Where Are the Announcers?

'Where is Ralph Lawler and Michael Smith?' I asked myself as I tuned into view the Clippers vs. the Denver Nuggets this past Friday.

No Lawler's Law??



Well...If I had been tuned into garbage time the previous game, I would've known.
Mind you, it was a Grizzlies v. Clippers game, but nonetheless, I would've known.

Ralph, the 71 year old legendary announcer, along with his sidekick Michael were...suspended for the game versus the Nuggets!!!

Why you may ask??

Well, there are many things you don't want to say on television.

They said a few.

Their convo to follow.

Smith: "Look who's in."

Lawler: "Hamed Haddadi. Where's he from?"

Smith: "He's the first Iranian to play in the NBA." (Smith pronounced Iranian as "Eye-ranian," a pronunciation that offended the viewer who complained.)

Lawler: "There aren't any Iranian players in the NBA," repeating Smith's mispronunciation.

Smith: "He's the only one."

Lawler: "He's from Iran?"

Smith: "I guess so."

Lawler: "That Iran?"

Smith: "Yes."

Lawler: "The real Iran?"

Smith: "Yes."

Lawler: "Wow. Haddadi that's H-A-D-D-A-D-I."

Smith: "You're sure it's not Borat's older brother?"

Smith: "If they ever make a movie about Haddadi, I'm going to get Sacha Baron Cohen to play the part."

Lawler: "Here's Haddadi. Nice little back-door pass. I guess those Iranians can pass the ball."

Smith: "Especially the post players.

Lawler: "I don't know about their guards."

I do know 'their guards' carry rifles Ralph.

Emotions of the Night

some did laugh...

the occasional frown...

some were surprised...

all in all
we sit back and pray
that whatever emotion we may feel

i mean
moves us to look
like this...

I Forgot to Mention...


Are You Hungry??

I am the furthest thing from a supporter of McDonalds
In fact, as of August 12, 2009 2:42pm I have officially boycotted them

No, I'm not out with banners and signs in front of the golden arches
Neither am I searching for ways to destroy all McDonalds in one quick strike

However, I DO badmouth them every single chance I get
I DO encourage those around me to choose alternate eating locations
I DO not donate to the Ronald McDonald Help A Child Foundation
I'm sorry

Being the speaker of neigh that I am
You would think I went to great lengths to search this video out
However, I did not
This one was passed down to me from the original Orijanel

Quote of the Day

i WISH i knew this man
i purposefully am lower casing my i's when i refer to myself
because i am not worthy to be an I
in the presence
of Mr. James Allen
who once said

"A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself; that he cannot coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his own will: and things serve him who serves Truth; people seek guidance of him who is master of himself."

read 'As A Man Thinketh' to get fully involved

he suggests you should as well
VWould a man with hair like this steer you wrong??
i think not
So now it is 'As A Orijanel Thinketh' eh?

I Want to Blog All Over You

Good Afternoon Readers/Bloggers/Loch Ness Monsters

I hope this blog finds you well, healthy, and well rested.

I hope I find you happily stirring in your personal space.

My weekend was one of happiness over ice, with a brim of sugar and a lime wedge.

Family, friends, and Jack Shrimp with a hint of Arthurs Okie breakfast is all a 9,498 day old guy can ask for.

Top it off with a outing to Red Robin and my gut and my heart have burst (nearly literally, quite figuratively)

In the midst of my gluttony, I thought of hiding my face.

And then, I thought better of it.

Peeking out and welcoming you to the Orijanel Journal

Heavy focus on music, arts, writing, family, friends, and most notably....YouTube videos you careless to watch!

Thank you for taking time from your day to rant, rave, read, and relax with me.
