"Hoop Dream for Autistic Player"

Autistic Teen's Hoop Dreams Come True

(CBS) It was the stuff of Hollywood, but it was real.

Senior Jason McElwain had been the manager of the varsity basketball team of Greece Athena High School in Rochester, N.Y.

McElwain, who's autistic, was added to the roster by coach Jim Johnson so he could be given a jersey and get to sit on the bench in the team's last game of the year.

Johnson hoped the situation would even enable him to get McElwain onto the floor a little playing time.

He got the chance, with Greece Athena up by double-digits with four minutes go to.

And, in his first action of the year, McElwain missed his first two shots, but then sank six three-pointers and another shot , for a total of 20 points in three minutes.

Check out the CNN Video:

Sample entry:

Have you ever been in a situation
where somebody you thought was your friend did something that hurt you very much, and then they tried to blame it on you? And then that person waited 18 hours to report it to the media, and that person's colleagues tried to make a joke out of it, until you had a heart attack? Just wondering.

"We can't get Bin Laden, but we nailed a 78-year-old attorney."

"That's the big story over the weekend. ... Dick Cheney accidentally shot a fellow hunter, a 78-year-old lawyer. In fact, when people found out he shot a lawyer, his popularity is now at 92 percent."

The good MD basketball team...

got an article in usa today.

Frese points Terrapins women on road toward top

The No. 6 Terps (22-2) are a program on the rise, off to their best start in 17 years, with losses only to then-No. 1 Tennessee (Nov. 26) and then-No. 2 Duke (Jan. 8). Maryland is coming off a Thursday road win against previously unbeaten and No. 1 North Carolina and gets a chance at revenge Monday night on the road against No. 2 Duke.

"We still have growing up to do," says Shay Doron, a junior and key member of Frese's first recruiting class. "But we grew up a lot against Carolina. To pull out a game like that (down 14 points with 12 minutes left) shows a maturity, shows how far we've come in a couple of weeks."

U.S. Can Watch Olympics Online

NEW YORK -- NBC is significantly expanding its Olympics video offerings for the internet and cell phones, a sure sign of its increased comfort with technologies that erect geographic boundaries online.

The network's official Olympics site, NBCOlympics.com, will show for free, on a delayed basis, the complete runs and routines for the top finishers and for all U.S. participants in almost every event, with highlights provided for team sports like hockey, said Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics.

Mark Cuban Rules

Cuban's response to Phil Jackson bitching that Cuban intimidates the refs

I Own Phil Jackson

Not literally of course. That thrill belongs to the smartest businesswoman in professional sports, Jeannie Buss. Figuratively however, the coach formerly known as the Zen Master must now be considered my bucket boy.

This wasnt an acquisition I proactively pursued. There wasnt an official competition that I won, thereby confirming my dominance of his psyche. Instead Phil has initiated an ongoing commentary about me that started in his previous stint with the Lakers and was reinstated this year with his return, that proves that I own the guy.

For whatever reason, I have gotten to Phil so completely and thoroughly that every time he comes to Dallas he has to offer unsolicited
comments about me to the media. I wonder if he dreams about me the nights he spends here in Dallas. Ok, I dont wonder. Im curious about it.

Cool USB Stuff

More cool USB devices...

USB Cuffs:

Small and plain, usb-sticks are often forgotten, still sticking to the computer or just lost somewhere on the way.

But in a symbiosis with jewellery the little item gets a big value. Also, it completes the personal outfit as a fashionable accessory.

The cuff, made of sterling silver, is beautifully functional. A usb-stick with such a value is never forgotten – guaranteed.

F the DC City Council

Update: Thats what I get for going to sleep before 1am. The Council ended up voting again and voted for the Stadium....they still suck anyway though


Quality editorial about the stupid political posturing bullshit that is screwing up the Nationals and really DC all together:

No Joy in Mudville:

The only folks who want a team here are the 2.7 million fans who paid to attend games last season, the businesses that were prepared to build a whole new city neighborhood in Southeast, and the few city politicians who saw that this was a way to expand the tax base and help lift all boats in the District.

Those who didn't want the Nationals here: A small contingent of protesters who resented the idea that suburbanites might want to come into town and spend big money here and a handful of politicians who couldn't see that even the tough deal that baseball made would have meant a mint to the District. The political calculus was poisoned by political ambitions, the rancid mix of race and class issues that so often spoils progress in Washington, and the failure of all parties to make the effort to sell the deal to the public.


This was never about money. That was proven tonight, because the decision to reject the lease means that baseball will take the city to arbitration and eventually to court, and because baseball has a signed contract, baseball will win, and the city will have to pay enormous penalties. Everyone on the council knows that, yet they decided to stuff baseball anyway. They did it for the headlines. They did it for the rabblerousers. They will say they did it to save money, but they won't save money. They will lose more money than this deal was ever worth, both in terms of penalties paid to baseball, higher costs if they are eventually forced to build a stadium and, most important, an incalculable loss of future business. Who in their right mind would now do business with the District of Columbia?
