Not that it made a difference here at BSotS, but I never got around to posting September’s Halfway Haikus. By the end of September I was in more of an “f-u” than a “haiku” mood. I’m still in that mood as far as the NBA is concerned, and so I’ll skip September and October altogether.
Focusing more on football than basketball this year is a relatively new thing for me, as I usually temper whatever misgivings or apathy I hold toward the oblong pigskin game of the brutes with a healthy dose of that pick and roll. I’m a Bears fan, a Vikings fan, a Jets fan…even a little bit of a Chargers fan; I cannot be loyal to any one team. But I have been fiercely loyal to the Suns.
I can’t remember who wrote the post and I’m not going to go back and look since I’m not trying to be a journalist here (fact-checking and all that jazz) but I believe it was Alex Laugan who said he hoped that the 2011-2012 season would be ultimately, completely cancelled. I wholly agreed with that notion. Just looking at what we’ve got going for us right now, looking at how pathetic and sad it is for Nash and Hill to have stuck around (although admittedly I’ve been all for it in the past) – it just makes me want to slap an old woman in the face. It makes me want to slam dunk a poor, defenseless turtle. It makes me want to ignore that doggy in the window. It makes me want to…watch more football. How peculiar, all this doom and gloom (and violent thinking, yikes) coming from me while posting on the “Bright” Side. Not exactly dolling out the rainbows and sunshine here.
But…we have a new team president, Mr. Brad Casper. And as I understand it, he had not watched a game or really been a fan until 2005? Seems legit. In all seriousness, I find that a lack of experience can be refreshing in some instances. It happens all the time in government. Shit.
That’s all I have in me for now, especially after taking a moment to read Wil Cantrell’s The Smartest Suits in the Building, Act III. Thank you for that.
