We are no fans of Mike and Mike on ESPN Radio. We are Howard Stern fans first and foremost. I find Mike Greenberg to be overly cheesy, they talk nothing but NFL, and their married couple bit is tired. As it turns out, ESPN threw a celebrity roast in Atlantic City this past weekend. From all reports, it was too long, not very funny, but had some pretty interesting side events. According to The Press of Atlantic City, ESPN First Take's (does anyone really watch that piece of garbage) Dana Jacobson "made an absolute fool of herself, swilling vodka from a Belvedere bottle, mumbling along and cursing like a sailor as Mike & Mike rested their heads in their hands in embarrassment. (Eddie) Griffin came to the podium to defend her after she was booed by the crowd. Ross eventually had to pull her off stage, too." Awful Announcing has a good recap as well.
Any of you who think Tom Cruise is normal, please watch this video. The guy has about 20 screws loose. Seriously, he is obsessed with Scientology and thinks he is the messiah. I'm serious. Poor Katie Holmes. She is completely brainwashed.
Speaking of crazies, Britney Spears freaked out and fled in the middle of her children's custody hearing. This is all going to end so badly for her. I always said she'd do Playboy eventually, but at this point,do we really want to see that? Uh, yeah!
Mad Props out to The Sports Yenta for penning an award winning piece titled: Tale of the Tape: Lyla Garrity vs. Tyra Collette. A must read for all lovers of Friday Night Lights, the best show on TV. Best line: Biggest Mistake: Tyra: Local poon-hound and Dillon High School fullback Tim Riggins. Lyla: Local poon-hound and Dillon High School fullback Tim Riggins. Advantage: Push
More reason to hate Michigan fans, their graduation was moved to Eastern Michigan's Stadium because of renovations at the Big House. This has started World War III.
In case you cared, Chris Webber claims he'll be back in the NBA in the next two weeks. Is there any old timers game being played somewhere? Webber says "I have three teams in my head, that I don't want to say, but I know I'll be back." I pray that none of those three teams is the Cavs.

It's Judgement Day Part II at 9:30 this morning. The MLB Congressional hearings begin. ESPN.com's TJ Quinn and Mark Fainaru-Wada say these hearings will go a long way to defining Bud Selig's legacy.
#16 Pittsburgh 69 #6 Georgetown 60 - We told you this weekend we didn't think Georgetown was for real and they did nothing to dissuade us. Their schedule has been Charmin-soft and the two solid teams they have played on the road have controlled them. First Memphis, and now Pittsburgh. You have to keep in mind Pitt is playing with essentially six guys and without their starting backcourt. Roy Hibbert went back to be a big non-factor as he was just 3-7 from the field and couldn't handle the quickness of Panther Freshman Dejuan Blair, who greatly outplayed him. Blair finished with 15 and nine boards. It was the Pitt backcourt that was actually the difference. Ronald Ramon and Keith Benjamin continue to grow with each passing game they okay together. They both had 18. The Hoyas shot a porous 3-20 from deep which is beginning to become a trend for them. Other than PG Jonathan Wallace, they aren't showing any sort of consistency shooting the ball.
#3 Kansas 85 Oklahoma 55 - I am running out of superlatives to describe the Kansas Jayhawks. Yes, Oklahoma's leading scorer Blake Griffin sprained his knee five minutes in, but at that point it was already KU 20-4. The KU Guards did their usual swarm job on defense, collecting nine steals. The frontcourt duo of Darnell Jackson (17 and 8) and Darrell Arthur (14 and 8) were unstoppable. The aggressive Brandon Rush showed up for his second consecutive game, nailing four threes on his way to 16 points and nine boards. Mario Chalmers was 4-5 from the field for 13 points. Sherron Collins added nine. Credit Oklahoma PF Longar Longar for looking good in the post, scoring 21. In our next post, we will go in-depth about the game. "They are the best team we've played and we have played some really good teams," said OU coach Jeff Capel. "They are so balanced. They shoot better than Memphis. They are bigger. They are probably equally as good in transition but this team passes the ball better. I don't think it's close, this is the best team in the country."
