What's the ******* Point?

What's the point of getting up in the morning? What's the point of getting up at all? Why do anything? Why do I need a job? Seriously what's the point? There really is no point.

Some people are born into this world and everything is there for them. They have life on a silver platter and they would have to be an idiot to ****** it up. I'm so damn sick of seeing these little prick 16 year old kids driving around in a freakin BMW or a F-350 truck that gets 8 damn miles to the gallon. And when they wreck that car just go by em' another 60K car tomorrow not a problem. These damn kids are born in to the world millionaires because of there trust funds and there custom house that have two spiral staircases leading into there living room that's bigger than my entire house. You could literally strip these kids today and go trade in there clothing for 750 dollars because all they @@@@@@@ wear is abercrombie, fossil, and tommy hilfiger. They all go to prestigious schools that cost 40K a year, along with that they get there parents personal credit card to go $$$$ of money. I'm not saying by any means this is the correct way to parent kids because it's not by any means. I'm just so sick of hearing all this bull S*** about how hard your life is. AWW poor baby, you had to settle for the Mercedes instead of the freakin Ferrari. "I feel so bad for you!"

I drive a light Green Mercury Mini-Van with grey leather interier. Inside I have make shift stero serving as my amazing surround sound system, it plugs into my cigarette lighter into a power convertor. I'm fine with my transportation, it gets me where I need to go. Would I like a better car of course! Tell me who aspires to one day drive a hand me down mini-van. I'm not one to complain about something like this. This is actually my first time to bring up my car situation at all because I really don't care. I'm simply making a point, hold on I'm getting there. When almost everyone else I know(I don't know weither to consider them friends or not, some are) gets a new car and I keep the one I have with no complaints. No, I'm not saying I would expect my father to buy me or even help me buy a freakin Mercedes that's stupid and pointless but a Toyota Camery would be nice, even a used one. I wear cheap clothes that aren't 400 dollars for a pair of jeans. Do I care that I don't have 400 dollar jeans, no. I don't want that, that's ridiculous. I saved my father 20K last year by going to a community college, is that a problem no but a whole bunch of people I know went off to school last year and blew thousands. I know a guy who paid tution and then changed his mind, blew 5K. His parents were fine with it, we'll send ya somewhere else hunny. If I did that I might as well go hang myself.

Here's my point. I've describe parents who spoil there kids and parents who provide the bare min. Which ones right? Neither. Find the middle ground and then I think you have it. I understand my examples are embellished but that's to help make my point.

Now why am I so pissed? Let's see. My father is a greedy bastard. I hate my father. He's a sad person who lives a sad exsistance and I have no pity on him because he's his own worst enemy. My father isn't going to pay for me to go to college. Is my father poor you ask? lol. No. He currently has the best job he's ever had in his life, making 6 digits a year and having already made hundreds of thousands in the stock market.

What now? I won't go back to community college that's for damn sure and I'm certainly not staying in Houston. So I don't know. I'm so tired of fighting. I'm so sick of the on going shit that never ends. Maybe my father(notice I don't say "dad", you have to earn that title, **** father is even a stretch) when he's an old piece of shit will regret the way he treated me because I certainly won't be taking care of his ass. So what now??? Who knows.

Vegas sounds lovely!

A Choker, The Birth of A Superstar, and A Pissed off Billionaire! Does It Get Any Better?

<---The Pissed off Billionaire














The Superstar ----->





<--The Choker




Pictures really are worth a thousand words. I could not be more thrilled how the NBA Finals ended up. What amazing drama the past few weeks basketball has given us. One thing is certain and that is that the name Dwayne Wade will not be forgotten because of the outstanding performance he gave in games 3,4,5,6(in games 1,2 Wade struggled because he was battling the flu.) of the NBA Finals. Wade adveraged 34.7 pts(more than MJ did) throughout the finals and put on a Jordan like performance which is why he was the MVP of the Finals. Wade having come out of such an elite rookie class that had big name players such as Lebron James and Carmello Anthony, Wade has been somewhat overlooked. Wade didn't simply out-play the Mavs in the finals, he imposed his will upon the games and willed his team to victory. The better team did not win in my opinion, rather the team that wanted it more won. The Heat clearly wanted it more and that's apparent having come back from an 0-2 deficit which only two other teams in NBA history have done. I could not think more highly of Wade, he's an insane basketball player and also a class act guy. For being only 24 years old, a millionaire, a husband, and father, and now a champion he conducts himself well. I'm happy for him.

