Two things happened in sports yesterday. One, Kobe Bryant came back, and scored 38 points, but the Lakers lost. Two, Mark McGwire signed a contract extension without an agent, for less than he could have gotten.
I don’t know, both things make me happy. I’m sorry, but Kobe makes me angry with his ball-hogging personal glory seeking ways. It just makes me happy that when Shaq is out with injury, the Lakers struggle, but when Kobe is out, the Lakers do well, other people step up, they win. I hope it makes him realize something.
And McGwire is just a good guy. I don’t know, he realizes that after a certain point, money doesn’t mean anything anymore, and he says that the bottom line is that he’s happy where he is. That, and thinking about the team, is just a refreshing attitude in sports.
