Skinny Bean of Denver and I talked about this yesterday: what happens to the USC Rose Bowl 2006 Champions hats and T-shirts that were printed up before the game, and all such gear from championship events off all types? Now we know. I'm kind of disappointed, I would love erroneous championship shirts and hats and had hoped there was a market for the stuff. You could have four straight years of Buffalo Bills Super Bowl Champion stuff. That would be utterly awesome, especially if you're as big a fan as Austin's own Bob M., who also lives and dies with the Notre Dame Fighting Doberman Pinscher Genitalia. Link from Ace.

On a utterly unrelated note, some French guy tried to break an old urinal with a hammer. I find the assault thoroughly uninteresting, but am deeply dismayed that:

A 2004 poll of 500 arts figures ranked "Fountain" [the aforementioned urinal] as the most influential work of modern art - ahead of Pablo Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," Andy Warhol's screen prints of Marilyn Monroe and "Guernica," Picasso's depiction of war's devastation.

"Fountain" is estimated at $3.6 million.

That is truly pathetic. Modern art is a joke, apparently, and the joke's on us.

So you mean when I finally join the peace corps I may have a chance to see a buffalo bills championship t-shirt on some New Guinean while he is spear fighting for a wife?

I am freeze drying some urine to compliment our societies view of art. On that note, just because two gay cowboys are humping each other does not mean this is the best film ever. Just another example of many, how dumb actors are and the press for giving them airtime.