I do not like the Mavs never have and pretty sure I never will. I cannot stand Mark Cuban and the childish way he conducts himself and his basketball team. His cocky attitude I believe cost his team the title. After Game 2 the Mavs lead the series 2-0 and looks as thought they would head off to Miami and take care of business, the dreaded "Sweep" word was even thrown around on sports talk radio. Cuban being the cocky billionaire he is, went ahead and set up a parade route in Dallas for that following week, the day after game 4 would've taken place. Cuban also was invited on the David Letterman Show after game 2, he went of course and brought his cockiness with him taking shots at the Coach of the Heat, Pat Riley. He also went on and took shots at other various people. Basically he sounded as though the Mavs had already won the championship and all was right with the world. What Cuban didn't plan for was Game 3 with 6:30 left to go in the fourth quarter.

The Mavs up by 13 at the 6 minute mark, would end up losing that game. Who had a chance to win it? Dirk Nowitzki.(who's shooting durning the finals was pathetic) Two free throws make em' both and it's basically sealed shut, he makes the first and Dirk who is a 90% free throw shooter, misses the second. Choker! I'm not going to get in to all the details of the other games but I will say that this was the defining moment in the series. Six minutes and thirty seconds left in the fourth quarter of game three. If the Mavs close out that game like any team should when you're up by 13 in that spot, this series would have been over. No way Miami comes back from 0-3, no team has. That was not the only reason the Mavs choked and lost four straight but Game 3 was the momentum shifter. This was one best NBA finals series I've seen in maybe 5 years, it was extra special because I got to watch Mark Cuban squirm.

Cuban also charged on to the court in game 5 just as the game had ended to yell at the refs for a call Cuban didn't agree with. After yelling at the refs Cuban proceeded to stare down David Stern, the commissioner of the NBA. This outburst costed Cuban 250K. lol. Bringing his lifetime total fines paid to the NBA up to 1.7 million dollars. Chump change for Cuban! Cuban is a distraction to his team, and I do honestly believe that he is partically to blame for his teams crumble. The Mavs become the third team in NBA history to lose the NBA finals when leading 2-0.

I would personally like to thank the Heat for not allowing trash such as Cuban to hold the Larry O'Brien trophy. That would have been a sad day in NBA history, thank goodness it didn't happen.

Possibly the Ugliest German Ever?



Ok so maybe that's a bit mean but for real that guy is one ugly German but he is certainly a talented basketball player. Last night Dirk Nowiztki scored 50 points against the Suns to go and win a pivotal game 5 in the Western Conference Finals. Dirk is one of those guys that you hate to play against him but if he's on your team you love him. The dude doesn't miss a shot or atleast it seems that way. Whenever he shoots the ball the only question is weither or not the balls going to touch the net. Dirk has really turned into an even better offensive player than expected with the help of Avery Johnson as his coach. Also another possibly is the who used to play for the Mavs absense of Steve Nash who was not resigned by the owner of the Mavs, Mark Cuban, who now consquently plays for the Suns and has thrived playing with the Suns earning back to back MVP awards. The absense of Steve Nash has allowed Dirk to take ownership of this Dallas team therefore improving his overall game. However great of an offensive player Dirk is he's still a defensive liability and I do mean "liability" because of his lack of defensive skills. He still creates a match up nightmare on the offensive end because of his size(7ft) and the fact that he can shoot from anywhere on the court including three point land. Dirk Nowiztki made 13.8 million dollars this year, I guess he's worth it. I'm sure multi-billionaire owner Mark Cuban has no problem paying Dirk's saliary. Quite a player he is but there are still several players I would take before him but he's up there in most talented players in the NBA.

Is there a athlete in any sport at anytime that you would consider a sports idol? Meaning a individual that transcends his/her sport and is someone that comes immediatly to your mind. Leave me a comment on who you think that would be, and you can only choose one.
