Today's Best Thing comes courtesy of our crosstown rivals, and an interview Willamette Week's Matthew Singer did with Trail Blazer Robin Lopez. The whole thing pretty much makes me want to hug everyone around me, but here's the best part:
What are your top three favorite wizards?
Gandalf’s definitely on the list. Trying to pick my favorite Harry Potter wizard, I can easily go with Dumbledore. I always liked Professor Lupin. I’ll put him on the list. [A day after the interview, Lopez asked via his publicist to take Lupin off his list and replace him with Hermione Granger.]
That parenthetical is the best sentence I have ever read. AND I HAVE READ A LOT OF SENTENCES. Go read the whole piece.
