The Backyard: Holy Hoops!

Where the deer play.

The whole idea of spending $2 million dollars for a “Lakers Parade” at a time when both the city of Los Angeles and the state of California are in such economic turmoil could not be any more ridiculous than Kobe’s wife forgiving him for playing a rousing game of one-on-one, Colorado style.

At a time of double-digit unemployment and a housing market that is coming back as well as the “Magic” in the final game, it makes about as much sense as newspapers producing a special “Lakers” section without advertising?

Hey Casey and Laura, how about putting some of grandpa Wasserman’s movie money to some real good?

Personally, I like the idea of playing some half-court on a grass court over the septic tank.  It’s even more challenging when you don’t know where the pump outlet is or the deer droppings.

A court where you can really go foul.
