Damn, what a game...

I'm gonna talk basketball for a bit but for those who are wondering.... Yeah, I had a great weekend. There'll be stories about the trip to Cedar Key and The Curse of the Cardboard Cowgirl to come this week but first, basketball.

I need to give a shout out to my Miami Heat. Now, it's been a while since I've really paid attention, probably a few years; long enough anyway to say that last week I could only name two current players, Shaq and Zo. There used to be a day when I knew everybody and their stats, but hey, I got a life. I went to the first ever Miami Heat game, opening night 1988 and every opening night for the next 5 or 6 years and averaged about 12 games a year (all I could afford). I was a big time fan, times change.

When we got Pat Riley as a coach the first time around I was estatic, with Pat we had to win a championship, WRONG. But now, Pat is back and my beloved, though largely ignored Miami Heat are in their first NBA Championship match. After an overtime win last night they are up one game and only need one more victory to take the trophy.

So yeah, maybe I am jumping on the bandwagon here a little bit, but, I still have my tuxedo T shirt they gave me opening night nearly 18 years ago - I got this one coming. Side note, in 1992 or 93 my company installed the basketball equipment at the Heat practice facility in Hialeah, Florida. I was so damned excited to do that job I about did it for free. I do have pics of that and maybe I'll put them up this week too, just for old times sake.
