Jennifer Beals Is Black!!?!?!?

AOL ranks the sexiest black women over 40 years old, and Jennifer Beals is on the list.

I am sorry to admit my ignorance, but I never knew Jennifer Beals was black. I guess I never inquired into the makeup of The Steeltown Girl On a Saturday Night, Lookin' For the Fight of Her Life.

I guess it was true what Michael Sembello said, "in the real time world, no one sees her at all...."

Turn to that font of all wisdom -- Wikipedia (Michael Scott, "Anyone at all can post anything at all there, so you know it has to be correct!") -- yep she is 50% black.

Or, as John McLaughlin might say.........oh never mind........

Kid Rock -- Slap On The Wrist For Waffle House Brawl

As I stated here, what Kid Rock was alleged to have done outside a Waffle House in Atlanta is not, in any true sense of the word, a crime. But Mr. Robert Ritchie decided that the better course of action was to plead guilty to something and get a $1,000 fine, 6 hours of anger management counseling and 80 hours of community service.

That sends a clear message to every potential Waffle House brawler in the south (i.e. every single one of their customers): if you brawl in our parking lot and if you are a famous celeb and if it gets national attention and if the local prosecutor decides to prosecute you -- you might end up paying .000001% of your net worth and giving some speeches to kids!


Stop! Or My Mom Will.......Die!

Estelle Getty -- Dead at 84. RIP.

Marcus Williams -- Not A Timberwolf

Once the Wolves re-signed Sebastian Telfair, Marcus ended up going to Golden State for a low #1.

Sending Williams out toward Silicon Valley? Wow. Fox to the hen house there.

You have to click on the link above and read the comments on Williams. They range from "clearly better than Devin Harris" to "out of shape" and "good riddance."

The Telfair signing basically assures the Timberwolves an NBA title. Why is it, by the way, that the Minneapolis media cannot find out the contract terms of a player......ever?? I mean, do they have NO sources who can tell them -- "Yeah, it is a 4 year $10MM deal." Or "We got him for 3 years $6MM." Something like that?

Marcus Williams -- A Timberwolf?

As is reported here the Nets have basically give up on the oft-injured Marcus Williams and are going to sign Keyon Dooling.

And, what team is more desperate for point guard help than the Minnesota Timberwolves? I would say none. So............Marcus Williams? Wolf? What in the world would I do if he played up here and actually suddenly turned GOOD!?!?!? Yikes.

Unrelated note -- I think I am getting a new computer soon.
