Thunderstruck

As much as I want to just go on and on about my MLB Fan Cave campaign and how it’s now down to the final two days before they cut us to 30, there’s one story in the NBA I just can’t ignore. And that is the Oklahoma City Thunder’s dismantling of the Denver Nuggets the other night. Wait, dismantling? They won by six and it took overtime to get the dubya. That confuses me greatly considering the information immediately following this paragraph. But that’s a blopic for a different day.

What I want to discuss is the insanity that the big three on the Thunder brought to the floor. Holy. Smokes. Everyone knows Kevin Durant is a scorer, but 51? Everyone know Russell Westbrook can ball, but 40? And Serge Ibaka (er…Iblocka) has tons of potential, but a triple-double that included 11 blocks? That’s just absolutely ridiculous.

It was only a matter of time before the Durantula dropped a half-century on us. But the same night that his P.I.C. threw down 40? Which just so happened to coincide with their young big man coming through with a rare, exceptionally dominant triple-double? I don’t know what the odds are of the planets aligning like that, but it’s pretty awesome. Hopefully it isn’t forgotten by the casual fan, like the Dodgers’ back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-walk-off home runs were.

The fans who attended this Thunder/Nuggets game must have been going absolutely bonkers. That would have been a hell of a game to watch if it just went to OT. Or if one of those players had just had a big night. Instead, all of the above occurred and one of the best regular season games we’ve seen in a long time ensued. Okay, so I wasn’t watching. But I wish I had been.

Instead, I was busy campaigning my butt off all weekend for the MLB Fan Cave. Hah, I almost made it an entire blog without a plug. Sorry I’m not sorry. The newest news is this: I stayed up late e-mailing every journalist, sports reporter and radio host known to man in hopes of landing one last big-name interview before Wednesday to get some last-minute exposure. I also finished my second promo video (Sh*t Rivals Say: Giants vs. Dodgers), and contributed to a group one that will be an absolute GEM.

Lastly, I set up one more Facebook event. This one I called 30-for-3o (fingers crossed that ESPN doesn’t sue me for infringement). Meaning, PLEASE vote for me 30 times each today and tomorrow, to get me to the final 30. It takes three minutes to vote 30 times, and if everyone I’ve ever met does it whole-heartedly, I will be running up that vote ladder.

So, I hope you enjoyed KD, Russ West (I immediately regret this awful nickname) and Serge “Iblocka” Ibaka. But I truly hope you enjoy helping a friend out even more.
