Laker girl profile: Bria's experience as a Sparks dancer prepared her to become a Laker girl

Bria Laker girl

This is the second post of a weekly series that helps you get to know the Laker Girls (who, by the way, officially go by one name only).

Laker Girl name: Bria

Years on squad: Five seasons

Hometown: Los Angeles

Resides in: Harbor City

College/high school: Graduated UC Irvine; St. Bernard High School in Playa del Rey

What prompted you to want to become a Laker Girl? I used to dance for the Los Angeles Sparks, as a SparKid when I was younger ... and looked forward to one day auditioning to become a Los Angeles Laker Girl. It seemed like the only, right next step up for me as a dancer.

At your audition, what do you think stood out about you to the judges? I feel that my positive energy showed through my performance. Also, I hope in my interview they could tell I was a team player.

What do you think makes a good Laker Girl? Definitely being a team player and a good role model for your teammates ... but, more importantly, for any Lakers fans and children that interact with us.

What is your dance experience? I started dancing when I was 7 years old. I am trained in ballet/pointe, modern, jazz, tap, hip-hop and other stylized genres (character, flamingo, etc.).

Favorite dance routine while a Laker Girl? There was a dance routine we did a couple years ago called “Ciara Mix” that was really fun to perform because it was fast and high energy -- like a lot of our routines!

Favorite uniform? My favorite uniform was one we called the “Mac 'n' Cheese” dress uniform. (We called it that because of the color.) Plus, it’s my favorite food! (ha ha)

Favorite Laker? Derek Fisher

Favorite Laker Girl memory so far? It would have to be walking down the stairs, while we entered the L.A. Coliseum for the 2008-09 NBA Championship Celebration! Not to mention performing in front of all those fans! It left me speechless, and it was an incredible experience.

What do you like most about being involved, as a Laker Girl, at local charity/community events? I love being able to meet the dedicated fans up close and personal. I especially enjoy meeting kids that we can impact and that look up to us for more than just our dancing. I guess I would say that I really feel appreciated by them all -- and that alone is priceless.

What would you say is your beauty secret? Being genuine and really caring about others -- that is beauty to me.

What diet/workout tips do you have? Take dance classes for exercise. It keeps you active in a fun way that you won’t become bored. You should try a zumba class, pilates or yoga.

What are your hobbies? Volleyball, swimming, running, and I enjoy doing hair and makeup.

Career aspirations? I would like to open an optimal performance training facility that offers rehabilitation and dance classes for athletes (especially dancers). I also plan on going to medical school.

Hi Bria...I went to St. Bernard Grammar School, in Glassel Park...so I feel a connection with you...lol

Great profile...I hope all your dreams and aspirations come true...

Thanks for cheering on our boys...

Random thought...

PJ got a lot of flak for his comments about the Cheat and the coaching situation...

After seeing the 'bump' by the Princess on his coach Eric Spoelstra...

Seems there is validity in PJ's comments...

As usual...PJ spot on at the end...

On the second thought, our underboss might just go hari-kiri if lakers are winning, Phred and Korey will be sitting side-be-side and blitz & hobbitmage will debate all night that will pale Lincoln-Douglas debate while our Godfahter LakerTom will be preaching the beast good tidings, no one can concentrate on the game. I think we're better of with our wide screen with an obedient dog on our lap, opening gifts, smelling the Christmas pines, sipping Kahlua & no worries on 911 alert! LOL

Posted by: Edwin Gueco | December 05, 2008 at 08:35 AM

I think with Ariza on Pierce, at the end of the game, &
Bynum in at Center, we can take the Celtics.

Go Lakers!

Posted by: hobbitmage | December 05, 2008 at 09:38 AM

3rd. I'm immensely grateful that PJ has talked about his
coaching. It's his job to coach them on how to play and
if they don't it's his job to put in others. If Bynum won't
box out, put in Mihm until he learns how. Maybe he
needs to tell the 2nd unit that there job is not to push the
pace, they're job is to not turn over the ball.

re: trading Lamar.

1st. I haven't seen an insightful description of what
the Lakers are actually missing.

2nd. I haven't seen that we can get what we need for
him.

