcgregor has abruptly ‘retired’ before what would be the biggest event in the history of the sport also coming with the biggest payday at UFC 200. It’s sad day to see the best fighter on the mic with fight game to back it up in a long time. The reason for the retirement is because Dana white took him off the card because Conor did not want to promote the fight. “Conor did not want to come to Las Vegas and film the commercial or be a part of any of the marketing that we have,” White told ESPN. Conor is still reeling from the loss and wanted to focus all his time training which is respectable. But it is the fighter’s job to sell fights too and Conor knows that. He thinks he’s bigger than sport and he wouldn’t be wrong in a lot of aspects. Hopefully they can meet somewhere in the middle and do this thing come July. But  In either case lets look back to see part of what him the most electrifying fighter out there.

Speaking in Rio de Janeiro

I own this town, I own Rio de Janeiro, so for him to say that he is the king and I am the joker, if this was a different time, I would invade his favela on horseback, and would kill anyone who wasn’t fit to work, but we’re in a new time, so I’ll whoop his ass instead.”

When he heard he was fighting Mendes instead of Aldo

The ship was sailing smoothly. My coach came into my room at 1pm, I was sleeping, and he told me that Mendes was replacing Aldo. I opened one eye, said “it makes no difference” then went back to sleep.”

Precision Beats Power, after beating Aldo 

“Nobody can take that left hand shot. He’s powerful and he’s fast, but precision beats power and timing beats speed.

“I feel for Jose, he’s a phenomenal champion. He was a phenomenal champion. He deserved to go a little bit longer but at the end of the day, precision beats power and timing beats speed.”

Chad Mendes questions Conor’s wrestling skills 

Mendes: Conor is a big talker. Conor brought so much attention to this division, so much attention to the UFC. He talked his way all the way up to the top. When I look at Conor I see dollar signs in my bank account. You know, Conor I match up horrible for this guy. Conor, do you know what wrestling is?

McGregor: I can rest my balls on your forehead

Before he made his U.S. debut in Boston

“There’s two things I really like to do and that’s whoop ass and look good.  I’m doing one of them right now and on Saturday night, I’m doing the other.”

When questioned on how he would adjust to the weight class change

“The only weight I give a fuck about is the weight of the checks and my checks are super-heavyweight.”

The Death Promise during the final presser between Aldo V. McGregor

“Look into my eyes. Little Brazilian. Você vai morrer (you are going to die).”

El Chapo in his prime

“I’m speaking Spanish, I’m dressed like El Chapo in his prime,” McGregor shouted. “I’m running this company like half a wise guy. I’m up here verbally destroying this man. I am a multi-cultured individual. I do whatever I want.”

captura_de_pantalla_2016-01-20_a_las_22_fotor_collage_0

It will all be A-Ok

“I was happy to see him, I shook his hand, I embraced him, I gave him a little cuddle and told him that it would all be A-okay.

“It will be over before you know it, just please show up December 12th. I don’t want to scare him any more, he’s petrified, he went running before. So now I’m gonna take the opposite approach, cuddle him look after him, whisper sweet nothings…. tell him it’s gonna be alright and it will be over quick.

“Then hopefully get him in that octagon on December 12th and end his career.”

Red Panty Night

To Cerrone/Dos Anjos

“Because I change your bum life. I can make you rich. I can change your bum life. You fight me, it’s a celebration. When you sign to fight me, it’s a celebration, you ring back home, you ring, ‘Baby, we done it. We’re rich. Conor McGregor made us rich. Break out the red panties. We’re rich, baby.’

 

So with that I bid you adieu Conor you magnificent bastard. I wish you luck in your future endeavors but I really hope you do get back in the ring soon because the fight game isn’t the same without you and we need all the amazing sound bites and ko’s we can get. Plus you had one of the best walkouts ever with the Foggy Dew / Notorious BIG mashup .

New Week , Fresh Things

These past few days I have come across some new content that I found really dope so without further ado lets get to it.

