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.

Game 8: Spurs 107, Lakers 92 Man do I feel silly right now. Not as silly as say, Phil Jackson maybe, but I really thought this would be a competitive ball game. This team gave us all kinds of match-up problems last year and we were incredibly fortunate to even eek out one game against them and on paper I don’t really understand why things should be any different last…

I hereby take back most of the awful things I’ve said about Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, both publicly and in private. Why? I’ll give you a hint: it involves Bill O’Reilly and “Redacted,” the new film by Brian De Palma. You’ll have to watch this video from Countdown with Keith Olbermann to see for yourself.

I asked Michael to take the day off after writing four game recaps in as many days, but he declined. So this is not a game 8 recap. You can catch last night’s Spurs-Lakers highlights here, but the headline on Yahoo! Sports pretty much tells you everything you need to know: “Bowen outscores Kobe, Spurs beat Lakers.“ You gotta love Pop’s comment after the game: “[Bruce’s] effort tonight was no…
