Stakes is oiqwjeoifgjjry,

(KG has to be the one at the head of the table with the yellow-ish suit, Jaric's the one rocking the white hat by the wheel, Madsen is the shaggy one looking nuts next to Garnett, Wally is the faux-dapper one all the way to the left, TG is in the corner on the right looking even more nuts. . . THC, some help here?)

The T-Wolves' impending trip to Vegas is old internet news by now, but, at the risk of stepping on THC's toes, I did want to point out some all-too-obvious jokes that no one's made. First off, you take a roster that includes the unhinged McCants, the brittle, oversexed Jaric, and the Troubled Griffin himself to the gambling capitol of the world? You don't have to be on staff at AOL to understand the irony of that idea. If you were a grouchy cynic, you could also bring the sky crashing down in groans with the suggestion that the Wolves are playing a certain Slavic variety of this fine game of chance.

Then there's the fact that, as much as we've always thought of the Wolves as a classy organization that was temporarily hijacked by the madcap likes of Spree and Cassell, maybe they're far more interested in personality than we'd ever dreamt. KG, for all his warrior-like prowess and tireless motivation, is kind of a weirdo (at least on the court). Maybe this newest roster overhaul, and a trip to a place that can do nothing but foster insanity in the heart of team chemistry, is an attempt to get back some of what they lost what Spree and Cassell's departure. Not that it really needs to be cultivated, but some of these cats are young, and Taylor may want to send them a message that it's alright to be a loon—provided you play. Following the model of KG, as they should've forever ago, or chasing whatever it was that got them to the brink of the Finals two years ago.

If this is the Wolves undoing, at least no one can accuse Taylor and McHale of conservatism. T-Wolves, welcome to the timeless FreeDarko party; as THC pointed out last week, expect a long, long ride down for your troubles.

Also included in the Vegas jaunt will be a team bowling trip and a team dinner, according to ESPN. I still cant believe that this is a news item, and I think it reflects what the Wolves have become. A colorful enigma. They could win anywhere from 41 to 57 games this year and KG could explode at any second.

You forgot to mention that Michael Olowokandi (accused rapist and recent stungun victim at Tiki Bob's chain bar in Indianapolis) will also be on the trip.

I'll have more on this later, but as a Wolves fan, I am in full teeth-chattering wait-and-see mode, until this roster is finalized.

from the site i found it on:

"Kaba Kick is a Russian roulette for kids. The player points the gun at his or her own head and pulls the trigger. Instead of bullets, a pair of feet kick out from the barrel (which is shaped like a pink hippo). If the gun doesn't fire, the player earns points"

and best believe that only the Japanese could come up with this shit. the sidebar invites you to "click here to see the camel spider" and "click here to see the japanese eel-dog"

I really like those pictures that you have for the post. it is a pity that flickr still takes them out. I think that you should use another service and Host PPH community can help with it.
