Today's Path: "See a Laker's Game"

So I should have written this a week ago, but at least I'm writing it.

Last Sunday, I was able to go see the Lakers play. Since about 7th grade I have loved the Lakers. Not sure why. Maybe it was because St. Louis decided to have every other sports team BUT a basketball one!!! (No, I'm not bitter).

I would have loved to see the Lakers play in L.A., but beggars can't be choosers. The Lakers were in town playing the Suns. Unfortunately, until this past Tuesday I didn't own any Lakers attire (thanks for the shirt Mer) so I couldn't represent my team.

The game was great! Close the entire game. Up until the last 25 seconds of the game, I honestly believed the Lakers could win. But I guess the Suns put something in their water, and they lost.

I enjoyed the game, I am thankful for Nancy and Glenn letting me have one of their tickets!

Rock on,
Lane J

Social Media Takes on a Pancake Breakfast

How do you try and host breakfast for all of your friends? I mean ALL of your friends. It's simple really. You make pancakes Saturday March 7th at 10:30am EST and you post them all over social networks (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Blogs and Beyond).

It started by just my small breakfast club of 4 people. I was responsible for making blueberry pancakes last Sunday, but I couldn't figure out how to get the rest of my friends involved. Yes, my friends extend past the few people here in Phoenix.

decided he wanted to join us but the @BlueFuego jet was being used by the Prime Minister of Togo leaving @TimNekritz no way to get to Phoenix. So with a little magic we made it happen. The best way to share pancakes with all of your friends...Virtually!

So this tomorrow morning when your making breakfast (no it doesn't have to be pancakes @RachelReuben but it would be nice if they were), take pictures and videos, tweet and blog about it. Real time would be amazing. I think I might get out the video cam and stream mine on Ustream.

Yes, I know if might be early for you West Coasters, but I have to work at 9:30am tomorrow. We almost made it 9:30am EST.

Don't forget your hashtag (#pancaketweetup) when uploading and twittering.

Can't wait to see everyone's breakfast tomorrow!

Rock on,
