Today, they would just give the ball to Lebron at the top of the key and let him bull his way to the basket for a slam dunk, without the need to dribble.
Entertaining, but not basketball.

Close but not exactly correct. Lebron would get the ball take 2 maybe 3 steps and then put the ball on the floor before he runs over someone and slams the ball.

NBA games would be more interesting if they just played the fourth quarter, the only time any effort is exerted.

LOS ANGELES – Actor Jeff Daniels, star of the HBO political drama series "The Newsroom," appeared on Chris Matthews' "Hardball" show on MSNBC on Thursday. During the interview, Matthews expressed his admiration for the Aaron Sorkin drama, in which Daniels plays anchor Will McAvoy.

"It's the most organic show I've ever watched, it seems to come out of itself every week, it seems to grow like a human being," Matthews enthused. "That's what makes it so unpredictable and so fascinating to people."

The news host went on to praise the cast, including Emily Mortimer and Jane Fonda, before closing out that they keys to the show are "honesty" and giving audiences "something to take away."

Matthews happily mentioned his son Thomas has an acting role on the show, but what he failed to disclose is that he is also a paid contributor. The Hollywood Reporter revealed this week that the MSNBC host, along with the likes of former CNN president Rick Kaplan and anchor Ashleigh Banfield, cash "Newsroom" checks.

"Matthews hilariously praised the show’s 'honesty' during his five-and-a-half minutes with Daniels, but never once did he admit that he is one of the 13 paid consultants working 'to make season two as realistic as possible,'" said Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center. "Apparently, Matthews never heard that honesty is the best policy."

Media critic and author John Ziegler said Matthews will simply "get away with it because no one on the left will call him on it and his audience won't ever even know there was an issue."

Communications pro Glenn Selig concurred it was quite a misstep. "Chris Matthews has a vested interest in seeing the show succeed, because he is making money, and because his son in on the show," Selig said. "There is no doubt that he should have disclosed that information to the public. The fact that he did not, makes it appear as though he is trying to hide something. It comes across as sneaky."

A rep for MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hmmm, the 9th inning in baseball, the 3rd period in hockey, the last 30 seconds of a soccer match, 18th hole in golf, I see where you're going with this. Just don't mess with Homer's football.

First off Carol many of these groups especially Tea Party groups aren't conservatives. Barry Goldwater was a conservative as was Everett Dirksen, Jack Kemp Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower and Bob Dole. The current crop in the house like Erik Cantor, Paul Ryan, Louis Gomert and Michelle Bachman are radical right wingers. Testimony has already established that the employees in the Cincinnati office overwhelmed with 501 applications sought some way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
And yes we do need to fear these shadowy right wing organizations that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy. They want to reduce the American workforce to wage slaves solely to line their own already bulging pockets. They use fools like you, pandering to your irrational fears and bigotry to further their ends.
This is the best post of the day. Homer can't compete with this.

Just in case here was ever any doubt.
"real dumb"
You are amazing, absolutely amazing. You post pure BS and you get a slew of posts directed at you pointing out your stoopidity. On occasion, very rare occasions, a liberal loon will agree with the crap you so ineffectually try to spread. On the other hand "Whatever" thinks a bit before he posts and offers something of value and few on this thread rail into him as being a liar, a troll, a hypocrite, a bigot or a racist. Why do they not, because he is not. Keep it up, you are a liar, a troll, a hypocrite, a bigot and a racist, your posts on occasion do bring forth a chuckle.

Jeff Daniels Ex-Lax scene from "Dumb and Dumber" is perhaps the second best 45 seconds in the history of film making.

Doctors tell people that they can have a normal EKG and collapse with a massive coronary while leaving the office.

MIs cannot always be predicted.

Have you ever watched a live golf game? The 18th hole is too much golf in my opinion.

Just so realtime can say it's bullsht.

My wife (she was still my gf) got invited to watch the Pebble beach Pro-Am in Monterey by CDW. We sat in their booth at maybe the 7th hole. here's how the golf game went.
