Talk About Shooting & Scoring! Wow!

I realize Todd Rundgren is an acquired taste. I'm no dummy. I know some folks won't even give him a listen, but at least you guys let me worship T the G occasionally here. I respect that and hope you respect my right to express my opinion on other stuff, too, no matter if you agree or disagree. Rodney King said it best: "Can't we all just get along?"

That being said, let me share with you what I've been watching for a few years that fascinates me to no end.

I don't fancy myself much of a sports girl, but I do happen to like car racing and the NBA.

Last night I was watching a playoff game - Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs, to be specific. I'm not picking sides - so chill out my little San Antonio readers - because frankly I like both teams, but truth-be-told, if the Dallas Mavericks were still in the hunt, I'd be their biggest cheerleader. But that's for another year.

Trying to do some ironing while the game was on, before too long, I found myself enthralled by Steve Nash's playing as usual.


Have you seen this guy in action? He's like a little Energizer Bunny, if you can say 6'1" is little. Once you train your eye on #13, you will practically see contrails coming off Mr. MVP. He's all over the place! He hops. He ducks. He skips. He is amazing!

And kinda cute. Just my opinion.

Next game Saturday night. ABC. 7:00 pm central time.



Annnnnnnnnnd I'm outta here to go see The New Cars (natch with Toddly) Friday night, somewhere in Louisiana. And there will be a casino involved. And my friends S & L. I'm doomed. But what a way to go!
And I'll be home in time to see Steve Nash work his magic on Saturday, too! Bonus!

Happy early weekend y'all!

And to think we let him go? But I cannot forget he is Canadian. ;o)Oh my woe...Mavs and Stars choked early! What will become of my summer? The Rangers? Not an effing chance...

Have fun with Todd the God! Take some crappy cell phone pics to show us!

CruiserMel said...

Sassy - I KNOW! What was Cuban thinking!?!?!? But actually, it's worked out best for both Stevie and Dirk. It's like they both fed eachother while together and now they're reaping the benefits.

Summer? I don't care for baseball either, unless I'm actually there live. Umm....Nascar?

FYI - Oh no, I plan on taking some awesome photos of T the G - our seats are right up front! CruiserMel settles for nothing less where Toddly is concerned.

hapsmysis said...

does this mean you're dumping the dude to go idol worshiping with the girls?

Just want to make sure I've got my facts straight!

Lindystar said...

Are you trying to make your duck jealous with Todd the God?

Just tell him that Todd is technically grandfatherd in.

OK that sounds old, maybe you can find a better way to phrase that. My bad.

CruiserMel said...

Hapsmysis & Lindy - Ohhhhh, J knows where he stands with Todd. We had to get that straight right off the bat. He seems pretty cool with that. But if we're talkin' about the Kas-man, he doesn't know a thing about that one. Heh.

RockDog said...

That dude is sitting on a lot of balls...

CruiserMel said...

Rockdog - No comment.

tfg said...

Is he their token white guy?

Dezdmona said...

Harumph. The Mavs have broken my heart for the last time. I know when I've been taken for a ride.

Now, enjoy The New Cars...at least that's something worthwhile! LOL

See ya at John Mayer?

Sassy Blondie said...

Cruiser, I can't, in good conscience, go with Nascar. I actually went to the TMS once. I nearly died of heat stroke and couldn't hear for three days. Nothing about it excites me, and the fans really scared me...or at least the guys around me did. Anyone who thinks it's okay to slap the ass of a stranger is never okay with me. But it was a trade off: his hand print on my left butt cheek, and my hand print on both of his face cheeks. Stupid bastard...

I am so loving the NBA playoffs this year. Both Western Conference series have been awesome. I couldn't believe Nash's nose! I was like, squealing at the TV.

Sassy Blondie said...

Cruiser, where are the pics of T the G?

CruiserMel said...

tfg - I haven't actually counted, but that's a real possibility.

CruiserMel said...

Dez - you're going to J-May? AWESOME! Yup - we'll be there, squealing like teeny-boppers. Let's chat 'bout it, huh?

CruiserMel said...

Sassy - I'm so sorry Nascar didn't win you over. But I agree to a point about the fans - anyone who shaves a big 3 or 8 in their back hair gives me the pukes.

Also Sassy - check the blog again. TR pic right up top. I've got 47 others...wanna see?

CruiserMel said...

Swishy - Oh my God, wasn't that the grossest thing with his nose? He was chomping at the bit to get back in that game and it seemed he would pass out from bloodloss before they'd let him go back out there. He's so dedicated. I love that about him. I don't want these playoffs to end - it's one of my favorite times of the year! (not because of bloody noses, either)

Sassy Blondie said...

Post 'em all, Cruiser, post 'em all!

And btw, did you see the "brawl" with Nashface and the Spurs?

CruiserMel said...

Sassy - Oh man, poor Stevie. He's that kid that won't stop until they play him and he usually seems so calm until he's riled.....

And Sassy - okay, I'll post a couple of other pics from Friday tomorrow from my office, because of your special request. So check back later Wednesday. Love sharin' me some Toddly Love.
