Here I come to save the day. That means that Mighty Mouse is on his way. Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right, Mighty Mouse will join the fight. On the sea or on the land, he gets the situation well in hand. -Mighty Mouse Theme
The NBA post season will before you know it. No more monkey business. Brass Monkey business. That funky Monkey business. Time for growed folks business. NBA playoff basketball business. Win or go home! I love this game. I love it when those wily old veterans climb aboard. Roll up, roll up for the mystery tour. Roll up we’ve got everything you need. Roll up, satisfaction guaranteed. The magical mystery tour is hoping to take you away. Calgon, take me away. The Grizzlies are hoping Jason Williams can take them away. Take them away to the Promised Land. Make them leaders of the band. Give them a great big helping hand. Hamburger helper helps her hamburger help her make a great meal. White Chocolate got me thinking. He got me thinking, who else came aboard to make that push? Oooh, baby, baby. Baby, baby. Oooh, baby, baby. Baby, baby. Now push it. Push it real good. Who pushed it good? Who pushed it real good?

Just a short little quick one. Short like Herve Villechaize’s walking stick one. The plane! The plane! Last night, I was watching the Celtics/Kings game on a super secret website that plays such things. Like my main man Travis Bickle always says, ”a secret signal for the secret service.” So I’m watching the game, from the Sacramento feed, minding my own business, when who happens along? Bill Walton happens along. Bill Walton hops along. Hop Along Cassidy. Bill Walton hops along Cassidy and is gushing about the Kings. He’s gushing about the Kings as they come out to an early 54-45 halftime lead. Gushing and talking about what a great win this would be for Sacramento. Isn’t this the same Bill Walton who was part of the greatest third quarter teams of all time? A 1986 Boston Celtic team, that in Game 5 of the East semifinals against the Hawks, rolled off an unprecedented 25-0 run in the third quarter to clinch the series. Shouldn’t he know better? He didn’t. He didn’t and he Kings couldn’t hold on to a 10-point second-quarter lead and lost the game 95-90 at home to the Celtics. Wouldn’t you think now that Walton is part of the Sacramento broadcast team, he should have guessed this would happen? I mean, this wasn’t the first time something like this has happened. In fact, this was the tenth time this season that Sacramento lost in a game in which it held a double-digit lead. Shouldn’t he have known, like he says himself, this “is one of the true marvels, not just of basketball, or in America, but in the history of Western Civilization.” He should have at least known that it ties Washington for the most such losses in the NBA. He didn’t. Now you do and that’s something, ain’t it? Sure it is.
Peace out Kings. Six two and even!

Public Service Announcement: OK, here we go! A long one today. It started as five for Friday. Then went to four. Still too long. Cut it down to three. Hope you have some time today. Three for Friday. Let’s give this a try day. Easy as pumpkin pie day. Never say die day. Oh, what could have been. So my Red Sox signed JD Drew. Nancy Drew. DL Drew. In his rookie year, as a Cardinal, he was drawing comparisons to Stan the Man and the Mick. Then the injuries began. It got me to thinking. Yes, I do think sometimes. I got to thinking who else never realized their full glory due to injuries. Not career ending injuries. Not Cam Neeley injuries. Not Robert Edwards injuries. Not Dennis Byrd injuries. Darryl Stingley injuries. Not them. Nagging injuries. Always hurt injuries. Injuries that hampered what could have been the greatest of them all injuries. All right. Lets get started. These guys fell aparted. If it was war, they would have been purple hearted. Three injury riddled careers. (In no particular order. Read More »
