I went to a preseason basketball game last Monday evening with my friend Janet who is a huge fan of the hometown team the Phoenix Suns. She's such a fan that she's had season tickets 47 years. One of the great players from the past, Connie Hawkins passed away a few days before so the Sun's did a very nice memorial to him before the game started. I did get to see him play back in the 70's and he was one of the most skilled players I've ever seen. He had been doing public relations work for the Phoenix Suns so we would see him at the games from time to time. He'll be missed.
It's a good thing this was a preseason game because it was pretty bad for the home team. I think we were down around 40 points when we left. The game was so bad, this guy decided to read the paper rather than watch the mayhem way below him.
Hopefully, the real season will get off to a better start.
