AS I WAS SAYING......

It would appear as though about 75% of Nuggets fans are hitting the recreational weed a tad early [it's not legal until January 1]. During the recent embarassing loss to middling Memphis, a real time poll indicated that 75% thought that the Nuggets would end the calendar year above .500.  Well perhaps the 120-99 loss to the Grizzlies shook a few out of their haze.  If they had been paying attention, they would have noted the previous loss to lowly New Orleans as well as the Nuggies 5 [now 6] game losing streak.  They also might have looked to see that the Heat come to town tonight, and if one loses to Memphis by 21, one can only hope that Miami will show a bit of holiday mercy.

I have predicted that the Nuggets would be a sub-500 team this year, and they are right on course.  Last year's Nuggets went 57 and 25, but the sage ownership decided drastic changes were needed.  Idiots.  This year's version could go 25 and 57.  Rocky is more entertaining that the Nuggets.

And he has a pretty good shot!!


POST-MORTEM Well, Miami's version of holiday mercy was much like a cat playing with the mouse that it has caught, letting it feel like there was a chance, that there was a bit of hope, but knowing full well that when it came time, there would be no doubt as to who would be the winner. With about four minutes to play, the Heat awoke from their sleepwalk and put the game away. And once again, the high point of the evening was Rocky sinking his half-court, backwards, over-head shot on the FIRST try!

What a shame. Sounds like you have a Jerry Jones in charge. Oh, well, at least you have Peyton!

BB - right on. I am hoping that Peyton stays healthy and the Broncos remain focused. They have a fairly tough row to hoe to get to the Bowl. Lost to Indianapolis and San Diego, and it is tough to beat a team {Chiefs} three times in one season.

In torching last year's highly successful cadre, the brilliant owners/management forgot one thing - to do better in the playoffs, a team actually has to make it in to the playoffs. Nuggets are headed toward a last place finish, and even if they avoid the basement currently occupied by Utah, there will be no post season for the Nuggies - first time in a long time.
