Good Idea Bad Idea (Featuring Phil and Stan)

Did you ever watch Animaniacs?  You know Yakko, Wakko, and Dot? If not, it was a brilliant show that appealed to both kids and and their parents.  In fact take a break right now, type “Animaniacs” into youtube and enjoy some brilliant cartoon madness. Anyway the show used to have a segment called “Good Idea, Bad Idea,” and would (perhaps unsurprisingly) have a good idea, followed by a bad one. I know, who would have thought!  For example one segment said “good idea: tossing a penny into a fountain. Bad Idea: tossing your cousin Penny into a fountain.”

Now you might be asking yourself, what the hell is this guy’s point?  Well smart-ass, other then spreading the word about a great cartoon, I though this applied well to Stan Van Gundy, and Phil Jackson. Lets explore.
