Somebody stop me before I start liking basketball - please!
You should have heard me when Kobe (bleck!) made that 3-point shot to tie Game 2. I was not happy. I was even less happy when Detroit crapped out during overtime. Game 3 tonight is likely going to kill me.
In other hopeless underdog sports news - my Detroit Tigers are only 6 games back in the AL Central. Granted, the AL Central is arguable the weakest division in baseball - but still, the Tigs are only 6 games back! Plus my favorite player, Dmitri Young, is back after an early season injury.
I adore Dmitri because he looks like Motown. OK - so he looks a little scary, but if that's not Detroit what is?
In reading news, I'm working on a fantasy novel, Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong. Paige Winterbourne is a 20-something witch who is now guardian of a teenage witch with an impulse control problem. This teenager also is quite powerful, so there are evil supernatural factions that want to get their hands on the girl. So really, it's a cross between fantasy and suspense - using the classic "woman in peril" story line. So far, it's pretty good.
