San Antonio – Los Angeles

I’m watching San Antonio stomp the defenseless The Lakers in the Staples Center, 103-82. After The Lakers fell behind by 21 at the half, then Dwight Howard gets ejected early in the second half. The game was never really close.

In the second quarter, my son said “The Lakers have quit.” They sure did, as much as a team missing their starting backcourt trailing a series 0-3 could. Watching Dwight Howard descend into frustration was somewhat amusing. Friday night, he got pulled from a game after picking up an offensive foul, then he said something to Tim Duncan, who just laughed at him. If you watched this series at all, Duncan thoroughly abused Howard. I doubt Howard’s really seen a big that good in a best-of-seven series. As much as you’d expect him to take over and dominate, Duncan wouldn’t let him.

Being here in San Antonio, I got to listen to The Lakers homers on Fox Sports Radio. Those guys are pathetic. No one ever beats The Lakers, its always something else happening. Too funny, a team playing them in the same situation, its the breaks of the game. What makes me laugh out loud are the sports media douchebags like Chris Myers who insist San Antonio is boring, and The Lakers are exciting.

And how exciting were The Lakers? The “stars” sitting court side had fled the building before the 4th quarter. Exciting must mean getting mauled like a salmon scented fisherman in a grizzly bear sanctuary.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
