An Open Letter To The Warriors

We’re not sure if anyone’s still here, but hopefully you’ve dialed into the RSS feed and are back, like us.

Dearest Golden State Warriors,

We love you. Really, we do. Since the dark days of Terry Teagle, we’ve been by your side, and truth be told, we’re probably never going to hop off the bandwagon.

But please don’t fuck up this year.

The Bay Area just wouldn’t be able to take it. You see, we’ve had quite a bit of suffering since you saw us last spring. When you got bounced from the playoffs in April—we’re sick of the Jazz too, by the way—the Bay Area sports scene was a totally different beast. The Giants were struggling a bit in the early going, but everyone thought it would just be a matter of time before Barry Zito got back on track and Barry Bonds broke the record. We had no idea how painful the baseball season would turn out.

Just like you, the 49ers entered the season with lofty expectations. They were a darkhorse. The trendy pick to make some noise. And, clearly, the bar was set too high, because lordy, those games are terrible.

And then we have you, Golden State Warriors. Playoffs are expected. The Clippers are done. The Kings are done. The Lakers are in turmoil. The Suns are an injury away from being vincible. You’re coming off the best playoff series in history. The table is set.

But things could go wrong pretty easily. Baron could go down. Monta may have peaked. Barnes could be a non-factor. Biedrins might not be able to carry the load down low. Nellie could lose interest and find himself in Hawaii by February. Last year may have been lightning in a bottle.

Prove us wrong. Save the Bay Area. Please.


Say Hey

    I was getting worried that you had died in one of those freeway shootings on 101…

    I’ve never left a comment in here, but I’ve been reading articles posted religiously since the summer. I was glad to see that a new blog had been posted. Keep up the good work

    Good to see Say Hey back in action. Noticed I haven’t seen a report from Brendan of Francis, where have they been? Look forward to your thoughts on the warriors.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone that
    genuinely knows what they’re talking about on the net. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular since you surely have the gift.

  6. Must be pretty excited over the Warriors now, eh?
