    Kobe and Gianni Memorial Service

    Maybe 20,000+ attended the service.

    One Star after another gave tribute.

    Some of Michael Jordan's words:

    Maybe it surprised people that Kobe and I were very close friends. But we were very close friends. Kobe was my dear friend, he was like a little brother. Everyone always wanted to talk about the comparisons between he and I. I just wanted to talk about Kobe. You know, all of us have brothers, sisters, little brothers, little sisters who, for whatever reason, always tend to get in your stuff, your closet, your shoes, everything. It was a nuisance, if I can say that word.

    But that nuisance turned into love over a period of time, just because the admiration that they have for you as big brothers or big sisters, the questions, the wanting to know every little detail about life that they’re about to embark on. He used to call me, text me, 11:30, 2:30, 3 o’clock in the morning talking about post up moves footwork, and sometimes the training. At first, it was an aggravation. But then it turned into a certain passion. This kid had passion that you would never know.

    This Staples Center event captured the hearts and minds of countless thousands, maybe millions of basketball fans worldwide!

    Condolences to all who miss him!

    I watched on the telly. Very nicely done.

    RIP Kobe/Gianna


    I moved into the White House three years ago. There was no food and now I'm starving. It's the previous owners' fault!

    "Donald Trump is Jesus to followers of Jesus who reject the actual teachings of Jesus."

    Paraphrase: Obama is Jesus to followers of Jesus who reject the actual teachings of Jesus
    Kobe is Jesus to the followers of Jesus who reject the actual teachings of Jesus
    Bernie Sanders is Jesus to the followers of Jesus who reject the actual teachings of Jesus
    Calamity is Jesus to followers of Jesus who reject the actual teachings of Jesus

    I could go on and on........

    Back to the Memorial for Kobe and his daughter, it was a very nice well put together service. One thing it didn't have in it was anything about politics. His wife put this together for Kobe's fans and is obviously bright and intelligent as well as beautiful. She forgave him and watched him grow as a man, a husband and a father. It's too bad that Democrats don't learn the same things that she learned. Her faith in Christ is obvious which allowed her to to forgive and move on. A deep love in her God made this possible. Something again Democrats who are faithless (most are) don't have and it is so obvious in our world today...The hatred for Trump is to the point of ridiculous.

    Na, now you're shoe-horning. Trump's cult has literally acknowledged the presence of Jesus in their little orange sinner. It's a shoe that fits. The other, not so much.
