You Guys Ought to Try Soccer

So LeBron James is an idiot. What does that make those of us who actually turned on ESPN last week to watch James tell us what team he is going to play for next year?

First answer: The Miami Heat.

Second answer: Idiots with too much time on our hands. James did it for money. We did it for nothing.

LeBron is only 25 but he should have known better. If he really was committed to leaving his home town, Cleveland, that idolized him, where he grew up and went to high school and then was lucky enough to end up playing professional basketball for his local team and earning $20 million or so per year in the bargain, more power to him.

Wouldn't you rather live in Miami than Cleveland? I would. Miami or Chicago? Miami. Miami or New York? Ummm.

So why did LeBron James leave Cleveland? To stack himself and two of his friends, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, all three all-stars, on one team in order to win what would now be a pathetic and money-tainted championship.

You see it sometimes at a local playground -- a couple really big guys show up and work it so they can play together on the same team. They are so much bigger and better than everyone else that nobody can win but them. They laugh and joke to each other as they win every game. It leaves a good taste in no one's mouth.

So all of a sudden The Great Plotnik is a Boston Celtic fan. I hope the Celtics kick your loser butts, Miami, and if they don't Pau and Kobe will. Well, maybe.

The Heat are now the Yankees of the NBA. They are the team most fans will root against. I will hate them more than even the Lakers. Have you heard anything about how the Knicks fans are taking this? It was a forgone conclusion (to them) that LeBron was going to end up there.

Oh, Plottie, a correction. King LeBron grew up and lived in AKRON not Cleveland!! The Cavs play in a stadium half way between Akron and Cleveland. your fact-checker must have had the day off. :)

Yeah, well you know the Yankees don't win every year and it is always so sweet when they don't. Perhaps that is a cruel thing to say on the day after Mr. Steinbrenner (sp?) died, but its true!
BUT, I also don't comment on Basketball....although I have discovered that the last 3 minutes of basketball is more interesting than the last 3 minutes of soccer!
