Homeless on $8.5 million a year

So a week ago I was wondering what would be the quote of the year. Thought that George Bush might have it locked up until today. The NBA recently instituted a dress code. Not a bad dress code - no ties or button down shirts - just no hip-hop clothing for team business. Makes sense. Of course the prima donna basketball players have no understanding of reality. Even so - watch out Brownie, the following quote by Denver Nuggets forward Marcus Camby is going to the top of the list. In response to the dress code Camby said: "I don't see it happening unless every NBA player is given a stipend to buy clothes,''
$8.5 million a year doesn't go as far as I thought (I'll let you know after I win the Powerball tonight).

Forget the stipend. The hurting of the pride is what's more at stake. Yeah, right!

You were ahead of me, but I won the powerball.

Hi, Spencer --

Another candidate for quote of the year has surfaced...

Upon dropping a highly-publicized promotion for Bud Pong, (unmistakenly meant to be a drinking game)after mega-protests re underage and overdrinking... the Anheuser-Busch spokesman said,
"promotion guidelines specify the use of water in the cups, not beer."

Part of the Reuters story is below. Gotta love corporate America. -- Randy


LOS ANGELES - Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. Tuesday dropped a popular drinking game promotion, saying under-age drinkers were imbibing beer during the interactive game instead of water as originally intended.

The No. 1 U.S. brewer has been promoting Bud Pong competitions since July, supplying tables, balls and glasses to wholesalers across the United States.

Players on one team try to sink a ball into another team's liquid-filled cups. If successful, the opposing team must drink. Promotion guidelines specify the use of water in the cups, not beer, Anheuser-Busch said.
