The Lakers are the NBA Champions, and I argue with a Celtics fan after Game 7
During the games, when I watch from home I usually am logged into my Twitter account, to further entertain myself and read other people's witty comments during the game. I follow about 100 other people. If you're sports-related and you make me laugh, chances are I follow you.
I follow TheBigLead on Twitter, and towards the end of the game they tweeted: Kobe makes 2 FTs. Boston misses, Fouls ... Lakers make 2 FTs? Maybe? #soyouresayingtheresachance
Now, being that I knew the spread I knew exactly what they were talking about!
Oh well, at least I cleaned up nicely at the craps table, to compensate for the bad bet. At the end of the day, the missed free throws hurt me, but the craps table loved me so who cares! :-P
Me: i'm an old school lakers fan, just anti-kobe ~ so play nice or get off my page
Cry Baby: Traitor Go White Sox huh?
Cry Baby: In the end, Lakers are still 2nd best. Bite me.
Me: i can do whatever i want bc it's MINE ~ that's the beauty of it! and when you do anything remotely interesting that draws my attention, i'll be sure to give you some pointers on it too :)
Cry Baby: That's fine. I remember being remotely interesting when you posted me on your blog when the C's beat the Cavs this year. Congrats, your favorite team won the title this year!!!! Good for you!!!!!
Me: nice try - thewirk.com superfan, but you're obv keeping up bc you knew i hit 71 venues and even my mom doesn't know that. lmao!!! sooooo, thanks for your support and have fun at work tomorrow. i'm gonna hit orbitz since i have about $700 to play with and even though i lost, my life is still better than yours right now. keep on truckin' :-P
Me: not sure when your boss wants you at work, but if you're gonna add prayer to your routine, you should go to bed soon. have a great night!
My favorite Tweets from the game:
THEWIRK: now begins the slowest, most boring time of the year - the lull where there is only #baseball, and everyone holds their breath for #football
sportspickle Is Bill Russell getting so old he thinks he played for the Lakers?
--- Good to know that I wasn't the only one who thought it looked strange to see Bill Russell with all the Lakers.
THEWIRK: is it bad that i chuckled that ron ron thanked his psychiatrist... what a game though ~ he was stellar!
--- You have to give Ron Artest his props. He played HUGE.
sportspickle: And Scalabrine is back in the game. Shelden Williams should probably retire now.
THEWIRK: my twitter feed has "brian #scalabrine" trending and not "justin #bieber"... the world is coming to an end!
Now like, I tweeted we wait for football and enjoy the summer with baseball... Take me out to the ball game!
