Thunder, lightning, three overtimes, late nights, I'm exhausted. It this sounds like a typical week in my sexy nightlife, but please. A simple request. Let's wrap these up a little earlier please! Seriously, I'm exhausted! Some of us have to work in the morning! I got yelled at for dozing off at my desk! So thanks, Andrew Shaw, for the game winner. Next time, slap one in during regulation. In fact, note to all players: That's really what regulation is for. It's to decide the game.

Gabriel Dominguez is awfully calm for a man whose office at Southport Lanes in Lakeview is a claustrophobic's worst nightmare: 10 feet long and slightly wider than an average person's wingspan. It also features a rather unusual occupational hazard. "I am ready for the ball," he said confidently. Seconds later, it becomes apparent why.

Chad Michaels was the ultimate perfectionist on "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars.

Yet somewhere along the way, many of us traded in our dreams for something we consider to be more practical. Why? Almost everyone I know hates his or her job. It seems they all have aspirations to do something creative but are too afraid to go for it. I don't get it. At what point do we go from believing we can do anything we dream of to settling for a job that pays the bills?

It would be easy for Dwyane Wade to forecast a second straight NBA title in 2013 for his Miami Heat. After all, the ballyhooed Big Three of him, LeBron James and Chris Bosh are coming off a season that saw them advance to their second Finals in as many seasons together before knocking off Oklahoma City. However, when RedEye offered him that bait, Wade refused to take it. "I'm not a predictor because you never know what's gonna go from one day to the next," he said, shaking his head.

Something this election year really disturbs me. It's not the super PAC spending or that Mitt Romney hasn't released 10 years' worth of tax returns. (What are we supposed to find out? That he's rich?) It's that a guy's American success story is now being used against him. Any other time, a guy like Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, would be admired as a great example to follow. After receiving a juris doctorate and a master's of business administration, he became a financial success by building an investment company from...
