Ok, I realize that King James…aka the NBA’s Lebron James, is probably the most important and sought after free agent in the last decade or so, maybe longer. The man, who went straight from highschool to the NBA, is a wonder to behold on the court. He is, without a doubt, one of the best players to ever step foot on the hardwood floors of professional basketball. As far as I know…the following teams are in contention for his services:
New York KnicksNew Jersey NetsChicago BullsCav’s (his current and only team)Miami Heat
Giving him a fucking ONE HOUR (on ESPN, not the NBA network) show to announce which team he is going to sign with is friggin ridiculous and downright disgusting. Disgusting in the fact that King James is supposed to announce his decision within the first 10-15 minutes of the show…wtf are they going to do with the other 45-50 minutes? Show the riots and carnage in Cleveland when they go batshit bonkers over losing Lebron? Show grown men weeping at the thought that Lebron will be playing for a rival team? A few words of wisdom via the NYT, from Jackie MacMullan, an ESPN reporter below:
Jackie MacMullan, an ESPN.com basketball columnist pointed out Wednesday on ESPNews the absurdity of “The Decision.” “I’m a big fan of LeBron James but really, a one-hour special for a guy that hasn’t really done anything?” she said on a network that became JamesNews for the day. “Truly, it’s just unbelievable. It’s unfathomable, yet we’re all part of feeding the beast. We created this monster, and he’s just playing along.”
She added: “An hour special? How long does it take to say, ‘I’m going here.’ I think it only takes 10 seconds.”I don’t know and I don’t care at this point. I just think the hype on this is over the fucking top.
Lebron’s agent came up with this stupid idea…it figures, as only a money-grubbing sports agent would think this shit will fly. ESPN will probably get huge ratings and the commercial spots are probably going for SuperBowl type money.
Even the fucking President has weighed in on this decision that Lebron has to make…I shit you not people. We have soldiers dying in Afghanistan daily now and the Gusher in the Gulf is probably killing off entire species of turtles and pelicans. We have an elected body of assholes that are cutting off unemployment benefits for millions of Americans just trying to make ends meet and feed their families…the list of important issues is fucking endless.
So, to that end…I give you a little bit o’ brevity from Keith Olbermann and Harry Shearer on this horseshit of a show that will be blasting on my tv tomorrow night at 6pm Cali time…at least it will be until he tells us who the lucky city is that he will bless with his talents. Then, I will change the channel and check out Rachel Maddows show and the repeat of Countdown.
The Fourth of July has become nothing more than a day the free markets, and capitalists in general, get a woody at the thought of their coffers overflowing with cash.
The Fourth really is nothing more than that, don’t bullshit me OK?
That said..enjoy your three-day weekend folks. The temperatures here in the southend of the San Joaquin valley are stifling ( 90-100+), not to mention the dewpoint and humidity off-the-friggin-charts, and therefore do not encourage anyone with an ounce of sense to spend any more time than necessary out of doors. The ball n’ chain™ will do his damnest to bribe me into running the BBQ, regardless of the meat being grilled…I do not do steaks…chicken only.
I will tell him to kiss my brown ass and consider making use of the crockpot…where he will then give in and do the dirty deed at least one day out of the next three.
Plenty of sports on my horizon and thankfully..NO FUCKING POLITICS, as all the assholes in DC have bee-lined it home for a blissful week of fucking off in their own stomping grounds around our wonderful nation.
Another Bonus for Pigs that don’t deserve it: BP gets a reprieve from the constant barrage of questions and news stories about the Gusher in the Gulf and the millions of people and animals…and our ecosystem that is slowly being destroyed.
Whatever you do…enjoy it or commit to it…. 😉
The photo is just a whimsical one that speaks to spying on Americans…hey, it’s the flag so it’s patriotic right?
Where do you think his speech was on the Bullshit Meter? Off the fucking charts.
Well, what did you think of his plan man? Same shit, different President.
Did ya think he sold it to the majority of Americans? Oh hell no.
Do ya think it’s a war worth fighting for another eight fucking years? Not only no but fuck no.
Do ya think he sounded like an eloquent used car salesman who is trying like hell to sell ya a piece of shit yet he makes it sound like the best deal out there? Yep, that sums it up.
I know he told us that he would continue to fight this war, but for the love of Buddha..why prop up another fucked up regime with billions borrowed from China? Don’t ask me I am just a pissed off voter..nothing more and nothing less. And there are millions just like me, Dems, Repubs and Indy’s alike.
