And so Kobe Bryant lobbed it up to the 7'1" center while his afro fluttered. Down came the center towards the rim. He gently grabbed the ball and with such grace slammed it home. The look on his face said it all. Led by Shaq, Horry, Fish, and Kobe the Lakers won it all that year and a legend was born in big-man Shaquille O'Neal.
Now it is 2011. A full 19 years since this man walked the courts in Orlando. Now anyone worldwide can say Shaquille and you will know exactly who they're talking about.
Shaq or Superman or The Big Aristotle or Hobo Master or The Diesel or Shaq Fu or The Big Daddy or the Shaq Daddy or The Big Agave or The Big Cactus or the Big Shaqtus or The Big Galactus or Wilt Chamberneezy or The Big Baryshkinov or The Real Deal or Dr. Shaq or The Big Shamrock or The Big Leprachaun or Shaqovic or even The Big Conductor was such a fun player he even posed as a statue in his final NBA season in Boston. In his final season he played with the man whom he nicknamed "The Truth," Paul Pierce.
How good was Shaq? Well obviously he's a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame in Springfield but in his career span he played for the Magic, Lakers, Heat, Suns, Cavaliers, and the Celtics he has done great things. He was the 1994 FIBA World Championship MVP, Three Time NBA All-Star Game MVP (2000, 2004, 2009), NBA All Rookie First Team, Three Time All Defensive Second Team, Four Time All NBA Third Team, Two Time All NBA Second Team, Eight Time All NBA First Team, Two Time NBA Scoring Champion, 15 Time NBA All-Star, NBA Rookie of the Year (1993), NBA MVP (2000), Three Time NBA Finals MVP, Four Time NBA Champion (2000, 2001, 2002, 2006.)
Go on Sportscenter Shaq.
I hope the future bodes well for you.

Krejci. Horton. Lucic. Chara. Thomas. Marchand. Bergeron. Seguin. These names will appear a lot more now that the Bruins are in the Stanley Cup Finals! I am so happy. If the B's win then Boston will be the first city to have their basketball, hockey, baseball, and football team win the title in one decade. Just makes me love Boston THAT much more.
Stephen Spielberg. Raiders of the Lost Ark. Was going to put Men in Black II but it was PRODUCED by Spielberg. Oh Kay Can You See?

I saw Pirates of the Carribean 4: On Stranger Tides. It wasn't that bad and despite the absence of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly it was a good compliment to the series. I hear they are making two more and I hope they are good with at least a cameo from Bloom and Knightly. I'd like to talk about one scene in particular however. In the beginning Jack is tied to a chair as Vernon Dursley comes in and interrogates him. Jack was trying to get a cupcake of some sort. It falls on the ground. While escaping off of chandeliers and windows and guns he kicks the cupcake up onto the chandelier. While swinging out of the room he snatches the cupcake that he's wanted since the beginning. Therefore, Jack Sparrow is a winner.

Maizzze. Maizze. Comedic geniuses Kevin James, Adam Sandler, David Spade, and Chris Rock joined up for this masterpiece that should've won Best Picture. Or maybe Dodgeball. Or maybe Airplane. Or maybe Happy Gilmore. Or maybe Elf. Let's call it a five way tie.
I LOVE NETFLIX SO MUCH! TWO NIGHTS AGO THE EVENT ENDED IT'S FIRST, LAST, AND ONLY SEASON. NBC HAD CANCELLED IT MUCH TO MY DISAPPOINTMENT. BUT WILL SEAN WALKER (JASON RITTER) LIVE? NAMES SUCH AS DC COMICS AND NETFLIX ARE BEING TOSSED AROUND. THIS MAKES ME HAPPY IN NUMEROUS WAYS! ALL I CAN PICTURE IS THE CEO OF NETFLIX SAYING "DO YOU SEE MY HAT? NO? THAT'S CAUSE I JUST THREW IT IN THE RING!" DWIGHT SCHRUTE. YAY! SEE MY POST YESTERDAY FOR AN EVENT-FUL RECAP!

A good end to a great season from The Event. It wasn't LOST, but it was still amazing. It wasn't a send-off like Michael Scott, but so much better than Persons Unknown. You must see it, but I'll just mention that Jason Ritter lived and it was epic how Blake, Simon, Sean, and Vicky just totally dismantled Sophia and her goons. It seemed like Leila was going to survive but who knows about the planet! It seemed like they just made a second Earth so what could really go wrong there? Maybe I'm just assuming but I don't think so.
There's no poster for this, but Jon Favreau's The Magic Kingdom. He's DOING it, but it's not DONE yet. See what I did there?

There was a poll on Facebook from Sports Illustrated that said “Who Is The Nicest Player In Baseball?” It had the options of Curtis Granderson, Derek Jeter, and Jim Thome. However, it had the option to add names. I added Dustin Pedroia. Apparently it was a good addition because 81 more people voted for him getting him to 10% and 3rd place. That was high enough to get him into Sports Illustrated. I put him in there. I got my favorite athlete into a magazine. That makes me happy!

Harry Potter opened and it was monumental for the theme park. Now they're adding a Despicable Me ride. I wouldn't mind this if it didn't replace the JIMMY NEUTRON RIDE! Are you kidding me? You're gonna pick these one-eyed freak shows over a robot dog? Come on people. They're giving it back to Disney. (Which isn't a bad thing.)

*Note a comeback from 7-0 in the seventh was in October and therefore not mentioned as much except for this.
Four years ago on Mother's Day the Red Sox capped a 5-0 deficit in the ninth to BALTIMORE with a Julio Lugo infield single to walk-off with a Mother's Day Miracle. Now, four years and four days after it happened, we're doing it again. Boston was down 6-0 in the fifth when Jed Lowrie doubled home J.D Drew, 6-1. Later, Tek singled which scored Lowrie and advanced Crawford to second, 6-2. Then Gonzalez singled, scoring Crawford and putting Varitek in scoring position, 6-3. After, Youkilis doubled to left which brought home Tek and Gonzo, 6-5. After a Mark Reynolds home run in the 7th for Baltimore, Varitek singled again and that scored Lowrie, 7-6. Finally, in the 9th, Adrian Gonzalez doubled and Ellsbury and Pedroia scored to win it for the Red Sox 8-7.
I love Boston comebacks.

Where did the guy, Matt, even get the money to do this. She figured it out a little early for my liking. Still good though.
I loved it, it used to be my 5th favorite movie. But something happened and now I can't stand it. Bradford Howe is still cool though.

The Event was cancelled. So was Better With You, Outsourced, Mr. Sunshine, Lie to Me, and Human Target. The fall began with these shows and countless others. Very few survived. Among the ones that did were Harry's Law and Body of Proof. This really upsets me. I wish I could swear. The shows that were cancelled are good, the ones that were renewed were bad. I'll miss Gupta, Casey, Roman, Tim Roth, Jackie Earle Haley, and Jason Ritter. It'd be cool if they made a show with all of these guys. I hope they end well. HUGE sigh.

Not only did it change my mind about orchestras and inspiration and a new definition of scary, it changed the world's mind about dinosaurs and technology in movies. The visual effects were crazy for the time and scientists altered the way they though the extinct, prehistoric creatures stood.

It was a good game. Even went to Overtime! Couple of drunk people. Good though. Celtics lost, but what can you do? Saw LeBron, Wade, Bosh, Chalmers, Shaq, Rondo, Pierce, KG, and Ray live! Pretty cool, eh? I loved it!

There's three! Instead of rambling, I'll make a long story short, "too late!" See what I did there? Oh well. Wadsworth makes it perfect and then you don't know which ending you'll get. Clue.
