Radio station KNUJ-FM, a sports/talk station in Bakersfield, CA, is having an NBA playoff prediction contest with a valuable first prize--a one-way Greyhound ticket anywhere (else) in the continental United States. Or so I am told by a friend of a cousin who lives down in Fresno. At any rate, he tells me that the Trail Blazers are currently the third favorite pick of Bakersfielders (or is that Bakersfielderites?), behind the L*kers and the Spurs.
I'd provide a link, but the radio stations website is, at the moment, overtaken by cybersquatters.
Feel free to comment on these, er, interesting developments.
