oh, the season-ending miss.

why didn't korver take that shot?
can anyone answer this question?

it is so hard to be a fan. the wins are great, but the losses (particularly the season-ending 3-point losses) just make me feel sad and sick. i hate being so invested, because i feel kind of stupid for caring so much. particularly when, in professional sports, one must wonder if the game is pre-determined, based on which team would sell the most tickets should they go to the playoffs. (lakers/celtics? both top-seeded teams?) but alas.

i'm trying not to rewatch the last three minutes of that game, because it's just too sad.

i'm having lasik surgery on monday. part of me is horribly afraid that i'll be that one person who spends all that money to no avail. but most of me is ridiculously ecstatic to never have to put in another pair of contacts. (oh, except for those green ones i got with no prescription. i'm quite vain.) but it will be kind of amazing to wake up in the morning and be able to see the clock without putting contacts in. or to fall asleep in front of the tv and not worry about dry eyes or broken glasses.

i'm at work right now, so this is kind of disjointed because i keep stopping to help patients and forgetting what else i want to say on these subjects.

i always invest way too much into things (see first paragraph).

i'm ready to be done at work.


  1. Oh Shmal. It is so sad. Dear, sweet, Kyle. Next season, right?


  2. sad sad game. so close. we tivoed it and were going nuts watching it. boo. i think it was a good move by korver tho cos he was covered. if only williams' shot had gone in. sad jazzes. next season right? :)

  3. little dogey, i can relate to the sports depression. ghetto.

    good luck on the lasik! i'm way jel.

  4. Yeah, in the middle of that game I said (to no one in particular) "Why am I a sports fan? Why do I watch these games when I hate them?" And Jeff said (even though I was talking to no one in particular), "then don't watch." I was annoyed, but I didn't take his advice. I watched it anyway and thought the same thing after it was over--"Why am I a sports fan again?" But I do know why. I really do love it. But I also hate it.

    And what the lasik? Did Pops talk you into it?

  5. Double comment...I am ashamed.

    Maybe you should blog about your airport experience and your new found vision...just an idea.
