Day 28 in L.A. (Beat L.A., Kobe You Suck!)

Today represented what Sundays are supposed to be like. I probably would've spent the whole day working until my roommate told me her friends had an extra ticket for a pre-season Laker game. I took on that offer pronto. The ticket was brought to me by Angelica and Pernell. They picked me up around 4:45pm and we headed on our way.

Pernell & I in front of the Magic Johnson monument at the Staples Center.
On the way there I found out we were attending a double header. The first game was the L.A. Clippers vs The Denver Nuggets.

This game wasn't that exciting. The Clippers were close to winning at one point but they found a way to lose.

 The second game was The Lakers vs The Utah Jazz.  

The Lakes right before the game.

Its half time baby!
In the most recent NBA finals I was passionately going against the Lakers. Now that I live in L.A. I don't plan to start being a Laker fan. I'm also learning I'm going to have to be careful of what I say around some of these die hard Laker fans. I don't think they embrace non-Laker fans very well. As for Kobe Bryant: I'm also not a fan but that man is dangerous. He didn't really play much in the first half but he was on fire in the 3rd quarter. Again, I'm not a fan but you can't hate on that man's talents. For your viewing pleasure, I captured some of the Laker game for you to enjoy.

Unfortunately, the record button cut off during the exciting Laker intro. Sorry about that. Most of what I recorded was Kobe hitting his shots, but I was honestly trying to record him missing.

A special thanks to Angelica and Pernell for bringing me along. I'm hoping to connect with Pernell in the future and play some real basketball. He plays ball often and is a part of a few leagues. I was playing ball every day in Tampa until I arrived in L.A. I need to bring basketball back in my life.

The Lakers were actually losing in the beginning but they were winning by 4 points when we left in the 4th quarter. We left a little early.

Very soon I'll be evaluating my first 30 days in L.A. That is going to be a very important post. Be on the lookout.
 
As the quest continues...
