I'd rather date Snooki.

Clearly they’re phoning it in in Jersey right now. The Nets are waiting by the phone for their landlord in Brooklyn to tell them the new digs are ready and that Lebron will be picking up John Wall and meeting them with the keys. And while someday the Nets just might be the biggest boast in the borough Biggie built, for now they remain the most embarrassing thing in the Garden State. And no, I’m not forgetting about Jersey Shore.

Last month, for a column in ESPN the Magazine’s “Fan Edition,” the essentially-coachless Nets allowed a fan to call a play in a blowout loss to the Celtics. The play failed less awfully than the plays called by professionals, and so this month the Nets are offering a fan the chance to coach an entire game. If this sounds familiar it’s because you are one of the unforunate souls who paid witness to the Whoopi Goldberg atrocity “Eddie.”

Egads, what a situation. Uh-oh. I just broke the cardinal rule: Never mention New Jersey and “Situation” in the same blog post. Because now this is going to happen…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What a specifically shitty time to live in the state already referred to as America’s Toilet. You know it’s bad when you’re getting pity from Detroit.
