My Letter to the Ethicist
Take a look here. How ethical of me.

The WSJ is developing a sense of humor, it seems.
Here's a reason to love the Mets: their mischievous mascot. Mr. Met should really be getting a lot more cash for his commercials because he's just fabulous. If only he and Peyton Manning would be brought together for one spot.
There used to be a time in baseball when teams would assess their talent and then use the free agent/trade market to fill in their holes. For instance, if you had a bad catcher, you would see what catchers are available or on the trading block, and then doggedly pursue them. You wouldn't however see an available left fielder, sign him, and then tell him "by the way you're playing catcher."
Went to see King Kong tonight. Was a good movie but there was no reason it had to be 3 hours. They easily could have cut out an hour and the movie would have been just as good. That's the problem with movies now- I guess somehow it's not worth it to spend all that money on special effects if you're not gonna force people to stay in the theater for at least 2 1/2 hours. How that makes sense, I don't know. To be fair though, considering silver prices these days, it's really hard to blame them.
You know what's funny? Monkeys with hats. They just seem to make me giggle every time I think about them. See, there I go again? But I digress...
With their recent addition of Johnny Damn, the Yankees seem like the front runners to get to the World Series in 2006. I know we say it every year, but this year they seem extra committed to make that dream into a reality. How do I know? Because of the new bling they can take home and cherish. At reasonable prices, you have to think Damon will be buying A-Rod some diamond jewelry from this set.
I don't post often, or ever for that matter. But this story just freaks me out. Read more here.
Take a look here. It's down below the Sy Syms guys trying to impress you by using large words and convoluted sentences.
Look, I don't mean to come down hard on the current ex-leaguers who are vying for their spot in the Hall of Fame lineup. But with expansion, and the amazing growth of the game, there are simply too many deserving players retiring at a steady pace for certain less deserving guys to ever really have a shot. But that doesn't stop them from getting a vote here and there, possibly the result of someone's pity or practical joke.
Don't look at this blog anymore. It's probably the only way to stop Avo writing stupid posts that are geared to include advertisements. I have been a part of this blog from the beginning and it is very hard for me to say this but it is a necessary action. So until further notice, do not read this blog.
Top 5 places for a YU guy to meet girls:
While most of the semester I've pretty much coasted by not doing too much work, these weeks of finals are really a killer. See my daily schedule that I posted a week ago for more on this. Anyways, by this time tomorrow I will be halfway done. Then it's only a few more days before I'll be back home playing Pacman, Streetfighter, NFL Blitz, and all the other arcade legends that made my childhood so great. Can't wait!!
Seem the color orange is back at it again, this time protesting Matt Millen retaining his job despite underperforming as Detroit Lions' CEO.
I was actually prepared for this snowstorm today, heading off to work in gloves, scarf and hat. I was actually looking forward to the storm, so I could slay the beast, so to speak. But when around noon it became clear that it was mostly rain, I couldn't help but think that I was being played for a fool. But as I always say, tis better to prepare for the worst and to be played the fool, than to be stuck with an accutane lawsuit.
Note: The following is a parody of ESPN.com's fantasy basketball analysts. Do not confuse this for any one particular article; it's a synopsis of what appears on that site every day. Names have been held back out of fear of the columnists will come after me.

Sometimes even newspapers make mistakes...
"It's one of the things we're known for, hiring gorgeous staff," Pat James, Bar Mitzvah planner, says as he helps a bartender prepare martini glasses right before the start of festivities.
"This, by local standards, is a modest affair. Hundreds of New York bar mitzvahs cost $100,000 or more. Many top the quarter-million-dollar mark. If you're ready to spend that sort of money on a five-hour shindig for an eighth-grader, Pat James is the man to see."
Yes, I know people have been doing this for a long time, and it's not just New Yorkers who blow their money on these things. But I'm still wowed by it.
The Washington Post announces the weekend's upcoming area high school basketball games. Local people call in to inform them of teams and times, and they just print it in a small box at the bottom of the high school coverage. On Saturday they ran "Ramban at Hebrew Academy at 9:30."
'Redskins' Is Offensive. Period.
Current ESPN Headline reporting Kenny Rogers' signing:
Here is the list of NBA players who have been fined $10,000 by the league for wearing their shorts too long (below 0.1 inch above the knee):
So sue me, I haven't written in a while. Although I know all of you (Moro) look forward to my posts, I figured that if the Sports Guy took the holidays off, so could I. I had originally planned to take off from Thanksgiving till the end of Kwanzaa, but when I checked the blog today I must say I was quite disturbed. You see, there are many annoying things on the internet. We have popups, but if you don't like popups, you can get a popup blocker. But when I saw that our perfectly good blog has been littered with random advertisement links, I must say I was very disappointed. While I have been known to link to some weird things, I ask you all, who didn't enjoy that picture of a doody head? And let's be honest, Av would be lying if he told you that he didn't enjoy that link to the shirtless man. So, I'll leave you all with some great deals on travel for the holidays. (Alright, that is not a link to travel deals, but at least it's not a link to vioxx either. Which reminds me, what the hell is vioxx and why the hell is it so popular on the internet?)
The other night after a long day, Zubes and I devised a hilarious scheme: we went over to Bounce's place, rang the doorbell, waited for him to come outside to open the door, and then pelted him with snowballs. Such good times. I hope he doesn't sue us though, because then I will have to hire a vioxx attorney, and we all know how much of a hassle that could be.
Here is a list of my 5 favorite Beatles songs:
My life is so depressing right now. My schedule is roughly: 9am-wake up, 10am- go to Hillel where I study in the grad lounge, 12pm-lunch, 1pm-back to studying, 6pm-dinner, 730pm- back to studying, 12am- go to sleep. It's ok though because I listen to depressing songs all day to drive the depression even deeper in. As long as I don't end up with one of those Risk Management Jobs, I'll be happy though. Those are the worst.
For the last week, many of us have been getting much of our baseball information and rumors from a site called Metsblog. However, I will not be relying on it any more because it is clear that Metsblog, much like NFL.com and CNN, lies. They said that the Mets were getting Zito and now today they say that they won't. I call that lying. As punishment, I decree that Pet Tags should be placed on each of the writers for Metsblog so people will know that much like pets, they are liars
See, here's the thing. Brett Favre's finger is falling off and he still decides to go back into the game. He's tough. We know that already; it's a given. To play 206 consecutive starts at quarterback you have to be.
