Wild World of Wednesday - February 18, 2009



NBA: Shaquille O'Neal's introduction at the NBA All-Star Game over the weekend was certainly wild. One source noted that he was dancing like no one was watching. The West handed it to the East in a 146-119 trouncing. Kobe and Shaq even raised the trophy together.

Here We Go: The NFL Combine is coming and so are the mock drafts. Soon, we will be unable to watch the NFL Network due to the nonstop shoulda, coulda, woulda talk of the upcoming draft.

MLB: With all of the other hubbub going on around baseball most fans don't realize that Spring Training has started. Pitchers and catchers have already reported for many teams. Also, many teams are without people that should have been signed already but we won't get in to that again quite yet...

Twitter Replaces "Big Brother": Lance Armstrong has urged the users of Twitter to help recover his stolen bicycle. I've seen specialty online forums and message boards help people with bad online transactions before and it was only a matter of time before something like this would come about. It is truly amazing how connected the world is...

I missed Shaq's introduction and his dance. Ha!

As for Twitter, that's pretty cool how it can get information out there so quickly. I hope Lance Armstrong got his bike back by now. Either way, I'm sure Twitter has a few more accounts because of it.

I was just talking to a group of people about the whole Twitter thing yesterday.

I'll bet the bonehead that stole Lance's bike will get caught one way or another.
