Kobe Bryant and Laker fans will say that it was inevitable from the beginning of the season. They just might be right. Looking back at the season and the players, the youthful Lakers might not be what one would expect to see in the NBA finals. Outside of Kobe and Fisher there really isn’t massive experience on the Lakers bench. Unless you consider Phil Jackson (one of the greatest coaches of the game). This is the first year since he got to Los Angeles that Jackson hasn’t been getting hyped, and perhaps that allowed him to relax a little an Zen up the Lakers.

The Lakers are back in the NBA Finals to face… likely the Boston Celtics in an old-school NBA Finals. It seems like everything is going 80s retro these days, so why not the NBA. While I certainly can do without the music of the 80s, I’m very interested in an 80s style NBA Finals. I’m sure there are going to be cries in Boston of “Beat LA” during game 7 (Yes, Detroit is likely taking this one back to Boston).

It’s going to be classic East Coast v West Coast. Biggie v Tupac. Uptight Bostonians v stoned Angelians. Clam Chowder v Avocado Salads. William Shatner v Jack Nicholson. Expect sales to go down at Boston Markets across Southern California.

I was reading this article about the Dumb Dolphins today. I could help but laugh. First, when Tony Soprano… err, Sparano babbled forth his incoherent gibberish, I laughed. You’ll really have to read the article to see what I’m talking about. I couldn’t make any sense of it. The fact that Jason Cole, from Yahoo!, could make sense of it was amazing. Hats off too him!

Somehow, the Dullfins are making a great case for getting Jason Taylor less money… Well, at least that’s what Jason Cole is thinking. I’m sure there are others who are thinking that in the industry as well. The only problem is that Jason Taylor is exactly what the NFL and teams need. Rather than hiring thugs like some other teams, any team that picks up Jason Taylor will benefit tremendously.

Will Taylor go for less because of the intelligence lacking comments from the Dullfins? Not likely. Any team will benefit greatly from picking up Taylor. He’s worth more money because he’s not just a player in a football game. He’s a player in the game of the NFL.

The NFL is not only about football. It’s about honor, reputation, community, sportsmanship, and character. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to look no further than New Orleans two seasons ago.

Hillary announced that she plans to help finance the national debt with her personal funds, much like she’s financed her successful Presidential campaign! I’m not sure this is really the best idea, but the more I think about it… This is sounding pretty good. If she cares about our country this much, let her spend the money. Hillary 2008!

On Earth Day, I was able to get a brief moment with George Bush to Interview him about his new environmental plan. I’ll be airing it on my Radio Show tomorrow on BlogTalkRadio.com. Of course, the show is one hour long and the interview was only about 2 1/2 minutes, so I need to make sure that I have something else on the show. But I really do have an Interview with George Bush about his environmental plan that you don’t want to miss.

Bruce Vilanch watched the video where Kobe Bryant jumps over an Aston Martin. He figured that he could do the same thing with his new Gravity Defyer Shoes

A friend of mine sent me this from BootLeg Betty.

I was joking around about being a redneck model for a new pair of binoculars by Spion. I’ve got my fishing jacket. I’ve got my red Snap-on baseball cap. I’ve got my… Ladybug?

Ladybugs Love Me

I’ve been a HUGE fan of LOL Cat for a loooooooong time. I post them on people’s Myspace profiles and vote regularly. Today, my friend Ken dropped off page 90 of the latest SkyMall, and I had to make my own LOL Cat!!! And it ends up being a Ceiling cat at that!

It isn’t often that I recommend a movie to people. After all, in my opinion, most movies aren’t good. Yet, I’m still paying 10 bucks to go see them every week, go figure.

Anyway, Run Fat Boy Run is a perfect movie for any of the following people to see:

  • Men who ever dated someone that you just could decide if she was the right one
  • Women who ever dated the guy who just couldn’t decide if you were the right one

The above includes just about everyone in the world, but here are more people who should go see Run Fat Boy Run:

  • Dead beat/loser fathers – So you can see what it takes to win your family back
  • Co-parents of the dead beat/loser father – So you can see what someone who is really committed to your family does to win you back
  • People who like to laugh… A LOT!!!
  • People who like to cry… a little
  • People who like to watch movies with real life scenarios that aren’t overacted

I really enjoyed this film. I was laughing throughout, save a couple of times when tears welled up in my eyes. It is a superb film and well worth the money at the theater. And don’t forget to take the woman that you haven’t been able to make your mind up about for the last five years either! That adds value to the experience of this film 😀

View the trailer for Run Fat Boy Run.

Ron Paul is EVOL

In a move that’s straight out of the “DOH!” files, Ron Paul’s minions have been showering the Internet (and freeway overpasses) with root of all EVOL. Dana Carvey Church LadyThe idea was to share the “love” of Ron Paul’s R”evol”ution.I’m sure the intentions were good by his campaigners. But you know what they say about good intentions: The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. Wait! Hell also happens to be where EVOL comes from now.

Isn’t that special? 😛
