One time I was going to the airport at lunchtime, and I kept looking for somewhere to stop for grub, but I was in a hurry, so it had to be right there off the highway and convenient or I drove past it, because I did not have time to waste.

The Houston Rockets, as you know, have agreed to pay a tall Turkish man named Omer Asik 25 million over the next three years. Until now, Omer has been playing for the Chicago Bulls, who thought he was so good they stored him on the bench for 22 of a typical game's 36 minutes. In an average game, Omer takes two shots and two free throws, makes one of each, and gets five rebounds. He also blocks a shot.
Eight million bucks a year.
