Well, it's almost a week later, but I just had to put it on record here amongst my Bobcats brethren that I set an alltime record (for myself at least) for leaving early. Admittedly, I was getting worked up during the first half trying to keep track of the Tarheels while watching the Cats game which obviously got worse and worse as the game went on. By the time I saw the Heels finally pull it out, I saw where Jarret Jack was reliving his Ga Tech glory days and we were trailing, and he continued to put on a run and we were down by 8 at half?!?!?!
Well, even though the Heels won, my nerves were still on edge so I was stewing all during halftime about how the Cats game was going....and then the 2nd half started and well, with 6:55 left in the 3rd Larry called a timeout and it was a 17 point difference, and not being a masochist, I got my sweet ass out of TWC.
I guess one could look at it like I bailed on the team, but it was obvious it wasn't happening, and if the Cats had any say in the matter, they would've left early too.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
