Not from the Onion.

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. (AP) — The mayor of a small Southern California city says he will resign after being criticized for sharing an e-mail picture depicting the White House lawn planted with watermelons under the title "No Easter egg hunt this year."

Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose issued a statement Thursday saying he is sorry and will step down as mayor at Monday's City Council meeting.

Grose came under fire for sending the picture to what he called "a small group of friends." One of the recipients, a local businesswoman and city volunteer, publicly scolded the mayor for his actions.

Grose says he accepts that the e-mail was in poor taste and has affected his ability to lead the city. Grose said he didn't mean to offend anyone and claimed he was unaware of the racial stereotype linking black people with eating watermelons.

Located in Orange County, Los Alamitos is a 2 1/4-square-mile city of around 12,000 people.

Happy Wooooooooo!!!! Birthday

Today, the greatest professional wrestler of all-time, 16 times World Champion "Nature Boy" Ric Flair celebrates his 60th birthday. While he's been retired almost a year now, he has certainly not been forgotten. Naitch made a special appearance on RAW a couple of weeks ago to knock some sense into Y2J and he will be inducting his friend Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania XXV.

Here's to another 60 years of stylin', profilin', limousine ridin', and jet flyin'. For those people who said he would never make it, for whatever reason, remember, "diamonds are forever, and so is Ric Flair!" Woooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flair goes wild in Biloxi...

Custom made from head to toe in Baltimore...

Get ready Chicago, the Horsemen are coming...

Weekend Recap

1. Rick's still got it.

2. I had a good time in Buckhead- should have gone up there sooner but I plan on making a return trip soon.

3. Kudos to Jim Calhoun for telling that guy to shut up. Too bad his team still sucks.

4. Knowshown ran a bad 40 at the Combine but so did Larry Fitzgerald.

5. Elliot Williams is badass. Good win for Duke tonight.

6. Speaking of Duke, JJ Redick made a big three pointer in the final seconds of a game last week to send the game to OT. I'll admit it: that's probably more of an impact than I ever thought he'd have in the NBA.

7. That guy who played the Joker won the Oscar. Good. The movie still sucked.

8. I guess the Grand Marshall's thing tonight was fun. Here are a few of Holland's texts: "Ur cousin is trying funny th4ogs with cecili ruso" "that guy plowe knows wand is big"

9. Be sure to check out OITO- good video of JJH4. He didn't seem too thrilled, though.

10. Who's ready for Athens this weekend? Plowe and I got a room at that Days Inn by White Columns. We'll see if Rick's guarantee holds up.

Choice Cuts

From the online broadcast of yet another heartbreaking postseason loss for the Cadets. A really good season for BC (and its radio team), and next year should be a great one.

I think it's pretty easy to determine who said what:

“For those of you not familiar with the state, Nahunta is located between Brunswick and Waycross.”

“Coach Cannon decked out in khaki pants, the usual loafers and a gray sweater. Looking sharp, along with the rest of the coaching staff.”

“He's telling (Cannon) not to flail his arms. He hasn't refereed in the Savannah area too much.”

“This trivia question brought to you by Giorgio's Subs on Mall Boulevard. All kinds of subs. Stop in there sometime and get you a nice sub.”

“Kind of a foggy mystique to the gymnasium. Bad lighting.”

“Joey almost gets de...headed. I don't know if we can say that, be he almost got 'de-headed.'”

“As we reach 10 o'clock here on the East Coast, seven for those listening on the West Coast. Those people in the central time zone, they're a few hours behind us.”

Something about the Braves in Chavez Ravine going to bed on the radio what a monumental win this could be for the Cadets but it's early.

“They walk. No call. They walk again. No call. They're in the lane. No call.”

“The official scorekeeper is way, way out of his league right now.”

Addendum: "If you're a BC supporter or alumni, there are no bad days." - JJH4

Region 2-AA Quarterfinals

APPLING CO. PIRATES (19-7; 10-7)

Thursday- Approx. 8:34- Nahunta, GA- BCSN

Whats at stake: Winner clinches a birth in the state playoffs and advances to play Long Co. in the region semi-finals. Loser is eliminated from the playoffs.

