My kid asked ‘why would he be in a helicopter’ and I had to explain how super duper rich people travel and traffic is for peasants.
But every seven years rich celebrities have to tithe one of their best and brightest to the gods of air travel for the privilege.January 27, 2020 at 8:19 pm #145508January 27, 2020 at 8:22 pm #145509January 27, 2020 at 8:56 pm #145510YahtzeeParticipant

Can you imagine schlepping your kid to a game in the family truckster and some guy arrives with his kid via helicopter? Jesus. Go play baccarat or whatever, this shit ain’t for you. Also gotta think they land someplace else and still drive in. For an area game seems dumb, although of course LA traffic.

When Bill Russell checks out how much fan fare will he get? A few highlights on ESPN. Half the viewers never even heard of him.January 27, 2020 at 10:31 pm #145514

How about the dynamic that you have a kid on the team and a certain few come by copter. Do you eventually get the hint that your kid is Ringo and is only there as a place holder util a better fit is found?January 28, 2020 at 8:13 am #145518Canadian SoldierParticipantJanuary 28, 2020 at 8:17 am #145519Blinded By The LombardisParticipant

My buddy’s sister named her kid Kobe (her husband’s favorite player) He’s about 12 so by the time her could be truly into basketball Kobe was on the back 9/injured/retired. But he does get to answer the question, as a (likely) non rich/famous person the rest of his life…”yes, after him…yes, I was sad I guess…so about that job listing..”January 28, 2020 at 11:07 am #145527Florida Sox FanParticipant
Better than naming your kid “ESPN”, pronounced Es-pin. I know two people who did that, kids must be about 15 now.January 28, 2020 at 11:09 am #145529January 28, 2020 at 11:10 am #145530January 28, 2020 at 11:16 am #145531
My approach would be favorite players or places or musicians are good dog names. Fenway? Good dog name. Bruschi? Can’t go wrong with that. Dogs only have to deal with it for what 14 years max so it works. Kobe makes a good dog name.January 28, 2020 at 11:47 am #145533
No black box on the helicopter. Not sure if that’s odd or not, I assumed every aircraft had a black box.January 28, 2020 at 11:53 am #145534BrianInLAParticipant
I saw that. Didn’t realize that was optional these days. Why would you ever NOT want one?January 28, 2020 at 11:54 am #145535Laszlo PanaflexParticipantJanuary 28, 2020 at 12:02 pm #145536
Heck I thought you needed 2 of them. One of them was recording the pilots and one was doing something else. Who knows. Maybe they didn’t want them because of weight especially if they are optional?January 28, 2020 at 12:40 pm #145537
Why don’t they make the whole helicopter out of the same stuff they make the black box?
you didnt hear? no black box on the copter. settings and such were stored on an ipad or other smallish device.January 28, 2020 at 12:43 pm #145538January 28, 2020 at 12:46 pm #145539BrianInLAParticipant
It sure sounds like the pilot tried to fly under the fog and flew right into the side of a mountain from all the eyewitness accounts and the last voice transmission from the pilot. They have been making it VERY clear on tv here that the “Pilot has the final say if they fly no matter what. NO MATTER WHAT!!!” over and over again. I suppose that’s technically true but I’m sure if Kobe said “Hey, there’s an extra $5k in this if you get me to the game on time and if you don’t want to fly I’ll just get someone else to do it” that the pilot probably could have been talked into it. To not fault him at all is just more stupid media. Brady gets ripped for posting a pic of his kids shirtless in an artistic and loving pic. Kobe puts his kid in danger, she ends up dying in a senseless accident, and he’s a hero?
What has been fascinating is that everyone at work who is vocally into the #metoo movement and comments on every single piece of Weinstein news are all on the side of Kobe vs the girl he raped. Its mind boggling.
