Wednesday's Works


-Anyone need a QB? Apparently Jay Cutler is available. After a rough off-season between the Broncos and Cutler, the team has finally decided to officially put the disgruntled quarterback on the trading block. According to his agent, Cutler has no desire to be the starting quarterback for the Broncos anymore.

-Just how good is LeBron James? I still don't think that we know. This guy is going to take over the Association like no one ever has before. Not even Michael Jordan. James led the Cavs to their 13th straight victory with a 79-73 win over Detroit on Tuesday night. James scored 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Cleveland, who has the best record in the East all but wrapped up for home court advantage throughout the playoffs. Good luck to all the other teams in the league, Lakers included, in beating LeBron in a Game 7 at the Q.

-Like I mentioned yesterday, John Calipari is headed to Kentucky. Coach Cal has accepted an 8-year $31.65 million deal. Calipari will try to lead the Wildcats back to the NCAA tournament which they missed for the first time since 1991.


-Ahhhhh yes. It's still nice to have a BlackBerry. Quickplay is set to offer BlackBerry users the ability to watch full length TV shows on their BlackBerry device. There will be a $7.99 subscription fee per month, and the device will need to be connected via a WiFi connection to download, but this should be something that is very highly downloaded when it is made available, which may be as early as today.

-NKOTB. New Kids on the Block. They're back! The original boy band is set to embark on another tour starting in May. The band reunited last year for a brief tour, and have announced that they will be back on the road for a 34 stop tour in the summer of 2009. Tickets go on sale as early as Monday morning.


-Pending home sales have risen during the month of February. The National Association of Realtors reports that pending sales of homes rose 2.1% in the 2nd month of the year. The number was at a record low coming into the month, so I guess it had nowhere to go but up. Any news is good news right now about the economy though.

-President Obama has stated that world leaders need to agree on some tough new rules to help stimulate the world's economy. Speaking at the G-20 summit the US President stated that they "cannot afford half-measures" as they are trying to address the global financial crisis. The President says he is absolutely confident that the meetings will help lead to the up turn of the economy.
