We know the defense has been, well, lacking so far this season. We've been allowing our opponents more points (108+ on average) than anybody, even the New York Knicks! But while we're figuring out what defense is all about, we don't dare slack off on scoring!

"Hey boss, my back hurts, so why don't you turn in those reports instead, okay? Cool." Yeah, that's the ticket...

Amazing - those kind of players actually exist!

I know it's only pre-season, but my adrenaline's pumping already. The real thing just can't come soon enough...

The burning question I ask is what do you buy for somebody that makes millions of dollars a year??
My birthday was last month and I got a chia dog and a rotato. I knew I should have participated in middle school gym class.

I’ve been gone for awhile, but during the summer there’s more MLB action than NBA anyway. And one cool thing about baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night at Coors Field, Arizona Diamondbacks’ fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one. And they finally nailed the win over the Colorado Rockies, 2-1
5-plus hours on the field is rare, but turns out there were two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Over at

Well I am a coward. I fretted and worried so much during the Suns series versus Mavericks that I didn’t even write in my blog the entire time. I was sure if I said anything I was going to jinx things for Nash and the boys. So I watched all the games in my favorite chair and wore my jersey with pride.
My dad called me the afternoon of game six to tell me he won some tickets at work and that he wanted me to go with him. I jumped at the chance and went to get ready for the game. I went to put my jersey on and there was a problem, it stunk to high hell. There was hot wing sauce on the sleeve and the BO smell was way to strong to cover up with that Axe crap my ex-girl bought me. I didn’t have time to go downstairs and wash it so I wore my Western Conference Finals shirt from last year.
The rest is history. I knew when I was leaving my apartment that olfactory offenses were not worth jinxing my team but I heard my dad’s voice in my head saying “You smell like the Sasquatch and you know women don’t respect men who won’t take personal hygiene seriously. If you would spend more time on your grooming you might be able to fool some nice girl into thinking you would make a nice husband.” When you have heard that lecture a thousand times since your twelfth birthday you try to avoid it whenever humanly possible. So we lost.
I am going to need years of therapy to undo the damage this has done. I get Suns Playoffs tickets for the first time in my life and I throw ritual and superstition out the window to please my dad. Just kidding. I’m fine. There is always next year and we still have Steve Nash. Thank you Suns for a special season! Go Suns!

I was really scared for the Suns last night. I though we got lucky last series in game seven and I know we did in this game seven. The Suns proved to be the better team, which I also already knew. We are going to face the Mavericks now and I don’t like what I am hearing around the water cooler at work. A lot of folks seem to think we can’t beat them after two game sevens. I don’t think we are going to be any more tired than the Dallas Mavericks after their series against the San Antonio Spurs. No, we are going to smoke the Mavs with our weapon of mass assists, Nash.

Frankly I have been afraid to write anything throughout the playoffs because I don’t want to jinx my team. The Suns are playing the Clippers right now and they are ahead but the Clippers aren’t making it easy. There have been some hard games in this series and I don’t know what else to say but we’ve got Steve Nash, the MVP of the league, on our side and we have become more aggressive on defense in the second round. The Phoenix Suns are going to the Western Conference Finals and if we meet the

The Phoenix Suns are headed to the playoffs and I know just the man to lead them there. His name is Steve Nash and this is his year. Whether they bring down the big prize or not I enjoyed this season and think Steve Nash deserves MVP of the league once more. I know there are rumors it may be Kobe Bryant but I like the Nash idea a lot better.

The Phoenix Suns made short work of the Denver Nuggets and are going up against the New Jersey Nets tonight. It has been an exciting season and now that UCLA has made it to the Final Four my March is really complete. The Suns are 47-21 for the season and I think this is going to be our year to win the big prize. Go Suns!