Previous Meetings:
Jan. 13: Appling 51-49 (OT)
Feb. 7: BC 47-43

Last time out:
Appling: Defeated Pierce Co. 81-57 in the 1st Round of the Region Tournament.
BC: Defeated Windsor Forest 68-64 in the regular season finale.

Projected Starting Lineups:

1 Wendel Williams (SR- 5'11- two time 2-AA Player of the Year)
23 Arthur Williams (JR- 6'3- teams 2nd leading scorer)
24 Justin Robinson (SR- 6'0)
34 Adrian Spellman (SR- 6'8)
44 Chris Paulk (SR- 6'8)

20 Joey Friess (JR- 5'10- leads team in APG)
24 Arik Brown (SO- 5'11)
30 Dennis Green (SR- 6'0)
34 Jabri Bryan (JR- 6'1- 18 ppg and 11 rpg)
44 Alex Hunt (JR- 6'3) OR 52 Daniel Coursey (JR- 6'9)

* Both teams are pretty evenly matched as their records, previous meetings, and the region standings indicate. Appling did not lose a non-region game while BC went 4-1 against fellow Savannah schools.

Appling has a height advantage down low but everything runs through W. Williams. The best shooter in the region, Williams also has the ablity to take it to the basket and finish. A. Williams is a very capable scorer as well and led the Pirates in scoring the last time these two teams met. Appling is looking to return to the State Playoffs a year after making the Sweet 16 and finishing 26-3.

Jabri Bryan leads the Cadets in scoring and rebounding. Bryan's ppg have decreased in the past month due in part to other Cadets' ppg increasing. Dennis Green led the Cadets with 15 points in the win over Windsor and has consistently been in double digits the last couple of weeks. Joey Friess has started every game at PG and has been the defensive leader. The late season emergence of Soph. Timmy Gaveau has given the Cadets a boost at the Guard position. BC is looking to qualify for the State Playoffs for the 1st time since 1992.

Monday Thoughts

1: February is a shitty month.

2: Monday Night Raw has been disappointing lately. Nevermind, HotRod just cut off Y2J- love the bagpipes and the skirt.

3: Lot of countdows going on right now- St. Patrick's Day, Buckhead trip, Athens trip, Tybee Island St. Patrick's Day, Lowe/Bell Yard Sale, Vegas= so excited.

4: Big win for Georgia's basketball team saturday vs Florida. Loved the Corey Butler quote.

5: Glad Shane is back in the game. Prediction: Murray takes J to Will's wedding.

6: P Bunger lost his phone in Philly!! I've never known him to get drunk or out of control so I'm not sure what could have happened.

7: I heard Holland ate a lot of roast beef at McCall's wedding: dat a boy JJ.

8: Go Cadets- let's win a region tourney game then make the state playoffs. They should be resting and getting their legs under them now in order to make a good run- yeah right.

9: BMBS is on a roll- love the top 5's. OITO is a testimony to what happens when you work hard each day.

10: A lot of people in the Boro have it out for UGA and Athens in general. I will get to the bottom of this in the next 17 months.

~ Funny video from the onion. This website is awesome. Visit it daily.

~ I have been accused of having a man-crush on Michael Cera. My rebuttal: there's gayer people to have man-crushes on. Everything he touches turns to gold. Arrested Development escpecially (best show ever!!!). These gems are 8 to 12 minute videos of an internet TV show that he and his friend Clark. Even if you think these will be dumb, at least watch the Intro to the show. Also start with episode 1, the website automatically starts up the final episode.

Best Blog EVER

I encourage you to check out fellow Horseman Jeff Owens blog at:

He's already got a question and answer session with another Horseman Mr. Rod Battle. The blog is actually very impressive and provides a unique player's perspective, which I'm sure is a lot different from us fans. I can't wait for his "Fire CWM" posts. Enjoy!

My Vegas Itinerary


Six weeks from today, we will arrive in Las Vegas, Nevada. I can't wait. Since I think about it pretty much every day, I figured I'd go ahead and map out a (my) tentative itinerary for the trip.

