It’s always seeming to be Wednesday, it seems. Why is that?
This whole Kobe Bryant thing is getting out of control. The Dan Patrick Show has a survey up on their website right now about how much the 6pm SportsCenter tonight should cover the hearing today, which should last all of like five minutes… So far, 359 folks have foted, and it’s 73.2% saying 10% of the show.

You can read the amusing “chat” that the Washington Post had with readers and David Gang, EVP, AOL Products earlier today. Gang discussed the launch of AOL’s version 9.0. I know you’re all so excited – or perhaps holding back the mushroom barley soup. Check it out here.
