10 – You coughed into your sleeve, but only after using your shirt to wipe a cream pie out of a dead hooker lying in the street. 9 – You’re a hip-hop kid who insists on wearing his facemask backward and to the side. 8 – You forgot to get your swine flu shot. 7 – The Big Bad Wolf keeps knocking on your door. 6 –You cornholed Porky at a fraternity pig roast last weekend.

There is no more ubiquitous cliche in professional sports than the post-game shout-out to God. Our winners always seem to walk with Jesus. Which is why the most astonishing moment of the Celtics devastating OT victory over the Bulls in Game 5 may have come after Rajon Rondo knocked Brad Miller's toof out. Both teams had left the floor, and in the Celtics locker room, Glen "Big Baby" Davis had a bouquet of microphones up in his grill.

Not only have the stupid mud-bathing brats ruined my perfect beach-front vacation with my hubby who just got back from Iraq (and who planned a vowal renewal on the beach since he was deployed during our one-year-anniversary), but these silly coughing swines are killing Mexicans and getting little kids sick across the nation (not to mention freaking the world out in the process).

You may have heard of news reports circulating on people contracting the Swine Flu. People are naturally freaking out about the virus because not only has it already reached our borders, but it's a disease that could spread like wildfire if we're not careful -- and with little remedy.
But how worried should you be? Decide for yourself with some basic facts here.
Ah, sweet summer. Everyone knows this is prime gaming season, since it's too hot to go outside, not to mention the tendency for responsibilities to fall by the wayside as the number of Otter Pops consumed steadily increases. It's a perfect time to catch up on last year's big releases as they begin to go on sale, or even rediscover the games of our childhoods for a hop and a skip down nostalgia lane.
Rumors have been circulating recently of a movie based on the masterfully crafted PS2 classic, but it appears the project is closer to completion than anyone initially thought. And guess what? It isn't being made by Sony after all- it's an indie flick, and it looks even better than I ever thought it would! Check out the brand new trailer, but watch out for spoilers!

1 – My first surprise down at the Volvo Ocean Race village was that people are allowed to walk around with cocktails. Even though this should be no big deal – and I’ve seen similar arrangements in dozens of other cities – ours is a happy hour-free hub where it’s only legal to get massaged until 10pm – so I have to give Boston props for loosening up.

Alien “abduction” artifacts on display in NH: It’s a probing exhibit
Remember the bombshell that launched from Boston’s shores last month (before we put preppy murder back on the map)? In case you forgot, here’s a recap of some findings from the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) teen study that rocked the planet, and over-stimulated more right wing pundits than [I’ll refrain from demoralizing Ann Coulter under the circumstances, but you know what I’m getting at].
Full disclosure here: In case you haven't noticed, Puma has bought giant ads in the Phoenix for the past two weeks. Furthermore, I own several pairs of Pumas, and have romanced South Floridian women three times my age, who I believe they’re calling “pumas” these days. With that out of the way, I can commence with ethically informing you that I expect to be a drooling mess aboard Puma City for the next three weeks.
