Every Thing Old Is New Again

I was watching the Lakers determine the only Western Conference matchup that’s set to this point by beating the Utah Jazz, and saw that Gatorade Focus Kid Tiger animated commercial. It struck me that the Obi Wan bear character in the spot that acts as Tiger’s Sherpa is really just a combination of Baloo from…

NBA Finals Game 4

The story of these 2008 NBA Finals will revolve around tonight’s game 4 – unless the Lakers can top the Celtics 24 point comeback by coming back from a 3 games to 1 deficit. This was one of those NBA games that is really hard to categorize. The Celtics played absolutely terribly from the tip…
