I was entertaining house-guests when it happened. And by 'entertaining' I mean following the Mavs/Thunder game on my phone.

You probably read that headline and said "Whatchu talkin' 'bout Alex?" At least I'd like to think you people aren't all dead inside and would pay the late Gary Coleman a tribute.  How on earth are LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki alike? After all, one was in the spotlight when he ...

Like many of you, I was going about my daily life yesterday when I received a text message. It told me that Dirk Nowitzki, my favorite player, my not-so-secret man crush, and my close personal friend (you'll read about that later), was opting out of his deal.  Five minutes later, I ...
