Morgan will have to take my word for it, but I know Israel remembers how difficult it was to get Weitao to put away his Blackberry during last year's DudeMania: Dallas. And I think I've already mentioned that it was difficult to pick up any free agents when I played in his fantasy football leagues because he was always on the internet.

First comes a report of the steps the Chinese are taking to cure internet addicts. Fortunately Weitao doesn't have to fear punishments like this since he resides in the good old U.S. of A.
