Life List Additions

I wrote this post in January. It is the beginning of my life list rules. Since then I've added a few more.
  • If someone offers you a breath mint, you should probably accept it.
  • Sixty year old arms are not long enough for selfies. 
The last discovery came in a photography class where I was to take a selfie. Close ups capture a lot of bad stuff. So I cheated and used my tripod. Well who defined selfie as hand held. It allowed me to capture more than my teeth, in this case, my bike too.

I scrapped the effort.

Buzzer Beating - Game Winning - Series Clinching"

Excerpts from Media Row reports on the win of the century for the TrailBlazers...

"The Basketball Gods looked out for us," Wes Matthews said. "I don't know if they blew the coverage or what."

"We got as good of a look as we were going to get," Lillard said.

There was no panic. He didn't waste any time, but he didn't race either. The catch became the turn and the turn became the square up and the square up became the release and the release became the flick follow-through.

"His demeanor was never that of a rookie," Matthews said. "His age, he always played with a swagger or an edge. It speaks for itself."

Watch Damian Lillards buzzer beater here.
Go boys!

In the end the entire team, bench included, had a role to play and played it well. Damian's shot sealed the deal.
