I have to admit, I’ve really started to get into this Celtics-Lakers series. If only basketball was like this all season long, I’d probably be a devout fan.
Which reminds me of the kid my dad and I met in Disney World back in December of ’06. He was clad in a Paul Pierce jersey and my dad said, “You don’t see many of them anymore.” After a brief conversation, we discovered he was 18, from Springfield (Mass, that is) and a lifelong Celtics fan despite not even being ALIVE during the last great championship era (Larry Bird, et al). Of course, my dad had to school him on the history of the Celtics, told him of how great the 60s and 80s were and how he should never give up his team because of its current record, using his own lifelong Patriots allegiance as an example.
Anyway, like I said, I have been watching the games and enjoying them but one thing that has stuck out in my mind is how MFing ugly the Lakers are and I’m not talking about how they play. Pau Gasol is FUG personified. The boyfriend tells me that ugly Lakers is nothing new and they had perhaps the ugliest basketball player of all time. Thanks (or not) to Google, a quick image search introduced me to… dun dun dun…
Really, my boyfriend is not one to discuss the appearance of other men so I knew when he said Kurt Rambis was one ugly M.F., he wasn’t joking. Wow, just wow.
