NBA Draft 2008...who could ask for more?

Well last night was the NBA draft and please let me say that it was a great big steaming pile of crap.

Not the draft itself, that was fine. In fact, I thought ESPN did a good job coving it and making it almost watchable. Plus, I am always up for a good draft with the intrigue and the strategy. What made this draft so terrible is that there was only two good players. After Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley were off the board the story lines were over.

Yes, there were also some good "value picks" and some prospects with "upside", but as a whole after the first two picks were over you could switch over to I Love the New Millenium on VH1 and you would not miss anything by checking back during every other commercial break.

Now normally you would continue to watch incase of trades, but there were no blockbuster deals except for the Timberwolves trading OJ Mayo and crap to Memphis, for assorted overpaid roleplayers and Kevin Love. [Side note...Kevin Love and next years first overall pick Tyler Hansbrough will eventually compete in a reality TV show that will attempt to determine who will be the lead singer for The Giant White Busts]

And that took place after the draft.

Welcome...You've Got Blog

I know, I know, too easy right? But I had to do it.

Just as a random side note...the whole You've Got Mail soundbyte from AOL being the title concept for a movie is a little ridiculous, but as I have not seen the movie itself, I may be judging to harshly.

This blog is going to be the shared experience of my personal introspection of my life. At the same time many of my posts will discuss and refine my views on politics and sports.
But since this is my introductory entry I will begin by discussing the big question of who I am.
Who I am cannot be answered in a blog regardless of what popular media would lead you to believe. I am sure that we have all seen the Twix commercial that talks about blogging.

Well, that is not me.

I am the personification of paradox. Even those who know me the best know nothing about me. I am an open book, but the secrets within the pages of that book cannot be unlocked merely by reading. I am the guy who plays Fantasy Football, takes a day off work to watch the NFL Draft, but also can recite most Disney movies by heart.

For those of you who will come to readmy opinions on sports and politics...I am just a regular guy. I have no specialized knowledge, but I know how to think and I have an opinion. And this is what you do if you have a thought on something, you blog.

I look forward to our journey together. I know it’s hard to get to know me but Don't Stop Believin' that you can and we will get along great.

If you want to leave a comment I would love to read them.
