So they pull the axe on Flip and it makes me....

...appreciate the efforts of GW even moreso than I did before.


Because I miss GW - and probably still would if the pinnacle of our BB success remained the 2001 FF (the year before the NC). Ok, I value MD BB before the Wiz/Bullets, but my dad took me to a ton of games out at the Cap Center including the 74, 78 & 79 Finals. I still hate Jack Sikma.

The point I am trying to make is Flip getting fired does not REGISTER. It is barely sports news. Who cares. I can no longer name the last few Wiz coaches before him. The Wiz are cursed and play in a conspiracy masquerading as a sports league. The most emotion from the crowd seen at a Wiz game is from the Kiss Cam. For those of us who remember Cole - the heat, the crowd the dripping intensity - and the days before pumped in crowd noise and "MAKE SOME NOISE" on the teletron, the Cap Center never came close even with the Bullets in the Finals or Playoffs. And lets face it, the phone booth has less soul than a brick (whereas the cable box has a ton of soul for the big games).

Thanks to GW for putting a team together that MATTERS. Because no team in the NBA really does. But every BB team has a chance to matter - GW did it with alarming consistency which made most of us take the success for granted.

Just Rambling with no coherent point I guess.
