I’m probably really close to getting kicked out of my apartment after Monday night.
Usually, I come here and leave a few hundred words with witty commentary on whatever interesting events that might have occurred from the previous night. Unfortunately, I’m going to be unable to do such a thing.
Game Five took something out of me. Maybe my nerves. Maybe five years off my life. Maybe more grey hair. Who knows? The Oklahoma City Thunder won last night. The San Antonio Spurs didn’t. That’s all that matters.
Russell Westbrook’s alley-oop dunk from Kevin Durant was just plain awesome. The things that occurred after it was like riding a roller coaster with no seatbelt. Doesn’t matter; the Thunder won. That’s all that matters.
