first_imgAs most everyone in the free world has surely heard by now – if you haven’t, sorry you had to hear it from me – Kobe put on a show for the ages on Sunday with a ridiculous 81 points. Read that again. Eight. One. It takes Lamar Odom a week to do that. That’s more than Andrew Bynum and Von Wafer have combined for all season. Ryan Seacrest barely has that many shows. But, because I missed most of the game (c’mon, folks, like you weren’t watching “Desperate Housewives” too), I decided to ask a few people you might’ve heard of just what they thought of the second most productive night in NBA history. Wilt Chamberlain: 81? So what? I had 10,000. Oh, you mean points? Well, I’ve got him there, too. Michael Jordan: That’s a lot of points. I’m impressed. Hold on, my hand is interrupting – something about six rings… Rafael Palmeiro: Amazing. And he turned down those vitamins I offered him. Vince Carter: I think it was bad for the NBA, because he was setting a bad example for the kids and stuff. I mean, what’s he gonna do next? Stop trying and then mope around until his team trades him to a contender? How selfish can he be? David Thompson: Hey, I scored 73. How hard could it be? Elgin Baylor, tugging his hair out: How close was he to joining us, again? And, finally, Phil Jackson: It was a solid effort. But he could involve his teammates more. And, he could shoot less. He could play within the triangle more, like I intended. But, it was a solid effort.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgMiami, Florida – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineSeaDream Yacht Club is named as one of “Top 10 Cruises for the New Year” in ISLANDS Magazine, December 2010 issue. The timing couldn’t be better, as SeaDream announces new voyages featuring the exquisitely beautiful Grenadine Islands, one of the most pristine yachting playgrounds in the Eastern Caribbean. SeaDream’s President, Bob Lepisto said, “The Grenadines are considered among sailors as one of the best tropical destinations in the world. The protective reefs make for smooth sailing and the beauty of the islands is breathtaking.” Lepisto added, “We modified our November and December 2011 itineraries so that we could offer five uniquely spectacular Caribbean voyages sailing from Barbados and Antigua. Its planned so guests booking two consecutive voyages not only obtain a discount on the second voyage, but will enjoy many ports not visited during their first voyage.”Starting with November 13, 2011, three departures from Antigua and two departures from Barbados are now scheduled for SeaDream I. Both Antigua and Barbados have modern international airports serviced by several carriers. Yachting St. Vincent & The Grenadines is magical. SeaDream drops anchor in secluded lagoons with turquoise seas and powder white sand beaches. Itineraries include the island of Bequia, a tiny green island just seven miles square where islanders still make their living from fishing, lobster diving and boat building. SeaDream’s Club and Activities Director will introduce guests to a local “hot spot” where lobster pizza is the order of the day. Explore the island of Carriacou, its name derived from Indian settlers meaning “land surrounded by reefs”. Carriacou has majestic mountainous ridges and stunning beaches. No Caribbean voyage is complete without SeaDream’s Champagne and Caviar Splash™ and the island of Mayreau will be the setting. Mayreau is wonderfully quiet, only a handful of roads, no airport and a small smattering of locals. Tobago, the Tobago Cays and Grenada offer guests premier snorkeling and diving options and the chance to make use of SeaDream’s water sports Marina and complimentary water toys. Select voyages include Rodney Bay, St. Lucia; its 250 slip Marina is one of the Caribbean’s premier yachting centers.The expression “Yachting” is not a sentiment about size; it is a statement about lifestyle aboard the twin vessels, SeaDream I & II. Chic and stylish, SeaDream’s 56-stateroom yachts are favored for their elegant informality, state-of-the art facilities, personal service provided by a crew of 95, inclusive open bar and gratuities, ocean view accommodations, luxury spa and world class cuisine.www.seadream.comlast_img read more
