This Bitch Got Leveled

Women, this is what will happen to you if you try to get on the field with men. They are bigger, faster and stronger. They built the Eiffel Tower. With metal, and braun. It's called "survival of the fittest" and it's coming after your ass.

She would have been wise to listen to her teammates and stay down. Wiser, still, if she hadn't played at all.

Stupid woman.

Nike's New Sneaker Line

Nike announced a new sneaker line Tuesday that’s specifically designed for American Indians. From MSNBC:

The Air Native N7 is designed with a larger fit for the distinct foot shape of American Indians, and has a culturally specific look. It will be distributed solely to American Indians; tribal wellness programs and tribal schools nationwide will be able to purchase the shoe at wholesale price and then pass it along to individuals, often at no cost.

I wasn’t aware that there was a growing health issue with American Indians, specifically. I kind of thought it was the whole country, but that's fine. I just want to know what Adrianne Curry thinks of all this.

Besides, give them an inch and they’ll take a mile, is what I say. Next thing you know, they’ll be demanding they’re own land to build casinos with the hopes of taking all of our hard-earned money taking back some of what we stole from them fair and square.

The Bobcats Got Their Website. Finally

It's no lie, I don't have a lot of faith in the brain power of women when it comes to...well, anything, really - but especially sports and business. So you can imagine my shock when I learned that some woman, from rural Montana no less (they have the Internet already?), was able to fool the Charlotte Bobcats into giving her upwards of $50,000 for the rights to www.bobcats.com.

"It's called business," said Barbara Roe, owner of Bitterroot Bobcat and Lynx in Stevensville, a town of 1,500 people located in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana. "It's what you do. If you have a business somebody wants, you capitalize on it."

Roe said her business had used Bobcats.com for 10 years. She started receiving e-mails from Bobcats team officials in 2004 -- the team's first season -- about purchasing the name.

"They began at a couple of thousand dollars, but they wouldn't meet my price," said Roe.

It took the collective minds at an NBA franchise three years to come to terms with a woman who breeds large cats for a living. They don't deserve a website.

Hey, It's a Championship

I'm very aware that most people in the country don't watch the WNBA - and that most likely, even fewer kids know it exists than can find the United States on a map - but a championship is a championship, so here you go: the Phoenix Mercury beat the Detroit Shock in Game 5 of the WNBA Finals Sunday night.

In what must have been a blazing demonstration of the greatest fundamentals the game has ever seen, the Mercury pulled out a 108-92 win and brought the title home to Arizona, giving the state a sense of pride that the Suns, Diamondbacks and whatever hockey team is down there haven't been unable to do as of late. The win also marks the first time in the 11-year history of the WNBA that a team has won the title on the road.

Congratulations, Phoenix. Even though it was women that got you a title.

Gamers: Tougher Than you Think

It's time to stop looking down on those losers at Halo tournaments. They're athletes just like everyone else, subject to injury, disease and even death. A 30-year-old Chinaman who is suspected of dying from exhaustion brought on by a three-day Internet binge.

The 30-year-old man fainted at a cybercafe in the city of Guangzhou on Saturday afternoon after he ha been playing games online for three days, the Beijing News reported.

Paramedics tried to revive him but failed and he was declared dead at the cafe, it said. The paper said that he may have died from exhaustion brought on by too many hours on the Internet.

Seriously, Internet nerds are such pussies (and in no way am I excluding myself from that statement). We've got nothing on rockstars. Hell, Amy Winehouse finished off a night of heroin, ecstasy and cocaine with horse tranquilizers and survived. This guy surfs porn and collapses in an cybercafe of all places. Nothing about that makes him cool.

R.I.P. Adam Finley

It's a sad day in the world of blogging, as one of our own has passed away. Adam Finley, writer of Raise Your Children My Way Damnit and a contributer at tvsquad.com was tragically struck by a bus last Thursday in Minneapolis while riding his bike. He died at just 30-years-old.

I can do no justice, so please head over to tvsquad.com and read a touching memorial written for Finley by those who knew him and his work best.

Warning: Social Commentary Ahead

I’m not one for social commentary on this site, because most of the time I just don’t care. But unfortunately, I can’t help but be disgusted when I see this video that was featured on With Leather and Kissing Suzy Kolber earlier today. And, frankly, if Shaquille O’Neal can care about childhood obesity while contemplating an impending divorce, I can care about it while doing, well, nothing.

One time, Ellen DeGeneres made fun of how people eating popcorn in movie theaters - shoveling it in by the handful. Not this Colt’s fan. This kid completely threw all caution and dining etiquette to the wind and dove in face-first like he was eating from a trough (close, though it may be). I honestly couldn't tell if the crowd was cheering for this kid or for the actual game.

Blame his parents. They should be ashamed.

50 Cent was the Vick Snitch

Well, well, well. Lookee what we have here: Guess who it was that got Michael Vick into all this trouble.

Goldberg Talks Kitty in View Debut

I don't watch The View - although, from what I've learned it's a great show - but I did get to see a clip of Whoopi Goldberg's debut – in case you weren't aware, she's taking Rosie O'Donnell's place in the "comedian who used to overcome her looks with a crowd-friendly persona turned militant activist who everyone hates" role. Her first course of action? Defending wearied dog killer Michael Vick. When you break it down, Whoops isn't telling us anything Jamie Foxx hasn't already touched on, but she brings a new angle into it: "eating kitty." (stop laughing)

Goldberg compares Vick's "antics" to people in China eating cats and dogs, saying, "You know, from his background, this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," i.e. the deep south, and that "you and I would be really pissed if somebody at kitty." (stop laughing)

Unfortunately, while you can pick up fried cat in the drive through in China, you're not going to walk down a street in broad daylight anywhere in the south, smiling and waving at the nice gentlemen throwing money down on the dogs. Because, you see, they're hiding. From the police. And PETA.

Culture or not, Vick got caught doing something illegal. He's paying the price for it. C'est la vie.

I just wish these talk show bitches would shut up and start leaving social commentary to our society's true humanitarians.
