    Deadspin:
    Dom Cosentino: Ben Folds Five Wants To Be Bobcats’ Pep Band

    The Charlotte Bobcats won their opener the other night, which is an occasion in and of itself.
    Sure, things returned to normal the next night when they lost to the Mavericks by 27, but
    Bobcats fever is spreading, so much so that no less than alt- rock piano maestro Ben Folds
    wants to get his band (he and the two other original members of the Five reunited last year)
    in on the action:


    The Bobcats seem enthusiastic about the proposal, as well they should be.


    I heartily endorse everything about this arrangement, both because Folds puts on one helluva
    live show, and because he's already written the chorus for what, with just a few lyrical tweaks,
    could very easily be the Bobcats' fight song.

    The Pacers just tweeted (via David Benner) that Paul George is out tonight with the flu.

    Uh oh. Must have caught it from GHill.

    The guys better man up without PG tonight. DWest and Roy need to step up tonight with Charlotte's weak interior.

    I was just about to post that this could be a good game to give McGuire some minutes. But I was thinking it would be after Paul George led us to a nice lead.

    I wonder if the Pacers offered the players flu shots in the fall.

    That's a little innapropriate to celebrate someone being physically hurt.

    Although i can see your point, i am sure that he wasn't celebrating in the manner that you are referring to. I am guessing he is just referring to Wallace being out of the game tomorrow.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    No Paul George tonight (and maybe not tomorrow - flu) Newest Pacer Dominic McGuire will see his first action, getting the start.

    Ugggggh. :/

    With PG out and perhaps Roy also out (and Hill probably still not healthy - takes awhile to recover from bronchitis), this could get ugly. It's probably not the last we're going to see of our players getting the flu either.

    Good God! Why doesn't a professional basketball team REQUIRE all players to get a flu shot?
    I mean, seriously, the health of the players has everything to do with the success of the team. Besides, they are together so often that one case can spread to all of the rest of them.

    I'm not worried. It will give us a chance to see more from Orlando.

    If we were going to miss PG for a game, I would rather it be against a team like the Kitties.

    Although they've already beaten us once this year, I don't expect for us to stand for that again.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Bobcats have a better record against us this season than the Heat, so I wouldn't automatically be predicting 'WIN!!!' Saying, "We're going to win this game!" is entirely inappropriate. "The Bobcats are terrible and will lose by double digits!!!!" isn't helping either.

    Our flu shots do not cover all the strains of flu one can get - it's impossible to do that. Healthcare professionals make their best guesses about which types of flu will be popular based on a number of variables. Sometimes they miss a couple and/or a strain mutates and so the flu shot is less effective.

    Moral of the story - they may have all gotten flu shots, but were unlucky in contracting a strain they weren't protected against. And once one of them gets it...
