I just realized the Academy Awards were on the same night as the NBA all-star game. Oops. Different genres of people, I guess.
I watched the 2nd half of the NBA All-Star game because at the end of the first half the score was something insane like 109-88 for the Western Conference which meant the Miami Heat threesome of LeBron (I am the King) James, Dwayne (I can win on my own and don’t need these clowns) Wade and… oh yeah that third wheel and former Raptor Chris (Can I please ride on your coat-tails) Bosh, were losing. Yay. so I continued watching hoping for the Eastern conference to lose even though my Raptors play in the East.
But to my utter enjoyment, the East made a game of it, LBJ was putting up 3-pointer after 3-pointer. It was incredible. Sure they were down by 20 points, but that is when LBJ is at his best, right? because when push came to shove, it was LBJ who missed a key 3, and then Wade dropped a long-bomb pass which would have been an easy lay-up and probable East win. Even on the last shot of the game, LBJ didn’t want to take it, he passed it off.
They choked. He choked.
History repeats itself.
And when the camera panned to LBJ, he was laughing and shrugging his shoulders like it was nothing. Then while being interviewed he played it off even more along the lines of it doesn’t really matter, the game is over.
It does matter. LBJ knows he is not the most popular player in the league and that he is slowly developing a reputation of being a bit of a choke artist. It’s getting to him, and it’s clearly obvious. He wants to win but doesn’t want that last shot. Wade will take it. Kobe will take it. Even Bosh is used to taking it since he was forced to in Toronto.
This is the same LBJ who was so popular in high school that either an agent or the school bought his mother a Hummer and when it was made public they denied it. He’s not cut from a moral cloth to be a role model and to be honest, he’s drinking the cool-aid about how great he is (or thinks he is).
Now having said all this, the Heat will probably win the championship this year… UGH.
On Sunday, I took Linus with me to a volunteer event – we, at the urban daddy household volunteer at least once a month with the kids to give back to the community – and we took part in an hour of yoga while at this event. Let me tell you this… Dads… It was hard. I’m sure the moms have done it numerous times and we all know woman are more flexible anyways, but for me it was tough, but as the program went on, I could really feel the stretch. I was sore after, a little bit sweaty – not like playing ball hockey – but I knew I was in a workout. So then after all the cobra’s, downward dogs, sunset’s, etc., the instructor informed me this was a “beginner” class. OY.
By Monday morning, I realized that my back was not sore when I woke up which told me need to do more yoga!
What do you have to say?
