In just 24 hours, I will jump on the road to San Antonio toward the journey that is the NBA season. I will show up early and get in early to see my Spurs warm up for the first game of the new season. I will grin like an idiot and revel at how tall even the small guys are from down near the court as opposed to from the rafters. I haven't decided whether I will bring a sign, but if I do, I'll stand near the tunnel and get it signed before the game. I will put some faces to some names of people I consider friends, and cheer my little heart out. I will most likely miss the free throw I attempt after the game. I will also miss being able to share the gamethread with the rest of the Pounders who are unable to attend in person. GO SPURS GO!!!
