Side-stepping through Sports Illustrated, Danity Girl Cats

I was at the Buckhead Barnes & Noble Friday night and saw the April 28th issue of Sports Illustrated.

In addition to Jim Trotter’s piece on the NFL Draft Preview, there are articles on American basketball and Russia, the 1958 NFL Championship game between the [then Baltimore] Colts and the New York Giants, and a sportspirational account of Yunel Escobar and Brayan Pena’s journey to the dugout of the Atlanta Braves.

I was just going to skim the articles, but I decided to buy the magazine. The piece on the Colts vs. Giants game is excerpted from Mark Bowden’s soon-to-be-released book called The Best Game Ever: Giants vs. Colts, 1958, and the Birth of Modern Football.

The article is eight pages long and includes some great pictures. Click here to read it online, but do buy the issue if you feel so inclined to hold it in your hands.

Moreover, click here to read Ian Thomsen’s piece on Russia and basketball; and here for Melissa Segura’s story on Escobar and Pena.

Happy as can be, oui?

And now for a midnight snack.

Guilty pleasures for some, unapologetic mainstays for others. For me? These songs/videos are ludicrously infectious:

“Damaged” by Danity Kane.

“Like Me” by Girlicious.

I Don’t Need a Man” by the Pussycat Dolls.

The first time I heard this song, I thought of this song by Mya called “Free” (it’s in the melody of the first few lines in the verse).
