Bryant, West Hold On To Win NBA All-Star game

Kobe Bryant got the scoring record, Kevin Durant the MVP, and the West got the win – barely.

Even after that duo piled up the points, the NBA All-Star game came down to a defensive play.


A bloodied Bryant scored 27 points, moving past Michael Jordan as the career scoring leader in the game, Durant had 36 in an MVP performance, and Blake Griffin‘s interception of LeBron James‘ pass secured the Western Conference’s 152-149 win over the East on Sunday night.

    I collect these. Inclusions in this list are welcome. Also, observe that in some instances I’m not sure the foundation of the particular expression. For those who have knowledge or theories of origin for anything below, I’d like to listen to of your stuff. I hope you enjoy these.

    Talking Through Your Hat

    To talk nonsense or to lie. c1885. an interview on the planet entitled “How About White Shirts”, a reporter asked a New York streetcar conductor what he thought about efforts to get the conductors to wear white shirts like their counterparts in Chicago. “Dey’re talkin’ tru deir hats” he was quoted as replying.]

Apparently they named a goat after him which had his same love of life including, in the goat’s case, eating hats.]

    Old Hat

    Old, dull stuff; from fashion. appears to come from the proven fact that hat fashions are never stand still. The fact from the matter is the fact that hat fashions had not been changing very fast whatsoever until the turn from the 19th Century. The expression therefore is probably about 100 years old.]

    Mad Like a Hatter

    Totally demented, crazy. did, indeed, go mad. They inhaled fumes from the mercury which was area of the process of making felt hats. Not recognizing the violent twitching and derangement as symptoms of a brain disorder, people made fun of affected hat-makers, often treating them as drunkards.

    Hat At hand

    A demonstration of humility. For example, “I come hat in hand” means that I are available in deference or perhaps in weakness. assume that the origins are from feudal instances when serfs or any lower members of feudal society was required to take off their hats in the presence of the lord or monarch (remember the Dr. Seuss book “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins”?). A hat is the most prideful adornment.]
