Yee-freaking-haw – it’s time for the Lakers’ Second Annual Quest To Catch The Beelzebubs of Basketball, er, Boston Celtics In NBA Championships, also known as the playoffs. Yep, it’s now okay to come to after another pointless NBA regular season, conveniently shortened by a couple months thanks to a lockout we’ve all forgotten.
And this go-round, as expected, we have some exciting new guests. Please welcome to the dance floor the professional sporting world’s former answer to The Twelve Stooges, “yourrrrrrr” Los Angeles Clippers!!! (Actually, the Clips have really always been about one Stooge, but since he owns the team, and his buffoonery has been so, uh, buffoonarific, even all-stars like Danny Manning and Dominique Wilkins have staggered under his buffoonishness.)
Going into the season, we told you SoCal’s two NBA entries were more or less evenly matched, and that’s more or less how things played out this season, with the Lakers (thankfully) taking the season series and, by the skin of Kobe Bryant’s shin, the Pacific Division.

It all opens up on Wednesday, September 5th, with the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants taking on their division rival Dallas Cowboys. The first Sunday night game features Stuman’s Steelers heading to Denver to face the now Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos. Monday night? Opening weekend double header once again.

For your enjoyment, here’s Batman running onto the field at the Baltimore Orioles home opener the other day. Nice tackle by the cop!
We’d like to present you with evidence that either (1) people have some serious issues with Big – sorry that’s B1G – Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who was one of the dudes who spearheaded the creation of the college football trainwreck known as the BCS or (2) Big Jim has begun a fascinating new career in which he can express himself in so many different ways.
We’re guessing that (1) is the correct answer, but Jimbo’s praying that it’s (2). If it is, Jimbo’s just learned that his dream job is a reality.
I was watching a spring training game on cable this weekend when I saw that logo above on one of the teams’ hats. I thought to myself, “Are they playing a college team or something?”.
