With the beloved Oklahoma City Thunder sweeping the 2011 NBA champs, the Dallas Mavericks, we can now wait on the Nuggets and Lakers and think about the evolution of James Harden’s facial hair. With the beard and mohawk being the best look in the NBA all year, Harden dropped 29 in the clinching first round game. We are fans.

Thom Yorke Tuesday: “Skirting on the Surface”

Back in 2009, when Thom Yorke was playing with Atoms For Peace, he played Los Angeles and debuted the track, “Skirting on the Surface.” A soft number, and a few years later, it sounds like something that the full band should be arranging, just as they did in Dallas this past month.

Michael Irvin: Badass

Michael Irvin is an icon of machismo NFL stars; cocaine, women, All-Pro, Hall of Fame, Dallas Cowboys, badass. The fact that he has come out in support of gay marriage, appeared on the cover of Out Magazine, and honored is late, gay brother with respectful, progressive language about gay rights in sports and the USA, makes him one of the better voices sports has had in years. A great moment for sports, gay rights, the NFL, Irvin, etc.

Phil Jackson

As Phil Jackson, the 11x time NBA Championship coach with both the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers says goodbye (at least for the time-being) to the sidelines after being swept by the Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs, we look at some thoughts and moments with the Zen Master. While coaching the greatest of all-time, Michael Jordan, and top-5er in Kobe Bryant, the greatest rebounding forward in Dennis Rodman, the greatest Robin in Scottie Pippen, and the enigmatic lazy but absurdly talented Shaquille O’Neal, Jackson has been at the helm of some of the greatest teams and moments in NBA history. A sweep will not tarnish a legacy that includes winning an NBA title in 11 of his 20 years as a coach. —The Citrus Report staff

NFL Anthems

We know that Wiz Khalifa’s “Black And Yellow ” is the Super Bowl anthem of 2011, and if the Pittsburgh Steelers actually win the Super Bowl in Dallas against the Packers this Sunday, then “Black and Yelllow” (although we prefer the Snoop guest spot remix) will go down as a major NFL song.

But we look back at some of the classic NFL anthems of the past years, not just Super Bowl songs, but dances, songs, and videos shot by NFL players or sung by fans that rival “Black and Yellow” as football anthems. —The Citrus Report staff

e5b32a5a7aImage1.gif A cool piece on America’s World’s Fairs Of The 1930s united states united San Francisco francisco dallas culture citrus report Chicago article amid the great 1930s

This is a cool piece that we found on Antiques and the Arts Online about America’s World’s Fairs Of The 1930s. We in San Francisco feel close to this because we held a World’s Fair in 1939. And we think these events, due to the circumstances that were the 1930s around the world, were of interesting importance to various regions showing off for others.

As the article notes:

In the 1930s, amid the Great Depression and the rise of fascism in Europe, millions flocked to World’s Fairs in Chicago, San Diego, Dallas, Cleveland, San Francisco and New York City, some of which ran for two seasons. Visitors encountered American optimism and progress in many forms, offering visions of a modern, technological tomorrow unlike anything seen before. The fairs popularized modern design and promoted the concept of science and consumerism as salvations from the nation’s economic woes. They “outfitted the United States with a lifebuoy that prevented the American political economy from sinking,” says World’s Fairs historian Robert W. Rydell.
