All things sports

Sorry this post has absolutely nothing to do with writing. I'm telling you this now so you are not disappointed. The last thing I want is for you to read through my post, hoping to discover a fantastic analogy (because in case you didn't know I'm the queen of them) only to find nothing. This way no ones mad at me.

First off, go Spain. I love this team. They play so well together, pass the ball magnificently and are mostly unselfish, except for Pedro at the end of the game. Frankly I thought Germany would have killed them with their fast transition play, but Spain hung in there. So I'll be cheering for Spain on Sunday.

Second, this Lebron James crap is just plain annoying. I think his decision tonight to leave the Cavaliers will tarnish his image of being one of the great players of basketball. Kobe Bryant didn't leave his team, Michael Jordan didn't leave his team. They led their teams to victory. I hope the Heat get booed everywhere they go and they don't win a championship.

Third, well actually I don't have a third, because well it's summer and I don't follow baseball.

Hope the two people that might read to the end of this post have a good weekend.

I bet Miami is happy though :)

I don't follow baseball either.

Tabitha Bird said...

Oh and didn't Jordan play for Washington in his second come back? :) Just saying :)

Patti said...

True Tabitha, but that was after he brought three championships to Chicago.

Thanks for commenting. You're one of the two.

Did you see the jersey burning? I snorted and started laughing! Terrible, I know!

Have a great weekend!

It looks like at least 3 people read to the end of this post. I agree with Tabitha, I bet Miami is happy.

I suppose I'm the token baseball fan here. I'm looking forward to the all star game next week.

You won over on my blog. Woohoo for you. Now you need to let me know if you want to use Amazon or BN.

Lebron came from my hometown, or close to it anyway. All I can say is good riddance. Cleveland has for too long seen them as their "sports savior" and it's like the whole silly city's economy was based off him. Too bad my family still lives there; I've long since left (although not to a place that's much better :P)

I hate to say I have to cheer for the Nederlands, me being Dutch and all, and Germany being out of it... but since I've only watched about three games in my life, all of which were in the past month, I'm not going to cry if Spain wins.

I have nothing to say about Lebron. Except I'll be glad when he's not in the news anymore. :)

LOL! I love your out-right disclaimer.

Last night my hubby and I had a conversation last that took us ten minutes into deciding if we cared about LeBron James. (We didn't. We just poked fun at each other through sarcasm.)

Carolyn V. said...

Well...I wish I knew more about sports but I don't. But Go Spain! (Is that the right team?)

I read to the end, but just for my boys' sake!

Sigh. A Sports Illustrated is laying on my pillow a la hubby, who wants to educate me on this stuff.

I've gotta go read it.
