Hoop Dreams w/Sandy and Alex

Worlds Manliest Theme Parks

#1.) Diggerland: This is a chain of construction-themed parks all over England. It features rides made out of construction equipment, such as excavators and dump trucks, and they even offer lessons in operating heavy machinery.

(--Here's their website:

#2.) The Flintstones Bedrock City: This is a "Flintstones" theme park and campground in Custer, South Dakota. It's meant to keep the kids entertained, but there's just something manly about the prehistoric age, don't you think? (???)

(--Check out their website at:

#3.) Texas Hogwallow Mud Park: This is an off-road theme park in Deweyville, Texas. It features miles of trails, racetracks and obstacle courses for ATVs, mud trucks, and even riding lawn mowers. There's also a paintball course, and an exotic animal farm.

(--Their website is:

#4.) Drive a Tank: This is a military-themed park in Kasota, Minnesota. For $499, you can operate a live tank. And for another $499, you can actually crush a car. (!!!) (Asylum)

30 Dirtiest Names is Sports History

Last night . . . while I was preparing for next month's Winter Olympics by downloading naked photos of past Olympic champions . . . I stumbled across a list of the 30 dirtiest names in the history of sports.

--I know, it sounds kind of lame and immature. But some of the names on the list were just too funny . . . including such comedic gems as: (--Careful with these . . .)

--NASCAR driver Dick Trickle

--A former linebacker from Eastern Illinois University named Lucious Pusey

--A former pitcher for the Mariners and Red Sox named Dick Pole

--A former NHL goaltender named Ron Tugnutt

My first car... jb

We got talking first cars because Diddy bought his 16 year old son a $360,000 Maybach. Mine was a 1960 Mercury Comet. Yes, it looked just like this. I was murdering out my car before I knew what that was. I paid $135 for it from my friend Larry's dad. It didn't run when I bought it and had a small tree growing from the back floorboard.

Colt McCoy's letter to Austin

To the City of Austin and Longhorn fans everywhere:

My time at the University of Texas has been filled with countless memorable experiences, from the 45 wins I was fortunate enough to be a part of to the Big 12 championship this season.

You have been there for me through everything and have shown your unwavering support. You have always believed in me, and for that I will be forever grateful.

As much as I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life, I am also saddened by the thought of leaving. I have loved being a student and an athlete at the University of Texas, and every second I wore the Longhorn uniform was special to me. This school and this city hold a special place in my heart that words can't describe, and I intend to remain an active part of this community that has given me so much.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will carry your cheers and support with me always. Regardless of where my next stop may be, I will forever be a Texas Longhorn.

Asian Conan and Leno fight on the streets


here are ten signs you're dating an egomaniac from a site called

--He can't take even the most innocent joke at his expense.

--He begins 75% of his sentences with "I."

--He tells you about every aspect of his day like it's the most fascinating thing you've ever heard.

--He complains about how uncomfortable he is because it's too hot or cold or crowded, when clearly everyone else in the situation is just as uncomfortable.

--He's always talking about how rich and successful he's going to be in the future . . . even though he's an unemployed loser now.

--He always zones out when you're talking to him.

--He refers to himself in the third person.

--He really wants to be famous. He's not sure for what. But something.

--He asks you point blank if he's the best you've ever slept with.

--He updates his Facebook status more than once a day. (Frisky)

American Idol Nonsense

#1.) TMZ claims a, quote-unquote, "'American Idol' spy" told them that the show's producers are trying to land ELTON JOHN to replace SIMON COWELL. (--Elton was a guest judge on Season Three.)

--Well, they may be "trying" . . . but they haven't reached him yet. Elton's rep told "Access Hollywood", quote, "There is no truth to reports that he is in talks to replace Simon on 'Idol'."

#2.) Antonio "Skiibowski" Wheeler . . . who scored a golden ticket on "American Idol" on Wednesday night . . . has been arrested five times in the last five years.

--His offenses were for things like cocaine possession, marijuana possession with intent to distribute, providing a false ID to law enforcement, resisting arrest without violence, and escape during transport. (!!!)


NBC has rolled out their new plans for the 10:00 P.M. hour . . . now that "The Jay Leno Show" is being booted from primetime.

(--As far as we know, the plan is still to have "The Jay Leno Show" run up until NBC begins covering the Winter Olympics on February 12th. Then, by March 1st, they'll be ready to move on with their new programming.)

--Here's what they're doing every night at 10:00 P.M.:

--Monday: "Law & Order"

--Tuesday: "Parenthood" . . . a new drama with former "Gilmore Girls" star LAUREN GRAHAM based on the 1989 STEVE MARTIN movie of the same name.

--Wednesday: "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"

--Thursday: JERRY SEINFELD'S new reality show "The Marriage Ref".

--Friday: "Dateline NBC", which will run from 9:00 to 11:00 P.M.

Old NY Times Article where Jay Leno say's he'd refuse the 12:05 time slot if offered


Just for fun, here's an old "New York Times" article from December of 1992 . . . back when JAY LENO was fighting DAVID LETTERMAN for the "Tonight Show" desk.

