I’m getting to this post kind of late today, but it’s worth it. My lovely wife somehow scored tickets to Mumford & Sons last night here in Dallas, and it was a fantastic show. It’s been sold out for months, I don’t know how she did it. I don’t work well on late nights, but I have plenty of caffeine in me today to pump this out.
Today is quite the significant day. August 14. For one, it is Our Holy QB, Tim Tebow’s birthday. I know opinions of him are becoming less and less positive/relevant, but I still like him. Secondly, it is my two-year birthday of starting this blog! I can’t believe all the twists and turns that I’ve been through since beginning this journey as a writer, but I’m so glad I started.
Today’s post is written by Ben Zajdel, a fellow blogger and DFW resident. I have talked a lot about my love for Tim Tebow, but when Ben approached me about a post that included The Admiral, I knew he was a psychic. David Robinson is my favorite baller of all time.

Everyone is talking about the NFL Draft right now. And they should be, it starts this evening, and the face and fortunes of every NFL team is on the line, not to mention the futures of at least 224 young men who are hoping to have a NFL career.
As I’ve made pretty clear here, I’m a pretty biased writer. Sometimes I try not to be, but when we talk about the certain teams I can’t help it. As a Spurs fan, we have plenty of rivals. My favorite rival is probably the Mavericks, followed by our newest rival, the Thunder. I love those games. But, then there are the teams I hate. The Jazz used to be on the top of the list, but they aren’t any good anymore. Now my most hated rival comes out of LA. There is literally not another team I hate more than the Lakers. I hate everyone on their team. I got really sad when Steve Nash went there because I used to really like the guy. Anyways, the events of this past week really made me happy. I think it’s hilarious to fire a coach after 5 games. That’s like an NFL team firing their coach after Week 1. Outrageous And then the whole Phil Jackson fiasco had me in stitches. I was actually worried about the Lakers getting him back, but the situation worked out for the best for my Spurs (who again, nobody seems to remember). On a more serious note, I think the Lakers’ problem is personnel, not coaching. Nash, Kobe, and Dwight are not complimentary players. The Lakers have pulled a Cowboys and just got big names that don’t fit together at all. Some other thoughts from this week:
The past few years, as has been noted here, have been the beginning of a wonderful, lifelong relationship with the Texas Rangers. I just so happened to move to Dallas at the beginning of a wonderful time for the Texas Rangers. As a follower, I have now witnessed Sammy Sosa (along with a revolving door of other talent), the beginning of the Warsh era, the very controversial and confusing sale of the team, and the loss of 2 World Series’. As of Friday night, I can add the collapse and giveaway of the AL West title along with the loss of the first ever 1-game Wild Card playoff. Overall, I’m pretty upset with this season, and it’s not because we didn’t get to the World Series again.
