I first heard this song two Saturdays ago while watching a Saturday Night Live rerun, and fell in love with Pearl Jam all over again. (Yes, I know this song was released last year, but I'm a bookworm and a writer and a bit behind on some things, like music.)
Here's a link to the lyrics: http://lyrics.url.com/show/5203/pearl-jam/just-breathe-lyrics

Is Cleveland going to get kicked in the face on national television tomorrow night?
It's written on LeBron's new Web site (www.lebronjames.com) that he will announce his decision live on ESPN tomorrow at 9 PM ET. The special is titled "The Decision". As if a press conference isn't enough, we must have a nationally televised special to cap off all the hype that began in 2009. Funds will be given to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America as a result of this piece of television history, so that makes me feel less ill about it (but still, really?).
I hate to be cynical, but I'm shielding my face tomorrow.
I'd love nothing more than to be proven wrong.

I found this cartoon in the June 24-30 edition of the West Side Leader.
If you're tired of all the hype and speculation like I am, take comfort in the fact that it's been reported that LeBron wants to make his decision by July 5th. That's the day after tomorrow, and he just went up a notch in my book for not dragging this out any more. That's probably the difference between me rooting for him even if he leaves Cleveland or losing respect for him. No matter who he plays for, LeBron is still from Akron, and he wants to win an NBA Championship, and I want LeBron to win a ring, too. Of course, I'd much rather have him win it here, but even as a girl I rooted for both the Cavs and the Bulls. I was a huge Michael Jordan fan and I think LeBron is next in line, no matter what jersey he decides to wear next season.
In the meantime, have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
