This is probably going to get me in trouble, but bring on whoever!

I know this is a little late, but I just couldn't let this one go...

So I'm watching Game Seven of the Cavs-Celtics series on Sunday afternoon, and it's halftime, which means it's time for ESPN's halftime studio show, which is always a whole lot of nothing. Anyway, heading into a commercial, Stuart Scott announces that when they return, they'll be interviewing Chauncey Billups -- whose Pistons had already made it to the Eastern Conference Finals. Said Scott -- and this is not verbatim, but pretty darn close -- You're NOT going to want to miss what Chauncey Billups has to say about who he wants to face in the next round!

Aaaaaand we're back. After a few awkward minutes of Stuart Scott kissing Chauncey Billups' ass, the question is posed. Cavs or Celtics? This, mind you, is what I did NOT want to miss. Says Chauncey Billups:

Honestly? It doesn't matter either way.

Awesome.

Just found your blog (doing a Google search for George's comeback to Jerry saying that "they usually give [sportscaster] jobs to former ballplayers and, you know, broadcasters."
(You didn't post George's response. Curses!)

Anyway, I've been bored and undermotivated at work, and looks like I've found a new favorite blog.

Kudos.

Tom, hey, thanks for checking out the blog, and for the kind words! Also, if I remember correctly, George's response was, "Well that's not very fair." Or something like that. Anyway, thanks again!

Yeah, surfing the Internets is not really okay at work, so I basically cut-and-pasted 20 pages worth of your blog into Word and printed it out.
I'm reading it -- very studiously -- at my desk now.
Good stuff.
