— The low down on why Maryland My Maryland cannot be trusted on the road against a quality (or near quality) team (we smell trouble for Turgeon’s turtles in Bloomerton)
— A play by play color commentary for Match Game … Among other questions that inquiring minds want to know: What is the deal with Rayburn’s obnoxiously long microphone? What was Charles Nelson Reilly’s claim to everlasting fame (give my regards to Broadway)? Has there ever been a better porn stache than Richard Dawson’s? Was that Kid Dynomite wearing a pork pie hat ala Mush Mouth and the Memphis Tams? What happened to fashion sense in the 70’s?

The NBA lost a larger than life figure and symbol of basketball excellent today, when Kobe Bryant passed in a tragic helicopter crash.
Basketball fans everywhere will almost certainly remain in shock for days, weeks, month and years to come. Kobe’s loss weighs most heavily on Laker fans, who saw the reemergence of their franchise as the dominant power in the NBA with his joining the team in 1999.
Kobe’s accomplishments and his place among the greatest of the great are undeniable and forever etched in history, including 5 world championships, 1 MVP, and 2 NBA Finals MVPs. In addition to his prolific scoring (now 4th on the all-time list), he was a tenacious defender (3-time All NBA defensive team).
But what stands out is his confidence and ability to take (and make) the big shot in the clutch. He was a stone, cold killer when the game was on the line, as witnessed when he took out the Boston Celtics in Game 7 for his final title. He was also the consummate showman, … always dazzling in the All-Star games (3 time All-Star MVP), and inspiring a generation of new players with his brilliance.
There will never be another Kobe, and anyone who had the privilege of seeing him exhibit his talents knows he was a once-in-a-lifetime star.
Rest in peace Mr. Bryant.
