I grew watching Stephon Marbury on TV. I’ve seen him play live. When he went through some tough times and disappeared to China, I thought that that would be it for him and I’d never hear from him again.
But in five years, he’s found happiness in China. He loves it there. The people love him. And he is doing what he loves. It’s not the glamorous route we expect to see from big time NBA stars. He shined so bright but burned away so quickly. Yet I think this is where he is shining the brightest. He is enjoying himself and really immersed himself in the Chinese culture.
He doesn’t plan on leaving China and it’s totally cool to see him enjoying himself. This musical look phenomenal too. It is a little corny, but whatever. I was entertained.
It may not make sense to us and it’s still odd to see him like this. But you know what? It’s cool with me. Good for you Steph. You do you and you enjoy yourself doing it.
I have friends who bowl frequently. They actually have their own ball, their own shoes and everything else. The other week I asked one of my friends which was harder in bowling: the perfect game or the perfect 20?
We all know the perfect game is essentially bowling 12 consecutive strikes. The perfect 20 is a concept I think about often but never see. The perfect 20 is a game in which the goal is to score 20 points. But in order to do that, you must knock down the 7-pin on the first roll of a frame, then follow it up by knocking down the 10-pin. That’s it. All 10 frames, you must do just that.
My buddy says the perfect 20 is harder. It makes sense. You have to bowl the ball 20 times compared to the 12 in the perfect game. Accuracy is much harder for it. But I still am not convinced. What do you think?
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the ugly sweaters. We have seen all the stories about them.
Yet somehow, the NBA ones are the worst. Since the Christmas uniforms are ugly every year, it just makes sense that these are equally ugly.
The fact that these are player names, team logos, lots of distracting designs make this the ultimate ugly sweater. Check them out here. What do you think about them?
Here are 10 thoughts after watching the Week 11 games from Sunday.
1- Even though the 49ers won thanks to Eli Manning and his five interceptions, the 49ers don’t look strong. Last week a few things had to go right just for them to win. This week, they couldn’t find much separation from the Giants in their win. Even though they now have won two in a row, it’s not a very impressive win streak. The defense has played better but the offense is still a mystery. The running game looked OK for the most part but the passing game is still a work in progress.
Could it be more Jim Harbaugh future coaching distractions? I don’t know. But a win is a win until you start realizing that a trend appears. Then these wins are just concerning. What are the 49ers going to do about this offense?
Last night I drove up to Bakersfield. I had never been there before and it was a two-hour drive I thought I would dread. Luckily I was going there because the ECHL Bakersfield Condors were hosting a Seinfeld night. I just had to go. My old college buddy Mark lives out there so it was good to catch up and enjoy some good Seinfeld fun.
Before that, we stopped by Red House BBQ in Tehachapi. Delicious!!!
Brisket with mac & cheese, fried pickles and a piece of the Indian taco bread.
After that, we chilled for a bit before heading out to the game. I didn’t know what to expect. They had a rickshaw race and a costume competition that never actually happened. It was a bummer that not a lot of people showed up. Do they not like Seinfeld?
Adidas is terrible. Here is another example of why.
My WrestleMania ticket I will end up selling.
I knew that WrestleMania tickets were going on sale today. It was actually the presale. But with presales, you know that if you can get your hands on a code, then you are good to go. I didn’t have a code. But of course, that’s easy to find. I hopped on Google and Twitter, did a search and found the codes (there were like five different ones) I needed for the presale.
One of the toughest things when trying to buy popular tickets is the system you have in place to get them. The first thing I had to make sure was that my Internet was working and that I had both my Chrome and Firefox browser up. Firefox seems to work better with Ticketmaster. I don’t know why.
Secondly, you have to have a buddy system. If you’re trying to buy the tickets on your own, it’s harder to maximize the potential tickets. Luckily, I bought tickets and my friend bought tickets. Now I have extras I don’t need and I can resell them for a profit.
