That young lady pictured above is Charlotte Cross. And she may very well be the oldest Lakers fan alive. Now, even though living to see the age of 106 is something for all of us to marvel at, there is another quality that Charlotte has that is more newsworthy, to me at least. That quality is that she doesn’t like Lamar Odom.
And this isn’t just some blind dislike for Odom. She has reasons. And as much as she dislikes Odom, she loves Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant. But enough about how much she loves Bryant and Fisher; let’s get into why she doesn’t love Odom.
Charlotte is not the sort of fan who shouts at the TV, but if she does have a gripe, it’s usually with Lamar Odom. She complains that the Lakers forward and husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, “isn’t energetic enough.”
You know, I can totally see that, Charlotte. Excellent reason.
Her eyesight is going though, Tony tells me, so Charlotte sometimes blames Odom for things that aren’t even his fault. “She’ll get mad that Lamar is missing a basket when in reality he actually made it.”
Well, she’s at least consistent. Can’t say that about everyone, right?
From what I can tell, this is a quality woman right here. Fellas, go home and tell your lady about Charlotte Cross. Someone they should all model themselves after.
