Thanks for the pics from the old hometown Chris! Looks like fun. Hard to believe they built such a nice sports palace at the old Joe Freeman Coliseum (aka the stockyards!)

It is quite amazing. You can't see it in the picture but the Coliseum is right behind the SBC Center. Even with the two arenas, there is still plenty of parking.

I kind of hope the Spurs take it in 6 games. That way they will win while at home. :D

Chris,
Bet you wish just a little bit that last night's game had been in SA. Nice opening act, huh? :)

I missed it! Did Carrie Underwood sing?

It was a horrible game. Very painful to watch. I went to bed after the 3rd quarter. :nono2:

Yes, she did. Star-Spangled Banner! ;)

I also fell asleep during the third quarter. Yes, very painful. :(

I didn't see the beginning of the game the other night. For a minute there I thought I was watching a Red Sox game. How rude were those fans?! :mad: I guess I expect some booing, but so loud that you can clearly hear it over the TV? That's just TOO rude! :bad_nono:

I was just kidding about all that stuff I said in this thread about how good the Spurs are. That game last night was fugly. Luckily, I recorded it on my 921 and watched most of in fast forward.

All is not lost though. If they can get a win in Detroit on Sunday they'll be sitting pretty for the return home.

But just in case, I like my crow barbequed with a bit of black pepper. :rolleyes:

Wow! What a game last night. Robert Horry is definitely the hero. Tim Duncan should be thanking Horry for making up his missed free throw points.

That was the most exciting game I have seen in a long time. Definitely worth staying up late for especially since the home team won!

Tuesday should be a interesting night. Maybe I should call in sick on Wednesday. :lol:

I can remember Horry doing the same thing to the Spurs a few years ago when he was with the Lakers and even the Rockets. Mr. Clutch 3 pointer for sure. Pretty incredible with the hurt shoulder also....

Duncan just collapsed from the free throw line last night. He had been doing so well the whole series. Was even weirder that he was hot with the rest of his game....

They HAD to get out of there with a win for sure. Now let's win the championship at home!

Duncan is like that with the free throws... In the previous series, he had something like 15/15 one game, then followed that up with a 3/15 game a few nights later. Some guys, especially the big guys, seem to have a real problem with consistency on the free throw line.

If you saw any of the post-game stuff, Duncan was very quick to point out his free throw misses and to point out how Horry saved the day.

I'm rooting for San Antonio anyway... but I was especially pleased to see a good game finally in the series. Last night was the first time so far that BOTH teams played hard, and it showed with a close game.

I would not have been surprised to see Detroit win with a final second shot... but San Antonio made the right defensive plays at the end and kept the ball from Billups who had been Detroit's playmaker all night.

Duncan is like that, the prince of the league. David R. taught it to him. It's called sportmanship and Duncan is full of it. A real class act.

Go Spurs Go!

Spurs Win!!!



Wow! What a game last night. I was really worried at the beginning. It was shaping up to be Game 6 all over again. In the end though, the Spurs showed their true colors and finally started making some important shots. Way to go Spurs!

The celebration pretty much went all night last night. People were driving around all over the city and honking their horns. The downtown area was gridlocked with people and cars.

My daughter and I jumped into the car and only needed to drive a couple of miles. The main road coming into our neighborhood was immediately transformed into a cruising strip. Hundreds of people emerged from their homes and lined the streets while happy drivers honked, waived and gave high-fives. It was really a lot of fun.

The Spurs river parade is set for this Saturday followed by a big celebration rally at the Alamodome.

This is a great time for our city. Detroit is a tough team so we really had to earn this one.

Good idea! I plan on at least saving the last quarter of the game. Won't be able to save in HD but will transfer to DVD in anamorphic widescreen.

Everyone here in San Antonio is on cloud nine this morning.

That's actually not too bad. I just spent $46 plus tax on just the shirt and the hat. I plan to get the DVD when it's released. Should be pretty easily available here in town.

BTW, I finally did see that. My wife had it recorded on the Tivo upstairs. Carrie did a great job.
