Jason reveals a personal problem he has when riding certain roller coasters at Kings Island.
A lot of good things happened for the Pacers this week. Not only did they take game one against the hapless Atlanta Hawks, but Paul George was named the NBA's "Most Improved Player." And no offense to Paul, because he's earned the honor, but I've always thought that award was sort of a back-handed compliment. The voters are kind of saying "Hey, you weren't that great before this year... but finally you showed up. Congrats."
But back to the game. I have a feeling this series is going to be boring... something I feared going in to the Playoffs. The Pacers have a profile problem with the National Media in that they don't know anythinga about the them (Another good aspect of George winning the award.) Mix that with the nationals total lock of interest in the Hawks and you've got a series that no one outside of Indiana cares about. Let's hope we finish this is four games so we can get an opponent that might actually be covered by the press. If the Pacers are ever going to make it to the next level, they have to capture the attention of the national press, and that's not going to happen playing Atlanta. Bring on NY, Boston or Miami!
Fans of Star Wars, NBC's "Parks & Rec" or comedian Patton Oswalt... here's a video you all can enjoy. Apparently in an upcoming episode, the producers of P&R asked Patton to get up and improvize a "Citizens Fillibuster" by just talking about anything he felt strongly about. And that's exactly what he did, by talking about how he thought the new Star Wars movie should go. Very, very funny and creative!
It was only a matter of time before Psy, the Korean singer behind "Gangnam Style," released the follow-up to his monster hit. This is sort of a catchy tune, and the video features more of the same with some occasional winks to "Gangnam," and it's got a new dance. But will this be enough to keep him in the minds (and hearts) of the American public and pop culture? My guess is no... but who the hell knows anymore?
Yesterday Victor Oladipo entered the NBA draft effectively ending his time at Indiana University. Though he was unheralded coming in as a freshman, he made the most of his three years in the program, becoming arguably the most exciting player of the Tom Crean era. Here are a few of the highlights from his time with the Hoosiers. Goodbye Vic...
