First, there was dinner, for a mere pittance of $7.50, you can break your vegetarian creed for cased meat in a bun. The worst ever, and I LOVE hot dogs. Should probably try to get that charge reversed. Naw, it was just poor judgement on my part.
You can't tell from the photo, but those dogs are about 18" long.
Then the curtain descends
the lights fall - a shroud of mystery
It's a LAKER GURL!
Lakers played the Clippers.
And the guy to my right was there to root for his team, and alienate most of the Staples Center.
Despite his reputation for being intractable, Kobe bows down. Maybe he's thinking of Denver. I understand he gets quite a reception there.
These people look a bit like the denying monkeys stuck on "speak no evil," which is good in a tabloid town. They don't want to think about Denver. Hey! isn't that Michael Douglas two in from the left, looking like Grizzly Adams with that beard? Why, yes it is. And at the end, lovely Ellen Pompeo. Sorry it's such a blur.
And Gentleman Jack (you can find him, if you'll just believe).
This guy's mad at Odom for leaving his favorite team for the Lakers. Frankly, myopic as I am, I thought the actual player's jersey read "Doom." My sportswriter friend (thanks so much for taking me!), said that's about how he's playing, so I don't see what the fuss is about.
Still, Kobe got his shots off, and the Lakers win 100-83.
I had a great time, and no idea what I'm talking about.
And so we say goodnight.
