Playoffs!

Thunder advances.

Clean win against the Mavs.

Maybe next time Dirk.

Whenever I think of KD anymore I can’t help but think of his Doodle Jump/Sprint commercial. I ended up downloading the game because of the commercial but it was just so so. Nothing too special about it. I’m going to go back to playing Draw Something and Hang Something or other.

Thunder vs Lakers will be an awesome upcoming series and Mark and I are very much looking forward to it. It feels like it was just yesterday when we were at the Playoffs games 2 years ago between the Lakers and the Thunder. The Thunder won’t be as easy to beat this year so the Lakers will have to bring all that they’ve got to make it a good series of games.

I’m sure we’ll have our own bets going on when the time comes for them.

We’ll be able to watch the Playoffs from Hong Kong…right? RIGHT?

I’d be happy too if Fisher could get another ring before Kobe.

It is what it is. Good thing he’s not on the Rockets. Phew~!

Spurs advance.

A little love kiss between Tim Duncan and Al Jefferson. An unrequited love met with such a bitter ending.

I’ll still be your bottom bitch Tim!

Hahaha. I’m just kidding. Love the angling on this picture though. Just priceless.

Let’s face it, the Jazz never had a chance and neither did the Mavs.

Still no Championship for the Jazz. Better luck next year.

I have the Spurs beating either the Grizzlies or the Clippers but losing to the Thunder or the Lakers. I’ve been disappointed before by the Spurs. No longer will I bet on them to win anything. I learned my lesson the first time around.

Clippers lead Grizzlies 3-1

I think they call this position the “Saucy Spoon”.

Come on guys, get a hotel room.

But anyways, I am going to puke. Not only do I absolutely despise the Clippers but I actually bet that the Grizzlies would take the Series…UGH. I might be out some moolah! AND IT WAS SUCH A CLOSE GAME YESTERDAY!!!!!!!! UGH…

I was watching during work and it seemed like it just went on forever. I still believe in Marc and OJ! LETS DO THIS SHIT!

Predictions and Hopes for Today’s Game Schedule

-Lakers close out the Nuggets, once and for all.

-76ers prove that the Bulls are nothing without Rose.

-Pacers halt the Magic’s attempt at a comeback.

-Hawks rise above the Celtics with a last minute clinch!

Lebron is KILLING IT!

You know what time it is!

Fuckin Playoff Time!

And of course Lebron is just DOMINATING the competition!

The Knicks are getting pretty frustrated with how things are going…you can kind of tell with all the flagrant fouls and technicals that the Knicks are picking up today.

Lebron’s taken quite a beating today but NOTHING stops the King!

He’s taken a handful of charges like a champ! And he’s made some amazing shots a lot of them while being fouled.

Dwyane Wade has been sliding all over the floor too.

Lebron’s the leading scorer today with 27 points! Playin it like a BOSS!

And yes I am wearing my Lebron jersey today. Why wouldn’t I be? I’ll buy some more and mod them as the playoffs continue.

And the Bulls might just have to play without Rose for the rest of the playoffs.

We’re not sure how bad his injury is but he’s been out for a good portion of the regular season and it might just continue like that through the Playoffs. The Bulls will have no problem annihilating the Sixers but I don’t think they’ll be able to win the Championships without Rose.

Might be an ACL tear which is not good news for Rose or the Bulls.

On another note. Rose sold the most jerseys this year beating out some other superstars. It’s funny because I haven’t seen a Rose jersey on anyone this year.

Iman’s hurt. Ouch. Wade made an awesome shot though…well he’s made several awesome shots.

It’d be awesome if the Heat swept the Knicks but I give the Knicks 1 win in New York but no more than that.

It’s HAMMER TIME!

Do you know what time it is?

That’s right!

It’s HAMMER TIME!

After work Eddie and I went to Korean BBQ and ate our full of delicious meat. Mmmmm….I forgot to take a picture because I was too busy eating. Sorry guys, maybe next time. But I decided I wanted to go hunt for jerseys today so we went off shopping and guess what I found? THIS AWESOME SHIRT! I was like why is this shirt in the NBA section? And that’s when I turned it around and BAM!

BAD BOYS

U CAN’T TOUCH THIS

How awesome is this shirt? It’s from the year the Pistons beat the Lakers in ’89. I guess MC Hammer’s song was really in that time? The song came out in 1990. Yay for cultural references people can still understand! I am going to be KILLING IT in this shirt! Oh~ yeah!

