Suns Win! Suns Win!

Tuesday, May 23, 2006

After a hard-fought series against the suprisingly tough L.A. Clippers, the Phoenix Suns have advanced to the Western Conference Finals of the NBA Playoffs for the second year in a row. Trying to win a championship for the first time in franchise history, the Suns have advanced one step closer as they face the Dallas Mavericks in the next round of the playoffs. In a year that many thought the Suns would be doing well just to make the playoffs after the loss of Amare Stoudamire before the start of the season, Steve Nash and company are turning heads and raising hopes in the Valley of the Sun.

I would love to be able to be in Phoenix for some of these playoffs (and have the money to actually go to a game). For that matter, I wish we at least had cable so that I could actually watch the game instead of watching the "play by play" on

While I feel sorry for my good friends in Cleveland over their loss against the "Bad Boys", I am glad the Suns are moving on. I think that Phoenix is definitely positioned to be the underdog to root for from here on out in the playoffs. (I mean, come on, who could actually root for the Mavs or either of those two teams remaining in the East?)


Just some sports thoughts from a transplanted Phoenician,

So, where are you sending your resume if the Suns lose?

My resume is going nowhere! I root for the Suns, I don't stake my future on them. :) Besides, I am not sure there would be anyone interested and if I had to send it somewhere related to this series, I could just not bear the possibility of submitting it anywhere near Dallas - too many Cowboy fans. Besides, my understanding is that the nice little church I know about in Georgia already called a Pastor recently :).
