It's been a while....

It's been a while since ESPN and I have worked out on a regular basis and last night we started a new gym. It's more of a martial arts gym but the have all kinds off classes like Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, Kickboxing, Boxing, and Fight fit classes (circuit training). We did the circuit training class yesterday and my chubby ass almost could get out of bed because of how sore I was, but it's a great feeling now if it would only stop raining I could ride my bike and all would be right with the universe.
On another note BFE is less than 6 months away we should probably start planning soon and bombard Lip-Lock-Me with annoying emails!!! Until next time biatches!!!

And The Crowd Goes Silent!!!

In the midst of the Lakers longest winning streak in 4 years the Lakers 20 year old center Andrew Bynum goes down with a knee injury. Much of the Lakers recent success has been attributed to Bynum's elevated play. He's been a Monster in the middle averaging a double double (13.1 points, 10.2 rebounds). On Sunday versus the Memphis Grizzlies Bynum was going up for a rebound and landed on Lamar Odom's foot twisting his knee on the way down. Today, it was released that he will be out for at least 8 weeks. That leaves Kwame Brown in the middle and the Lakers without there second biggest threat. This could not have come at a worse time considering the Lakers have long road trip coming up and their next 3 games are against the top three teams in the west Phoenix, San Antonio, and Dallas. If they can keep some of the momentum they have and get through the next stretch they should be alright, but it's going to be tough. Bynum get well soon, please!!!!

Sport Betting

I heard something funny on the radio today about gambling on sports. I was listening to the Mike Tirico Show on Espn radio. A guy name Erik Kuselias was filling in for him and they were discussing why he suggested to a friend why they should pick West Virginia to beat Oklahoma. Apparently some of Erik's friends were wondering who they might pick because they hadn't heard any specifics on that particular game. Then he goes into this description about “the secretary rule”. Basically, if you are ever involved in a betting pool at work and you want to know who’s going to win break into the office of the person who is running the pool and look to see who all the secretaries picked then pick the opposite. He went on to say “If there were a pool about the West Virginia/Oklahoma game every secretary and their mother would have picked Oklahoma because it was too easy”. He told his friends to take West Virginia and obviously it worked out, but it’s still pretty funny.
