This one's for you, mdesus!
Shoals is still in Portland, trying to locate Jerome Kersey's old record collection, so he asked me to let y'all know about a couple of his recent posts over at Sporting News. First up is a YouTuber featuring Bill Murray holding court at the United Center, which you should enjoy even if you think (as I do) that "Lost in Translation" is crazy overrated. Next is an analysis of the All-Star H-O-R-S-E game, the mere existence of which seems like evidence of the blogosphere having too much power. You should know that Shoals writes over at SN all the time, so keep an eye on it!
While I'm here, I should let you know that Adam "MCA" Yauch's documentary "Gunnin For that #1 Spot" is now available on . The film was shot back in 2006 at the first annual Boost Mobile Elite 24 Hoops Classic game at the legendary Rucker Park in Harlem and follows eight of the participants, including current NBA rooks Jerryd Bayless, Michael Beasley, Donte Greene, and Kevin Love, as well as Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, Lance Stephenson, and some white guy who plays for Duke.
FreeDarko was generously given some free downloads of the movie, which we'd like to pass on to you, the readers. Here's the deal: write up something about which high school class from years past you'd most like to have seen in this movie and why, and send it to freedarko[at]gmail.com. Like, I would pick the doomed Class of 2000 and talk about how it'd have been like a Bergman movie. Or something. Be creative.
UPDATE: I forgot that Shoals wanted me to express his gratitude to Powell's, BlazersEdge, and everyone in Portland who came out last night. I hear it was a smashing success.
