If You Want to be Happy, Then LEARN to be Happy

Earlier today, I read about a guy named Wong Sun, someone who is happy whether there is rain or whether it is Monday morning…  And, he is in the shoe repair profession.

Mr. Wong Sun, the happy shoe repairsman

I think, really, that happiness is not where you travel, what you do, or what you have, but rather is about finding the inner peace within.

I think just being able to do a good job at whatever it is that you or I are/am doing and to feel satisfaction from doing so goes a long way towards that inner peace.

So, here is to Mr. Wong Sun!  May we all have that inner peace and joy!

Best Basketball Comment Ever!

I ran across this comment while reading the news about the Allen Iverson going to Memphis Grizzlies.  It was posted by numba333.  I guess this answers any questions whether AI will fit into the Memphis Grizzlies system and whether this revives his career, etc.  hehe

Without further due, here is the comment:

Mayo dribbles up the court, looking for his shot…..STOLEN by Allen Iverson. What the heck? Mayo is guarding AI. Iverson looking for his shot. Can’t get it off. Randolph screaming for the ball. STRIPPED by Gay!!!! Gay goes up for the shot. BLOCKED by Randolph. Randolph for layup, misses, rebound, misses, rebound, misses, rebound, misses, rebound….Mayo leaps takes the ball away, dribbles it out, doubleteamed by Gay and AI. Nets just standing around watching in disbelief.

Marc Gasol is drinking a Gatorade…..this is embarassing……

Top Seven Reasons to LOVE the Denver Nuggets Right Now

7. The Emergence of J.R. Smith

After a loss at the hands of JR Smith’s hot shooting and the Denver Nuggets, Deron Williams of Utah Jazz said it best, “Once he gets going offensively, he is one of the best players in the league.  He has unlimited range.”  In that game, JR Smith torched anyone trying to guard him.  On one play, he had a sweet turnaround and a three-point shot with taller Kyle Korver trying to guard him.  There was not a chance Korver could do anything but watch him hit the three right on him.  Watching JR Smith gets on a hot streak, it is a blast watching him make it rain or dunk on a fast break.

Just right now, 9pm in Mongolia on May 12th, 2009, while I was watching Bloomberg, I saw for the first time in my life, Bloomberg cover sports.  The reporter on Bloomberg Asia showed highlights of LeBron James and Cavs and talked about how the Cavs have swept the Hawks in the second round… and then went on to say that Game 5 is on later tonight.

LOL. WOW, maybe Bloomberg SHOULD just stick to finances… maybe they’ll make better predictions!

Did you watch the game?

I watched it on justin.tv.  ESPN and Star Sports were showing baseball and soccer, so this was the only place I could watch the game from Mongolia.  Every 3-4 sec the screen froze for a 1-2 sec, but it still was wonderful to watch the third Nuggets game and the first Nuggets playoff game in the last two years.  Just hearing the announcers and other people talk about the Nuggets was exciting.

Anyway, this game was just unbelievable.  I mean, I was just completely at loss for words.  WOW.  Continue reading Nuggets Just Destroyed the Hornets – Denver wins by 58!
