Cats win/Ted Turner doesn't play around

Yeah the Cats won, they beat Washington (both teams entered the game 14-7) a team that barely edged out ASU, who is still 0-11 in Pac-10 play. Chase made a few 3's, Jawann's shot was falling, Jordan Hill killed a few people, everything was looking good for the Cats who beat the Huskies by 30, 84-54. Jordan Hill had a career high 16 points to go with 8 boards in his second career start. Quincy Pondexter wore black/3m silver Jordan V's. There is your micro-recap.

Not many things matter in my life right now because the NBA All-Star game is two weeks away. Not only the game, but All-Star weekend, which may be the greatest thing on Earth, period. Excessive everything: shoes, hoes, money, dunk contests, anything that is remotely baller is done up to the nth degree on All-Star weekend. I would give 40 years of my life up just to be an NBA all-star in Vegas for 24 hours. I can't even fathom what will go on behind the scenes.

Ted Turner and Co. really went all out this year getting Gap model Jeremy Piven to do some promos for the event. Although something I've always wondered is how come when a hi-def image is frozen it loses its hi-def quality. I never understood why you can't take a good frame from a hi-def video and have a nice still picture. Anyways back to the commercials

Finally a ridiculously dope commercial with the Blue Man Group.

I know there will be 82,394,328 blogs blogging away about the ASG, but 'Where's P-Mac' needed its fair share. I love this game.
