That said, this year's montage?
OH HOLY JESUS.
It starts out with one of those green preview screens "The following preview has been approved for all audiences BY THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS". Ok, cute, clever, got a giggle.
Then, instead of a Castle Rock or Dreamworks or whatever logo, it has a silver flying W, floating ominously out of some spooky clouds.
THEN THE MUSIC COMES IN.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE NARRATIVE MUSIC IS THIS YEAR, ALL NICE AND PUNCTUATED BY DRAMATIC BASKETS??
As in Billy Corgan the love of my life crooning over a slow-mo shot of Andris' face looking pensive.
OH MY GOD.
As in, HAY GUYS HERE IS A SONG FROM 1998 BY THE SMASHING PUMPKINS AND IT IS THE '09 WARRIORS MONTAGE. I WILL DIE.
Watch, next year they will bring Ace of Base into the swirling mixture of adoration and I will die even more, and so will everyone else, just from the nuclear shock of AWESOME.
I scoured the Warriors site and Youtube for it, but no trace just yet, unfortunately. I'm guessing it will be released to "the public" on October 29th and when that happens, you will SEE.
I WANT IT NOW, THOUGH.
Also I cried over it... because I have slept only three hours in the past two days but mostly really because HOW? How do they know??
Also, OKC is totally at the top of my shit list. Not because we lost to them tonight, because WE DIDN'T. WE WON. We beat the proverbial piss out of them. That's what they get for reading the bible and so forth. One of the men on the team screamed at the ref tonight and I decided that it really is time I date an angry black man because I will be turned on 147% of the time if I do that. I kind of only want that particular angry black man, but I am sure there are ways around it. THAT ISN'T THE POINT, GOD.
Anyway, OKC decided to try the whole NBA thing. Guess what their title is?
"Oklahoma City Thunder".
AND NOW WE HAVE NO MASCOT because "there was too much confusion".
Thanks a lot, assholes. Now where am I going to get my men-walking-on-their-hands-in-blue-spand
It was a good game, though, and it feels good to be home. I hugged Kathy forever.
Also, I had a dream last night that I did it with Joey Lawrence. He had George Michael (in WHAM) hair, and he was a really good lover. We also held hands and shit.
