Suns lose

Let the Zeke whining begin!

On to something else.

I'm not sure when it happened, but I just don't like basketball anymore. I mean, it used to be THE game. I'd walk outside my front door as a kid and see two different games going on. I even had my own hoop. I remember times in the fall when I would play from the time school let out till it was dark. I remember every day at recess playing 21. What happened to that love, that passion?

It seems like now would be the appropriate place for me to spell out the reason why I hate basketball now. But I a) don't have the time and b) can't actually figure out why. I mean, I could go off on how the bloated salaries and general lack of effort turned me away from the game. But those topics have been done and redone so many times. And it doesn't really seem like that's the heart of the problem. Maybe one day I'll figure it out, and I can go back to being a bball maniac. But until then, apathy is my way.

We have actual exciting things happening too!

Indy 500 is approaching. I'm hopefully working for the 500 parade, and I'm also thinking about snagging some tix. We'll see how that plays out.

NASCAR All-star race this weekend. Seems so early for it. But it's actually pretty exciting. Lots of crashes, for sure.

Cubs, well, they're just the Cubs. I imagine I'll see some glimmers of hope, then a quick stab to the heart. That's why I bought MLB 2k7. So I can pretend.

You know, I enjoy getting calls that give me work, but did you seriously have to call this early?

ebntx said...

freak, welcome to adulthood.

ebntx said...

i got the "its almost friday" speech already.

El Padrino said...

hhheeeeeeeeeyyyyy oooooooo

El Padrino said...

eb, we all know what to do to that person

jugdish said...

Its virtual Firday for me, to hell with almost Friday.

El Padrino said...

if i read one more farve story i'm gonna puke

ToddPacker said...

indy 500 is worthless

ToddPacker said...

i feel the need to give the daily update:


mets back in 1st

Iam what I am said...

it's cause u have no jumpshot.

ToddPacker said...

wtf brew-crew... it's the phils

ToddPacker said...

did i miss something, why did steve bring the heat to meiz last night...

and i agree with meiz, i did't get the rev joke about being cold

Iam what I am said...

nets cavs is quite possibly the most disgusting series evar.

youre effin pros, hit some shots.

Iam what I am said...

slaps were handed out?

rev=chills=cold=bigguyswouldusuallybesweaty

ToddPacker said...

"rev=chills=cold=bigguyswouldusuallybesweaty"


ohhh, i get it.... i'm dumb

El Padrino said...

freak you either got a wicked jumpshot or sling crack rock

ToddPacker said...

so no one or as tjw would say noone won the rev contest... i thought for sure he would have commented last night on posting on the wrong blog

ToddPacker said...

"freak you either got a wicked jumpshot or sling crack rock"


nice

ToddPacker said...

easley has 6 bombs already... valentin might not get his job back

El Padrino said...

A platoon of Easley and "El Moustache" is fine with me

Iam what I am said...

I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker.

tem said...

Nets/Cavs made my eyes bleed.

Couple that with the SG pod cast and now I can not see or hear.

ToddPacker said...

did you watch any of the mets classics last night during the rain delay, ep... it was the clincher from 88... it was fun watching and trying to figure out who was coked out and who wasn't

tem said...

indy 500 is pretty cool.

fmtem and her fam go every year. (they are from Ft. Wayne)

i went a couple times, but decided the whole waking up at 3am to drive there and stuff wasn't for me.

Mills said...

we had a WC sighting last night, and nobody talked to him. what's up with that?

Mills said...

i gave the "its almost friday" talk today...

El Padrino said...

tp i did, i watch those all the time, i love the phillies pitcher with the giant eyeglasses

just funny shit, kevin mitchell was a animal

IAM - Nice BR line

El Padrino said...

"i gave the "its almost friday" talk today..."

weasel

Mills said...

cards. not in first place.

ToddPacker said...

i think the wc sighting got lost in the suns/spurs talk

Mills said...

what can i say. its the default answer when you got nothing.

ToddPacker said...

i miss ralph kiner's drunk talk... i wish he was still doing the met games.... last year they would bring him in to do an inning or two on friday home games, but i have not yet heard him this season

Mills said...

tp -- if i had to rock a 8:30-6:30 gig, I would be making the 2 hr lunch a necissity.

ToddPacker said...

i usually go with a 1.5 hour lunch

Mills said...

Ichiro wants to become a pitcher at 40?

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

"freak, welcome to adulthood."

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Mills said...

