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…

Maybe my most irresponsible column ever.

Game 14: Spurs 116, Supersonics 101 Yes, I know, I know I said I wouldn’t mention soccer anymore until next week, but this is insane. 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…

Spurs/Hawks and more soccer analysis than you can handle. You pussy.

Game 10: Spurs 90, Rockets 84 Ohmygodohmygodohmygod. We won. When it looked like all hope was lost and we would choke once again, we won. I didn’t think it was possible, the team was looking so meek and soft for so long. I was left playing a game of 20 Questions to myself like a crazy person for an hour afterward, “We won. How’d we win? Is the score a…

I like to see former Spurs succeed when they leave San Antonio, whether its a player like Stephen Jackson, an assistant coach like Mike Brown, or a front office wunderkind like Sam Presti. I always thought that Beno Udrih deserved more playing time than the Spurs could afford to give him. After a promising first season in 2004-2005, Beno saw his minutes drop dramatically, playing third fiddle to Nick Van…

You’ll never guess who I’m mad at.
