What the Hell Happened to Darius Miles? : Written by Darius Miles, edited by Quentin Richardson -- Dudes like me ain’t supposed to talk about this type of stuff. I’m about to tell you some real shit. Things I haven’t told anybody. But first, we gotta go back in time. We gotta go back to when the NBA was still the NBA. Way back when I had the pager with the two-way alert. I’m about to tell you the most Y2K story ever. I’m about to tell you how I almost died at Alonzo Mourning’s crib in the year 2000 on some dumb shit.

SportsFilter: The Thursday Huddle

I never was a huge JJW fan, NoMich, but John Prine is a goddamn national treasure.

And if you haven't already, brace yourself for when you hit Townes Van Zandt.

If you haven't already watched the recent Ken Burns series on Country Music, ep 7 would probably suck you right in. It's all Waylon and Willie and Dolly and George Jones/Tammy Wynette and a lot of Johnny. The whole series was fantastic though (and I'm glad they aired it before the NBA season started).
