The Goods On The Game, Vol. 27, pre-game lowlights
Bet it's quiet around here tonight. Judging by the e-mails and comments that have arrived since the debacle in Oklahoma City, dozens of readers/writers are gone for the season. Just means more for you and the other diehards, right?
Last I heard from San Antonio and Jermaine O'Neal was about 45 minutes ago and he was going to try the shoulder in a warmup and then decide. You know, sort of like he did with the knee and the ankle a few times. So, I wish I had news for you, but I don't. But I do think if he does start, instead of running the first couple of plays for him in the post, they should script stuff for Bosh to see what he's got going on tonight.
Now, seated comfortably at Casa Smith with Super Son over on the couch watching with dad (mom's occupying the upstairs TV with Gilmore Girls DVDs and that's not a Super Son kind of thing), gotta run through the check list:
Clicker? Yep, Utah-Chicago's on, too.
Snacks? The two-bite brownies are in the cupboard just waiting..
Soft drinks? Chilled Diet Coke right there.
Low expectations? Oh yeah.
Be back in the first quarter sometime.
