This is Not the Post You Were Looking For

  • Yesterday the swine flu hit the Internet. No, I don't mean the actual flu. I mean the general pandemonium of it. Twitter was on fire with messages about it. News sites were running reports. At the end of the day, what good did it all do?

    Let's keep in mind that roughly 155,000 people die each day for various reasons. It's really not time to freak out yet. That being said, I find it amusing that while the whole world was in an uproar, someone at the U.S. Department of Health was finding my blog by searching for Shaq:

  • Today I went to the Podiatrist. Apparently I have a very mild case of Plantar Fasciitis if anyone really cared. The fantastic part is the location of the doctor's office. It resides right here on the second floor of this building. Anyone see the problem? Two points if you do.

  • Alexis Gentry, the new Twitter voice of the Suns, and head coach Alvin Gentry's daughter recently asked the fans for nicknames for Goran Dragic. I posted a reply, which she actually mentioned.

    My family's nickname for Dragic comes from both his resemblance to my man-crush Steve Nash, and from my mother's tendency to mix up basketball players. Many a night we would walk in to the living room to hear Mom screaming, "Nash you fool!" A quick glance at the court would reveal that Nash was actually on the bench. Dragic's nickname soon became "Not Nash".

    "Oh man. Not Nash is on fire tonight."

  • Searching Google for: Best Story on Blogger has me as the #1 or #2 hit right now.
    Searching Google for: Babe of the Day puts me on the first three pages.

  1. Yeah, the swine flu thing is crazy and, by crazy, I mean the media's treatment of it.

    I had only been reading actual news stories about it or science blogs, so I was completely caught off guard when I finally saw how ridiculous the mass media was acting about the whole thing.

  4. This just in: there have been more cases of heart-attack deaths due to stressing about getting swine flu than actual cases of death from the flu itself. Irony anyone?
