The Aftermath

I’ve lived in San Antonio since 2002. After the 2007 final, I thought this city did not realize the magnitude of its place in sporting history. Not many cities outside Boston, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles were aware of what exactly winning multiple titles in a major sport means. In those cities, winning the Big Game is viewed as a right. It’s a bit of an unknown in less visible cities.

The city has thoroughly shown I was wrong. The people here did get a taste of what the Duncan-less future holds for them, that is, no annual 50 win seasons or title celebrations ending in the Alamodome. I think the party was even bigger and louder than the previous events of 2003, 2005 and 2007.

Other than a few individual events, the Spurs are likely done for the summer. And we’re going to leave them alone.

 

 


 

Last night, San Antonio erupted after that win.  As always, there was a big celebration, but relatively mild. If you’ve noticed, some places tend to find the ability to riot after a big sports win. In San Antonio, there’s no such thing.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
