"They're winning against losers." "Everyone they play is hurt." "They really won't be tested until Boston and LA." "Yeah they're winning but they're doing so against inferior competition." "She's a troubled artist."
Sorry, the picture of little Ms. Heroin Pincushion got me distracted on the last one.
Yours truly was not able to watch the game last night. You see, I paid for League Pass Broadband but the game was blacked out even though I live out of Channel 45's range (and a mile from Papa Glen's house), have no cable (it's the devil), and am 80+ miles from the arena. Since the game was Wolves/Bucks, not even overseas pirates were going to put the game on line. I was all set to go watch the tilt at the gym when I remembered that we have some friends coming over this weekend and I promised them I'd cook them some Onglet Gascon with homemade French Fries and that I had no demi glace in the freezer. Thankfully, I had a few veal bones in the deep freeze and I was able to boil up a nice veal stock and this morning I'm bringing the whole thing down in a pot of shallots and red wine reduction. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to skimp on the presentation because I can't seem to find a good veal bone with enough marrow to serve as an appetizer that will, with the fries, soak up all the juices when I serve the steak.
My god, I need to shower after writing that. Although, after reading it a second time, I think I have a future as a NY Times conservative columnist.
Bottom line: Wolves are putting food on their fans' plates and I was unable to watch the game. It can't all be gourmet and I may have to catch a few contests on the radio. What did you guys think of the tilt? Did anything stick out? You can leave your observations in the comments or in a FanPost. Your help would be much appreciated.
You can read a Bucks' fan's take over at Brew Hoop. Weirdly enough he is rocking a 1st/3rd world thing this morning as well:
The Wolves feasted on a thin Milwaukee club plagued by a talent famine at the Bradley Center. Short on star players, short on scoring options, even short on layups, the Bucks fell short to Minnesota, 90-83.
I think saying a professional sports team is starving with a talent famine qualifies as a First World Problem.
