I was at the game last night. Despite the loss, it was very fun. Nice to have a packed house at the ACC. Some dude right behind me had a Rupaul sign that was classic.
Sitting beside me were 2 drunk banker chicks that clearly didn't know much about hoops, BUT, clearly loved the Raptors and being there.
It's amazing what you can learn when overhearing basketball 'outsiders' make honest comments about the game. Here is the highlight reel:
"That Bosh is skinny now!"
"Our guy, what's his name, Bargainey, he is making points everywhere!"
"Why does that Jose not pass the ball"
"That guy, #8, he can't score at all, why doesn't he pass the ball"
"This is pathetic, every time we get the ball we make some dumb mistake"
"Why do those refs call every foul on us but the Heat is hitting us like crazy"
"Uggghhh....we suck...we were doing so good then we stop giving the ball to our guys that are scoring it"
On Lebron "he is amazing"
On Wade "he is amazing"
"What is the crowd saying? Rupaul? What's that?"
To me, that sums it up. Bargnani kills it. Bosh was good but IS skinny now. Lebron and Wade are amazing. Jose dropped an egg and put on his best TJ Ford impersonation. The refs were reminding the fans they get paid to pander to the celeb players.
PS- Big props to the ACC media crew who played Rupauls "cover girl" song during one of the timeouts, that was classic, although i think only 1/3 of the crowd "got it"
