I love LA!

Moving back to something I can wrap my mind around without a lot of confusion, I love LA!  The Paribas Open gets underway in Palm Springs, CA and it is the biggest tennis tournament in the world out of the four Major Grand Slam events.  It would be near the top of my bucket list to make a trip out west and see this event.  Unfortunately, I do not know if I will make it in time to see what is at the top of my bucket list, see Roger Federer play in person before he retires!  Well, he will be there this upcoming weekend, next week and into next weekend (hopefully) along with all the other top players in the world on both the men’s and women’s side of tennis.  Coverage begins today on Tennis Channel and will continue for eight days.  The semifinals and finals will then switch over to major network coverage.  I wonder if Fed’s good buddy Gavin Rossdale and his wife Gwen Stafani will be in attendance.  They usually are.  What about actor Ben Stiller and his wife, supporting Rafael Nadal.  This is just so cool!!!

Speaking of LA, Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant was on Jimmy Kimmel last night.  We all know I am a Lakers fan and a Kobe fan.  Kimmel asked Kobe if he had any misgivings about guaranteeing the world that the Lakers would make the playoffs, and did any of his teammates in the locker room look  at him and say, NO, do not go there!  Gotta love Kobe’s response.  Kobe said NO!  Moreover, if anyone on the roster had a problem with that kind of proactive attitude, he would immediately call the Buss family (owners) and tell them, this guy has got to go, NOW….LOVE IT!!!  Go Lakers!
