Game Thread # 56 -- vs. Dallas

I'm looking forward to this game for the following reasons:

  1. It's on TNT. This means people in Austin will actually be able to watch the game!
  2. It's on TNT. This means we'll get to hear Charles Barkley talk about Manu Ginobili. Speaking of, even though it's years old, I had never seen this clip until recently. Magic's bit at the end is my favorite:
"Who you seen dunk like this man right here?... on somebody."

  1. It's a big game against a team easy to dislike. We're 1 game up on the Mavs and the season series is tied 1-1.
  2. Jason Kidd vs. Tony Parker. Tony should shred him despite Kidd being extra-motivated given Tony's comments on the trade:
"To be honest with you, I'm really happy for that trade. Diop was doing a good job on us. And Devin Harris, most of the time, he played good against us. So I thought it would be good for us. No disrespect to Jason Kidd, he's a great point guard, but those guys that left always gave us trouble."

"No disrespect to Jason Kidd, but he sucks balls."

5. Manu Ginobili on national television. Here's his chance to unveil his true eroticism to the world. I'm betting he plays the game in a negligee.

In celebration of this momentous occasion I will be live blogging the game. Which just means I'll be watching live and posting a bunch of comments (in this here thread). Feel free to join in everybody. You too, stampler!