Ichiro Article. Exclusive for USA Today. Blah Blah.

tem said...

I am pretty sure Kenny Chesney is gay.

And when the country music world finds out about this the entertainment meter will be locked on 100%.

El Padrino said...

ralph kiner is good times
Uecker reminds me of him in Major League when he's plastered

ToddPacker said...

back to back meetings.... i'm out for a while

El Padrino said...

freak stay tuned for another spanking today via metropolitans

1:15

ebntx said...

the only baseball i care to watch is my 6 yr olds t-ball games.

jugdish said...

I read up on the late night LOV from last night.

Zeke cracks me up. He complains about the Spurs, and especially Tim Duncan whining about fouls, but if I had to do a running diary from last night's LOV, it would look something like this:

9:07 - Zeke complains about officiating.

9:10 - Zeke thinks the refs are handing the game to the Spurs (Sterns).

9:22 - Zeke counts 7 BS fouls on the Suns.

9:27 - Zeke declares the game is fixed.

9:30 - Meiz poops for the 7th time today.

9:31 - Zeke talks about David Stern some more.


So in summary...Zeke is the Tim Duncan of LOV.

El Padrino said...

get jug a beer, that was work

jugdish said...

I'm for that.

ebntx said...

good call jug.

blue said...

The LoVAD diary is gold...pure gold Jerry!

JFreak the legend of thundercunt said...

which spanking will it resemble?

from 2 days ago or yesterday?

blue said...

Cavs/Nets represent all that is wrong with basketball. If I was watching basketball for the 1st time and I watched that game...I would have turned it off and gone and played Ninetendo Wii...

ebntx said...

have not watched that series. whats wrong with it?

blue said...

If you like to watch LeBron play 1 on 5, and then Vince try and match him, while they both miss tons of shots, it would be great. Last night was the first portion of that series I had watched, I won't watch anymore. East sucks

tem said...

Well I think they were a combined 1 for 23 or something shooting the ball in the fourth QTR.

The Nets scored 6 4th QTR points and still won by 11.

El Padrino said...

yesterday
the sun shines on a rat's ass every once in awhile you know

blue said...

Plus Cleveland has Varajeao who is a poor man's Joakim Noah....without the dress.

El Padrino said...

i cant stomach a nets game

tem said...

Lots of turnovers.

At times Mikki Moore is far and away the best player on the court.

Poor free throw shooting.

Lebron either playing 1 on 5 or not really trying at all.

El Padrino said...

Mets are going to throw 18MM a year (say, 4 yr deal, 70MM or so) at Ichiro this off-season

you heard it here first

blue said...

Mets already have a leadoff hitter. Yankees and bosox will throw major money at Ichiro too.

tem said...

Random Side Note:

Since players can't leave the bench why don't teams hire people like Chaz Oakley or heck Mike Tyson as assistant coaches. Then when a fracas occurs the assistant can leave the bench and fuck some people up.

blue said...

Isn't Oakley an assistant somewhere?

tem said...

Ichiro will be a member of the Red Sox so that Dice K can't strike him out anymore.

The Sox will throw the same cash the mets will at him.

tem said...

Maybe.

tem said...

Maybe is for Oakley.

El Padrino said...

"Mets already have a leadoff hitter."

imagine him in the two hole
behind reyes......

El Padrino said...

then beltran, delgado, wright

holy shit they could score a ton of runs

Mills said...

"At times Mikki Moore is far and away the best player on the court."

Are LeBron, Larry Hughes, Vince, Kidd, RJ, Drew Gooden, and Ilgauskaus all taking a breather during these times. Cuz otherwise, that is one of the worst statements I have ever read. EVER.

Iam what I am said...

as long as ichiro gets the eff outta SEA i dont care where he lands.

waste of a great career.

Iam what I am said...

it might be the worst statement ever made, but its troof.

tem said...

Did you watch the game Weasel?

Iam what I am said...

(sadly)

Spaceman Spiff said...

i have a fantasy baseball man crush on cole hamels

tem said...

If you didn't watch the game then just take my word for it.

Iam what I am said...

weezy is DSing

El Padrino said...

yeah i hear that iam

it'll be mets, sowx, angels, yanks

blue said...

weasel is using his DS type analysis of the game....

tem said...

Remember weazy that the whole point of that statement was to support the theory that this is one of the worst series to watch....ever.

So when Mikki Moore is outplaying all those people you mentioned, you just sit back and say to yourself "damn this is the worst series ever."

