After Half Report

We'll not be discussing that botched sequence at the end of the second quarter. Suffice it to say, that's not in the recipe book under "how to spring a massive playoff upset."

In the meantime, bearing in mind that all of this is old news to Cavs fans, but whoever runs the shop here is hopelessly devoted to bad puns. You know how they gave out these reddish colored "Rise Up" shirts at the beginning of the game? And how they're apparently "wine" colored? Well, the scoreboard has run the following messages in an attempt to guilt fans into putting on the shirts:

"Wine aren't you wearing your shirt?"

"Quit your wining and put it on."

"Wine was free?"


Also, there are different sections of "Loudville," which is the name of the 400 level. Like, the part under Ira Newble's photo is called "Ira's Newblehood." The part under Donyell Marshall is called "Yell's Angels." And so on.

Also, are you familiar with the old Cavs mascot, the one that preceded MoonDog, the polar bear looking thing called "Whammer?" I guess fans didn't like Whammer. They just booed him when he came out. And they seem to cheer for MoonDog. I like Whammer better.

Also, do you know what Eric Snow's wife's name is? It's DeShawn. Really. I wonder if he feels funny when facing the Wiz.

Gilbert and Caron were both dressed very nicely in the TV shot of them I saw.

So, Eric Snow's wife's name is DeShawn. What an absolute classic.

Can she feel her face?
