Well I was late getting here this morning, but I made it in safely. I'll spare you the details of my evening, but it was damn good,and there's a pep in my step, a smile in my heart, and all that other good stuff related to seeing someone you are in love with. Life is good.

But before I saw my ladyfriend last night, I had to watch this clip of Dwyane Wade getting hurt over and over again. Now I respect Wade's game, and he just won a championship along with Shaq. But you CANNOT cry on the bench, and you definitely CANNOT be taken off of a basketball court in a wheelchair if no paralysis is present. I'll stop short of calling him a baby, but that is very very punkish. Now granted, I've never had a separated shoulder, but I've seen both basketball and football players have separated shoulder injuries much worse than Wade, and they are able to walk off..they are in pain, but they walk off. Wade was crying, and a wheelchair was rolled out for him. This kind of thing can also break the morale of a team. I know I'm sounding harsh, but I'm this is based on the many times I've watched a sporting event and seen people injure their shoulders. Never have I seen the level of drama Wade displayed. I wanted to scream "Stay up Kane" at my tv screen.

That's all I have for today, clearly my mind is elsewhere..

See I like to get down jack..

Dwayne is one of my favorite players so stop dissin' him this instant! I don't think he was being dramatic or anything - he was just in pain. That's a real man - not some pseudo superhero.
