General Observations and Complaints



The last two weeks has been nuts for me! First, I was in Orlando at the PGA Merchandise Show and then in Tampa during Super Bowl weekend. While I was in Florida I ran into Golf Girl and BJ. I was pretty excited to actually see people in person that I had only known online. I got back in to Los Angeles on Monday night and immediately had a big project that I had to finish. Today I finally get to take a breather!

I've been keeping up as well as possible and falling asleep/waking up to SportsCenter so I'm not totally out of the loop. I thought I'd take today to make some observations, point you to some info, and complain about Manny Ramirez again.

Golf: If you haven't been to the Golf WRX website and are a golf fanatic then you are missing out. It has to be the largest online community for golfers around the world. I was in Orlando covering the PGA Show for them along with five other Golf WRXers. All of our pictures are in the threads here. I contributed some of the equipment, 95% of the fashion and accessories, and all of the Ian Poulter fashion show.

WNBA: Lisa Leslie has decided to retire from the WNBA. Lisa has been the face of women's basketball for the last decade in the eyes of many. We'll miss you, Lisa! Will there be an actual ceremony to pass the torch to Candace Parker? That would rock!

Lip Service: The Dodgers are allegedly actively pursuing Manny Ramirez. Yeah, and I'm a Boston Red Sox fan. Seriously, is this the way to keep the issue in the news so the McCourts can label themselves heroes when they resign him? Guess what, greedy folks? Angelinos are losing jobs in record numbers. Attendance just may suffer this year. Let me guess, you're still going to raise parking rates another $5 and claim poverty otherwise so that you can raise ticket prices. Yes, I'm bitter...

Thanks For Nothing
: Thank you, Mr. Beckham. I just want you to know how much I appreciate that my local news has been filled with your family's every move for the last year and a half and you are now tossing us aside. Los Angeles was more than patient and good to you and your wife. Now, you insist on going back on your commitment and heading back to Europe. Pardon us for being a giant metropolitan area where there is more to do than just watch soccer. We have other sports, entertainment, outdoor activities year round, and millions of residents. Did you not get enough attention? Aww, poor baby.

Manny just needs to sign with someone. I am also don't know why everyones making a big deal out of Kobe Bryant and Lebron James games at MSG. 61 is great don't get me wrong and a triple double hardly ever happens ( though a coworker told me today they took away one of Lebron's rebounds), anyway I am tottaly out othe basketball loop but I know the Knicks really suck. When Jordan and Magic Johnson had crazy high stats at MSG the Knicks had good teams. So I don't think you can compare whats happening now to what happened then. And you know the Knicks are piss when they are cheering MVP for Kobe. Fans in the Garden never cheered for Jordan or Reggie Miller.
