I’m out of hiding. With nothing original to say.
The NBA Playoffs are finally in progress allowing EVERY part of EVERY game to be over-analyzed in EVERY way.
The extra days between games not only gives rest to the players, but also results in an overambitious panel of journalists and bloggers to view each individual game like it was the only event of the century.
Every win seems like that team is bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy, and every loss is the end of the world.
And I love it.
I can troll around the internet reading every article I can find about the Los Angeles Lakers following a win.
When the Lakers drop a game, I’ll continue to read about the Lakers, but I’ll be able to turn to how the Portland Trail Blazers, Boston Celtics, or any of those hated teams in Los Angeles have struggled or lost as a consolation.
If one of those rare nights when the Lakers lose and everyone wins happens, the usual routine of Jack Bauer on the DVR will be the perfect remedy.
Time to refresh the Google Reader.
