I love you guys. This GBB community is great. I think we have a strong base of basketball knowledge seeing as how Memphis runs on their pride in Memphis Tiger basketball. The conversation is great, the debates even better. I even occasionally like an opposing fan to come on over give their opinion and see the reaction of the core of this base.
On the contrary, if there is one thing I must learn is, it is to stay off of other blog sites/comment sections. It just makes me furious. You know, the ones who talk about our fan base as if we were a pile of pig slop that just fell off the wagon onto a growl towel that is riddled with bullet holes. Those who make comments like this:
...why waste perfectly good beer over the stupidity of their dim witted fans.
If your wife weighed 400lbs. on a good day and your kids have already lost half their teeth, you;d be mad at the world too. They live in the armpit of America. I'm sure it is a very sad existence.
I've been through that state a few times. I'd feel more comfortable in Baghdad. Nothing but dirty hillbilly trailer trash. It's a horro movie waiting to happen. Even during the day, you can run into a perfectly normal 25year old woman or man...And then they open their mouth and there is only one tooth. How does that even happen in a first world country??? In Tennessee it is common no joke. Sick, sick disgusting people.
They don't know us. They don't know anything about our arena and they certainly don't know anything about our city. Not to mention these generalizations are as overblown and outdated as a "WHHAAASSSSSSSSSUUPP??" reference. It is as ignorant as they claim we are.
However, I do not wish to get revenge with words. I am sure LA is an interesting city, full of culture very different than our own. Despite what I have heard about it, I have never been there so I could not know what it is like. No, the sweetest revenge would be a series win. For the Grizzlies to defend their honor and the honor of the city they represent. Nothing could be more satisfying than that. Not even T.J. Simers breaking his leg walking in downtown LA due to falling in a literal rat hole. A hole that's made by rats. Not even that.
Tonight is the first game I am actually excited to watch. Grizzlies are on a roll. Can they continue their winning ways on the road? Check out today's Grind Prophecies and heads up: there is a twist to the Dealer's Choice category. I'm adding a new math element for you "hillbillies." Enjoy.
