to see what I am talking about
I think you might have guessed that my household, although a household of WOMEN, is really really really into SPORTS. We are pretty much talking ALL sports, although Baseball and Hockey dominate the television most of the time.
This year, for the first time in a LONG time, basketball has been playing a dominant roll on the set. Not just any basketball team, although Stanford Women's Basketball was on a couple of times before they were eliminated from the tourney. No, everyPUGGY, we are talking the DUBS (Warriors, to you out-of-staters). That's what I said - the Golden State Warriors.
Our much-aligned Warriors have made BELIEVERS of the Bay Area. Nay, believers of the whole STATE. They are contenders! And even if they go no further than the Second Round of the play-offs, they will still no longer be considered a group of under-performing, mediocre talented, poorly managed team. It has been pretty exciting to watch them turnaround into a talented, well-coached team.
I have even adapted my signature Joe Thornton move to any appropriate situation that finds Stephen Curry scoring. To the uninitiated, this move is: approach the television at a mad dash all the while BARKING as loud as I can; and then I run back and forth in front of the set while still barking and attempting to touch Joe Thornton/Stephen Curry as he runs around on the court. I firmly believe this brings my favorite players good luck.
We are SPORTSproud here in the SF Bay Area.
