IT AIN’T OVER TIL IT’S OVER
IT AIN’T OVER TIL IT’S
A Cranky opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following opinion is that of a
cranky old man, opposing opinions are welcome (wrong, but welcome) but please,
no name calling, that means you, you big stupid-head.
So the Miami
Heat snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in game six of the NBA
championship series.I missed it.I am not a big fan of the NBA.If the Knicks were playing I would watch, but
otherwise not so much.I will probably
watch game seven tonight (Thursday.)Maybe
I’ll wait for the fourth quarter when the game usually gets interesting.
And that is
why I am commenting on a game I did not even watch.Basketball fans should know the game is not
over until the buzzer buzzes.Many Miami
Heat fans left this game with Miami down by five points and 28 seconds
remaining.They left to get to their
cars and beat the traffic, then when the game was tied up and going to overtime
they went nuts trying to get back into the arena.Security would not let them back in. HA!
understand fans paying big dollars to attend an event, ticket prices for this
game must have started at $50 or more, and then leaving before the game is
over.Even if the outcome is clear, I
would not leave early.I watched “Lincoln”
until the end even though I knew he would be shot.Anything can happen in a sporting event.Stay to the end or let a real fan get a
games ever, in any sport, all go to the final play.There is nothing as exciting as a big
comeback.Guess what there has never
been a big comeback that did not look like a lost cause…THAT’S WHY THEY’RE BIG
people leave baseball games in the seventh inning?How can you file out of a football game in
the fourth quarter?
In the name
of Magic Johnson, can anyone leave a championship basketball game with only 28
seconds left???Twenty-eight seconds!!!
Your team did not quit, why did you quit on your team?Are you going to beat the traffic in 28
seconds?If you are that worried about
traffic, STAY THE FRIG HOME.Watch it on
TV.You are not a fan, you are a poser.You go to the game to say you were at the
game.Your life revolves around beating
traffic?You are not a fan.A fan watches to the bitter end…just in
case.Traffic?Take your time, hang out, and stop for a
drink, that 28 seconds will not get you home that much sooner, and if getting
home is so important, STAY AT HOME in the first place.
You are not
a fan you people who exit early; you are as Mrs. Cranky so often calls me:
The preceding has been the opinion of
a Cranky Old Man and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky! Update - The heat won the Championship Thursday night. With 22 seconds left, Miami was up by 5 points. No fans left the stadium.
