RAPTORS GAME 5

  "GO RAPTORS"
 
    I would be shamefully amiss if I failed to mention there is "a" basketball game taking place in Toronto this evening.
    This is a game for Canada ... hoping THE Canadian NBA team becomes THE NBA champions

Go Raptors, Yeaaaaa. . .

Okay, I can understand the excitement being generated across the country (and especially in Toronto) by the possibility that a major professional sports championship may be won by a team based in this country.  Since many of our homegrown national professional athletes (hockey of course, what other sport is there) are employed south of the border and have contributed to keeping the Stanley Cup out of the hands of Canadian teams for 26 years, it's a Great White Northern f**k you to our neighbour and a vicarious thrill that "us Canadians" are better than them Americans.  Well, at least there is one Canadian on the team so we can hang on to that.  And of course, basketball was invented by a Canadian.

The question I've been pondering is if the Raptors win the NBA Championship will the President invite them to the White House??

The question I've been pondering is if the Raptors win - or lose - the NBA Championship, will their fans riot?

( Remembering the 2011 Vancouver Canucks riot. )

Just in case anyone missed this:  ;)

A Raptors team of fearless dreamers triumphed the only way they knew how — together
This group who came from all over the world imagined something great and then, against a Warriors team that fought with their whole champion’s hearts, achieved it.

I still don't get what happened with .9s left and why they had to put it back on the clock. (After the warriors called a timeout that they didn't have.) The final baskets still counted and it kinda put a damper on the celebration...everyone's just standing around knowing the Raptors have won it...
