Body for 6 Degrees from LeBron James to IRON MAN 2


1. LEBRON JAMES is the tattooed NBA superstar currently leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to what could be their first championship. At eighteen years of age, before he'd even played in his first NBA game, James signed and astonishing  $90 MILLION shoe deal with Nike.

2. $90 MILLION is the also amount of money in damages sought by Paltalk Holdings in their lawsuit against Microsoft. The suit, which was settled in March 2009, claimed patent infringements over technology appearing in the multiplayer version of the groundbreaking Xbox game HALO.

3. HALO fans know that every version of the game is loaded with Easter eggs, whether it be discoverable characters, quirky behaviors or simply graffiti written on the cyber scenery. For example a hidden schematic image of Master Chief's armor in the original game references Thor's "Mjolnir", the popular meme "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" and even lyrics from the song "Basket Case" by GREEN DAY.

4. GREEN DAY often licenses their songs for use in video games such as "Tony Hawk: Ride" and the upcoming edition of "Rock Band", as well as movies like "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", "Surf's Up" and "AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME".

5. THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME is the second in Mike Meyer's break-out spy spoof series. This film features Dr. Evil traveling back in time to steal Autsin's mojo and thus prevent him from causing the villain's future defeat. It's a plot straight out of "The Terminator", with the mojo standing in for SARAH CONNOR.

6.  SARAH CONNOR was most recently played on television by actress Lena Headey and it may be the role she's best known for. More recently she was a voice actor on "The Super Hero Squad Show" as the voice of Black Widow.  The Black Widow character, of course, makes her live-action debut in this summer's IRON MAN 2.

...So Iron Man will be leaving his current pad to go to New York as well then?

*Ducks before Cleveland fans can throw stuff*

Here's one degreee, $90million is what Starks makes everytime he farts. In other words, the King is just a peasant next to Tony

At least the 6 degrees is slightly original. However Top 6 reason Mania is starting to suck:

1.Top "insert # here" Lists

2. Pointless "insert #"Lists

3. Super #$%&@^* "insert # here" Lists

4. Look a squirrel who looks a lot like Abe Lincoln!

5. Richard Roundtree as "Shaft" being one of the 10 most influential African Americans in Sci-Fi

6. Mega Fox stalkers and LISTS!!!!!!! Do we need any more LISTS?!! Do we have any Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt stalker around here?

Thank you for coming and putting up with my rant. Have a nice day.

 No ring for the King! No ring for the King!  Kobe 4 Life.  The Lake Show back to back!

Make a list of how awesome Super 8 is looking so far!

Thebron James is a chump cry-baby queen.

What kind of self labeled warrior cries to Nike to take the footage away from camera men of him getting dunked on in a skills camp? What a waste of space.


I love how Princess James cowers from admitting he smokes pot and says he got it from suspectable persons. Then gets schooled last season and has to wear aT shirt reminding him he is MVP because he lacks self esteem.

And now Crackdeal Kazaam Oneil is going to to help him beat better teams. Did Kazaam's mom sell him some good and plenty and say it was Magic Beans that turn him into Wilt Chamberlin?
