I am an idiot.

So I'm watching the NC State-UConn game, which is being played at Fresno State, and for a second I actually think to myself, "Who is Mart Center?"

And why does he need to be saved?

I wish you had HaloScan, so I could make that little laughing face. Toooooo funny!

Martinias Centrelli was born August 7, 1972 along the shores of Southern Italy. Equipped with only a basketball and a pasta recipe, he was shipped to live with some dubious cousins in Trenton, New Jersey.

Wanting to free himself of the bad family name stateside, he changed his moniker to Mart Center. He stuck to basketball and made the varsity team as an 8th grader.

As he grew, he tried every position on the court. By his sophomore season, he was seven feet tall, and had gathered the interest of a few East Coast schools, like Delaware and Seton Hall. But he was interested in going westward, and accepted a scholarship to Fresno State without even visiting California.

Mart Center found himself right back into a family of trouble, as Fresno State had reached new heights of both glamour and scandal under former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian. No school wanted a transfer tainted by controversy, so he quit the team and left school.

Moving to Hollywood, Mart Center found himself in demand as an animal wrangler. He earned extra money obtaining pets for the stars. One fateful night a well-known actor ordered 10 gerbils. Mart had 7 on hand, and had to get the other 3 from an unknown vendor. As it turned out, these gerbils were rabid and bit him in several places.

Mart Center has been in the hospital ever since, and his fans in Fresno have taken up the cause to Save Mart Center.

(Should I put this in Wikipedia?)

APL, you are not an idiot. Didn't anyone ever tell you that for every kid you have (or adopt, in my case) they take 1/2 of your remaining brain?
So I went down by 1/2 with OD, and 1/2 of the remainder with YD, and 1/2 of what's left with Gigi. I'm screwed.
