Quite a bit has happened since I wrote about basketball. The All-Star game was played, I saw Nicole before she went to Arizona, and I played basketball for the first time in the new year this past Saturday. All three of these events don’t seem related but in terms of how I have viewed the NBA recently they are. Continue reading
I didn’t want to do this so soon, another post about Batman? However, when Scott Snyder is staking his claim as the best Batman writer of the moment I have to say something. Continue reading
I had my Saturday planned from start to finish last night. The plan for the day was: hot yoga, Chipotle, writing/homework/reading, Flames/’Nucks, and movie before bed. Of course, it would’ve been a good Saturday but Nicole texted me in the morning informing me that it was Hockey Day in Canada. Continue reading
Hey you, how about a little speculation with that chilly brew you are enjoying?
On Monday Nicole texted me a picture of this. What was first an innocent text sharing a funny picture turned into two and a half hours of me explaining Star Wars to her. The following is a transcript of our text conversation. Quick note, the order of texts sent and received have not been altered, as well as the texts themselves, also since I can’t hyperlink in texts, there will be no hyperlinks in the post. For all things Star Wars and the place I went to look up certain facts, such as the Jedi Code, Yoda and Palpatine’s origin, go here. Last note, since we didn’t plan to have a talk about Star Wars all of this is from memory. If I got some facts wrong, don’t lose your fan boy/girl mind. Enjoy. Continue reading
Last Wednesday the Toronto Raptors traded Ed Davis and Jose Calderon for Memphis Grizzlies swingman Rudy Gay. Bringing Gay to Toronto seemed like a void on the wing was filled since the Raptors shipped out Vince Carter in 2005. I had a talk with my friend Brighton, who is one of the few people in my life who I know loves basketball as much as me. Our conversation about the trade kept gravitating back to the lack of wing threats since Vince was traded. Continue reading
Before we get to this week’s game I would like to address some things that Nicole brought up at the end of last week’s post:
Yes, I know who Don Cherry is…No, I do not know any of his catchphrases…I have no comment about The Decision…I do not take my comment back about luck because luck impacts every sport…I’m on a first name basis with Dion because it’s easier to type than Phaneuf…I’m skeptical of finding enlightenment by becoming a fan of the Oilers.
It’s one of life’s great questions. It’s right up there with ‘what shape is the sky?, ‘why is Tuesday night wine frowned upon?’, and ‘why does nail polish always have to chip?’. It’s profound. It’s major. This is life changing stuff right here.
