The Sushi & Suns False Dichotomy


After work last night, I went to happy hour with some co-workers for beer and dollar sushi night at a local Alexandria dive. I love sushi, but rarely get to enjoy it. Maybe twice a month at this point and I wish it was more because it brings me so much happiness.

Living in D.C. now I'm now only able to watch the Suns play about this often as well, but it brings me so much joy. I yell at steve to at least pretend to play defense, tell Leandro (before he turns the ball over again) to stop dribbling and let Grant play "point forward", and laugh at T.P. every time he thinks he's coaching with a defensive mindset.

The false dichotomy is this: the Suns have a new look and personnel.... but are the same old team that can score at will without ever committing to locking a team down with defense.

Nothing is better then staying up till 1:30am in the morning on a work night to watch "B. Roy" drop 52 on your team while they blow late game leads.


Get used to this sight Suns fans. Western conference guards (Parker, Manu, CP3, Roy, Deron, etc) have always and will continue to have huge games against us.

On the plus side, I now own suns throwback jerseys of Barkley, KJ, Elliot Perry, and lookin to find a decent Majerle jersey that doesn't cost 150 bones.....

On the EXTRA plus side, I still love my team and am a long way off from killing myself D.C. style like some poor schmuck did this past week.

While you're in town we gotta go get sushi. Pete's working at a sushi spot in Tempe market place called Bukkaki or something like that, we should go.

Why am I not surprised Pete is affiliated with an establishment with a name strikingly similar to "Bukkake"....another typical asian move....

Ben said...

He actually works at "Kabuki", but for whatever reason whenever I hear it I think Bukkake. That made for an interesting conversation when I mentioned the similarity to a group of female climbers who didn't know what Bukkake meant.

Tim said...

Let me break it to ya gently benny-boy, but they knew what Bukkake meant....they were just trying to get you to creep a little bit farther away from them.

Another typical asian moves perpetuates itself.
