derek fisher is the man!
yes, i dig other kinds of fish too. but we aren't talking about that right now.
i am STILL on a high after thursday's awesome win after that nailbitin' five minutes of overtime. i hooted and hollered, and when d-fish sank that incredible shot, the bean joined in my cheering and carrying on. it was funny. i'd shout, and she'd clap her hands and let out a roar of her own.
just look at this smile!
that smile would melt any laker-lovin' heart. he's just too adorable.
you know i proudly rock my OG #8 kobe jersey, especially during the finals. and yes, i am a kobe fan, despite the many reasons why others aren't. but right on his heels, competing for #1 in my basketball affections, is my dear derek. i've been a huge d-fish fan ever since that amazing 0.4 shot a few years ago, and actually, even before that. i was sad when he left to play for golden state (um, who??), and then i was totally stoked to see him back on my beloved laker team. i'd read that it was sparked by a need to return to l.a. for medical care for his daughter, which of course touched my heart. i'm a sucker for sick children.
i just want to rub his shiny bald head and give him a big ol' hug. that's cool, right?
now, on to game 5! will we take it, or will we lose this game and win it at home? i like the latter idea, but i HATE watching us lose. such a conundrum.
