I'm not going to make fun of Kevin Garnett. In fact, I love to see players get emotional when they just won a championship. Garnett wanted it so badly he thanked his baby's momma. You know you want it a lot if you are thanking your baby Boo.
I wonder what Adidas reps thought when he shouted it out. I could see some short pencil pusher white guy with glasses running up to KG and shouting "No KG, it's IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING, IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!!" while being pushed over by the mob and crying at the end. KG's tears were made of joy. The corporate guy's tears were made from the impending corporate downsizing he surely faced today.
I love sports and their meanings.

Ousted Seattle Mariner's GM Bill Bavasi had some nice parting words for starting pitcher Erik Bedard during his press conference...(fast forward to the 2:00 minute mark)...
"He'll have a stupid answer for you, you can count on it,'' Bavasi said. "He'll have some dumbass answer.''
Wow, apparently Bavasi didn't do his homework before trading for Bedard. Look, Bedard was the same way in Baltimore. He hates to talk to the media and he throws a ton of pitches. He seems unemotional but these are things Bavasi should have already known before cleaning out their minor league talent to acquire him. Bedard isn't the reason why you got fired. He may be one of the reasons but there was the ridiculous signing of Richie Sexson. Sexson has been horrible and with his fat contract is not even an adequate first baseman. The Adrian Beltre signing backfired too. You passed on the chance to get Vladimir Guerrero and Miguel Tejada and instead opted for Raul Ibanez and Rich Aurilia. You gave Carlos effing Silva a stupid contract. You were the worst GM by far in major league baseball.
Don't blame Bedard for your downfall. Look in the mirror Bavasi and read the press clippings. You can only blame yourself for putting the Mariners in the gutter. And I have no idea what he means by "white line fever." Sounds like a fun supermodel party to me. Maybe Bavasi is still coked up because all of his baseball moves were as rational as a cokehead.

The Boston Celtics won their 17th NBA Championship last night by absolutely destroying the Los Angeles Lakers to give the long suffering Boston Chowderheads another sports championship. With the Red Sox winning two World Series, the Patriots winning three Super Bowls, and now the Celtics winning one I think it is appropriate to call Boston Titletown. Yes the New York Giants won the Super Bowl but the city of New York will be getting grief for a long time from all the Massholes who are reveling in this championship run.
El Presidente of Boston's Barstool Sports summed it up best when discussing the feeling of euphoria of winning yet another sports championship...
First of all, let me start by saying I’m shitfaced. Second of all, I’m drenched in beer from people doing the champagne thing in the bar. Third of all I’m shitfaced. Having said that I feel like I need to write a quick blog before I pass out. Now I’m not one of those guys who like to say I told you so. So I’m not going to sit here and brag about how at the beginning of this series I said that the Lakers being a 2 to 1 favorite was one of the biggest jokes of all time. I’m not going to say that I told you the Celtics would not only win this series but they’d dominate it. I’m not going to say that I told you Paul Pierce was just as good as Kobe Bryant. I’m not going to bring up how everybody except the Stool overlooked the fact that the Celts were 25-5 against the West this year. I’m not going to mention how I was 7-0 in mortal locks this series. The bottom-line is that bragging about that type of shit just isn’t my style. And more importantly anybody can look like a genius when you live in Boston. I mean we fucking own this world! Honestly how many fucking parades can one city have? Congratulations Boston, we did it again! And to everybody who doesn’t like us. Fuck off and suck our rings!
And you know he is absolutely right. They own the sports world right now. No need to argue the fact. And yes we are all jealous of the championships. But in doing so they have become the new New York. Loud and brash and ready to tell everybody that "O'doyle rules."