First is Catastrophe a show on Amazon Prime about an American who travels to London for business then meets a local schoolteacher, they have a weekend fling resulting in a pregnancy and the show starts from there. The one aspect of the show that really makes it stand out from its peers is the title characters Sharon & Rob interact with one another. You may recognize Rob as Rob Delaney from twitter where he is a great follow.  Usually in sitcoms you see the characters reacting to situations to get laughs but with Catastrophe you seem them making each other laugh. Often using their humor with each other as a short hand for people who really convey they care about one another. They both know the other is funny so they try to best each other and its really charming to take in. The how the humor takes you in and relaxes you its easier for them to tackle deeper issues people have in relationships all while being sneakily emotional. Because of the humor they are able to delve into heavier subjects you would not find yourself normally laughing it. It really feels like a peak into two people’s lives without being over the top and that is a very welcome change of pace. The second season just came out, they are 30min each with only 6 episodes per season. So basically its shorter than a lot of movies these days. Who has time to sit down for a three hour movie anyways? No need film industry, no need. Yes I know its the season 2 trailer but it doesn’t give away much and it’s better cut than S1.

 

The second thing I want to get to is Action Bronson’s Mr. Wonderful. Let it run while you read the rest

It came out last year around this time but this bangs so hard with his distinct New York Flavor (Queens stand up!) and the production on it is flames with the likes of Mark Ronson, and 40 blessing some tracks. Just put the Ghostface comparisons out of your mind and listen to it. I first remember Action because of the  Rare Chandeliers album cover is what made me take notice

dzcgrz0vx7l73hmajhtg

I then started watching him on Vice Eats a couple of years ago and he’s very entertaining on camera and really offers some professional insight into the food. He’s able to speak about so eloquently and passionately because he is a trained chef. When Vice Eats became a hit he then moved onto Munchies another channel to continue it and now finally he’s back with Vice with “F*CK That’s Delicious” which is the same premise but just longer and I’m not complaining because its a very fun and informative watch with that flair only Action can provide.

Here’s some more artwork I like

Charlize Theron says it hard being pretty

(GQ UK)

Charlize Theron on breaking out of being typecast early on

“Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story. How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f***ing, gown-wearing eight-foot model? When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”

Charlize Theron on ageing

“We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine. And, for a long time, women accepted it. We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership. It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men… It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40.”

Charlize Theron on South Africa

“I love my country. And it’s very hard for South Africans to believe that, because I left and speak in an American accent. I have a very, very strong connection to my country and to its people. It’s the mother that might have abandoned me, in a weird way, but not all the way. I’m not having a pity party, but I’m constantly trying to win its love back.”

People face a myriad of problems every single day but i guarantee you won’t hear ‘being too pretty ‘ get mentioned much and there’s a reason for that. The reason is being pretty is awesome thats why. That goes tenfold if you’re in the entertainment industry  especially in movies where your face and body are projected onto 50 ft screens. Being ugly doesn’t look any better on it not even a little bit.

Charlize didn’t come to America to act, she was a dancer and a model who got a contract to go NYC because you guessed it, she was really pretty! Shocking right. Then she ends up going to LA where is discovered by a talent rep at her bank after a screaming bout with a teller and almost 50 credits  later here we are. The ironic thing is that her most iconic  roles have been the ones where she is dirtied up and missing a limb like in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ or just straight up woof like in ‘Monster’

No one cares about a ugly person playing another ugly person but when you have a statuesque stunner like  Charlize and you make her look worse than usual it is much more interesting to see and I guarantee you that helped her clean up during award season.

Without being pretty Charlize would have never become a leading lady because without that she would have never got in the door and I’m ecstatic that she made it because she’s a talent along with being a knockout who can rock a bald head or long goldilocks. You don’t find that much because its hard to find that combination so maybe just ease up on being too pretty. Plenty of actresses would literally kill for your success, so heed Scuba Claude’s words and be happy like zee hippo.

**UPDATE**

Charlize just landed the main villain in the next Fast & Furious .  See its not all bad.

PS. Obligatory Charlize being Charlize

People I trust more than D’Angelo Russell

Most of us have heard about the D’Angelo Russell secretly videotaping Nick Young on SnapChat admitting to some indiscretions, his reasoning was that it was supposed to be a joke. Ha great joke man, got to remember that one next time I want to ruin someone’s life and my credibility along with my respect at the same damn time. If you want to know more details on it you can read about it here . But what I want to get into you is the some of the people I trust more right now than D’angelo Russell.

