Boston, Bodies, and Barack Obama

June 18, 2008

There’s been some interesting “B” words in the news as of late. Boston, as in the Boston Celtics… Bodies, like the one in the Bodies Exhibition going on at Ala Moana… and Barack Obama, because, well, he’s always in the news and frankly, I needed a 3rd “B” sounding word to round out my catchy title. 😛 (Note: I was this close to using “Babalu” Sobral instead of Barack, but didn’t think his name had quite the same star power. *grin*)

And since you obviously read this blog to catch up with all of the quality, cutting edge reports going on in the world, I didn’t want to let you down. I’m here to deliver. Word.

So hurr we go son!

Boston
Yesterday afternoon, the Boston Celtics handed Kobe and crew a 131-92 beating to take the 2007-2008 NBA Championships. I was happy to see vets Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett not only bring one back to Beantown for the 17th time, but also validate themselves as players with their very first title. Congrats Celts!

Bodies… The Exhibition
On Saturday, a controversial exhibit that put human cadavers on display opened at Ala Moana Center. Controversy came when it was reported that they may be the remains of executed Chinese prisoners. Regardless whether they were or not, the exhibition has been cleared to start and will be on display through January 18th of next year. Admission is around $26.

Barack Obama
In a recent CNN poll, Barack Obama is shown leading John McCain 47%-43% (presumptive nominees). Awwwwright!

Renato “Babalu” Sobral

Recently signed with Affliction MMA, he will be fighting on their “Affliction: Banned” Pay-Per-View Card on July 19 against Mike Whitehead. The same stacked (and I mean STACKED) card that will feature Fedor vs. Sylvia, Barnett vs. Rizzo, Rothwell vs. Arlovski and Lindland vs. Negao.

Talk to me!
* Happy with Boston’s victory?
* Are you interested in checking out the Bodies exhibition?
* Barack or McCain?
* Excited for the Affliction: Banned event?
