When Heidi was here, on her birthday, we went out to Anaheim to watch the Tigers play the Angels.

I like to point.


I eternally remain ever-so-amazed.

Do not focus on the finger, or you will miss all the heavenly glory. :D

Actually, it is a true optical illusion.

My hand may appear small next to my enormous skull.

In reality, my hands are disproportionately very large.

Why? Did you have a fit of self-consciousness?

Besides, you know journals are very self-centered. Me, me, me, and by the way, me. :D

'Sheed is a 50/50 situation in my mind.

Does he want to fit into the long-term plan of Detroit?

The better question is, which 'Sheed shows up in bad times?

If it's the 'Sheed that set the record for tech fouls, then maybe we should be happy we had him when we did . . .

I still think we ought to make a serious offer to Kobe.

We can't make that decision until we know if he's going to jail or not.

Sheed will make the decision after he talks to the family. He needs to pick the place that's best for them.

Here's the thing:

And by 'thing,' I mean 'Sheed's everything.

He is an exceptional basketball player.

However, at this point in his career, he cannot dominate in every game as a default.

If 'Sheed wants franchise alpha-player dollars, he'll have to go elsewhere.

In no other industry do I see players turn down contracts like pro players.

I mean, the guy will be making millions in any contract offer.

Is the largest contract the best idea?

Certainly, in Grant Hill's case, it wasn't.

The only guy I'd consider giving a huge amount to play would be Kobe.

I guess....but I don't know how we'd take Kobe. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

I'm getting tired...and my day is FAR from over. I've got the open house tonight, babysitting all weekend. Hopefully I will be able to get some sleep in between everything. I also have to go through some of my stuff...I've been behind on shredding and getting rid of clothes that have holes I can't sew!!!! We'll see how much I get done...

We shall see.

Kobe's a luxury, but he could fit in a starting Detroit squad.

It would be at the expense of Tayshaun, in such a scenario, also given Rasheed stays.

The sleep should come easy for you.

Yeah, I noticed that too . . .

I assure you, I cannot control the elements. The finger is also not a top-secret laser weapon.

I'm guessing I was in the motion of waving the finger when Brad took the photo.

Although, it looks cool, being at the Angels game, having a glowing finger . . .

I should wear my Freddie Kruger mask to a sporting event.

Jesus, Raul's a travelling man.

Actually, he was a Dodger before any other team.

I was shocked to note that Vlad Guererro was on Anaheim.

Also, there are a handful of ex-Tigers playing for the two valley teams.

Well, i wouldn't care if he got traded or his contract expired and he moved on.. but..
http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/content?statsId=5090

this is the story of The scum. What happened in a nutshell is he was being sued by some guy in the Dominican republic, so he deceided to sit out the rest of the season to "protect his family from harm" but..a couple weeks later he signed with anahiem. BS. Crap. Wrong. The DOPE didn't want to play for the pirates is all. MAJOR DOPE.

Of course he didn't want to play for the Pirates.

To me, like the Tigers, the Pirates seem to be controlled by an owner for which the entire front office seems to be a hassle.

That brings up a great subject of note . . . the 'small market' excuse for baseball.

I don't buy it.

In fact, I don't buy a lot of excuses with the sport.

The prime reason which makes the most sense, the one where you will not hear come from the mouths of those responsible, that would be the . . . .

Let me put it this way. People are happy with Stern in the NBA, and people are also happy with Tagliabue in the NFL.

Yet, people complain quite often about Bud Selig, and they also dislike Bettman in the NHL.

I think Bettman's the NHL head . . .

You're only as strong as your weakest link, but also, it helps to have a strong leadership.

In the case of baseball, I clearly do not buy 'small market' excuses.

Look at Detroit for a clear example. While Detroit is not really a 'small' market . . . Pittsburgh might actually be smaller, but my estimation of the metro Detroit area population is probably around 4-5 million. That's a pretty large market to me.

The Wings and Pistons have enjoyed frequent success. Also, the Lions stink, but they draw great crowds.

The Tigers are not a small market team.

Any lack of wanting to play for Pitt is probably due to a disagreeable ownership.

I love the first one.

Thank you for the excellent memory lane trip, back to "Fantasy Island" and Tattoo!
