This isn’t exactly a column, more a case of thinking out loud. Er, via keyboard. And not actually out loud at all. Let’s just move on.

The other night I was browsing Yahoo! for photos of Sonics center Robert Swift out of sheer curiosity/boredom/masochism. And when I happened upon this one, I finally realized who he looks like. Height aside, he’s a virtual dead-ringer (right down to the ill-advised tattoos) for legendary pro skateboarder Mike Vallely. It’s downright creepy. Isn’t it?
