The Heat beating the Bulls when Derrick Rose missed a couple of free throws in the final 30 seconds? I don’t want to talk about it. Personal issues.

The Winter X Games? Do I look like a pothead to you? And why aren’t Doritos a more prominent sponsor of that even, anyway?

Tiger Woods finishing in third place in Abu Dhabi? Wake me up when he actually wins, preferably some place where one can actually grow grass naturally.
