I am amused by the number of people who seem to think I have some control over Team USA's cut process. Just saying what I think will happen.
Flanders having a full bar in his basement. It took more time to develop some characters than others.
How many times did Bart actually say "Don't have a cow, man?" I can't remember a time that wasn't self-referential.
This is the most PG-rated show there is.
My mom wouldn't let me watch the Simpsons until seventh grade which is hilarious in retrospect.
Wow … it doesn’t even look like Carmelo anymore. Impressive weight loss. http://t.co/nTVrfXyaxJ
Beautiful view of the skyline from the 33rd floor of the Loews. http://t.co/U8LKj5XRj3
The Simpsons invented mascot GIFs.
Plan according to Turner Construction is that demo on the old Macy's Men store will start next week.
"We're simple people with simple values" - Lisa Simpson, apparently
I'm told Turkish club Istanbul BB finalizing deal with Isaiah Swann, a Euro-veteran scoring guard with sick handles.
Wow, I just learned hitting COMMAND + DELETE backspaces an entire line. … editing myself just got a lot easier.
The Simpsons invented over-long national anthems.
I'm excited for the critical reappraisal of seasons 10-(15-ish?).
And make no mistake, Love to the Cavs make them a monster. Love-LeBron-Irving is going to be electric
Memphis pays Josh Pastner more than that. Nothing against Memphis or Josh Pastner, but come on. It's not like Barnes is stealing.
Unlike last year, there's no planned players-only August workouts for the Nets. D-Will organized it in Cali last year.
Again, deal is still being finalized. A few final steps to work through. But expected to be completed
Asked Derrick Rose about East being a race between Bulls and Cavs. He mentioned another team to watch out for: Charlotte.
For Flip to get Wiggins, Bennett AND Thad for Love (who was leaving), Shved, Moute and Miami's No. 1, hard to how he could've done better
"Oh, a political discussion at our table! I feel like a Kennedy!"
Byron Scott on Kobe Bryant: "I look at this young man as being a whole lot better than I was at 36, that’s for sure."
Byron Scott, on sticking to his minute limit with Kobe Bryant: "I don’t want to put him in jeopardy in any capacity on that basketball court
Byron Scott on Kobe Bryant: "He will be on the low box, he’ll be in the mid-post, he can be there a lot more than he has in the past."
Source confirms forward Omar Thomas is signing with Italian minor Ferentino. Deal worth over $200k.
Getting a first-hand tour of the downtown Plaza demolition for the Sacramento Kings' new arena today. http://t.co/e4akYUJqgH
Frank Tanana is NOT the player to be named later.( Sox-Angels trade)
Should also note that neither Barnes nor Garrido received new raises. Just the previously scheduled annual bumps.
Quoth the raven, "Eat My Shorts"
As long as it costs UT less than a year's pay to get out of the deal, the length of the extension is for show as much as anything.
No new buyout figures were released. Keep in mind Mack Brown was extended to 2020 after the 2011 season. It's a recruiting thing.
Wowza Gordon Beckham to Angels ( Fox Sports)
It's coming down hard at Nationals Park. LaRoche about to rope one in the rain.
Texas regents approve contract extensions for Rick Barnes (at $2.5M per year) through 2019 and for Augie Garrido ($1.04M) through 2017.

Cubs grounds crew to Ricketts: " Um, Tom...we could be a few bags short ( drying agent ) can we run to Home Depot. a sale is going on.."
Gio Gonzalez escapes a bases-loaded jam and Bryce Harper's error. When you're good, you're also lucky.
Not sure why Homer went to strangle Bart before attempting to rescue what was left of the hair product. Seems inefficient.
Drew Gooden just would've blocked Erik Murphy for Team Finland anyway.
And to clarify that, I’m not saying Klay should/does. I’m saying that I can’t imagine he ever would because the Warriors CHOSE him, not Love
Random thought from last night: That Feldeine guy can hoop.
Not sure why the Grizz are a clear choice in fan vote to fall into the lottery. They won 50 games with Gasol playing 59, and signed Carter.
Los Angeles Angels pitcher Garrett Richards will be out 6-9 months after suffering a torn left patellar tendon, the team announced Thursday.
According to amount of sneaker boxes he's packing, Josh Selby is moving to Israel FOREVER: http://t.co/GBkHYeLudU
Not that I’ve really heard he does, but why would Klay Thompson have any negativity toward the Warriors? THEY passed on Love in favor of him
More Rose: "With all the training I've done, I think I'm prepared for (the tournament). Just trying to get my legs under me a little more."
Only 30 more minutes until the first Treehouse of Horror episode aka when I get to go pick up food.
Rose to reporters after Thursday practice: "I'm feeling good. I'm gonna give it a go tomorrow. I could've played (Wednesday)."
Isn't Sideshow Bob in jail? Why is he holding hands with Otto and singing "Winter Wonderland" during this snow day?
Mystified Philly fans remember the value of Mbah a Moute - Embiid's mentor - in the deal
Miro Bilan and Mario Delas, according to source, to be cut from Croatia national-team. World Cup roster closed.
I went to Bill Snyder's Wikipedia page and ... I can't really argue with the length of his current tenure. http://t.co/rS8V85oLG0
And yes as of right now the plan is for a true three team deal
Looks like David Price is getting the same run support with the Tigers that he got with the Rays smh
Not only would you hit a HR every time you swung the bat — or even squared around to bunt — but the ball also went like 900 feet as a bonus.
I'll have some sort of five Monmouth camp takeaways post up late tonight, but here's one of the five: This freshman class? It's good.
One of my favorite sports video game cheat codes was the auto home run code on Triple Play 2000 for original Playstation.
There's a great Vegas tapas place that was temporarily closed for health-code violations. It's still an annual must for me. I'm forgiving.
