Home Skillets?! What’s up? Yeah, I know you’ve missed me. I have missed you terribly too! Well, I am back from Spring Break and ready to get things poppin. Hope all the Da Tigers fans were able to make it to opening day which was April 4th. I saw a lot of social media photos of you guys showing love and support for your team, wearing shirts, hats, got your face painted, wearing cloth wrist bands, banners, etc. Whew, Chile! Yes, I know it was a lot, but wait, that does not include the price of the ticket(s). In case you are wondering, there are tickets that are affordable ranging from $13 and up. That’s depending if you want to be able to see the game without wearing bifocals which you may have to borrow from your grandparents.
However, if you are ballin’ or received a company discount, then you may be able to sit close to the cock pit. Hey, if you got them for free, holla at ya girl, because like you, I’m frugal. For all the money that was spent going to the game, I guess you’ll say, you got your money’s worth. For those that did go, they won! Yes, they beat the Kansas City Royals, 5-4. Now, the Tiger’s record overall is 8-5. It was a very close game. Both teams did exceptionally well, but it could only be one winner. Kuddos to Da Tigers! Let’s keep hope alive and check them out today, April 12. Actually, the game has been postponed due to the weather. Hey, Minnesota’s weather is “Twins” with Bi-polarigan Mich-i-gan. Get it, LOL!
Any who, have you heard?! Da Pistons made it to the playoff’s baby!! Yes, Hallelujah, praise to whom ever you worship! Yes, yes, yes! Ok, calm down, not that type of excitement. Hey, maybe it was a good idea getting Blake Griffin?! I know some of you were wondering was he worth the cha-ching, *cough* 100 million dollars! Maybe or maybe not? I guess I won’t say he was worth it until they win a championship. Well, I know it is going to take more than one player, but I wonder, are they still cloning humans? Hmmmm, I’m saying it, without actually saying it, but can a girl dream? I can say that Da Pistons worked hard for that 8th spot in the East. They secured it by using that blue-collar work ethic! It was a rocky road. You win some, then you lose some, trades, injuries, etc. uggh!
There is no “I” in team. Team work makes the dream work, and this is the only way Da Pistons are going to win. That means everyone is going to have to step up their game. No time for errors, because it’s the Playoff’s baby! I hope they play like they are going to get pink slips after the season is over. If they don’t, at least make it to the 2nd round. LOL. I know, I know, that will never happen. Maybe someone will get traded. Thanks to that sealed hundreds and million-dollar contract(s), a player can lose every game and still get paid! Ah, the American dream! Now, it is going to be a challenge for Da Pistons, great teams like the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, 76ers, Pacers and the number 1 ranking team in the Eastern Conference the Milwaukee Bucks. More than likely, they are going to get swept.
I remember when it was the Cavs ranking number 1 in the east, but ever since Lebron left, that team did not even rank in the top 10. Ha, at least you know that Lebron made a HUGE difference. Yeah, like he is making in LA with the Lakers. I only say that because once again, there is no “I” in team. Cavs looked up to Lebron as their leader, motivator and “team” mate. Shoot, the Lakers are doing so bad, Magic Johnson has stepped down as their general manager. Ouch! Was it because he co-signed for “Lebron” and it backfired? Oh Isaiah, what do you think about that? If you want to support and cheer for Da Pistons, they will be playing the number 1 team, Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, April 14, 2019, @ 7:00 pm. However, if you can’t make it, you can also check them out on TNT, if you have cable.
Lastly, kudos to the Michigan State University Spartans for making it to the Final Four! That changed A LOT of people’s brackets and some lost money, but who would’ve thought that the Spartans would have beaten the mighty Zion and the daisy Dukes.
