    At least if someone hollers BOOM and rips off their shirt I will know who it is.

    Interesting. I never have been a drinker. In order to maintain my sanity in games I just have to walk away from watching for a bit.

    Highlights are great. Nobody ever misses.

    If the Suns can keep the game close going into the latter part of the 4th quarter they have a solid chance of winning. This is usually when Chris Paul takes over.

    I think this is the pattern, especially with the Nuggets. The Suns D makes the other team really work to score, in this case Jokic. The Joker is highly skilled, but he is not a physical freak or an endurance athlete. He runs out of gas near the end of the third quarter, but he has to be on the floor for that team to function. His fatigue is their achilles heal.

    Only team in the west that looked better than the Suns was a healthy Lakers team.

    After beating them it was like the red sea (no pun) parting.

    I'm thinking that's easier said than done playing in Denver's altitude. We need to do our best not to let it come down the end of the game and smack them hard coming out the gate.

    The Jazz looked dang good last night. I really wish we would have gotten home court advantage over them. They scare me.

    I wish I could say the same. I grew up in the Valley in an extended construction family (father, uncles, cousins, brothers etc.) in the 60's and alcohol (mostly beer) was just a fact of life. Then, I joined the army and was stationed in Germany for 39 months and beer was cheaper than soda and just as available. It was served in the mess hall and everywhere else. I started drinking to get drunk and it wasn't long before I stopped believing that I could have a good time without consuming a lot of alcohol.

    My wife was never much of a drinker so she handled sports disappointments the way that you do. I'd try to do the same thing but I just couldn't stay away no matter how poorly my team was playing. Even now, I record while watching the game and if it's going bad for us I'll just pause it and come back to that point a few minutes later once I've settled down a bit.

    I find it fascinating you guys have such extreme responses to the games. I get hyped in the moment if we are winning and can get slightly frustrated when we are not but it has never been something that would actually impact my life. Crazy how different one mind is to another.
