Here's George's spliced together version
And here's a sample of the original
This, my friends, is what the internet was invented for. Thank you Al Gore.

There has been some discussion about whether the Committee to Give Dwayne Wade the Love He Deserves should disband now that it looks like the nation has finally caught on to his greatness. Well, thanks to a monumental mistake by a member of Miami’s city council I can assure everyone that the Committee must remain intact. At the championship parade in downtown Miami Dwayne Wade was introduced on the stage by some councilwoman as “Wade Jones.” The full introduction went something like this; “he’s calm and collected, has a will to win, because his name, OF COURSE, is WADE JONES!” The conviction with which she says “OF COURSE, WADE JONES” just takes it to another comedic level, and then you can hear the crowd wondering “who is she talking about” and then start laughing.
Heat Owner Micky Arison didn’t fare much better than the councilwoman who introduced D-Wade. Throughout the playoffs the Heat used the term “White Hot” as their marketing slogan. Arison went up to the podium and wanted to cap off his speech by telling Miami to “stay white hot.” Seems simple enough, doesn’t it? Not if you’re Micky Arison. Instead he wound up telling all of Miami, the most culturally diverse city in America, to “stay white.” I cannot imagine any worse town in America to tell to “stay white”
Here’s an interview that my favorite sports radio program did latter in the day with Micky Arison talking about him telling Miami to "stay white" and it also includes audio of the councilwoman introducing "Wade Jones".

36 Points, 10 Rebounds, 5 Assists, 4 Steals, and 3 Blocks, Finals MVP.
I was alone when I said it 3 years ago, but now the nation, nay the world, must agree;
Dwayne Wade is the Best Player in the NBA and Will Usher in the Next Golden Age for the NBA.

42 points in game 3, followed by 36 points in game 4, followed by 43 points (and 17 in the 4th Quarter) in game 5. A player as young as Wade hasn’t had this large of an impact on an NBA Finals series since Magic Johnson filled in for Kareem and scored 42 back in game 7 of the 1980 Finals.
It appears that D-Wade has decided that he will single handedly win the Finals for the Miami Heat. If for some reason you have not been watching this almost superhuman display be sure to put Tuesday night at 9:00 on your calendar.

In addition to the substance of my job, the walk to work is pretty interesting also. One building over from where I work there is a guy who is living in a 3-sided glass store front apartment under 24/7 surveilance by 4 digital stream cameras. To see what I’m talking about go to www.lookinginlookingout.com. If you watch his webcam at the right time you might even see me staring in awkwardly at him while I’m on my lunch break.
In an alley on the way to my job there is another interesting installation, rather than explain it I’ll just show you a picture:
Here's an explanation of what's going on here
Lastly, I don’t have a picture of this one, but another building nearby is covered in fake grass as part of miniature golf course thing, I’ll try to get a picture and post it sometime this week. For now you can read this description
Lastly, anyone who knows what song I’m quoting in the title gets bonus points.

Here's a great retrospective of Tenta's career
For those wondering how my job is going, I love it. It's quite demanding, but even more rewarding.
