A very wise Buddhist instructor once wrote: "The greatest disease of the western world is anxiety about the future. When you are washing dishes, think about those dishes, and not about some thing you have to do in three days." Live in the moment. All the speculation and innuendo and reading of the chicken bones has got me flummoxed. We've just turned the calender into 2011, and we're already discussing the summer of 2012?!
As I was reading a recent column about Dwight Howard POSSIBLY leaving the Magic, by Brian Schmitz from the Orlando Sentinel http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/sports_magic/2011/01/magic-have-angst-about-dwight-howards-future.html, I tried to think if the same thing happened in the 80's or 90's.
I realize a house on fire is a better news story than the other 99,999 that are not, but sometimes it's all a bit too much.
If we win a championship this year or the next (or come very close), and Dwight realizes the best chance for him is here, he will stay. If we don't maybe he won't. I cheered for the "Cat Man", and Sydney Green, Jon Koncak and whoever. Would I like to see a championship-of course. But we should be worrying about Boston on Monday, and not free agency in 2012.
Of all the things that a beat writer could write about (Jameer-Gil, Bass-Ryno, etc), why does he choose this subject now?
