Various bits of flotsam that washed up on our computers, before we moved to a better blog system in November 2004. Now a repository for YouTube videos and testing new tools. Go to for more recent content.

Excellent hoops by Wiley

Ralph Wiley is one of the better sports writers, especially regarding the NBA (even if he doesn't respect the Sacramento Kings, who could with all their game 7 choking?) Page 2 - The Lakers' armor is tarnishing:
"This seems as good a time as any to examine the Laker Myth -- the premise that this is one the great basketball teams in recorded American history (if not the greatest team in history) because it is perhaps (and perhaps not) about to win its fourth NBA title in five years with Kobe and Shaq, the Irresistible Force and Immovable Object of basketball, and various supporting players"

Read this rumination on race, sports, and hoops, you'll be happy you did....

Now playing in iTunes: Pay Day, from the album Today by Mississippi John Hurt
