Ah yes, tis the day to buy stuff. Anyone ever wonder why today is called Black Friday? Well my fave website wikipedia came up with this...
The term "Black Friday" originated in Philadelphia in reference to the heavy traffic on that day. (see 'Origin of the name' below) More recently, merchants and the media have used it instead to refer to the beginning of the period in which retailers are in the black (i.e., turning a profit).
I've been looking for deals all day and I have come up with some really good ones including my brand new Canon Powershot 770 IS off Amazon. Tis a nice find if I do say so myself.
But the one thing I have yet to find on this Black Friday is a deal with this guy
and this guy
and THIS guy
for a combined salary of $10 mil a year for 5 years after 2010 when they all become free agents. What gives?
And ya know what REALLY grinds my gears....
Oh well, we gotta play the Cavs for now I guess..
The Cavs are on FIIIIIIIREEEE. 11 victories in 12 games? Shooting 60.8 percent? And LeBron chillin on the bench for the majority of the last few games?
While the Cavs are playing their best ball in the last few years, the Dubs are...doing the exact opposite. I commend the effort against the Celtics on Wednesday night, BUT letting a 14 point deficient go doesn't really make me too happy.
But this isn't about me, an average Joe fan, its about the owners and making money.
R Dizzle's Predictions
- We gonna lose.
- We gonna lose by a lot.
- I hate LeBron James for his 30 points and 13 boards. Oh ya, did I mention that I hate him even more for being a month younger than me.
- I cross out the King James logo on my new shoes and write in "R Dizzle" and GSoM all over - look for my shoes to top out Chad Ocho Cinco cleats with pics of him making TDs.
- I get to see more of my boy Rob Kurz.