My take on the whole thing: Our centers need to do a
better job on boxing out. Our 2nd unit needs to commit
less turnovers due to haste. Phil needs to do a slightly
better job on coaching. i.e. It's hard to clown him when
we go up by 10 - 20. It's hard not to clown him when
the 2nd unit blows the lead and he doesn't stop them.
Since he's actually mentioned his coaching, I'm going to
wait and see.

At this pt, I wouldn't say that we need better pg's. We
need our pg's to play better. We've had a 10 - 20 pt
lead in almost all of our games. They have to be doing
something right.

ps. Yes, I have noticed Kobe & Ariza gambling for steals.
Since Phil has already mentioned it, I'm going to wait and
see. Besides, how many points are we getting off of
steals?

pps. I wish Mike T were around so I could ask him why
Kwame is no longer in the rotation of Detroit. Big
Calves seem insufficient.

LakerTom - thank you so much for the kind words last thread. I really appreciate it coming from such a great writer as yourself. Much thanks!

MM - on the video you posted on LeBron bumping his coaches...

The one on Mike Brown did not look intentional...He was talking to someone and looking the other way...

The one on Eric Spoelstra looked on purpose...He was staring straight ahead, and did not make any effort to avoid contact...But it's what he did after the bump...look closely, and you will see his motion after the contact...He followed through with the impact and even gave it an extra push afterwards...like an exclamation, you see the passion and the 'intent' on the follow through...

Sorry LEWSTRS, I just noticed I spelled anniversary wrong on you & Cora's bandwagon my sincere apologies my brother!

Talking about defense...

A lot has been said about how Lakers were soft and how they lost finals...Look at this video..
http://tinyurl.com/5b2k4j
Celtics just got away rather they get away all the time. Garnett taunting smaller guards etc. Why league does not take action is beyond me. More has been said about Lakers improved defense and other teams are adjusting to that but no one talks about why Celtics are tough to play against. Why they get away with so much stuff they do on defense.
Mental toughness is lacking on this team. Blow for a blow, kick for a kick..nope does not happen here..too nice players..no one I see in this team besides Andrew and Kobe, who would like to confront ..no one..Gasol looks like he is going to cry when something like this happens..They need show their face..to Centers like Brad Miller...take technicals so be it..Boston is averaging most technicals in league..they do not stop showing their opponents how they talk and how physical game is..there are elements of game which are going to be physical..but Lakers just back off every time. I am tired of that. Unless we develop that mentality we are not going to beat Boston. No matter if we win 76 games. (2 lost and 2 more to Boston), we are not going to win finals without beating Boston down their throat.

Posted by: Ajay | December 09, 2008 at 04:06 PM

If the Lakers go 80-2, they will have home court advantage! lol!

Boston is trying very hard to match our pace right now because they know they need home court advantage. If the Lakers can get home court in the finals, I like their chances.

Bynum is still immature. But he is the key to them winning. He is not a finesse player like everyone says. He is strong, but sometimes I think he allows himself to be intimidated and this is what I think Mike T is saying.

Bynum is strong enough. He has emotion and passion but it's not consistent. I think he only lets himself get intimidated because of his youth.

He is a hell of a lot better then Gasol in this area and we did win 2 games in the finals without Bynum.

If Bynum can stay out of foul trouble and doesn't listen to garnett's taunts, I think we have a better chance then last year..

Another Haiku...

Kwame Brown’s game
And Mike Teniente’s brain
Both need a bail out.

Tom

Posted by: LakerTom | December 09, 2008 at 04:34 PM

Mike T,

I don't expect Bynum to be as strong as Perkins. I just don't want him to get intimidated. He needs to be aggressive and develop his moves in the post..I guarantee you perkins cannot block his new jump hook he has been doing lately. All Bynum needs to do is work himself more into the lane and not be intimidated. He's still immature.. I think he's still a year or 2 years away from being real good but he is definitely better then Pao when it comes to being a physical presence.

Everyone is fogetting he is only 21! Howard in Orlando is 23!

Bynum is easily a top 3 or 4 center in this league right now.

We did win 2 games in the finals with a marshmellow front line.

Now we are a little tougher and if we get home court advantage, we have a chance..

Posted by: zen | December 09, 2008 at 05:09 PM

zen,

"I don't expect Bynum to be as strong as Perkins. I just don't want him to get intimidated. He needs to be aggressive and develop his moves in the post.."

You still don't seem to "get it." That's not a put down. That little shot Bynum is now making is improvement for sure. But he needs strength to get that posistion against a strong body like Perkins. It's something he doesn't have. Again a guy like Chandler in New Orleans, sure. But not Perkins. The whole idea of denying position is to make Bynum shot from farther away from the basket. That's what Perkins does to Bynum.

It's not about be intimidated or immature. It's pure strength and nothing more.

Andrew is 21. Four years from now, chances are that he'll have an Olympic gold medal and a couple of NBA championship rings in his trophy case. He'll be all of 25 then. And he'll be a lot stronger than he is today. And he's nobody's weakling now!

Posted by: bronxlakerfan | December 09, 2008 at 06:55 PM

Andrew is the perfect example. He really looks lost out there on defense, getting his few blocks on dumb plays by the other team in my opinion. Other teams are pulling him out of the lane and he is getting caught in between on pick and rolls, not showing enough to prevent a good pass but not holding back enough to cover the roller. He needs to trust his teammates to cover him and show strong enough to prevent a good pass.

He also needs to realize that Salmons and Udrih are going to make 90% of their layups off that square foot of glass on either side of the basket and meet them there to block there shot rather than getting caught too far in front of the rim, where he gets juked out and the driver goes up and under him to lay the ball in. Protect the rims means what it says. You know where the player is going to go end up so just be patient and meet him there. Worst that will happen is that he will have to take a much tougher shot.

We need to be able to pressure the ball handler and stop penetration by doubling and trapping AND we need to be in position to protect the rim when penetrators get through. We probably won’t be able to do that completely but should be able to enough to win.

Offensively, this should be a huge night for Drew and Pau and Kobe in the post. Control the boards and you usually control the game. Could be 3 guys with 20 points tonight.

Anyway, JMNSHO.

snippet:
They (specifically Andrew Bynum) couldn't stay out of foul trouble on a night where the matchups inside favored LA. The box score shows a tough shooting night for Kobe Bryant, Trevor Ariza, and basically everyone on the team not named "Pau" or "Gasol." They couldn't match the passion of Sacramento. But most of all, the Lakers were terrible defensively, particularly against the pick and roll. Wretched. Abysmal. Cataclysmic. Go ahead and break out your Roget's, because there are plenty more outstanding descriptors, including some that can't be written on a family website, but that more accurately reflect the feelings of fans, coaches, and players alike.

exholdvr,

you wrote: Not all of us. Lamar's best position is PF, he is not good at perimeter defense against SFs, and he doesn't have a good outside shot. On this roster, the best way to use him is in some type of Bynum/Gasol/Odom PF/C rotation.

my response: kobeblitz isn't going to like this. lol

Posted by: hobbitmage | December 11, 2008 at 05:49 PM

Wouldn't this mean that the penetration issue is not
with the pg's, but with the Bigs being in the wrong
position to stop the pg's? Posted by: hobbitmage | December 12, 2008 at 07:50 AM

Is this really the kind of thing you want to talk about with everybody listening.? ROFLMAO

Posted by: MAMBA24 | December 12, 2008 at 08:25 AM

I think Bynum is our center of the future. He has the tools, the right attitude and all the pieces around himnow to help him grow into that role. However, we also have to take Kobe into account. He wants to win it NOW. The starting 5 that went to the Finals last year si a well balanced group, I think adding Vujacic to that mix and moving Vlad to the bench gives us size and shooting off the bench and allows us to rotate with guards and both forwards on the perimeter.

To Con my own post, I also don't really see the need to push the bright, red, PANIC button, yet. We're frickin 18 and 3 for Pete's sake. If we had gone a five game bender...that would be another story. But this team and they way the rotations are set looks good, they have a couple of adjustments to make, Lamar to get shooting a bit more and few shots to drop for Kobe and we're back to double-digit blow-outs.

Let's keep the passion flowing though, folks, it's a thing of beauty.

Posted by: Jamie Sweet | December 12, 2008 at 01:03 PM

Ding’s article makes a good point that the Lakers need to adjust to what other teams are doing to pull our bigs out of the paint. That is what Phil should be doing rather than benching Drew because his defense is not what he wants it to be.

Drew has a great attitude. He just needs to be told exactly what he is to do when his man sets up at the 3-point line or he is defending a high pick and roll. Does he double and show strong to prevent the pass? Or does he stay with his man and leave the guard on his own with the ball handler?

