Going an NBA Game with my Uncle tonight!

My Uncle scored us some tickets to see the Warriors play the San Antonio Spurs tonight in Oakland. I'm only a fair weather basketball fan, but it should be exciting. This is THE game to see. The Warriors have been hot, and have the best record in the NBA, but the Spurs are close behind them. Of course I'll be rooting for the Warriors, but the spurs are actually my second favorite NBA team. I like Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, and the team is well-coached, like the Warriors. Do you follow sports at all? Or are you like my brother, who could care less about any sport?

As far as I'm concerned, Spurs refers to the football (soccer) club, Tottenham Hotspurs. They stole the manager from the only soccer team I've ever really followed (Pompey) and the club's never recovered!!!

Is the manager the same as a baseball manager, or what we call "head coach" in Football American?

@TheHorse Probably - but I'm not quite sure what a head coach is!

@Vivenda He's the guy who runs up and down the sidelines getting mad at the referees. He's also the one who ultimately decides which play to run, etc.

@TheHorse , I follow sport, my Cricket team won a match today after a dry spell, I am so freaking happy! And we have the Newzealand 7's Rugby coming up this weekend, and I hope my team the Blitzbokke will do well, the USA will also be there. I hope you enjoyed or enjoy the game!

It was a lot of fun. I played baseball when I was younger and now play softball. We've converted some Indian neighbors from cricket to softball. It was all fun. I would like to learn how cricket works. But I've never gotten to watch a match with someone who could explain it to me.

@TheHorse , I am glad you had a great time at the game. Who won? Was it the team you wanted to? Maybe you can ask your Indian neighbours that you converted to softball to explain Cricket to you? Especially the One Day or 50 overs game or the 20 overs T20 games. :-)

I'm not a real sports fan. I'm a Packers fan, and with them out of the playoffs, and the Super Bowl has now been decided, I haven't watched any further football. I hope you had a good time at the game.

I had a good time. The game itself wasn't as close as we expected. But it was fun to be with my Uncle, Cousin, and a nice friend of my Cousin. Boys night out, I reckon you could say.

I am actually an avid Warriors fan. I watch almost all of their games on TV. I watch the game of the Warriors and Spurs earlier on TV. I expect a very close game. But the game ended up with a blowout. And my favorite player, Stephen Curry didn't play in the 4th quarter and he scored 37 points. He's really amazing.

Did you see his behind the back on the way to the hole layup? He is something else.

I'm not a big sports fan, but I do follow our local college football team. Not enough to watch most the games, but enough to see if they won or not.

I'm like that with some sports (NHL Hockey, for example). Just check n now and then to see if the Sharks are still in it. Watch a game on occasion.

I think football is king in the South. Are you rooting for the Panthers in the Super Bowl?

Tim Duncan is injured and didn't make the trip That was a disappointment for me, as I really like him. Stephen Curry put on a show.

We pay little attention to sports although we like it when the Aussies win. There has been some good tennis on lately.
