This is a great day to be a Pacer fan.
We have locked up fifth place in the entire league. We have the third seed in the East. We have enjoyed a great winning season. We are poised to enter the second round of the playoffs, maybe further.
I would not ridicule anyone for not persevering through the last five years of hell known as Pacerdom. Whether the brawl, five losing seasons, or the madness of JOB, it has been an unmitigated disaster.
So . . . who of our faithful Pacers Digest members did not weather the storm? I can list two:
Twes and Putnam.
Two excellent contributors whose participation I miss very much.
But, again, I can fault no one for dropping off in the midst of this wilderness. However, I can indeed give major props to every Pacer fan and all the members of this board who have stuck it out through the tough times. I salute you all.
