We were going to refrain from discussing the Cavs-Pistons game tonight, both because we realize we’ve been a little LeBron/Cavs heavy lately, and also because we wanted to avoid the whole sticking the foot in the mouth scenario we can be prone to.
However, with our computer troubles (we’ve just been informed) now extended past today, we’re kind of at a loss. Much like cell phones have caused us to not know anyone’s phone number, FeedDemon has caused us to not know any URLs.
We did track down the Detroit Free Press, as we wanted to see how the locals were looking at tonight’s game, which is admittedly a bigger deal for Cleveland than for Detroit. We didn’t expect such harshness in what we found.
For the Cavaliers, who come to the Palace tonight, the biggest thrill has been met. More than anything, they just wanted to make the postseason.
Sure, they’d love to win a series or two, but after missing the playoffs since 1998, the owners of the East’s fourth seed can already call this season a success.
This isn’t March Madness, where a wide-eyed team can spoil it for a heavyweight in one magical game. This is a grind. This is the best of seven.
If Krista Latham wasn’t such a hot name, we’d probably have a thing or two to say about this, other than “Hey Krista – the Cavaliers are a professional basketball team, not a group of seventh-graders thrown together to be blessed by the presence of Detroit basketball.”
Since it is a hot name, we won’t say what we really want to, which is “Hey Krista – that wasn’t very nice, you mean person who is not being nice.” Harshness to counter harshness.
What you want to know is who’s going to win tonight, yes? We can’t tell you that, because our future-prediction-thing is on the other computer, with our Photoshop and everything else that makes this site readable.
(Cavs will win tonight – everyone watch on ESPN, then come and remind us that we were right.)
