UPDATE: We now know what we'll be watching. An elimination game for the Clippers. They must win in San Antonio if they want to force a Game 7 and prolong their season. The Game is on TNT and tips off at 6:30. I KNOW it's going to be difficult to get there -- trust me, I know. I'll finish work at 5 PM north of downtown -- I'll drive straight to Torrance, and who knows if I'll make it for tip off. But I'm going -- because I'm not going to watch this game alone. Meet me there and let's support each other and the team.
You know what we haven't done for a really, really long time? We haven't had a Viewing Party at Joey's Smokin' BBQ! In case you don't know already, longtime citizen of Clips Nation pegitom owns a great BBQ restaurant in Torrance, which we take over from time to time. And Thursday night for Game 6 we're going to do it again!
Game 6 is going to be huge, one way or another. If the Clippers win Game 5 Tuesday night, then Thursday will be a closeout game for L.A., a chance to advance to the second round by defeating the defending NBA Champions. And if they lose on Tuesday, then it's an elimination game, potentially the last game of the season. Either way: this is big, and I can't watch it sitting alone on my couch. I want to watch it in a restaurant FILLED with Clipper fans.
We've never had a Viewing Party for such an important game so please make every effort to be there. I know it won't be easy on a Thursday afternoon in L.A. -- and we won't know for a few days what time tip off is, making it even more complicated. I don't care -- no excuses -- get there. The food is fantastic, and pegitom will have 20% off regularly priced menu items including drinks all night.
If there's enough interest, I'll even have one of my insanely difficult Trivia Contests. Let me know in the comments section if you're up for that.
