Today, over at theknicksblog.com, Tommy Dee posted a link to a zagsblog article regarding the possibility of Iman Shumpert moving to the starting lineup. Some people here don't like Tommy Dee - I happen to like him, but that's not what the post is about.
The post is about the reason my heart was filled this morning with a sudden influx of quasi-embarassing yet genuine love and appreciation not only for Seth and Osborn and Gian but for the crew of thoughtful and amusing regular comment and fanpost contributors here at Posting and Toasting. And the reason my heart was filled with syrupy goo is that in response to Tommy's perfectly reasonable and informative post about Shumpert starting, the very first comment posted in response was this gem:
FRANKGIFFORDFAN Top executives with the shoe company have made no secret of the fact that they'd like nothing more than to see Howard in either New York or Los Angeles. With fellow client Derrick Rose in Chicago, Howard would give Adidas a stronghold in two of the country's three biggest markets and the wherewithal to challenge Nike. "They'd love to corner those two markets," said a person connected to the sneaker industry. "They'd be in heaven, I can tell you that." CBSSports.com
Frankgifford fan, If you're on here, I apologize - I'm sure you're a nice person. I just don't want to talk sports with you.
Trying to work together as a team to produce success is a perplexing yet beautiful riddle. It is a quintessentially human endeavor. As human beings, we struggle to balance the individual with the group and to succeed in our endeavors. As spectators and supporters of the Knicks' attempts, we gain insight into what it means to live and be human. We learn, not just about the fascinating game of basketball, but about our fellow humans, what makes them tick, and how we can be part of a successful team in our lives. It's not just about wearing certain colors and drinking beer and getting the best, most famous players and turning over cars and lighting them on fire if and when a championship is won. It's about the journey.
Let me reitierate: I ♥ P & T.
I hope I haven't embarassed anyone.
