Re: F**K the Lakers

In 2006 I was a breaks bartender at Wynn Las Vegas, meaning I went from bar to bar giving other bartenders their hour break. One of my stops was a service bar, tucked away from the casino floor, where the waitresses got their cocktails. The person I had to break there, Greg, was a huge Lakers fan. When Kobe hit that OT buzzer beater to make it 3-1 Lakers I came into his bar the next day to find a little water bottle on the counter sporting a Kobe jersey koozie. Greg picked up the bottle and proceeded to plunk the insides of the sleeves with his thumbs like Kobe did when he was strutting...
So when Phoenix came back and won the series I made 20 stickers of this image of me in my 2006 play-off shirt and stuck them all over his backpack while he was out having his lunch break. He took it like a champ but the kicker was that he apparently failed to remove them all. One finally fell onto the floor on the passenger side of his truck where he kept his backpack. So when his girlfriend got in she looked down, wondered what that baseball card was, and on closer inspection was faced with my smug one finger salute.

F**K the Lakers!!!

Nice!

I lived in Los Angeles during that time and my neighbor in the next apartment was a huge Lakers fan. He got real cocky at 3/1 Lakers. When the Suns pulled off the victory I made a sign “Suns Win!” And taped it to his door. I could here him walking up the stairs to his apartment and then the big “Fuck You!” he let out when he read the sign. That made me feel so warm and fuzzy on the inside.

This thread has been cathartic and I love it in all languages.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

I loved that '06 team and that Lakers/Suns series. I would have posted the Raja clothesline GIF here in this thread, but I decided it might be in poor taste given the eventual fate of the clothesline recipient.

Our boy is growing up! :D I remember the Frank Johnson dildo days like it was yesterday. Well, getting married and having three kids will do that to you.

Ayton just did the same thing drummond waa doing on the bench. Good shit
“Kobe had said (after the play) I wasn’t hugged enough as a child,” Bell recalled. “My mom kind of found him after the instance and we had beat them and offered him a hug in the bowels of the Phoenix arena. She really feels a part of that story.”

Oh nah lol
You left out the relevant part of my post. It was that every culture probably think the same way that the other language sounds hard to learn
