Things That Don't Suck

I must be fair. Here are some things that (surprisingly, in some cases) don't suck.
  1. Watching the Orlando Magic get embarrassed in the NBA playoffs - For a sports team that's never won anything, they sure run their mouths a lot. Dwight Howard shutting his mouth will not suck.
  2. Being a teacher in June, July, and most of August - You probably already knew this. You probably think I'm lucky. I'm actually smart. I knew what I was doing when I chose a career.
  3. The African Acrobats at Circus Circus - This may be the biggest surprise on the list. Circus Circus in Las Vegas has free circus acts, most of which suck. Not this one. The African Acrobats (supposedly from Kenya) are awesome.
  4. Being married - Who would have thought this. Marriage is one of the few milestones in life that does not disappoint. You can throw in having children with things that don't suck too.

Things That Suck

Don't believe the hype. Here are some things that suck:

  1. Avatar - a cliche-ridden adventure film with over-the-top left wing propaganda and really cool special effects.
  2. Ipods - Why can't I just drag and click? Why does Apple need to make everything so freaking difficult.
  3. Cleveland Sports Teams - This needs no explanation.
  4. Barrack Obama - The great unifier, my rear! Where's the transparency he promised (2,000 page health care bills, for example)? Don't blame me. I didn't vote for him.

Why I'm Rooting for the Boston Celtics

I'm only following the NBA playoffs through my Lebron lens. Here's why I'm rooting for Boston to sweep Orlando and sweep the Lakers: Lebron's watching and here's what he's thinking.

  1. Dang, Boston's good!
  2. We almost beat them!
  3. If my elbow wasn't injured we might have beaten them!
  4. If I had a coach who didn't get outcoached on a nightly basis, we could have beaten them!
  5. Boston's getting old.
  6. I'm staying in Cleveland!
