Not a Sports Fan
I don't watch a lot of sports and if I do its usually pretty specific and rather obscure. I watch the Tour de France, if I've got it on a DVR, otherwise I'll follow the highlights on-line, but I don't follow other cycling events or even own a road bike. I'll watch MMA or strongman competitions if I happen across them. As far as the popular ones like football, baseball, NASCAR, hockey, golf, etc., I've probably watched about an hour's worth combined in the last decade. It's just not one of my interests.
However I do like basketball, specifically Lakers basketball. I've been a fan since I watched Magic Johnson when I was a kid growing up in LA. I've stuck with them ever since, in the good times and the bad and in between. I listened to both of Phil Jackson's books and took Skye down the Championship celebration parades on more than one occasion.
This, That, and The Other
Let's see Kobe missed out on taking the Scoring Title again by .1 point. Metta World Peace suspended for not being so peaceful. And the Lakers come out as the third in the West, pitting them against the Denver Nuggets.
W is for Win, Bynum gets an A+
Lakers' win Game 1 by more than a little, 103-88.
Andrew Bynum made playoff history by tying Hakeem Olajuwon's and Mark Eaton's playoff record of 10 blocked shots. He finished with 10 points, 13 rebounds and the aforementioned 10 blocks, registering the first triple-double of his seven-year career and the first triple-dip for the franchise since Magic Johnson did it against the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of the 1991 NBA Finals.
A nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon, especially because it was like a furnace outside.
