Saturday Saigas

Saiga_medium

Hello again, friends. It's been a minute since I really got to post, and I missed a few things in that span. Let's catch up.

- First of all, the voting for the Scrubdown is live. I'll give it until the end of the weekend, but it looks like I might have to cut the final list down to 5 or so to guarantee that each scrub gets a post. Show your bench buddies some love.

- The schedule was released this week, and it's a doozy. The Knicks open at home, against Miami, for the first time in a while.  There are three substantial road trips: 5 games in December (including D'Antoni's return to Phoenix), 4 games at the beginning of January, and then another five in the East and Midwest in March. The longest homestand of the year is a four game swing in the middle of January.

- I had a dream last night that the Knicks (starring Andre Iguodala for some reason) had won the first-ever game against the Oklahoma City franchise. I woke up this morning thinking I had to write a recap.

- Barnesgasm, now world-renowned, checks in with his newest "The Knicks Are...". A taste: "Be honest. When you hear Anthony Roberson, you picture two guys frolicking in a meadow, gaily hitting a shuttlecock over a net and taking a break at two for crumpets."

- As far as I can tell, the Italian basketball team is not participating in the Olympics, and we won't be seeing Danilo Gallinari. I'm not really in tune with these things, though. Happy Birthday, by the way, to Danilo, who turned 20 yesterday.

- Speaking of which, did anyone see those opening ceremonies? The lights and shit were cool, but I'm all about the parade of nations. Where else do you ever get to see Syrian boxers and sprinters from Mauritius? It's amazing. Can someone help me come up with a name for my new blog about Azerbaijani wrestling?

That's it for now. Relax, have a great weekend, and enjoy the olympics. Oh, and vote for your favorite scrubs if you haven't yet done so. Peace.