You tube doesn’t have the Family Guy Can’t Touch Me video up anymore so I found one on Spike

http://www.spike.com/video-clips/jnqdhn/family-guy-cant-touch-me

For those of you guys who want to go watch it. Hahaha. Awesome episode.

And guess what else I found?

An old Allen Iverson jersey that fits me perfectly! Score! AND It was cheap. Yay!I’ve been wanting one for some time now! I really wish he would consider coming out of retirement.

COME PLAY FOR THE LAKERS! Please…

And here’s a picture of my Cavaliers Playoff shirt from 08? turned into a dress. Sewn by yours truly. Oddly enough it has Mike Brown on there as coach. Ugh, how the tides have turned…

Please ignore the mess in my bathroom.

Yay Call of Duty! I really should start playing again…

What’s going to happen to the Clippers?

The Clippers were doing so well and now this. Are the Clippers going to be able to replace Chauncey with Randy Foye like they say and still keep the scores up? He only got to play 20 games with the Clippers. It can’t be easy to lose a high scoring, high rebounding and high assisting player when they’re so close to the playoffs. (Well I mean I know we have about 2-3 more months left). But closer than we would have been if it were the real season since there are only so many games being played nowadays.

If you look closer it’s obvious that on most of the losing games that Billups didn’t end up doing too well but is it possible that because of his high scoring games that the Clippers have more wins this year than not? Yes, yes Chris Paul and Blake Griffin help a lot too. Trust me, I know. I’ve heard people scream “CP3!!” more times than I can reasonably count. And I was there when Blake Griffin dunked in Kendrick Perkins face. Poor Perkins…the crazy thing is this was the ONE time he didn’t look pissed…well I mean he always looks a tad bit angry but it didn’t bother him at all. It’s okay Perkins! You look great this season!

Randy Foye’s stats for this season. Not the BEST scores but with such short notice and unexpected turn of events I think the Clippers just need to train hard on their off days and make it work if they want to keep up the wins. To lose to the Cavaliers by 7 points was a pretty big disappointment. Hopefully it’s just a little slump after all that’s happened because it’d be a shame to let such a good team go to waste. Caron Butler really stepped up that game but something happened to DeAndre Jordan that night. 0 points? Not acceptable.

We’ll just have to see tomorrow when the Clippers go up against the 76ers. Let’s see if they can match up to Iguodala, Young, Allen, Williams and Holiday. If they can beat the Sixers who are 18 and 8 I think they have a good chance for the rest of the season. We’ll see what happens to Billups’ contract once this season is over. If everything works out well and he recovers then I don’t see a reason why the Clippers wouldn’t want to keep him. Come on, the Clippers haven’t been THIS good in a long time. (I’m still a Lakers fan though).

“You can’t just put HE MAN in TRANSFORMER’S world. All right?

He wouldn’t be able to get to Cybertron because he lives in Eternia and Eternia is in an entirely different dimension!” -Stewie from Family Guy

Anyways, I just thought I’d throw that in there because what better way to start any speech or essay than with a historic quote! Yeah…I thought it was pretty awesome too. It really speaks to me, you know? Stewie is stopping Brian’s second imagination from coming into play to achieve a whole new level of thought processes and ideas. Stewie is stuck in a paradox in which he envisions the creation of activities and events within the Transformer world but by being so focused on technicalities he is unable to expand beyond what SHOULD be into further exploring the possibilities of what COULD be. Who is Stewie to say that He Man could not learn how to fly or indeed, as Brian puts it, get on a rocket to visit his fellow crime fighting heroes in a new and unexplored part of the dimension? Maybe this new wave of thinking initiated by Brian’s want to be included can lead to the deconstruction of what makes up a super hero in order to rebuild an even greater protagonist that is able to span several aspects of both time and space in relation to their surroundings. By not involving Brian in this children’s activity meant to spurt creativity and mental awareness, Stewie has not only stunted his own potential growth but also the potential growth that could have developed through such interactions.

