Offseason Survival Guide, Day 1

Oh, God. It's actually happened. We have to make it 4+ months till next season. 4 months with nothing but next week's draft, summer league, and the Olympics to get us through. It's going to be okay, though. Do you hear me? We're going to get through this, together. So to help you out, each day from now till the start of the season, we're going to give you something to do that translates and reminds you of the game.

Today's thing to do to kill time before the 2008-2009 NBA Season:

Watch George Carlin videos.

It's important to laugh in these tough times, and with Carlin's passing last night, we feel it's vital that you immediately watch as many as possible. In this way, you can remember the irreverence of Nellie Ball, the defiance of the Hawks, the anger of Yao Ming, and, well... Ron Artest. Carlin would want to kick the living sh*t out of us for getting all sappy, so I'll just say he's been one of my biggest heroes and influences, and it sucks he's gone. So long, buddy. If there is an afterlife, we know you're pissing someone off in it.
