This old Joseph Forte dunk on Kwame Brown that prompts Tommy Heinsohn ...

If you were to conjure the most random basketball highlight ever, it might include "Miracle" Milt Palacio -- he of long-ago game-winner fame -- feeding Joseph Forte for a dunk over Kwame Brown during a game that featured Michael Jordan on the Washington Wizards. You would want Tommy Heinsohn narrating the event because he would inevitably provide an absurdly over-the-top comment that would seem beyond laughable at the time, and far more zany 13 years later.

Time is Running Out to Try One of the Nation's Best Hot Dogs

On any given day the line for Hot Doug's goes out the front door, turns at the corner and trails off down an otherwise nondescript suburban street on Chicago's sprawling North Side. An hour-long wait to get in is far from abnormal, but it's gotten even longer since Doug Sohn announced he was closing his acclaimed upscale hot-dog shop, on October 4. "From literally the moment we put the announcement up that morning, business has changed, like drastically, as far as number of patrons and the length of the line," says Sohn.
