I should be there.  RSVP'd a little bit back.  Looks to be a good event.

BTW, where have you been homey?

Been busy...once we hit the home stretch for Harvard I'll be on more often.

13 inches seems huge to lug around daily. . .

Take it from someone who knows, it's not so bad  ;D  :D  ;D

I'll take this opportunity to re-affirm that my Pistons will be back next year.  Joe D, unlike his former backcourt mate, is the best GM in the league and I have total faith that he'll get us back on track.

BTW, used to be a Knicks fan too, from the John Starks era to a couple of seasons before the end of the Spreewell era (still have my Spreewell jersey).  Loved those Heat-Knicks series, it was eastern conference basketball at it's best.

Have to respectfully disagree with you on this one.  They have a well-run organization over there but I'm putting it out there and predicting another dynasty - Heat back to back to back... Yeah, I think a lot of people were Knicks fans back in those days (including myself).  It all ended for me when Miller scored 8 points in like 10 seconds...then Ewing missed a wide open lay-up with no time left on the heart just couldn't take another season with them after that.

The Pistons are good but they need to find new ways to win.  It won't be a foregone conclusion that they will be the Eastern Conference champs next year.

Unfortunately it's no longer a foregone conclusion.  They really fell apart in the playoffs this year.  It was like watching a completely different team fromt he one they had in the regular season.  However, they're still the best team in the league when they play like they can. 

My offseason plan would go like this:

1) Fire Flip (just not playoff coach)
2) Bring in Bill Laimbeer (does play by play for them and I'm sure he'd be a great coach)
3) Trade Sheed (love him when he shows up, but that only happens every other game, plus he has a huge contract)
4) Sign Jalen Rose and another scorer off the bench (we have no bench)

I'm gonna have to get an internet feed to watch the games at Havad next year.

The Argentine coach screwed up by taking out his 2 best players when he was only up a goal IMO.  Gotta wonder if the shootout would have went differently if Crespo and Riquelme were taking part.

Lehman looked awesome in the penalty shoot-out.  Guessed right everytime and almost saved every single attempt (actually saving 2).
