Yours truly is in the midst of the most ridiculous and eventful one month period of his life. While I continue to adjust to a completely different life on personal and professional levels, I assure you that I will chime in on the crazy madness lately:

  • The Lakers won the title and deservedly so. Let us keep in mind that they did so without ever meeting or beating a healthy Houston Rockets team, a healthy San Antonio Spurs team, a healthy Boston Celtics team, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. So before we declare them to be the best team of the year, remember how the cards fell for them to when the title.
  • We have not seen Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson peak.
  • We have seen Shaq peak.
  • We have not seen Lebron James peak.
  • We have seen Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson peak.
  • The era of the quick point guard is only beginning. I am looking at you, Mr. Longoria.
  • The anticipation and preparation for the summer of 2010 continues to build.
  • The USA Soccer team stunning Spain and advancing is a story that deserves to be followed, written about, and talked about...if only Americans knew enough to do so.
  • Oh yeah, we have the NBA Draft tonight. Expect more madness to follow.

Weather Report

Weather Report:

Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about.

A black congresswoman reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian sounding names. She would prefer some names that reflect African-American culture, such as Chamiqua, Tanisha, Woeisha, Shaqueal, and Jamal. She would also like the weather reports to be broadcast in language that street people can understand because one of the problems in New Orleans is that regular folks couldn't understand the seriousness of the situation due to the racially biased language of the weather report.

I can hear it now: A Houston weatherman says:

"Wazzup, mutha-fukkas! Hehr-i-cane Chamiqua be headin' fo' yo ass like Leroy on a crotch rocket! Bitch be a category fo'! So grab yo' chirren, yo' Ho, be leavin yo crib, and head fo' da nearest guv'ment office fo yo FREE shit!"

Disney Finals

Considering every game of the NBA Finals is broadcast on ABC/ESPN and takes place just miles away from either Disneyland or DisneyWorld, I am surprised that Disney has not jumped all over this dream marketing opportunity aside from just a measly t-shirt.

Sonics Live on...

In 06, Gary Payton hits two Finals game winners and earns a ring in Miami.

In 07, Brent Barry wins a ring with the Spurs.

In 08, Ray Allen destroys the Lakers in route to a ring.

In 09, Rashard Lewis magically stuns the Lakers in route to a ring.

The SUPERSONICS live on as champions...

I could be writing about the tons of storylines coming out of the NBA right now, ranging from the Clippers winning the draft lottery, Lebron and the Cavs failing to win the East, the emergence of the Orlando Magic, The Finals, the loads of topics to choose from with the Lakers...

But instead I am actually excited about the Electronic Entertainment Expo, specifically the release of a pair of trailers for the upcoming Halo games.

Halo 3: ODST

Reach Falls Teaser.
