Eric Neel Advice for Watchi...

Eric Neel Advice for Watching the Lakers Tonight:

Rage is good. Get unreasonably mad, show some anger all out of proportion with the room you're in. In no way suggest that you understand that this is just a game or that there is a distinction to be made between what happens on the floor and what happens in your own life. I broke a little Hummel figurine during the second quarter last night. Laker rage. They were down, I don't know, by like 79 points or something and couldn't none of 'em hit the broad side of a barn, and they were looking tired and slow and incredibly beatable and I just screamed, you know? Kind of Macauley Culkin in "Home Alone," kind of Janis Joplin at Monterey -- all hurting and helpless and hoping for more. So I'm screaming, only it doesn't feel like quite enough, so I pick up the poor porcelain blue-and-white schoolboy, and hurl him clear across the room, scattering his bits all over the living room floor. And then I just stand there, looking at the shards of schoolboy, then looking up at the screen, as if to say, There, are you happy now?
Later, he turns the TV off, groks with Lisa Marie Presley, and ... well, you'll have to read it.