Sorry, but Andrew Bynum IS our future franchise player, as evidenced by the contract extension we just gave him. Despite being only 75% of the player he was last year, Drew still leads the team in blocked shots and rebounds per minute and was the major factor in our defensive success earlier in the year. The Lakers just need to adjust to everybody running plays down the middle to avoid sideline traps and parking their big men out by the 3-point line. Of course, other team will adjust again and we will have to respond. That is just how basketball X’s and O’s work.

The one thing I am confident of is that we have the raw material to be a much better and tougher defensive team. Drew will provide the muscle and Trevor the hustle. But it takes time and teaching and repetition to get everybody working on the same page. Phil’s great strength in the past has been building great teams. I have a lot of faith in him and our players to solve this problem by season’s end. Then we will kill the Celtics.

Wow - my profile and Bria's profile on the same day - hello sensory overload!
I was hoping for another beauty tip along the lines of "moisturize, moisturize, moisturize", but I guess I'll just have to settle for "being genuine and really caring about others."

The benchmob played decent today. Bynum had mixed results. Foul trouble really robbed him of his game mojo. 13 rebounds in 24 minutes. Quite good! His rebounding throughout the game would certainly have helped the team keep the big lead they had against the Kings. Our Lakers got in trouble when they went small and, as a result, spread them out. Drew will learn how to play with fouls as he gains experience. He is the KEY!

Phil, keep the tape and show the 3rd Qtr. to the boys tomorrow. We are getting there again. Let's practice. Nothing like rediscovering SUCCESS! Keep believing...

Laker pride through ADVERSITY!

snippet:
Three Bad:

* Andrew Bynum: It wasn't all bad, as Bynum finished with 10 boards and had some decent moments in the second half, but all told it was a frustrating night for LA's young C. He opened the game aggressively looking for his shot, but too often forced the issue and must have thought the rim was replaced with one of those undersized, gnarly ones you see at carnivals and state fairs. Nothing would go down... including his foul count. He picked up a pair of fouls only 36 seconds apart in the second quarter, giving him three on the night. PJ elected to keep him in the ballgame... until Bynum picked up his fourth less than a minute later. Eventually, Drew would foul out, but at least it was with authority as he practically hog tied Spencer Hawes under the basket in the fourth.


LakerTom,

you wrote: our best defensive team may well be Kobe, Fish, Lamar, Pau, and Drew,

I disagree. Ariza is a better defensive SF than Lamar.
Did you mean this rotation as a starting rotation?

AK,

If Lamar keeps playing the way he has been playing,
why can't Powell take some of his minutes?

Mike T,

you wrote: It's not about hunger. It's pure strength and nothing more.
I don't blame the Lakers' players. It's not that they're not trying. They are trying but what can you do when it's purely physical?

my response: I completely disagree. Shaq was bigger
& stronger than Hakeem and it didn't matter. He got
schooled. As a C, in Minnesota, KG alternated b/n C &
PF didn't he? Tim Duncan alternates b/n C & PF doesn't
he? Didn't Barkley sometimes play an undersized C?
It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the
fight in the dog! I am not saying that our C's don't have
desire. I'm saying they don't have defensive skills, but
in today's game offense is more noteworthy &
they have focused on offense. Along with your well
documented mantra, the need of a defensive minded
C is clear. If Mihm purposed in his heart to be a def.
minded rebounding machine, to deny penetration and to
alter shots the Lakers would have a 10 man rotation with
Mihm as the backup C not Pau Gasol. BTW, Mbenga
is bigger and stronger than all of our playing C's. It is well
documented in the NBA that skill is superior to strength.
Consider the Olympics: Bosh outplayed Howard and
Dwight is *definately* stronger than Bosh!

That's my .02 cents. You'll need to sell some stock to go
buy a cup of coffee at starbucks with it.

CHAPTER 4 - HOBBITMAGE STRIKES BACK!!!!!!!!!!

CHAPTER 4 - HOBBITMAGE STRIKES BACK!!!!!!!!!!

hobbit - you're scaring me.........

Bria - I enjoyed your profile especially your comment that the defition of beauty is being genuine and caring for others. I hope all your dreams come true. But in the meantime keep representing the Laker Nation with that "1,2 step" like Ciara said.

