What is going on with the West Coast sports scene?
Two weeks ago we were talking about a WCBias.com-sponsored Freeway Series … but instead of L.A. vs. L.A. (of Anaheim, Orange County, Southern Cali., California, West Coast …), we’ve got New York vs. Philly?!
Wow. Who woulda thought there wouldn’t be any Left Coast love in this series?
Then the NBA season kicks off and the Clippers’ last remaining hope (top draft pick and Lambo idol, Blake Griffin) goes down with a busted kneecap before the season opener … and the curse continues. Sure, that was good for the Lakers, who collected their rings and beat up on the poor Clips in the season opener, but then they turn around and get smoked by Dirk and the Mavs?
I don’t know about you, but I blame the swine flu … excuse me, the H1N1, which apparently the East Coast is laughing about these days. Don’t believe me? Well, here’s a screenshot from the USA Today this morning (click the image to see it full screen). Apparently the Boston Celtics are getting a nice laugh out of our misery. Why do I feel like 2009-10 is going to turn out like the 2007-08 season … only we’ll get to watch the Cs win another title while the rest of us are in bed with the swine. PIGS! Hire some freaking copy editors USA Today!
