So, if it's okay with my supervisors--I will have to check--I'd like to take a part-time job at a restaurant in Dallas, and preferably one that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban frequents. Actually, come to think of it, it doesn't even have to be one he frequents; just one he visits from time to time. I mean, if I could get even one tip every, say, three months like the one he left at the NBA Finals after-party Sunday when the Mavericks won the championship, I'd be a very happy man.

Of course, I'm not sure how often he's going to order a three-and-a-half-foot-tall bottle of champagne that costs $90,000. But if he just does it twice a year, and I'm there to bring it to him, that's very nice supplemental swag. Yes, I'd have to fly to Dallas every weekend--I'd probably only be able to work weekends--but one of those $20,000 tips would more than take care of flight expenses with plenty left over. Seriously though, congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks. It was great to see the franchise win its first NBA title. It was great to see Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd win their first titles after being in the league for 13 and 17 years, respectively. And, finally, I'd like to congratulate Mark Cuban's wait staff from Monday night. It's the very definition of being in the right place at the right time.
