Who wants to go to the Final Four?

Seriously...it's in St. Louis this year...and the Illini are playing like they deserve to be in it.

Especially tonight...19-0 #1 vs. 38-game home winning streak (the longest active in the nation). As Dick Vitale would not stop saying all night, something had to give. And the boys from a little town called Champaign prevailed...though not without nearly giving me a heart attack.

On a somewhat related note, the NCAA Wrestling Championships are also in the Lou this spring, and I already (pretty much) have a ticket in the Boeing suite to the finals. The Illini wrestlers are 10-1 on the year, their only loss coming to #1 Oklahoma State, and are ranked #2.

March could be a good championship month in St. Louis for us...

Is this really necessary?

Sunglasses that play MP3s...check it out.

My verdict: a little over the top, but cool nonetheless.

The next big thing.

With the Consumer Electronics Show 2005 going on, we get a glimpse at the latest and upcoming gadgets for this year. In my opinion, the first manufacturer to find a way to combine a digital camera and an MP3 player in a practical way would have the hottest product on the market...at least until the imitators started eating up their market share. What amazes me is that I haven't heard anybody mention this idea.

Anyway, you heard it here first.

Favorite quote form "Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb".

What are you doing? There's no fighting in the war room!

(From the president to his top general, who has the Russian ambassador in a headlock.)

I thought I liked cleavage...

Don't get me wrong - cleavage is tite...as long I don't know the girl.

It seems to me that some girls think that they need to show half their breasts in order to get attention from dudes. But then those same girls complain about getting the "wrong" kind of attention from guys. I can't speak for all men, but I personally would not take a girl seriously (as in worth more than some quick action) if she was running around with her boobs hanging halfway out of her top. I probably toss around the term "slut" too much, but I guess I just prefer a girl with some class. I don't mind my woman wearing a form-fitting outfit, but I would prefer to still have to use my imagination a little bit. I think a woman can be sexy and confident without having to show it all.

Anyway, that's just one man's opinion, so take it for what it's worth...
