And Florida weeps

A few years ago I found myself at a Miami Heat game because my nephew was on the coaching staff of the visiting team. I never let that nephew know, but throughout the game, my eyes were riveted on James, and on the astonishing and quite beautiful thing that is LeBron playing basketball.

I became a fan, watched the games and – in the most innocent hero-worship kind of way – developed a school girl crush on the guy. Unrequited apparently.

So LeBron’s off to Cleveland. . . . LeBron who?

We seem to be birthin’ an entirely new species! Witness the two year olds . . .

The NBA draft is in full swing . . . do they know about this kid?

His name is Titus. He is two years old. And this is real. (He showed up on Fox & Friends and it was going great ’till Brian KilmeadeĀ (the one whose name no one can remember) tried to get in the act and basically lobbed the ball into little Titus’ face. Show over. The little guy burst into loud tears and Dad carried him off the set trying to make things right by saying “Brian didn’t mean it”. What he should have said was “Brian is just a doofus.”
