Basket Case

Yes, over the weekend we went to a basketball game. A professional one.

Well....professional should be in quotes. It was the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavs, post-LeBron. The Cavs, who just a few weeks earlier finally broke their record losing streak. I think it was 23 games in a row. Pathetic. Oh, it wasn't just their record losing streak, it was for the entire NBA - ever!

I'll be honest, Denton got the tix through work. Good seats, as you can kind of see, but it means nothing to me. I don't care for basketball. I don't follow it per se. I certainly no none of the players.

Still, it's good for us to do some different stuff - and we did. We ate some crappy carbs. I took in the sights - the good, the bad, the ugly and the slutty (the cheerleaders).

We watched ourselves go from a nice lead in the first quarter to our eventual decline and loss. To be fair, we didn't stay for the loss, we left at the beginning of the third quarter. I just can't commit to the sport or the team. And let's face it, the Oscar pre-show was on, what is a homo to do?

I mean, it's not like it is baseball.

That all said, finally - FINALLY - someone went out and captured this as not just a phrase.

What took someone so long?

"...eventual decline and loss" Inevitable is more like it.
