SPORTS: Lakers going to the finals
Am I a Lakers fan? No. I'm just a sports fan that likes a good game. However, since the Lakers are the closest NBA team, I tend to root for them instead of the team they are playing. This Western finals was interesting -- Minnesota, the old home of the LA Lakers, was the theoretical favorite although I'm sure the odds in Vegas had them as underdogs. And I think they felt the pressure.
The NBA is extremely boring to watch. Thus TiVo is the answer. Fast forward through the first half except for the last 2 minutes of each quarter, fast forward through all the commercials and timeouts, fast forward through free throws, and potentially watch the entire game at 2x speed. But last night we watched it in real time at a party.
I'm certain I'll be watching the finals in TiVo time. Go Lakers!
