John Lopez of the Houston Chronicle talks about Manu having San Antonio on a string. Manu Ginobili plays with abandon, and that makes watching him so very exciting. The practical side of me says the man is going to hurt himself someday, but the other side of me just watches in amazement and cheers. What a player!

A local radio station is offering T-shirts with "Got Manu?" emlazoned on them. That simple phrase says so much, because Manu brings an exuberance and a freshness to the game like nobody else.

Here's to your health and longevity, Manu.

Watching the Playoffs

So far, I've been happy with the way the playoffs have been going. There have been few surprises, but many of the games have been good to watch.

The Spurs, after their disappointing first game, have been doing very well. I'm watching their first game in Seattle now, and it started slowly. We're about half way through the first quarter as I type this, and San Antonio is warming up. They just tied the game at 15-all after a scoring surge. I dare not write this one off.

I've had plenty of time to watch, since Her hubby is here, so She spends no time with me.
