Why the internet is wonderful

Gather one, gather all, let me tell you a story, let me regale you with a simple yet powerful tale of the wonders achieved when the internet and compassion of (wo)man join in harmonious union. OK, maybe not. But I do have an excellent example of how this interwoven online life we lead is actually…

Laminate flooring is a bugger (or maybe it’s the instructions?). But, finally, it’s done!! Well, technically speaking there are a couple of small jobs to do but that’s the big stuff out of the way. You should’ve seen us when we laid that last bit of flooring, high-fiving like a couple of NBA All-Stars we…

How an NBA player has used blogs to boost his image. It’s not solely about the sport, so might be worth a read. Basically a “good” player has been voted onto the all-star team this year, and some people reckon it’s mainly because of his blog.

A gentleman who likes soft furnishings admits that he doesn’t understand why people watch sport. Reading that it suddenly struck me how much sport I watch, on TV, and how little I mention it here (I don’t even have a “sport” category for my posts). Sure I comment on the footie now and then, basketball…

I’ll be working tomorrow, trudging to work whilst the majority of the country … don’t. I hope you all have something planned or you will be making a mockery of the fact that I’m in work and you’re not. It’s your duty to do something! Sigh. I’m distracting myself at the moment, NBA is on…

I’m not the most patient man. I enjoy shopping at my speed which varies on the task at hand, if I’m browsing for me then I can take all day, but if I have a LIST then get the hell outta my road! Watched some NBA this morning then went shopping. Shopping of the Christmas…

New NBA season has kicked off, and thankfully I now have Sky Sports Extra so can catch some games and highlights. Only problem: Look at the show times!. 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning – that’s criminal!

I’ve long preferred the hoops to the ..ehh… goals.. and being starved of NBA action is killing me, watching grainy 30-sec clips via the NBA website is NOT enough. So my parents to pity on me (and are inflicting this on Louise) and bought as tickets for the Harlem Globetrotters on April 15th. Should be…

Just. It was a tight series between the Lakers and the Kings, but my team held on. They will go into the final series as favourties to 3-peat. I’m worried though. The Nets story is one that you couldn’t write, and despite the dominance of the Western Conference you just never know: NBA.com: FINALS 2002.

Or why “I like to be in America” Reason #14: NBA. I’ve mentioned this before I’m sure, but I REALLY miss my NBA since it moved to Sky Sports Extra here in the UK. As a Telewest customer I can’t get the channel at all. The time I spent in San Francisco was great, I…