There is now a website that is taking orders for folks that will contribute to Sean’s favorite charity if he follows through on his own statement to be waterboarded for charity. It offers different options for your donations. Its a cute little site with phrases like the following:
Your participation does not constitute an obligation on your part, it is only a statement of your interest in donating to an event such as Sean Hannity growing a pair and getting Waterboarded for Charity.
Ain’t that cute? I love it! Check it out if you are so inclined..Sean will of course never follow through on this..he doesn’t have the stones.
I just can not deal with political fuckery right now. I have way too much crappola going on in my personal life, my plate, it seems, is very full. Sirens Chronicles was hacked again..and this time might be the one that takes it down and we rebuild from scratch..losing years of everyone’s work. It looks ok from the outside..but none of us can get inside the site. 😦
I have medical issues again..but the bad part is the Doc hasn’t got clue friggin one about what is wrong with me and that doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy. The worst part is the unending, constant pain associated with this medical problem..no pain med in the world helps..I kid you not. I can’t walk, sit, move, cough, etc..without sharp jabbing pain internally. That shit gets old real fast and its now been 10 days and counting. Needless to say I am consuming a lot of medicinal cannabis and a Vicodin or RushBo’s favorite..Oxycontin, every 5 hours to boot. Nothing takes the pain away..I just don’t give a shit when I am doped up to my eyeballs.
The CT scan was interesting as I had never had one before. Nothing like laying on a table that slides in and out of a giant donut. It was a noisy machine however and my ears were humming for hours afterward. Now we wait for the reading of the slides and the report to go across town to my Doc. This medical issue has nothing (he thinks) to do with the blown three discs in my back..so at least I do not have to deal with the jackasses at Workers Compensation..just the jackasses at my regular heath insurance company. They move with the speed of a geriatic turtle..bet if they were in alot of pain they would move their asses..what do you think?
As for good news..ok I have some:
Spanky is making friends with the other kittehs of the house..but he still plays pretty much only with Pee Wee, the second youngest kitteh and an evil little bastard to boot. Pee Wee has managed to destroy five sets of blinds, three blackout curtains and the curtain rod over the kitchen sink..which is a bitch since I have a bad habit of walking around the kitchen dressed in nothing but my bra and underoos. So I like to make breakfast and dinner semi-nude..who cares?
Probably the dude next door..he didn’t sign up for this when he rented that apartment next door to our house..watching some ole biddy parading around in her skivvies. Believe me when I say small children would run away screaming if they caught a glimpse of me half dressed. That way I don’t ruin a perfectly good shirt, as I am a very sloppy cook..makes sense right?
My son in OK has adopted a sweet little cocker spaniel. The poor thing was being punked by a big mean boxer and my son told his boss he would take the little guy. He called me several times tonight to give me updates on how Charlie the Cocker was doing..and whether Fred the Cat had opened Charlie’s snout yet. When Brian was little, we had a great little cocker named Reggie..sadly my ex got him in the divorce. I did drive over to VA and steal him once..but found out that the VA cops will cross state lines when the animal is valued at over a grand.
Needless to say I had to give Reggie back to the ex. Brian was sad for months. We would drive over to VA from MD once a week and visit Reggie whilst the ex was out getting tanked on Saturdays. Eventually the ex’s neighbors turned him in for animal abuse, but failed to call and tell me. By the time I found out about it..Reggie was gone from animal control.
But Brian loves his new little cocker with the self esteem issues. It’s funny that he did this as he has constantly bitched at me for years for taking in every abused dog and abandoned cat for miles around. He calls me a sucker on a regular basis..and..guess what..I called him one tonight at least a half a dozen times. 😉
On the sports front..my hapless Padres are ahead of the Dodgers in the standings. True, its only been five days since the start of the season..but hey..you have to take your glory when you can..and since we are a split family when it comes to baseball, this gives me the opportunity to talk shit about the Dodgers to the Ball n’ Chain™.
I never miss that kinda opportunity folks..lemme tell ya. And yes, they actually wore those mustard-colored uni’s back in 1972. Gross..
Well, I lied..you got a bit o’ sports..and no music..so sue me. You want music..check out my tunes at Blip. They run the gamut..from Blues to The Kinks, to Led Zeppelin. And a whole lotta stuff in between. Blip is all the new rage..come join us!
