There's no knocking Nocioni

Newark -- I never been so happy to be in New Jersey, safely in New Jersey that is.  It was quite a journey here this morning, especially the 40-minute van ride from LaGuardia Airport over here.  Nothing like a half dozen near death experiences weaving through Chinatown to change your perspective on life.

New podcast

Check out my latest podcast with Terry Pluto.

Terry and I discuss Carlos Boozer, why Zydrunas Ilgauskas had never been knocked out before, LeBron James' minutes, Mike Brown's job performance, and how I dislike that every conversation and/or e-mail between Thanksgiving and 11:59 p.m. Jan. 1 requires everyone to exclaim "Happy Holidays!" at some juncture.

The other night at 1:36 a.m. PST, I was dodging broken bottles off a gravel road in a dark corner of Sacramento looking over my shoulder for dark shadowy somethings and perhaps red glowing eyes and/or fangs.  In my pocket was a credit card receipt for $145 with my signature on it and the underbelly of my rental car had fresh scrapes and dents*.

LA Confidential

Los Angeles -- I left my hotel for the Clippers game extra early because I had to take the 101 past the LA Coliseum to get to Staples Center.  I wanted to beat the exiting crowds from the USC-UCLA game.  So I left at the start of the third quarter and still ran into thousands of cars...all UCLA fans leaving early.

And the kernels get stuck in your teeth

Seattle -- Someone once described to me how a long road trip is like eating popcorn.  The smell allures you as it's popping, it's so good when it's hot and fresh and you just enjoy grabbing handful after handful.  But you keep eating it and it gets cold and rubbery and eventually gives you a stomach ache.
