Reggie Miller, Friedman interview

Oh, I forgot to mention how much the Daily Show rawked last week...two of my favorite people were on: Reggie Miller and Thomas Friedman. Anyway, I found a really great interview with Friedman about his vision of uniting neoconservatives and Greens. Go read it, it's interesting.

Oh, and I think I'm going to throw a party on May 7 this year, in honor of the 10-year anniversary of Reggie Miller scoring 8 points in 8.9 seconds near the end of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Knicks - probably one of my favorite sequences in all of basketball history:
With Knicks leading 105-99, Reggie nails a three with 16.4 seconds left (105-102). Then Reggie – after pushing off Greg Anthony -- steals Anthony Mason’s inbound, steps back behind the stripe and nails another threeball to tie the score 105-105 with 13.3 left... Then comes the play everyone forgets: Sam Mitchell, thinking Indiana still trails by one, intentionally fouls John Starks on the inbound with 13.2 left, but Starks misses both FTA... Mason rebounds the second miss, Ewing fails to put back from close in, Reggie rebounds and is fouled by Mase with 7.5 left. Reggie nails both FTA (107-105 Indiana), then Knicks see last hopes fade as Greg Anthony slips and falls going to the hole as buzzer sounds.
