nba playoffs start today. they should end around labor day. here are my first round picks. ill start out with the knicks in five over the toronto raptors. this is a bit of wishful thinking as the knicks have limped across the finish line to end the season. if nothing else, we can hope that pride and homecourt advantage will pull them through but they could just as easily be swept out of the series. Xfactor: will marcus camby be effective coming back from a hip injury? the heat should burn through their series with the hornets. ill take milwaukee over orlando in four. the philadelphia versus indiana series is tough to call but ill stick to the sixers in four. in the west look for the lakers in four, the kings in three, san antonio in three and dallas in five. nothing earth shattering in those predictions. well?

i was at this game. it is the only goal i remember from the games i attended as a kid at giant stadium. it was during the shootout. instead of penalty shots as they use now, the players would take the ball from the 35 yard line and dribble in for a shot. just a player and a goalie. normally, the player either tries to fake the goalie out and dribble by him or he has a plan to shoot at a specific area of the goal. carlos alberto dribbled in slowly from straight on and drew the goalie out. then he popped it up on his knee and arched it over the goalies head and it plopped down into the goal.
"He glanced adoringly across the room at Carlos Alberto, still suave at 56, and recalled the shootout in 1978 against Minnesota. "He chipped it in the air, off his knee, and then he chipped it over the goalkeeper," Sakiewicz said, marveling at the ball skills of the old Brazilian lion."well?

Haaretz Daily -- litigation considered by two us jews against the us government for not bombing auschwitz when they had the opportunity. more about hearing the evidence in court than exacting a monetary windfall. well?

""The Center of the World" may be the first mainstream movie to seize the essence of geek life at the turn of the century -- from IPOs to online porn -- without collapsing into caricature. Filmed using a digital camera, and featuring a lonely programmer entrepreneur as a protagonist, "Center of the World" serves as a neat little study of the ascendant species of geek. This doesn't mean that techies come off looking rosy, though: "The Center of the World" is ultimately a warning about the isolation of life behind the monitor, casting a concerned eye at the troublesome sex lives of geeks. Richard may believe that "the thing about computers is that you're kind of connected to everybody and everything, it's like you're at the center of the world"; but in Wang's film, the final message is that geeks are connecting to nothing at all."well?

by all accounts, nbc import "the weakest link" doesnt necessarily translate to american audiences. britons may like to be put in their place but we dont like to be told that we are wrong. however this form of press release journalism seems distinctly american although maybe im biased. here (looks like they yanked the link. probably a lie to begin with.) is a report from england which implies that the tart host of the show has bodyguards to protect her from americans who might be angry at her caustic questioneering. yes, thats right. america, of the guntoting tots, is so worked up after two hours of bad television that weve put a price on her head. anyone who returns with her scalp gets a free big screen tv and a guest spot on regis. if it wasnt so laughable, i think id be crying. but im talking about it which was the whole point of the article anyway. damn, you win again. well?

a confederate submarine was recently unearthed in the waters outside of charleston south carolina along with its ill-fated servicemen. when told of the wreck, resident bush vowed to the families of the victims that their deaths would be avenged. "you just dont do that to americans and not expect retroaction," bush said. when advised that the confederacy sought to destroy the union, bush added that he supported naptha and all those hard working mexicanos who clean out the stables at his ranch in texas. well?
