We get a lot of funny looks when we tell people about our tendency to sit on the toilet backwards. What weve noticed, however, is that those funny looks tend to evaporate when people bother to actually try doing their business Slater-style, à la Saved by the Bell.
We get some funny looks when we talk about the Phoenix Mercury, too, but we arent quite sure why -- the team is playing great, and we love any local squad that wins. (We can only assume people havent gotten around to watching the Mercury this season.) And it doesnt get much better than tonights game. The tilt pits the 2007 WNBA champion Mercury against the 2008 Western Conference-winning San Antonio Silver Stars, and will feature, health permitting, a full third of the 2009 Western Conference All-Stars.
