-Random NBA celebrity sighting while in New York...Manute Bol (see Picture). Which brings the obvious question? What the hell is he doing at Trump Tower? Is he the new "surprise" in The Apprentice? You know like, win Manute's dinar (Sudanese dollar). Whatever, as long as he says, "you're fired" I'm on board.
-Steve Nash is so good that he's making Kurt Thomas look quick.
-Factoid of the night: The Utah Jazz's average age is 25.5. That's like 3 years younger than the BYU basketball team.
-Reason number 1,207 for not shopping at a grocery store after midnight: Old checkout guy goading Vietnam Vet into a conversation about his experience at Hamburger Hill.
"I heard a lot of people died there", as the guy is scanning cottage cheese.
"Yep", quietly, in a remorseful way.
"Like aaaaa lot of people."
"Yes." Sweat is starting to come out of his ears. People waiting in line are nervous.
"You must of lost a lot of friends."
"YES!" With a firmness that says, where's my gun. Everyone in the store are grabbing their cell phones and quickly moving for the exits.
"Gotta be a lot of bad memories."
I can't remember the rest of the conversation as I ran home avoiding the eventual Postal moment.
-I can't wait untill the Suns play Golden State again, last night's game was a throwback to the 1980's. Phoenix just knows how to rotate and fill spaces on the offensive end.
-Golden State threw everyting into the mix last night. They even rolled out Baron Davis's grandmother, Leyla Nicholson, to the game for inspiration. This was here first time she was seeing Barron in a Golden State uniform. (I keep thinking about the Euthanasia Day scene from Death Race 2000)
-Do you think Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki communicate with each other on their matching Sidekicks?
