Kobe's Christmas Grinch Shoes are gross

It won't be the first time people alledge that Kobe Bryant has a heart two sizes too small, but it's the first time he'll look the part. Leaked yesterday were Kobe Bryant's "Grinch edition" shoes which he'll be wearing on Christmas Day against the visiting Miami Heat. They are ... ahem ... Grinch-like:




So that would make LeBron little Cindy Lou Who, that's who.

Can we go ahead and get this out of the way? The Lakers are going to kill the Heat on Christmas. Even if the Heat get it together over the next month, there's simply no way they'll be able to deal with the Lakers' size, cohesiveness and overall talent. The Heat's Big 3 are better than the Lakers' Big 3 (as in, take Kobe, Pau, and any of their other five solid star players), but they also haven't learned to play together and the Lakers' Big 2 seem to be a might bit better.

Stealing this win for LA, in LA, is going to be easier than taking candy from ... you know what? Nevermind.

What does it mean to relax? Despite hearing this term thousands of times during the course of our lives, very few people have deeply considered what it's really about.It is useful to think of relaxation as a quality of heart that you can access on a regular basis rather than something reserved for some later time. You can relax now. It's helpful to remember that relaxed people can still be superachievers and, in fact, that relaxation and creativity go hand in hand5. When I'm feeling upright, for example, I don't even try to write. But when I feel relaxed, my writing flows quickly and easily.When you ask people (which I have done many times) what it means to relax, most will answer in a way that suggests that relaxing is something you plan to do later you do it on vacation, in a hammock1, when you retire, or when you get everything done. This implies, of course, that most other times (the other 95 percent of your life) should be spent nervous, agitated2, rushed, and frenzied3. Very few actually come out and say no, but this is the obvious implication. Could this explain why so many of us operate as if life were one great big emergency? Most of us postpone relaxation until our “in basket4” is empty. Of course it never is.It is useful to think of relaxation as a quality of heart that you can access on a regular basis rather than something reserved for some later time. You can relax now. It's helpful to remember that relaxed people can still be superachievers and, in fact, that relaxation and creativity go hand in hand5. When I'm feeling upright, for example, I don't even try to write. But when I feel relaxed, my writing flows quickly and easily.Being more relaxed involves training yourself to respond differently to the dramas of life turning your melodrama6 into a mellow drama7. It comes, in part, from reminding yourself over and over again (with loving kindness and patience) that you have a choice in how you respond to life. You can learn to relate to8 your thinking as well as your circumstances in new ways. With practice, making these choices will translate into a more relaxed.I don't know all these passages yet. Tu-whoo! said the Owl. We're not going through the castle. That would never do. You must ride on me. We shall fly. Oh! said Jill, and stood with her mouth open, not much liking the idea. Shan't I be too heavy for you? Tu-whoo, tu-whoo! Don't you be a fool. I've already carried the other one. Now. But we'll put out that lamp first. hyd

Spain's foreign minister on Sunday called on European and other global leaders to enact concrete sanctions against Argentina in a bid to prod the country to fully compensate Spanish oil firm Repsol YPF SA for the expropriation of its Argentine unit.Speaking ahead of a meeting in Luxembourg on Monday with other European Union foreign ministers, Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo said in an interview that Spain would push the region to impose sanctions on the Latin American country that include removing its preferential trade treatment. The EU is Argentina's second-largest export market after the South American trading block Mercosur.Mr. Garcia-Margallo also said Spain would seek help from multilateral organizations such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization to pressure Argentina to rejoin negotiations with Repsol, Spain's largest oil company, over proper compensation for forcefully taking control of YPF SA, Argentina's leading oil-and-gas company.Mr. Garcia-Margallo's comments come as Spain strives to marshal international pressure against Argentina after the former colony, under President Cristina Kirchner, issued plans last week to expropriate 51% of YPF, leaving Repsol with a 6.4% stake.Argentina insists it has the right to exert sovereign control over its energy resources, but Spain and other leaders have said the move is illegal and demanded that Argentina provide proper compensation for the takeover. Argentine government officials didn't immediately respond to calls seeking comment. Ms. Kirchner has previously insisted she won't back down to Spanish pressure and is acting to ensure Argentina's energy supply. Opinion polls indicate most Argentines support the nationalization of YPF.While declining to provide specific details, Mr. Garcia-Margallo said additional unilateral reprisals would follow Spain's decision on Friday to effectively restrict imports of Argentine biodiesel, valued at about 750 million euros ($990 million) in 2011, according to Spain's Renewable Energy Producers Association.In the meantime, he said, Spain would continue to try to bring Argentina back to the negotiating table with Repsol.Spain unsuccessfully sought a negotiated solution well before the Argentine government's move, he added. zby

Love the shoes! This game will probably have one of the highest ratings ever for a regular season game.
