Where the hell have you been, Dingo? In Hawai’i, actually. Thanks for asking. The waves on Oahu’s North Shore were perfect for the Rip Curl Pro Pipeline Masters. And I was fortunate to see U2 and Pearl Jam at Aloha Stadium the night before the Honolulu Marathon, which I decided not to run this year. Maybe in 2007. So what did I miss? Lots, it appears. The Spurs have gone…

Game 22 @ Los Angeles Clippers: Spurs 103, Clippers 81 Oooh, neat. For the second time this season I get to bust out my Duncan-Bears pic.Okay, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that I believe we’ve established that we match up pretty well with the Clippers. How is it possible that we play a supposedly contending team twice in four games and rout them in almost identical…

Urbane philosopher Tasty Taste once wrote (in the epic poem Granny Said Kick Yo Ass) : “I’m gonna kick yo’ ass”“That was just a good old-fashioned butt whuppin’,” Clippers point guard Sam Cassell said. “Like your grandma used to give you when you messed up and you knew you were going to get it.“ (Coach Don Nelson of the Warriors described their 129-89 loss as “an ass-kicking,” as we reported)…

Game 20 Vs. Los Angeles Clippers: Spurs 111, Clippers 82 Well, that was anti-climatic. Silly me, I thought the Clips would actually give us a game. Oops. Right now we’re just crushing everybody. In fact, our last three games have all been pretty one sided. It’s almost as if we added something to our arsenal, starting with the Warriors game that we hadn’t had before when we were slumping… Eh,…

Game 19 vs. Charlotte: Spurs 96, Bobcats 76Record: 14-5 Streak: W-3 The Spurs beat the Bobcats on Tuesday, thanks in part to another night of great free throw shooting (really?) and another poor outing by the love child of Larry Bird and Jack White. [Just to be clear, I have all the respect in the world for Bird and White, I just thought the line was funny enough to bear…

Game 18 vs. Golden State: Spurs 129, Warriors 89 Wowzers. That’s more like it. Running, ball movement, not too many careless turnovers, and most importantly, the ball going IN the basket. It’s important to not put too much stock into a runaway like this because let’s face it, we played about as well as we can possibly play against a miserable defensive team. Is it an encouraging sign? Absolutely. But…

Following the Spurs 129-89 point dismantling of the Golden State Warriors (much due for their comeuppance with the SpursDynasty crew in the gym in Oakland) … “The way I look at it,” Nelson said, “it was an ass kicking. We got it. They gave it. End of story.”

“It was an ugly win and we’ll take it. But we definitely need to go back (and) do some more practice and try to play better.”–Tony Parker Game 17 vs. Sacramento: Spurs 100, Kings 98Record: 12-5 Streak: W-1 Ugly? 18 Spurs turnovers. Five of them by Parker. Ugly? Kevin “Pretty Boy” Martin scoring 30 and all five Kings’ starters scoring in double digits. Ugly? Bruce Bowen scoring 23 points, shooting…

Game 16 @ Utah, Jazz 83, Spurs 75I don’t know about y’all, but I could hear that gynormous sucking sound at Utah all the way from my apartment in San Diego. And for once, it wasn’t the self-esteemless Ho-bags onBig Love. Okay, so the fourth girl isn’t technically one of the Ho-bags. She’s Amanda Seyfried and she plays the oldest daughter on the show. I just included her because she…
