&#160;</P>Flittering and twittering on a &ldquo;vacation&rdquo; day that&rsquo;s got the pulse rate quickening because of the &#160;anticipation of tonight&rsquo;s professional jousting between the Thunder&rsquo;s Lanky and Lovely Longhorn and the Marvelously Majestic Magician. Watching Dwight Howard swat flies is a thing of beauty. No more so than seeing our slender sharpshooter swish 26 foot pull-up jumpers. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;Something about being 6-10 and outshooting the world. Go ahead and bet me your next paycheck on a game of H-O-R-S-E. You get the human race. I get Kevin Durant. Good luck. Go to your corner and come out fighting. Then mail me a Benji to 6409 Heritage. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Classy Superman. Thunder and Heat. Quite a treat. Especially in a city once enthralled by a Wimpy Halstead fight at the Lincoln Plaza and CBA game at the Cox Center. Now we&rsquo;ve got Durant and Howard. Full house booming &ldquo;I Got a Feeling!&rdquo; It&rsquo;s Wimpy on &lsquo;roids. The Cavalry times a thousand. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Hard to beat KD &amp; Company on one end and Superman on the other. &#160;Then there&rsquo;s Serge, the Thunder&rsquo;s version of the human flyswatter. Splurge I-Blocka: our Congo aviator with the wingspan of a Cessna. Quite a sight when 19,000 rowdies fly first-class Air Congo. Climb aboard. If you can get a ticket. I&rsquo;ve spent three days looking for a couple. You&rsquo;d think this was OU-Texas. Another sellout at the OK Corral. Somebody&rsquo;s gettin&rsquo; rich. Er. The rich get richer and we love it. Give us a winner and we&rsquo;ll give you our first-born. Play some defense and you get our second. Say &ldquo;Amen&rdquo; and you can have the whole litter. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Adding to the day&rsquo;s enjoyment is the warmth of blazing oak from the inviting fireplace. Dan Jenkins old saying applies that nasty disease is nothing compared to marital discord. Forget gangrene, let&rsquo;s argue about fireplace ventilation. Temporary insanity. Temporary marital discord. That what we&rsquo;ve had on the boulevard after the Spicy Wifey went ape-dung after the Smokeout of 20-11. Blazing saddles.&#160; Watching chimney smoke barrel back at you is worse than a tight fit fumbled punt. Seriously, considering of hanging builder by the hair on his toes. The Wifey Poo none too fond of her beloved abode left smokier and smellier than the Cock of the Walk. (Actually the Cock is a classic and referenced only because of its Hall-of-Fame name.)</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Chimney smoke and Princess not recommended reading. Early morning sirensboth inside and out--worse than gout. Bottom line: Rick of wood just purchased should last till the cows come home (and Spicey Wifey don&rsquo;t own no cows). Word to the wise? Have a good chimney. And a better attorney. &#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Twitter notes to the followers: Twitter or get off the rhymes with spitter. By the way, join me on twitter by goin to: @deanblevins. The employer would like it and we like to please the check-writer. Anyway, here are a few off-day tweets.</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>OKC earned NBA respect taking LA 2 6games n playoffs&rdquo; &amp; with KD &amp; Westy leading USA n summer Worlds. Opp for nuther step 2nite v Superman&amp;Magic</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Most overlooked coach n NBA could be Russell Westbrooks coach: Mo Cheeks. Been there done that and w/out ascension of Westy, OKC = also-ran. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Why would my favorite network do away with The Unitone of best shows on TV. Ran into show star at Staples in playoffs (Dennis Haysber). Studly, just as on film. </P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Thunders Scott Brooks tremendous coach who has earned most imprtnt thing-Respect from players. The ? is can he win w/out DC Adams.</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Thunders Russell Westbrook is so good he can start poorly and still rack up 23/13 and 8. Look out when hes hitting the pull-up 15 footer.</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Thunders Scott Brooks tremendous coach who has earned most imprtnt thing-Respect from players. The ques is can he win w/out DC Adams?</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>&#160;</P>Only thing more predictable than a Kevin Durant twining a must-make free throw was the Prez looking spiffy and pulling off an inspiring speech in Arizona: an apolitical statement of fact. Articulate speeches not necessarily the thing that make nation surge. One step better than a halftime pep talk. But maybe it helps. All that&rsquo;s known for sure is politics and religion are MIA on these pages despite, more passionate interest in that arena than most sports arenas. Folks, it&rsquo;s called aging. &#160;</P><STRONG>&#160;</STRONG></P><BR/>
