HAMSTERDAM DOESN'T NEED A NEW SHIRT

(h/t to commenter Dip-Shit). Does that outfit from this schoolteacher's 2012 yearbook photo look like it could be straight out of the 70s? Well, it is. And he can prove it. Because he has worn the exact same outfit for every shcool picture day for FORTY YEARS. The link below has all 40 pictures (unfortunately in slideshow format, but there's also a video). It's worth your time just to be amazed at the dedication and humor. Or if not intentional humor, the pure awesomeness. LINK

Devyn Marble Scouting Report (for those who want something more substantial)

6

I just realized that he'd be a perfect fit for the Bulls in the 2nd round. He can handle the ball decently, shoot decently, create for others decently, defend decently. An all-around PG/SG backup. As a 2nd rounder. Will probably never be great, but in my mind, he's smart enough and works hard enough and has shown consistent improvement enough that he MIGHT be a legitimate starter 5 years down the road for a solid 4-6 years. With that said, Marble is one of the younger seniors in this draft, not turning 22 until September, and there is a very high demand for players who can shoot both from a standstill and coming off of a screen, use their length defensively, and make sound decisions with the ball.

McDonalds unveiled their new mascot yesterday, and it's nearly as terrifying as Pierre the Pelican used to be. Watching major corporations fail at marketing sure is becoming the standard. (Looking at you, DTV wireless ads)

HAMSTERDAM LAMENTS THE END OF A GOOD THING

739

Like many of you, I have had DirecTV as my "cable" provider for the past several years. And as seems to be the general consensus, I've been pretty dang happy with their service. It's a bit pricey after the intro rate, like all cable carriers, but I have always had stellar service from this company that just seems to be one of the few that really cares about its customers instead of quarterly sales number calls (hi Zappos!) Well, as you may have heard, DirecTV is going to be acquired by AT&T for ~$50B, or in reality closer to ~$65B if you include the debt they're assuming. And it's not looking likely to be stopped by anti-trust laws. So I assume things will be as per usual for a while, but you'll see customer un-friendly tactics start to creep in over time. It's the way these things go, especially when assumed by that most evil of company categories: consumer electronic media delivery.
