I don't think Dirk is an alcoholic. Perhaps he's big on the party scene, as a lot of these guys are, but alcoholic, I doubt it. I mean it's one thing to party a lot, and all that, but that doesn't make him an alcoholic. I was under the impression that alcoholism was when you drink to the point of where you don't care about what negative impacts (whether it be medical, physical or social or other) it is having upon you.
Of course, he did knock up and then get enganged to a convict, so....
So I'd pretty much agree that I wouldn't point at Dirk and call him an alcoholic because he has a partying lifestyle. If that's the objective bar set for alcoholism, then probably about half the world is alcoholic.

By the way, if you haven't seen the movie Barfly, which is a fairly romanticized depiction of Charles Bukowski, you should definitely check it out.
My aunt decided to stop drinking just a couple of days ago. She wound up buying $300 worth of Colon Cleanse online while drunk but couldn't remember doing it at all. She only found out after receiving a receipt via email. We have been told to expect some for our birthday presents.
So the Spurs are still old and going nowhere next season, eh? That seems to be a popular opinion in the main forum.
By the way is literacy and the ability to write clearly overrated these days?
Apparently the Nuggets were (are?) interested in picking up Bowen.
^Hmm..that would be interesting. Be weird to see him in a blue uniform. I still think he'd make a great player/coach guy.
So I adopted a cat from a local shelter and now my inbox is flooded with vet and cat care tips. Annoying as hell...but the cat, Salvadore, is terrific..
And Josh, where are you?
