Hello from L.A.

Yes, that’s the view from my hotel.

Yes, it’s 80 degrees with a nice breeze.

Yes, you’re jealous.

So, um, that’s the end of my L.A. bragging.

As for this series, the Lakers won a very ugly Game 3, which means we’re going at least five. Obviously, my prediction of Lakers in 5 is out the window, as is, probably, Lakers in 6. If the Lakers win this series, it’s gonna be because Kobe has a LeBron-esque performance in Game 7, and L.A. gets better performances from its supporting cast than Cleveland got from the LeBron Watchers they call a team.

OK, that’s it for now. I’m gonna keep enjoying L.A. Oh, and stop sending me food suggestions. I’m on a freakin’ diet and I can’t possibly go to all these places. I have to have some In N Out Burger while I’m out here, but that’s probably about it.
