What If They Grew A Steesh: Judge Judy

In the year since Oprah passed away, Jude Judy has taken over the top spot for daytime tv ratings. Of course we were all sad to see Oprah go. There’s no doubt that she is up in heaven  suggesting to God design ideas and weight-loss tips.

Judge Judy, who makes a reported $45 million a year ($45 MILLION A YEAR!!!!) had no problem taking in Oprah’s viewers, made up mainly of lonely housewives and people who leave the television on for their animals when they go to work.

Clyde Drexler

Clyde “The Glide” Drexler played in the NBA from 1983 to 1998, mostly for the Portland Trailblazers, as well as a few years with the Houston Rockets to round out his career. He won a championship with the Rockets in 1995, but it really doesn’t count since Jordan took that year off to play baseball and gamble.

Clyde was a ten-time All-Star and member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, the NBA named him one of basketball’s fifty greatest players as of 1996. He was part of the 1992 USA Basketball “Dream Team.” I watched the documentary on said team last night and believe you me, there are more steeshes to come from that film.