Wait. Hold on ...

somebody wrote: So let’s set the record straight. Hobbitmage is NO Andrew Bynum fan. Even a fool could see from his history of posts that he has no respect and little appreciation for what Andrew has done for the team or what he means to this year’s chances to 3-peat much less what he means to the franchise’s future. Even a fool can read between the lines and see the charade that hobbitmage is now trying to pull off is just another attempt to beguile, mislead, and misinform so as to create the illusion that he supports Andrew Bynum. when the reality is that he would likely jump up clapping if Drew got hurt again.

my response:

Let's be crystal clear about this.

Some old man in northern california can't remember the alphabet let alone
rather I am or am not a Bynum fan.

I just spent ~ 30 mins looking through the Lakersblog archives.

There are lies, darn lies, & the whoppers that LakerTom tells.

There is few if any posts in the archives to support the huge lies that LakerTom
tells about me and other people who have said negative things about
Bynum w/in the last year.

The truth, as given by the archives of the Lakersblog, is that Bynum has
been doing the same crap for years and people have been calling him
out on it for years.

I once told KobeMVP888 to go check the archives. He refused to do it and
told a bunch of lies about me.

Per the archives, 2 years before it happened, *I* said that the Lakers could/
would beat the Celtics with Bynum at C.

Now, will the senile old fart in Northern California kindly shut up!

@Jon K - thanks for dropping in that post from back in the day.

For the Record,

There is no evidence, whatsoever, that I would ever be happy for any Laker

It's a lie stated by a liar!

The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill, and suspicion can destroy, and the thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own; for the children, and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to The Twilight Zone.

Jefe101,

A pleasure to meet you Sir.

MM - Can we get the Bikini Shots of the Laker Girls from the Calendar to go along with these profiles? I don't recognize them otherwise.

ROTFLMAO @htj...

Lakers Live is on right now - broadcasting indoors because of the wind & cold - and SOCKS IS RUNNING UP & DOWN THE FLOOR IN THE BACKGROUND!!

ChicNstu I hold heartedly agree with your Comment!

lew - Remember the Titans is one of my absolute favorite movies. I love true stories, and sports true stories especially. And you're right about the soundtrack - it's off the chain!

Great news justa...I'm tuning in...

Bynumite moving well...

Mamba24..LMAO that was a typo.

Jon K - I really enjoyed your comment last thread. I think you're right - we all just expect this to go the Lakers way. We feel that sense of destiny - that it's a done deal. It's dangerous thinking for the team - but I gotta say it's a lot of fun for me as a fan!

Yes we feel destiny but even more than that is the...Density!!!!!!!!

Maybe I haven't been spending enough time on the blog lately. People are forgetting about THE LOVE.


Love is long suffering,
love is kind,
it is not jealous,
love does not boast,
it is not inflated.

It is not discourteous,
it is not selfish,
it is not irritable,
it does not enumerate the evil.
It does not rejoice over the wrong, but rejoices in the truth

Just something i heard once.

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE LOVE

GO LAKERS!

How's this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R9hwGOObqs

LakerTom/MVP/hobbit,

I usually stay out of beefs when they reach this level...but as someone that enjoy reading posts from each of you I felt compelled to chime in on this one.

LakerTom/MVP - in the short time I've been posting regularly on the blog (July 2010) I haven't seen any evidence to support hobbit being a "Bynum basher" or wanting him hurt. IMHO, to call him out as such was/is out of line and seemed to be an attempt to provoke.

hobbit - To resort to calling LakerTom or anyone else names is way out of line.


I agree with phred.

It's all about the LOVE!

Today we get not only LeBump, but le bump and grind as well!
As mamba24 would say...

let's get it going - Sunday night is Lakers night:

hope everyone had a great weekend & enjoys the game-

@phred - that very timely quote is from Paul and can be found in 1 Corinthians 13.


@hobbit - nice Soul to Soul reference!

Justanothermambafan my dear,

I'm sorry that you had to see that.

ChicNStu,

There are two *dubious* posters who continually tell lies about anyone
who disagrees with them. Bynum in particular.

Those posters are LakerTom & KobeMVP888. Neither has any acquaintance
with the truth. I doubt that they can even spell it.

So ... When they continue with their lies about what I or KB Blitz have said
about Bynum, y'all now have more than just my statements that they're
lying. Y'all have actual posts from years ago which show that they're
lying.

