While You Were Sleeping

The 2008 Beijing Olympics officially begin today and already complains about the pollution are beginning to arise. The truth is that pollution was also a concern in Los Angeles 88 and in Athens 04. Miraculously when the Olympics began in those two cities, air pollution became a non issue. China can only hope the same holds true for concerns about human rights. Yikes. I am most interested in the 100 meters (the main event in my opinion) and in the Dream Team. Dream Team w/Kobe Bryant is like getting the red sauce on your chicken and rice.

From the World of the Ironic...
Victoria Osteen, the wife of Prosperity Gospel preacher Joel Osteen, is being sued by a flight attendant who alleges that Osteen "threw her against a bathroom door and elbowed her in the left breast." I'm sure that Ms. Osteen looked at her WWJD bracelet first and decided that a milkshake was in order.

Daniell Allen Everett pleaded guilty to child sex abuse after attempting to meet for sex with what he thought was a 14 year old girl. What kind of apparel did Everett wear for his attempted date? A shirt saying "World's Greates Dad." Humor and crime at the same time, splendid idea sir.

You Probably Couldn't Sleep Through This One...
The NFL's all time touchdown leader, Brett Favre, is heading out of Green Bay and to New York err...New Jersey to take over as the Jet's QB. Favre is not interested in living in the glitz and glamor of New York. Instead he will take residence in the boonies of Central Jersey. He's from Mississippi folks.
