I went to bed three hours ago at 9:30. I was exhausted. I was up late watching the game against the Nuggets last night. I had to get up early to take the dog to the vet. I was in meetings all day. I've been fighting off illness all week. I was exhausted. I went to bed.
However, two hours in I woke up. My wife is sick with a hacking cough that won't quit, I have a dog walking around with an e-collar rubbing the walls, and I have a female dog who won't stop talking. So here I sit, working on the game thread in the middle of the night unable to sleep.
It's a damn good thing the Spurs weren't soft against the Nuggets because I would be mad about that too. As it is, the Thursday night win feels like a statement game. Maybe we are getting down to business now. I don't know about Pop, but I have upgraded us. We aren't cottony soft, we are pillow top soft.
It's the late night slumber party. We are staying up all night, bouncing on mattresses, and having a pillow fight. I'm predicting a fun night and a full house. As a bonus, I'm giving out NoDoz. So come on over.
I got a big box. Who's going to get them?

Golden State of Mind has THE strangest arrangement. What appears to be the main blogger is YaoButtaMing. His favorite player is Yao, but his team is the Warriors. Is this allowed? How do you guys feel about it?

Jamal Crawford and Stephen Jackson are some pair of backcourt mates: Jamal's Warriors numbers: 20.6 pts on 38% FG and 32% 3-pt while shooting 7 3-ptrs per game. Jack comes in with some of the worst offensive numbers I have ever seen. 20.6 pts on 39% FG and 28% 3-pt while 6 3-ptrs a game. Oh wait, those are as bad as Jamal's.
Not to rip on guys I don't know and not to stroke Powell, but... I took a look at the live blog for the Nuggets game at ProjectSpurs and......Powell's right, in my opinion.
Recap: Stampler. I want the mega-recap. Games 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 and this one. I have laid down the gauntlet. Step up or Hipuks and I are going to codependency counseling.
