    me and my buddy chris went to the very first Laker home game 

    at Staples ever

    and in an hour we will be there again for their last home game of this season

    the fact that it happens to be game five of the nba finals is just a happy accident

    although a lot of my excitement for the home team trickled away when Shaq was let go

    who am i to refuse finals tickets with my longtime isla vista bro?

    plus plaschke, despite what welch says, wrote a good piece about how real fans arent making it into Staples for the finals

    “Late in Thursday’s game, my wife whispered to me that the woman sitting next to her had no idea what was going on,” said Michael Balzary, a season-ticket holder better known as the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Flea.”

    well, at least two fans who do know what is going on will be at the game tonight, and neither of us are rich businessmen who bought these seats from any of the ticket agencies to impress clients.

    i might even buy a laker hat on the way in because something tells me this will be the beginning of the greatest nba finals evah
