The Basketball court, and why I hate it so.

From Russell’s Hollyblog

Loud and obnoxious doesn’t even begin to describe the behavior of these guys. Lately I’ve been forced to call the park in order to ask them to close the court at 8 p.m. If I don’t, they let them play. I guess that’s their strategy. Let them play until someone complains. How about that random scream at 1:49?

So now we have the Los Angeles firemen using the court. Robin called me and told me they were there. They are a bit less noisey than the folks that were screaming their guts out last night. What these men lacked in skill was compensated by their incredible arrogance. The guy that I ended up talking to was so stuck up and dismissive! “Have a good day!” my ass! (1:54) I ended up sounding like a total looney. Well, maybe it’s my own fault that I sounded lobotomized, but you gotta remember, I was fresh outta bed! But look at those trucks! So lovely!


About Russell Smith

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Natasha, Maxwell, Tigger and Nigel.
