The end of an era...

This past weekend, my trusty companion (SpchlEd), ended his life. As i was driving southbound down the 5 freeway, he slowly began to lose power. Not wanting to be stranded/ helpless on the freeway, I tried to push him as far as he would go. After a few pop, clicks, rattles, and a few other noises a car SHOULDN'T make, the steering and brakes went out. I proceeded to coast off the El Toro exit and find a safe place to park.


You served me well ol' buddy. I'm sorry things had to turn out this way. You had plenty of life in you still, if only I had treated you right. Not only are you gone, I now no longer have means to travel around The Bubble... Great.




You were my first car,
you were my only car.
You are gone but will not be forgotten
Enjoy the junkyard.

May your mechanical guts and paper thin sheet metal 
rest in peace...

Laziest cops ever...

So last night in Baltimore, a kid jumps on the field and runs around aimlessly, probably expecting to be tackled by the on-field cops/ security immediately. Instead, he runs around for two minutes while the Baltimore PD slowly walk in his general direction. After one foiled attempt to jump back into the stands, he runs for a little bit more until the home plate ump walks towards him and tells him to knock it off. He freezes and lets the 5-0 grab him...




Even though he got arrested, it was the best "fan on the field" run I've ever seen...

TRON F***ing LEGACY...



Im literally counting down the days until this movie comes out... Or more importantly, im waiting until the soundtrack for this movie to come out. It's done by the one and only Daft Punk and it's gonna be pretty epic... I think the electro, mechanical style that DP will pump into this will make it one of the most memorable movies of the year.



Tron: Legacy- December 17, 2010

Tron: Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk- November 23, 2010

Heres a sneak peek at some of the tracks... Peep it.

Oh my, how things have changed...

Here are the newest lines from Vegas concerning the 2011 NBA Champions...

Miami (25-to-1) now the 7-to-5 favorite.
Los Angeles Lakers (7-to-2) and still 7-to-2.
Orlando Magic (5-to-1) to a very generous 8-to-1.
Boston Celtics (5-to-1) to 10-to-1.
Denver Nuggets (10-to-1) to 12-to-1.
Oklahoma City Thunder (15-to-1) to 14-to-1.
San Antonio Spurs (20-to-1) to 25-to-1.
Dallas Mavericks (20-to-1) to 25-to-1.
Chicago Bulls (18-to-1) to a tempting 25-to-1.
The Cleveland Cavaliers plunged from 8-to-1 to 75-to-1.

Sorry Cleveland, things will never be the same...

Someone's a little bitter...

Here's a letter from Cav's owner Dan Gilbert, addressed to all those loyal Clevelanders out there. You can read it in full at the Cav's website

LBJ: The Disappointment...

The moment i heard those words, my heart sank.  
"...I'm going to take my talent to South Beach..." 
NO! This can't be! As appealing as playing for Los Heat might seem to The King, I don't think that's where he should have gone. Granted, having 3 all-star caliber players doesn't seem like it will hurt them, I think it will in the long run. Having 3 players take up most of your salary cap doesn't sound like a good business investment. Now they have about 9 roster spots to fill with their remaining 5 million-ish? Good luck getting any talent for that amount. This, and the fact that the new "Big 3" will be required to play about 40+ minutes per game for the whole season. And what if one (or more) of them get hurt? This puts and even bigger burden on the remaining players, who I'm assuming are already the new favorites to win it all this year. This could be a major train-wreck waiting to happen.

He doesn't look too happy if you ask me...
See video of The Disappointment here...
See video of people reactions here...

But who gets the ball in their hands when it matters most. Wade wants it, but so does James. Will this cause cause conflict between teammates? A possible mid-season fallout, all over who takes the final shot in those crucial moments? Once again, I dont think this was the right move for James. The Decision has been made, and only time will tell if this move pays off. Or if it is the biggest flop in sports history...

Im still holding on the hopes that the contract negotiations go horribly wrong, and he goes to Chicago :-)

Update: The contract has been signed...

The time is now...

The time has come. The King will make an announcement within the next hour on where he will play for the next few seasons.


If youre not watching ESPN right now, WTF is wrong with you????

LBJ Watch: Update! pt. 2

The time is near my friends, i can feel the buzz in the air.

In less than an hour, the LBJ special will air, and he will announce his decision live on the air (within the last 5 minutes, im assuming. Isn't that how TV works these days?) Anyways, if youre interested in doing some last minute research/ guessing as to where he will go, take a look at this Bill Simmons article over at ESPN.com. He brings up some really good points about the LeBron signing. Go and read it if you've got a few minutes...

