It's been a long time since I posted. In fact, I have never posted much here, but used to post a lot over at RATS back in the day.
I am so glad that our squad is back and primed for a good playoff run! I have been going to games since the mid-80's, but really became hooked during those great runs in the 90's! I was there when Chuck Person went nuts and forced game 5 with Larry and the Celtics in 1991 and when Smits hit the shot vs. Orlando in '95. I have so many memories of going to crazy playoff games at MSA in the mid-late 90's with my grandparents. They have both passed away, and now it is my turn to hook my kids on playoff basketball by taking them to Game 1 of this first round. I have taken them to several games the past few years, but the only thing that comes close to a playoff atmosphere was the 4th quarter of the Knicks game earlier this month (which one of my daughters wasn't even at with us). These kids have no idea what they are in store for and I love it! I am hoping to make some true fans for life this coming weekend.
I'm already fired up for it, can't you tell?
I know they don't do this anymore, but they should...Break out the shaved heads and black shoes/socks, its PLAYOFF TIME!
