Knut gave a talk at the Austin Usablitiy Professionals Association this evening on the frog design process. It was a wonderful talk but it was simultaneous to the Spurs Lakers game and when the presentation was over there were 7 minutes left in the game. The organizer told us where the nearest sports bar was and when we got to the TV the Spurs were winning in a close game and the bar crowd was enthusiastic with every Spurs basket. The score went back and forth for a few then Tim made a great basket to put us ahead with 11 seconds left. OK, then the Lakers made an even more spectacular shot with .1 second remaining in the game to win. The whole bar went dead. It was opera. I never trust the Lakers to lose so I was only depressed, not surprised. I don't know why I get emotional about a bunch of millionaires playing ball but Spurs playoff games share a quality of opera in the entertainment center of my brain. Looking for a Spurs LJ I actually found a Lakershater community.

I thought about you when I woke up this morning and your sure sadness about yesterday's game. "One lucky shot deserves another lucky shot."

I'm just praying that the Heat can beat Indiana in Indiana. I've been watching them, attending some games, and watching the NBA all season long. The Heat has really surprised me but, I've been a fan even during the last two poor seasons. Like I mentioned, Alonzo Mourning's health was the team's demise because the team was built around him. I think people now are saying Pat Riley is very astute when only last year they were calling him a dog. The playoffs have been really good this year. :-))

You forgot that Kobe made a jump shot with 11 seconds left, prior to Timmy's clutch shot (which actually went in with .4 seconds left, I know because I had TiVoed the game to watch an Israeli movie with Donna).

A good BBall game is most certainly opera, good analogy, esp. with the Lakers involved. I'll have to look for the Lakershater LJ: I'm already a member in spirit.

In order to change the Spurs luck I changed my magic toenail polish today to pink. I feel sure that will help.
