Brain freeze

It's been a month since I wrote in my blog. I've never written anything earth-shattering yet but have I even run out of average, random, useless thoughts? Or have I just been so busy that I just didn't have the time? Don't know but just to kick start, here are some thoughts. All about sports...

Los Angeles Lakers
I've been a fan since the time I started watching NBA on Star Sports. I've followed them through their early glory days (Magic, Kareem times), the interim lows (before Shak-Kobe), their 3 back-back-back championship run and the lows since. I'm happy to note here that the Lakers are back on top in the Western Conference and playing really well. Most importantly they're playing team ball. Hope they go all the way again this season.

Roger Federer
It's been pretty sad to see the slump that Fed is going through. I just read a little while ago that he had mono through the Aussie Open and has recently only recovered from it. Not using that as an excuse for his loss (he himself isn't so I possibly can't!) but it immediately makes me wonder that if he can make it to the semis of a Grand Slam when far from being a 100%, what could have happened otherwise? Anyway, he has the rest of the year and 3 more slams to bounce back. And a match against his (and my) idol Samras! Good luck!

New England Patriots
Being a New Englander (at least for 8 years) I should have been the happiest person since the advent of Tom Brady into the Pats team. But for some reason, I've always disliked them. I hated to see them winning time and time again. However, this past Superbowl saw them lose to the New York Giants. Not that I am a Giants fan or anything but I was extremely happy. The best part was gloating later to all my 'Pats fan' friends. Spite is a good thing!
