"It's hard out here for a pimp."
I heard someone say that at a Seattle Supersonics game in 1997. The Vancouver Grizzlies were in town that night and the Supersonics won by 11. The line stuck with me 'til today. I had just got out of a rough relationship with my ex, she loved blackjack and Las Vegas nightlife more than she loved her family, so I cut her loose and drove the kids and I to Seattle where my mother lived at the time. It took 32 years, but I am learning to understand that in life, no one's loyal and that's the sad truth. My mom died the following year, the Grizzlies played their last game in Vancouver in 2001 before moving to Memphis, and the Supersonics relocated to Oklahoma for the 2008-09 season. Nothing lasts forever. C'est la vie.
It's hard out here for a pimp...but I'm getting by alright.
