"He would alienate the other kids, so I was really the only friend he had," Ravens coach John Harbaugh told the Associated Press in September. "We joke that dad’s (coaching) profession was the perfect profession for Jim, because after two years, he’d be like, ‘It’s time to move, dad. I’ve lost all my friends.’ We were in Iowa one time and dad felt bad because we were leaving for Michigan. He tried to break it to us, and Jim goes, ‘Just in time, dad. I just ran out of my last friend.’" #Jimhasnofriends

Tiazzoldi Tables

Inspired from Alice in Wonderland, Fabulesque is a series of Table developed by Caterina Tiazzoldi (a Torino New York Based Architect) for the Circolo dei Lettori located in a Baroque Palace in Torino

Realized in laminated wood and MDF, each table has its own color and profile.

A parametric device permits you to adapt all the profiles to different functions (smaller for the coffee table, square for the dining table etc.).

WNA 10.19.11: Rondooo

Yes, I know this is turning out to be an NBA-centric type of day, but for those of you who have been regular visitors, you know how it is with this site, you never know what you’re gonna get.

The second installment in the Weekly Ninja Award is dedicated my homeboy Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics.  Besides being part of the not-ninja-worthy NBA lockout, albeit on the more populist side, Rondo has been touring around the country with a virtual pickup team called the "Big Blue All-Stars" (I’m guessing this is Kentucky related).

They may be taking large craps on the heads of mediocre teams, but it’s still a site to behold.  Without further adieu:

"One of the things we’ve come up with in the negotiations is what we call a ‘stretch’ provision. And a stretch would allow a team to now stretch the money, the payment, over a long period of time. So if they decide to cut a guy, they can pay him over 10 or 12 years as opposed to paying him all in one lump sum." - Billy Hunter (center above) from the NBAPA

Will we ever see basketball again? Read about the gap between them, also the source of the image.
