Dallas Mavericks to blame.
Heh. The Spurs are giving us a run for our money, that's for dang sure. As if Saturday's game wasn't bad enough, tonight's game went into overtime, with the Spurs and my Mavs volleying the lead back and forth the whole time. And to make matters worse, the game was on TNT tonight, which we don't get ('cause we only have basic cable), so we were listening on ESPN radio. Listening to a basketball game on the radio is a TOTALLY different experience from watching it on TV (which is a totally different experience from watching it in person). On the radio, you have to pay attention to every word, 'cause the action moves so fast. "There's Terry up the right, over to Stackhouse, bounces to Dirk, in and out, Howard got the board after Terry tipped it, Mavericks ball, Terry from the corner, swoosh! Dallas leads by two, here comes Finley (gotta keep reminding myself everytime, 'He's not a Maverick anymore'), up the middle, over to Van Exel (reminder: he's not a Mav anymore, either)" ..... AH! See how exhausting it can be?
We're 3 and 1 against the Spurs in this playoff series. I'm rooting for Phoenix to win theirs, 'cause how much FUN will it be to root for my boys against my old heartthrob Steve Nash? YOu think I'm developing high blood pressure now? You just wait until I have to decide between Dirk and Steve. That could likely induce heart failure.
MAN, I love NBA playoff time! :D
