Johnson_Bogues_Mourning

In case you didn’t hear the news, the Charlotte Bobcats era is ending and the Charlotte Hornets are returning (Michael Jordan says Bobcats will change name to Charlotte Hornets).  While I don’t really have a favorite NBA team, I sure did love watching LJ, Mourning, and Muggsy back in the day.  In honor of Charlotte’s good decision, here are some great moments of Muggsy Bogues showing that a 5’3″ dude could hang with the big fellas in the NBA.

Plus, you gotta love Larry Johnson and Muggsy’s roles in Space Jam.

Space Jam - Players who lost their talent

Until later friends…

This weekend I decided to buy some songs on iTunes.  Jen wanted to get some country songs, so she did that, and  I wanted to try out some new bands that one of my friends constantly recommends to me.  So,  I got songs from the Mountain Goats, Jamie Barnes, and Brooks Ritter.  My friend had also recommended this group called Band of Horses.  I had never heard any of their music, but I thought it’d be worth a dollar or two.  Upon searching for them in iTunes, I immediately noticed one of the best song titles I have seen in recent history: “Detlef Schrempf“. In a move I can only blame on nostalgia of the better days of the NBA (before Lebron James or a team in New Orleans or Oklahoma City), I bought this song immediately without listening to the preview.

The song is pretty good.  I probably will get a full Band of Horses album in the future, but right now I am happy with my “Detlef Schrempf” song and reminiscing about NBA Jam.  For the record, let it me noted that Detlef Schrempf was a beast of a ballplayer.  My years of playing NBA Jam as Schrempf/Kemp paved the way for Dirk Nowitski to be my favorite current NBA player.

What new bands/songs have you recently found their way onto your playlist?  What other ballplayers (any sport) do you think would make good song titles?
