LAKERS WIN!......and an encounter that made me happy, too

I was out for dinner tonight and had to walk through the bar halfway through dinner to find someone (long story) and I stopped at the restaurant bar because I saw the Lakers game on and wanted to know the score.........there were a bunch of youngish people on barstools watching and when the camera panned on Mr and Mrs John McCain, they yelled "RACIST SENATOR...there's the racist senator!" I said "RACIST?" and they didn't even turn around they were so focused on the TV screen...standing behind these kids at the bar were a black man and an older white man next to him. I happened to have been standing next to the black man and I looked at him and said "hi..........how are the Lakers doing?"
The black man said "The Lakers are up 8 points!" I said "Great! And, you know, McCain is NOT racist."
He then smiles, and says "I KNOW." I grabbed his arm, said "God BLESS YOU!" with a big smile....he positively beamed at me and I told him goodnight and went back to my table.
GOD BLESS THAT GUY...."I know"... That felt SO GOOD! I wanted to HUG that guy!
AND THE LAKERS JUST WON!!
(Lo Siento, Los Suns)

Don't give a crap about the Lakers. Bunch of pituitary cases.

But that black guy? THERE is a MAN.

I'll ignore your line about the Lakers, and isn't that black guy GREAT! He really looked into my eyes like he SO got it, and was probably a Conservative...
I wish we could have talked a little... xx

I wished they'd do something about those stupid officials

and I boycotted the Suns games...Los Suns my a**

It would have been interesting to plumb the depths of his mind, wouldn't it?

P.S.
Basketball players: bunch of pituitary cases. And grossly overpaid.

Found a very small feral kitten in the yard today. Mostly tabby with white boots. Think we're gonna keep him. Named him Ferrell. He's sleeping in a small padded cat house. Fed him and he ate like a champ.

Enjoy!

Glad the Los Canadians lost. Now I hope the Los Duckies will get their butt whooped :)

Z,
It's not often, but it looks like I'm going to have to side with Ducky on this one--though there is some satisfaction in seeing the Suns lose.

You realize that after this year, 26 of the last 27 NBA titles will have been won by 6 teams?

Good to hear your team won Z. Perhaps if you had the attention of those students, you should ask them if they'd like to take some illegals into their home, unless they're racists or something.

Ducky's here said...

Everytime I see Knuckles McCain I think of him home listening to Cindy scream at him about how she could have been the first lady if he hadn't chosen the pole dancer and I know there is some justice.

Celts are a little tired of taking flagrant fouls. time to cold cock Kobie.

Z said...

tio, I don't dislike the Celtics, they were always the big rivals when basketball was clean and refs were honest and I got to watch sitting in my dear Dad's lap....So, I have a fondness for the Celtics, even tho DAD DIDN'T:-)

Oh, Ducky...can you tell us how you know that about Cindy mcCain? I'd love to know that.

MK, it's LOS SUNS who should be asked to take illegals into their homes, good point. The Lakers administration said that what the Suns did was inappropriate and that they obviously didn't know the federal law...not us.

Z said...

Actually, this is one of the reasons I'm thrilled we beat the Suns.

Ducky, what's this? A little pre-emptive sour grapes?

don't worry Pris, Kobe has a totally different set of rules.

You must mean when they are not dishing them out. Garnett is the biggest thug in the game. I call him Mr. Elbows.
