NBA Finals: Game 1

Filed under Mavericks

It is 1:28 am, and I just got back from the Mavs game! What fun! We won 90-80...only 3 wins away from an NBA Championship! Even with Dirk having a terrible game, we were able to win by 10. If Dirk has a "normal" game 2, Miami will be in trouble!

I sat in the 2nd to last row facing the Heat on the lower level. A very obnoxious Heat fan from Miami was sitting in front of me. He let everybody know he *normally* sits in the front row at Heat games and he traveled to see all the Heat playoff games. Any time a Mavs fan stood up to cheer, he'd yell at them to sit down because they were blocking his view. I told him he was worse than Avery Johnson's wife. He was so annoying that I decided I had to retaliate. Every time the Heat did something stupid, I'd make a comment just to make him mad. Every ref call against the Mavs: "There it is again...the refs helping the Heat." Walker jacking up another brick: "I'm soooo glad we got rid of that guy...he sucks!" And it worked like a charm...I was really getting under his skin!. The best was Shaq shooting free throws! I'd laugh my *ss off (like De Niro in "Cape Fear") every time he missed a free throw...and he missed a lot, so I laughed a lot. "Oh good, Shaq got fouled! Let the comedy show begin!" Shaq ended shooting 1 of 9 at the line...11%! Unbelievable! 5 eleven year old boys sitting next to me were also annoyed by the loud Heat fan, so they all decided to joined in with a chorus of shrill laughter every time Shaq laid a brick. It must of worked...the guy stopped talking trash midway through the 3rd.

The W Hotel was lit up tonight at the very top with green and blue neon...I'm guessing that is what they do when the Mavs win, but I'd never seen it before.

I took a bunch of pictures and have some video to upload, but I won't get to that until this weekend. More later...off to bed! GO MAVS!

Concerning Shaq's free throws...two of his misses were waived off because of lane violations by the Mavs...if you include those bricks, Shaq was 1 for 11 or 9% from the free throw line. That is hee-haw, knee-slapping, pee-in-your-pants funny!
