Happy Parade Day!

The Lakers have shut down streets in Downtown LA.. And Ron Ron’s new single/video is out!

Shouts to my hood.. and my psychiatrist.

I’m having a mini Laker parade in my room right now.  You’re all invited.

Live life like it’s Game 7.

What a day!

Well, well.  The Lakers stepped it up and pushed the series to Game 7 tonight!

..or so I heard.  I was sadly checking my phone for updates every 2 minutes while working here.  Containers 89, Mariko 67.

In addition.. happy Drake day!  I hope you reach wayyyyyyy back into your memory and try to recall how to actually go buy an album.  Good luck.  I’m pretty sure you can find instructions on the internet if you start to feel lost.

In addition.. the Cookin’ Soul boys and Don Cannon put their own spin on TML.

Since you’re here..

Somehow it’s been decided that tonight’s entry will include the 10 blogs I’ve checked most recently.  Here they are, from most to least recent.  I wonder what this says about me.

Lakers Nation.  Three more.

Ill Doctrine.  Jay Smooth is so great at Debo-ing folks with his words.

What Claudia Wore.  Hilarious, if you were ever an avid BSC fan.

2dopeboyz.  The gold standard when it comes to hip hop bloggery.

The Hundreds.  Anytime I’m starting to feel way too cool, I check Bobby’s blog and it helps to knock me back down a few notches.

Disgrasian.  Calling folks out, all the time.

Shannon Hori.  My cousin is a CBS anchorwoman and an awesome mom.

Nailstah.  My girl Annie has a lot of time on her hands.  Meanwhile I own 2 bottles, total.

Foreign Family. My big brother Mr. 44 lets me live vicariously through his blog.

Science Blog.  It’s exactly what it sounds like, and I love it.

Coach Wooden leaves behind him a legacy, a legend, and generations of grateful players/coaches/fans.

Praying for Coach Wooden..

Filed under: Hoops, Life — Tags: , — marimcfly @ 11:18 pm

As of 3 hours ago, Coach Wooden is still “in grave condition.”  Let’s hope The Legend pulls through.  Every single basketball player I know has been positively affected by his wisdom.  I’ve blogged about his awesome philosophy and quotes before, so for now I’ll just pick one that seems to say it all:

“Sports don’t build character, they reveal it.”

Sooooo I took my comp exam on Friday, and now I have a Masters degree.  Sha-BAM.

That’s the good news..

The not-so-good news is that my classes for the Clinical Doctorate start on Tuesday.. So this past weekend was basically an entire Summer vacation, packed into 3 days.

Friday: Caught the Laker game at Yankee Doodle, with some friends from my Pomona days.

SATURDAY: "Prom Night" with my grad school girls.

SUNDAY: Doug hooked in up with 100-level Laker tickets. Wow.

So.. now I’m exhausted, I have no voice, and I’m so full of nachos that I’m ready to hibernate.  It’s been a good “Summer.”  🙂

The crossover.

Man.. Allen Iverson is retiring.  So much talent, so much passion, and so much attitude.  I still remember the first time he did THE CROSSOVER during an NBA game.  The next day, we spent the entire lunch period in the gym, trying to imitate him.  I know he had a few stumbles over the years, but I choose to remember the happier times.

The best to do it since Tim Hardaway.

Iverson’s statement [here]

Thanks for everything, AI.. We’ll miss you!
