This time, I can safely blame the lateness of this posting on technology. Even though I want zero minutes of the telecast, I did tune in and out on radio, and once again, my refusal (involuntary in this case) came through for us!...Onto SAS. My expectations are raised and expect a good series, albeit a less physical, but still entertaining. I hope the Grizz's physicality has rubbed off on the Clippers and they take that into this next series! CLIPPERNATION RISE!!!!
