Sports Talk with Dave

Awww today is a beautiful day. Take a look outside you see the sun? yep a good day. hell even if you see clouds and rain it's a good day. You know why? because the Lakers are in the finals AGAIN!!!!

Thanks right this is about the NBA again. What have we learned this playoffs? the Nuggets are better then anyone thought, no really if Carmelo decides to be a star and work harder they might just be the number 2 team in the west. We learned that the Celtics will not be winning another championship anytime soon. i understand that KG was hurt and I missed him screaming on the court (although seeing him scream in a suit was even more scary). Even his crazness can't over come the fact that they getting old. Ray Allen can only save them in the last seconds so many times. On a related note I fully respect Ray after that bulls series (which seems like a lifetime ago) Dude was clutch for the celtics, he should come play for the lakers.

We also learned that Lebron is leaving the Cavs ASAP!!! you see how he walked off the court? dude was walking like he just wasted a year of his life. I'm happy they lost i was rooting for the Magic, I'm putting Lebron in the Peyton Manning zone of people who are great and likeable but I don't want to see win.. lol I'm a hater!! The Cavs took advantage of a weak Eastern conference. They looked great until they played a quality team. Long story short i'm believing the rumors of Lebron, Wade and Bosh all agreeing to going to the knicks next summer.

Lastly we learned that the Magic just might be the best team in the NBA... I'm serious, Dwight Howard is the best big man in the NBA and nobody can guard him. If he got a lil Charles Barkley/Shaq attitude he'd be unstoppable. Their shooters actually shoot and hit and they have a ex AND1 player running the point. They actually remind me of the Lakers with Shaq. What's not to like? I even like that Pietrus dude coming off the bench. Their coach looks like Ron Jermey matter of fact the only thing I don't like about the magic is that they have JJ Reddick on their team (I hate duke lol).

I'm scared for my Lakers, The magic beat the celtics in a game 7 in boston, they stepped all over the prematurely crowned Cavs and they might just be too high to know they shouldn't win. oh and the fact that Lamar Odom has a crazy sugar additction. Did you see that? dude eats candy ALL DAY!!! he has a person assistant to go candy shopping for him. he needs it layed out in the car after practice. He wakes up in the middle of the night to eat skittles, this explains his up and down play. he needs a bucket of life savers on the bench through out the game.. lol he need to be drinking kool-aid instead of gatorade.. lol

Anyway The Magic will run the Eastern conference until David stern forces that super Knicks team to happen. Then nobody will will a championship but the Knicks for the next 7 years. This year the Lakers take it in 6 games, Nobody wants to see Kobe crying on the sidelines again.

I still cook..

I still cook. Despite the lack of Cookin with Dave (CWD) episodes. Every now and then people ask me about it and all I can say is I'm waiting on my cousin to edit the video. We've had 2 episodes filmed for months that are just gathering dust.

The truth is that the whole show is about him. It only started to give him some experience filming. So what started out as a "lets just have some fun" kinda thing turned into a real production. We talked about having guest cooks and assistants, I made jokes about getting picked up by the food network, We viewed other internet cooking shows as competition. We wanted to make the show great. I was taking off work to film and really taking it serious. I felt like it was MY show. Then I realized that this was not MY dream but my cousins. Why was I pushing him? He should have wanted it more then me. He should have been promoting it more then me he should be pushing ME to make a better show. it was going to be his portfolio. this was about his talent behind the camera, not mine behind a stove. So we sat down had a talk and basically I left it in his hands. Where before I would push him to get stuff done, now I just let it slide. Whenever he decides to edit the last 2 episodes I'll post them. We could have filmed me making ribs but why? I end up losing money helping him get some experience, that he may or may not even want.

So CWD is on hold. Until my producer decides he wants to continue the show or cancel it.

Anyway, I've been slipping on my posting. I'll try to get back in the groove this week. I really don't have much to post about.
