And now, for some jaylowe observations:
Does anyone really believe Kobe? Typically, I would side with the guy in this situation. Let's think about it ... he has money, fame and everything to lose. Why would he out himself in this situation? Now I said that is NORMALLY how I would feel. In this case, I do not. Watching his press conference last week made me sick. I saw no remorse. I saw a script. Hell, I've seen better acting on Monday Night Raw. Hey, I could end up being totally wrong, and for his sake I hope I am. But I just didn't see too many signs of forgiveness. And his wife? She's an idiot.
Does it piss you off when you are looking up something in the phone book and it reads, "please see another section." I mean, in the space they take up to type that, they could just put in the damn number. For instance, I'm flipping through the NIU phone book today looking for the number to Document Services. So what do I look under? Yes kids, that's right ... DOCUMENT SERVICES. But there's that little note, "please see information technology." WHAT? So I flip to the IT section, and of course there is the number. But WHY not just list it under Document Services? Is this too much to ask? Without stepping on Marc's toes, it is time for Ken Griffey, Jr, to hang it up. Every time I pop open espn.com, there is a story about this guy being hurt. Wasn't he supposed to be the next Hank Aaron? Obviously not. Sorry grif, but go ahead and retire. Or go play for Tampa Bay. That's close enough.
I think I've started to grow out of my wrestling phase. I know, I know. Most people grow out of it when they are 12, or at least 15. Not me. I've enjoyed it for years. It's always been a distraction from every day life. It's a great way to cheer for the "bad guy." But watching it this past Monday night just made me realize how awful it's gotten. Sure, some of the classics wrestlers are still there. It's just not the same. Flair can still talk with the best of 'em. HHH is always gonna be my favorite. The Rock, when he's not playing around in Hollywood, is the best in the business today. However, the entire product is lacking something. I wish I knew the answers.
Don't you hate it when wonderful people, hurt? I have this friend ... she's amazing. I don't give her enough credit, because we give each other so much hell ... but she is an amazing person. She's the type of person that when you are around them, YOU want to be a better person. So she has this pain that won't go away. It has to deal with that silly thing called the heart. If there were anything I could do to lessen that blow, I would. She deserves better. She deserves the best. She may not believe it now ... I probably wouldn't either ... but good things happen to good people. And she's a great one.
That's it kids. Another installment of The Lowe Down is complete. I won't be back on until August 3rd. I head home for a little over a week tomorrow morning. I simply cannot wait. So for all of you in Winston, see you soon. To my DeKalb friends ... keep my seat at Fatty's warm!
ps - Don't forget about the ARGUS show September 6, at Fatty's here in DeKalb, IL.
