Why Would you Want to be a Referee?

1.) Seriously, who ARE these people?  Why in the world would anyone ever want to be a referee?  I can’t think of a more thankless job.

During these NBA Finals, all I’ve heard is “These refs are calling too many fouls!  Just let them play!”  OK, fair argument. They are calling a ton of fouls.  But then last night, when Kevin Durant goes up for a shot with a chance to tie the game, he gets “fouled” by Lebron, the referee doesn’t call the foul, instead he let’s them play…which is what everyone has been calling for…and now everyone is screaming “Why didn’t they make that call!”  “That was a foul!”

Oh my goodness, make up your minds. I think it’s only a big deal because the non-call (which was really, very close and could’ve gone either way) was with Lebron making the play.

2.) By the way, in case you haven’t been paying attention, the Heat are going to win this NBA Finals. Everybody just better get used to Lebron getting his first championship because they completely fluster the Thunder. Their defense disrupts the Thunder’s offense and last night, the Thunder looked like annoyed little children while the Heat looked like the grown ups. Go figure.

But yeah, official prediction is Heat in 6.

3.) And allow me to offer this retort to Randy’s whole “Lebron is going back to Cleveland and everyone will love him for it.” First of all, he is not going back to Cleveland. Second of all, people will hate him regardless. I know I will. It is just a lot of fun rooting against Lebron.

I’ve read a lot of stuff on-line recently with people saying stuff to the effect of “I don’t understand why people hate Lebron James. He is a good guy!” So, as one of the haters, it got me thinking, why do I not like Lebron James?  I think it mostly comes down to the fact that he seems like a jerk. His mom bought him a hummer when he was 18, and he calls himself “King” James, which is pretty pretentious. Think about this, if you knew someone who at age 18 drove a hummer and called himself “King” whatever, you would not like that person, even if he threw down thunderous dunks.

Is he a great basketball player? Sure. But I can never root for him. He just seems like an entitled prick.

4.) Moving on, Beach House’s new album “Bloom” is pretty great. But just be careful where you listen to it, cause that thing will put you to sleep in a nanosecond!

5.) Talking soccer real quick, Euro 2012 is incredible to watch. My pick to win it all is…CROATIA! You heard it hear first!

That’s it for me. Enjoy your Friday everyone!

  • Dwayne Wade is a sinking star. The Heat will live and die with his performance, regardless of how well Lebron does. GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN BRON-BRON!!
