One last parting note from Germany (I've been back for a month now). I'm not typically one for potty humor but I can't help but share this with the rest of the world. On our last night in Germany, my partner LJ and I were walking around Berlin. Happy and sad at the same time. As we walked to our hostel we looked up at the name of the street we were passing. (In case you don't know, the German the word for street is strasse.)
And what was the name you ask? It was:
True story. I'll leave it at that.
I never thought I would say this but I think I might be an Eminem fan.
Lebron, Lebron, Lebron...
What can I say besides that I'm nervous about what the new Miami Heat Triumvirate might do to my Lakers next year. (For the record I still think we can take them.) If you haven't read the response by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert to Lebron's exodus than you have missed one of the biggest billionaire temper tantrums in recent memory. He personally guarantees a Cleveland championship before Benedict Arnold (AKA Lebron James) wins one in Miami. Jesse Jackson issued a response to Gilbert's response acusing him of having a slave master mentality. Gilbert responded back to Jackson's response via twitter by personally guaranteeing that he will win an NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award before Jesse Jackson. (This turned out to be untrue and was a posting by someone posing as Dan Gilbert) Which begs an intriguing question for Las Vegas Oddsmakers. Which is more likely to happen White Billionaire Dan Gilbert beating out Jesse Jackson for an NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award or the Lebron-less Cavs winning an NBA championship before Lebron/DWade and Chris Bosh win one in Miami? I think that is a tough bet. But realistically speaking, I think Gilbert is much more likely to win the NAACP Award.
Don't get mad at me, I just speak the truth.
Finally and most importantly I have a new favorite blog. That's right its the Periwinkle Manifesto! So far there has only been one post but I know a lot about blogging. I know a rising star when I see one.
