I love Manu!

Most All of y'all aren't going to care a bit about this, but I have to record this moment.

The Spurs are playing the LA Lakers. We sucked the first half. We've been doing that a lot lately. We usually do at this time of year, though, so I'm annoyed but not terribly worried. Anyway, we kicked butt in the third quarter. It seriously rocked! The biggest reason for this is Manu Ginobili who is an amazing player and so much fun to watch. In a mini-interview between the third and fourth quarters, they asked our coach, Pop, how he knew Manu would be able to revive the team in the third quarter when he hadn't really done anything in the first half. Pop just looked at the reporter like he was nuts and said in a "Well, duh!" kind of voice, "Because he's Manu Ginobili." Which if you know the Spurs and you know Manu is just an absolutely perfect answer and really says everything you need to know. Hopefully Manu'll keep kicking butt in the fourth quarter and we'll actually win this one.

EDIT: We won! And I nearly dropped my computer off the edge of the bed when I started cheering. Oops.
Feeling: Giggly
Exploring: Bed
Listening: TV - Spurs game

Manu is Manu

This was such a great moment. First of all to have the spurs down by 11 pts going into the third and then being up by 10 going into the fourth. What a quarter! We we're yelling so loud we probably pissed off all of our neighbors. And I'm so glad you blogged about the interview too... the moment where the reporter was talking to Pop between quarters... LOL! When Pop said "Because he's Manu Ginobli" the reporter chuckled, but Pop never even blinked! The reason: he wasn't cracking a joke. It was such an uncomfortable moment me and my gf were just about crying with laughter. To use another great Pop quote: "Manu is Manu." I have two Manu jersey's (one home and one away... of course) and LOVE THE SPURS! GO SPUR NATION! Thanks again for the blog. ;)

Re: Manu is Manu

I felt sorry for the poor reporter. I mean, if you know Manu his performance was absolutely not a surprise, just so much fun to watch. Pop was dead-on in his answer and the guy just didn't get it.

Go Spurs!

Manu is Manu 2

oh yeah. i forgot to mention the two between the legs passes (one to himself) he had! those were so awesome!!! the one where he was going back and forth with Parker... "magnifique!!!" (i think that's what tony might say... lol!)

Re: Manu is Manu 2

Those passes were absolutely brilliant! I don't know anyone other than Manu who would even attempt something like that multiple times in one game, let alone succeed. The pass to himself was the best.

Re: Purple Swamp Gator

I was only able to catch the very end of the game last night and don't remember seeing anything like that. I was too worried about the possibility of losing.

Re: Purple Swamp Gator

yeah it was waaaay too close for comfort. but they pulled it out. i wish there was a pic because it was the most hideous suit i've ever seen in my entire life (purple alligator shoes and all).
