Just a few of the things in the cornucopia that I am thankful for today:
I’m thankful that the biggest problems with my favorite team is they keep blowing part of those 30 point leads they build (29 other teams want that problem).
Living in a place where I am wearing shorts and flip flops on Thanksgiving day.
A wife that is my best friend. And puts up with this hobby that has grown into a really big, out of control hobby.
That Chris Wallace is General Manager in Memphis. Pretty much the same for the ownership group there.
The Kogi trucks.
Jerry Buss. (And the rest of the Buss family.)
The Showtime Lakers and all the fun they provided me.
John Wooden (and his youth basketball camps).
My daughters, who make me laugh and smile every day.
Derek Fisher in the clutch.
Andrew Bynum’s growth.
The Napa Valley and the Bordeaux region of France.
All the great Lakers news you can find out on the Web that wasn’t available just five years ago. Like the Brothers Kamenetzky podcast with Spike Lee talking about everything (even his good movies, like Doin’ the Right Thing).
The other moderators and writers at this site (Darius, Zephid, Gatinho, Nomuskles, Bill Bridges), who provide so much great thought and discussion, for sharing all that with us.
Everybody who comes to this site and makes it a community. All of you make this a fun place to be where I learn something every day.
