I admit it.
There's just no way for me—a normally stoic, meat and potatoes, easily-annoyed sports fan—to hide it any longer
I'm absolutely excited about this marriage between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.
For those of us who have girlfriends, it's hard to go one night without being forced to watch that damn show: Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. I feel like my girlfriend even watches reruns. Or reruns of the reruns. Regardless, it never seems to go away.
Now, at least, we can expect that Lamar Odom will make some cameo appearances. How can't he? It's reality television, right? And the reality is that he is now Khloe's other half.
This means that instead of hanging out at her crappy boutique all day, we can see her chill out in the Lakers press box, schmooze with athletes, perform locker room interviews, and hopefully get some Kobe cameos.
And there's another bit of good news: Lamar Odom is one of the most entertaining athletes in all of sports.
He's no stranger to the limelight. Heck, he only plays in cities with limelights. How else do you explain two different stints in Los Angeles (separated by one sojourn in Miami)?
Lamar's love for candy, one of the weirdest celebrity quirks in recent memory, is also hilarious. He once got a championship trophy made out of candy...but nobody ever got to see him eat the damn thing. Did he ever down it? How long did it take?
These sorts of burning questions will now be answered.
And his music production company is sure to be featured prominently on the show. Maybe we can finally hear him drop a beat.
Perhaps the biggest win-win in terms of this marriage is that we can finally stop hearing Khloe talk about how "everyone thinks she's a tranny." It's such an attention grab. She is cute, and she knows it—albeit her sisters are hotter.
How on Earth can she make such self-critical comments now that she is married to a bona fide NBA super star? She can't. She'll have to move on emotionally.
Of course, the only thing better than having Lamar make more appearances on the show...or hearing Khloe stop ripping on herself...would be if she quit her job, got knocked up, and returned to a life of privacy to raise her family without cameras.
But that would just mean that my girlfriend moves on to a new show.
So I lose either way.
Better to cut my losses, celebrate this marriage, and hope that it becomes the Khloe and Lamar Show.
That would be kind of tight.
