Cravn,

Chitown as in Chicago? Seriously?


Yup, I'm going there around the 10th of Dec. But I'll be

connecting to a flight to San Diego. But I'll try to see MJ if I can work it out so that I have some time. Is the statue

still outside the United Center?

MJ is MJ, he's

allowed to cheat on his wife. Not my thinking but the demi god is the teflon star. Nothing sticks to him.

I'm not, like,

surprised, but I'm perturbed. This with Kirby's latest legal problems make me even more negative about sports figures as

ANY kind of role model. Kirby!!

But I digress.

I'm a lot angrier

at MJ for playing for the Wizards than anything else. I don't really care what he does off the court.

(Maybe getting to

split time.)

I'm certainly mad at him for coming back off of retirement AGAIN. But I'm also mad because that's

been so much of his image and subsequent selling power, Mr. Integrity, stand-up dude, family man, etc. As I told my hubby

when he gave me the scoop, "That's the best $250,000 he ever spent." It doesn't matter now, but 10 years ago? That would

have been huge, and cost him major endorsments.

(In case it's not clear, I only have such strong feelings about it

because basketball-wise, nay, sport-wise, Brett Favre has been his only rival for my affections.)

Ok, I split

it.

I used to be his biggest fan. But thankfully I've been away (no B-Ball in Brazil) and didn't have to watch him

embarass himself.

What made him great

does not translate well to retirement. (Or to marital fidelity -- I always doubted the good guy schtick.) He must must must

be the best and prove himself and show those little pipsqueaks how it's done... He had such an amazing opportunity to go

out on top (that move! to sink the basket to win the series... doesn't get better than that) and I'm sad he had to

squander it.

Did you know that

the Bulls won the championship at least twice on my birthday?

I remember that shot. I can't ever forget that.

Twas Bryon Russell,

and he'd stripped the ball from the Mailman a play earlier.

Right right right

on the defensive play. Made it happen on both ends. Byron Russell, though? I thought it was a more iconic next

generation-type up-and-comer. Maybe just should have been, symblically, and so registered as such.

Bryon wasn't too

young but he had recently broken off the bench so he might have seemed like a new player. And he was being touted as the

Jazz's stopper.

I've seen it a

million times but am now downloading quicktime to see it again (since the real player file seems to be a dead link).

It gave me some

problems too, but then eventually worked even though there was a "no longer operative" (or something) message. Clicking on

the second of the two links offered seemed to work better.
