Thoughts Heading Into A Momentous Game Six

13 05 2010

Lots on my mind. Need to ramble. Time for some quick thoughts.

Quick Thoughts:

  • I know, I know. Game Five was historically terrible. Maybe even insulting. But I will try not to dwell on it. I’ve already written my two cents. But if you want more on it, I’ll recommend stories by Brian Windhorst and Bill Simmons. Great reads with some great points.

  • We’re down, but not out. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. The more I sit back and watch everything unfold in the media and the sports blog world, the more I cannot help but think we are all overreacting a little bit.

  • All we need to do is win tonight. If we do that, it’s back even and it all comes down to one game, and it’ll be in our house. I know the Cavs haven’t taken advantage of home court so far this series. But if the game comes back to Cleveland, that means the Cavs had an attitude change tonight. Momentum suddenly swings in our favor.
  • In the world of the internet, sports fans have become so engulfed with media coverage. Things get blown out of proportion all the time. You hear the same story on SportsCenter three different times, read about it on websites, then get exposed to it yet again on twitter… Suddenly, you start believing its that big of a deal.
  • Because of all the instant and hounding coverage, we live in a “What Have You Done For Me Lately?” world now more than ever before. It only took one horrid loss to turn Cavalier fans’ world upside down. It will only take one win to put it back in perspective. It will only take two wins to get back to everyone’s goal: winning a championship.
  • How can we beat the Celtics? Here’s my unprofessional opinion that means diddly-squat: Read the rest of this entry »
