In about six hours, I will be heading down to the Verizon Center to cover the Wizards/Spurs contest. I want to focus on Tim Duncan coming to town, or Tony Parker and Manu being healthy, and I really want to hear Spurs coach Gregg Popovich wax poetic about any number of subjects, because he is a great talker. And I may actually be able to pull all of those things off (that's what she said).

But despite my attempts to focus on those items, the main reason there will be a massive media mess will have nothing to do with any of the things. They will all be there to discuss this Gilbert Arenas gun story, and it pisses me off. Instead of 10-15 media members fighting for quotes and interviews, there will now be at least 50 people who know NOTHING about the Spurs or the Wizards, they just want to sensationalize an issue that we STILL don't know the truth about. They will clog up the locker and media rooms with their clueless facial expressions, and I can already feel my annoyance level rising and rising. Its a good thing I didn't vow to have a better attitude in the new year, because that resolution would be long gone right about now..

Welcome to my fourth year of blogging!

And oh yeah, I need to buy a good camera, can anyone give me some recommendations? I think that may be my birthday present to myself

And now, I present to you, the first song I played in this new year. I've lost count of the number of times I've played it since then.

Given that i'm not a huge photographer guy, I'd say no more than $300
