Sad News

Jason Collier, the 28 year old former Georgia Tech center, who played for the Atlanta Hawks, died of a heart attack in his house. That is really, really sad. 28 people. You can read about it in the hawks blog.

In better Georgia Tech news, as I totally frickin predicted, Jarret Jack is gonna be a star, and prove to be better than Sebastian Telfair. Go check the article at OregonLive. And even better, Nash won't be able to totally take credit, cause he admitted, on draft night, when the trade was offered for that extra pick and Jarret Jack, he was like, uh... sure... Jarret Jack... sure. But little did he know he was drafting a fiesty, cagey, amazing shooter with tenacity and a strong dose of the ACC in him. He totally knows how to win. Go Jarret Jack.

P.S. I returned my rental car this morning in the pouring rain, then had to pay 15 bucks to get a cab back to the hostel. Last night I walked into my room and it was filled with like 10 english kids, all drinking. So I went with them to the sports bar around the corner and got a thorough explanation of Cricket and Rugby while watching Wigan beat Newcastle in the premiership. I love basketball, I love baseball, but Rugby is ridiculous. I mean, these people have lost their minds. And I think this english kid put it best (and it's kind of hilarious when you think about), that cricket is just a more "civilized" form of baseball. I'd argue that it's maybe for sissies. Rugby, on the other hand, is not. Today I will do laundry, buy a new book, prepare for my long trip to Fiji tomorrow.
