Happy Saturday everyone!

Hope it’s been a good day for everyone and you were as productive/lazy/shit-all drunk as you hoped to be.

I know this is a loung weekend for our Canadian friends which also explains why I am filling in for your regular host Absinthe-Fellow-Rigoberto.

Does anyone know why Canada is having their long weekend?

Really, this isn’t a conversation starter, it’s a “I have no fucking idea” question.

There are some sports scheduled for this evening, mainly baseball.

Full schedule.

That’s not the buzz around the sports world today though.

Oh no.

NBA free agency begins tonight at 09:01 PM PST.

As a Los Angeles resident I am surrounded, and I mean that in a literal as well as figurative sense, by this madness. Los Angeles isn’t a Rams town – but they have their fans. It can be a Dodger town when the team is performing well as they have for the past several seasons.

Uh-uh. LA is a fucking LAKERS town.

Here’s a snippet of an actual conversation on LA talk radio. “Dude! The Lakers are gonna land LeBron, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George AND DeAndre Jordan! The new dynasty starts this weekend!”

I swear to God! This was an actual conversation. Not to mention that this line-up wouldn’t even fucking work.

The Lakers fans refuse to accept reality. They refuse! This fan base CAN NOT handle not winning. Then you add on several years of not winning? These motherfuckers get CRAZED!

I won’t be able to go anywhere without overhearing this insanity over the course of this weekend.

Keep your eyes on whatever sports news source you prefer, the Twitter or the Internet or the Woj and watch the madness unfurl in real time.

As a Bulls fan I truly hope the Bulls just stay the fuck away from free agency. They are in the middle of a multi-year rebuild and the last thing they need to do is trade away young drafted talent and get to the “We have to win NOW” panic dance.

Fuck that.

So crack open a beer, pop a cork on a bottle of vino, pour yourself a tasty mixed drink or pound some shots.

Just be sure to tell us all about it in the comments.

AWAY WE GO!
