Last night the Arizona D'backs were in town playing the Dodgers and I get a text at 11pm from Justin Upton, who just happened to be on the cover of ESPN a few issues ago. Oh, and the D'backs currently have the best record in baseball. The guys were all going to Hollywood club Area after the game and wanted me to hang. I was just leaving the Lakers playoff game, so I swing by to meet up with Orlando Hudson, Chris Young, Upton and few of their pals. We catch up, chat about the game and laugh at the Hollywood scenesters break dancing. I still don't know why they let me crash another guys night, but hey, I guess some people just enjoy my company. What can I say?
Highlight of the night? When the DJ played Usher's "Love In This Club." You see, that's J-Up and my song. The DJ refused to play it for us at a club when we requested it for Orlando in AZ because it was "too slow." Now I hear the song everywhere.
I snagged some Kanye-looking glasses for the guys and Young promises he'll wear them to the game tomorrow ... we'll see about that. Seriously, this has been the week of Kanye madness. In the last two days I've been to a Kanye West concert after-party, a Lakers playoff game and hung out with a bunch of MLB players ... what the heck?!?! Will someone please tell me when I should wake up?
Better yet, tell me when I can sleep. But whatever, I'm young. So rock on. And please keep it coming world, destiny, karma, energy or whatever is making all this amazingness happen.
