Lakers 100, Spurs 92.

That's it. Lakers in the finals. Happy, happy, happy.

The note these thieves left behind would make a great ad for the safe company.
Very neat interactive scary story webpage. I love scary stories.
This is very clever. For those of you who want to read at work without getting busted.
Pop & Lock. This guy has some of the most awesome dance moves ever.
Burn After Reading. That's a red-band trailer, which means there's some foul language in it. But it's the Coen Brothers, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and J.K. Simmons too (awesome), and it made me laugh out loud. So there's potential here.

Lakers 93, Spurs 91.

My magic died watching the game on Sunday, but it was back in effect tonight. Ok, there was some cheese at the end of that game, and all anybody's gonna talk about for the next two days is Joey Crawford officiating that game (for those that don't know he and the Spurs have a hate/hate relationship) and the fact that Brent Barry was unquestionably fouled at the end of that game. I have 4 points to make on this subject:

1. Barry wasn't shooting so it should have been a 2 shot foul, which would most likely have just tied the game.
2. Either way, the Lakers would have had a second left on the clock to take another shot.
3. The Spurs got every other call in the game, particularly in the first half, and shot 7 more free throws than the Lakers. The Lakers are not a physical banging team, and the Spurs are, so if anything that stat should be reversed, and that last non-call might have just been a makeup call for the rest of the game.
4. It's in the W column so I'm done worrying about it.

Lakers 89, Spurs 85.

So, here's how powerful I've become (in my own mind). I missed the first half of the Laker game because I thought it started later than it did. When I arrived it was the start of the third quarter, the Laker's were down 8, and as I watched that lead crept up to 19.

But as I continued to watch Kobe came alive (he had 2 points when I started watching, 27 when the game ended), and the Lakers took over. As you can see from the above score, they're now 9-0 when I watch them play.

Let me bask in my purple and yellow glory, and let's move on to some linkage.

Lakers 108, Jazz 105.

It really took all I had to will that win out in Utah. The Lakers are now 8-0 when I watch and 0-2 when I don't. Seriously, I'm not missing anymore games.

That being said I have nothing to post.

Nothing but one movie.

Lakers 111, Jazz 104.

Even though there's a huge storm going overhead right now, and I probably shouldn't even have my computer on, I can't pass up the opportunity to point out that the Laker's are now 7-0 in games that I watch and 0-2 in games that I don't. Yes I have this much power. Apparently. Eli is going to make me watch game 6 with a gun to my head.

Lakers 120, Jazz 110.

So, I went to watch this game with Travis and Eli at BB Rovers, and I made a comment that had Travis laughing and he insisted I add it to the blog page so he could remember it later. Though I'm not sure how funny it's going to be in text...

So, they were showing Jordan Farmar's stats to point out how much they'd increased from last season to this season and I told Travis, "He's increased his output in every category including number of years played in the NBA."

Which Travis thought was delightful. So there you go.
