Feliz Navidad Lakers Fans!

What an exciting holiday season this has been thus far! I am thankful to be celebrating my fourth Christmas Holiday as a Laker Girl and cannot wait to cheer on our beloved team when they go head-to-head with the Miami Heat on Christmas Day! A victory that day - would be a fine gift for all us Lakers fans, right? Go Lakers!

Hey, do any of you need a last minute stocking stuffer? If so, just a thought but I’m giving Carl’s Jr. Gift Certificates to my friends and family. You can never go wrong with those little gems. And…..speaking of gems, how about giving a Laker Girl Calendar to any Lakers fan on your holiday list? The 2011 Laker Girls calendar is really nice, I have to admit, I could not be happier with the way it turned out. We all had a blast in Malibu, shooting at some of the most beautiful beachfront homes you could imagine. You can check it out at the Team LA Store (at Staples Center) or online at I hope you will agree!

Although our squad is lucky to be involved in things like: the calendar shoot and on-court performances…..I feel the most rewarding thing we experience is our involvement in community service events. For example, we attended the annual Lakers Christmas Holiday Party for Kids, where the Laker Girls and Lakers players participated in various interactive games with the youngsters. These types of events give us that blessing of witnessing pure joy in the eyes of a child. It’s an incredible feeling.

On behalf of the Laker Girls, the NBA Champion Lakers and the entire Lakers organization, I would like to thank you, the best fans in the world, for your faithful and spirited support. As Dr. Jerry Buss says, you are our crucial “Sixth Man.” The Lakers couldn’t be as successful as we are, without you. I am sure, that with your help this season, we have a great chance for a Three Peat this year! Keep up your enthusiasm because I don’t think you have any idea of how much it helps all of us reach for our very best! As I look forward to going home for Christmas to celebrate with my family, my heartfelt desire for each one of you is that your holiday season will be safe, warm and rewarding wherever you may be.

Happy Holidays Lakers fans and cheers to 2011!!
