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.
