Breakfast With the Hysterics

This morning I realized that your faithful editors had forgotten to mention the merciful end of the 3 month extravaganza that is the NBA and NHL playoffs. I understand the need for off days, but these two playoffs seem to go on forever. Seriously when did the Celtics play the Bulls? Wasn't it the middle of April? First the NBA. What a goddamn borefest. Stan Van Gundy couldn't get his own team out of their own way, and Dwight Howard vanished under the threat of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, while Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkeyglue matched each other brick for brick. In Game 5 it seemed like the only Magic player that remember how to shoot a three was JJ Reddick. Not only were most games never very close, but if you stayed to listen you got to experience a virtual Kobe Bryant explosion by every analyst on TV. Yes I get it, the acquitted rapist is as good as Jordan and better than Lebron, just look at the f'n smug look on his face even he knows it, you don't need to tell us over and over again.

The NHL playoffs on the other hand, was, well awesome. The Detroit-Pittsburgh series was everything you could have hoped for. You had close games, the series went seven, and the favorite lost on one goal that almost went in with less than a minute left in the game. The NHL needed a series like this, one that let their wunderkind Sydney Crosby ascend to the throne of Superstar, and give the public what they wanted: hard hitting, good hockey. Then again, I know little about the sport and I'm sure Raquel or SCOC will tell me that I'm an idiot. Oh and by the way I saw Phil Kessel at a casino this weekend, so that happened.

In Mass Hysteria's neverending search to bring you random stuff, we present you a video from the British TV Show The Mighty Boosh. In this video (NSFW), you meet the character "Old Gregg", and..well just let the video speak for itself. Have a great day everyone.
