I'm near Canada.
Happy Boxing Day to you and yours.
Long Xmas Day . . . total awesomage.
I attended the Pistons Xmas game with my Heidi. They won!
Family festivities followed.
I called close friends.
My back is toast. Toast is cool, and I'll leave it at that.
I received the Criterion Collection of Rashomon and The Seven Samurai.
It would have been just as awesome if I received nothing but the presence of others.
This is me when I'm exhausted, and I'm busted, and I'm content.
Happy happy, joy joy!
Indeed on the price tags . . . man, they are worth every cent. I haven't purchased one yet that wasn't worth it.
When they go offline from Criterion, that's even better.
Some companies do put out better dvd editions on some movies, but it's rare that Criterion is out-done.
this golden state losing streak had me nut on myself several times this weekend. i hope it goes to double digits. i mean flashfire has to be shitting himself over this one. a 3-8 december so far. 5 in a row lost. 4 straight at home. this makes me happier than a pacers win. i mean flashfire was so confident about this team too. sure i said the pacers would be a 1 seed this year but who cares, his team won't even make the playoffs! at least the pacers aren't headed for the lottery. when they officially fall out of the tie for 8th i think a huge post is in order.
I don't think it could have gone worse from the point the Pistons toed with them @ Golden State.
2 wins out of their last 10. 1 against toronto, one against seattle that they could've easily lost. jason richardson is a huge kobe-esque ballhog but he doens't get to the line like kobe and iverson. 6th most shots attempted. 133 free throws attempted only. dirk has 196. i mean ray allen's considered a jumpshooter and he shoots just as many free throws as richardson, a glorified jumpshooter who can dunk for show. baron davis shoots 36% from the field. they just blow. 48 wins though.
Some of that is going to get a balance with some hefty win streak at one point, but the fact remains to all that GS doesn't have it up front to really make a dominant force.
J-Rich will team up with Baron to work out and be one of the better guard duos, so long as Baron's health holds up. That one, no one wants to bank on that, but Baron's defense and J-Rich's shooting will make a solid and disruptive force.
As for big men, Diogu and Biedrins . . . maybe. I like Diogu, but Troy Murphy and Mike Dunleavy are essentially the same guy . . .
They've been Foyled.
mike dunleavy's such a waste of a 3rd pick, especially since amare stoudemire was stil available. i really hope that baron stays healthy and they still win 38 games with him. screw flashfire. i watch way too much warriors on league pass now all because i want to see them lose. i should be watching more important games like that jazz-memphis thriller last night .
You should be watching what happens to our division, which could be a beatdown on the other divisions.
Western C's got a similar situation. You're right about Utah/Memphis . . . fucking crazy-nuts defense in the pyramid.
