First off, I need to get my thoughts out on the whole LeBron situation even though most probably don't care or are done with it. First, why did he feel the need to be on TV to announce it? Well, here is what I said to someone on Facebook about it. Every NBA fan wanted to know where he would go as he is the best of second best player in the league and could choose wherever he wanted to go. People were on pins and needles. He decided to have charity benefit a little from it and got ESPN to donate all ad revenue from the show to charity. So.....he could simply announce it on Twitter, or by phone call, or email or something private like that and make NO money for charity or he could do the TV special, announce what people want to know anyways, and help make money for charity in the process and add a little good to the whole ridiculous situation. Sounds like a no brainer to me.
And what about the fact that he is now leaving Cleveland, the town where he played and also grew up? Is he a traitor? NO. Absolutely not. Sports are about first and foremost, WINNING. He didn't feel his best chance of winning was in Cleveland. He wanted to win, pure and simple. So, that left his decision up to Chicago or Miami. And he chose Miami. Why? Two of his best friends, Wade and Bosh were going to play there too. And in case you haven't played sports before, it is FUN to play with your friends. He could have gotten more money had he chosen to stay in Cleveland or perhaps chosen a city like New York. But he chose friends and winning over money. I don't think there is anything wrong with that when it comes to sports. The whole thing was crazy, but LeBron, I commend you.
With that out of the way, I did my first themed picture project today. I chose to do the theme of "measurement" since there are so many picture opportunities in the house. It was a ton of fun! Here are two of the sixteen I took.
