That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! Tonight is Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. Not to say San Antonio’s players are getting a little old, but the game might have to be delayed with the Spurs needing extra time to get into the arena in Miami because there is no wheelchair access. Between the age of the Spurs and LeBron James’ cramping, since they are already in Miami they might just scrap the basketball and bring out the shuffleboard paddles. The only thing older than the Spurs at this point is the NBA season. Will you all be watching? Me neither. Instead, I will hopefully be reading all the notes from all of you who are using that time to send the love!