El Padrino said...

yea weazy like that's not possible

at times pippen was bettere than jordan, and jordan will say that

your an ass

tem said...

Although I do hafta say that Mikki is actually looking like a pretty good ball player lately.

Mills said...

tem --

i have watched other games, and miki moore on offense is pure scary. he gets nervous with the ball unless he is shooting a 10 foot jump shot, which he suprisingly has in his arsenal.

Spaceman Spiff said...

angels aint outbidding anyone

Mills said...

yea weazy like that's not possible

at times pippen was bettere than jordan, and jordan will say that

your an ass
-------------------------
you can be "that guy" (or my wife) who just takes the opposite position of me out of spite, but in reality...you are the ass. a giant horses ass.

Iam what I am said...

ya know how after u leave a job u look back and see the divide btwn when it was ok and then when it began to start sucking ass? (like someone cool leaves or the boss starts being a huge douche)

i think one of those moments just happened.

tem said...

He has played well the last two games and really at times has looked like the best player on the court. That's how bad this series is.

Mikki Game 6 line:

6-12 from the field, 2-2 from the line, 14 pts, 6 rebounds, 2 asst, 1 steal, 2 turn overs.


Mikki Game 5 line:

11-14 from the field, 3-3 from the line, 25 pts, 4 rebounds, 0 asst, 1 blk, 1 turn over.

ebntx said...

even weazy's wife cant stand him.

Mills said...

for mikki moore to be the best player on the floor. 4 legitimate dream teamers have to be sitting out all at the same time. sorry to prove the statement wrong, but it was.

yes, it is a horrible horrible series though.

i really thought the j-kidd, rj, and vince up-tempo machine would be awesome back in the day, but in reality it is pretty sad. they should have been the suns before the suns, but they are a giant moon[ing] to the fans instead.

El Padrino said...

i'm not taking opposition because your weazy i'm taking opposition because you called out the statement that happned to be true and made yourself look like what i called u, ass.

Mills said...

iam --

wha' happened? did your lead fry cook just quit, and the boss pass you over for a promotion?

Iam what I am said...

Remember weazy that the whole point of that statement was to support the theory that this is one of the worst series to watch....ever.

So when Mikki Moore is outplaying all those people you mentioned, you just sit back and say to yourself "damn this is the worst series ever."

i have nothing else to add, just wanted to make sure we didnt miss the point.

again.

El Padrino said...

is corb black? or spanish? or asian?

blue said...

you just aren't getting it weazy...on paper he's not the best player on the floor, but he's playing better then all of those guys because they are sucking ass...tem's statement was dead on

Mills said...

white and not slim.

Iam what I am said...

nah weez, i totally do the ketchup refills in the dining area, and they hired another guy and are training him on that now.

now i fucking do STRAWS. u know how much more often u have to refill the straws? fuuuuuuuuuuck.

El Padrino said...

fat white boy huh

blue said...

refilling straws takes away from LOV time

Mills said...

mikki is contributing over what he should be yes, but he doesn't hav the resposibilities or difficulties thrown at him that any of the 4 Dreamers have thrown at them.

put the same pressure or responsibilities on mikki and he would be swallowed up within 1 minute. Therefore, he is still not the best player on the floor even when it seems like he is contributing more than those guys. that is all i am saying.

yes, watching vince and lebron shoot 11% would make me want to accompany the wife to a mani/pedi session over watching the game -- that IS bad. we are all in agreement.

blue said...

they grow 'em large in Iowa

Mills said...

iam--

my deepest condolences. that, to borrow from others here, stings the nostrils.

blue said...

Oh My GOD he just doesn't get it

Mills said...

don't forget short ep.

he actually has lost a lot of weight. but probably rocks 5'8, 220 lbs.

Mills said...

maybe a bit less.

Mills said...

corbin is trouble. always up to shennanigans.

jugdish said...

tomfoolery is a much better word.

El Padrino said...

5'8, 200+

damn, at least rev is 6ft or taller

Mills said...

jug -- very true.

there is bar here called tom foolories. i always do the good will hunting therapist voice when we drive by it. awesome sunday brunch buffet, with blood mary bar.

Mills said...

there is no comparison on fatness. rev dominates corbin in that department based on pics i have seen.

no offense rev.

mike is stocky. not as fat anymore. he hides it as well as you can for 200+

Spaceman Spiff said...

god damn mini rev

tem said...