Now that the Jazz schedule is in my calendar, I'm reminded how busy my life is during the season. So, how do we delete an imported calendar?
Nik Cochran signed in Holland with Groningen
Cade Davis signed in Greece with Nea Kifisia
Was pointed out to me that Embiid is extremely tight with Luc Mbah-a-Moute. Makes their end of Thad deal make a lot more sense.
I now know what it feels like to be pecked to near death by a bird.
There are still some final wrinkles to be ironed out, but that's how everything is shaping up. Optimism on all sides that it gets done
Seriously, suing a media outfit for a story that hasn’t yet been published — but has been in the works for 18 months — seems a tad unusual.
So much marital tension in early Simpsons seasons.
Numbers coming from this Monmouth, as meager as they are with several key guys taking the day off or being limited as camp came to a close.
Those are the types of plays people were expecting out of MU's first-ever Florida recruit got here. He's going to be a factor MU's secondary
Am I allowed to not count the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode as canon?
Terry Stotts calls Warren LeGarie, “The agent of happiness."
From there, it seems like the final spot will come down to one of the following being sent home: Korver, DeRozan, Parsons, Cousins, Plumlee.
Lamar Davenport caught a pass over the middle, but Leslie ripped it out of his hands and was out, about 50 yards to the house.
I'm told there is Hawk Vision video of this coming later, but the pick six Frosh CB Marcus Leslie had in this scrimmage was ridiculous.
Calipari an elite X's & O's guy? No, but he's a heck of a lot better than many give him credit. Obviously, biggest strength is recruiting.
DMX & 50 Cent wouldn’t believe if u told 'em in 2004 that in 2014 they'd be known for screaming on a roller coaster & a ceremonial 1st pitch
After being around the team this week, seems like Lillard, Drummond, Hayward will likely be the first three cuts.
Educated guess for Saturday: CLE gets Love, MIN gets Wiggins, Bennett, Young, PHI gets Shved, Moute, CLE #1 (from MIA).
14 pages into this novel and already LaMarcus Aldridge has grilled turkey burgers and Greg Oden has admired some art.
Don't you think if Wilson actually had a broken eye socket, the PD would have handed out x-rays in their smear-campaign packet?
Simpsons' understanding of the American legal system is very cagey
Getting more ink! http://t.co/MxUbu8mCTt
FYI: Most college coaches I have spoken to on topic feel that John Calipari is above-average when it comes to X's and O's.
My man " The Coach " enjoying a day in Chicago . Awesome broadcaster - better person http://t.co/IUj7CLpD9J
Last RT, ESPN Summer Forecast voters picked Spurs to win the Western Conference Finals next season with 232 votes, Thunder 159, Clippers 89
Assuming everything goes smoothly, expect a Wiggins/Bennett press conference in Minnesota on Tuesday.
I was just reading something about Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and he pops up on my TV screen.
Taking on say Steve Nash and mediocre Houston pick, while hurting their own selection from Lakers in 2015? Appealing to Suns? Doubt that
In terms of draft #1 = high, #30 is low - Lakers owe Suns their 2015 1st (top-5 protected) - Phx would prefer as high as possible, naturally
Mr. Simpson, was that you taking that cowardly dive into the display of heavily salted snack treats?
Whenever Bledsoe is mentioned in the news - I get a flood of Lakers questions - not sure Suns want to help lower the Lakers' 2015 pick
Anybody successfully imported the Jazz schedule into a Google calendar? Or do I have to type all 82 games in?
Pastner said K. Johnson weighs 230, needs to be down to 212. Which means I'm not the only one who should lose 18 pounds.
That's a wrap in West Long Branch after 79 offensive snaps. That's also a wrap for training camp. Countdown to the opener is at nine days
"Earth to Marge, I was there. The clown is G-I-L-L-T-Y."
The police sending an entire SWAT team to combat an alleged robbery in this Simpsons episode that aired in 1990
This is a Mexican delicacy called a "taco platter."
I spoke to Gooden about playing for Finland recently. He was optimistic about it, but admitted it was far from a done deal.
"He brought us gifts. His first unselfish act."
Reggie Miller was so compelling in his thoughts about Kobe Bryant turning 36 that I could dedicate an entire article to his quotes.
Morris has played on 4 NBA teams since being picked in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, including the Clips, 76ers & Grizzlies last year.
Brandon McCarthy might be my new favorite baseball player if he stays with the Yankees post-Jeter.
Lisa defending America's capitalism is the most unrealistic part of this episode.
Did he mean he wanted a fresh start with a scholarship?
In original Woodson transfer story Pastner said "he shared with me he'd like a fresh start." What happened to that?
During Ron Gardenhire's visit to the mound, I read starter Phil Hughes lips to say, "I'm alright. ... It's fine." Not sure what happened.
If they really want a guy who won’t listen to anybody … Rob Ford for MLSE CEO!
Matt Cassel: "I don’t know how much time we’re going to play, but I do anticipate playing a lot."
"Now this is what I call a party!" - Lenny
Maryland offered 2016 NJ PG @bryceaiken and Auburn offered 2016 NJ PG TJ Gibbs
D-Rose after practice THURS: "I'm feeling good. I'm gonna give it a go tomorrow & see how it goes ... just trying to stay positive til then"
Early Simpsons are jarringly wholesome.
Jeremy Lin's wax figure unveiling brings to mind about 10 potential Steve Nash wax figure jokes, but I'll restrain myself.
Halfway home in this second Monmouth scrimmage. Thirty-eight offensive snaps and it's be a defensive day w/several 1st team O guys resting
So much shade being thrown at SkyMall on FXX during every commercial break.
Also: 49ers believe trading a holdout is similar to surrendering to the tactics. They might do it, but want a huge price if they do.
