We're off to a very Mark Cuban morning around here. As you might have heard, the Mavericks owner was fined $200,000 by the NBA for running onto the court to protest the refereeing last week and, more to the point, a blog entry he wrote suggesting a new way to select playoff officials.

There are two ways to look at this. On one hand, we find it pretty amazing that a guy can drop 200 grand on a blog post. Rather badass, frankly.


But on the other ... well, considering recent news, when we sit down and do the math, by Cuban's own estimation, his penis just shrank by a fraction of an inch. It's not much, but hey, every little bit counts.
