Pinhedz greatest moments in sports

Post  pinhedz on Thu Mar 12, 2015 1:33 pm

Greatest moments, which can never be surpassed:

-- I saw the Minneapolis Lakers play (it was the sport where they throw the round ball through the basket with no bottom scratch ) and afterwards, everybody told me that OUR TEAM WON.

-- In the other sport, I saw Harmon Killebrew hit a HOME RUN. cheers

I know those memories can never be topped; so I've avoided sports events ever since, because I don't want to be disappointed. geek

I just want to say--THERE ARE NO LAKES ON LOS ANGELES. Mad

California is not the land of 10,000 lakes; it is the land of 10,000 deserts.

"The franchise began with the 1947 purchase of a disbanded team, the Detroit Gems of the NBL. The new team began playing in Minneapolis, Minnesota, calling themselves the Minneapolis Lakers in honor of the state's nickname, "Land of 10,000 Lakes". Initially a member of the National Basketball League, the Lakers won the 1948 NBL championship before joining the rival Basketball Association of America and winning five of the next six BAA and NBA championships in Minneapolis after the NBA formed in 1949. The team was propelled by center George Mikan, who is described by the NBA's official website as the league's "first superstar". After struggling financially in the late 1950s following Mikan's retirement, they relocated to Los Angeles before the 1960–61 season."

Mr. Basketball, 6 ft 10 in, the first star of the NBA.

I was there, Yakima was NOT THERE.  Yakima does not know sport--the pinhead knows sport.

Fun fact -- Mikan was a croat (sometimes spelled Hrvat, or Horvath, if it's your surname).

There are two options when relocating ( with a region specificity factor of 9 or more)- change your name, like the Houston Oilers did when they left Texas, or keep the name and be absurd, see: the Utah Jazz
