Wow. What a bummer. RIP.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I was fortunate to have a "job" that saw me awake for West Coast B-Ball games throughout the Lakers last championship era. Was glued to the television during some of those magical playoff runs.

It's kind of a surreal thing. RIP to a man who we all pretended to be just shooting around. To us 20 something's he was our Jordan.

Yeah it’s pretty tragic.   I used to not really like him, mainly because I had 3 friends who were die hard laker fans and I just wanted to give them shit.   Saw him play a few times in Memphis and Denver.   Definitely on the mt. Rushmore of basketball.

I will still yell “Kobe” when I hit that perfect grenade throw in call of duty.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

A true legend. Def the Jordan of our era. They did a nice tribute at the nuggets game today for him. RIP

His 13-year-old daughter was in the chopper with him. Heartbreaking.

Went to the Blazer game last night and they had some nice tributes.  And Dame went for 50, which I'd like to think in part, was inspired by Kobe's passing.

Just popping in to say that canceling the Mr. Peanut campaign, which was already stupid, over Kobe Bryant's death, is also stupid.

I forget what I was watching but the comment about our generation keeping this going... so good.
honest to the point of recklessness...
