I was aware of the Commodores but wasn't familiar with that song (was already out of college when it came out).
I found the music industry hype for Bon Jovi to be infuriating -- 'He's just like Springsteen because he's from New Jersey! And he's pop-friendly because he focuses on the fun...
Since the Kings weren't playing, I decided to be a Bucks fan tonight -- small market solidarity and all that. So I really enjoyed the way they took down the Rockets. Harden even got called for a couple of charges o_O .
I suspect that calling attention to the fact that I voted 10-5 would have led to a few senile jokes back around the first of December. Now, I'm utterly amazed that there's a chance it might be right.
What an amazing team!!!
On behalf of myself and my distinguished colleagues The Hammer, Larry89, bubulina, NewArena, and BaDgEraffe, who predicted 10-5 -- I think they can get there. They need to go 2-1 and I think they can do it. Make someone regret going back for thirds in the 4th quarter. That's OUR quarter.
The level of hysteria on this one was utterly ridiculous. There were scenarios where it could have turned out really badly, but they didn't occur. So, in the end, it wasn't very significant. It wasn't the worst trade in NBA history, that was a reflection of the level of hysteria at the time...
If the Kings, in the long run, want to decide between Yogi and Frank, what they've done lately makes a lot of sense to me. We saw for a while the team with Frank and no Yogi. Now, I presume, we're going to see a period of Yogi and no Frank.