OK old people are rounding people up for lunch. Time to eat.

I rest my case RE: "At times Mikki Moore is far and away the best player on the court."

tem said...

a mini rev sounds like a car of some kind.

ok gotta eat.

Iam what I am said...

does he wear lots of flare at Shenanigans?

Mills said...

i wouldn't be suprsised if you read about some iowan that got arrested over the weekend at a mets game for doing something riduculous.

jugdish said...

Does he look like George Costanza?

Mills said...

corbin rocks the flare with his gay lovers.

Mills said...

Does he look like George Costanza?

exactly (s)

blue said...

Paul Shirley chats at 3ET for millls

Mills said...

nice blue.

i like 'em, except when he starts going down the obscure underground band road.

to "that guy" we get it, you are above mainstream/crap music. you are better than us.

Mills said...

"a mini rev sounds like a car of some kind."

this is true. but if rev really had a mini-me, would it still be bigger than average? say 5'11" 250?

Mills said...

LOST looks sweet for next week.

Mills said...

i still haven't gotten to see Heroes this week either.

Iam what I am said...

finally heard that Stern interview at home last night... i can understand his point, and that he basically had to go by the letter of the law.. but he sounded fookin retarded and he was taking it to every extreme possible.

and why werent Nash and Bell suspended? both of them had a physical confrontation with Horry..

isiah thomas said...

freak I'll give you an opportunity to revise the begining of this post or I'll do it myself.

Mills said...

did everybody see the brady quinn pic from his sisters wedding?

Iam what I am said...

'corbin rocks the flare with his gay lovers.'

so now i can picture what you wear on a daily basis.

El Padrino said...

me and tps are doing that "stare contest" thing

i'm winning so far

isiah thomas said...

and jug when the team you're rooting for is constantly getting screwed over I'm sure you just sit back and play it cool. I get pissed about it. I'm sure I'm the only fan in America that does it.

isiah thomas said...

don't fuck with me today

jugdish said...

Zeke...try some midol and take a nap for a little while.

jugdish said...

I wanted the Suns to win yesterday too, as did most people. I just thought my comparison was funny...Tim.

ebntx said...

i sense the ball might be going home early today.

El Padrino said...

to be fair here let's not forget the 97 knicks when PJ brown body slammed Charlie Ward

warrants mentioning

Iam what I am said...

ep, tps is intimidated by the 'stache. it dont dare mess wit the Pab'.

isiah thomas said...

its all good I can take a joke at my expense and zeke/TD is pretty good.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Lou < TJW.

jugdish said...

T-minus 4 hours until Jug is gone for the weekend!

blue said...

yeah, what the hell got into steve last night...maybe a few too many CLs

El Padrino said...

hey we all whine when it comes to our teams

injuries, suspensions, dumb players, etc

as long as your not part of why not us fan base your good

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The Brewers are pathetic.

Iam what I am said...

zeke, u should change your pic to the duncan face til the suns are out.

(so friday u can change it back.)

jugdish said...

TJW went to Toronto for the week.

ebntx said...

weather should cooperate nicely for you jug.

El Padrino said...

i was gonna say that jug

tjw = summer camp

once time in band camp, i sucked dick.

jugdish said...

I saw that, like a 10% chance of rain, but really there is only a 5% chance of that!

isiah thomas said...

suns = done

Iam what I am said...

i was more surprised that lou spelled all those words correctly.

blue said...

summers together=memories forever

isiah thomas said...

LB has been letting me down.

jugdish said...

I am so worthless at work today.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"yeah, what the hell got into steve last night...maybe a few too many CLs"


Couldn't have been CL. Probably Bartles & Jaymes.

blue said...

"seagrams...golden wine coolers...seagrams...it's wet and it's dry...golden wine coolers"

isiah thomas said...

the Magnuss ver Magnussun CL commercial cracks me up - not because its that funny, but bc's he's swolled up and drinking it and kod drinks it.

Iam what I am said...

zeke, do any of the local guys call him Lee-Bo?

isiah thomas said...

when Lou drinks/get drunk he steals his 2nd Daddy's peach schnapps and goes to town.

El Padrino said...

"suns = done"

disagree, they win game 6
stoudemire has a monster game, D'Antoni found out that Marion can guard Duncan last night, more double teaming, more pick and rolls

now, game 7 is going to be a war
suns got the crowd, since im a betting man i would moderately wager on suns winning next two

nash has a look about him like he knows this year is as good as a shot as any

ToddPacker said...

