Leading Off (6/8/11)

Dallas Mavericks 86, Miami Heat 83. In what will be known as the Fever Game, Dirk Nowitzki — battling a sinus infection that had his temperature rising as high as 101 or 102, depending on the report — shook off early game struggles and once again took over the fourth quarter. He scored 10 points, including the game-winner with 14 seconds left. Tyson Chandler also came through with 16 rebounds. I did my part by staying ambulatory. The series is tied 2-2.

Carrollton Neighborhood Taken Over By Egrets. First, I owe myself $10 because I made a bet a few days ago I would never write that sentence. Second, “The city also told residents, next year they can try to prevent the birds from nesting by putting fake owls and fake snakes in their trees.” Just read it.

American Eagle Employee Investigated For Pocketing Fake Fees. Sort of a genius scam because it would certainly be hard to pick out fake overcharging from legitimate overcharging. If I went to airport and put on a blue blazer, I’m pretty sure I could get a few people to pony up a $14 ground to air conversion fee. In unrelated news, I will be out of the office today. And I need to borrow a blue blazer.

Also, I See You Big German. Yep.