Wednesday Night:
I think we arrive around ten. After checking in, I'll probably play a quick 50 on the blackjack table then go get a burger or something before I come back to start my serious drinking/gambling in the Caesar's/Bellagio/Harrah's/Flamingo area.

Bellagio Buffet for my midday meal. Then maybe get drunk at the pool or go see a few sites.
That night I want to go downtown/Fremont St.: eat somewhere down there, see the lightshow, gamble a little, then come back to the strip and hit up Planet Hollywood and MGM Grand.

Wake up late and maybe head down to the Palazzo and eat at the deli in the Mirage on the way back. Maybe go ride a rollercoaster or two at New York and visit the Paris.
Go to a good dinner somewhere on the strip that night then stay in the Bellagio/Caesar's/Harrah's/Flamingo area until the early morning.

Try and wake up early and go to the Harrah's breakfast buffet. Play one 50 dollar hand on blackjack and put 25 bucks on 32 one time as I walk out of the Flamingo to head back to the airport.

I know we'll all do our own thing, but that's just my general idea of where I'll be and when. Any ideas/suggestions?

Worst Idea Ever

Thank God Mark Bradley took the time to rip this apart so I didn't have to.

Though it's less about Bob Knight being an ass or a big baby a lot of the time than it is the fact that no elite recruit in his right mind would ever want to play for him. It would've been cool to see what he could have done with Felton's first couple of teams, but Georgia is much better than this now.

But we'll always have the golf video, General:

Friday Night Lights/Lasers

Monday is a great day to check out Facebook. You get to see scandalous pictures of what fine little chickenheads did over the weekend. You can expect to find a video of Jack's most recent karaoke adventure. You can count on seeing Murray with a big girl, a cougar, or in a comprimising situation.

Today, I got on to find that Big John Wright had invited me to join his group, "Laser-tag, anyone?". I know some of yall don't have Facebook or some of yall aren't yet friends with JW on Facebook. Here are the details:

"I try to play laser-tag on a weekly basis---Fridays at around 6:30 P.M. at Star Castle Family Entertainment Center. If anyone is interested feel free to join me. I'm the guy in solid black.

Now I know many if not most who read this will probably presume laser-tag is a kiddie game. can be, but it can also be more. I'm not going to try to convince everyone how great it can be---it will explain itself if you play it---I just want to get people to go. So if you're interested, then join this group and invite your friends. If you're not interested, join anyway and invite your friends because they may be interested. Just because you're in this group doesn't mean you have to come. All I want to do is reach out to as many people as I can who may be interested.

If you join I'll send an invite whenever I'm planning to go. If you get tired of getting the invite then---after you've invited all your friends to join this group---opt out.

Things to know:
1. When the staff person asks if you've played before say yes...otherwise you have to watch an eye-gouging instructional video. Everything you need to know is below.

2. Hold both buttons on the gun at all times, so that when you pull the trigger it fires. The gun is full-auto, so you can just hold down the trigger. Aim for the chest, back, or shoulders, but not the eyes.

3. You have 20 lives and 500 shots. If you are shot twenty times or you squeeze off 500 shots you have to go to the charging station where you start out at the beginning of the game. Do not go to the other team's charging station or it will kill you.

4. If you defeat an opposing player you can keep shooting them and still get points, but that means they can do the same to you, so if suddenly you hear a clicking noise when you try to fire—get back to the charging station.

5. There is a base in each corner of the arena with a light that can be shot. Each team has two bases to defend. You get more points for shooting an opposing base than an opposing player. Feel free to unload 500.

6. When you want to charge up don’t try to shoot the blinking light in the charging station or get real close to it, you can just slowly walk by it and it will recharge you.

7. The arena is lit by black light. If you want to blend in a bit, avoid wearing white and jean material. Even black jeans will illuminate in black light.

I think that should cover it. Obviously you have to be here in Savannah in order to play here, but I decided not to limit who can see this group to Savannah, GA because hey if you want to fly from Indochina once a week to play laser-tag here then more power to you!"

10-6, John. Love you. Got to go.
