I've never been happier (watching a live sporting event, at least). I don't need to go into any details about the game since Chboddis and Stan are already all over that, but I would like to throw in a couple of live details that, I think, could enhance the victory for everyone.
- The Spurs fans started filing out with six(!) minutes left in the 4th. We were only up by thirteen. It was so awesome to watch on so many levels. Lines of little Duncans and overweight Parkers dragging long foam fingers and deflated egos to their cars. Apparently the Spurs' fans are also sore losers. I mean, that's so weak. There were six minutes left!
- The Spurs fans are pretty adamant about disputing every call against them with various swear words in multiple languages, which isn't unusual. Most fans are that way. And they get encouragement from the jumbotron, since it replays every foul.
3) Unrelated, an exceptionally large man offered to buy my Barkley jersey for first one then two then three hundred dollars. He actually presented me with the cash on the spot. But being a good fan, I said hell no.
But if he had gone up to five...well, there's always eBay.
