I’ll start first with the apology. I’d like to apologize to LeBron for picking the Chicago Bulls to defeat him and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2nd Round of this season’s NBA Playoffs. I can’t think of too many times where I went against a team that LBJ was on other than when he’s recently played the New Orleans Pelicans. Surprisingly the Cavs outlasted the Bulls and then swept the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals. Now Cleveland is set to face the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. The Warriors were the best team during the NBA’s regular season and have kept up their form during the 2015 NBA Playoffs. I look for Steph Curry to lead the way offensively as he’s done but it’ll be key to see the health of Klay Thompson. He’ll likely see some minutes defending LeBron along with Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and a host of others. I hope we get a good series but I think it’ll be over in 5 or 6 games.
Included in all of the sports drama in May was a very important event in my life. On May 24, I officially entered #washedlife but I must say my Wedding Day was anything but. We had plenty of ordeals to overcome on that glorious day. As expected it started with none of the Wedding Party showing up on time (well Raven was on time lol), from there it was tuxedo malfunctions for a few fellows, and finally there was the threat of rain! With all of this you’d have thought the day was doomed but we made our way through. The Wedding Party started trickling in and the laughs began. We all had a few beverages to ease the tension and long wait, thanks to a few heads up gentlemen. A few safety pins and good fortune helped fix a few britches. The rain was also generous. The ceremony was set to take place outside but with a little over an hour and a half to spare the skies parted. The rain didn’t last long but was very heavy and amazingly the decorations held up quite well. After the downpour my lovely wife to be arrived and some more pre-ceremony pictures were taken while I was kept out of view. The ceremony included many goofballs and goof ups but it was still great. After the ceremony we took more pictures right before the impending monsoon. The rain poured outside but inside kids and adults (young and old) danced all over the place. With my dad stealing the show while “Wipe Me Down” played. It was a great day and night, one that I won’t forget. Keeping with the sports theme I’ve decided to give out a few accolades. My wife of course was MVP (I’m not dumb). Rookies of the Year went to the kids. They did great during the ceremony and danced all night during the reception. Coach of the Day honors went to my dad. He was smart enough to pop the trunk and whip out some steak, chicken, and hamburger buns from that he had saved from the night before. I heard almost everybody got them a sandwich. 6th Man honors went to Nic. He’s my wife’s cousin and was pretty much called on for whatever errand she needed taken care of. I’m about to mix sports but if you know her and saw pics of my “Best Wo(Man)” Karmen Charmain you’d understand why she was the clear cut Heisman Trophy winner. Nic was discouraged by the fact that she was “for everybody” but even he said “Kodi, you ain’t gone believe it when you see Karmen.” Karmen got the most votes and looked great. Not sure when I’ll see her with makeup and “brows on fleek” again but I enjoyed it.
I end this entry by paying homage to “Messi”. Lionel Messi is arguably the greatest player to ever touch a soccer field. The things that he does while on the field are just majestic. It’s hard to explain and I can only suggest that you watch and be amazed. I’m just thankful I was able to spend the month of May watching the 2 sports that I love most, spend time with the people that I love most, and tie the knot with the woman that I love most. Folks that’s the best hat trick of all.
