I don’t know if any of you saw KG’s post-game interview last Tuesday after winning his first NBA Championship, but homeboy is intense. It’s hard to say anything bad about Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, or Paul Pierce. I couldn’t think of more worthy champions.
I came across a ZAP Truck today as I was meandering around the lakefront. This is a pretty great concept. ZAP stands for zero air pollution and all of the vehicles (cars, trucks, scooter, ATVs, marine motors) are 100% electric. Take a look at their showroom and warehouse, it’s actually pretty cool.
I’d have to floss one on 24s though, can’t mess with those fact’s.
After the storm cleared, me and couple buddies went to the North Center Ribfest. The food was pretty righteous. After trying the sampler portion (three ribs for $3) from about four different restaurants, the consensus was that Cy’s Steakhouse and Tavern had the best. Cy’s has somewhat of a dynasty going, they are five time winners of the best ribs at this festival. The meat was tender and juicy, and the BBQ sauce was by far the best (all the others were too sweet and ketchupy). I walked up and talked to the cook about the sauce, one of the main differences is that whole jalepenos are simmering in the sauce, giving it an extra kick. He also gave me some jalapenos taste on the down low, which I didn’t eat because I’m a pussy.
Fresh squeezed frozen lemonade was the perfect sidekick to the ribs. Apparently I creeped out the young lady making them by saying, “Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, there you go. Look at that. Put it in there,” while she was pouring the lemonade in the cup. I was just being nice and letting her know how much I appreciated her on this day.
I would like to go to Cy’s soon. I also decided that I would like to hang out in that ‘hood more often.
Anyone watched this show recently? Me neither, but I just watched the clip above on YouTube and I was basically LOLing for the last five minutes. Anyway, ABC has a show coming out this summer called Wipeout, which is why I thought of it.
Read the MXC Wikipedia page, it has some nice little tid-bits. The “Recurring Characters” are funny.
“LeBron is no Kobe. He doesn’t have Bryant’s perimeter touch, his decision-making savvy or his instinct to plunge the dagger.”—Jay Mariotti, click here to read why Kobe Bryant is better than Michael Jordan too.
My dawg, Matt Kemp, for no apparent reason says, “Get off me, cuz.”
Reminds me of myself circa Summer of 2003 in the Champions Basketball League in Tulsa, OK. I told Scott “Toothless in Seattle” Pierce that, “I am going to knock your other tooth out if you don’t quit acting like such a baby.”
Fast forward to about 3 minutes later in the game. Me and Replogle have Pierce trapped in the corner, Pierce throws a fierce elbow knocking me to the ground, but don’t worry, I get right back up with Pierce’s leg in hand and basically power drive him into the court. A small brawl ensued.
We were pretty much told not to come back. Whatever, I gotta maintain my rep.
Funnier part of the story, and keep in mind that we’re in Oklahoma where “the wind comes sweeping cross the plains.” Anyway, after the game I am getting into my Brother’s car, I open the door, and I’ll be damned if that same sweeping wind swoops in and catches the very door I am opening and slams it into an unsuspecting Ford Focus resulting in a minor dent and scratch. A dent and scratch that would probably cost more than an insurance premium to fix.
So we leave the complex, drive down the road and stop at a stoplight. I look to my right, and guess who is driving that same, unsuspecting Ford Focus. That’s right, Scott “Toothless in Seattle” Pierce.
