I never looked before but a few minutes ago I clicked on the stats page at TypePad, curious to know if anyone was reading this site besides some of my bored relatives. Much to my surprise, I have recieved several hundred hits. So, in light of this development, I have decided to try to make this site more interesting and more insightful (as if that was possible). I, of course, have no real idea how to accomplish this. Like many things in my life I guess I will just wing it and hope for the best.
Which bring me to my next thought. Are the Lakers the luckiest mother effers around or what? If it wasn’t for the stellar play, practically at the buzzer, of Mr. Kobe Bryant, the Lakers would be down two games and heading for Motown. The fact that Kobe can be going through what he is going through and still pull that 3-Point shot out of his ass amazes me. That’s focus people. Pretty impressive.
I don’t pretend to know what happened between Kobe and his accuser in Colorado but I do know that even if his is found not guilty there will still be a stigma attached to him. Maybe for the rest of his life. You don’t just bounce back from that and resume your normal life. Forget being the spokesman for McDonalds or Coke or any other of the “family-friendly” companies. That’s all over. There will always be people who will think he’s guilty. Too bad, really, if he’s not guilty. If he is guilty, I have no sympathy for him. Of course, either way, he’s not a saint. He still cheated on his wife.
Keep in mind that there are still people out there who think OJ is innocent. These are the same people who will be thrilled with this next bit of info. OJ is going to be coming out with a new TV show. I can’t go into much detail right now to protect my source, but suffice to say that if what I have heard about it is true, it will definately spark heated debate. One tidbit for now: The concept is very similar to a show on MTV right now which was created by a certain male actor who like older women. The title, of course, is different but the concept is almost identical. More on this story as it developes. Also, you can probably find info about it if you look for it as OJ talked about it on TV last weekend during an interview.
What a crazy world we live in. And we are just getting started. But don’t dispair because here’s a bit of inspiration if you ever feel like life is getting too difficult and you can’t go on.
Go to this site and read the story of a 38-year-old woman who is rowing from Cape Cod, USA to Brittany, France. Amazing.
