I have a really good reason for not updating the blog. I am designing a super computer that can be directly implanted inside a person's nose. Or something.
And I don't have all that much to say about the Spurs. Do you really need me to say "The Big 3 combined to shoot 26-40 and 18-21 from the line, yet the game was still in question with 90 seconds to go?" Or to point out that Ginobili got his groove back and that his biggest contribution may have been his effort on the glass, snagging 9 defensive rebounds? Do you really want to know that during half time Matty and I were talking about the idea of trading Tony Parker? And that despite him shooting 8-14, all I can seem to remember is him passing up a wide open jumper at the free throw line? Do you want me to question the effectiveness of building an offense around a point guard who will not and cannot routinely drain an 18' jumper?
Does anyone really want to read me going on and on about my illimitable incredulity regarding Bill Raftery's general lack of knowledge about how to defend Tony Parker? Who wants to see me get bent out of shape because a guy who gets paid to talk about the NBA doesn't really know what he's talking about? But, fuck, he sure knows his way around a catch phrase! Rah rah! Sis boom bah!
Does it make much sense to admit that part of me is rooting against the Spurs, because they have only a 11.235813213455% chance of beating DET anyway and I would rather them lose now so I can have more of my summer free? What kind of fan thinks that? What Spurs fan wants to read that? What if they revoke my membership? WHAT IF TACO CABANA CHANGES FROM QUESO TO NACHO CHEESE?
