This is the girl who co-starred in The Artist, Berenice Bejo. Now, what does a big-shot Hollywood actress have in common with The Big Mac Blog? We share the same birthday - July 7. She was born three years after myself, in Argentina, whereas I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. She can act. I can't. She's hot with a good nose. My look has been called by the critics as, "punishing to the naked eye, but the hair is amazing", and my nose has been hailed as "the second coming of Barbara Streisand." Other than that, we're twins.

The NBA's second half begins tonight, and your Dallas Mavericks host the Brooklyn Nets. This stretch kicks off what will feel like a baseball schedule for your defending NBA champs - between Feb. 28 and March 13 the Mavs will play 10 games. I still think the NBA should have done double-headers.
Normally the world wouldn't pay much attention to the Mavs hosting a bad Nets team, but the fighting NJ's feature one of the key players in the summer of 2012: guard Deron Williams. Next to Dwight Howard, where D-Will will go after this season has been of great interest to the NBA world and Russia as well considering the man who owns Nets is Russian.
Unlike Howard, who has listed approximately 33 clubs as a team would OK a trade to, D-Will talk has been compartively minimal. Supposedly D-Will has listed the Mavs as a potential destination of interest.
D-Will would be a wonderful addition and should keep the Mavs near the top of the league for years to come, but this talk feels more leverage than reality. Outside of the Rangers adding Yu Darvish this past offseason, it has been years since any huge, high profile name has come to town via free agency. A trade? Yes. But not since the days of Tom Hicks money whipping free agents has this area seen a true, front-line free agent land here (Terrell Owens doesn't count; only two teams wanted him).
Yet the Mavs are always in the talk to land D-Will or Howard, yet me thinks neither of them will land here.
