I have been working on two very frustrating projects for most of the day. One of them is still a huge trainwreck. The other one is going to shut down the internet tomorrow. I can’t say what it is until then, but you’ll know it when you see it. It is one of the few things in life that do not disappoint.

Player of the D.A.Y. is Memo Okur for his 31 and 11 against the Spurs. I know that Kevin Durant had a 37-23 night against Bobby Knight, but I do not want to step on Ben Collins and his college toes. One thing I will say about Durant is that last year I was sent to this promotional thing for the Jordan Classic where I hung out in a Boost Mobile barbershop on wheels with the vague instructions to cover whatever it was. Durant was one of several players that got free haircuts that day. My eventual idea was to interview someone from T-Mobile and then create this short video and throw on a T.I. instrumental for some reason. Since this D.A.Y. hasn’t been nearly as fun as yesterday’s, hey here’s a video of an explosive college superstar! Getting a haircut, sitting in a corner, and wearing a bucket hat!
