Happy Times

by - October 26, 2009 - - 3 Comments »

We are truly living in great times. It really doesn’t get much better. The NFL is in full swing, the Yankees and Phillies are playing in the World Series and the NBA season is nigh. But this isn’t just a typical convergence of events, there is some extra special stuff going on…

–A-Rod has ascended. I have never seen such a turnaround. He is actually playing like the best player in baseball. This dude used to approach big at bats like a little kid does the dark, sans night-light. He now possesses the death stare. I really have no idea what could have happened. Did admitting his transgressions (kind of) lift some sort of weight from his shoulders? Was his wife that overbearing? Is Kate Hudson’s loving that special? Did he catch some swag hanging out with Jay-Z (he now walks up to two Hov songs about already being great–Jigga has a lot of those)? Whatever happened, I think the old A-Rod is dead. Allow him to reintroduce himself…his name is Alex Rodriguez and he is a New York Yankee.

–The NBA couldn’t be a better television show than it will be this season. The Lakers alone should provide hours of entertainment. Kobe Bryant and Ron Artest? It could be love, comedy, tension and action all at once. Plus, you have Mr. Lamar Odom-Kardashian. There will be a lot of zen for Phil Jackson to master.

–I believe this may be LeBron James’ best season. For the first time in years he didn’t owe his summer to Team USA allowing him rest and work on the holes in his game. Plus, there is that whole impending free agency thing. Nothing he does this year would surprise me.

–The elite quarterback crop is sick right now. Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, Brett “the Gunslinger/Jesus” Favre, Eli Manning, Donovan McNabb, Aaron Rodgers, Kurt Warner and Philip Rivers could all be heading for the playoffs. That deserves an old school Borat Nice!

All that and South Park and Curb are in midseason form. Things are pretty, pretty, pretty good.
