I haven’t blogged in a while. Working seven straight days will do that to you. No big deal, though. I love my job and feel fortunate to have a job in this economic climate.
I decided to work Super Bowl Sunday despite originally having that day off. I’ll probably watch the first half at home before heading to the office. It’s an exciting day to be at the office, frankly. My folks are coming to visit this weekend, but chances are they’ll head back to Farley before the end of the game. Even if they spend the night, I still can hang out with them all day Sunday before I leave.
The Lakers are getting healthy and playing well. They demolished the Spurs on Sunday at Staples — that was impressive. Kobe didn’t even have to play the fourth quarter.
When the Lake Show is healthy, the depth is unreal. Trevor Ariza and Jordan Farmar could be stars for other teams, and they’re on the Lakers’ second unit. I love watching those two guys play. They do UCLA fans proud.
Ariza, in particular, is an animal on both ends of the floor. I’m very interested to see how good he can be in the years to come.
Maisa had her four-month checkup today. She got three shots and cried like crazy. Real tears! It was sad to see her in so much pain, but she’s doing OK now. Sleeping, in fact.
Jill is doing so much better this week. Thanks for all your prayers. She still has to let that fracture heal for quite some time. She’s happier now, though, and able to do a little more physically each day.
I believe Dodger pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in Glendale, Ariz., in about 20 days.
Manny Ramirez still is unsigned. I’m wondering if he’ll play half a season, a la Roger Clemens. That would increase Manny’s bargaining power, I would think.
The Bums’ first Spring Training game is Feb. 25 vs. the Cubs at Mesa, Ariz.
