About My Book

Hey,

“Brought” to you by this.

About 9 months ago I made a mistake….

No not like that! I started posting my novel that I’m working on on this very blog.

I kind of regret that. I rushed some sh*t and it headed in the wrong direction.

I have realized 2 things, one is I won’t be posting on here…. However I will post excerpts if I really love what I wrote. The other thing is that I will be writing that again, and almost assuredly on this again.

As if you are a regular reader of this right?

About the Magician

Hey,

This entry is brought to you by this song here.

It might be late to talk about the Kris Humphries/Rajon Rondo fight seeing as it was nearly a week ago that it happened. Regardless, I’m going to touch up on that issue. I’m more going talk about how Rondo is going to be the rise or the fall of the Celtics.

First off, that “fight” was just a wrestling match between a guy who cares too much about his teammates and another player who is dirty and chippy. Rondo clearly cares more about his teammates than himself, he takes assists over open lay-ups, he will remember what you did to his player and make a fool out of you on the court, or he’ll make you look like a fool by beating you up even though that player is 6-7 inches taller than him. That other player will hard foul a legend, try to start a fight with a legend in the making and then get his *ss handed to him; and tweet about his “wounds” to add media outrage at the minor incident.

Rajon won the fight. Not only did he stick up for his teammates, but he showed that he’s not selfish. He had a record breaking pace of 10+ assists per game and was nearing the record for himself. He didn’t care about the numbers, he didn’t care about the ejection, the suspension, just about his teammates and his loyalty to them.

I don’t mind Rondo’s “recklessness.” I think it’s a good thing to have back in the NBA. The league is soft. When the 2 best players are friends with each other; what point is there to the games they’ll play? When everybody is friends with everybody in the league there’s no fire, there’s no interest. Guys like Kobe, Garnett, Rondo are guys that make the sport interesting.

Durant and Lebron make it entertaining. The way they score is phenomenal, but how they are friendly toward everyone (except those aforementioned) isn’t interesting. I want to root against those guys that are *ssholes to the other team, that are killers at heart. I want players like Bird and Jordan. I want those rivalries. They’ll have time to make friends when they retire.

Rondo is a guy everyone hates outside of the Boston fan base. He is mouthy, quick, obnoxious and extremely good at basketball. He is what you want in a basketball player. When other teams play him you see the hatred in their eyes toward him. And double the hatred in his eyes. He is a product of his mentors. Ray Allen showed him how to prepare like the best. Paul Pierce showed him how to be clutch. Kevin Garnett showed him how to play defense and how to be the thorn in the opponents’ sides. He learned from the best and is on his way to be one of them too.

Rondo is a breath of fresh, fresh air. His attitude and play are what will make this league interesting again. However he needs to bring his team to the playoffs then the veterans can shake off the dust and the Celtics can explode to the finals.

About Snowfall

Hey,

This entry is brought to you by this song here

We finally got snow in Durham!

Which means winter has arrived! And like most native new Englanders it’s the start of an exciting season. Snowmobiling, ice fishing, hockey and snowball fights are on their way.

More importantly than that, it’s time for Christmas and New Year’s Eve; the time of giving, receiving, and drinking. Usually following New Year’s Eve it is the time of headaches and broken resolutions.

Back to the Christmas thing though, what do you want for Christmas? Is it your 2 front teeth? A Susie-talks-a-lot? A beebee gun to shoot your eye out with? Or for you hippie freaks, is it “world peace?”

Whatever is on your wish list I hope you get it.

I know I’m just looking forward to being home having snow football games in my backyard with my brothers, making forts with my neighbors and later on playing zombies or Mario kart/super smash bros., for hours and hours on end. Then when their mom kicks us out of their house repeat the process. I’m also looking forward to coming inside from the frozen tundra that is my yard and having some nice warm cookies while my limbs thaw out by the fire.

— TWO MONTHS LATER–

God f*cking d*amnit!

It’s f-f-f*cking cold out! I have never wanted to have it be s-summer more than right n-now!

Everything is frozen, I’m pretty sure my windshield is just made of ice, no one can drive in this weather, whenever I leave my house my nostrils freeze; f*ck this weather, this season, this month… February sucks!

It’s this month in winter where everything turns to sh*t. It’s too cold out to leave your house. And when you do leave all you see is other miserable people out. Or couples. And when you’re a frozen Scrooge, it’s disgusting to see.

Plus the roads suck to drive on. And it’s f*cking cold!
