It’s not even 9:00 and I’m already worn out.

The funeral is this morning, it’s rainy outside (again!), and don’t even get me started on the Mavs’ heartbreaking loss to those thugs from Golden State last night.

I’m mad at Bill Simmons, I’m mad at Don Nelson, and if I have to look at one more headline about “Golden Boys” with Baron Davis’ smug face staring back at me from the photograph, I’ll poke my own eyes out.

Could someone please write something about how this “upset” was not as “surprising,” “stunning,” or “historic” as it looks on paper?  Can someone please mention the tiny detail about how Golden State finished off the regular season with the best record in the league?  Can someone talk about how they weren’t a true eighth seed?

Here’s the thing.  I play fantasy football with my husband and his buddies every year.  Yeah – I’m THAT girl.  Every year they laugh at me during the draft, but every year they’re crying about my team when the playoffs roll around.  On my fantasy team, there are no thugs allowed.  You don’t make my roster with a bad attitude, a diva mentality, a drug problem, pending criminal charges, or a mouth that constantly talks badly about your teammates and/or coach.  So what if I pick my defense in the third round?  In my book, that’s how you end up with a better defense than the other guys – and defense counts for half the game as far as I’m concerned.

I’m mad that my Mavs can’t get a break.  I’m mad that they don’t get the credit when they deserve it but they get all the blame when they don’t.  I’m just mad.

I know I’m whining like a spoiled child, but I don’t care. I just need to be mad right now.

On the positive side: today is our employability skills lunch.  The beef mist will be permeating the air in a matter of hours! 🙂
