Cat Fight 2!
July 31, 2008

Did you catch this last week?  From the arena that brought us the NBA’s most-famous brawl, comes a bench-clearing fight between the LA Sparks and the Detroit Shock of the WNBAMean Girls anyone?  And you thought race car driver Danica Patrick was tough.  Here’s the video posted by ESPN.  Crazy!

Man I’m Old!

Okay… so this is what news was like before I cared. But that’s not the story. The story is Nintendo, 1988 — the latest and greatest technology to capture the hearts and minds of children around the world… at least children with TV’s and parents that could afford the system… heck, if you were even allowed to have one. A lot of parents back then actually forced their children to go outside and play. Nowadays some parents would argue it’s not safe for their kids to play outside. Or maybe they like the cheap babysitter video games, TV, and now PC’s provide. Either way, our kids are too fat and Nintendo was the beginning of the problem. So here’s Fox News talk show host Bill O’Reilly, at his old post on Inside Edition, tossing it to the reporter who takes us inside “a world of danger, intrigue, and magic.” It’s the first Super Mario Brothers!!
