[editor's note, by TZ] From the diaries. God bless ridnour8. This is the perfect tact to take today. It's too soon for renewed hope and zest. Tomorrow, we'll break out the vim and vigor. Today? Muted humility. -TZ
We had a family meeting last night, something important to discuss....
When all of my family was together I warned them of the pending ridicule stemming from Saturdays game against the Spurs. My three kids, in college, high school and middle school needed to be prepared. I instructed them that arguing, whining about officials calls, etc would not work after a game like this. I told them to memorize the follow and to present it in a robotic monotone:
I DONT THINK WE AS A TEAM COULD HAVE PLAYED WORSE THAN WE DID. WE WILL NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS. IT WAS ONLY ONE GAME AND THAT IS WHY THE PLAYOFFS ARE BASED ON A SEVEN GAME SERIES, ITS THE TEAM THAT WINS FOUR GAMES FIRST, NOT ONE GAME.
Hopefully it will work for them, I have used it once and it pretty much shut the conversation down. I cant wait for Tuesday afternoon, or can I? I dont know. GO KINGS.
