Arenas is Superman

Today, a lot of games can go any which way. Up. Down. Right. Left. I love it. It’s a gambler’s paradise…if you want to look at it that way.

Yes, I bet big on a lot of inflated spreads (which are the evil kobold of Satan) and a couple upsets. Usually, it’s me who’s crying in the end, but hey, what can a man do without a little bit of fun during this drab week before Thanksgiving break!?
 
Hell, by drafting hella Utah Jazz players, my fantasy team is making as much progress as rhino dung in Alaska. Yeah, I said it.
 
Now, on to the real meat. Get those drooling, ugly Rottweilers out. We’re going to have a dangerous feast…
 
Figure this one out: someone’s going to be 5-3 after the 5-1 Wiz take on the 5-2 Cavs…I don’t give a flying turkey breast that Larry Hughes is playing his old team! Wrap that in some pork and throw it to the piranhas. Same with game beginning in Ohio…home court advantage is for the little project player pussies in college. I’m ridin’ the Arenas bandwagon. Who bets against Superman, the defender of the free world and all that’s remotely considered sexy and good anymore? Bush?…give me the Wiz and your seven points. Thank you…
 
I wouldn’t put money on the Wolves for 20 floor seats to the Bulls-Wiz game. I figure sometime they’re going to come out of their luck streak (which happens to have them at .500). My brother Jord and I have a very nice wager on their playoff status. We all know Garnett’s the only player on that team, and his numbers just aren’t the same. Jaric is a cross-eyed poser along with the rest of the team, but he’s just the most annoying. Mac and the Rox roll…
 
Denver-Dallas…For some reason I put the paper on the Mavs, not much paper, though, mind you. Don’t you get the feeling this spread would be in favor of the Nugs if it was in Denver? Who honestly can say Dallas is better than Denver…without Nash and Finley? Well, one frickin’ crazy basketball fan I guess. Check that, one rich, intelligent, crazy, basketball fan…
 
Clippers-Milwaukee is going to be ugly as hell (sorry about the cheap rip Sammy Cassell). Watching these two teems is like watching two 14-year-olds make out in the hallway…Sometimes you just have to give in to logic: the Clips are a motley crew that will bite anyone’s nose off their face for a win. That’s desperation, and I don’t mess around with that…Corey Maggette is not a sixth man!…Maggette is not a sixth man!…Corey Maggette is not a sixth man.
