We're living in an era of information overload. Between the RSS feeds and Twitter, there's not enough time in the day to absorb all the data. I mean, my kid has a t-ball game today, and my wife wants to watch The Cove before she loses me to the NHL

I'm completely addicted to this online basketball game. I played it throughout the Raptors victory this afternoon. If you try it, you'll like it, and you'll keep on trying it. A big part of the allure is that you compete with several hundred other players throughout the world in real-time.

When people ask me something that can be answered by a simple Google search, I usually send them to http://fuckinggoogleit.com/. Unfortunately, that site is a little crude for the delicate amongst us and those you have to be politically correct with. Now we have a hilarious solution that
