Thank you Mavericks!!!

I would like to take a sports moment to thank the Mavs whom I've been a fan of for twenty years now for finally looking like a championship caliber team. I've had confidence in them for years and even had a bet riding on the outcome of this play-off series. About five or six weeks ago I made a bet with my boss that if the Mavs won he would take me out for lunch at my favorite Chinese restaurant. It is a place that he and my coworker turn their noses up at because it doesn't look very impressive, but the food their is really good. If the Mavs lost though I would have to eat lunch at Burger King. This is an exceptionally cruel bet for as many people know the House of Dagromm has had an ongoing feud with the Burger King for over five years now. I have not eaten their since then. I don't let my kids eat there. I don't allow people into my house or office with food from there. I won't even accept free food from there and those who know me that there is little I love more than free food. The office was ready for the Mavs to lose and had intended to take pictures of me eating there with a crown on top of my head, but for once the Mavs pulled through and didn't let me down. I spit upon you Burger King and your poor service. I have once again bested you and will continue to do so. A pox upon your kingdom!

Dang! I'm actually going to have to watch the game tonight.

Are we hoping Steve Nash gets the elbow?

Dagromm said...

Heck yeah!!! Boo Little Man! Boo Little Man! And I hope Jason Terry punches Raja (didn't get hugged enough as a kid) Bell.

I am writing this in protest to the NBA. If everyone says that the last series was like the finals why does Dallas have to play the Suns and risk injury for what is apparently an exhibition series. David Stern has done so much for the Association and yet he continues to baffle me.

Dagromm said...

I agree!!! I've already blown my basketball wad on the city of San Antonio. I'm spent.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

An old man like you blows his wad that quickly? That's a shame. No wonder your wife wants me to come visit.

How many steps was Diaw allowed to take on that shot with .5 sec to go?

Good catch Gyuss. Diaw did a little shuffling that could've/should've been called. The Mavs also should have mugged him with less than a second to go. The protective cover has been lifted on the panic button, but it has not yet been pressed.
