Adnan scheduled this, but it didn't publish because we're still having technical issues. So I'm going to take this space to talk about what's on my mind: Lameness. It just so happened that I got to read excerpts from the journal (as a guy, I don't keep diaries) I wrote in when I was 20.

They're hilarious. I thought I knew it all. So smug and superior.

Obviously, nothing has changed. I just throw more facts behind my elitism now. But, hearing my own voice from 15 years ago made me wonder just how shell-shocked our rookies were after Game one. Nothing like a little humble pie to keep expectations in check, right? Luckily, the staff can help the young players cope with the butt-whippin' they got. They've had two days to prepare, so it's time to bounce back or kiss this series goodbye.
