ESPN had a neat little montage there...

What's the problem?

Are David's back spasms acting up or something? He hasn't seen a minute of action yet :(

Pacers not playing too badly to start out.

Gotta love B. Wallace getting booed every time he touches the ball though.

Raising the bar

I don't think Miller has stopped talking to the refs since the game has started. Man, hes having a great game but god stop lobbying a call every time down the court its becoming a joke.

Pacers need to start hitting their shots again - Detroit playing pretty good D. I know the starters have to get some rest, but that last lineup we had in there at the end of the 3rd was ugly.

And JO drinking a Red Bull on the sideline :laugh:

Okay...if this isnīt dedication, I donīt know what is.

I am in Costa Rica on vacation with my parents. I just found an internet cafe and am getting the live updates! No ESPN down here :(

The crowd was chanting "we want Ron" during the 2nd timeout for Jeff bleeding

Well damn if Freddie hadn't thrown that elbow we'd be 2 points closer...

Detroit outplayed us PERIOD
We clearly need Jackson at the very least, Bender would be a luxury (I guess), and Artest...well you know...
Good game. Merry Christmas Pistons

I'm starting to fill out the paperwork to join Ragnar's club regarding Anthony Johnson. I'm going to have it ready to turn in at a moment's notice in case I decide to become a full-fledged member.

I look forward to reading a game summary from someone. Iīve been without the Pacers in too long.

The only sport they show here in Costa Rica is soccer...ugh.

The paperwork is a formality in your case; welcome to the club :)

In case this has any bearing on my club status... I'd -much- prefer seeing Eddie Gill on the court at PG. In this case (IMHO) it isn't a case where a guy sitting on the bench has his 'fan value' go up.... Gill got plenty of minutes earlier this season and for the most part I liked what I saw for our backup PG.

Edit: That's Gill over Johnson, not Gill over Tinsley....

That made the paperwork unnecessary,

The only sport they show here in Costa Rica is soccer...ugh. Was wondering were you have been.
