The Resurrection of Maxwell

OK so this is definitely off the Soap topic but I had to post.

During a dedication performance for Al Green on the BET Awards last night, Maxwell, yes Maxwell came out to do his rendition of Simply Beautiful.

Here is the performance that a fellow fan uploaded off of YouTube:

This soulful R&B artist has been MIA for some time now. It was definitely a surprise to see him on stage last night.

Yes, the Boston Celtics have won the NBA Championship Finals 131-92.
It was a great game. Much success to the Lakers. But they could not hold
a coin to the great defense and offense of the Boston Celtics.

Series 3-2 Lakers

Ok so the Lakers caught a lucky break. There were plenty of fouls that should have been charged against the Lakers that were in the Celtics favor. The Celtics were supposed to end this tonight.

Well at least, we get to celebrate in Boston on Tuesday when the Celtics whip the Lakers.
See you there.

** Added 6/17/08 - I do hope the series ends tonight, because I need some sleep. :) **

Boston/Lakers Series 2-1

I am not a sore loser because it would not be NBA basketball if the Los Angeles Lakers did not get at least one win off of the Boston Celtics (I will get to their bad playing in a minute).

I am not a fan of the Lakers unless you are talking about the great ones, Magic, Kareem etc. The Lakers came out with big guns last night. Kobe had to get nothing less than 30 points and he did that by end with 36. One thing I am surprised about was how the officials refereed Lamar Odom. Granted since the beginning of this series, the Celtics have ensured that Lamar Odom gets into foul trouble early. But the officials have called some very strange calls against him. For those who watched the game. In the last minute of the game, a charge was called against Lamar Odom when his defender was moving and not standing still to get the charge.

Onto the Celtics, what can I say, two of the big three played like garbage. Yeah I could sit here and say they had an off night. But now is not the time to make excuses from. This is the championships we are dealing with here. Kevin Garnett, all of sudden you don't know how to shot the rock and you want to pass to your teammates. I need you to leave the passing to your guards and stuff the rock in the basket. He was given the chance two times but it was not enough. Paul Pierce, I have no words.

I will say this to close, I have been looking at NBA games and championships and this industry is about money. Don't let anyone tell you different. The players and officials are pushed to make sure these games go the distant or seven games.

Let me know what you thought about the game.
I see Celtics winning either 4-1 or 4-2.

Sunday's MVP - In My Opinion

Leon Powe of the Boston Celtics. This dude had a stellar night. He came off the bench, scored 21 points in 15 minutes. Maybe Kobe or Paul Pierce would have been able to put up such numbers during the regular season, but that did not happen here.

Now I will say I have only watched a few Boston games during the regular season and the highlight people were always KG, Paul & Ray Ray. It was Powe and his tenacity that put Boston way ahead of the Lakers.

What was up with Kobe wanted to play real basketball in the fourth quarter? My hubby, who is a Kobe fan said that the 4th qtr is when Kobe really comes through. Yeah right. He did not watch the whole game and I did. When he saw the points he put down for each qtr, he wanted to know if he played at all? Duh if you were watching the game you would have saw that Kobe played, but the Boston Celtics were not having it.

Game 3 on Tuesday in LA. I am for my boys, but you got to know that LA is going bring the big guns because they are in their territory. Stay tuned.

Boston Won Game 1

Ok all my Boston Celtics fans. We won Game 1. Did you guys see the two dunks that KG put down on Gasol. But Boston has got to know that although they will be playing at home on Sunday, that Kobe will be putting on a clinic if they don't tighten up the scoring.
What was up with PJ Brown being in the game so long? They really need to bring Sam Cassell back since he had a hot hand in the first half. I expect Perkins, Posey and Allen to be scoring more in Game 2.

Good way to shut Kobe down though.
Where my fans at? And the LA Haters , I mean fans are welcomed to post also. NOT

The Price of Parenthood - A CNN Study

Beneath CNN's top news of the Democratic Nomination sits an article that reads, "The Price of Parenthood - Mother's love worth $117,000 per year, study says". You can read the article here.
I probably would have passed this article but decided to take a gander. In brief it states that SAHM work 94.4 hrs/wk. The basis of the dollar amount is due to all the overtime hours we put in for a typical day. And get this a woman that works outside the home makes in comparison (average) over 68K. Now I worked outside the home and have come close to that salary ( I cringe ever time I think about it) But whether you are Mom who works outside the home, stay at home, work at home are far more worth all the rubies and diamonds in the world. There is no dollar amount to equate what my Mother did for me or what I do for my kids now. Although I would like for someone to write me a check for $1,000,000.00 once in a while. LOL

What about you? Is there really a price value for what you do as a mother or what our mothers did for us? Comments are welcome.

Uplift & Encourage Women Day - A Change is Gonna Coming

I watched the Obama speech this morning and watching this man speak lets me know that change is possible and doable as long as we believe. (You can view the speech here). I don't know about you but the Democratic Primary has changed my outlook and perspective on a lot of things:

      • When the road looks rough - we must believe in ourselves

      • When people put obstacles in your way - we must address those obstacles, solve it and move on.

      • When someone discredits what you have done or what you want to do - Don't feed into their evil and wicked ways. Stand by your convictions.

      • When you have fear in the unknown, defeat, failure or success - Do it anyway.

      My favorite definition of Change is - to make radically different. For me it means to do the unexpected and not the same old thing. Many times during Barack Obama's speech he mentioned that we need to do something different in Washington. Not adhering to the same old thing.

      This time in history is an indication to all of us men, women and children that a change is possible, as long as we believe.

      This post was not promote the political candidate. Although I will be voting for him in November :) LOL. The intent is to show that change is all around us and we have to either adapt or stay in the same place we are in.

      What is your take on change, do accept it or fight it tooth and nail?
