The Knicks' night could have been better, Shaq said poop and Tim Tebow may get a mention or two before the day is out. 

Welcome to the Daily Radar. Today's conundrum is Screech Powers' most frustrating mistake in Bayside history.  Leave your comments in the place marked "Comments."

Let's dish. 

In this edition:



It's getting tougher to find people that have not be taken over by the Tebola Virus. Here are a couple of Jewish fans showing that they too can be out of their minds. 

Question on Everybody's Mind: Still not on Tebow's band wagon?

Our Take: Hahaha...No. The man is a mediocre quarterback and never gobble up anything mediocre, unless it's pizza, or a breakfast burrito.

All this story means is that just about anybody can lose their minds.

Jews Love Tim Tebow (SportsGrid) 



The love of Tim Tebow has reached new heights, and if you're hungry enough (who isn't?) you can take a bite out of the Denver Broncos' QB. Well, sort of. 

Question on Everybody's Mind: Does He Taste Good? 

Our Take: I have no idea, but this girl might know. Or maybe even this chick. Surely the pizza has to taste good, although, at first it might seem rough but it will bring you great joy as you near the end. Good luck toughing through it all to get to the good parts.

Tebow has reached new heights of popularity, and it seems like with each new week, somebody has to do something in regards the Broncos' QB. Whether it's expressing their love for him through food, song or dance, people continue to go crazy over Tebow.

It wasn't a banner night for the New York Knicks who got their booty spanked on national TV and lost Carmelo Anthony in the process. 

Question on Everybody's Mind: How bad is it?

Our Take: It's not LeBron James' free throws bad, but it is something to worry about. Anthony sprained his ankle in the third quarter and the X-Rays were negative. Tests done on the Knicks by the Grizzlies, however, showed they were a pretty crappy team.

Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Panic Buttons

The Knicks were supposed to have figured out their defense by getting Tyson Chandler. I guess winning a title isn't that easy. Anthony should be back soon, but this team has to worry about that baby little hiccup of being far more mediocre than they thought they were.

Inside the NBA is a pretty lax production, but they still frown on tossing up expletives like they were free throw bricks. Shaquille O'Neal said poop. Rather, he used the expletive that I use when I find that McDonald's forgot my fries when I pull away from the drive-thru. 

Question on Everybody's Mind: OMG, No he didn't.

Our Take: Yeah, let's all just calm down for a second. This is what happens when a rookie TV analyst gets thrown onto the stage and told to be folksy. I'm always surprised the crew doesn't just start shot-gunning beers every week.

Who hasn't accidentally let one fly in the company of others. Granted, this came on national TV and subsequently blew up on Twitter. But we should be far more appalled at Charles Barkley losing weight. We all know skinny guys are not funny.

Happy Friday the 13th. If you were looking for something to scare you, consider that you will see Tim Tebow on every channel and hear his name everywhere you go. I know, spooky. 

Question on Everybody's Mind: So, what's the story?

Our Take: I understand the confusion because we usually place a story here for you to consider, but Tebow doesn't necessitate one. ESPN had a full hour dedicated to their Tebroner on Thursday, so you can imagine poop is going to get really wacky just a day before the Broncos play the Patriots. 

Hype Meter: 17 out of 5 It's About to Go Downs

We tucked this down here, but really, this is the biggest story on the planet. I fully expect for ESPN to cover Tebow riding in his car to the practice facility like some slow-speed chase coverage. Somewhere, Skip Bayless is putting on some Barry White, filling his wine glass and pressing record on this game.
