Okay - Here We Go Again...Go Lakers!

Well the NBA playoffs have begun and the Lakers are the home court favorites in the West. Just as last year the Lakers will have what should be an easy draw for the first round. But...a funny thing happened tonight - no one told the Utah Jazz to lay down and quit.

As usual the Lakers came out smoking and built a nice first-half lead. The problem is they play two half's in the NBA. The Lakers have a terrible habit of choking away leads in the third period. Tonight was no different. They were outscored by ten points in the third period and the Jazz made it a game.

Not to take anything away from the Jazz, but the Lakers should dominate this team. Turnovers in the form of ball handling were/are one of the Lakers biggest problems. The big three, Gasol, Odom, and Bynum need to stop the dribbling in the low post. They were pick-pocketed at least five times in the last period. Get the turnovers under control and sweep these guys Lakers.

The Lakers are up two games to none. Game three is next and it's in Utah. Winning on the road is the key to an NBA championship. We shall see what happens next.

A Hearty Fuck You To The Lame Stream Media!

Thanks to Greg Gutfeld and Red Eye for their comments. The press coverage of the Tea Parties was a disgrace. How in the hell can the LSM can deny they're puppets for the far-left in the U.S. anymore? Should I disregard my lying eyes? The assholes making the "Teabag" comments seem to have some intimate knowledge of the process, especially Anderson (In The Closet) Cooper.

Arghh Matey! Three Dead Pirates! Arghh!


Well here's some great news for a change. A team of U.S.Navy Seals have rescued Captain Richard Phillips from the Somali scumbags AKA Pirates. In the process, three Somalis were killed and one captured. Right now Fox News is buzzing with the story. What a wonderful Easter gift for the family of Captain Phillips.

On an interesting side note, the idiots (include me) who post and read the Rants and Raves section of Craig's List have been making some surprisingly intelligent comments. One poster pointed out the difference between the headlines on Yahoo and FOX News channel. Yahoo posted an article with the lead "US sea capt. freed from pirates in swift firefight". Just who the hell freed the Captain? The Somalis? It's quite ambiguous.

Update: Yahoo has changed the wording in their article. It now reads "US ship captain is freed when snipers kill pirates". It originally read as I posted above. It does credit Snipers for the action. I guess someone bitched. It's kind of sleazy how Yahoo would change the text. Hmm....

Now FOX posted a headline about the very same story that was written differently. FOX's headline read "Ship Captain Rescued From Somali Pirates". Maybe I'm nitpicking with the verbiage but I think it's interesting how the two headlines differ.

It remains to be seen what will happen to the surviving Pirate. The possibilities are he will be returned to the authorities in Somalia or he could conceivably be returned to the U.S. and tried here. Should he be tried in America I wonder how the ACLU would view the situation. I can't help but feel they would get involved in some way. Anyway, here's to a glorious Easter to Captain Richard Phillips, the U.S. Navy, and all Christians of the World. To the three dead Pirates - enjoy Paradise assholes!
