Welcome to the third installment of my weekly power rankings. Here's hoping they suck less than the crap Phil Rogers put out every week.
1. Twitter. It's official, everyone is doing it. Whether it is someone living vicariously through Tony LaRussa ... or someone who is real, like SIU men's basketball coach Chris Lowery, Twitter's newest phenom ... tweeting is for real! Jump on the bandwagon while there is still room.
2. Rap Music. Big week in rap music as Lil' Wayne dropped fire with that new Kobe Bryant song and Jay-Z killed autotune with his new track for Blueprint 3. Then there was Kobe's accuser reliving "the night" while on stage at a bar. All in all, here is the proof it was a big week.
3. Mocking. Mocking is cool when it comes to fake TLRs, but it is not cool when it means B.J. Mullens is a possibility for the Bulls. I would rather that not happen!
4. Winning. Randy Johnson picked up his 300th. Carlos Zambrano picked up his 100th. Randy Wells still awaits his first.
5. Songs of the Season. Check out my newest venture as I provide a soundtrack to your life.
6. Movies. "The Hangover" lived up to the hype. I can't wait 'til I see "I Know What You Did Last Semester" ... er ... "Sorority Row."
7. J.J. Redick. Who needs a Kobe/LeBron finals when J.J. Redick and Adam Morrison, two of college's greatest players of recent lore, have taken their rivalry to the next level?
8. Overtime. How pissed off is Sam Zell after all these extra inning games the Cubs played this week? He's probably withholding overtime pay.
9. Retirements. Who's calling it quits first: Sammy Sosa or Carlos Zambrano? Better question, which is more Hall of Fame worthy?
10. Rejected Mascot Names. If anything, the basketball team in Memphis should be called the Bandits. The mascot should be a crackhead with a cinder block in one hand and a handful of change in the other. For more, check out this article in the Wall Street Journal.
