Je suis heureux

No, I'm not on any pharmaceuticals but I might be if this guy

helps us garner this Cthulhuforsaken burg's first championship in anything worth a damn since nineteen sixty-fucking-four. You lied, meteorological gestapo, it's February, so where's my cloud cover? The downside to such victorious basketballery that I had no hand in: I might have to rethink the automatic writing of 'filthy with lucre = scorn receptacle.'

As for scorn that I deserve as a woefully compensated library employee , be thankful, smiters of sport, for if there had been no trade of precious gladiatorial assets, you would all be saddled with riffery.

Under my thumb
The town who once had me down
Under my thumb
The teams who once pushed me around

Oops, wrong song. It was either that or original verse. Giddyup.

I hope that your new man helps you win your championship!
How's the Raptors doing? I haven't been paying attention....

King James will reign in NYC for the 2010-11 NBA season and a few years beyond. I don't like the idea of them pinning their hopes on the best player in the league right now, but money always talks and the Knicks have made the moves to make sure they can pay him.

I just love the Vibraphone in that song (by the Stones) a personal favorite. Sorry, was this post about Basketball?

Mary Ellen said...

What? You choose to write about basketball when you could be writing about the Olympic ice skaters? You pinko commie! :-D

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, surprisingly, yoosguys are above .500. Sure, you'll get waxed in the first round and will lose Bosh come July, but hey.

spartacus, what moves are those? Joining a roster with the following players under contract: Wilson Chandler, Toney Douglas, Danilo Gallinari, Jordan Hill and Marcus Landry? Positively screams championship. Where's the D? Don't think David Lee won't want to finally get paid on the plus side of 10 million. I'd put my money down on even the Sterling-led Clips before Noo Yawk. But since we're going to win the title, it's moot.

holte, a little of this, a little of that.

nunly, let me know when there's naked lady ice skating, then I might watch. Thanks to you chicks, they don't show the early round hockey games!

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Is that a Theremin in the overature, or are you just happy to have another sports season to whine about?

WTF Mr. Anonymous swine above me quit spamming!

ok ok, so I haven't been watching the games, but I'll try to pay a little more attention just for you Randal so I can laugh in your face when your team looses... and will I pick favs? Hell no.

Demeur said...

That's it Graves! You've jinxed em now. It'll be swine flu for James right at the critical playoff game and it's all your fault.
Are there no decent teams left to root for?

MRMacrum said...

Basketball season - just some filler while the Boys from bigs warm up in the bigs. I hope Cleveland does well though. You folks could use some good news.

Mary Ellen said...

Randal- I think the early round hockey games are on cable...the USA channel (go figure). This afternoon they're showing the Curling events..not hair curling, that's on another channel.

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, whining helps keep one warm during the cold winter months.

CJT, if my spam was sexy, I wouldn't mind, but it's always boring.

Don't worry, we'll be up 3-2 in the Finals then LeBron will break his leg.

demeur, or that.

mrmacrum, given that the Clowns are going to pass us another 10-loss season, Cavs are the last, best shot.

nunly, if curling is an Olympic event, then I think lawn darts should be as well.

Beach Bum said...

Hey curling give hope to every middle aged, overweight white guy that they too might be in the Olympics.

You're just a lazy guy who thinks he's too good to pick up a broom. ;-)

S.W. Anderson said...

C'mon, Randal, you're too well idjicated for this. A town is not a who. A team is not a who. They're both thats.

That said, good luck to your basketball team of choice.

Demeur said...

Well if this doesn't just chap your hide I don't know what will. Cleveland was rated one of the country's most miserable cities. This from Yahoo:

This year Cleveland takes the top spot in our third annual ranking of America's Most Miserable Cities. Cleveland secured the position thanks to its high unemployment, high taxes, lousy weather, corruption by public officials and crummy sports teams (Cavaliers of the NBA excepted).

Randal Graves said...

BB, an excellent point. Long live curling!

tom, hey commie, speak American!

nunly, shhh, I'm trying to sleep.

SWA, you're going to go grammar Nazi over comically altered Stones lyrics? Seek help today.

demeur, ha ha, I saw that, the subject of today's post!
