Bro For A Day



I’m a sports fan out of convenience.  I’ll be honest here.  My favorite thing about the Super Bowl are the commercials.  I go to baseball games for the hot dogs.  And I sometimes watch basketball because, frankly, I can name more of the players in basketball than I can in any other sport (that’s not saying a lot), and that fact makes me feel cool.  Since I’m from Los Angeles, my brother grew up watching The Lakers and Kobe was a household name, so I guess my scale of sports-watching has always been tipped in favor of The B-ball.

An unprecedented experience in my life, I, by choice, spent the good portion of yesterday at a Sports Bar watching The Game – I’ve never seen so many televisions in my life!  I met the boys (Chris, Brendan, and Ben) and brought my boys (Shawna) and we munched on nachos and fries and threw back some brewskis.  It seemed that Shawna and I were the only ones cheering on the Lakers.  Apparently everyone in New York roots for the underdog, and the Lakers are not it.  But our cheering musta worked, ’cause the Lakers won! 

I definitely hope to spend another few hours glued to ESPN, and eating wings with my boys, and I’m sure I will, since the Lakers are going on to the finals…or is it the championship?  Um, I’m still a little fuzzy on the details.  Three pointers!  Out of bounds!  Goooooo sports!
