    I'm so going to do one of these now...
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    So many excellent choices...
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Someone should 'fess up to the Wreck on the Highway vote.

    Contrary to what you're all thinking, it wasn't me.

    I picked 'Don't Look Back'

    I think they shouldn't waste any energy looking back on what happened last season as long as they learned a lesson from it, and also shouldn't look back now that they're finally moving on without relying on Reggie to bail them out.

    Mansion on the Hill

    At night my daddy'd take me and we'd ride
    Through the streets of a town so silent and still
    Park on a back road along the highway side
    Look up at that mansion on the hill

    There ain't no storybook story

    Baby I'm countin' on a miracle

    There's a code of silence that we don't dare speak
    There's a wall between us and the river's deep
    We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
    But there's a code of silence and it can't go on

    Is the truth so elusive, so elusive you see
    that it ain't enough baby
    To bridge the distance between you and me
    There's a list of grievance 10 miles long
    There's a code of silence and it can't go on

    Well you walk with your eyes open
    But your lips they remain sealed
    While the promises we made are broken
    Beneath the truth we fear to reveal
    Now I need to know now darlin'
    I need to know what's goin' on so c'mon c'mon c'mon....

    There's a code of silence that we don't dare speak
    There's a wall between and the river's deep
    We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
    But there's a code of silence and it can't go on

    I listened to Code of Silence as I walked home for the train at 10:30pm. I'm going to have to leave the office much earlier if I ever want to see another basketball game.

    How's this for butchering a Springsteen lyric:

    ++++++++

    Rick Carlisle was a cautious man of the road
    He walked lookin' over his shoulder and remained faithful to its code
    When something caught his eye he'd measure his need
    And then very carefully he'd proceed

    Rick met a young rookie in the early days of September
    It was there in her arms he let his cautiousness slip away
    In their lovers twilight as the evening sky grew dim
    He'd lay back in her arms and laugh at what had happened to him

    On his right hand Rick tattooed the word team and on his left hand was the word defense
    And in which hand he held his fate was never clear
    Come Indiana winter he took his young lover for his bride
    And with his own hands built a great fieldhouse down by the riverside

    Now Rick was an honest man he wanted to do what was right
    He worked hard to fill their lives with happy days and basketball at night
    Alone on his knees in the darkness for steadiness he'd pray
    For he knew in a restless heart the seed of betrayal lay

    One night Rick awoke from a terrible dream callin' his rookie's name
    She lay breathing beside him in a peaceful sleep, a thousand miles away
    He got dressed in the moonlight and down to the highway he strode
    When he got there he didn't find nothing but road

    Rick felt a coldness rise up inside him that he couldn't name
    Just as the words tattooed 'cross his knuckles he knew would always remain
    At their bedside he brushed the hair from his wife's face as the moon shone on her skin so white
    Filling their room with the beauty of God's fallen light
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Uh....poor?........... ............

    Warning - this is a parody......No ill will is meant toward any player.......

    Seen a man standin' over a Pistons fan at the Palace in the stands
    He's lookin' down kinda puzzled pokin' that fan with his fist
    Got his jersey soaked with beer, he's standing up in Section 31
    Like if he fought there long enough that fan'd get up and run
    Struck me kinda funny seem kinda funny sir to me
    Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

    Now Unclebuck loved Ronnie with a love mean and true
    He said "Ronnie I'll watch you play every day and write good posts about you"
    One day Ron up and left him and ever since that
    He waits down at the end of that baseline for young Ronnie to come back
    Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
    How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

    Take Jonny to the doctor, Dan Dyrek they called him
    Rub him on the knees, take away little Jonny's pain
    On a whitewashed new court, Scot Pollard hurts his left leg
    They take him to the locker room and over him they pray
    Lord won't you tell us tell us what does it mean
    Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

    The team all gathers down at the airport.
    Carlisle stands with his whiteboard, Bird stands watchin' from the side
    The plane's all gone, the sun sets behind a weepin' willow tree
    Bird stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly
    Wonderin' where can his Ronnie be
    Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe
