My Huge Beef with the NBA

So, whenever a superstar player drives towards the hoop and gets touched, it's an automatic foul? We've seen Michael Jordan, Kobe, Dwayne, and LeBron get this treatment from the refs, and I believe that it cheapens the game. It basically means that you can't play defense on them, and teams without a superstar have no chance of winning a series.

Thus, given that only a few teams have a superstar or will ever get one, then those teams have no chance of ever winning, and in David Stern's NBA, the only team that has won a championship without a hall of fame player was the Detroit Pistons in 2004.

If you hear Huey Lewis and the News coming out of his campaign bus, run like hell.

What Was It That Meatloaf Wouldn't Do For Love?

First, he says that he would do anything for love, but then he says that he won't do that. Yet, never specifies what "that" is supposed to be.

He even says that he would go to hell and back, and I can't even fathom a request worse than that one.

My guess is that he won't put the toilet seat down for love.
