I admit… I watched the first quarter of the USA-Australia game and thought "we're not going to let these guys stay close… are we?" Then the second quarter happened.  And Kobe showed up.  And Australia went down… hard.  116-85. These guys are really going after it.  They're playing with a purpose.  (Add third cliche here)....

Leon Loves Us (and Boston)

It's well known that Red's Army loves Leon Powe (i.e. John's huge man crush). And Leon loves us back (Our sources have seen his woman sporting our t-shirts). Now we're learning that the man who single-handedly annihilated the Lakers in Game 2 (21 pts in 15 minutes) loves Boston just as much. An important fact considering Mr. Powe is in the final...

Get Well Yaz

Carl Yastrzemski is in the hospital with chest pains.  Here's hoping he'll be ok. Yaz was my favorite player as a kid (followed very closely by Jim Rice and Dwight Evans).  I'd really like to keep him around for a while longer.... [More]

In Your Face

That photo comes from Red's Army reader, and fellow Greek God Demetri.  It's of a gift shop… at LAX.  As he accurately noted in the email along with the picture… a store at Logan would be looted and burned to the ground if it displayed Lakers championship gear.  And after security was done with the...

Now’s The Time In Beijing When We Dance

Yes, I'm going for the gold today in mildly obscure German pop culture references which highlight my advanced age.  Why?  Because I'm desperately holding on to lost youth as I face my impending mortality… and because I need to do something to make a 106-57 thrashing of Deutschland interesting.  Dwight Howard had 22 and 10.  LeBron...

Oooh, Los Alemanes!

That's the Spanish-language version of this… which I thought would be appropriate as Team USA gets ready to face Los AlemanesThe Germans at 8 am.  I'm as unafraid of these Germans as Mr. Burns is of those.  Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman have led this vaunted squad to a 1-3 record.  'Oooh, the Germans' indeed....

Kobe Still Thinks He’s a GM

  Everyone knows the Lakers flat-out stole Pau Gasol from the Memphis Grizzlies (Kwame Brown, Jarvis Crittendon, 2 first-round picks and the rights to Marc Gasol). But after playing against big, bad Marc Gasol, Kobe Bryant now thinks the Lakers gave up too much: "In hindsight, we probably didn't have to give him up to get... [More]