  1. Harry Ellis

df8cb5b0-b939-0132-4590-0ebc4eccb42f.gif

The businessman who worked with John Mclane’s wife Holly at the Nakatomi Corporation when it was seized by Hans Gruber and his henchman who were trying to rob it. Harry is much like D’Angelo being that he makes things uncomfortable between John and Holly by not so sneakily hitting on her by giving her a rolex for a present. But thats not even worst thing he did. He’s sleazy , loud, overtly cocky just an 80’s yuppie on the best performance enhancers money can buy. Then he sees his opening and seizes it when he sells Hans on how great he is and that he can help him and himself by giving up John’s location but really all he does is get killed for snitching.

 

2. Tim Donaghy

timdonaghy

The veteran NBA ref who was sent to jail after fixing games to control the point spread. At least you know when and where you are getting screwed with Tim so you can be on your toes with your head on a swivel and you don’t have to worry about a sneak attack.

3. Commodus

commodus-is-bored.jpg

I trust Commodus more than D’angelo because even though he smothered his father Marcus Aurelius and made it look like natural causes. He did it for a reason and that reason is because he wanted to be emperor. Being emperor is awesome and the perks are really great so I can see his motives. But why did D’Angelo send that video? It certainly wasn’t to be emperor or anything close.  The juice wasn’t worth the squeeze so tough break D’Angelo

commodus-o

4. Pinocchio

Pinocchio_1940

The main reason for choosing Pinnocchio is because I know where i stand with him. If he’s untruthful his nose literally grows so there is no absolutely no room for doubt.

giphy pin.gif

5. Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger

Petyr_Baelish.png

The Master of Coin and perhaps one of the most if not most skilled manipulators in all of the realm. He uses the information he collects from the brothels he owns to gain intelligence on political rivals so he can acquire more wealth. He’s a pimp and a blackmail artist and I still trust him more because I know where I stand with him. This list is all about expectations , and I would fully expect Petyr to exploit one of my weaknesses for his gain but I would never think my teammate would do it for no significant gain at all.

I still don’t understand what Russell had to gain out of all this but maybe thats the thing, there is nothing he wants to gain from it. Maybe he’s one of those individuals who just want to sit back and watch world the burn.

How Nike lost Steph Curry to Under Armor

(ESPN) In the 2013 offseason — coming off a year in which Curry had started 78 games and the Warriors had made the Western Conference semis — Nike owned the first opportunity to keep Curry. It was its privilege as the incumbent with an advantage that extended beyond vast resources. “I was with them for years,” Curry says. “It’s kind of a weird process being pitched by the company you’re already with. There was some familiar faces in there.”

The August meeting took place on the second floor of the Oakland Marriott, three levels below Golden State’s practice facility. Famed Nike power broker and LeBron James adviser Lynn Merritt was not present, a possible indication of the priority — or lack thereof — that Nike was placing on the meeting. Instead, Nico Harrison, a sports marketing director at the time, ran the meeting (Harrison, who has since been named Nike’s vice president of North America basketball operations, did not respond to multiple interview requests).

The pitch meeting, according to Steph’s father Dell, who was present, kicked off with one Nike official accidentally addressing Stephen as “Steph-on,” the moniker, of course, of Steve Urkel’s alter ego in Family Matters. “I heard some people pronounce his name wrong before,” says Dell Curry. “I wasn’t surprised. I was surprised that I didn’t get a correction.”

It got worse from there. A PowerPoint slide featured Kevin Durant’s name, presumably left on by accident, presumably residue from repurposed materials. “I stopped paying attention after that,” Dell says. Though Dell resolved to “keep a poker face,” throughout the entirety of the pitch, the decision to leave Nike was in the works.

Dell’s message for his son was succinct: “Don’t be afraid to try something new.” Steph Curry had thrived on proving people wrong for the entirety of his career. He had delighted in it, even. And Nike was giving him fuel.

If that’s so, that psychological damage was self inflicted. For all Under Armour did and for all Nike didn’t do, Nike still had an opportunity to salvage the situation when Curry indicated he wanted to sign elsewhere.

