We leave tomorrow morning for a short trip to the Midwest. We're flying in to Cincinnati and will meet up with Bill and Verda. Then we're going to tour around the Great Lakes a bit to see a part of the country I've never seen, with a stop for a day at least in Chicago. I have always wanted to see that great city and am really looking forward to it. Then back to Ohio for our flight home. It will be nice to have a break - we haven't been anywhere for a while now. Will post pictures when we get back.

Well, the second game was a little, teensy, weensy bit better. We needed Channing Frye to hit 5 3 pointers, and for Steve Nash to not throw the ball to the Lakers, and we could have won that one! We will be traveling for the rest of the series, which may be a good thing. Maybe we'll be in a sports bar on Sunday for Game 3. Still - think about it - this is the NBA Final Four. To make it this far is exceptional, and nobody gave Phoenix even half a chance to be here. Someday it will all come together, but not as long as Pau Gasol is playing in Los Angeles.

For the first quarter, I thought, "All right, hangin' in there!" Second quarter, still not too bad. Even the TNT crew said the Suns and Alvin Gentry should have been smiling - they were only down by 7. But then, oh my gravy! Kobe and the Gang came out and clobbered our guys in the 3rd quarter. I've always personally thought the 3rd quarter is the most important. It's when you make your statement, when you try to put the game out of reach, when you make all your free throws. Well, Phil Jackson may feel the same way, because they really put the hammer down. Maybe Wednesday will be better.
