You be the judge. Does it match this?
Last night I went with my parents to the New Orleans Arena to watch the Hornets play those jerks from L.A., the Lakers. Going to sporting events with my family is one of my favorite things to do when home! Unfortunately, the Hornets lost. In fact, the game was a little painful to watch because, even though the Hornets are pretty good, they played a bad game last night and were never seriously contending. It was pretty frustrating to watch the Hornets run no offense whatsoever. When you run no offense and you shooting is cold, as was the Hornets' last night, it's pretty hard to make a game out of it.
On the bright side (?), last night did solidify my dislike of Kobe Bryant! I still think he's an annoying primadona who gets every single call from the NBA refs and doesn't try very hard unless he thinks he's going to score.
Something else amazing happened at the game. As you may know, at most NBA games they play a lot of annoying, distracting music during play. Such was the case last night when the folks at the stadium began to play that, "Clap Your Hands" song that used to be in the McDonalds comercial. Well, the first time they played it, I looked up at the jumbo-tron to see an amazing site: Tom 7's font, "Action Jackson" and the words "Clap Your Hands." Here's a fascimile:
Needless to say, I was in shock. I am about 95% sure it was his font, so I texted him and he knew nothing about it. I'm going again this Friday and I'm going to try to sneak in a camera so I can take a picture. Wild!
I'm in New Orleans for the holidays! I'll be back to Hittsburgh right before New Year's, and looking for something to do, but for now, I am taking it super, super easy. TV? Yes. Food? Yes. Book? Possibly.
In Hillary Clinton news, I can't really understand why a U.S. Senator would want to be the Secretary of State. It just doesn't seem like much of an upgrade to me. I mean being a senator in this country is more or less a life-long position, unless you really screw it up. It seems unlikely now, but it's always possible that she could be looking for a new job in four years, or even less. Moreover, a senator has actual, constitutionally-granted legal powers. Hmm...
In more political news, Good Ole' Louisiana became the first state to elect a Vietnamese-American to congress! Take that, so-called progressive states.
