Clips Nation.-

Sorry for the delay in posting this Clipper Daily. At this point, I am speechless after last night's game but still hopeful we can take the series in 6.

I do have to say that I am angry at a number of people starting with the game officials and Memphis fans. To echo our Fearless Leader's words, stay classy, Memphis. Probably, New Orleans and Memphis should join forces and create one fan base. They compliment each other quite well. No class.

Anyway, here your Clipper fix for today and thanks to Lawler's Law for some of the links.

Reminder: Tomorrow's game is at 6 PM (PST)
