It was a slow Wednesday elsewhere, but for the best stuff, go to The Dickinson Press Web site. Two interesting stories I teased in yesterday’s late blog post.

Aarhus wrote an interesting column on the Vikings having the No. 22 pick, which history shows is the perfect place to pick up a high-paid, underachieving position player.

National Sports

Cavs blow shot at NBA home wins record after resting LeBron James. This will no doubt make my brother the 76ers fan laugh. In other NBA news, the regular season is over. Now the exciting part begins. You know, the playoffs, the professional basketball you can actually watch on TV without want to gouge you eyes out. I also still think it’s ridiculous that the Suns would be the No. 5 seed in the East and the West’s No. 8, the Jazz, would be No. 4 out East. But instead the Jazz are going to get slapped around by the Lakers and the Suns could end up stealing the lottery, or more likely, ending up with the No. 14 pick in the draft.

New Yankee Stadium official opens today. In other news, several New York baseball fans file for bankruptcy. On a ‘meh’ note, the Twins close out their four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays tonight. Like I said, meh. It’s early.

Awesome (and sometimes sadly true) News

If anyone would know this, it’s Anderson Cooper.

A Star Tribune reporter wrote a story basically saying that Americans raised in the 80s (me and all my friends) were raised to be a-holes because we’re all told we’re winners and therefore all believe we are all winners even when it’s obvious that most of us are not. I love the anti-self-esteem movement.

Hulkamania could soon be running wild!! This time, it’ll run with a gun or a knife. World of advice to Mr. "Hogan"… DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO O.J. Just don’t. I thought this was common knowledge.

Texas wants to secede from the union. Good job Obama-led Washington. Socialism sure seems like the ticket.

The Somali pirates are going to attack the United States. OK then. Cruise missiles meet pirates. Pirates, meet the afterlife.

Snakes on a Plane! Seriously. Snakes on a plane. I’m not kidding. No word if Sam Jackson was on board or not.

And we think Britney Spears is nuts and Lindsay Lohan needs a talking to. Germany again has us trumped.

Movie News

Am I dreaming!?!?!? Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme are going to be in their first movie together!!! And it’s going to be written by the guy who writes episodes of Friday Night Lights!?!?!?! My life will soon be complete!

The ending of Terminator Salvation could be awesome. It could be terrible. You be the judge.

Family Guy movie is coming in the near future. Hmmm. Not sure what to think of this.

Green Lantern is coming. Finally. … Well, that is if they actually get going on it. And if they actually decide who’s going to play Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.

For your enjoyment, here is the Terminator Salvation trailer.
