I am watching the NBA finals to see if the next "great white hope "of basketball can get my favorite owner in all of sports a ring. (Dude can really ball. But Larry Bird? Come on now.)He called D Wade and King James ignorant for making fun of his illness, so this is not only great basketball but it's personal as well. I love it!
To the LeBron haters out there (I am talking to you, Cleveland) get over it. He is young, rich, and reviving interest in the NBA. Win or lose he will still be living large on South Beach and you will still be stuck in (pick your city) trying to make ends meet. (A six toe controversy? Are you serious?!)
Staying with sports; I see that Mike Tyson was inducted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Congrats Mike, did they serve Chianti at the reception in honor of your little ep with Evander Holyfield? Sorry, that was a low blow, but I just couldn't resist. Mike, in spite of your off court issues, you deserve to be in the hall. Just keep working on your acting skills. I sense a Hangover III coming.
Now the man who doesn't deserve to be there is Sylvester Stallone. He never stepped foot in a real boxing ring yet he is going into the Boxing Hall of Fame. Somehow that doesn't seem right. Memo to everyone in A-merry-ca, "Rocky" was a movie.
It's a disgrace that there is a statue of Rocky here in my hometown, and there is none for a real hometown champion who actually was the heavy weight champion of the world.
"Smokin Joe", you are a better man that I am. I would have demanded a statue the day they put up that joke of a statue to a fictional boxer in South Philly. They moved it to the Art Museum (right next to the steps Rocky ran up in the movie), but it's just as repulsive and offensive to me as it always was.
Finally, I am going to go ahead and make this an all sports post. Can one of you ladies who are regulars on this blog please reach out to Nogami Marshall. Seems girlfriend was arrested again for violating the terms of a stay away order. Here is the deal on stay away and protection from abuse orders: men aren't allowed to violate them, and neither can the members of the fairer sex. You will be arrested, and rightfully so.
Someone should tell Nogami that no one is worth losing her freedom over. Yeah I know, sometimes these dudes can be really trifling, but you already went Bobby Flay on him once, let it go.
Now back to the game.....
