Remember Terry Tate's Super Bowl commercials (a bully office linebacker) a few years ago? Well, TheShadow sent me a longer version (3.5+ minutes; 16.7 MB). It is pretty funny. Download it to watch it. VideoSift mentions the mirror copy of the original one on YouTube.
An excerpt on Kobe Bryant's trial and the attitude took toll on Phil Jackson when coaching Los Angeles Lakers last season.

Three amusing photographs of the day:
- A ball boy watches tennis star Anna Kournikova of Russia at the World Team Tennis Smash Hits event in Irvine, CA, on Monday Oct. 11, 2004.
- For the turtles: Animal rights activist mimick turtles as crawl on the beach of Kuta in Bali island during a protest calling for the protection of the local ecosystem.
- Comfy shoes: A model presents grass shoes by the ready-to-wear collection.
I saw a funny TV commercial today from Nike and found it online. Go here to go to Nike Gridiron's Web site, skip the annoying introduction, and click on the bottom left area for the commercial ("Watch the commercial"). It is virtual reality + roller coaster + football. You need Macromedia Flash to view the Web site and commercial.
