What I learned from the NBA Finals

Finally, we are done with Basketball season. Is it just me or does it seem like it never ends? I swear that the playoffs have been going on for 3 months, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when Dino Boy started watching the playoffs. 

 

It’s been a great year for Bay Area sports, the Giants won the world series and now the Warriors are the NBA finals Champions, beating out the Cavaliers in an awesome series. So in honor of their win, here are some fun facts that I’ve learned throughout the playoffs.

 

1. Riley Curry is absolutely adorable. Seriously, all press conferences should feature her, people might actually watch them. 

 

2. A camera lens can do some serious damage

 

3. Steph Curry’s mom, Sonya Curry is 49 years old, 49!!

4. The series features 2 MVP’s going head to head. Lebron James (who has won it four previous times) and Steph Curry who won the award this past year. 

 

5. Steph Curry and Lebron James were born in the same hospital, in the same town! I don’t even want to think what the probability of two people born in the same hospital later becoming MVPs and facing off against each other is.

6. The Warriors have not won an NBA championship since 1975, a 40 year drought (and they had some pretty terrible years in between)

7. The Cavs have never won a NBA championship and the city of Cleveland has not won a sports championship since 1964, a 51 year drought. 

8. The last two minutes of a basketball game take FOREVER.

 

Congrats to the Warriors on their 2015 Championship!



Prepping for baseball season!

Today starts the beginning of one of my favorite seasons: baseball season! Today pitchers and catchers report and so I’m already stocking up on Boston Red Sox goodies! Here are some of my favorites! I also included some men’s shirts in hopes that Dino Boy will just maybe wear a Red Sox shirt as well!

Getting through the Olympics in three easy steps

I’m all for team spirit, healthy goals and fun competitions. What I’m not all for is losing Dino boy for four hours every night.
I can enjoy some sassy figure skating routines but after an hour I’m done, I don’t want to watch women ski around some loop and then shoot at some small hole. I’m just going to be real here, I don’t have an athletic bone in my body. Shooters to me involved something delicious at a bar not some crazy competition in the Olympics….
I decided to merge both the Olympics and alcoholic beverages in a joint post. If only I could figure out a drinking game that incorporates this! Any suggestions?
How to make a White Russian:
1.Mix 1.5 ounces vodka, 3/4 ounces Kahlua and 3/4 ounces of heavy cream in a shaker
2. Serve in a high ball glass over ice
3. Somehow get through the next two weeks of these competing
