Don't know why his stuff tends to get buried on the Pistons.com front page, but Dave Wieme takes a look around the playoffs in his latest blog entry. As usual, it's high quality stuff:
What’s the story with a 6:00 p.m. game during the week for Game Five of our series? Does TNT think we are on the West Coast? Just because the Wings are the Western Conference, don’t think the Pistons are on Pacific Time. Sorry about that, sports fans…but it looked like some of you were able to convince your bosses to let you go a little early to catch the game. Palace looked pretty full at tip-off tonight at 6:20. I guess we will find a little something for you, you know, for the effort. How about total consciousness on your deathbeds? Gunga…gunga…lagoonga…
Cleveland and Washington? Let ‘em play I say…beat each other up for seven games. Heck, why don’t we make their series best of nine? How about best of 11? Yeah, give us time to study either team AND get rested a bit. THAT’S a good idea…INSERT SARCASTIC ROLLING OF EYES AND PPPPSSSSSHHHHH NOISE FROM CURLED LIPS.
I tell you, I'm a fan of any writer who can work in a Caddyshack reference without skipping a beat.
