Sometimes Blogging Goes on Hold

The BEST Vanity Plates Evar Golly! I know that workload sometimes ebbs and flows... but it’s really ebbing right now. Or is it flowing? Whichever, I’ve been busy at work doing a ton of stuff. Hopefully, soon, I’ll be able to share some of the things we’re working on. In the meantime, just trust me that they’re all very cool. VERY.

In my off-time, which there hasn’t been much of, I’ve run across these things that I feel are time-worthy:

Dream Team Redux
If anyone watched the FIBA Americas championship last week, like I did, then you’ll know that the US team is easily the favorite to win gold at next summer’s Olypmics. Seriously. This team put the smack down on everyone they faced, and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. To see 90% of today’s elite NBA stars playing what All-Star basketball should be isn’t only entertaining, it’s a reaffirmation that basketball is the United States’ sport. And I’m not the only one that thought we played extremely well.

Oklahoma’s New Vanity Plates
If this isn’t the most redneck and overly patriotic license plate you can get... then I’m not sure what is. The sad thing, if every single one of you Oklahomans don’t get one, I’ll think a LOT less of you and will probably sue you for $63,000,000,000 billion dollars, like this guy did to Michael Vick. Grow up and be American, would you?

Seth’s State of Sports
Bowling started two weeks ago – and I haven’t bowled a single frame yet. I’m playing kickball – our team is good at drinking, not winning. Fantasy Football starts this weekend – it’s been too long.

agreed, fiba was awesome. though argentina was without their top six players, and france will be good as well i still say we bring home gold finally. also i wouldn't say this team is even close to 90% of todays elite players, i'd say closer to a third. but still, amazing to watch.

oh and my only regret is that i have boneitis.

I guess that depends on how you're defining the top players comment. I was saying on a level of basketball knowledge. It's not just the athleticism or creating shots for yourself (Gilbert Arenas) -- it's more of an overall feel for the game. Jordan could take control of the game if needed, so could Kobe. But Bird, Stockton, Magic, Mullen, etc., were what made the original Dream Team super. Role players that were at the top of their respective class.

Is Deron Williams a good point guard? Yes. Is Tyson Chandler a good center? Defensively, you bet. Do they have a role on this team? My opinion is not as much as a Kidd or a Duncan does/should. Chris Paul, Williams and Chandler will get there eventually -- but I think this team deserves more seasoned vets that can still fill the bucket. Please leave out Ogden and Durant.

The team will be shifted a little prior to next summer, but I think a majority of the players on the floor this past month were some of the best the US could choose from. Colangelo is pretty smart and has finally put us on the right track.
