What it is

Eastern Conference Champions, 2005:

Detroit Pistons

Final score: Detroit Pistons 88

Miami 82

It sure was a tough stretch, ain't nobody gonna argue with that. The truth of the matter is, with several injured players, all of them starters, the Miami Heat made the Pistons WORK for that title.

And the truth of the matter is, the Pistons still won.

At some point I began to question how 'fair' the matchup was. Of course the Miami Heat were going to work hard for that ticket to the Finals! And of course, the Heat are a great team -- they sure earned my respect. They certainly didn't make it to the E. Conference Finals by just sitting around lookin' pretty. But then I thought about how 'fair' it is to have Shaquille O'Neal on their team! He doesn't even have to friggin jump to make a basket, all he has to do is reach up over his head and drop it in. How fair is that??????? And one thing I keep hearing people say is how hard it is to officiate him. One of the announcers said in Game 6, "It's brutal the punishment [Ben Wallace] has to take from [Shaquille O'Neal]." That's *not* an exact quote, I wrote it down but I don't have the sheet with me. He's just so big -- and can I just say I've never SEEN a man sweat as much as Shaquille O'Neal. Man that guy can produce sweat!

Either way, the Pistons won, but I have to say honestly, as a relatively new fan of the Pistons (2002-2003 season to be exact, BEFORE they won the Championship, just for the record, and BEFORE Larry Brown became their coach), I really wonder if the Pistons still would have won if the Heat had been healthier. With Shaq AND Dwayne Wade both on the court together -- not to mention Alonzo Mourning, Eddie Jones and Udonis Haslem -- they were pretty intimidating.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go have a coronary now...

I tried sending you another txt msg this after noon and LJ said you had an invalid email attached to it. I'll try agian later. you might be able to txt me with my number 2393576600 but I do not have the internet service of Sprint PCS, Vision. So I may not get it. You're more than welcome to call as well. My phone sucks though. Everyone tells me that they cannot hear me half the time.

Hm. Interesting. I definitely did not receive any messages from you this afternoon. You know, I've noticed that if you have any spaces in the "Sender" field it will pop that message up. Like if you type two words with a space in-between, then it will tell you that there's something wrong with my email. I've told the good folks at LJ about it, and supposedly they're working on making it more user-friendly, but I'm sure it has to be fairly low on their list of priorities.

I had Sprint PCS once ... and I will never go back to them again! If that tells you anything, lol. :) Oo, it is very tempting to call you. However, I'm not that tempted to get into a phone conversation that I may or may not be able to hear. My sister's phone is the same way, and it drives me up a friggin wall. No offense; I'm sure you understand. :) Cell phones can be a blessing ... or a curse. ;)

On the other hand, if I get too impatient, when is a good time to call you? :) You can email me the answer if you like, I can't believe you posted your phone number in a public place like this!

"Czech republic"?!?! Say, while I'm thinking of it, is that a sunrise or sunset in your Bodie-con? And is it a Ft. Myers sunrise/set???

*sighs* ahhhhhhhhh.... I don't know if you've gotten the chance to yet, but if you get a second read my most recent entry. I was writing about the sunrise, among other things. It makes my nipples hard just thinking about it. ;)

I am such a damn prude, I'm going to rot in hell, lol.

It makes my nipples hard thinking about your hard nipples. Yes I read it, and replied. I am one step ahead of you.
