Time to exit the cave

I've just been handed a telegram from the home office informing me that yesterday, the Pirates made 2010 Roy Oswalt look like 2006 Roy Oswalt. This comes as a bit an earthshaker, as it all but directly implies that there are things going on in the world around us that have nothing to do with LeBron James.

I'm gonna go check out where these crazy shadows on the wall are coming from. Care to join me?

The Yankees are close the acquiring Cliff Lee from the Mariners. Isn't baseball grand?

The powers that be are finally getting ready to blow up the Cubs, and only about a month too late.

BP has begun using Kevin Costner's oil spill cleanup machine in the Gulf. I think this is about as close to a feel-good story as we're going to get today.

The New York Times has some great travel advice for anyone who might be spending 36 hours in Copenhagen, Denmark. You know, they say Copenhagen is the new Antwerp.

Jim Gray really dropped the ball last night in failing to ask LeBron, "Is your mother a prostitute?"

Steve Carrel is leaving "The Office."

Damn you, Matt. How am I supposed to follow the classic "here's some random sports stuff, here's me with Salman Rushdie, here's a song I like" post? It can't be done. I quit for the weekend.

Somehow, this is LeBron's fault.

The game is out there, and you either play or get played.

The game is the game.

You can not lose if you do not play.

This game is rigged, yo.

It's all in the game, yo. All in the game.
