I'm reading through the sports news, the emails, and the cheap cigar adverts in my inbox today, and I come across this headline:
"Celtics looking to slow Bryant in game 2"
You might ask, is this a Craigslist ad?
Is it a joke?
As much as I dislike Kobe Bryant and his Laker lackeys, I find this to be really funny. REALLY funny. So, I click on the headline to read more. Inquiring minds want to know! There is more!
"Celtics scheme ways to overcome Kobe in game 2"
Now we're scheming!! I wonder what we're coming up with in the locker room. I'm imagining Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett heating up a kettle of tar to dump at the doorway into the court. Maybe some banana peels. Koopa shells...I could go on. You get it.
How about instead of trying to slow one man down, you try and up your entire squad's game so that they have a shot at matching this one man and all his greatness. And by that, I mean man the hell up and don't let this one crybaby take you down that easily. At least let the other four in on the fun.
In the mean time, I'm still giggling about this scheming stuff...writers these days.
