11 of 13


While the Dude may have prematurely proclaimed a changing of the guard several weeks ago, the Mavericks showed Houston tonight once again that change does not come easily, winning without much of a challenge, 96-86. That makes it 11 Dallas wins in their last 13 tries against the Rockets. With both teams missing an All-Star and their second-leading scorers, everyone's favorite JET lit Houston up for 31.

on the negative side, one of your best players already has been.

blah, blah, blah, sports, sports, sports. you guys have totally missed covering the most important event of the week: opening night of twilight. go blog. topic: the hotness of edward as compared to other incredibly sexy characters: mr. darcy, angel, captain jack sparrow. discuss.

The Ricky Time Guy said...

I have to go with Booth (formerly Angel) in the list you gave. Though for Captain Jack's, one must go with Captain Jack Harkness over Sparrow. (and which Darcy are we talking about the classic and still the best A&E P&P version or the drivel that just came out?, though to be fair I didn't see the drivel who just came out, so I'll have to run to imdb.com to see who played him)

Twilight I hear is a far cry from the books, though I have not read them nor have I seen the movie (or a movie for a while for that matter)

That's it for me.

The Dude said...

what in the world are y'all talking about.

Head Dude said...

Is this DudeSpin?

The Ricky Time Guy said...

Hey a question was asked. I answered. I thought we ought to broaden our appeal to our female readers. And what is the essence, the very core and nature of dudespin, if not to talk about...well... dudes?

I'm sorry she doesn't actually work at her job, but I have taken away my wife's computer. This tangent is an outrage...

Head Dude said...

I guess at the end of the day, I speak for us all when I say, what's Twilight?
Now...back to the Red Raiders' quest for a national title!

Big Daddy said...

TT??? I thought you were a UT (as in Texas not Tennessee which is UT in my neck of the woods) Didn't you spend quality time in Austin?

Head Dude said...

The only school I hate more than Notre Dame is Texas, and I only root against Notre Dame in football -- Texas it's everything.
My mom raised me that way, having gone to SMU (back when they were good at football and rivals). To me, Texas fans are the most obnoxious in the country, though in reality Ohio State is probably worse.
The Dude and I are in agreement on this one. Down with the Horns!

Big Daddy said...

Interesting. So obviously you don't root for SMU, do you then actively root for TT or just root against Texas (are you Aggies fan for example?)

Guns Up!

Big Daddy said...

speaking of the game, I don't know if this is on cable (or some gameplan package the wealthier dudes may have) but I see Azack and no Thad. Is he hurt or was he benched?

Head Dude said...

Thad was hurt -- Asack looks terrible so Thad would be in if healthy. And yet we're only down 7-3 with 10 minutes left.
Re: Tech, I've always had no problem rooting for them since they're the least controversial Texas state school. It's great to see them getting attention on the national stage for the first time in ever.

Head Dude said...

And I'm not an Aggie fan, though I wouldn't mind seeing them do well. SMU is the only one I actively root for.

Big Daddy said...

And the dream dies hard
