Someone please find me the key to open this lock. The door has been shut too tightly for me to feel comfortable, and I can feel the distance between me and the other side growing.
The NBA lockout is still in effect. Its website, NBA.com, has an entirely new, yet strangely outdated looking layout for the homepage. SO many highlights and featured articles about the old school boys are making the site’s headlines, instead of usual chatter about free agency, summer balling, and rookie updates this time of year. My brother pointed out to me that even the player’s pictures have been removed from their pages. Really, I’m not going to forget what Ray Allen looks like.
I find myself checking the NBA’s website less and less each week, hence the distance between me on one side of the door and the NBA on the other with a heavy lock in the middle. Prior to the lockout, I’d open a tab for NBA.com as often as my Gmail account. The lack of updates and newsworthy posts is rubbing off on me, unfortunately, so the following is what I have to share, relevant (slightly) to the theme of this blog.
It’s ironic that in the wordsearch I was doing earlier today entitled “What’s Your Game?” (I picked up a new hobby while eating meals instead of watching T.V.), I noticed that many sports and games were listed, but one popular form of recreation was missing– basketball.
I was completely apalled and refused to start the puzzle until I scribbled “BASKETBALL” in its appropriate spot in the alphabetically ordered list of words to find and added my own row of letters at the bottom of the puzzle to rectify such an injustice. As I made my way down the column, I discovered the word “HOOPS,” quickly circled it in the puzzle, and checked it off the list.
Please…find me that key, fast!
