Etcetera

Well a couple a people, including this wun hayso in my house, say my last post was too long. hmmmmp! Fine then be that way! :-)

So what to talk about today? Well I could chat about Rihanna and Jay-Z or rather Rihanna, Beyonce and Jay Z like the rumor mills. Ooh la la! I don't think I believe that Rihanna trying to horn Beyonce though and that's not cause she's bajan or anything but just because of her (Rihanna's) image right now although I do think she is becoming a tad bit too Beyonce-ish in the videos. Which reminds me there is an excellent video floating around out there with Rihanna being punk'd by Mr Demi Moore aka Ashton Kushner. I guess you know you've hit the big times when you get punk'd.

Could also chat about how two politicians in the Czech Republic got into a tussle at a dental conference. Seriously I saw the video on tv yesterday and the health minister just walked up to the other guy sitting at the table and whapax! Nearly slap off the man head. I haven't seen anyone get slapped in the back of their head so viciously since high school. I could only image that happening in a Bajan setting. Big rocks would fly!

Could also talk about basketball. NBA playoffs! The Pistons finally pulled it together and beat the Cavs but I think they will lose to the Heat. The big difference with the Pistons of last year and this year is that Flip Saunders seems at a loss during the playoffs. His record in Minnesota attests to that. If Larry Brown hadn't been such a punk and gone off to New York where he is unliked and unwanted the Pistons would have a fighting chance of getting past the Heat but now... So my prediction is Heat, Mavs in the final with the Mavs losing in 6.

Oh and the Raptors won the NBA draft lottery last night. Finally! Of course they would do in the year with one of the weakest draft classes. Also doesn't help that the consensus top three picks are all forwards and the Raptors are loaded at that position. So in my position as defacto, incommunicado, excommunicated wannabe Raptors GM I propose they do one of the following. Draft LaMarcus Aldridge as your new defensive minded centre, ignore all talk of drafting the next Dirk Nowitzki. Or trade down the draft like we did that year we traded Jonathan Bender to the Pacers and pick up a veteran centre, someone who can rebound and stand there and take charges and draft Rudy Gay or Marcus Williams or someone who can play guard lower down the draft. And if I hear the words Adam Morrison coming out of the mouth of any Raptors official I think its my duty to administer a beatdown.

Oh and the West Indies beat India yesterday again in one day cricket. Unbelievable! Kami ya think we turn a corner? :-)

I really would like the Heat to win, although you are more optimistic than I am.

I think the Windies are on the road to recovery, with a long road to go, many rivers to.. well, you know.

Is what all dem fox deh see inna Jay-Z? A di money mad dem or wha?

princessdominique said...

Yeah she got Punk'd GOOD! She was pulling out her album CD which I thought was corny...just say you have a record don't give someone a CD with NO case! I'm Bajan too so I love her, but the "label" is probably shaping her to copy Be because she's so hot. It's probably not her choice.

its about time raptors caught a break. i just realized that its the second time we got a first pick. we got one in 1996, but because of the jacked up exapnsion draft rules, we got bumped to second, and we chose camby. where is he now? not with us... hahahaha
