Just when Detroit was helping me get over Calgary losing the Cup to Tampa Bay, the Pistons throw it all away in game 2.
All that was needed was a simple arm slap of a foul and I can't stand the Lakers. Ugh. With three games in Detroit, I figure it will be 3-2 in Detroit's favor going back to LA for game six.
Red Sox come to play the Rockies next week. I will be in the right-field box--best seats for $14--hopefully, for all three games. Alas, I am but a poor doctoral candidate studying for his comps...
I am already in hockey withdrawal. And still cannot believe that the Cup will spend a year in Florida--in Tampa! awful...not the team...Tampa itself. I did see quite a few punk shows there in my youth--kids swinging steel-toes first from greased poles into the foreheads of gnarlied-virgin 7seconds fans. Orlando, Tampa/St Pete, Gainsville: 88-90. What chunky memories.
