Happy Birthday

Murder Board Sessions is one years old today.

I know I’ve probably said this before & I will keep saying it, but never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine Murder Board Sessions to be where it is today.  What started out as just an idea to get my thoughts out has become something I’m really passionate about.  I am so thankful for all the opportunities I have been able to experience as well as being able to meet so many great people.  I hope there is more to come because you guys are the reason why we do what we do.  Thank you to every single listener out there who has listened since the beginning or even midway since we started.   Like I said before, the most difficult thing to do when you have something new is to get someone (anyone really) to listen and genuinely care about what you have to offer.  My gratitude will never be enough to say thank you.  I am very proud of what we have been able to accomplish in a year and I hope we are able to go beyond what we have done to be better.

Another big thank you to all the guests we have had the privilege of talking to this past year.  We understand your time is valuable and we appreciate you spending some of that time talking with us.  You have no idea how much it means to us.  Keep up the great work you do because this show wouldn’t be where it is today without your hard work.  The door is always open for you at Murder Board Sessions :)

And finally, thank you to Gray who has been my partner in crime.  Murder Board Sessions wouldn’t be where it is today without your time and input.  As different as we are (yet similar), I am grateful to not only have you on this journey with me, but as a true friend.

Here’s to another year Castle fans!

Since Gray wrote something nice & got me all emotional, I have the need to write this post.  Plus her saying something really nice & sentimental is like my mom eating Korean BBQ (IT NEVER HAPPENS).  So here it goes:

Castle is something special & it has changed my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined.

First, I want to thank Castle for existing.  Without this show Mondays are just Mondays.  I honestly can’t explain what a blessing it is to have this show in my life because it’s hard for me to put all my jumbled thoughts on paper.  Just know that I wouldn’t be where I am today without this show.  No Castle means no Murder Board Sessions which means not knowing some of the greatest people I have had the privilege of meeting/talk to which means not having the opportunities to do some of the cool things that I got/get to do.

Next, I want to thank every single Castle fan out there who listens to Murder Board Sessions.  Without you guys, there would be no podcast.  Simple as that.  Having you guys listen week after week & giving us your thoughts/opinions is so important to us.  The most important thing about having a “show” is having an audience.  If you don’t have an audience, then why are you doing it?  Plus I never imagined we would have over 10 people listening to us talk about Castle because Murder Board Sessions started pretty late in the series & why would you spend an hour of your life listening to someone else’s thoughts?  It really blows my mind on how much great feedback we have gotten & we can’t thank you guys enough.  Murder Board Sessions & Castle, in general, has put me in touch with so many great people (fans & crew members) & it’s awesome because being able to connect with someone based on our favorite show is pretty cool.  I am proud to call all of you guys my friends.  You also have to admit our “normal” friends (in real life) don’t really understand our love for Castle right? Or is it just my friends?

Finally, a big big thank you to Gray. (P.s. This is me still enjoying the fact that you have human emotions tonight) I honestly can’t thank this girl enough for being with me every step of the way on this journey & I couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime.  I wouldn’t be where I am without her, Murder Board Sessions wouldn’t be the same without her.  It’s funny because my first encounter with Gray was over email & I literally had no clue what she looked like or what her personality was.  All I knew was that she was a Castle fan & I’m really glad I took that chance to ask her to be apart of Murder Board Sessions because it has been one of the greatest decisions I have made.  I also find it funny how we are so different, yet really similar in some ways.  Murder Board Sessions is really important to me & she really have no idea how much I appreciate the fact that she is willing to give up her time even though I don’t pay her (I wish I could though).  She is more than just a the half of Murder Board Sessions, she is someone that I am glad to call my friend.  It truly is a blessing to have her in my life & I am grateful.

So thank you Castle for existing & to Gray for being there, you really have no idea how much it means to me.

To Tank Or Not To Tank?

That is the question.

In my opinion - TANK.

Here’s why:  With the situation that the Lakers are in, why waste energy from the players to make the 8th seed of the playoffs only to get swept the 1st round?  It doesn’t make any sense.  When this season started we all knew it was going to be one of those rebuilding seasons.  So I personally had no expectations for the Lakers to make playoffs let alone I’m not surprised of the shitty record that they have right now.  A lot of Laker fans reading this are probably saying that I’m a “fake” Laker fan or whatever it may be, but let’s real here guys - I’m being real.  Some Laker fans have that pride of “its win or nothing”, which is not a bad thing because all we’ve ever known is winning & nothing less but at the same time we have to be realistic with our situation.  Our team is getting old, Kobe is getting old.  His era is pretty much at the end & we need to rebuild to start a new era.

This season is pretty much at its halfway mark & we are 13-18 with losing 6 games in a row already.  I can’t even remember the last time we won a game!  The injuries this season didn’t help us out either.  It pretty much swallowed up half of our team & maybe more (praying that it won’t).  We are barely hanging by a thread right now.

I was listening to ESPN Radio the other day in the car & I believe (I forgot) someone had a poll of: There are 43 games left in the season, how many more games do you think the Lakers will win?  Will they be over or under the 25 game mark? I forgot who it was but they were saying they believed the Lakers would be under 25 games. - I would have to agree because everyone is injured & trying to get a constant chemistry back with people coming in & out of injury is difficult.

In the beginning of this season I was a little mad at the Lakers (even though I told myself I wouldn’t be). Mad about the constant losing because I thought things would be different, but thinking about it all I want right now is to enjoy this season whether they lose or win.  Just enjoy the game of basketball.  Whether this team has their full roster or half of their roster I have to admit that some of their games are entertaining to watch because we haven’t seen a fast break for a while! (Kidding) But honestly, the attitude of this team during these dark times have been amazing.  If it were any different the Lakers would be in a deep deep hole.

So tank, rebuild for the future of this franchise & enjoy this season for what it is.

P.S. - If the Lakers were to only win one more game this season, dear baby Jesus please let it be against these leprechauns.
