There's a lot of complaining by sports fans in general, so this place is no different. We all speculate who needs to be traded, what sort of changes need to be made, discuss the questionable playing time for players...I could go on and on about the things we're all concerned with as fans.
I was watching the game Wednesday night against the Thunder, hoping Durant wasn't going to make a shot to win the game or send it into overtime. (I actually had a hunch he wasn't going to make it, he had a last second shot last season in Toyota Center that he missed. I was at that game, it was a wonderful win) That win on Wednesday night was very similar to the one I witnessed first hand about a year ago. It was the feeling of pure joy. Both times I jumped (not very high, I've got no athletic ability) up and yelled so loud I started to get a sore throat. Slapping high fives with people around me and in a state of disbelief.
So it's about 1:36 am right now and I felt I needed to get this off my chest, I'm proud of my team. So happy about the surprise the season has turned out to be so far. Happy for the players, our new coaches, and the other fans like me who love watching the Rockets win. None of the "we should trade Scola before the deadline" talk, none of my disses towards Martin or any other players I've had some things to say about. I just wanted to note how awesome it feels to get a win like that and not care about any kind of rhetoric about how to make the team better, even if it's short lived. It's fun to win!
