in chase of the ring…5 things that probably won’t get you engaged…

in a week or so the nba playoffs will be in full swing with 15 teams looking to obtain that ever elusive nba championship ring from mr. bryant and company…there’s just one small issue…those staple center dwellers (and clippers, you know we aren’t talking about you) aren’t looking to part with it easily…with that in mind, several teams spent the last several months making moves to improve their chances of landing that golden knuckle cozy…the folks down in south beach went out and grabbed dan gilbert’s best friend, the knicks picked up lala’s husband while okc acquired the man with no smile muscles

on the non-millionaire athlete side of town, there are others amongst us who are in search of an elusive ring as well…although no one is sure how the moves described above might work out, i’m quite sure that the tactics some of you are resorting to to achieve “championship status” will only leave you back in the lottery next season…

you think you know…but you have no idea…

over the weekend i was previewing the new miley cyrus album catching up on my blog perusal list and i came across our arch nemesis “for single girls” who seems to be hell bent on erasing all of the thorough dating advice we’ve been thrusting about the interwebs…in this particular post, she took offense to men providing advice on how to keep your own man from straying…which then led me to taking a offense to that…it quickly turned into a good ole fashioned take offense fest…i firmly believe that getting advice on how to get/keep/treat a man from a woman without one is like depending on jon kitna as your 2nd string qb asking lebron to put in your 2 week notice for you…it’s guaranteed to screw up your old situation and possible future situations and everyone will hate you…even your friends in relationships probably don’t really know how they trapped landed mr. right…

although i do agree that there is absolutely nothing you can do short of locking your mate in the trunk of a pre 1992 buick lesabre to prevent a mate that is actively searching for secondary action from cheating, i would definitely suggest that there are things you can do to turn that possible cheating pilot episode into a  full fledged syndicated occurrence… Read more of this post

nfl…we’ve missed you so…

i love summer but i hate summertime sportscenter, but with labor day peering at me through my rear windshield, i knew that it was only a matter of time before stuart scott would once again be discussing sports stories i cared about…then it happened…i was awakened this morning by words that made my attention stand at err…attention…it’s time…the nfl season starts tonight…this must be what love feels like…

i mean…baseball is cool if you like watching grown men in pajamas chew sunflower seeds and michael jackson their man handles for 3 hours…don’t get me wrong…throwing a 98 mph fastball is a credible athletic feat…but i would be more impressed if the pitcher had to deliver that 98mph fast ball to a catcher that was running at full speed while there was a 307 lb guy on 1st base who decided to charge him instead of heading over to 2nd…maybe that’s just me…but i probably would watch it if they brought steroids back…

but enough baseball bashing…because that’s not what i’m here for…it’s football season…time for:

– sundays full of couch hunching and remote fondling…

– me to lead my fantasy football league in ish talking…and nothing else… Read more of this post
