Weekend Recession: Watch Dirk Nowitzky Perform Dramatic Reading of "Oops… I Did It Again"

Last Friday we brought you a segment called the Weekend Recession.  A little light-hearted video to leave you with over the next couple of days.  Our moment of zen, so to speak.

So we thought long and hard about what would leave the best taste in your mouth until Monday, and we came up with this – A seven foot NBA player performing a dramatic reading of pop has-been, Britney Spears. Why not, right?

Check it out.  Laugh, cry.  Your sides will split, your eyes may bleed.  But please enjoy nonetheless.  Also come back tomorrow and vote on our latest weekend poll.  Thanks!

Via the Huffington Post:

Dirk Nowitzki is not that innocent.

The beloved seven-foot German, who plays power forward for the Dallas Mavericks, left the locker room for the den and regaled us with a dramatic reading from his favorite poem, “Oops! …I Did It Again” by noted American writer Britney Spears.

Just hilarious!

Albany Police Chief Rips Critics of Occupy Albany Eviction

Welcome Big Government readers…

I’d like to introduce everyone to my new favorite police chief in the entire country, Steven Krokoff of the Albany Police Department.

Krokoff was recently summoned before the Albany Common Council to explain his department’s actions during the Dec. 22 showdown between police and Occupy Albany protesters in Academy Park.  Apparently the council is no fan of allowing police officers the ability to defend themselves in the line of duty.

The following is one of the most epic verbal a** kicking’s that I have ever had the pleasure of hearing.

Krokoff aimed his most scathing words at two council members in particular, Anton Konev and Lester Freeman, who have been vocal critics of the department in the wake of both incidents — Konev as a staunch supporter of Occupy Albany and Freeman as the representative of the South End.

“Shame on Councilman Konev and Councilman Freeman, who at every turn, seem so willing to distort the truth of any situation, no matter how tragic, and use it for their own personal gain,” Krokoff said.

“Shame on you both for mattering so little to yourselves and your community that you have to create hate and further half-truths just to feel some sense of relevancy. This entire city has seen the content of your character, and I pity you both.”

Kudos to Chief Krokoff for showing the community that at least one man is unwilling to play political games with his officer’s lives, just for the sake of placating attention-seeking degenerates.  He is the anti-David Soares.

Incidentally, I e-mailed the Times Union earlier this week to ask if they thought it pertinent information that some members of the Common Council that are criticizing the Albany police, were vociferously participating in the Occupy Albany assembly.

Shockingly, I have yet to hear back from them.
