The Blot can’t wait for the NBA Finals to finally begin. It’s been way too long since both Conference Finals ended and I don’t think the Association could possibly hype up this series anymore than it already has. The Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics are the league’s two most prestigious franchises and this is definitely the matchup David Stern and the league was desperately hoping for. Kobe, Gasol and Odom vs. Garnett, Pierce and Allen is a series for the ages…or at least for the past few years.
The game starts in just over an hour and I can’t focus on much else. Because of that and still trying to catch up from being out of town for a week, The Blot is having to postpone my Lost season finale recap until tomorrow. Sorry everyone! But, if you want to help out by cheering on my LA Lakers, you can tune into ABC at 9/8 central for Game 1of the 2008 NBA Finals.

Threadless’ annual summer sale is back, and from now until June 8, 2008 all shirts in their inventory can be yours at a discounted price. Some t-shirts are even on sale for as low as $10.00 each. Threadless has also finally reprinted a shirt I’ve been wanting to get for a while, “The Beginning,” so I think I’m going to have to be placing an order later on in the week. Check out “The Beginning” and two other new shirts that I thought were pretty funny below. I can't explain why all of the great shirts this week are animal related, but they are.
We’re inching ever so slowly to the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con in August and the onslaught of exclusive toys and comics continues. The latest is an interesting looking Previews Exclusive Peter Parker Marvel Mighty Muggs vinyl figure with a tingling spider sense. According to this report the SDCC Exclusive Peter Parker Mighty Mugg designer vinyl figure is limited to 3,008 pieces, “the most limited Mighty Mugg to date,” and has a suggested retail price of $20.00 each. (link) I would imagine this toy is going to be a highly sought after collectible by both fans of Spider-Man and collectors of Mighty Muggs.
