yet another trick

the wolves won tonight, in what those who write cheesedog sports stories would call a barn burner.

speaking of the worlves, i stunned a friend thursday night. it was sort of nice. just when i think that i have no more tricks up my sleeve, no more new things, one comes up that i forgot i had.

he asked me what i wanted to do that night.
“watch the timberwolves,” i said.

yeah. i know. i’m not an athletic supporter by any stretch of the imagination. but i do like the NBA playoffs. i’ve watched them most every year since i was 19. i could careless about the superbowl, the world series and the stanley cup playoffs– but for some reason i have a vested intrest in the NBA playoffs– even when the wolves aren’t in it.

i mean, really, what’s not to love? tall, tall sweaty men running around in shorts? c’mon, i’m only human.

of course he thought i was totally posing– about this sudden interest. but really, i’ve followed the wolves all season mostly because i’m in love with Fred Hoiberg and Wally Szczerbiak (who was injured a lot this season). and by following i mean, reading about them in the paper and listening about them on the radio (i’m still not watching tv, though i fell off the wagon in a bad way thursday night but more about that later). so yeah he thought i was a poser.

“can you even name three players besides Kevin Garnett?”
“fred hoiberg, wally szczerbiak, latrell spreewell, sam cassell,” i said.

i will never forget the look on his face. it’s so nice to now that i can still surprise people. see? i do contain multitudes.

Everything the light touches is my kingdom. Well, at least where this website is concerned. There's an about me section if you are so inclined to know things. All the posts were written by me. I have a lot of words.
