Thursday Thumbtacks

Merry Thanksgiving to the citizens of the nation down south. Let’s git’er done.

boshfire.jpg Well, the Toronto Raptors are finally back from their Road Trip of Suck to win one against the Cavs. 25-14-6, Bosh can’t get any more stud-like than that. Canadians should now call this day Raptors’ 3rd Win Day! Huzzah!

“We remembered how to win games again,” Bosh said. “We made the right plays down the stretch, had the right people making shots.”

I hate it when I forget how to win games.

Moving on. Starbury was given opportunity to be free (like a biiird) but early indicators (re: last night’s game) show he’s still a valued resident in the Town-of-Mediocrity, population: 1.

Red Alert! Michael Redd is stealthy (ya that was a cheesy lead-in..)

Vassilis Spanoulis, the Team US killah, got more minutes and played pretty well against the Wiz last night helping out with 10pts, a couple assists and grabbed some boards all in 17 minutes.

Asked if he was more “ready” than when the season began, Spanoulis did not seem to consider it a close call.

“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,” he said. “From the first time I came here, I came here to help the team win. It doesn’t matter if I make 20 points or zero points. I want to help my team win.”

He forgot to add at least seven more “yes”-es. Oh and in that article, Jeff VG calls him “Billy” hah, you think he calls Dikembe “Danny?”

Alright, in random fashion, I’ll ask readers to make a pick on which “George” is awesomer: Stroumboulopoulos of CBC’s the Hour or Stephanopoulos of ABC’s This Week

This imaginary poll (or vote in the comments) can be based on anything, but my obvious suggestion is of course, their last names


  1. rem

    i think i’ll go with Strombo

    he’s come a long way since his days on MM landing with CBC tho kinda tames his avant-gardedness (word?) we will be seeing much more of him for a long time

    whereas Stephanop ambisexual nature makes the hair on my back (don’t really have any but if i did) stand on edge

  2. SG

    I vote for the latter though I can’t believe how old he looks. I had a crush on him when I was in high school.

  3. Definetly the latter. His name is shorter, so I like him more.

  4. oh man, ex-MuchMusic VeeJay Stroumbo is down 1-2 to that political inquisitor!! this is intense yo

  5. i gotta side w/ the canadian obviously. peep the column i wrote about him a little while back:
