What kind of jerkoff boss makes his employees work on New Years Eve? I mean, come on! After Victoria’s Day, April 20th, Lost’s season premiere, and my birthday, NYE is right up there with the holiest of holidays. And except for waiters, bar staff, public transport workers, cab drivers, police, firefighters, emergency workers, telephone operators,… Read more »
I don’t know why you’re smilin’… Wearing a bandaid over his eye last night, Yao Ming more than resembled virtual boxing great/eyebrow-dancing enthusiast Piston Honda after three tough rounds in the ring. Yao Honda (Mitsubishi Samsung berka berka jihad) delivered a KO late in the fourth round to defeat the Toronto Li’l Macs. We floated… Read more »
2535 The number of days since we last won in San Antonio (as of Dec. 28th, 2007). Current number of days since we last won in San Antonio: 0 Poker players are taught not to compound mistakes. Apparently Tony Parker is NOT a poker player. Peppy Le Peu and Duncan combined for 12 turnovers (Raps… Read more »
Spurs Spurs Spurs Spurs! (dun dun dun dun dun dun) Spurs Spurs Spurs Spurs! So we crawl out from under our collective holiday hangovers for the basketball equivalent of David vs. Goliath, only if David was an Afro Spanish/Slovenian half-giant with mini dreads. Nobody likes playing against San Antonio, let alone IN Texas, three days… Read more »
It’s gut check time, homeys. We could/should be 3-1 on this road trip, but as it stands those numbers are flipped. Now we’re off until the 28th and it’s time to reflect. At this point in the season, the only thing consistent has been our inconsistency. And yes Chuck, “Phoenix is tough to stop.” But that doesn’t… Read more »
Forgive me loyal reader for taking a week long break. I regret to inform my Gooner brethren that I will not be providing highlights for this week’s Premier League fixtures at Portsmouth and Everton but I am sure The Arsenal will prevail. Footy Tube does end up having them eventually but of course they’re simply… Read more »
Toronto Raptors 103, Phoenix Suns 122 I can deal with this loss because I wasn’t expecting us to win, if we can’t beat Seattle we definitely won’t be able to beat Phoenix the day after. That would be like finishing Drake’s Fortune on the Hard level right after you got your ass handed to you… Read more »
…and still not over it. The Sonics? THE SONICS?!? Man, glad I only got to watch snippets of that one. Stupid sexy Sonics. They’re officially off my ‘feel bad for them because they’re doomed’ list (is it lonely being alone Minnesota?). Fortunately, they’re still on my ‘feel bad for them because they employ Chris Wilcox… Read more »
Toronto Raptors 115, Seattle Sonics We lose the one fucking game that everybody thought we could win on this roadtrip. The Sonics who are 12 games under .500 and one of the worst teams in the NBA look like the ’85-86 Boston Celtics and punish the Raptors for a 123-115 win. Yeah, that’s right, they… Read more »
I hope that there is a coach here that can explain this:
Mid way through the first quarter and well into the second when you’re down double digits and you bring in Vaz and company and start the 3 guard set the team passed the ball a million times and guess what happened? Well you seen the game I don’t have to explain.
Then Casey starts the second half with his iso Lou game , now remember during the run in the first half Lou had about 4 assists, he was playing a hell of a game.
You could see as soon as Vaz came in (second half) what Casey’s plan was, give the ball to Lou (you know that little bounce pass is the sign..lol..) and then everybody put their finger up their respective rears because the play is the iso Casey extravaganza AND believe me I don’t blame Lou for this!
This all Casey’s master plan that busted right on his face in about 5 minutes, the team went from 58-53 deficit to a 71-56 one. Lou bricked four and a turn over, AGAIN I don’t blame Lou entirely for this, the guys were playing so well for a quarter and a half, Lou was driving and give it up and the other guys were making the shots they really looked like a good unit.
Then Casey changes the PROGRAM! I just don’t get this guys !
Oh well, something got to change here this is a little more then a slump. Hey Casey maybe that passing thing is ok, it may work! Actually it worked for the end of the first and the full second. I bet there were more passes on that second quarter than the whole game.
