Memorial Day weekend

My weekend was a busy one. First off my younger daughter and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie and I was pleasantly surprised. I was almost expecting the let down I felt from Episode One the Phantom Menace. It delivered what I expected action and entertainment if you have not seen it I highly recommend it. The only downside was the projector broke and there was a five minute delay however on the way out they gave us free passes for another movie. I was so happy about being able to see Ironman for free I tuned out Mrs. Dizzle and the older daughter talking about the movie they went to see; Baby Mama.

Sunday we went to the Iowa Cubs game. It was a little warmer than we thought it would be and this of course let to the corpulent of Des Moines to take their shirts off. During one point my older daughter pointed out the arrival of Sasquatch and asked why is it that hairy men feel the need to show other people their hairy bodies? I did not have an answer for her I am afraid

We hit the jackpot Bulls fans!

With a 1.7 chance of winning the draft lottery and we did it! Now who do we go with? Derrick Rose? Michael Beasley? I think that we need a point guard and Derrick Rose is going to be like Chris Paul and Deron Williams a stud. We have seen what Tyson Chandler has become with a great point guard. Can you imagine what Tyrus Thomas can do with him? I think that adding Rose will eliminate the need for Ben Gordon and Larry Hughes. Hughes will be tough to move because of his contract. Beasley could provide you with 24 pts 12 rebounds a game he would make Tyrus Thomas and Drew Gooden trade bait. I am torn on this one.

NBA Conference Finals

Eastern Conference

I think that the Pistons lucked out by getting the Celtics, I believe they match up better. I like Sheed vs KG I think KG has the slight advantage. I think that Billups and Prince match up nice against Pierce and Allen. This series is going to come own to experience (Detroit) vs desire (Celtics). I don't believe KG, Pierce or Allen have been this deep into the playoffs. This is going to come down to who wants it more, I know KG is hungry I think it will be the Celtics in seven.

Western Conference

This series is tough, you have the defending champs vs the Lakers. Some people say the Spurs are not a dynasty that is nuts. The Lakers on the other hand are loaded with Kobe, Pau and Lamar Odom. However the Spurs have Tim Duncan, who I believe is the best power forward to play the game along with Manu and Tony P. I think it will come down to if Bruce Bowen can contain Kobe. I told my boy GBrizzle Kobe is going to win a trophy, I think he is on a mission and it will be the Lakers in six

Mother's Day in Ames

I am sorry it has been a while since I posted anything but work and the little Dizzettes have kept me busy. Sunday was Mother's Day so after church we took the Mrs Dizzle out for lunch, she opted for Red Lobster which was fine with me. We had to wait about twenty minutes for our table which was fine with me, it was a small price to pay for succulent seafood; as the commercials put it. I put these twenty minutes to good use by people watching. I am not tying to be judgemental but ladies if you are going to wear sandals please take care of your feet. If your toes look like you use them to kill your prey or climb trees to avoid predators please cover them. And secondly if you heels look like I could use them to sharpen knives again please wear shoes.

Ashton Kutcher needs to go away

The other night my daughter and I were watching the Cubs when the commercial for his new movie came on. The little Dizzle looks at me and says let me guess they win the money, they end up living together, fall in love and he does something stupid and he has to go after her and they live happily ever after, how stupid! I am glad that she is smart enough to see this idiot and his movie for what it is.

NBA playoffs recap

If I had just grown a pair and perdicted the the Spurs like I wanted to I would have been 4 and 0 in the West. I believe that Tim Duncan and the Spurs will be too much for the Hornets. I think that Chris Paul will match up with Parker okay but Duncan will be too much for Tyson Chandler. I am goin with the Spurs in six. On to the Lakers versus Jazz; This is tough I think in the end Kobe will prevail in seven. In the East Orlando vs Detroit. I think that Detroit will not make the same mistake they did with Philadelphia, I think that Detroit has too much experience for the Magic, Detroit in six. Cleveland will have to wait until tomorrow to see who the face in the semi finals.
