So I guess JO isnt going to woosie out tonight because of his little head cold?

I voted for Marcus, but I think Chucky should be an option too, especially after all that smacktalk. [edit] woops, I didn't see him on there, I see him now.

Really though, unless the Celts can get Tony Parker to come play for them tonight, they don't have a chance.

I do now know what a sinus infection is, thanks to able :D , and it is not a headache. JO is the man if he is going to play with that. Every step you take is like a bulldozer is taking you from the back

A sinus infection could make you :puke: on the court. I don't think I wanna see that.

Yeah a Head Cold is light compared to a sinus infection , you can get over the counter meds for a head cold , sinus infection you can't as it's a bacterial infection which can spead quickly like wildfire to other parts of your body.

Like I said in a previous thread I had a sinus infection once that put me in the hospital , my face was so swollen up that my eyes swelled shut , I looked like I just went 15 rounds with mike tyson , this happened over night btw , so it can spead very quick if not treated quickly

PaceBalls
04-23-2004, 06:35 PM
bah, I have had a sinus infection before. As long as snot isnt flying out of his nose on other players there shouldn't be any prob. There are thousands of over the counter pills for these things. People everyday go to work with a little head cold, and I'll be pissed if he aint playing.

I seriously doubt JO has as severe a sinus infection as you did Sauce... That is the extreme of sinus infections.
Here is what I really think happened. JO is chillin out with his fiance enjoying life and she starts telling him to take a day off and go to brown county for a romantic afternoon or something. So he called in sick like any young person in love would on a spring day.

I don't think so. He's involved with someone else. Honest, I saw it on TV and Larry Bird was the Dad.

Halftime Observations:

1) Pacers look incredible
2) Indiana Jones swatting Pierce's layup from the weak side play of the game
3) If Harrington could make a free throw he'd be near 20 at the half
4) Reggie grows older every playoff season - hopefully he'll come through when needed this playoffs
5) Artest has obliterated Pierce down on both ends. I actually don't think Pierce has scored any points on Artest

Bring on the Heat

And one more thing. Why even take Bender out of the game? The kid's an assassin. The Skinny Assassin. Teams have no chance when he gets going. That block he made on some Celtic scrub was painful. He practically slammed in to the floor with his elbow. Not sure how many minutes he's played, but I bet he's averaging a point a minute. The Pacers made a huge run when he was in. Went something like up 5 to up 20, then back down to 12 or 13 after he left. That's like a 20 point difference. Not just him, but he is the Skinny Assassin.

Great win. Though kind of worried about our starting unit they don't seem to be doing too well together. Hoping for a big game from them next game(mainly Reggie and Tinsley) hopefully as we finish this series off give them some confidence going into the next one.
