Out of the Blue

It seems Linsanity has gripped the country, so you can only imagine how Linsane it is at this point in the New York area. It's to the point where my buddies have raised the concept of actually attending a Knicks game, a prospect we haven't entertained since the days of Ewing and Oakley. The kid is a turnover machine, but he also looks like a real player, and if it turns out he isn't, I hope you can forgive the hysteria from a basketball loving town that hasn't had the chance to root for a champion since Nixon was in office.

The Knicks have had some good teams post- Nixon, and came just short of winning it all in'94. I remember it well because it was the same year the Rangers won the Stanley Cup. What a year for NY teams! That will NEVER happen again...

Anyone ever have troubled getting to the STORE page in Steam? Sometimes it just stays stuck on the community tab....

It was acting a little wonky last night while I was looking for skyrim mods. Not unlike when it shit itself on Sunday.

Well after LeBron didn't do shit in the league, they needed someone else to gravitate to, especially now that football season is over. It is kind of interesting that this complete nobody was suddenly put in the game and has been kicking ass, but it doesn't seem very likely that he's going to be sticking around as some kind of headlining force on that team. After all, nobody wanted him coming out of college and he was passed around a couple third-string rosters with little to no play until he was put in a Knicks game because everyone in front of him was injured. Just saying, there's a reason you've never heard of him before... Hell, he was almost cut from the Knicks last week!

He's the Bo Hart of the NBA. I give it a month.

Really Creston? Do I need to start linking your posting history about 'YOUR GAME'? (Yes I'm refering to X3).

What about that? I bought that on the day it was released!

Nobody needed to tell me I'd enjoy the shit out of X3 after I put like 700 hours into X2.

Good news -- set record for most points scored in his first five starts, beating Shaq's record.

Bad news -- set record for most turnovers in his first five starts.

Has anyone played World of Goo? I just bought it.

I played it a bit when it came out for Wii, but to be honest I sort of a hit a wall on one of the levels and got frustrated.

Since then I've tried a few other games like it on different platforms and I've decided that maybe those types of games aren't for me.

Maybe people will finally see that NBA Basketball is the best in the world. Now the NCAA Tourney is the most exciting but no team would ever beat a NBA team, It wouldn't be close.
