Mike Singletary won’t talk about the dad-gum yahoo commercial. Epic!

video link (from midwestsportsfans (h/t Deadspin))

- Let’s talk about your offensive line and trying to run the ball.

- That’s a great conversation. There you go.

That’s Bill Cosby! Remember Cliff saying “There you go” to Theo? Maybe some other character?

The scene takes place on the planet Tatooine before C-3PO and R2-D2 head to Jabba the Hutt’s palace. Darker in tone, it finds newly minted Jedi knight Luke Skywalker building his new light saber while Darth Vader reaches out across the universe urging his son to join the Dark Side.

Cable, NIC? Working on it…

UPDATE: Probably a bad ethernet cable was the culprit. Hopefully it doesn’t come back.

LeBron James and Chris Bosh to the Bulls “a done deal”?

Jonathan Abrams @ NYT:

The LeBron James sweepstakes will kick off in Ohio on his home turf Thursday as five teams — the Chicago Bulls, the Miami Heat, the Knicks, the Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers — travel there in an attempt to woo James away from the Cleveland Cavaliers, an executive of one of the teams in the hunt said Saturday.

But the meetings might not be much more than a formality. The executive, who did not want to be identified discussing a player who is not yet a free agent, said he had gathered from discussions with his fellow N.B.A. executives that James was strongly leaning toward joining the Bulls in tandem with another free agent, Chris Bosh of the Toronto Raptors.

“I think it’s a done deal,” the executive said.

A done deal? That’s freakin’ awesome!

Adrian Wojnarowski @ Yahoo:

To listen to World Wide Wes, LeBron will never look back on Cleveland. “He’s up out of there,” is the way he tells it to people, but LeBron’s Akron crew has to tsk-tsk such public talk because they all live in Northeast Ohio, and maybe always will. “We’re going to Chicago,” William Wesley tells people, “and Chris Bosh is coming, too.”

Holy crap!

Fred Mitchell & David Kaplan:

Tom Thibodeau is represented by Leon Rose, who also is the agent for LeBron James. Could something be brewing to pair the two together in Chicago? Several NBA types we spoke to believe that is a strong possibility.

Meanwhile, William “Worldwide Wes” Wesley, James’ powerful confidante, tells his NBA friends that the free agent is leaning hard towards signing with the Bulls.

John Fogerty’s ‘Centerfield’ will enter baseball’s Hall of Fame

CBS:

John Fogerty’s “Centerfield” has logged more time in baseball stadiums than most Hall of Famers. Now, the classic song is about to get its due in Cooperstown.

The Baseball Hall of Fame said that “Centerfield” will be honored at this summer’s induction ceremonies, the first time a musician or a song has been celebrated as a part of the festivities.

“As a little boy I loved baseball. I dreamed about being a major league player. Of course it didn’t work out that way. But to be associated at all, in any way, is a wonderful honor,” he said.

Already in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Fogerty will perform the song at the sport’s shrine on July 25.

Take it away John:
