No ring ma but look what else I got?!

I was watching TNT last night at the Harbor Pub when Charles Barkley got DOUSED with champagne.

And for those of you who missed it, here it is:

After a while Kenny just refused to sit down and he eventually just ran off stage. I’d be scared if I was him too. I can only imagine what Charles did to him afterwords.

And I didn’t think Jordan Hill would be playing with his THIRD DEGREE FELONY ASSAULT on his girlfriend.

I guess it is what it is…he not only supposedly hit her but threw her up against a wall and choked her too. Scary.

I was surprised by the 76ers win and greatly disappointed by the Celtics last minute win against the Hawks.

Oh but…seriously? Emmy? What the fuck is a “Sports Emmy”? I am so confused…

Good for you Charles!

And I know the Lakers will whip the Nuggets. Kobe is having a great scoring game so I’m not too worried.

Gasols Double Triple!

Gasol’s made like five 3 pointers this season and 2 of them were JUST NOW, back to back during the Mavs vs Lakers Overtime!

Two 3 pointers within 40 seconds of each other!

FUCK YEAH!

Kobe out. Lakers bench in.

You want to know what sucks about living in Hawaii? All the games are on early in the AM. I woke up to the Heat already having beaten the Knicks. UGH.

You think a girl could catch a break and watch some basketball…

but I’m up for the Mavericks vs Lakers game and thank god!

I’m just SO happy the Lakers can keep up the points with Kobe having been out for 5 games because of his shin.

I mean the Lakers have won almost all the games they’ve played without Kobe. Hopefully this game against the Mavs will be straight win #4.

The Mavs swept the Lakers last year during the playoffs so this win would be just that much more sweet!

The worst NBA bench in the league but they’ve been giving it their all.

And some great fakes by Kidd.

And I’m glad the Heat finally broke through with a win against the Knicks.

Especially since Carmelo made 42 points today. He’s had a lot of high scoring games lately.

The Knicks would’ve had the game today since their shooting percentage was only slightly lower than the Heat AND they had a higher 3 point shooting percentage but again what kills it most times is the ability to keep up a decent free throw percentage.

Some highlights for you guys who were like me and missed the game.

And Gundy’s rant of Flopping. Shumpert just SHOVED Jones! And Carmelo did the same thing to Lebron.

Back to the Lakers, if the Mavericks lose today then it’ll be a 3 way tie for 6th, 7th and 8th place. They really need to make a last effort push in order to win these final games before the playoffs. They have a couple days before their last game so it’ll give them some time to practice before they have to start the playoffs.

I just don’t know how it’s a 1 point game at this point because the shooting percentages for the Lakers are horrible.

Mavericks Shooting Percentages

FGM-A = 47.9%
3PM-A = 60.0%
FTM-A = 90.9%

compared to the Lakers

Lakers Shooting Percentages

FGM-A = 42.3%
3PM-A = 30.8%
FTM-A =  78.3%

 Dirk has been having a hard time today though, as it stands right now he’s shooting 7 for 22 and Bynum is 8 for 21. Sessions is killing it though!

But I can’t have a blog without it being somewhat informative so here it is!

We all know Kobe has been out because of his left shin injury from that game against the Hornets but here’s some more information about the injury.

It’s actually called TENOSYNOVITIS. 

“Tenosynovitis is inflammation of the lining of the sheath that surrounds a tendon (the cord that joins muscle to bone). The synovium is a lining of the protective sheath that covers tendons. Tenosynovitis is inflammation of this sheath.”

It occurs most commonly in the hands, wrist and feet but can also occur wherever there is  a tendon sheath.

Why does this injury affect Kobe and why is he out?

Well, this not only causes difficulty in the movement of joints but it also causes redness, swelling and pain in the joint area. It’s better to rest Kobe for the playoffs rather than to risk injuring him any further. Any cuts in the area might also lead to infection which would require immediate surgery.

The only thing Kobe and the Lakers need to watch out for is that with treatment recovery should not be a problem but if the injury and swelling was due to an overuse of the joint and the product of a repeated activity there is a chance that Tenosynovitis will come back which is not good news.

Tied game with 1.5 seconds left.

OVERTIME!

THANK GOD DIRK IS GETTING OLD! FUCK YEAH! HE’S MISSED 17 SHOTS!

“The only people who are unhappy about this is the 40 people who have to come in in about 4 hours to change the floor for the Kings game today”.

Hahahahaha.

LOS ANGELES LAKERS FOREVER! FUCK THE CLIPPERS!

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA BUT it only took my most hated team to be defeated by my home team to get me to write again!

That’s right! I was at the last Clippers vs Lakers game and guess what bitches?!

LAKERS WON! Because they are THE SHIT!

Who cares if we were leading by 14 or just 1 point. The fact of the matter is that we were leading because that’s what we do.

You ask and the Lakers deliver!

I need to order me a custom Ramon Sessions jersey! FUCK THIS GAME WAS TENSE!

Thank God I had some loyal Lakers fans by my side to cheer everyone on!

Kobe and Bynum KILLED IT TONIGHT! And I am SO proud of my Ramon Sessions! We all forgive you for your missed free throw shot…some of us even saw it coming BUT ALL IS FORGIVEN!

I am getting a Sessions jersey THIS INSTANT!

Lakers have got the best 2 out of 3 against the Clippers. The last game I went to was the first of the three so I’m glad to see the Lakers close the deal on this! What was the number one business motto that everyone should remember?

ABC! Always be closing! That’s right bitches!

We closed on the mother fuckin Clippers!

And how many 3 pointers did CP3 make? Oh…wait just 1. FAIL.

But Caron Butler stepped up his game tonight! He was on fire! Leading scorer for the Clippers tonight with 28 points!

There were some messy ass plays with some certain people missing slam dunks…but the Lakers won and that is all that really matters.

Bynum had 36 and Bryant had 31. Victory is so…so sweet when it’s against a wannabe team trying to take over LA. Get the fuck out of Staples Center and LA because this is OUR TOWN. There’s only room for ONE show and we all know who I’m talking about!

Our shooting percentages were all above the Clippers but that’s normal. Nothing surprising about that there. Wait…did you REALLY think the Clippers would have 7 straight wins? I think not.

Full highlights of tonight’s game. I love being a Lakers fan…it’s days like this where Kobe is 13 for 19 that make going to games SO worth it!

Who cares if Blake Griffin dunked over Pau Gasol. Dunking does not get you far in life. We can only see so many highlights of the same shit every night. That was so 2 years ago.

Does this idiot even know what “posterizes” means?

Definition: to print an image using only a few shades of gray, characteristic of posters

So…let me get this straight. Blake Griffin printed a gray image of Pau Gasol? on Pau Gasol?

RETARD OF THE DAY!

There were some HORRIBLE calls tonight too. A fucking technical on Sessions? for what?

And don’t you mean a foul on Kobe and not Ron Artest who was no where near ANYTHING! Refs are stupid as shit.

But it didn’t end up mattering because the Lakers are King.

I don’t know if I’d drop that kind of dough for an Italia

The Black Masked Mamba just paid for this 458 Italia with one check.

It’s around $329,000.

Man if I had that kind of cash this is NOT the car I would be getting. I guess I’ve never been too crazy for Ferrari’s. To each his own right? Plus if I’m paying 6 digits I want a little more than a V8…

I mean Kobe has a deal with Mercedes so I would’ve gone with that something in that field but I’m biased about that so it can’t be helped.

But jesus christ! This car is supposed to retail for $230,000…someone got the wool pulled over his eyes or maybe he wore his mask to the dealership and all the numbers were skewed at an angle…whatever it is I would not pay another $100k for…what? Options? Hahahaha.

Weird. I guess the next time I see one of these I’ll know who’s behind the wheel. (A tool).

But Kobe already had a Ferrari F430 and the 458 Italia replaced that model so I guess it only fits that he HAS to have both.

The 459 Italia was released in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The engine has won multiple awards such as the Best Performance Engine in 2011 and it also gets the most power per liter for a naturally aspirated production car engine.

To be honest I don’t even want to write about the specifics of the car because it doesn’t interest me that much. What? I’m a German car girl. Hahaha. It is what it is.

But do you know what I will write about? The recalls they had for the 458 Italia in 2010.

Why were the being recalled? Because they were spontaneously catching on fire. HAHAHAHA.

What was the problem?

Apparently the adhesive that attaches the heat shield under the rear fenders would become flammable at high temperatures. And seeing how a lot of Ferrari owners are in California or high climate areas that is NOT a good thing. They ended up replacing the adhesive with rivets. What a sad waste of a car right?

Haha. How scary would that be? You go to Rodeo Drive for some shopping and you come back and your Ferrari has caught on fire. Lolz.

I’m a fat kid…on the inside

Thank god it doesn’t show on the outside! Hahaha.

I usually write about basketball and I probably will again after this post but I haven’t written down what I’ve been doing with my life, just what other people have been doing with theirs so here goes!

My voice is still completely gone though…

Friday I had a day off so I spent it with…Phoebe! We had some QUALITY girl time and we got to talk about a lot of things. She hasn’t really explored LA too much yet so I decided to show her around so I drove basically EVERYWHERE from 4 o’clock on out. I took her to Wackos and it literally BLEW her mind. Didn’t spend TOO much time there because I was hungry so we went to go eat at Umami Burger. FUCK IT WAS GOOD! Well…it’s ALWAYS good. I got to see all the usual people and Scott came in to work while we were eating too!

What did I have to eat…A something Poutine Burger? I don’t know what it was but it was delicious!


Mushrooms + Cheese + Beef Patty + ON A BED OF FUCKING FRIES.
Can I get another one please?
And then Scott brought out this CRAZY dessert!

Two layers of thin oatmeal cookies that were like deep fried with caramel sauce and ice cream on top. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! FUCK it was good…

And then I drove down Laurel Canyon all the way to Studio City which was pretty nice. I bought a new black dress but no pictures yet…sorry. Walked around, talked some more.

Then I drove back to my place and we swapped some clothes, talked, tried to watch some stuff but didn’t really have a chance to because we were talking so much. All in all it was an AWESOME day! It was my first time hanging out with Phoebe but it felt like we had been friends forever! I’m sad it’s not going to happen more often…with me moving and everything. I just hope everyone comes to visit me sometime.

Saturday I went to work. It was busy but I was working a private party so it wasn’t bad at all. I had some…Fat C**** that attended and DIDN’T tip but fuck her.

And then I went out with Setsu. I had a bunch of stuff to give her since I’m moving so it made for a nice opportunity to hang out and talk like old times. I think we’ve known each other … god I don’t even know how many years it’s been. It’s been a LONG time, that’s for sure.

We went to eat Pho because we had both been craving it so it was AWESOME! Syracuse losing wasn’t awesome but I got over it. (No I didn’t). Apparently Amy’s parents drove 4 hours to NC to watch the Kansas game. That’s hardcore. I have faith that they’ll win. Not even sweating it.

After that we went to this place called Yellow House near my house. It’s literally less than a mile from my house and I’ve never been there. UGH…but there’s a good reason why. I hate rude servers. COME ON! I’M FUCKING PAY YOU TO WORK, DON’T TALK BACK TO ME!

Gross. This is what it looks like anyways.

Or the Inside/Outside anyways. The ACTUAL outside is a big yellow house. I’m sorry but it looks gay as fuck. I call it like I see it.

The nurse told me not to have any soda, caffeine, dairy or any of that good stuff but I saw an Almond Roca Latte on the menu so I couldn’t resist! Too bad it sucked donkey balls. It tasted like that stuff you make by adding those coffee packets they have at hotel rooms with hot water, like watered down shit. It was gross. Sorry Setsu. She ended up getting a Shaved Ice with Fruit, which also looked disgusting…ugh fruit. Whoever thought ice + condensed milk + fruit + strawberry ice cream + fruity pebbles was a good idea should be hung.

And they also had smores on the menu so I thought, hey why not?

LOOK WHAT THEY BROUGHT ME!

WHAT? AM I OUT IN THE FOREST? I don’t want to make my own god damn smores AND pay for it! Who do these people think I am? REALLY?

BULLSHIT!

Oh and you know what else happened?

I asked the server for a plate and instead of saying okay do you know what he says?

“Oh that doesn’t come with a plate”.

NO SHIT IT DOESN’T COME WITH A PLATE!

EVEN WHEN YOU’RE OUT CAMPING YOU GET A FUCKIN PAPER PLATE. JESUS CHRIST! WHAT AM I AN ANIMAL? I’M JUST SUPPOSED TO SHOVE IT IN MY MOUTH WHEN IT’S READY AND EAT IT LIKE A SQUIRREL WHO JUST HAS TO STUFF IT IN ITS CHEEK UNTIL LATER? FUCK YOU.

BRING ME A GOD DAMN MOTHAFUCKIN PLATE.

I am NEVER going there again…I’m sticking to my normal cafes.

Setsu and I talked a lot too which was nice. I’m glad I was able to get some more stuff out of my room. It’s so hard to clean! … But I’m getting there…slowly but surely.

Today I just went to work and it was busy as fuck. It’s raining in LA today so once people got seated they just REFUSED to leave…I had people waiting over an hour for a table. Oh well. It is what it is. As long as we made some bank tip today…I’m good. I was also talking with a coworker about going to the Lakers @ Clippers game but it’s so expensive. Ugh…it WOULD be nice to go to one more game this season before I leave and before the playoffs… Mark and I should be back for the Playoffs. Not too sure what’s happening this year because we’re going to Hong Kong but I’m sure we’ll figure something out…

Yay for yearly traditions! Woo! OH YEAH PLAYOFF GAMES HERE I COME!

I’ll figure out if we’re going or not. I still have some time.

Oh and before I end this entry…look what I got for my cousin!

I bought him a Nike JUST DO IT shirt and a hat from the Pop Up Shop at work. Pretty neat right? He’s going to be the coolest kid in 6th grade! Hahaha.

AH THE THUNDER BEAT THE HEAT! I don’t know if I should be happy or sad…

That’s racist as hell!

I thought I was too tired to write a blog entry today but then I saw this and it’s one thing to nickname Kobe the “Black Mamba” but it’s a WHOLE nother thing if you nickname Jeremy Lin as the “Yellow Mamba”…Really people? Is that okay?

Linsanity. Fine.

Linwhatever. Fine.

YELLOW MAMBA? REALLY? or should I say RI-RI? HARROO!

UGH. I’m okay with Fortune Cookies in my ice cream but this is a little weird…I mean what would Pau Gasol be? The Pale Mamba? Spanish Mamba? Like…what?

I was looking up Black Mamba shirts on ebay to see if there were any cute shirts for my cousin when I came across this. And so I just decided to look up Jeremy Lin shirts on ebay and I got back the WEIRDEST THINGS EVER!

Uh…yeah no.

I don’t even want to look any more.

Knicks finally won a game today. BUT Jeremy Lin had 7 TURNOVERS! SEVEN…Really? Really? But do you know who killed it today? Fuckin Tyson Chandler! 17 rebounds! Holy Shit! The Knicks really do need to work on their free throws though…J.R. Smith is adjusting pretty well save the excessive amounts of personal fouls but that’s nothing new…

Highlights from tonight’s game:

AND OMG SYRACUSE LOST! AHHHHHHHHHH…..COME ON KANSAS!

I was eating Pho tonight watching the game between Ohio State and Syracuse and I was so sad that they lost! UGH! But the Pho made it all better…hahaha

Syracuse was missing those free throws too…but not as many as Ohio State…they made about 31 out of 42 of their free throws….AND STILL THEY WON? Fail.

It sucks because Syracuse had a better shooting percentage overall tonight. Not enough rebounds and too many personal fouls.  A lot of bad calls too. UGH.

Dion Waiters FAIL.

Lakers Girls > Clippers Spirits

I was talking to Alex about this yesterday and you know what? It’s true. The Lakers girls are SO much hotter AND prettier than the Clipper Spirits.

My opinion doesn’t matter because I’m a girl? Well let me tell you something…Whenever I go to a Lakers game and the Laker girls come on I can’t help but stare. People I go to games with have noticed. You can ask them. What, some of them are hot. I’m not going to lie. But whenever I’m at a Clippers game I feel like I’m at Amateur night at Hooters. Just pass me the chicken wings and get out of my face. Even when they’re out before the game and taking pictures with everyone I’m just so surprised at how much uglier they are in person. Come on, we live in LA…there are SO many hot girls willing to fuck whoever it takes to get this job or ANY job for that matter and you pick THESE girls? COME ON! It’s not like we’re at the Orlando Disneyland THIS IS LA WE’RE TALKING ABOUT!

It’s like someone took all the beauty school drop outs and thought it would be a good idea to just put them all together so they can dance for people. This isn’t a strip club! I could find more fit and attractive dancers in the shadiest of night clubs in LA. Seriously, I swear I’ve seen some of these broads on RuPaul’s Drag race! Hell I think Raven would make a better Clippers cheerleader than half of these girls… I do NOT want girls who look like men to be dancing during timeouts or half times. Hell naw. It’s different if you’re a guy and you just want to get some. Fine, put a paper bag over their head. THAT’S a different story. I’m talking about girls who are supposed to motivate the sports fans into buying merchandise, coming to games and coming early to see them and subsequently spending more money. If THIS is what I have to look forward to by coming early…shit I might as well stay at home.

The outfits they wear are not at all flattering either.

Let’s ALL do the uni-boob and gut stomach look! YEAH! THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!

Or the EVER fashionable One Sleeve show as little as possible and still look pug ugly outfits! Yay!

The infamous ghetto look.

Or everyone’s favorite view from behind…

I mean hell! Even Paula Abdul was a Lakers girl!

Lakers Girls keeping it hot since before the 80s. That’s right!

 Yes this is what I think about when I’m at home sick. Hot Lakers girls…Hahahaha.

So let’s just keep it at this:

And this:

And not this:

Oh who’s lost 3 games in a row? That’s right THE CLIPPERS!

New LA Team MY ASS!

Hands too close to the crotch bro. Haha.

It sucks having a cold and losing my voice but do you know what IS awesome? The Clippers dropping down to 6th in the Western Conference.

They’ve already lost 9 out of 15 games this month. Ouch.

Chris Paul even lost at his first game home in New Orleans since the trade. That must be painful.

The Hornets had 20 turnovers to the Clippers 11 but what saved them was their high shooting percentages. The Hornets had 5 team members droppin down double digits to the Clippers measly 3. Chris Paul was shooting 5 out of 14 yesterday AND he had 5 personal fouls. Nick Young played more minutes last night at around 30 minutes but he still has a lot to work on. Young made 3 rebounds, 7 points but also had 3 personal fouls and 3 turnovers. Too bad the Clippers don’t have anyone else to use as a starter. Oh well. Not my problem.

But let’s talk about Chris Kaman! He was on FIRE last night against his old teammate! 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 block shots and 20 points! He did have 7 turnovers though which he needs to work on.

Blake the highlight Griffin made some slam dunks like normal but I doubt that’s going to get the Clippers very far. One thing it WILL help is the Obese children of America…hmmm $100 to help fight obesity. How would they use that money anyways? Oh yeah…just use that money to pay the people up top and just stop the kids from eating. SMART PLAN! Haha. I’m just jokin. He does donate money but again, THAT does not make him a GREAT player. There were some Clippers in where I work. Too bad I didn’t care enough to do anything about it.

Did I mention Samuel L Jackson was the Guest PA announcer for last night’s game? Hahaha! We should have Jack do all of the PAs for the Lakers!

And AGAIN, CP3 has been performing at 1/5th of his normal capacity. Hahaha. Maybe I should change it to CP0.20! Woo! Randy Foye didn’t help either last night by attempting to shoot 8 3 pointers and only making 1 of them. FAIL. The Clippers shooting percentages have been HORRIBLE lately. Averaging in the mid 30% percentile for Field Goals Made compared to Attempted is really hitting them hard. And Griffin’s been missing way too many easy points by throwing more air balls.

6th ring before Kobe?

Possibly.

I’m glad Fisher will be with the Thunder and not the Rockets. I can keep an eye on him while I make sure Durant and Westbrook are doing well. Mark said I sound like a mom…I guess I do sometimes huh?

Wouldn’t it be a trip if Fisher got his next ring before Kobe did? Hahaha. I’d LOVE to see that. Yes I love the Lakers but Fisher was my favorite player so I’ll support him wherever he goes. I can wear my OKC Fisher jersey over my Lakers one. Hahaha.

The new number he picked is his age…37. How cute. Awww! My children are all grown up now!

Maybe I SHOULD go to that Lakers vs Thunders game coming up…hmmmm

Let’s see what my paycheck says. Well. I guess I could since I finished school and what not but I always feel awkward going to games where I like both teams. I can’t be myself. I rather stick to a Clippers vs Thunder game. UGH I WENT TO ONE EARLIER THIS SEASON AND THE THUNDER LOST! No one talked shit to me that time though.

Overall…(most times) Clippers fans are nicer than Lakers fans. Except for that one time last week when I went to go see Josh Smith and TMac play. How could you hit on me after you talk smack to me all game long? Forget you. Hahaha.

Yay Fisher! I am so happy for you!

Well the Thunder BETTER beat the Clippers tonight!

What? Foye’s dropping points? Man…that’s whack.
