I don’t know if you all knew this, but the Celtics won the NBA Championship! As the resident NBA posting Lady, I feel remiss that I didn’t post about this last week! But oh well. Congrats Celtics! Now I must also apologize to the Celtics franchise and their fans. I had them pegged to lose to the Lakers. Not that I wanted them to lose (as I hate the Lakers), but they had just played so inconsistently! Heck, Atlanta took them to seven games! So I’m sorry KG, Paul, Ray. I’m sorry Boston. I should have kept the faith. You deserved to win. Now please, if you don’t mind, could you keep the douchey fandom to a minimum? Nothing is worse than an asshat, cocky, Boston fan. (Except maybe an asshat, cocky Yankees fan…)
Earth shattering news here friends: Rafael Nadal has been harboring a secret girlfriend for THREE YEARS! UGH. WHAT? WHY GOD WHY? I wrote in a previous post that Rafa was one of the top 3 athletes it would kill me to see get hitched. Well he’s not married, but 3 years? Sounds pretty serious. Turns out she’s from his home town and totally normal and not a wannabe model/soap star/pop singer. So all things considered, I only want to kill myself a little… :(
There is a video making the rounds on the internet showing Shaq rapping (and not well might I add) about Kobe Bryant. ( I would post it if I had any idea how to do that, but I mean crap, it’s even on ESPN, you can find it!) The Diesel has some less than flattering things to say about the Mamba. For one, he blames Kobe for his impending divorce. Kobe apparently called out Shaq during the whole “I didn’t rape a Colorado woman” episode, saying he should have just paid her not to say anything, a la Shaq. Now personally, I blame Shaq’s divorce on his actual CHEATING, not Kobe’s comments about it, but what do I know? What is really funny about this story is that I read about it first on TMZ. Seriously. The video gossip site. Hilarity.
In soccer news, Portugal is out of Euro 2008 and Cristiano Ronaldo has yet to officially make his opinion known as to where he would like to play next year. Now for awhile (the way he was making it sound) I thought he got to like pick where he played. That HE had control over his destination. Turns out, he does not. In fact he’s just a commodity, which Man U can sell (or more likely NOT SELL) as they choose. So all his posturing about “deciding” where he will play is kind of BS, and honestly getting really old at this point. I love him. I want to make sweet sweet love TO him. But if he doesn’t shut his yap soon I may just… well… never mind. Look at that picture. He can be as annoying as he wants to be!
