Well this is going to be fun. My how the dominoes start falling once the King returns. We're less than two hours since LeBron announced he's going back to Cleveland, and the ESPN frontpage is now loaded with the aftershock: Kevin Love says "oh heck yes I'd like Cleveland". Bosh is set to take the Houston offer. Melo might choose the Bulls after all, and the Lakers are out. So much fun. Let's join in that fun. To Hamsterdam!

HAMSTERDAM IS FASCINATED BY GENETICS

I'm knee deep in a couple books about the origins of humans and other hominids. And while there's some fun stuff there (it's been confirmed almost everybody has Neandertal genes as pert of their genome, some populations up to 10%), it's not really as striking a picture for a Hamdam lead-in as the one above. Every great long once in a while, with the history of mixing of races (especially in racially charged slave areas), we get a "black" child born to "white" parents or vice versa. Sandra Laing is the girl in the picture, those are her biological parents in 1960s South Africa where she was expelled from her "white" school because of her completely "black" features. She had a movie made about her (SKIN) that I'm not sure many have seen, but she's the most prominent example of a rare and fascinating phenomenon.

HAMSTERDAM IS MADE OF METAL

Not, not music metal - though the new Mastodon album is now streaming on iTunes - but the tangible metal. Here is a leaked photo of new Shredder, who kind of looks like a spawn of Edward Scissorhands and Gregor Clegane.

HAMSTERDAM VISITS BRAZIL

WORLD CUP ACTION STARTS TODAY WITH BRAZIL V CROATIA @ 3PM GOD'S TIME. Of course you don't think the Brazilian World Cup spending and construction and waste and corruption is something new. But if you did, may I present the Viaduct Petrobas. A thousand feet of finished freeway in the middle of nowhere, with no access other than goat trails to a rickety wooden staircase. It's actually somewhat of a tourist attraction now. Yay Brazil! Via

Having been done with Basketball and Wrestling, I figured BHGP needed one for stadium food. Same rules as always: You have $15 to spend on food at a sporting event. What do you choose to eat?
