1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Alas, since I'm all the way up in Edmonton, Alberta, I cannot share in the bounty of half-price pizza [​IMG]

    I'm scared that we're gonna make it to the playoffs and Ted is going to keep EG and Wittman for a few more years... We did a good job pruning the roster, but as long as we don't have new blood in the front office things will stay, well, #sowizards...

    ugh... ya I know. The West is so tough.... they should hang in there though (hopefully).

    random side note... I've got a meeting with Steph Curry's agent on Friday... at his house of all places ... should be interesting!

    well it's like when two or more parties get together to discuss points of common interest... it's called a "meeting".

    ok... non-snark. I live in LA and work in entertainment law... it's really not that unusual. I met Laker's GM Mitch Kupchak the other day and a couple weeks ago Rich Cho GM of the Bobcats. I'm friends with the former GM of the Dodgers etc., etc. Not to sound douchey, but it is in fact just part of the business. Nick Young is potentially part of the deal so we'll see... if I get to chill with him I'll let you know! :happy:

    Kevin Durant aka KD aka Durantula aka The Slim Reaper would prefer to go by The Servant.

    Super lame. I want the Durant back that was in danger of reaching the tech limit.

    Get ready for the jokes of being The Servant to King James whenever Durant loses to Lebron.

    My bad if it wasn't obvious I was going for ironic and self-deprecating. I live in LA, and while I don't consider myself an entertainment lawyer per se, I work for an entertainment company.
    You really should be stalking my posts for personal details so you can fully appreciate my obscure lame jokes.

    Sounds good to me. Foodguy doesn't have to pick up the tab, but letting him pick the location worked out well last time (you'd hope so, right?).

    I just read Simmons' "30 Worst Contract" piece an hour ago. Funny.
