Last night the Mavs beat the Suns 117-101 to take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference Finals. The picture is from my seats on the Platinum level (section 215, Row H, seat 11). The seats had a face value of $147. I was sitting in front of one of the red white and blue half circle decorations you can see encircling the arena (you may have to click on the picture above to see them).
Dirk hit a career playoff high 50 points. The only other person to score 50 in the playoffs this year is Kobe Bryant. I'm glad the rest of the country is finally getting to see what Dallas has seen for the last 8 years...Dirk is a bad *ss mother f*ck*r!
When I walked into the arena, I saw Boogey Bob explaining to some lady how famous he is (I've tried that too with limited success). I noticed Boogey Bob has added a photo he took of us together at the Spurs playoff game a couple of weeks ago to his web site. I don't know what the crap is that Boogey Bob stuck on his face...he's Boogey Bob, let's just leave it at that. Now I don't know how you measure fame, but being on Boogey Bob's web site has to be some kind of indicator in that general direction. The two of us are very different people, brought together by our tenacious desire to dance.
They had a few new videos at the arena. The best was "Court Wars: Round III - Revenge of the Dirk" which was a spoof of "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith." The video had the look of "Raiders of the Lost Trophy" with just the faces being replaced. The scene was the final battle between Obi-Wan (played by Dirk Nowitzki) and Anakin (played by former Mav and best friend Steve Nash). "You were the chosen one!" "We were going to rule the NBA together!" Dirk made several comments about Steve's bad hair. Very funny!
They had some updates to videos from round 2. The "Manu Flop" was changed into the "Raja Flop." The "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Spurs Fans" is now, wait for it, "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Suns Fans."
They had a Simpson's intro using Mavericks personalities. They also had a song parody based on the Beatles "Here Comes the Sun."
