There's way too much dribbling. It really screws up the offensive flow. Come on Cavs! Win one for the soon to be gipper.
I need to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 6 AM. I don't know when my surgery is exactly, but probably around 8 AM or so. I'll be home in the early afternoon I hope.

I don't remember where I heard this but someone said that this is what Cleveland sports are all about. They suck you in, get you to believe, then drop you off a cliff.

What do I want on my birthday for my birthday? I want the Cavs to win. I need the Cavs to win.

They need to win. This might as well be game 7. If they go down 3-1, I give them about a 1% chance of winning the series given the way they're playing now.

Z is the key. He has to hit outside shots right from the beginning of the game. If he is able to do that then Howard will have to shadow him outside the paint which opens it up for drives to the basket.

Is the Cavaliers dream season unravelling before our eyes? It unfortunately seems to be.

The kitchen is going in to sleep mode for a month. Everything is finished except for the window seat and the ceiling. Once the window seat is completed we'll take out the ceiling, re-drywall it and texture it again. Then we will really and truly be finito!

While I wasn't actively rooting for the Celtics (as that would be ridiculous) I do think they would've been a much better matchup for the Cavaliers. As in, the Cavs would have swept them.

The Magic scare me because of their ability to get hot from the outside and the fact that they have an absolute beast on the inside. He'll slow down the drives to the hoop unless Z can start hitting some outside shots and draw him away.

I still think the Cavs will win the series, but I don't think it will be a sweep. A lot depends on which Magic team they play. Will it be the one with the head in the clouds or will it be the focused team that beat then 2 times during the regular season? If the Cavs can come out and get a nice lead as they have been doing all playoffs I think the Magic will wilt under the pressure. If they let the Magic hang around though, then it will be very difficult indeed.

Today was bonus day at work. Yes, that's right. Bonus day. After we had 6 layoffs in 6 months we still made tons of money and got a bonus. Does that make sense to anyone? I didn't think so.

Don't get me wrong. I'm happy to get a bonus (especially with the ongoing never ending kitchen project) but I think that I'd rather see the company keep people employed and make slightly less profit as opposed to laying off 30% of the workforce in order to maintain a consistent profit margin.

There are times when I think it's appropriate to show a little compassion in business. True, the ultimate goal is to make the shareholders money. There's no doubting that as the sole responsibility of the business. Sometimes there are simply better ways to do that though. In this case we've removed so many people that when business picks back up (which it will) then we'll have to spend more time and money to train new workers than we would have spent to just keep those we already had.

Stupid Facebook. Between imposters posing as me and a terrible search function I can't see how they have 200 million users.

The Nike LeBron\Kobe puppets commercial is absolutely brilliant. From the talc that comes flying from LeBron's hands every time he claps to the dialog talking about $20 Chinese food to the proclamation of "Akron, Ohio baby!" It's fantastic. I've watched it about 20 times.

I can't remember so many good commercials (remember the LeBrons?) featuring one athlete since the Mars Blackmon \ Michael Jordan days.

I think it will be a close game between the Cavs and the Hawks tonight. I think the Cavs will only win by 15.
Chad Pennington was the commencement speaker today. He did a pretty good job, but the whole thing just went on too long, so people were beginning to lose interest near the end of his speech.

The ceremony went for 3 hours and 15 minutes. That's a long time. Twice as long as it should've been.

Here I am outside of Huntington, West Virginia. The wife has not yet arrived. I'm expecting her around 1:30 AM. Then we have to get up at 6 AM so that we can get ready and then get her sister and take her to graduation and grab a good seat for the 9 AM show.

Who graduates at 9 AM? Stupid Marshall, that's who.

At least I'll get to remember my good friend "the afternoon nap" tomorrow. Ah, how I've missed you. What've you been doing lately? Are you on Twitter? How about Facebook? Can I follow your every move and learn that you've been playing a lot of Scrabble lately and are currently eating waffles? Cool... apparently.

Oh wait, that's just like this blog.

Anyway, on to other thoughts. I'm rooting for the Celtics and the Rockets now, as any good Cavaliers fan should be doing as they provide the path of least resistance. The Magic scare me. They've got good outside shooting and great interior defense. Two things that don't bode well for the Cavs. I still think they'd beat the Magic, but I really doubt they'd be blowouts as we've become accustomed to lately.

So I'm watching the Cavs build up a 36 point lead and then, BAM! They show Michael Jordan shooting over Craig Ehlo.

Really? Was that necessary? You suck ESPN!

Then what happens? The Hawks get within 15 points because the bench bunch let them back in the game. Sure, there were only 2 minutes left in the game, but still...

They ended up winning by 20, but it should've been more like 50.

So people (including our neighbor) are selling the free stuff we got from the Cavs game last night. We got the Witness MVP Nike shirt, the Witness MVP Nike poster, and the One Goal towel. They're going on eBay for at least $50.

Just got home from the Cavs blowout win over the Hawks. More later. Maybe.
