My favorite pair of legs on Earth have officially tied the knot.
Stacy Keibler married Jared Pobre, who I had to look up to see what this lucky son of a gun’s deal is. As much as I would like to knock Stacy’s new hubby and call him a chump, it turns out he is actually a pretty chill and successful guy.
Congratulations to Stacy. You have always been a dime and a bonafide babe.
And thanks to the new WWE Network I can go back and watch all your memorable moments in WWF, as seen below.

Weekend in Review
Knicks: Following a brutal February, the N.Y Knicks have reeled off three wins in a row. This weekend they were able to dominate the Jazz and defeat the Cavaliers; not great competition, but wins nonetheless. Whether they make the playoffs or not, this team flat out sucks. The good news? Phil Jackson might actually become GM. I refuse to believe the hype until I see action, but that would be a huge step in making me believe once again.
Islanders: Well, this team is worse than ever. Their loss Friday to Calgary would be a heartbreaker to any other team, but for the lowly Isles this is just what we have come to expect. After another blown 2 goal lead and some time to reflect on awful trade deadline deals, especially Thomas Vanek to MTL, it is time to break out the brown paper bags and place them over one’s head.
FGCU Eagles: Tough weekend for my alma mater. After a couple victories in the A-Sun tournament, there was never a doubt in my mind we wouldn’t win the finals and be heading back to the NCAA tournament. Unfortunately, Mercer won in our building Sunday. FGCU’s guard play in the first half led to terrible offense and a lead that could not be overcome, despite an unbelievable, valiant comeback with shades of Dunk City. As disappointed as I am, I promise the Eagles will make noise in the NIT and deliver a facial/poster or two.
All in all, there were more losses than wins: something I have become accustomed to. But like Billy Joel, I will be keeping the faith.

After defeating ETSU in a close match-up Thursday night, the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles will play Mercer this Sunday at 2 on ESPN. The game will crown the champions of the Atlantic Sun and punch a ticket to the Big Dance.
After a story book run last March, FGCU is looking to get back into the national spotlight. This year’s team has a different look but the result, especially of late, has been quite the same. They are healthy and determined to get back to the tournament. Coach Joe Dooley wanted his team to be playing their best basketball this time of year, and that is exactly what the Eagles are doing.
I, for one, cannot wait for Sunday’s game. I sincerely feel that FGCU is the better team and it would be a sight to see them back in the NCAA tournament. Whether they can replicate last year’s magic or not is debatable, but a victory Sunday ensures a ticket to the Big Dance. As we saw last year, anything can happen.
One more time for the rodeo: Let’s Go Eagles!

Sorry babe, but your chances of winning this case do not look good.
Rachel Canning, an 18-year old girl from New Jersey, has gained national media attention as she filed a lawsuit against her parents, claiming they abused her both verbally & physically. Her parents, on the other-hand, have stated that she doesn’t obey their rules i.e drinking often and going out with an older man.
This sounds like any father’s nightmare. A pretty daughter who is growing up and soon moving on to college. Getting drunk with her attractive friends and getting noticed by older dudes. What is remarkable is that this story is all over news outlets.
Sorry toots, you won’t be getting any financial support here. You aren’t special: seniors in H.S drink, party, and hook up all the time. Do it without your parents knowing.
Rating: Solid 7.0
Mt. Gox Trading $470 Million of bitco—and it’s Gone.
Nearly half a billion dollars from one of the largest bitcoin trading companies has “vanished.” According to The Wall Street Journal, the Tokyo-based Mt. Gox lost all of it’s clients digital money.
I never understood how Bitcoin worked or how the currency system was legal, but boy, did not expect a company to lose half a billion dollars and offer no solution. The money just vanished, and that’s that.
Good luck to those who put real money into virtual money; it appears you are shit out of luck.

Babe of the Day
All it takes is one quick glance to see how beautiful Laura Crane is.
Hailing from England, this 17-year old surfer may be young, but, she can shred. And she looks damn good doing it.
Fire up the bandwagon because I am a fan of this bodacious blonde.

Good Job, Good Effort Knicks
In what was not a shocking result, the New York Knicks took their “talents” to the American Airlines Arena and got obliterated by LeBron and the Heat, 108-82.
The game was surprisingly close at half, but in typical Knicks fashion the game got away towards the end of the third. The game was so lopsided that both team’s starters were on the bench for the final 6 minutes, labeled garbage time by Marv & Kerr.
Face-masked LeBron, who I couldn’t hate much more, finished with 31 points. Melo had himself a game, but, the rest of the team did not show up: Hardaway Jr. is in the biggest slump of his young career and the lack of quality players on this roster is evident.
Knowing the Knicks were going to lose, I bet Miami -9. Mine as well get some joy out of the misery that is the Knicks, right? And it wasn’t a total loss for NY sports. Big win for the Tavares-less Islanders…..Man, it sucks cheering for the orange and blue.
This meme saves me from writing an excessive and embarrassed rant in regards to The New York Knicks.
"Can I have some decorum please?"