In 2013, Nike retained Curry’s matching rights, analogous to how NBA restricted free agency works. They still could have signed Curry, regardless of his preferences. According to a Sept. 16, 2015, report from ESPN’s Darren Rovell, “Nike failed to match a deal worth less than $4 million a year.”

 

In this way, Nike’s strength is indivisible from its weakness. As the top brand, it claims the most stars, by far. That’s a massive advantage, but basketball marketing is an act of minimalism. Promote too many athletes and the message becomes garbled.

It wasn’t a thankless effort for Bazemore, either. Now, three years later, he makes six figures annually with Under Armour

That has something to do with why Bazemore’s alma mater, Old Dominion, is now an Under Armour school. “We just signed Old Dominion, so that was kind of a giveback to Kent, so he’s happy about that,” Stone says. Under Armour paid nearly seven times what Nike was paying the school annually before

This was the condensed version of Ethan Strauss’ article so if you enjoy behind the scenes looks at the NBA and how shoe companies operate within the NBA I really encourage you to read the entire piece. So Nike being the juggernaut they are (accounted for 95% of sales in the basketball marker in 2014) thought they could half ass their presentation to Steph by first by sending in Nico Harrison instead of power broker Lynn Merrit who is involved in all major deals then reusing an old PowerPoint with Kevin Durant’s name still on it. Finally they certainly sealed their fate mispronouncing his name and never correcting it throughout the presentation. Well hot damn, I haven’t seen a pitch go that well since Tommy Callahan started slinging break pads in the midwest. It seems that Nike got complacent in thinking they are the end all be all in the shoe game , and that players would beg for there chance to be signed with Nike. Or that they decided to that they were going to push Anthony Davis and Kyrie Irving as their feature younger guys.  That seems more plausible to me looking from the outside in.

But despite that bang up presentation from Nike they would need not worry because when Curry’s deal expired in 2013 because a caveat in his contract that gave them the ability to match any offer Curry would receive and keep him.   Over the course of his final year with Nike coincided with Kent Bazemore joining the team. This turned out to be a key moment for Under Armor and Curry because over that next year Under Armor would flood Bazemore’s locker with so much gear he couldn’t keep it all. Soon enough the asst coaches , team personnel and players were wearing it. During that season Curry became more aware of what Under Armour could do for him and what he could for Under Armor.

Fast forward to signing day when Curry signs with Under Armour and Nike decides not to match their roughly 4 million a year offer for him. That amount doesn’t even make the top 10 highest shoe endorsement list.

#10 – Blake Griffin, $6 million/year, Jordan Brand

#9 – Damian Lillard, $10 million/year, adidas

#8 – Dwyane Wade: $12 million/year, Li Ning

#7 – Derrick Rose: $14.2 million/year, adidas

#6 – Kobe Bryant: $15 million/year, Nike

#5 – James Harden: $15.4 million/year, adidas

#4 – LeBron James: $20 million/year, Nike

#3 – Kevin Durant: $30 million/year, Nike

#2 – Stephen Curry: Terms undisclosed, Under Armour

#1 – Michael Jordan: $90-100 million/year, Jordan Brand

At the end of 2013, Under Armour had a 0.35 percent market share of basketball shoe sales and now in 2015  they have almost 3% of the market. That can be directly related to Curry One and his Championship MVP season.

icuaeohtcjqrb6wfy0x9

Which has pushed Under Armour into 2nd place behind Nike but ahead of Adidas which wasn’t the case prior to 2015.  Here is growth graph to see just how much of an impact Curry had

screen20shot202015-07-1720at2011.25.0220am

So far a little less than 4 million dollars a year Nike passed up hundreds of millions in sales  and the influence of the game’s superstars to hitch their wagons to Anthony Davis and Kyrie Irving instead. But its not just him they are losing but future players and thats where it could really hurt Nike in the long run and really give them a challenger. Remember this past summer Nike almost lost Durant to Under Armor. So far a little less than 4 million dollars a year Nike passed up hundreds of millions in sales  and the influence of the few  superstars in the game. This is shaping up to be a colossal miss from Nike , the company which has had very few ever. So very similar to how Steph is transcending the game maybe he can do the same to the shoe market too.

