Well hello there. Today me and the Mrs. watched a little basketball (yes, I realize it’s the Sabbath, but I was still in my church clothes so it should be alright, shouldn’t it). Anyway, as we were watching (and occasionally flipping to ESPN to watch baseball), I had the following thoughts:

I really don’t like the LeBron, but at the same time, I really don’t like Carlos Boozer either. Basically I have no idea which team I should cheer for in the Miami vs. Chicago series (plus, as the Mrs. noted, both LeBron and Carlos aren’t good-looking at all).

I’m really glad that the Lakers lost to the Mavs, but you know, compared to the Heat, Kobe really isn’t that unbearable. From here on out I choose Kobe over LeBron every time. And Kevin Durrant over both of them.

Has there ever been a more depressing Final Four in NBA basketball? I don’t think so. Who am I supposed to cheer for?

If I were to choose my top ten favorite teams in the NBA, none of those four teams would even be close.

I really hate the Yankees.

I think one of the happiest moments in recent memory was hearing that Spanish Fork tied Salem in soccer. I can’t even describe the elation.

Is it bad that other people’s failures in the wide world of sports make me feel so good? (my own answer: probably not).

My favorite players left in the NBA playoffs

Mr. Kevin Durrant

Mr. Dirk Nowitzki

Mr. D-Wade

And that’s all, I don’t even semi- like anybody else that’s left. Except for maybe Mr. Derrick Rose.

My 2B class is the most anti-sports class I have ever had. Honestly, I could ask them what team Kobe Bryant played for and more than half wouldn’t even have a clue. I just wonder how people like that even survive.

I was watching the movie Fiddler on the Roof the other day and I would just like to say that it is amazing. Honestly, that and the Wizard of Oz have to be in a tie for second right behind My Fair Lady for favorite musicals all-time.

Speaking of favorites. Miracle is quickly moving up my favorite all-time sports movies. Right now the list is as follows:

Chariots of Fire



The Natural

Remember the Titans

And that’s about it for today. Good Sabbath to you.

I can't believe it's even hard for you to decide who to cheer for. In honor of our friendship, I vote you cheer for the Bulls. Support me, my home town, and my team. Come on. Nothing would be better than seeing the Heat lose. Right?

Glad the Mrs. will watch sports with you. You never said whether or not she passed that quiz you so lovingly created many years ago...

How did Rudy miss your list? And tell Lauren I'm totally with her...about Lebron and whose-it. But Dirk Nowitzki, hands down, gets the award for being the least good looking player in the NBA. Amazing player granted, but that bone structure...I shudder.
