It's been a nice weekend,got another W last Thursday and I have been in good shape lately.Always a good way to enjoy the weekend,sitting at home and smiling at a job well done. As time goes by I'm always reminded that basketball is just like life,you can find yourself at the bottom real fast,which just means we need to take it a day at a time,or in my case,each game is a whole new beginning.
The truth is that when I began writing this blog I wasn't sure how I'm going to feel about everything,but I really am happy I did. Besides letting some stem out I also found a new world ,the world of the blogger.
I have had the chance to follow Mikey the hockey kid blog,and can only say I'm really impressed with the way he shares his life and the courage he has at his age. I also read john's blog,the semi closet dude,and it's really interesting and really authentic,hats off to both of them.
I also appreciate the emails and the comments,i must say that even though i chose to put one side of my life on hold I'm still happy I'm this fortunate. Having the chance to be playing bball and making a living out of it,it's just pure joy. Not saying I wouldn't be a lot happier to also have a chance to meet guys and stare at hot guys on the street or just start a conversation,but i guess we can't have it all.
On another subject,A book i read some time ago came to my mind last night,The man in the middle,John Amaechi's book, Must say I read it in just a few short days,it's always good to hear of more gay athletes. Since reading the book I really lost any respect I had to some of the characters in the book and some that made comments following it. It's so appropriate that the book is sitting in my closet,so any friends coming to visit won't see it. Would be happy 2 hear of any interesting books that someone has read and he recommends.
I also saw the movie Latter Days,I tend to get a little emotional in those kinds of movies.Besides the really cute guys i felt the story was heartwarming and also was happy they had a happy ending. I think it just really brings up my feelings and my wishes and that's why it was easy for me to relate to it.
Saw some other gay movies,but none of them moved me to much,that putting "Milk" aside.
I think i will call it a day and go watch the last quarter of the Jets and Chargers,after the Vikings Killed the Cowboys it's nice to see a tight game
have a good one.....
