Nowhere special, that’s where. I’ve been busy with work, and honestly, I don’t have that much to report on.
The fact that I’ve been busy has also meant the halting of my site. Once again, I have proven that unless someone else is pushing me, personal projects won’t progress the way I envision them and my deadlines are not met. The same concept applies to my aspirations of building a desk for my apartment next year. (I still say I’m going to do it though).
Of course, now I’m thinking about the last two weeks, and I realize that there are a few things I could have written about.
The first, of course, being the absurdly surreal LeBron James Decision. I truly don’t have any idea how the whole NBA free agency thing got so out of hand, but The Decision, along with its aftermath, has once again proven that David Stern isn’t trying to run an athletic league, but rather an entertainment industry. I’m not going to say much more about the NBA and David Stern, that’s something for another time. And I’m not going to sit here and bash LeBron, because I don’t really want to right now, and I think what Barstool Sports said covers it all. But I do want to give a ton of credit to Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cavs, for saying what he did. Yes, it was way over the top. But the unbelievable assertion with which he went out after Cleveland was devastated by the decision that impressed me the most. He went all out, leaving nothing unsaid, truly saying what was on his mind, which he should certainly be able to do. And of course, every analyst at ESPN is calling him immature and the letter outrageous, Jesse Jackson thinks Gilbert is a slave master, and David Stern fines him $100,000. Dan Gilbert is the owner of a professional franchise, and he can’t send out a strongly worded letter to his fans after a star player leaves without getting fined and a crapload of criticism? The NBA (and David Stern) is a joke.
My favorite part now is how Cavs fans are offering to help pay the $100,000 fine. It’s like Cleveland vs. the NBA and David Stern. I would donate a couple bucks to that cause in favor of Cleveland. And you know that I’m pulling hard for the Cavs next season.
The second item of interest for me was that I began my internship at the NCCJ last Wednesday. I moved around some of their Facebook stuff to streamline it all, and got them a Twitter account. It’s a slow start, but it was certainly a good way to get me acquainted with the organization. So check them out on Facebook, and BECOME A FAN OF THE NCCJ.
Third thing was that I went to a concert this past Sunday. 311 with The Offspring. Unfortunately, I only saw the last three Offspring songs before they left, which sucked because they were pretty good. And I was really disappointed with 311. They didn’t play a couple of my favorites, and I really didn’t know a lot of what they did play. So overall, not the best concert. But we still had a pretty good time.
