Reality TV’s knockout combo of talking heads and inanimate 38-year old women has made “The Real Housewives Of ______” an easy joke, but when it’s done right, it can be really, really right. Case in point:”The Real Houseweives Of South Boston”, by way of Buzzfeed.
Somehow it manages to be hilarious, exactly like a real Real Housewives episode (complete with inexplicable dinner party) and a perfect encapsulation of every character I’ve ever seen from a movie set in Boston. Seriously, if one of these women had a gun this could pass for five minutes of The Town. If they aired the show as is on ESPN in Primetime I wouldn’t even know it was a joke.
Moments to look out for: Paul Pierce Jr. (and the pitch-perfect dichotomy of prejudiced white folks who love black people), Boston fans only liking home runs (didn’t need a parody video to tell me that) and the phrase “I f**k athletes. These are my trophies”.

No, it's not a joke. Yes, people in Russia apparently still do the Macarena. Check out the video above of our boy Curly dancing with Andrei Kirilenko and a couple other players, courtesy of The Basketball Jones. The Macarena starts at about 1:07. If you watch the whole thing, you will get to see a plethora of other horrible dance moves.

Since the NBA is in a lockout, the only news coming out about NBA players is them playing in exhibition games. Star Boston Celtic point guard Rajon Rondo recently played in an exhibition game and made a high light real pass.
Rondo throws a no look all alley-oop pass over his head, and if that is not impressive enough he threw it from behind the three-point line. The...
We try to always post our Afternoon Delights promptly at 3 PM each week day, but Celtics Life was able to obtain a full transcript from yesterday's marathon 16 hour labor meeting where it has been reported that little progress was made. We feel that releasing this Celtics Life exclusive a few hours earlier is called for in this special circumstance.
Shaquille O’Neal is never one to shy away from attention. He’s been a rapper, entertainer, basketball player, “undercover” cop and much more.
Is the Big Man now looking to buy, and move, and NBA team to his birthplace?
According to several sources, the soon-to-be Hall of Famer would be interested in purchasing an NBA team and move it to Newark, New Jersey.
The Block Party is busy killing Gaddafi and saving Jerome Harrison, so we’ll be back next week with an interview with ESPNBoston’s Chris Forsberg and a preview of the big Steelers game. Of course, we’ll figure out when the NBA season will start and whether Rajon Rondo will win MVP this year. See you in a week.
Block Party, We Out
