Live from L.A.!

Well, I’m here at STAPLES Center for the 2009 NBA Finals, and I’d still rather be in Cleveland.

Not that L.A. is bad -- I really like this city and almost moved here earlier this year -- but I’m still bitter about the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals.

Also, as a LeBron fan, all this talk about his non-handshake at the end of the series has been absurd. Look, he was pissed. Get over it. There’s nothing more to it.

As for L.A., I’ve gotten lots of great suggestions on places to go from a bunch of people, but I’m pretty much here for work, and I know what I want to do when I’m not working. That said, thanks to recommendations from a couple people, I will check out The Pantry, near the STAPLES Center. I meant to go when I was out here for the Finals last year, but the lines were always so long. This year, I’ll make the time to get there.

Oh, and eventually I’ll have plenty of pictures for you, but I’m probably not going to post them until the series is over.
