The Weak Ender: Lakers

Alright, I will have more latter, but I know that Dr. Doug, Reader Matt P. and Charlie Murphy won't start their day until they see some hottie.

I have some work to do, but promise to be back later. In the meantime, we lean on the comment section.

UPDATE:

Sorry for the delay. But before we get started, does anybody know who played Rue McClanahan's husband on Maude and Gary Coleman's father on Diff'rent Strokes?

Just asking.

GOING TO piggyback off The Hatriot's comment on a previous post, there is no reason to get too excited over the Lakers' win on Thursday night. Even with Phil Jackson's 47-0 record when his teams win Game 1.

The real key here is Game 2. The Lakers cannot allow the Cellbitch to return home with a split, and the potential to close the series out in Boston. This just cannot be done. But if the Lakers want to rebound and play defense they way they did on Thursday night, this becomes less of a concern. But you cannot expect Ray Allen to get into foul trouble every night.

I had some concerns about the Lakers coming into this series, based on what happened in the past. But the Lakers look more mature, and as a friend pointed out, the Lakersr know what they need to do to win. Ron Artest is annoying Paul Pierce who acts like a bully to smaller small forwards.

So far, so good though.

THE KURT Warner Machine was in Chiefs camp over the past couple of days. But before there is any hysteria from other football sites ready to claim this is an indication of the retired QB’s return to the NFL, let’s put it in context.

Warner was a guest of coach Todd Haley, as the two grew close during their tenure in Arizona. Haley, of course, was Warner’s offensive coordinator during the Cardinals’ run to Super Bowl XLIII two seasons ago. So Warner was doing a solid for his friend, taking some time to speak to the Chiefs about what it takes to be great (via the team’s official site).

“I’m telling you Kurt Warner is as good as they come,” Haley said. “I’m not trying to embarrass him, but this is a special, special human being, and I think he’s been pretty well-represented. He’s the type of person that when you’re around, and I said this to a bunch of guys yesterday, he makes you a little better person and makes you a little more accountable for yourself.”

So watching practice, did Warner have a twinge to get out on the field? The quarterback told his Twitter followers absolutely not.

“Sat and watched a whole practice today and not one time did I want to get out there and play… would say I retired at the right time!” Warner wrote.

AND FINALLY ...

The Angels at .500? Believe it!

Now wait just a minute here. I have a pretty good excuse for missing these bits.
