The NBA - basketball talk:
My Pistons are disappointing me right now, but my Bulls are kicking ass. As of the start of January 2012, they may have gotten most of the worst of this awkward 2011-2012 season over with. The annual Circus Road Trip* is behind them, and they've gotten their west coast games and some of the back-to-backs behind them, so it's gonna be a little easier physically for a bit. Wow. I almost let the first post go without putting up this:

And on the flip side, Joe Dumars will Never Live It Down for choosing Darko Milicic over Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade. They're not perfect, and have been immature, but there's a clear difference in talent. The Detroit "going to work" mentality may have had them turn out different. Game. Bullouses.
My teams had the best pre-game songs. The Pistons were the first to do "The Final Countdown", and combined it later with (local) Kid Rock's Bawitdaba. Rasheed added his own thing. Now they've got (local) Eminem's Lose Yourself. And of course, they had "Going to Work", linked above. The Bulls had the (local) Alan Parsons Project's "Sirius", directed by the (local) Wachowski Brothers. If you never watched a Bulls game live, here it is below. It would change a certain detail for whoever was visiting that game.

Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, over.
As mentioned before, I live not to far from the Mavericks. I like to see them do well to see their actual fans happy. But every now and then, a lot of Dallas fans seem to come out of nowhere.
