Game 1 Of The CBA Finals Between Beijing And Guangdong In Its Entirety

Game 1 Of The CBA Finals Between Beijing And Guangdong In Its Entirety
The CBA employs a 1-2-2-2 finals format, meaning the team with the worse record starts Game 1 at home. Theoretically it leads to longer series, but that's incumbent on the home team actually winning Game 1. Beijing, as the heavy underdogs against the four-time defending champs, was in a must-win situation on Wednesday, playing for the first time at Olympic-quality Wukesong. Embedded above and after the jump, you'll find the game in its entirety.

Poetic Prose On Chinese Silkworms, Specifically The Torture Of

Silk worm eggs featured image
"But now is when the Chinese torture comes in, so if you're squeamish, close your eyes now..." Read the video description after the jump. You might think "poetic prose" is a generous mischaracterization, but I say: anyone who can make me laugh out loud with the words, "All I could keep thinking about were those poor silkworms in that boiling water!" is a-okay by me.

Honda’s Commercial Featuring “Foreign Language Couple” (Psst… It’s Chinese)

Honda's Commercial Foreign Language Couple
Less racist than Hyundai's commercial, some would say. Although really, Hyundai's commercial is not racist. Let's chill a bit with the R word, alright? The term has begun to lose meaning due to overuse. American culture almost has to invent new ways to differentiate between different levels of racism, kind of like what Inuits do with snow. We're basically at the point where "Chink in the armor" seems to be America's baseline racism, which is a shame, because I think that designation should belong to something like, "Get off my lawn you squinty-eyed squarehead." But as is, real racism now has to be designated "racistest" (or something), and a comment like "Asians are good at math" is "raci"... instead of, you know, true.

Here Is A Bunch Of Hot Women In Bikinis

Sand isn't really all that sexy
I’ve made you wait long enough. After the jump you’ll find the promo video for the 37th Miss Bikini International 2012 along with more pictures. Who cares if there’s a chance they’re all Russian? The Miss Bikini International Pageant seems to have an official-looking website (MissBikini.cc), but it’s hard to navigate, probably because it was designed for... Read more »

Two Dunks In Particular Made Sunday’s Beijing-Shanxi Game Kind Of Awesome; Also: Marbury’s Tears Of Joy

Two Dunks In Particular Made Sunday’s Beijing-Shanxi Game Kind Of Awesome
Stephon Marbury has had his rebirth, his redemption, and now his catharsis -- in the form of a good, long cry. In the waning moments of Sunday's Game 5, which saw Beijing oust Shanxi to claim its first CBA finals appearance in its 17-year history, cameras appeared to catch Marbury shedding a few tears on the court. But it was in the tunnels afterwards -- the bathroom, to be precise -- that he really broke down, crying "like a young child," according to the TV journalist in the next video. He then embraced his head coach. When he finally composed himself to talk to the assembled media, he said, "Man, this is the best feeling I ever had playing basketball."
