    ridiculously pretty girl answers with 

    id love to go on a date with you tony

    and i think one day this will end.

    one day the good luck will run out.

    but then i think of that guy in the great outfits

    who sits behind the basket at laker games and hob nobs with the players.

    his luck hasnt run out.

    talk about the most interesting man in the world.

    this guy stands up when the players are shooting around.

    he walks onto the court a little.

    the players slowly make their way to him.

    and he says stuff as they lean over.

    i wonder what hes talks about.

    i bet its not about

    real estate.

    xbi thinks they can woo me with Lakers playoff tickets 

    and im all bros, my rad bff chris already flows me lakers seats. dontcha read the busblawwwg?

    theyre like, um how about 2nd row right behind the basket.

    so close you can jibber jabber with jimmy goldstein

    and i was all go ooooonnnnnnnn…

    chairmans room

    and they were all ok and how would you like some passes for you and your bro to drink

    in the uber exclusive Chairman’s Room at halftime (the gold ducats) and after the game (white)?

    so merely out of curiosity i said yes and whattya know americas dbag ashton kutcher took a pic

    of me, chris, and chris’s long lost buddy

    but if the agency really knew me (and youd think they would by now) they woulda gotten me

    a Free The Peace (ron artest) tshirt. but no.

    i guess they missed that part of merchant of venice

    where its revealed that all that glitters isnt gold.

    see that kid on the left, hes got a great shirt 

    point four seconds

    but the kid on the right, hes got a better shirt

    because that 0:4 means something very special to Laker fans

    it was game 5, the final game, in the western conference playoffs against the San Antonio Spurs,

    the defending NBA champs.

    a team that had just won it all thanks to Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli and Eva Longoria’s ex husband Tony Parker:

    a frenchman.

    with 28 seconds to go in the deciding game

    (the winner would go play the Detroit Pistons in the finals)

    Spurs at  the White Housekobe bryant scored a ridiculous shot putting the Lakers up with just 4 seconds to go.

    san antone gets the ball, tosses it to Duncan who makes an IMPOSSIBLE shot seemingly at the buzzer

    But No, there’s actually point-four seconds left on the clock

    not one second, 4-tenths of a second.

    basically you have to catch the ball, jump and shoot all in one motion.

    so the Lakers call time out to get it together.

    the Zen Master, phil jackson draws out a play in front of his team.

    who does he have to set something up with? well lets see

    he has a 26 year old kobe bryant, the big diesel Shaquille O’Neal, future hall of famer Karl Malone, or your off guard Derek Fisher. The Glove, Gary Payton will throw the ball in.

    of all those options, Fish would be the last choice, but with Point Four seconds to go he gets the ball

    jumps and turns

    and shoots

    and Lakers win.

    it was the last great moment in the Shaq/Kobe era that netted three rings as the Lakers would get creamed by the Pistons in the finals

    and today the lakers traded derek fisher for a younger guy.

    but dont be too sad, fish leaves with five rings

    and fans who wear his tshirt.

    two good people makes for a good video 

    the l.a. times’ melissa rohlin has a nice personality about her that makes it easy for athletes to want to talk with her. not every sports reporter has that.

    meanwhile the lakers’ ron artest, sorry, Meta World Peace, has such a playful childlike personality that makes it easy for fans to want to listen to him. not every athlete has that.

    yesterday they were both in the laker locker room and Peace dubbed Kobe the King of LA, the clippers’ Blake Griffin the Prince

    and when Melissa asked him what he was, Meta said, “a worthless servant”.

    its sweeter on video than it sounds in print.
