money colors everything-- if oj were a regular black man, he would be in corcoran state prison in 1994. but he had money and high priced lawyers like johnny cocheran. kobe's rape "case" proved this true too

What are your thoughts on other sports besides the NBA, and who are your fav. teams in those sports? Break them down a bit and analyze them if you have the time.

i always try to read your comments too mlh

i have dropped off following other sports closely so i cant really give good insight into the teams-- but i just cheer for them

here are my all time favs:
  • the seattle teams--mariners and seahawks
  • the yankees
  • the raiders
  • notre dame football
  • univ of wash football and basketball
  • the williams sisters in tennis
  • dont follow hockey or golf or nascar
  • poker and 9-ball arent sports

Congrats on the milestone.

I have family in Seattle, would you recommend a visit?

Am I your favourite poster yet?

Do you think there should be more nationally televised games? If so, how many?

If the NBA decided to give a franchise to Seattle again and came to you personally to come up with a roster of Two Rookies, two Sophmores, two Europeans, Two Americans that didn't make the 08 US Olympic team, a former Slam dunk champion and the rest bench players (have to have come off the bench more than they've started) - Who would your 15 guys be?

i knew a few people who studied at the claremont school of theology and i thought they were pretty sharp. so i associate that school with some fine theological training.
