Game Thread @ 17 -- vs. Sacramento

According to today's Ludden article, there is "no timetable for Manu Ginobili's return." Frick on a stick. I realize I am pointing out the obvious, but Manu Ginobili is by far the most exciting aspect about the Spurs (Until Flight suits up) and the team is pretty boring without him.

Sorry for the lack of a real preview; I need a nap before the game. I woke up at 7:30 a.m. and went over to a friend's house to help her with Christmas lights. We cranked up the old-fashioned Christmas tunes (some Bing, a little Nat, a sprinkle of Ed Ames and a heavy dose of some guy whose name I cannot recall for the life of me... not Perry Como, but similar), threw on an extra coat (it was about 38 degrees), got some donuts and had a blast. Before you ask, no, I'm not making this up, she's married and I am not gay. And those animated wire mesh reindeer can be a bitch to put together. Sheesh!

Andy Williams! A heavy dose of Andy Williams! Had to look that up; God bless Wikipedia.

ok, so the contest standings have not beed updated since before the UTA game. Tonight's lines:

Cleveland @ Houston -- HOU -6
Sacramento @ San Antonio -- SA -8.5

Thoughts, fake wagers, favorite Christmas songs? Post away.