Let's get on with winning a championship this year instead of listening to
people who merely want to promote their own views as truth instead of
actually looking for the truth.

Sound good?

GOD@#%%^$$@!!! NOW THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!! CRANK IT UP CHICNSTU!!!!!

Hmmm, it judging from the two profile pictures so far, it seems that to be a Laker girl you have to have 34 big things that have taken a lot of professional work, and 32 of them are teeth.

hobbit- he who pondereth revenge keeps his own wounds green-

not sure what that is from either.

Sorry for the 3peat post...weird it was freezing up...

Sounds good to me sir. And uh Hobbit…I apologize! I just hope poor justanothermambafan isn't traumatized for life. She is such a fragile flower...even when ripping out throats.


And as the sun slowly sinks in the sky one lone warrior walks across the plains :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDpJoykyfOE – IS THERE NO ONE ELSE

Well - judging my phred's previous comment, he's ON. And we're in for a long night on the chat LOL!

hobbit - I'm fine. And yes - let's just focus on the business of winning. Whatever - or whoever - helps us do that MUST be cheered for.

Yes you are Fabulous!!!! Fine indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LROB,

you wrote this: hobbit - To resort to calling LakerTom or anyone else names is way out of line.


my response:

With respect, I disagree with your opinion. I am sick and tired of LakerTom
and KobeMVP888 misrepresenting *me* in regards to Andrew Bynum.
Furthermore, to boldly write that I would be happy if one of the Lakers
got hurt should be grounds for being banned from this blog.

He's an outright liar & most of the people on the blog just sit quietly and
let him tell lies. I'd like to see some of the regular posters actually call
him on his lies and get him to stop it. Apparently, y'all are too busy.

It was LakerTom's attitude the past summer which caused me to target him
and caused him to run away like a punk. Now, he's starting the same crap
all over again and once again y'all are just quietly letting him tell lies because
he's a "sacred cow" of the blog.

I don't have much in this world, but I do have my integrity & my good name.
If he's going to insult me, tell lies about me, and the rest of this blog is going
to allow him to do this for the sake of peace ... then I have a choice.

I can either leave this blog or I can beat the crap out of him verbally.

In case you're unclear on where I stand, let me be clear:

I WILL NOT TOLERATE A SENILE OLD MAN LYING ABOUT ME.

*You* can make a difference. *You* can call him on his lies. *You*
can ask the moderator, Mark Medina, to warn LakerTom to stop being
so provocative. And while you're at it, you can throw in KobeMVP888
also.

Have a great night.

Go Kobe!
Go Lakers!!!

Phred,

you wrote: it's all about the love.

my response: kindly tell that to the Christians who were wrapped up in
animal carcass' and fed to the lions.

Sometimes, a man/hobbit just needs to stand up and be counted.

Hobbitmage in times of stress these words always comfort me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXhKzY0BKwY - Blade

mage- claiming martyrdom and second guessing the apostle paul?

They say that cat HobbitMage is a Bad Mother..shut your mouth, but I'm just talking about Hobbitmage, Then we can dig it!!!! He's a complicated man...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFlsufZj9Fg&feature=related

Phred,

nope. I'm not claiming martyrdom. You've also mis-represented the
Apostle Paul.

The passage is 1 cor. 13. [ verses 4-8 if you need specifics ]
It is written to the church at Corinth. The admonition is to love other
Christians. The greek word for love, in that passage is Agape.

evidence to support this:

1 cor. 1:2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are sanctified
in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in every place call on
the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1 cor. 13:9

For *we* know in part and we prophesy in part ...

1 cor 13:13 and now abide faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest
of these is love.


So ... if you're trying to get me to be more understanding of LakerTom ...
you'd better fetch the verse which says:

"Love your enemies as yourself".

If you go there, I'm going to pull out the old testament which says, "an eye for
an eye".

If you say that that is old testament, I'm going to pull the words of Christ
which said, "I came not to abolish the law, but to fulfill it."

Furthermore, I get to pull out ... "Speak the truth in loved".

So. Don't start none and their won't be none. No where am I called to be a
field mouse, so that some pompous windbag can mis-represent me.


...
Let's keep the passion flowing though, folks, it's a thing of beauty.
