In case you missed it, a guy at Friday's Miami Heat game made a hook shot from half court to win $75,000. Then as soon as he drained it, LEBRON JAMES ran out to give him a hug, and pretty much ended up TACKLING him!
As part of the contest, another 75 grand goes to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Here's the kicker... $22K goes to taxes! I guess $53K is better than $0K. And hey, he got a sweet tackle hug by King James too... was that worth the $22K? I think not.
After the game the owner of the Heat Tweeted this picture out. He was out late partying it up and STILL carrying around the basketball!
Offspring's lead singer Dexter Holland and Dead Sara frontwoman Emily Armstronghave posted a video online that shows them performing the Offspring song "Gone Away" together at an October 2012 show in Los Angeles and also recording a new studio version of the track. Dexter said, "When we started building our own set list, I realized the stripped-down version of 'Gone Away,' which we've been doing for a few years, would fit Emily's voice really well. It turned out to be a special moment in the show each night." The Offspring is headed to Australia next month, while Dead Sara will open for Muse on their upcoming North American trek. Both bands were in Charlotte last year. Offspring headlined the End of Summer Weenie Roast and Dead Sara played the night before at the "Teenie Weenie."
Conan O'Brian has a new web series called "Jibber Jabber." He does really long for interviews. Reminds me a little of Inside The Actor's Studio. In this episode he hangs with Jack White... for a LONG time. Did you know Jack White was an upholsterer? It's weird and very interesting all at the same time. I don't know what I think of Jibber Jabber yet and I could only take this video in short bursts. I think that has a lot to do with the fact that I have a short attention span anyway. If you've got some time to kill... you know, at work... check this out!
I'm sentimental right now because I have my first baby due in March. I have been reflecting a lot on my life leading up to this moment of becoming a dad. Particularly the last 5 years of my life... I met the love of my life, married her, bought a house together and now I'm getting ready to be a dad. As I look back at my life I thought I had a pretty memorable proposal to my wife. It turns out after watching this I am feeling like mine was a little lazy. Ok, a LOT lazy in comparrison to this guys.
If you're thinking about popping the question... take notes.
I can't believe how young they look! This video was from a public access TV show the band did in their early years called "Rockstock." Dexter, the lead singer, reminds me of Kenneth from 30 Rock in this video. Check it out!
