Boom! Cards Open New Arena With Beat Down Of Bulldogs

Honestly, that game was such crap.  Howard had like 3 fouls in the first part of the second half that weren't called, each of which would have been his 4th and totally changed that game.  He also got the NBA treatment at our end, and Butler clearly made "getting to the basket and getting fouled" their offensive strategy in the second half.  Meanwhile, we let our foot off the gas a bit, Butler kept it in the half-court, which is clearly our weak spot this season, and who is going to step up and take the big shots?  

Honestly, I turned it off when Howard had two free throws to cut it to 9.  I assume we lost.

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Seriously, awesome game, atmosphere at the Arena was great, crowd really into it until about 10 minutes left when they kept....calling...fouls.  Buckles and Justice are both guys who want the ball with the game seemingly in doubt.  TJ stepped up.  What a freaking awesome game. 

And the best part......

An M'Fin' Villen. 

Basketball is back.
