As I am sure many of you know, the Lakers are down 0-2 in their playoff series. Laker fans are obviously gravely concerned. I, however, think it is freaking hilarious.
In my pre-Bloguin life, I was actually a Laker blogger, running LakersOfFire.com. I like to consider this my “gay for pay” stage as I was not AT ALL a Lakers fan. My true allegiance lies with the Golden State Warriors, my true feeling for the Lakers were a mix of contempt and, well, what’s a nice way to say “deep-seeded, soul-wrenching hatred?” Honestly, I hated the Lakers, but I really thought it would be an interesting writing challenge to blog full-time about a team that I wasn’t a fan of. Considering that I found so many Laker fans to be myopic homers, I thought I might be able to carve out a nice niche for myself, and I actually kind of did.
The only problem was that I think I might’ve damned my soul to eternal damnation in the process. That’s why I declined to keep my Lakers blog alive when Fanball went belly up and Bloguin swooped in to dig me out of the wreckage.
Now, to repent for my past sins, I have just one thing to say about the Lakers losing the first two games of their playoff series against the Mavericks despite being the prohibitive favorites to win it al’, and that is “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!”
Ah, I feel so much better now. Now, I’ll go finish my penance by saying twelve “Pau Gasol is playing like he has sand in his cervix”-es.
The failure is just so funny.
Here are a few other topics for you to discuss amongst yourselves:
- Hey, did you hear Osama Bin Laden is dead? Crazy stuff. Too bad it is all made up, just like Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate and Harvard diploma.
- Somehow South Park is in its 15th season and remains one of the most ingenious comedies in television. I am both confounded and awestruck by this.
- Am I the only one that fails to understand why non-Mexicans get so excited to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Is it just because I’m not an alcoholic?
Or just feel free to bring up a non-Angels topic of your own. I don’t really care (as long as you keep it clean) because it’s Friday.
