Sports and girl talk = Fun, fun, fun!

I went out with my friend, Teri, this weekend.  She and I are huge sports fans (i.e. primarily basketball).  We actually care about the game.  We're also girls, so girl talk is a large part of our night when we get together.  As we watched the Knicks defeat the Wizards and the Lakers battle the Bulls, I started to get a little bored. 

Ever heard of the game, FMK?  Well, depending on how old/hip you are you may have no idea what I'm talking about and that's just fine with me.

As we rooted for the Lakers, we spent time coming up with different combinations of 3 and laughing.  ****  It's all pretend, people.  Let's face it, we're probably never going to FMK any of the people suggested.  It's just a game, but it's funny just how different peoples tastes can be.  As we spent the night laughing about rumors we've heard, providing our reasoning, and trading stories, the night picked up.  ****  Actual discussions and decisions aren't important and will not be shared, so if you're looking to find the outcomes in this blog, you're going to be disappointed.

Here's one discussion that I found interesting, and that I couldn't believe.  We disagreed on Rick Fox.  She couldn't understand the appeal.  Seriously?!?!  Evidently my friend is blind.  Rick Fox is gorgeous.  I actually watched Vanessa Williams on Biography channel last week, because I knew at some point they'd have to show Rick.  In the show Vanessa talked about how she met Rick during the NBA Lockout in 1998.  ****  Ironically, that's the same year and same lockout that facilitated my relationship with my NBA-ex.  But I digress, and this isn't about him so let's keep it moving.

As my friend and I talked some more, I tried to explain to her that the appeal for Rick Fox is probably his strong face and that mega-watt smile.  Fox's mega-watt smile could probably only be rivaled by Chris Webber.  That's my opinion.  Agree to disagree.  Believe it or not, I think my explanations fell on deaf ears, and that's just fine with me.

Chris Webber.  I remember I was out with my friend earlier this year, and she was talking to Chris Webber.  Do you know how hard it was for me to NOT go over there and interject myself into the conversation?!?!  I'm sure I looked like a complete idiot just standing there watching them chat.  ****  Man, I hope I wasn't staring with my mouth open.  LOL.  When I relayed the story to her, she said she had no idea and that I should've just joined in the conversation.  Umm, yeah.  Too little too late.  But, now that I know ~ maybe next time! 
Girl talk and sports...  Good times!

Speaking of Girl Talk, here's a TLC present for you...
