Amusing Story from Boston
Derek Jeter Center In Boston?
Yankee Wants Naming Rights

BOSTON -- The FleetCenter may soon have a new name that Bostonians won't like.
The owners of the FleetCenter are auctioning off naming rights to the facility for charity. You bid on eBay and get to re-name the facility for a day.
Derek Jeter, of the New York Yankees, had his lawyer bid, according to the Boston Herald.
The FleetCenter could be renamed the Derek Jeter Center Tuesday, unless officials decide to refuse the bid.
If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you.

Fark.com won this for the 28th, and voted to name it "Fark.com UFIA Arena"
UFIA stands for "unsolicited finger in anus".
Second place was "Fark.com Abe Vigoda Memorial Center"
Abe Vigoda is still alive.
The officials involved said no, so it will become "Boston Garden" for a day.
Even Fark's third choice was the best.

Meditation is not the repetition of the word, nor the experiencing of vision, nor the cultivating of silence. The bead and the word do quieten the chattering mind, but this is a form of self-hypnosis. You might as well take a pill.