Im still having a hard time believing that he'll sign with the Heat. What kind of fierce competitor wants to take the "Help!" route... This instantly will make him a lesser player than Jordan and Kobe. I'm not buying it.


T minus 40 minutes!!

LBJ Watch: Update!

Yahoo news ran a story this morning that might have just blown the cover off this whole LeBron decision thing. I surely hope this is not the case...


"LeBron James has rented six cabanas at the W Hotel South Beach this weekend to celebrate his team decision, two sources confirm to UsMagazine.com.
That adds more fuel to the fire that James, 25, will announce he's joining the Miami Heat Thursday night, as several insiders told ESPN this morning." [US Magazine]


Still in a state of denial, I'm hoping this is the ultimate PR curveball, thrown in there just to add further confusion/ drama to tonight's on-air decision.  Tonight's special edition of sportSCenter, being called The Decision, will be on ESPN tonight at 6 pm PT, and could potentially draw in more viewers than the NBA Finals. It will be interesting to see just how many Americans actually care about this whole ordeal. I know I've been counting down the hours. Whatever he chooses, he will still be the most dominant player in the game today, if not all time.

That being said, i still think going to Miami would be an extremely pusstastic move...




T minus 3 hours til D-Day

Here it is...

The inevitable LBJ post.  

       Through months, even years, of waiting, tomorrow is the day we've all been waiting for... D(ecision)-Day 2010. Whatever occurs tomorrow at 6pm will shape the NBA for the next few years.  Where will he go? Will he join Wade and Bosh on the super-duper team (Monstars a.k.a. Miami Heat), taking the easy route to a winning a ring? Or will he create his own destiny on, lets say, the Bulls, and take matters into his own hands? The only way to know for sure is to tune in to ESPN tomorrow at 6pm(pacific).  




Here is my list of possibilities:


 1. Chicago Bulls- Joining the likes of Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, and the newest addition, Carlos Boozer, I think this is a damn good fit for LBJ. This is a pretty mean looking starting line-up if you ask me, and he is given a chance to win a title in a pretty big basketball market. Not to mention he will be treated like a savior in Chi Town.  
Most viable option for the King.

2. Miami Heat- Coming in at a close second, joining the Heat would be a pretty pussy move for "the King".  A King always wants to be the man in charge, a dictator if you will, and joining D. Wade's team would not fit the M.O. Can you imagine Wade and James sharing the ball? I sure cant, as I feel they both want the ball in their hands at all times. If you factor this along with the fact that, beyond Wade and Bosh, there's nothing too impressive on the Heat's roster. 
It is not the LBJ way to take the easy victory.

3. Cleveland Cavs-  As appealing as it might sound to the rest of the world, staying in his hometown of Cleveland is probably not gonna happen. The whole "Delonte banged LeBron's Mom"[TerezOwens.com] thing really pissed him off and I'm sure he wants to get out of there with whatever dignity he has left. Also, consider the fact that the Cavs were so preoccupied with convincing LBJ to return, they didn't really pursue any other free agents on the market. He surely doesn't want to come back to the same team that hasn't been able to get it done the past few years in a row. Not to mention how disgustingly desperate the whole city of Cleveland was is to keep him.
Still possible, not probable.

4. NY Knicks- I don't really see him going to New York, even though it has probably the biggest basketball market. The only reason he would choose the Knicks would be for the money (not like he needs it, hes pretty much set for life), which he has already said was not a factor in where he signs. The talent is just not there in New York. T Mac is way past his prime, and Amar'e is pretty much useless without Nash as his pick and roll parter in crime.
Probably not going to New York.

5. NJ Nets- It's a definately a longshot, but the Nets have a bright future ahead of them. They have plenty of young talent, and a billionaire Russian owner who is willing to drop mad bank to make the team successful. Oh yeah, and LeBron's buddy Jay-Z is a part owner so that wont hurt either. But i dont think it'll happen, as they didn't pick up any big names over the off-season.  
Sorry HOV, not the Nets.

6. LA Clippers- Almost 100% not gonna happen, but i gotta throw it out there just for fun. LeBron James has Hollywood written all over him. From that million dollar smile to that business minded mentality, we would do GREAT in LA. But, LA is Kobe-Town. There's no way he will even think about trying to turn the town against their hero, the Black Mamba. And for whatever reason, the Clips have a history of bad luck with their players (ahem. Blake. Griffin.)
  Not Happening.



All this speculation leaves us with the question,

Where will you be on D-Day 2010?
