This couldn't get any better if it was scripted

As a Kobe-hater extraordinaire, I find this latest bit simply delicious. I don't know what the future holds for this pathetic saga, but one can only hope it includes an OJ-like ostracizing of the Laker's Chosen One.

Those who aspire to be the next Jordan should take heed of what has happened here: prove that you can win when you're the man before you get involved in extra-marital scandals. Then the public doesn't hate you as much. Oh, and listen to your lawyers when they tell you to not do press conferences.

Does Vanessa have to wait until the 10 year mark to get half? Or does she have a case for it already? I want answers, dammit!

I don't know when the Lakers will trade him, but I think that they will. The day cannot come soon enough, because I would like to resume my role as a Laker fan, something that has been taken from me by the Arrogant One.

That's because it actually is scripted. For a number of years now Stern has been slowly transitioning the NBA into the Professional Wrestling format.

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…
