Your mind’s not playing tricks on you. This post’s title is similar to the previous one. We just can’t be bothered to try this afternoon. We also don’t have some crazy wife waiting at home to stab us because we got lazy while blogging. Too bad the same can’t be said for a Malaysian man who’s in the hospital thanks to his wife and a kitchen knife.
The unidentified man was stabbed twice in the chest by his wife after coming home late from watching Manchester United play the Malaysian national team. He promised to come home immediately after the game but didn’t show up until after midnight. In his wife’s defense, she did take him to the hospital after stabbing him. Police are still deciding whether to file charges against her. That’s some mighty fine police work, Lou.

Good thing Stevie Wonder’s blind. He’d be crushed if he could see how the Lakers and Spurs are abandoning superstition. Whatever happened to not touching the championship trophy until you win it? No respect I tell ya.
Kobe’s molesting the Larry O’Brien trophy during photo shoots like a Colorado hote….ah that’s too easy. Meanwhile Kevin Garnett and Adidas are putting out special edition Team Signature Commander shoes for the NBA Finals.
Adidas will produce only eight pairs per game of this shoe to be sold at retail (as few as 28 and as many as 58, depending on the length of the Finals). One pair autographed by KG will be auctioned off on NBA.com after the Finals, with the proceeds going to NBA Cares community partners in the Boston area.
The shoe won’t be launched until October but Garnett plans to wear a pair with the LOB trophy on the side. It seems like he’s tempting fate but humping the trophy has to be much worse. Take note, sports books.
‘‘All season long it has been about we and not me, so as we head into the NBA Finals I wanted to do something special for the Boston community. That is why we came up with this limited edition shoe,’’ Garnett said in a statement. ‘‘Since day one, the fans of Boston have made me feel like family, so to do this and be able to give back to them is a great honor.’’
Auctioning off a pair of shoes should make KG as loved as Dave Roberts in Boston win or lose. The proceeds could surely feed a small African country like Djibouti or Uranus. We’re only playing. At least he’s doing something for the community unlike ODB.
