Jannero Pargo Signs with Dynamo Moscow
What's the worst basketball injury you've ever seen?


By 08.15.08

What to watch for in this weekend's biggest matchups.  One side or another in ALL CAPS.

Usain Bolt over TYSON GAY – It looks like we're heading towards a showdown between Gaybolt and Asafa Powell in the 100-meter final. I know exactly nothing about sprinters, but seems to me that a guy nursing an injury (unless he's Tiger Woods) doesn't stand much of a chance against the current world record holder. Besides, the bolt always come before the gay. What's gaiety without the ZAPP!

Michael Phelps over MARK SPITZ – Pretty obvious by now, isn't it?

LOS ANGELES DODGERS over Milwaukee Brewers – "Oh my Gaaaahhhhh! Manny cut his hair and didn't get any hits the next game! He must be like Samson!" Die.

VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA over Tropic Thunder – A literal threesome involving ScarJo, Penelope Cruz and a dude hands down beats the comedy threesome of Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey, Jr. Even if Downey is awesome.

Washington Redskins over NEW YORK JETS – I'm not talking about the game, per se. It's the preseason. Who gives a graham-crusted fuck? I'd just like some Redskins to fall over Brett Favre's trachea in his first appearance in a Jets' uniform.

And so marks the end of another drudging August week of near-nothingness. Don't worry, another one is just aroud the corner. Then another one. Then comes the good stuff! You'll see.
