Take This Tune

Posted: Monday, May 10, 2010 by Travis Cody in

Take This Tune is a feature hosted by my pal Jamie at Duward Discussion. Jamie puts up a video prompt complete with lyrics to the song, and the task is to find another song or to write something inspired by the title of the song or something in the lyrics.

I really enjoy participating in Jamie's feature because of where the prompts take my thoughts and emotions. This week's prompt is Mark Knopfler's Songs for Sonny Liston.

There was a time when I was fascinated by boxing, but it didn't last very long.  I found a competitive outlet that didn't involve my fists.  Football suited me much better than boxing.

So I don't have any boxing stories today.

I will simply report on the status of the NBA Playoffs, since that's where my main interest lies at this time of the year...at least as long as my Lakers are involved.

East Semifinals
  • Boston won game 4 on Sunday against the Cavs to tie their series at 2-2.  The series shifts back to Cleveland for game 5 on Tuesday.
  • Orlando has dominated the Hawks in their series, taking a commanding 3-0 lead into game 4 tonight in Atlanta.
West Semifinals
  • The Suns have simply worn down the Spurs in each game of their series.  Phoenix closed out San Antonio on Sunday and now awaits the winner between Utah and Los Angeles.
  • My Lakers look to end their series against the Jazz tonight in Utah.  This series has been close, but my Lakers have used their size advantage to take a 3-0 lead.



  1. One of these days I'm going to watch some basketball again.
