Anthony Morrow, an undrafted rookie for the Golden State Warriors, shocked the NBA world by busting out with 37 points on 15/20 shooting and pulling down 12 rebounds in his first NBA start. He followed up the next game by pouring in 25 points against Portland on Tuesday.
ESPN's John Hollinger calls Morrow a poor man's Michael Redd but the nickname given to the former Georgia Tech star by his new teammates made my evening. "Little Jack"
SF Gate:Within weeks of coming to the Warriors, Morrow had earned the nickname "Little Jack" because he reminded people of Stephen Jackson, whom he resembles from a distance. (In college, he went by A-Mo.) Jackson welcomed the comparison and decided to quasi-adopt the rookie.
"I always like the underdog," Jackson said. "I root for them in movies. I root for them in sports. ... Players who make it when they're not drafted, I love their attitudes. Last year, I said C.J Watson was my son. Now, he's got a brother."

This old woman must have read about the Mormon Church funding bigotry against the rights of gays.
Warning, Curse Words.
Although I support financial payback towards the Mormon Church, I am still excited for the new season of Big Love.

President-Elect Barack Obama was interviewed on 60 minutes last night. Here is a funny exchange about his mother in law and the new future puppy that our county is obsessed over already.
Obama went on to reinforce his desire for a college football play off and I am positive greedy BCS college presidents chuckled to themselves because they have no intention of ever relinquishing their guaranteed money to fulfill the desires of college football fans. It makes too much sense.
I was unable to locate the video yet but here is the transcript.
I have one last question. As president of the United States, what can you do, or what do you plan to do, about getting a college football playoff for the national championship?
B. OBAMA: This is important. Look -- excuse me for a second.
B. OBAMA: I think any sensible person would say that, if you’ve got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season, and many of them have one loss or two losses, there’s no clear decisive winner, that we should be creating a playoff system.
Eight teams -- that would be three rounds to determine a national champion. It would add three extra weeks to the season. You could trim back on the regular season. I don’t know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this. So, I’m going to throw my weight around a little bit. I think it’s the right thing to do.
