Everything you link in the box to the left
In the closet that's my stuff - Yes
If I bought it linky please don't touch
And keep talking that mess, that's fine
But could you walk and talk at the same time
And It's my link that is on that Jag
So remove your bags let me call you a cab

Standing in the front yard telling me
How I'm such a fool - Talking about
How I'll never ever find a link like you
You got me twisted

You must not know about link
You must not know about link
I could have another link in a minute
matter fact it'll be here in a minute - baby

You must not know about link

I can have another link by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable

Come on, you're making up names for the D-League West squad. Cut the bullshit. I'm surprised I don't see Dick Hertz and Heywood Jablomee up there.

I'm really torn here.

On the one hand, you linked two of the pieces of crap I've written lately, which is pretty cool.

On the other, I hate that damn song. It pops into my head, unannounced and uninvited, at least twice a day.

Speaking of which...I have to go bang my head against the wall. It's the only way to get the demon music out of my brain.

I have it on good authority that David Arquette is going to uncork the 360 in that game.

I'd also like to suggest a zen method for getting the song out of your head. Say to yourself "Schenshcer censures the censors" over and over.

And Manute Pole acutally is funny, because you nailed his idiot humor. If you just had a shock of flaming red hair and no self-respect, you could be at the All-Star game right now.

Do they not have an age limit in the NBDL? How much can a 30+ Randy Livingston further develop (he is the same one who played with Big Country in '95, right?)?

Being a UWM fan, I'm glad Clay Tucker is playing well, I hope he gets a legit chance in the NBA.
