Today's Top Five: Closer to [Shamm]god

1) Finally, the Wizznutzz chime in on God Shammgod, but with much, much more magic than we deserve. Sorry to be so late on this, but Shammgod is apparently playing on 11-foot rims in the Pacific Northwest, and also for some IBL team, and the Wizznutzz "saw the face of Ledell Eackles on a grilled cheese sandwich." Also, there's a Wizznutzz audio book.


2) Via a truly genius Capitol Punishment post on Skittles and Beer, I came to this We've Got Heart item: "Prior to Stan Kasten's decision to ban alcohol in our clubhouses, the Nationals were 9-25. After that decision, the Nats are 20-12." The reason? No more games of Louisville Chugger, I guess.

3) Via The Big Lead, this Name of the Year post is truly remarkable. It's a real name that I feel uncomfortable posting on a family blog. Go over there if you must.

4) The Caps can't even win any awards from snarky bloggers. C'mon, The Sporting Orange. Chris Clark's season-long gum hole isn't worth anything?

5) This has been extensively linked, but since it was in my inbox, I don't feel guilty. Lion in Oil, on the perfect tennis injury for the blogging generation.

The Spurs are not a dynasty (Winning the Turnover Battle), and the Spurs give the lie to Dostoevsky, or something, (Pounding the Rock), although I like to imagine Ron Artest as The Idiot.
