Tonight is a big basketball night for me. First off, there is of course the Bulls game against Detroit. Ben Wallace might be out, which I'm sure will bring a smile to Eddy Curry's face. Can they keep 'the streak' alive at 5? I hope so so I can continue to write cheesy sentences like the previous one.
And also tonight is the annual Braggin' Rights game between Illinois and Missouri. Like the game's sponsor, Busch Light, the game could be watered down due to Illinois superior talent (the Illini have won 4 straight). But also like Busch Light, the game will be delicious since the game will be attended by rabid fans on both sides and I would assume both teams will have similar energy. Maybe not such a competitive game though, I think Illinois will win by 20+.
Will the Bulls do the same? Along with a laptop under the Christmas tree that result is a fantasy. But....they could give em a game.
This will be my last post before the holidays, so I'll use it as another chance to sappily thank my readers. With the recent upturn in play by the Bulls I've noticed my web counters going up, which is a pretty good gift, albeit not laptop-good.
parting shot: someone send this headline to Jay Leno.