1 meeting down, 1 meeting to go

ToddPacker said...

more mills don't get it talk... wow surprising

ToddPacker said...

mini rev was funny

isiah thomas said...

sounds good in theory.

Nash/Bell/Marion logged heavy minutes.

Amare will be fired up but he plays immature and him picking up 2 fouls in the first 3 minutes is a distinct possibility.

The Suns have been the better team, so you can't count them out...yet.

isiah thomas said...

I'll start a Lee Bo campaign.

isiah thomas said...

and I've got Game 7 tix so I'm still praying for them to win on Friday.

ToddPacker said...

steve was a little aggresive last night with meiz... maybe he's thinking of next years duke squad already

blue said...

lou was mad because Duke Lacrosse isn't playing so well in the tournament.

ebntx said...

marion will probably pout with amare back and will play like shit.

El Padrino said...

i think they absoulutely win game 6
i really do

forget the heavy minutes thing, marion can run the boston marathon and then swim across the atlantic

diaw, marion, stoudemire gaurding duncan, force duncan to go jumpshot,double team

on o - pick and roll his ass even with KT who bangs home 12-15 footers like water and just make sure parker doesn't go off

barbosa has to show up tho, he has to be captain

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Gotta say it even though nobody cares...God of War II's final battle is waaaaaayyyyyy harder than the first.

ToddPacker said...

time for meeting #2

Mills said...

"i sense the ball might be going home early today."

its the day for hyperbole....

best line ever?

jugs midol comment was a close second.

El Padrino said...

tp stay awake out there

isiah thomas said...

marion can run the boston marathon and then swim across the atlantic

only TJW can do this

Spaceman Spiff said...

marion will be wearing another jersey next year

ebntx said...

and tjw will do this after an all night 3some with mom and daughter.

El Padrino said...

he's a fool if he does
if he thinks his the best forward on the team then they should have won last night

isiah thomas said...

those were good comments.

I nominate anything weazy says as wOrSt.CoMmEnTs.EvAr!

for sure dood!

wipeout!

ebntx said...

spiff is on to something. he wants to be the alpha dog.

El Padrino said...

"and tjw will do this after an all night 3some with mom and daughter."

then fail a math test

El Padrino said...

they easily win that game is amare is there, easily

jugdish said...

Game 7 tix would be sweet!

Mills said...

i agree with ep. nash is focused like never before. he will will them to 2 more wins in this series.

i kind of wish they wouldn't have played him the whole second half though, but they were winning, so what can you do?

jugdish said...

TJW has a daughter at 14? WOW

isiah thomas said...

no doubt ep, woulda won going away.

Mills said...

"TJW has a daughter at 14? WOW"

What did I miss? I certainly don't get this.

jugdish said...

It was in reference to this comment:

"and tjw will do this after an all night 3some with mom and daughter. "

isiah thomas said...

it means he LITERALLY has a 14 yr old daughter weazy, he really does. It's the truth.

Mills said...

pipe it zeke. didn't know if i missed a tjw post or something.

like that isn't a possibility?

isiah thomas said...

like for sure dood!

ebntx said...

back in a couple of hours. give me something good to read when i get back.

jugdish said...

Phil Jackson's girlfriend, Jeannie Buss...I had never seen a picture of her until now. Phil didn't do too bad for someone as old as him. Not that she is gorgeous or anything, but isn't he approaching 70?

Jeannie Buss

isiah thomas said...

she posed for Playboy back in the day.

isiah thomas said...

I think Phil's in his late 50's.

isiah thomas said...

but he looks about 79

El Padrino said...

he zen's that pussy

then she makes him breakfast while applying "the triangle"

blue said...

she posed in playboy back in the day

El Padrino said...

owner's daughter dating the head coach

shouldnt there be a rule against that?

blue said...

i am a copycat today

jugdish said...

He can barely walk too.

isiah thomas said...

Let's add Ginobli's nose to the "things you don't want to see in HD" list.

tem said...

Didn't she used to be a blonde?

tem said...

The pop at Chipolte was super nasty. Now I gotta waste a dollar on the machine downstairs.

El Padrino said...

i like that you call it "pop"

tem said...

and fuck if i didn't just remember that i have a 1pm conference call.

too bad i can't sleep through it.

tem said...

iam, freak and mills probably call it pop too. not sure about the rest of you.
