Goodbye 2010! But Here's a Look Back

It is that time of the year when people compile top ten lists reflecting upon the events of the past year.  Here are a few I thought you might find interesting.

1).  We begin with a list of significant church/theology events for the past year.  Top 10 Church/Theology Stories

2).  Here's a "list of lists" devoted to the best Christian books released (or read by the list producer) last year.  These lists sure don't match mine.  A List of Christian Book Lists

3).  This one is sad--a list of the top ten crimes of 2010.  Not only is our society filed with personal tragedy, keeping up with it is a cottage industry.  This is the stuff that keeps Geraldo and Nancy Grace on the air.  Is it just me, or does anyone else think Nancy Grace is the most obnoxious person on TV?   Top Ten Crime Stories

4).  Here's the annual list of those celebrities who died this past year.  I'll miss a couple of them.  I won't miss those on this list of whom I've never heard.  Celebs Who Died

5).  Here's a fascinating list of those things Americans hold sacred:  Ten Things We Believe

6).  One of my personal favorites--a list of the top political gaffes of 2010.  Top Ten Political Gaffes

7).  Here's a list of the top sports stories of 2010.  Did Tiger, Favre and LeBron make it?  Not a great year for sports, although my Lakers did beat the Celtics:  Top Ten Sports Stories 

8).  The Pope's trip to London topped the Vatican's top ten for 2010: Top Ten Pope Stories

9).  Finally, here's a top ten list of the most important products from Apple.  I bought an iPhone.  Don't know how I lived without it.  Top Ten Apple Stories

It was a great year for sports with the Saints appearing in and winning their first ever Super Bowl!

Re: Celebs who died

Wow, I've got to watch more TV! I didn't know who half of these people were and of the half I did know, I didn't know half of them were dead.

Regarding the Lakers: Kobe is starting to slow way down now. He has had four surgeries on his right knee. He is getting old, with many miles on his body. He hardly has any lift on his shots, and 8 for 26 shooting nights are now becoming the norm.

Kobe and the Lakers have had a good run, but it is almost over. When Kobe does finally hang 'em up (very soon), that will be it for the Lakers.

Los Angeles will then need a pro football team to keep the fans interested in sports, while the Lakers start with a long re-building process that could take years.

Most of the Dodgers action is found in the courtroom with the McCourts, and "Ol SC" is now relegated to doing programs on T.V. like, "Are you smarter than a 5th grader."

Happy new year!

A happy New Year to you as well.

OK, so Kobe is getting older. But what about KG, Allen, Pierce et al. Not like these guys are spring chickens!

Just as long as LeBron and Company don't win, I'll be happy.

I bought an iPhone also. It is great; way beyond the old Palm Pilot I had years ago. I also bought my first HDTV. That was a nightmare; so many choices. Not to mention the one I bought that was defective. I wish Apple would make HDTVs.

Pastor Kim:

Some of the Celtics are getting old, but, their skills are not diminishing as quickly as those of Kobe.

Here in Phoenix, the new center Gortat is very good. But, the way the Suns are going, they may end up trading Nash. Nash is having a great year, but, often in the NBA, a team has to become very bad in order to become good.

Nash could still fetch a huge return of potential players in a deal. If the Suns can turn it around, they will keep Nash. He is as good as ever, with a couple of more years left in the tank.

I can't stand Lebron James. That hour long press conference he had before announcing where he was going play was too much.

Happy new year, Pastor Kim!

Except we all just had a scare when KG came up lame - they say it's just a calf strain and not the repaired knee but without the Big Ticket we aren't making any Finals.

I read the top stories on church/theology according to Hansen. It reinforced my rejection of the word evangelical to describe myself, and makes me more dependent on the Reformed traditions for sanity.

And among who did that book Radical get such attention? I heard an interview of the author on the radio; he basically didn't say anything new and didn't give the impression that the book was worthy of the attention I heard it was getting.

The Celts should be awesome when Kendrik Perkins comes back. They would have beaten the Lakers last season if Perk wouldn't have missed the last two games of the finals.