--In the article, Jay vows to leave the network if NBC gives "The Tonight Show" to Letterman, and asks him to take the 12:30 A.M. timeslot. (--Here's the link . . .)

Conan's letter

I love this letter Conan wrote. Stick to your guns brother. You should have to pay for NBC's foolish decisions. Here is Conan's letter:

"People of Earth:

In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky. That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.


Self Potato... classic

Jay Leno's monologue from last night

The A-Team Movie Trailer. This actually looks really good!

From Conan's Monologue last night

NBC executive Jeff Gaspin told reporters on Sunday that he was giving Conan O'Brien and crew the weekend to think about the network's offer to bump "The Tonight Show" to 12:05, when, as someone pointed out, it's technically "The Tomorrow Show."

Well, apparently Conan and Co. spent at least some of that time cooking up more jokes. Here is what he told audiences at tonight's (Monday's) taping of "Tonight," followed by Craig Ferguson's not-entirely-sympathetic comments, also delivered tonight.

Good evening. I'm Conan O'Brien, the new host of "Last Call with Carson Daly."

This weekend no one was seriously hurt, but a 6.5 earthquake hit California. The earthquake was so powerful that it knocked Jay Leno's show from 10 o'clock to 11:35.

Everybody now wants to know what my plans are. All I can say is that I plan to continue putting on a great show night after night- while stealing as many office supplies as humanly possible.

On the positive side, I have learned a valuable lesson from all this: never sign a contract that ends with the word "NOT."

NBC announced that they expect to lose $200 million on the Winter Olympics next month. Is it just me or is that story hilarious? [And then later in the monologue....]

As I mentioned, NBC is shaking up its late night lineup yet again. They want to move Jay Leno back to 11:35. And there are a lot of rumors about what I'm going to do.

I've got a lot of options. I thought I'd share some of them with you right now..

I could...

Host the Tonight Show at 12:05

Star in a Lifetime original movie about a woman trapped in an abusive relationship with her network.

Go to ABC and star in a male redhead version of 'Cougartown' called 'Redwolf Village'.

Host a show on B.E.T. called 'White All Night'.

Move to FOX and follow their hit "24" with a new show called "24:05."

Televise my own colonoscopy on the Bravo Channel in a show called 'Project Funway'.

Convince NBC to let me keep this time slot if I can gain 10 pounds of chin.

Andy and I will become a team of wacky morning DJ's called 'Big Red And The Booger'.

Pretend to put my son in a giant foil balloon, then sit back and watch the offers come pouring in!

Perform the show live every night from Zanies Comedy Club at 7:30 and 9:30. (1/2 price drinks if you tell 'em "Coco" sent ya!)

Bring sanity back to NBC by hiring Gary Busey as head of programming.

Leave television altogether and work in a classier business with better people, like hard core porn.

what we do after we get off the air

Eco golfball

The Ecobioball may help the game of golf up its environmental status to a slightly higher level — It’s 100 percent non-toxic, and biodegrades completely in water after 48 hours, simultaneously releasing the fish food that comprises its internal core. The idea was developed by Albus Golf, a company based in Barcelona, Spain, in order to allow people to play golf near marine areas without causing damage to the natural environment.

Austin Cosmic Cowboy Tour

I have been meaning to post this. A lot of you asked about the surprise party I did for my wife, Erin's 40th birthday. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of my friend Greg Strake from Austin Cosmic Cowboy.
Greg does an incredible music tour on the Duck Adventure boats in the evening around Austin. They include a music tour of Austin, great local food and dessert and live local music. Although much of his clientele are tourists, if you ever want a fun evening or to do something over the top for a special occasion, I assure you that Greg and his crew will take care of every minute detail. The tour/trip can be customized much like mine and will be more fun than you ever imagined. Check out the link posted above or watch this vid for more information.

What to do if you're stuck in Newark Airport?

Ever wonder what it looks like when a big singer shows up for Karaoke? What about Taylor swift?


ESPN and Discovery are both developing 3D networks.

--ESPN's will be called ESPN 3D, and it'll launch early this summer. According to "The Hollywood Reporter", the network will broadcast at least 85 live sporting events in its first year . . . beginning with the first FIFA World Cup match on June 11th.

--That's just five months from now, but it's going to take a lot to be able to watch 3D sports in your own living room. In addition to 3D glasses, you will need to have a 3D-ready TV . . . and a special 3D cable box and / or cable package.

(--In other words, this is probably going to be as expensive to have as HD TV was initially. There aren't any details yet on how much the whole set-up would run.)

--Discovery's 3D channel is a little further into the future. It won't premiere until sometime next year, and it hasn't been officially named yet . . . although it'll probably be Discovery 3D or something boring like that.

--Despite the fact that ESPN will have at least a six-month head start, Discovery is still laying claim to having the first 3D network. That's because Discovery's network will be 3D 24 / 7, whereas ESPN 3D will go dark when it isn't airing a live 3D event.
