The Suns Have Set!
I've already alerted the police. Put the city of Phoenix on suicide watch.
When the going gets tough, Suns fans find something else to do. Well, the going has gotten tough. The Shaq trade was a disaster, Mike D'Antoni went from great coach to "let's fire him" practically overnight, and the Suns window for a championship is closing faster than you can say "Robert Sarver is cheap."
Steve Nash had a horrible series against San Antonio, posting numbers well below his season averages, especially in assists where he averaged 7.8 against 11.1. Shaq is clearly over the hill and the Suns found out what it's like to be Hack a Shaqed. General manager Steve Kerr reportedly wants a defensive team, so not only will the Suns be bad, they also won't be entertaining to watch. It almost appears that the Suns are on the verge of rebuilding. On the bright side, we won't be hearing from bandwagon Suns fans for at least several years. By the way, Luol Deng and Rajon Rondo would look pretty good right now in a Suns uniform but Sarver needed to stack that cheese.
I'm not sure how I feel about PacMan Jones. He's everything that I hate about sports.
Then again, I felt the same way about Terrell Owens and he's made me a fan. I'm all about rooting for a team, not necessarily for the players. There's always several players on my favorite teams who I can't stand (i.e. Andruw Jones, ex-Lakers Kwame Brown, Glen Rice, Brian Cook). But I can legitimately say that I've grown to like Owens on the Cowboys and cheer for him and I hope one day PacMan will make me say the same thing.
Must see video:
This 7-year old has already been suspended by Roger Goodell.
My favorite quote from the next Tank Johnson is, "I wanna do it because it's fun, it's fun to do bad things
As for what his punishment should be, "No videogames for a weekend," he said.
Hide the dog food, Andruw is coming after that also. BTW, someone called Andruw "Fatman Jones" in Bill Simmons chat today. Just wanted to let you know.
Season: .165, 29 ks, 4 RBIs.
