Call me the eternal optimist.

Well folks another one for the "L" column. But I don’t mind telling you, I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a game more in which the Spurs didn’t win. Don’t get me wrong, I would always prefer the win but at least it was fun to watch. Now, don’t mistake fun for pretty. Because this was not a pretty game, but it was pretty ugly. Although ugly, it was also like watching a Rocky movie. Instead of rooting on Sylvester Stallone, I was cheering on the silver and black. Rocky always gets knocked around in the beginning but you know he is going to jump up like Popeye after a can of spinach and knock out (insert opponent here) for the ten count. Well the good guys had me on the edge of my seat. Spurs made a couple of stops, but then they just couldn’t quite finish it off. The good thing is they didn’t leave you with the impression that they couldn’t, they just were not in sync. They fought back from seventeen down to make it a one-possession game. They did all that with little offense. They got their butts kicked on the boards early, but seemed to get better in the second half. The BEAST WAS BACK!!! Blair plays like he is a lot bigger than he is with very few minutes. Just imagine if he were a seven footer. He is fun to watch. Yes, call me the eternal optimist, but I’m already looking forward to our next tip-off. Don’t you worry about TP. That ankle will be just fine. Besides it gives Pop another chance to tweak his ever evolving starting five. Outside of Tim, with Tony out, nobody is safe. Although, everyone wants their minutes, I don’t see any big egos playing for the good guys, so that won’t be a problem.
