Now, I'm not a huge advocate of cargo shorts. That's not to say I don't have a pair or two, and I do certainly appreciate their functionality, but stylisticly, they leave something to be desired. That being said, if Michael Jordan wants to wear a pair whilst golfing, power to him. Apparently the folks at La Croce CC in Miami Beach didn't like the fact that he was breaking dress code and asked him to change. I get it, but to risk a member of Michael Jordan's status not coming back is dumb in my opinions. And to ask him to change when he was 12 holes in? Just crazy. If he was snorting blow off a hooker's ass on the 12th hole (not totally unfathomable, but I digress), I can understand asking him to change. But over some extra pockets on his pants? Give me a break.

I'm not sure if I believe in the SI cover jinx, but as a Notre Dame fan, I'm convincing myself that I don't. My rationale for this is that this wasn't supposed to be Notre Dame's year. The Fighting Irish came into the season unranked (or 24 or 25th, depending on where you look, but still). They have a redshirt freshman quarterback. The lofty expectations weren't there. They have scratched and clawed (and lucked) their way to an 11-0 record, and I really enjoy watching how this team plays. They're a blue collar, hard nosed team that wins on defense and a running game. I'll be watching Saturday night with bated breath, hoping they can take down USC, the preseason #1 team, on the road, in LA. I'm hoping Irish eyes are smiling down on Notre Dame this weekend.

I was talking with a friend yesterday that had never seen Rocky and it occurred to me that many people have "that movie they've never seen". For me, it's Pulp Fiction and I get crap from it from my friends all the time. It's almost to a point where I don't want to see it, just so I can keep that story going. I know people that haven't seen Caddyshack, Anchorman, The Godfather, Airplane, Big Lebowski and classic movies of the like. With so many movies out there, there's always one classic you haven't seen. Have you noticed this at all, or is it just me?
