Random - DJ, The Celtics, and Gym Dogs

I'm only a casual basketball fan, but I was adamant about NBA in the eighties. Why wouldn't I have been? Larry Bird, "Magic" Johnson, Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Isaiah Thomas, Dominique from down in Atlanta...

But one of the people who got overlooked is Dennis Johnson. Don't know who he is? Well, if you watch the clip below, from one of the top 10 coolest plays ever, Dennis Johnson - or DJ, as he was more commonly known - is the guy who takes the pass from Larry Bird and lays it up for the win against the Pistons.

Dennis Johnson passed away yesterday, the victim of a heart attack, and it is a shame. He should be in the Hall of Fame. Not because he's dead, no no. No, he should be in for a lot of other reasons.

But anyway, so the weekend is coming up, and I'm going to a Gym Dogs meet tonight. Actually, it'll be in about an hour or so. In addition to Tennis and Equestrian, Gymnastics is one of the things that UGA dominates in. Excuse me: dominates. We don't win national titles in football, baseball, or basketball, by God, but if you meet us in a Gym, we're just about positively going to kick your ass!

No, but in all seriousness, the Gym Dogs are great and I hope we stomp Auburn's ass tonight. You see, the great thing is that Gymnastics blends two of my favorite things in the world: Sports and women. What could be better? And with chicks that could probably kick my ass? Priceless.


  1. nice choice of clip. that was awesome! i do love a good basketball game like that one.

    how'd you like the Gym Dogs? i've seen them once before and i really enjoyed going.

  2. So, I want to know why men's basketball shorts have progressively gotten longer since the 80s. Women play some sports wearing short skirts (which having played squash in college, I know is actually quite comfy and freeing). Hockey, football, baseball... all require long pants - at least basketball we got to check out the legs! :-) At least there are still the track boys to ogle :-)

  3. Oh yeah, yay Celtics!