Am I being serious? Who knows…Maybe this should blog should be called the “Ramblings of an English Major” but then I don’t think anyone would read it. *shrug*

Anyways, my mother had her friends over last night and no it was not to watch the Super Bowl. Although that would have been really cool if they WERE here to watch it. But I don’t know if any of the TVs in the house work too well. I haven’t watched TV in forever! But, getting back to the point, one of her friends brought some cookies for me! They’re actually pretty good. And who couldn’t love cookies tied in Lakers colors. Ugh Lakers…I’ll talk about that later…

Actually, I’m going to talk about it now. I even wore my “Boston Sucks” shirt today…but I guess it wasn’t enough to help them…

Mike Brown got suspended for a game for his little fiasco during the Jazz game, maybe that will makes things better. We can only hope right? I knew it was going to be a good game when I saw they’d be playing the 76ers but I didn’t want them to lose… I had class when the game was on so I had to keep up with the play by plays that I could get on my phone. They were so close the entire game. The whole time I was on it they were only 1-3 points apart. The game stats aren’t even that impressive. This has to be one of Iguodala’s lower scoring games AND WE STILL LOST. But in all fairness it was a low scoring game in general for everyone. Ugh…There were some other good games tonight. Knicks beat the Jazz and the Clippers had a very close game with the Magic but ended up coming ahead by 5 points. The Thunder vs Trailblazers game has been pretty intense too. It’s still anyone’s game. But you have my support KD! You can do this! But KD come on…FGM-A 9-17 is not okay. We’ll see how it ends up panning out later on. And before I move on to another topic…what was with the Heat’s jersey last night?

Do we really need 5 colors on a jersey? Let alone an asymmetrical design? AND they’re selling them on NBA.com. Here’s what the stock photo looks like:

Can you say ‘EW’?

1. The number and writing on the front and back are off center.

2. The colors include: Red, Black, White, Pink and Orange. It’s like a defective unicorn threw up on a blank sports jersey. What do the last two colors have to do with the heat? Degrees of colors leading up to how hot a flame gets? Makes for a dramatic picture that’s for sure.

3. Pink really? Good luck trying to sell these to your target market.

4. What is with the font on the front? I know teams can pick or choose when they want to put the city name and the team’s name but this looks like something out of Ken’s Spring Catalogue while he shops for clothes while Barbie is out being an independent woman.

5. Is it just me or did Adidas purposely make it look sort of like a soccer jersey? Can someone say Product Placement?

6. What happened to simplicity? Whoever designed this jersey has either been transferred over from another sports department or the recession along with the lockout has really been hitting both Adidas and the NBA so hard that they’ve outsourced their work to interns who are forced to scribble jersey ideas in between coffee runs for the rest of the office. (*Intern idea thanks to Mark, credit where credit is due*)

Oh well. I can just buy an All Star Jersey (which also lacks any new creative ingenuity) but I guess some things really can’t be helped. I’ll complain about it another time I guess. OH BUT those new Black on Black jerseys that have been coming out are pretty sweet. I’ll write my review about them next time. Don’t want to overload anyone with too much new sensory information.

And before I forget, Amare’s brother was killed in a car accident this morning so keep him in your thoughts? I guess it’s good the Knicks won a game today then right?

Moving onto a new topic, I ordered all my transcripts so I can transfer school starting next fall. Everything seemed to work out smooth so hopefully it will just stay that way. Yay for being productive! We also did some explication work in class today. There were some pretty good lines from Richard III┬áto be honest. The class helped a lot because I have an explication due tomorrow on Madame Bovary. It’ll be a piece of cake though. My other class went well too. I ended up getting an A on the paper I had written on Plato and Aristotle which I’m happy about and I managed to pay attention in class while checking NBA score updates on my phone. Yay for multitasking!

But enough about school…it’s car time! My bestest buddy Jack and I always swap pictures of cars that we see throughout the day and guess what he sent me today? It has to be only my 3rd favorite car at this point in time…that’s right! You guessed it! A Volvo 1800S! (Actually my favorite is a Volvo p1800 but it’s close enough). And it’s from 1967 too…*drool*

God look at it! It’s in PRISTINE condition too! This is BY FAR the only cool car Volvo has ever made or will ever make. The person who owns this car has obviously taken care of it like it’s their own kid. Makes me so happy to see vintage cars in top shape. It gives me hope! We’re not dying out…soon you can see me in one of these. True I’ll have to get used to the 4 cylinder engine and the manual transmission but it’s all worth it for a beauty like this one.

What did Roger Moore drive on “The Saint” before he ever became James Bond? One of these bad boys, that’s right. In the TV Series he was seen sporting this bad ass baby. Forget about the Aston Martin DB5, it’s all about the 1800S! (*And again photo credits to Jack, I’m going to miss you!!*)

And while I’m on the subject, Jack, I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip! If you see any strange and/or exotic cars you know that I expect pictures when you get back! Don’t die!! I won’t miss the Vegan food but I sure as hell will miss you! And our amazing conversations about the aesthetic values of cars. Have fun!!

Now that I have spent a substantial part of my night writing and completing this blog entry, I think it’s time for me to actually attend to things that desperately need my attention. Bye until next time!
