Spider-man, Spider-man...George Takei should be Spider-man.

This week belongs to George Takei.  He's doing all kinds of awesome shit on Howard Stern as the guest announcer for the week and now he's lobbying for the Spider-man role in "Turn Off the Dark".  Its more of a cheap advertising ploy for his new musical (Allegiance, coming in 2012), but it makes sense.  He's got great moves, a great voice, and great musculature.

I haven't seen "Turn Off The Dark", but I have a feeling George would make it better.

Oh my.

A Star Wars Parody That Isnt Nauseating

Star Wars parodies can be the absolute worst. Just hearing the opening credits with people's rinky dink, second rate bullshit give me douche chills.

Against all odds, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost made something real funny.  When dudes are wearing garbage can lids on their heads, you know its gonna be good.

Now THESE are the droids I've been looking for.

Can't wait.

Dog Poop Insurance

No one likes to step in dog shit, especially in Vans. I'm surprised Foot Locker doesn't offer this yet.

Charlie Sheen vs. Mike Tyson Quote Quiz

I love Mike Tyson, and not in an "ironic" way.  My dad would take me to sports bars when I was a kid to watch Tyson's fights because he thought it was a waste of money to get Pay-Per-View for a fight that only lasted 30 seconds. There would be so much build up and the commentators would convince you that the other guy had a chance, then Iron Mike would lay the dude out instantly. Tyson's trainer, Cuz D'Amato, literally took a kid off the street and made him a champion.  After D'Amato died, Don King took over and made him down a road that led to jail and face tattoos, but Tyson is still my favorite fighter of all time. If you haven't seen the Tyson documentary, check it out. He's also in some show on Animal Planet about his pigeons.

Personal shinfo aside, ESPN made up this quiz where you have to figure out who said it: Charlie Sheen or Mike Tyson.

1. "Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists."
a) Charlie Sheen
b) Mike Tyson

2. "My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!"
a) Charlie Sheen
b) Mike Tyson

3. "It's like I'm a naked tornado that comes through a city and there's just so much wreckage. There's so much destruction, and when it's finally over, it's like the morning after and you're sober and ... what the f--- happened here?"
a) Charlie Sheen
b) Mike Tyson

Philadelphia Eagle Owner/Oscar Winner

Jeff Lurie has been called many things, and as owner of the Philadelphia Eagles I'm sure not all of them have been nice. After last night, he can now be called "Academy Award Winner".

Lurie, who's worth a billion dollars, owns a production company that produced "Inside Job" about the financial crisis.  Unlike his Eagles, the documentary was able to go all the way and win the big one.

Hopefully Lurie gets the acting bug and takes on the roll of "owner willing to pay all-pro players to come to the Eagles" this offseason.
Pay the man. Seriously.
