Guest blogger achieves orbit

I've spent enough time working with ESL students to understand why this isn't actually funny, i.e. exactly how little of a clue this person has as to what he/she is saying and how it will be perceived. But sometimes magic happens in the strangest places, so, without further adieu, here is a brief guest entry from a college student struggling to master the English language and make the world think a little, to boot.

Since the Union won the Civil, African Americans were freed from slavery and able to make contributions in many aspects of sports and music. African Americans such as Michael Jordan changed the world of sports. If the Union had lost the Civil War, basketball would not be as exciting as it is nowadays. Many amazing moves or records would have never been invented or made. Talents would be lost if slavery still existed today. Jazz was first invented by the African Americans who sang their mood. If African Americans had never been freed from slavery jazz would not exist today. Also, the basketball team, the Utah Jazz, may not exist today because the word jazz would probably not exist if slavery still existed. Freedom of slaves was what led to the many accomplishments of African Americans.

So are you really not watching the Finals?

i've watched most of the first two games, but i think b. shoals is officially not watching. game 2 was a pretty boring affair, even with all the scoring. right now it's all about preparing for the draft, as you'll soon see.

What kind of an NBA fan doesn't watch the Finals? Don't you know this is WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN?

I know, you wouldn't watch every episode of 24 then skip the finale.

i did skip the finale of 24 after watching every episode, though it was somewhat beyond my control. did i already say something about that?

I told you guys Detroit and San Antonio was going to suck. Watching "Shaquille" is far more entertaining.

No, you didn't mention it. That example was just on point.

They stopped the missile by the way.

and Darko even had enough time the other night to airball a 4 foot baby hook. actually, i went to Game 1 and couldn't help myself from yelling "free darko" when he was announced in the beginning of the Finals intros.

thanks for the shout out (literally), brick!

that rookies show is the shit. i loved seeing jr smith driving around in the rental car and shopping at men's wearhouse. a clearly hungover okafor was also pretty hilarious.