March Madness: Day 1 Thoughts

March madness started yesterday obviously and of course there were some big upsets. Starting with Baylor getting upset for the second year in a row after having to travel to Rhode Island to play a Yale team who took a 40 minute bus ride to the game when the other Texas teams playing got their game in OKC. No, before you ask I’m not bitter at all, just pointing out the facts. The game was called very tight down the stretch with some bail out calls when Baylor started to trap after a made basket, and the offensive foul called when the Yale player slipped at the top of the key and the Baylor tried to go by him. I’m still scratching my head about that one. The refs looked pretty eager those last few minutes. But ultimately it is a shot making game and when you don’t make enough of them you put yourself in a position to lose.

Moving on to the other upsets Little Rock toppled Purdue in double OT. They got there on the back of Josh Haggins who hit this deep step back three to send it to the first OT and set the tone for what was about to come

If you look closely you can see he shoots it from the bracket logo which is poetic because he busted so many brackets with that three.  Wichita St also took care if an underachieving Arizona team. Shitty draw for the Wildcats there playing one of the better teams with a couple of days to prepare and going against one of the better backcourt duo of Fred VanVleet/Ron Baker. What’s going on down at Arizona? They have had a top 5 class for the past 5 years I think with no results. That has to be frustrating, so frustrating that you sweat through your shirt watching it because you are so worked up

Cdy8B9pUYAEX93E

He came out at half with a new Jos. A Bank white button down on but much like the first go around the shirt stood no chance.

CdzLGz5XIAA2uJ4

Maybe invest in a Dri-Fit dress shirt material of some kind. Arizona is Nike sponsored so give them a call Sean it can’t hurt.

The other upsets were number 9 Providence over 8  USC with this late inbound play to seal it.

I really like this Providence team of some reason, they just look like they really play for each other a lot like Wichita St does and those are the fun teams to watch this time of year.  Also because Kris Dunn and their post man Bentil really get after it. Moving on to the next gameUCONN pulled out a close one against the Buffalos of Colorado. Silly Buffalos,they didn’t know that you have kill UCONN 9x before they die in March. Gonzaga also routed Seton Hall, but that one didn’t feel like much of an upset to me. Probably because  Seton Hall’s best player Isaiah Whitehead started settling for jumpers and went 0-10 from 3 instead going to the rack the whole game which he proved this season he really good at. 

Finally 4 seed Kentucky took on Stonybrook team who hasn’t been in the tourney for decades and took care of business. Kentucky as a 4 seed didn’t make sense so its good to see the tourney spreading around the f-u’s team didn’t stop with just a couple teams, and Coach Cal let them hear about it. But I didn’t get to see Ashley Judd in the crowd last night where she is staple in the crowd this time of year. Just last week she was at the SEC championship game looking mighty fit and exuding team spirit as usual

321BC7DA00000578-0-image-m-4_1457778113667

PS

It had a been awhile since I’ve last seen her and it got me thinking what are the best Ashley Judd movies. It has to be ‘Kiss the Girls’ & ‘Double Jeopardy’ with the top two and then everything else. If you like thrillers with female leads those were really entertaining plus Morgan Freeman and a balding Jeremy Piven are in it!

Turns out the reason Ashley wasn’t there was because she was at her new job with the UN

*UPDATE* Stop Daylight Savings Time….Pls

Can we stop with the farce that is daylight savings time already? Seriously to be still doing this in 2016 just bottles my mind. Daylight Savings Time was first suggested by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 and was unsurprisingly shot down by critics. So the country would have to wait until the First World War until the terrible idea hatched by good ol Benny to be implemented. The reasoning behind the change is at the time the country would use less coal and save other energy resources.  Then it made headlines again in the 70’s with the oil crisis.

But congress was not done there, it was tweaked in 1986 and then again in 2007 because they thought it wasn’t a difficult enough task for everyone and passed a law starting Daylight Savings time 3 weeks earlier and ending it one week later. Now maybe before everything was so computer integrated it wasn’t that much of a hassle to switch but in today’s world that is a major problem which ended up costing the US Economy $430 million in 2o1o alone.  Most importantly it fucks with your sleep schedule and no one wants besides those few who just want to watch the world burn.

**UPDATE**

Yep, stil sucks
