Saturday Black Vultures

Mdf

Links!

Good afternoon! The Knicks play their second preseason game against the Celtics tonight. There'll be a game thread up an hour or so before game time. For now, I have a few links.

- Here's a thing about black vultures:

Like all New World Vultures, the Black Vulture often defecates on its own legs, using the evaporation of the water in the feces and/or urine to cool itself, a process known as urohidrosis.

HOW have I never thought of this?

- Amar'e Stoudemire is still considered questionable for tonight. Probably best to just sit this one out and exploit the loooong rest until the next preseason game, which isn't until Friday.

- Ronnie Brewer's recovery will be reevaluated early this coming week.

- A few days old, but here are Iman Shumpert and Iman Shumpert visiting the Museum of Modern Art.

- I still haven't watched this week's episode of 30 Rock, but apparently there was an Amar'e Stoudemire name-drop in there.

- For the stat friends among us, my friend Rohan's post about the value of a +6 efficiency differential is pretty cool.

- Patrick Ewing: Still searching for a coaching gig.

- Steve Novak really sounds thrilled to be back, and he looked it in Thursday night's game.

- Some Stoudemire and Anthony babies participated in a baby fashion show. I wonder if the team babies have playdates. If they do, their Little Tikes basketball games are probably more athletic than anything you or I could muster.

That's all for now! See y'all at game time.
