Via DNAInfo.com, here’s more on the transplanted Brooklyn Nets of the NBA:

The Nets officially moved to New York City Monday, and began selling merchandise emblazoned with a new black and white logo designed by the Brooklyn rapper. The logo features a shield shape that includes “Nets” in thin lettering above a basketball with a “B” in it.
“The Brooklyn Nets logos are another step we’ve made to usher the organization into a new era,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “The boldness of the designs demonstrate the confidence we have in our new direction.”
… The team’s website also went black and white, and incorporated the iconic shape of the Brooklyn Bridge and the phrase “Hello Brooklyn,” which comes from the Beastie Boys’ “B-Boys Bouillabaisse” off the Paul’s Boutique album.


Not a huge fan, question mark?

Now most of you don’t play basketball, so what does this have to do with you, assuming you’re not a Knicks fan enjoying your team win instead of lose? Well most of you are sexually active, and if you’re not, you probably would like to be. But if your sex life isn’t all that hot, then there is a lot to learn from the basketball court that’s applicable to your bedroom, living room, or kitchen floor!

Good morning! Dr. Ruth wrote about what basketball and Jeremy Lin can teach us about sex! Oh, the Linsanity!

I think hammocking will be an Olympic sport in 2016. Slap some skis on it, and it'll be ready for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

It should be like the cross country skiing/archery biathlon, except it’s rowing and napping.

Nancy Kerrigan Clubbed On The Knee Today In 1994

What is the sound of one dream breaking? For Dan Kerrigan, a plain-spoken, loving father, it was the agonizing screams of his daughter Nancy echoing down the hallway of Detroit’s Cobo Hall. Leaving the side of his legally blind wife, Brenda, he pushed through bewildered spectators, scooped Nancy up in his powerful welder’s arms and headed for help. For one still-anonymous predator, it was the sound of glass splintering. Dressed in a black hat and leather jacket, he snuck up behind America’s foremost female figure skater, swung a metal rod at her elegant, powerful right leg, then ran. Facing locked doors, he smashed through the plexiglass that blocked his desperate retreat and fled into the afternoon. For Nancy Kerrigan, it was the sound of her own voice. Racked with fear and pain, her beauty distorted as she watched a life’s work perhaps ruined in a flash of brutality, she heard herself sob, “Why me? Why me?”

To report such career-ending allegations is a huge and risky step; a news organization has to be sure it’s got a strong case.
Long before the university’s assistant basketball coach was fired over sexual-abuse allegations, ESPN and a local paper had a damning tape—and sat on it. Howard Kurtz debates whether that was the right call.

Apparently the students and residents of Penn State are still huge fans of Joe Paterno, despite his negligence in reporting the alleged sexual abuse of young boys.
