As we continue to wait, I went to Big 5 sports yesterday to pick up some new baseballs. When I walked past their usual weekly shoe sale, I noticed something strange. Amid the white K-Swiss & Vision Street Wear basketball shoes, I noticed a pile of "#8" shoes in white with purple & gold trim. There must have been 30 pairs. I picked one up (using a pair of camping tongs), & noticed that they were originally $129.00 - then $89.99 - 49.00 - 29.00 - finally, 19.99.  Now I'm not saying anything about that other team here, but it did put a smile on this face when I asked where the Clipper hats were. "Sold out man." Yep... completely sold out of clippers anything.

Now, I might have built the ClipperBlog.com website with Kevin & John, but this is my first post. I feel compelled to share that I've never been so excited for a game... Even with conspiracy theories & all. Tonight is epic... Either way I see it like this:

1. The beginning of a new Los Angeles Basketball dynasty. One based on teamwork & a whole lot of heart.

I like those odds.

See you here after the game.

Gotta love this new dawn.

 

BTW - I found this image on an old colleague's site - "BuzzNet ". I just had to post it. Thanks Marc Brown for creating the best photo blog site out there.
