And no, I am not referring to Kim’s showing at this week’s Moo Meetup. We’re talking about being swept up in the swell of Warriors excitement here in the Bay Area. Admittedly, I tend to favor college basketball and my beloved Jayhawks but it is hard not to get excited with quips like this from ESPN’s Page 2 in their coverage of the Mavs series:
Reason No. 132 why I love this series: It’s not often that you can follow a series, then midway through it, have to call one of your friends just to ask, “Hey, is it just me or did Matt Barnes add a new tattoo on his neck for this game?”
Reason No. 133 why I love this series: The winning coach showing up for his Game 4 news conference holding a can of Bud Light.
Or this track from the Trackrunners: “It’s the Warriors … Come out and Playyyyy.” Or hearing of morning commuters on BART chanting “Let’s Go Warr-iors.”
And for those of you who have written off the Warriors in this series let’s not forget the Jazz were down 0-2 in their series with the Rockets.
Game 3 tonight in Oakland … Go Warriors!
