    Tomorrow is the big day.

    Face of the franchise will represent the D tomorrow:

    Andre Drummond will represent Pistons at NBA draft lottery | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

    The Pistons are in line for the seventh pick in next month’s draft and have a 3.6% chance of landing the first pick, a 4.16% chance at the second pick and 4.91% chance at the third pick in the lottery.

    To the nearest 3 decimal places, the probability that the Pistons will draft:

    1st: .043
    2nd: .049
    3rd: .058
    7th: .599
    8th: .232
    9th: .018
    10th: .000

    It's good for us that the draft isn't imbalanced. The differential between 8th and 3rd shouldn't be as much as usual.

    Andre Drummond was asked to rep our Pistons at the lottery.
    ...Andre wears #1.
    ...Our Pistons will have the #1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft!

    Wonder why our rookie starter, Singler, was overlooked for this honor...

    You don't want to take that bet, Nemo. Even if you win...you lose.

    As I've been telling anyone who will listen on my travels, everyone does it wrong when it comes to Vegemite. People spread it on like peanut butter then complain they don't like it. Hell if I put that much on I would hate it too! Small doses only. An easier and tastier introduction is to make a toasted sandwich with Vegemite and cheese. In fact Vegemite needs to be combined with toasted forms (and generous amounts of butter or margarine).

    My conversion rate is still low but many now understand.

    Having said all that, dulce de leche is king.
