Went to the Laker game last night. I’ve got to say, that’s about the pinnacle of sporting events for me. First off, you’ve got the circus atmosphere of the players. I mean, what planet do these guys come from? You just don’t see human beings this size walking down the street. Being close to the court gives you a perspective of their size that you don’t get from TV. They’re REALLY tall and gangly. So you’ve got the giant body thing going on- and that’s plenty weird enough – then they start to move and cut and shoot. It’s hard to get your head around seeing 7 foot guys move with the coordination and quickness of 6 foot guys. Amazing. They make the court look like my little driveway. And if that isn’t enough entertainment, there’s the people watching at Staples Center. The whole Hollywood enchilada. You’ve got Jack right over there talking to the opposing team’s coach, there’s Beckham styling it out courtside, oops, almost spilled my drink on Andy Garcia, hey Leo loved your last flick, and don’t even get me started on the Laker girls. I could get used to going to these games on a regular basis. Oh yeah, and the Lakers are REALLY, REALLY good.

    How about Ari Gold?

  5. Brent Mayne says:

    no Ari, no Vince, no Turtle, no Drama. The one that really crushed me though was no Sloan.
