Barry Bonds Quote by Alex Rodriguez

Barry Bonds is brash like that. I can’t compete with him when he turns up the volume on me around the batting cage. One time, he kept needling me, saying he had an H on his forehead for Hall of Famer, that all I had was a P for Potential Hall of Famer, and that the only thing in the world that I had over him was my contract. It was really funny. I love that guy. Best player I’ve ever seen.

Chris Webber = Wimp

This guy is crying over being booed a few times. He makes 10+ million a year to play about 50 basketball games per year. Sad it is. How about trying a bit harder and trying to earn your hometown fans respect back?

Phil Martelli Quote

This is beautiful…

When the Hawks won Thursday, Martelli’s family was in tears, overcome with emotion. If the Hawks win Saturday, Martelli might even cry.

“This is the time of the life for us,” Martelli said. “My family is as invested into this as I am. I’m a basketball coach, but who I am is Phil Martelli, and I give up so much of my family time to do this. To see them so emotional and enjoying this with us — because we may never be here again — touches my heart.”

Such raw feelings will swell from everyone involved … if the Hawks win.

Journalism and War

Journalist killed in Iraq war justified

Reuters said it could not agree that the death of Dana, a prize-winning Palestinian cameraman, was justified and called for the urgent implementation of recommendations in the report to improve the safety of journalists in war zones.

What does the journalist expect. It’s war dude. People are shooting big guns at each other with the intent to destroy one another. Yes, it is tragic…but what do you expect – it’s war. Covering that shit is at your own risk in my opinion. Don’t expect young men that are killing or be killed to recognize you as a 3rd party every time.

Welfare Joke

A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches straight up to the counter and says, “Hi . . . You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I’d really rather have a job”.

The social worker behind the counter says, “Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur/bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter. You’ll have to drive
around in his Mercedes, but he’ll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You’ll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You’ll have a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year”.

The guy says, “You’re bullshitting me!”

The social worker says, “Yeah, well, you started it.”

“You are not Ditka”

Talk to my old friend Brian Moreth this morning. He is coming out to PDX in May to go golfing with Ernie Kent and me….I won it as an auction prize at the 2003 CPY Auction.

We talked of going for a few runs while he is here. I said that I wanna be careful since I am a big guy and running is hard on the knees.

He said, “Keener, you’re not Ditka, relax”

Ditka is the former Bears coach, has 2 fake hips and fake knees…I thought it was funny.

Good Experience Quote

I get this newsletter: Good Experience – the part about Graphic Designers resonated with me.

Create a good customer experience.

Which is to say, many companies base their user experience on the wrong things: office politics, “me-too” reactions to competitors, the “rules” of information architecture tactics, inertia (“we’ve always done it this way”), the ego of the graphic designer (who just wants to work at a print magazine), serving advertiser interests at the expense of the user, and a dozen other excuses for why they just can’t afford to pay attention to the customer.

Emeka Okafor Quote

“I’ve heard people say that success can be your first step toward failure. You can get complacent and you forget what got you to where you are. So I have to remind myself, ‘Keep working. Keep working, Keep working.’”

Dooce Quote

“For nine months I grew a human being inside my belly and then I pushed it out my vagina and now I’m feeding it with my boob. Biology is so fucking weird.”


This reminded me of a quick conversation we had this morning at BNA HQ. Donovan asked me where a money belt or fanny pack goes. I pointed out the following:

A fanny pack is strapped to the outside of your waist.

Money belts go underneath your pant line, above your underwear, just on top of your testicles or vagina/pubic area.

Todd Helton Quote

“We can talk about it all we want. But there comes a time when you just have to get it done and quit talking about it. There’s been a lot of talk here and not enough doing. ”
