Here are a few pictures from the Italy trip. A bunch more are on my facebook page and even more on my flickr. (link coming soon)
My grandfather grew up in this one room house.

This pizza was amazing.

My mother was born in this house.
prosciutto pizza looks better than pacman.
Here's Futura talking about his love of baseball and other Nike releases.
And in case you missed it, Futura's Cathedrals of the Game photo collection of baseball ballparks is on a .406 level of greatness.
On Friday night, Corgishoe and I went to the Clippers game to see Kevin Durant.
Durant is one of my favorite non-Celtics players in the NBA and I saw him play against the Celts last year. He was good then and he's better now. He's maturing and developing...he's only 21 years old. He's going to be one of the top three players in the NBA very soon. If he played in a bigger market, you'd be hearing his name as often as you hear Lebron, Kobe and Wade.
We had great seats.
Look how skinny he is. He's listed at 6-9/230. Just wait until he gets stronger and his body & basketball IQ develop. He might be the youngest player to ever win a scoring title this year. Think about that for a minute. If I could buy Durant stock, I would already own a ton.
This picture pretty much sums up the Clippers.
And in case you've been living under a rock, in the back of a cave, in the middle of nowhere and haven't seen the Hyperize video, here you go. And if you have seen it, watch it again; you know it's that good.
"Don't Criticize (Hyperize)" - Hyperizers: Velvet Hoop (Kevin Durant), Chief Blocka (Andre Iguodala), Ice-O (Rashard Lewis), Fog Raw (Mo Williams) and DJ Quik
I have this habit of leaving multiple browser windows (with multiple tabs in each) open. There's a ton of cool shit on this internet thing. This is a habit that I'm working to break, so as I close some windows, here are some more great links.
So I got a package from The Other Mother in the mail today..
Fancy blue box...
And now the awesomeness:
One of 100.
CORALINE - can you find the Nike sneaker box?
You can't get a pair with the packaging and buttons like mine (unless you want to pay $4,000 on ebay), but if you see the movie and stick around after the credits, you'll have a chance to get a pair of your own.
Tons of dope sneakers for sale (and pictures of dogs)
I love this Kevin Garnett commercial.
