Who watched that Lakers/Celtics game? Definitely felt like a playoff game. I think L.A. truly believes they can win it all, even without Andrew Bynum. But the Celtics are still the champs. Here's hoping for a rematch.
Ya know, we were supposed to drop a podcast today. But when I checked the second half of it, my voice was in and out of the recording. Then I saw that the mic wasn't totally hooked up to my comp. Ugh. So to those who are expecting a podcast today, I apologize. We will attempt it again sometime soon. It's really too bad because we had a lot of delicious topics. Lakers Vs Celtics. All-Star weekend. Some dude that went to Philadelphia had season-ending surgery. Yup. Once again, I'm sorry. I will jump into a bedful of knives now.
I'm actually bummed about it so I'm mustering all my strength to do this last blog entry for the week. LET'S DO THIS.
Anyway, I want to give props to Brian Spaeth from Brian's Thoughts About Airplanes (he also used to do yaysports.com) for this lovely, lovely poem about The No-Look Pass. Thanks, dawg!
All right. Let me dish.
FEATURED BLOG OF THE WEEK: The Basketball Jones
J.E. Skeets of Ball Don't Lie and Tas Melas do this video podcast five days a week. They go over the previous night's happenings of the L. It's a great basketball alternative to all them sports shows going on ESPN and Fox Sports or whatever. They'll answer E-Mails on the air and even make some bets (Skeets lost last week and had to do karaoke to a song of Tas' choice). Anyway, nothing else needs to be said... JUST WATCH IT.
Unfortunately, they root for the Toronto Raptors.
All right. Link love.
