The Atlanta Hawks have just commemorated their finest player in franchise history Dominique Wilkins with a statue. This is a great honour for Wilkins who is no doubt an icon in Atlanta and one of the 50 finest basketball players ever to lace up a pair of sneakers.
During his time on the court however Wilkins and his Atlanta Hawks mates were stymied by the likes of Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics and Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls.

I know I’ve already posted and referenced the importance of commercials to some during tonight’s Super Bowl but I just can’t stop from posting about the subject yet again. The fine folks at the Bleacher Report have compiled a collection of the best Super Bowl commercials of all-time.
As luck would have it my 2 personal faves made the list. If you have the chance before the start of the game peruse their list and pay particular attention to the Doritos commercial featuring Ali Landry and the McDonalds commercial featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. Solid work advertising at work in both of these ads.
Check out the whole list here. http://bleacherreport.com/super-bowl-commercials/index.html#! Tell them Straight From The Arse sent ya (tip your doorman while you are at it)
Enjoy the game (or commercials whatever the case may be).
