New wheels, no really actually wheels this time

I’ve been busy, so this bike has been sitting around in the garage. But, I’m getting some new wheels built for this thing. I’ve already gotten the first one built and it’s ready to go.


New wheels

I told myself that I wasn’t going to do it, but I found this frame on ebay and it was a great deal.  I even love the color. I had the LBS put the headset on, but the rest I’m planning to do myself. I already picked up some 75’s for it. 

NBA Finals

The NBA finals are about to start. Last year the last thing that I wanted was for the Heat to win. I’m originally from Cleveland, so the last thing I wanted was for LeBron to win a championship right away. I wanted him to suffer for his “decision” and his manufactured team. This year, less so. Personally, I hope that he wins a championship. He’s a great player. I think that he should have a championship ring. He was arrogant, but he had suffered for it. He was made to wander the desert last year. He had to wait. He did everything that he had to. He spent the off-season working on his play in the post.
Of course, I would love for the thunder to win. The problem is the rest of the Miami Heat. I don’t really want them to win. Especially Wade or Chalmers. I would rather that they kept suffering. Ideally, LeBron would leave for a different team, and then win in the first year.

LeBron James and Northeast Ohio

Let me just start off saying that I wouldn’t deny LeBron the opportunity to make as much money as he possibly can where ever that may be. That said….

What an ass!
He grew up in Akron. If he paid any attention at all growing up, he knows what it means for him to play in Cleveland. There’s a real history of sports letdowns, and this is just another on top of it. But more than that, it’s just the way that he went about it. People can argue over whether he’s the best player, or if he should have built a team around himself, but for Clevelanders that’s just scenery to keep people talking about it.

Lot’s of us left Cleveland, and lots of us discus how bad things there are and how things are better elsewhere. But that’s done between ourselves, and it’s never done in public. And if you’re not from there, you can’t say anything. With everything that’s been going wrong there, you know that there’s not a whole lot going for the people there, and that you’re one of the few things around that keep people’s minds of their problems. You at least have the decency to at least let them know beforehand that you’re not going to stay. But you don’t leave like that, because like it or not, that’s where you’re from and you don’t forget that.
