If I May Talk Sports For a Moment...

Isaiah Thomas is a highly recruited high school point guard from Tacoma (and of course shares a name with The Worst GM Ever). He announced yesterday that he'll go to Washington and so there was an article in today's paper.

But hidden in the article is this:
"He was named Isaiah because his father, James, a Boeing jet final assembly inspector who stands just 5-7, lost a bet during a Lakers-Pistons NBA finals, and the player's mother, Bettina Baltrip, wanted something biblical."

Lost a bet! Dude's life is defined by James's gambling ineptitude! Will this news encourage more nomenclature-based wagering? Nine months from now will we see kids named Zydrunas Ilgauskas Johnson? Or Andres Nocioni McGee?

These are real, genuine, They are verifiable and student records and
transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

With all of the attention that this news has been generating, I wouldn't
be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon
