I mean, it’s not like the Jewish elite of Manhattan are spending their weekends...– An Open Letter To Everyone On JDate What’s Yiddish for “delusional”? (via lizlemon) The Jewish elite of Manhattan actually spend their weekends at the Arthur Treacher’s on 14th Street. Don’t tell anyone. Also, I went out every weekend while I was studying for the bar.
My Independence Day
Hey guys, hope you’re having a good July 4th, that you grill a lot of meat and blow some shit up. Maybe a pool will be involved too. I’m using this opportunity to tell you about myself. Normally I don’t like doing that, but it relates to the holiday. The big news is that I’m leaving my law firm to take a job at a start-up. In a few years I could be at my villa in the...
brevetcaptain asked: Ha--I saw Nash and two other huge WCW guys I didn't recognize at a Taco Mac in Carrollton, Georgia in 2000. He was in terrible shape--busted up after a ppv. And of course he wrestled that week. He's gigantic.
matt-t asked: Kevin Nash at the movie theater in Kennesaw Georgia with a Nitro girl and her kid. all 7'0 of him. This was in '97 during the nWo days
My Celebrity List
On Deadspin today, Drew put together his list of celebrities that he has seen in person, and mentioned that everyone should have a running list. I think the rule for the list is that it has to be somewhere you wouldn’t expect to see them. For example, the fact that I’ve been to Yankees games doesn’t mean I’ve seen Derek Jeter before. Anywhere, here’s my list: ...
The Reading of the Constitution
The GOP keeps blathering on about the Constitution. Saying you support the Constitution is like saying you support the NFL rulebook: it doesn’t really matter what it says, it’s how it’s applied on the field. But, as a refresher course, here is my abridged version of the 27 amendments to the Constitution (again). I: Say whatever the fuck you want. II: You can buy a gun so you...
Predicting the 2012 Hall of Fame Ballot
Too soon? Hardly! You saw a 2011 mock draft right after the 2010 draft. You saw a look forward to 2012 after the 2010 elections. So, why not? Now comes the fun of predicting the 2012 BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot. There’s no set number of names you have to have on the ballot; this year had 33 but in 2009 it had 23, which was an all time low. So let’s assume that they’ll add...

Top Ten Movie Trailer Lines of the Year
There are a lot of top ten lists this time of year, but I still haven’t seen one for movie trailer lines. Why? Trailers are perfect for the Internet age because they’re only two minutes long, and they allow you to be part of the conversation without paying 13 dollars to see a movie in person. Which is why I give you the top ten movie trailer lines of 2010. 10. You lost your balls,...

Political Realignment (cont'd)
The 2006-2010 elections were all about realignment. Voters are less likely than ever to split their tickets, instead aligning with national parties, so the result has been a wipeout of moderate Republicans and conservative Democrats. This can be borne out empirically. There are 435 districts in the House of Representatives. Come 2011, only 12 will be represented by Democrats who hold seats won...
