Sport is globally relevent

I'm typing on my dinner table. It still smells like the lobster I had bout 8 hours ago.

I've been rushed with this kind of emotion before. And at 19 years old, it's sad that I am too well-acquainted with the feeling of settling. Settling for something less than what you feel you worked for and deserve.

HELL YEAHH I'm talking bout Lebron.

Just list his physicals. He's 6ft. 8in. tall weighs about 285lbs. There is no one in this country and as he proved in the Olympics, THE WORLD, that can stop this man when he drives the lane. For once as a Knick fan, I could have had the best.

I got Ronny Turiaf via sign-in-trade. GoodBye forever David Lee.6ft 10 250 lb.s 27 years of age. Serviceable veteran

Recently, like sports fans everywhere, the bulk of my day has been concentrated on two things, Destination Lebron and the World Cup.

Bad News:
1)Lebron signs with the Heat, leaving the Knicks haplessly defenseless, having no 1st round picks for the next two years and wasting away the last two trying to make the team attractive enough for a man who could have profits in the hundreds of millions.

2) I find out the World Cup Finale will be televised live simultaneously as church conducts Sunday service. I need to make a choice and I'm already heavily leaning one way. I MISSED THE ZIDANE HEADBUTT. I'M ASHAMED TO SAY I MISSED THE LAST WORLD CUP FINAL. I NEED TO SEE THIS ONE.
ARJEN ROBBEN HAS A HEAD JUST AS OR DECIDEDLY MORE SHINY AND BALDING THAN ZIDANE'S. THINK of all the SPORTSCENTER forgetting about Lebron and focusing on what appears to be a volatile yet wildly accepted WC tradition!

You heard it here first. I SHALL SKIPP THE SABBATH. I've done it before. NOttt a big deall. God understands World Cup fever, afterall he did invent it. Give Credit where credit's due.

I'm a Sports Crazyperson
On the first day of school in 9th grade, my history teacher asked the class to look up a question that was nationally relevant and ask it aloud to the class.

I asked him if they should put an asterisk next to Bond's freshly minted all-time leading Home Run mark.

He appeared frustrated and bluntly put that sports is not important enough to merit discussion in a history class.

I disagree.....

Sport takes us into a downright magical place where we can root for the most recognizable faces and the most winningest teams, yet still be filled with the wonder of not knowing what's going to happen next. The men who are able to run, kick, throw, and catch are immortalized. Athletes have been bronzed next to statues of Presidents, prime ministers, writers, and Activists. And at times their busts are infinitely more recognizable than that of a world leader.

When kids are growing up they want to be the next Jordan, Jeter, and Manning. They mimic their mannerisms, the way they move their feet when a defense swarms or how to BEND IT LIKE BECKHAMM, DAMN IT. The future generations of this country aren't pretending to pass legislation like Obama, they're shooting water bottles in the trash cans like Kobe.

That is CULTURAL RELEVANCE. That's authority.

I cry. I cheer. I mourn the passing of legends. I mourn the futility of the modern salary cap era knicks. Hell this is a bad day. Let's go NEDERLANDSSS. ORANGE FOREVER.

So have fun in Miami Lebron, where you'll be playing third chair next to DWADE, and my girl Snooki.
