Food for Thought I

So here we are in the middle of the NBA playoffs.  Make no mistake about it, I am a sports fan, but not a pro basketball fan.  I have my reason, and i  prefer college hoops.  I believe they give it more heart.  Anyway not to get too far off track.  usually when you set up the playoffs the top seeded team always plays the lowest seeded team. That holds true for every round.  If the number eight (8) team upsets the number one (1) team they would then play the next highest seed left.  However, that does not seem to be the case in the NBA this year.  The Memphis Grizzlies upset the San Antonio Spurs in the first round and The Los Angeles Lakers won their first round match-up.   With the Grizzlies being number eight (8) and the Lakers being number two (2), it would only stand to reason that they would meet in the second round.   The Lakers are playing the number three (3) seeded Mavericks, while the Grizzlies are playing the number four (4) team the Thunder.  I have a theory.   I believe the powers that be in the NBA would love to match the Lakers up with a lower seeded team in the conference finals. There by guaranteeing the Lakers a better chance of going back to the finals.  If the Lakers do end up playing in the conference championship.  It is possible they could play the Grizzlies.  This could be a marquis match-up, due to the fact that, the Gasol brothers would be playing each other.  Also, if the Lakers happen to make it to the finals and play against the Miami Heat the league would get their Lebron-Kobe match-up the have so desperately wanted.  In other words the fix (to a degree) was on.  Unfortunately for the powers that be, the Lakers lost game one of their series to the Mavericks. (insert evil laugh here).

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
