Christmas is still two weeks away, but the Spurs gave their fans two early gifts last week: wins over Dallas and Utah without Tim Duncan in uniform. The gifts don’t stop there. With 20 games in the can, the Spurs are off to a franchise-best start and lead the Western Conference. Early on, we were debating whether the Spurs would win more than 55 games. Now they’re on their way…

Geez, it’s been a long time since I’ve recapped a game, if you would call it that. Michael coaxed me out of semi-retirement and asked me to handle the duties for Game 18, and, following his lead, I’m only four days late. So here goes nothing. Game 18: Spurs 100, Trailblazers 79 Tim Duncan was injured. (But not seriously, thank god.) Robert Horry made his season debut. The Spurs won….

Just a tiny winy itty bitty recap of only the neatest game ever.

It’s all a click away!

Game 16: Spurs 109, Wizards 94 Greetings to all my peeps around the world. Yesterday I got a chance to experience something altogether new, a real life NBA game not involving our San Antonio Spurs. Manolis and I took in a contest between my second and third favorite clubs, the Houston Rockets and our hometown Warriors. The verdict from the cheap seats? I’m not nearly as much of a fan…

They announced the qualification groups for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa last Sunday (let me ruin the suspense for you now, Brazil is gonna win it – in fact they’ll win the next two) and Manolis and I got whole new fresh batch…

I am incapable of writing brief recaps.

I’m glad that the powers that be at the NBA pulled their collective head out and moved Tim Duncan from center to forward, back where he belongs on the all-star ballot. In all likelihood, Timmie should get his ninth consecutive start. Like Pop said: “It’s great that they did that, though, it makes total sense and we’re thrilled that they made that change. That’s what he’s been, he’s been that…

Game 12: Spurs 128, Magic 110 First, quick bit of business. Just in case you care (and odds are strong that you don’t) here is the relevant Youtube soccer clip. Okay there, I won’t mention EURO 2008 again until the group draws are announced on December 2, I promise. Sorry it’s taken so long for me to post about what was unquestionably our most fun to watch game of the…
