Go, Spurs!


Congrats to the San Antonio Spurs for capturing the Western Conference Champeenship, and good luck in the Finals.

Frankly, I have no interest in basketball at all, at all. However, we used to go see the Spurs play back in the days of Gervin, Silas and Coach Doug Moe, so there's a certain nostalgic pleasure in seeing reading about them doing so well these days.

Do they still play the "Cotton-Eye Joe" at the home games?

They're still playing basketball?

Hell, they're still playing hockey.

Those were some wild teams with the Iceman. They'd get into some ridiculous shootouts with the Nuggets or Lakers, score 140 points, and lose. That was back when the West was all run ang gun teams, and the East was all bruising, half-court teams.

Those are my home town boys. We had season tickets from the time the franchise arrived in SA until... the season before they won the championship for the first time.

I didn't like the Alamodome anyway, so I really din't care. The old Hemisfair Arena was a GREAT venue for hoops. The new one? Not so much.

Still hope they win, of course.

Go Spurs!
