The last time the All-Star Game was in Los Angeles, Brad Miller led the Western Conference to a 136-132 victory. This year, we hope to bring you some of that same goofy, awkward flavor. Wish us luck.
As such, today’s going to be pretty slow. I’m traveling out to El Lay and the other TBJ bros are shooting things. (With cameras, not guns.) That means no show, very few posts and a general lack of content for the entirety of Thursday. Sorry, but it’ll be worth it because we’ll have lots of stuff throughout the weekend. Videos, posts, basically anything that’s great.
The Basketball Jones is turning five-years-old and we’re ready to celebrate, dammit!
Come on down to Toronto’s historic El Mocambo on January 21, 2011 to see TBJ perform an entertaining live show … and then stay late to party with Skeets, Tas, JD, Matty O, Trey and a few hundred friends.
Depending on where you live, consider this a premature, perfectly-timed or belated Happy New Year from all of us here at TBJ. The Fix will be back on Tuesday morning and regular posting resumes Wednesday. We’ll also be debuting our motto for 2011 — “To be the best you have to be the best.” Astute, for sure.
Have a good one. Enjoy the Snooki drop. See you in 2K11.
Hey, if Sheed wants us — big people, little people, everybody — to have a Merry Christmas, I think we should have a Merry Christmas. I, for one, wouldn’t want to make him mad.
As such, there’ll be slim pickings around these parts. You’ll get “Best Of” shows for both The Fix/TBJ TV and The Overdose, but that’s it for today. Next week, we’re off Monday and Tuesday then back for the rest of the week, just maybe not quite as heavy on the posting. Similar plans for post-New Year’s Day but we’ll talk about that in the New Year. Auld lang syne, and such.
So have a Merry Christmas and/or any other appropriate holiday which you may or may not celebrate. Don’t forget to watch all those games on Christmas Day that LeBron James and Phil Jackson hate so much. We’ll all catch up soon to chat about your favorite presents. Be safe.
My buddy Richard Hamilton’s got a line on a Thanksgiving hookup and he wants to know if you want in. Don’t worry about where it came from. He knows a guy, that’s all I can say.
I can also say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone living in the States. It’s the best holiday, so things will be pretty slow around here for the next couple of days. The weekly show is still on because Canadian Thanksgiving was a month ago, but other than that, not much will be happening until Monday.
Be safe. Wear loose pants. And if Rip seems antsy, it’s only because he’s drank so many Cherry Pepsis that he can barely stand still.
