The blog post in which I express my feelings on the Sharks’ elimination from the payoffs


But at the end of the day...

I had only gone to Staples Center once prior and it was also a Sharks-Kings game. Of course, that time the game was in December so it was different and it was three years ago before the Kings became the Kings of hockey. The game tonight was Game 7. It was one of the best seven-game series hockey had to offer in recent years. This was what great hockey was about.

Knowing the Sharks, this season was going to be a struggle and this series wasn’t going to be easy. The Sharks were still trying to find their own identity. But as they tried to do so in this shortened season, they also had to win an important playoff game. It was a tough journey.

I could easily just say that Jonathan Quick was too good, but I won’t. He was good. But the Sharks didn’t challenge him enough…

Last night’s Fleetwood Mac show in San Jose was so amazing!

Last night, my friends Henry and Max, went down to San Jose to see Fleetwood Mac. This was something I had planned for sometime and the basis of my trip to the Bay was to come up and see this band. I had know about Mac for the longest time but never really got full appreciation for them until maybe a couple years ago.


The crowd was mostly older people but it was nice to see younger cats at the arena. And with Fleetwood Mac as the only act of the evening, I knew it would be a good show. But I didn’t expect them to do three hours with two encores. But they did because for Lindsey and Stevie, they were back in San Jose and that was something special to me.

The evening started with a very upbeat rendition of “Second Hand News” which got everyone excited. You could clearly see the excitement in the band. Even though they are doing a live, grueling international tour, I just felt that being back home energized them.

There’s always money in the banana stand: My Arrested Development adventure!

There’s always money in the banana stand.

They’re touring props from “Arrested Development” around LA and today they had the banana stand near work. I got there at around 5:30 and waited in line for about an hour. There was a good buzz of people, some wearing the banana stand shirt getting excited. The entire thing was free, with everyone getting a Mr. Manager name tag and free chocolate frozen bananas.

Earlier in the day, the secretary (played by Judy Greer) was there. I don’t wanna say goodbye to those. Too bad I missed her. She’s kinda pretty. Anyway, I got there and it was cool seeing all the excitement. The stand was there. They had two workers in the stand (posing with the fist to chin look) and a guy in a banana suit.

Really cool and some people got posters. Overall, I am happy the show is returning. Glad I got a chance to do this.

Hanging out with Big Boi because he’s awesome

The New Era Store in LA had this promotion where the first 50 people in line will get to meet Big Boi and get his CD for free, and autographed. It began at 4PM, so I showed up at 2PM. Only three people ahead of me. By the time 4PM rolled along, barely 50 people were there. I only knew about this via the store’s Twitter. Not so good promotion.

Big Boi was nice, signing his CD and my copy of Stankonia. He loved that I brought Stankonia. I couldn’t take a picture with him because I’d hold the line but he took a photo with me after the entire thing.

He arrived in a big bus with his image on it. Killer Mike was there but I didn’t recognize him. But anyway, good stuff it was cool to meet Big Boi. PHOTOS HERE.

Don’t be sad, Warriors fans. It only gets better from here on out

Reflections on an amazing season.

But at the end of the day...

I was listening to the local radio earlier this week and they talked about the difference between the We Believe run the Warriors had in 2007 compared to the Warriors playoff team this year. There were numerous differences between the two teams, such as the offensive playbook, the personalities of the players and other variables.

But one topic stood out to me more than any other: this year’s Warriors team had staying power.

Looking back at this Warriors team after their second round exit, I don’t feel the same way as I did back in 2007 when that team was eliminated. That team, despite being fun to watch, were filled with a bunch of players that were good but obviously were never going to be part of a long-term solution. This year’s team is the exact opposite. This year’s team is just the foundation of something special.
