I recently questioned why street ball games are special. Why the hype? The answer arrived on a Sunday night at Cal State Long Beach. The game took place at The Pyramid stadium. If you ever drive past it, you can mistake the blue pyramid as a cheap imitation of Las Vegas. As it is in SoCal (Southern California), the day was hot. I know it was since my contact lens dried up. Bah. Humbug. Manufacturing tears to keep the contacts glued to my eyes is hard work so I had to remind myself that the 2011-2012 NBA season is gone. Now I know how it feels like when doves cry.
