Posting will be light today (if I or anyone posts at all) mostly because, well, I just don't feel like it. I think I mostly shot my blogging wad these past few days and it's time for an early start on the weekend.
One note, the Mavericks (no, the REAL Mavericks) opened the season against Houston last night. They kept it close until Houston went on a 16-2 run in the 4th, and they simply weren't able to rally back in classic Mavs late-rally fashion. At some point I was going to do a round-up of previews and predictions by various sports pundits for the season, but there's just too much going on in the world of politics to get to everything. I can tell you that the general consensus (at least of what I've seen) is that they are probably the 2nd or 3rd or even 4th best team in the Southwest Division and that while a playoff spot is likely the Finals are not. If there are any outliers to that consensus they're negative, predicting even less success than that; nobody is predicting a Finals appearance, let alone a championship. So, the window may have closed for this team, but being as I watching and listening to games when they were barely notching double digit win totals in a season, I suppose I won't be going anywhere.
