I am speechless. I am really speechless. Forget all the Kobe talk about scoring 60 points. This is more important. This is a better accomplishment. This is history!

This past weekend I went out to Phoenix to catch some spring training. It was a tough drive since I was going out to the Grand Canyon first. That was a seven-hour drive and on three hours sleep.
But wow the Grand Canyon is gorgeous. I’ve been to the Hoover Dam part before but going to the South Rim and seeing all of that was amazing! I was breathless, even though I was super tired.
Then the rest of the night was just to get back to the Phoenix area, get some Lo-Lo’s (yes, oh that place again!) before heading to crash.
The next two nights had me go to Peoria to see the Indians vs Padres. That park is really nice. It was great to sit, relax and just soak up some Indians baseball. The next game the day after was the A’s and Cubs. Hohokam was really nice. Way better than Phoenix Municipal. It was a simple park and I really liked it because it still looked really fancy and up to date modern.
What made this trip also great was that I went back to the places that I had eaten before for fun. Not only did we do Lo-Lol’s, but we also did Matt’s Big Breakfast and Haus Murphy’s. I made multiple trips to Cracker Barrel too.
Honestly, I want to go back next year and try out new food places. See the A’s at home and get a game in at Goodyear. That I must!
I have a friend who is a season ticket holder to the 49ers and has the rights to SB tickets. He’s a Broncos fan.
If the Broncos won, he goes to the game.
If they didn’t make it to the Super Bowl, he’d give me the rights to the ticket for the Super Bowl.
The Broncos are in so I am out.
Patience is hard to come by when you’re a fan of a franchise that has struggled to reach the top for 40 years. It’s hard to believe that something good can happen when everything wrong has happened. I didn’t think that the enduring pain of seeing the Warriors falter for so many years would go away.
Yet tonight, all that pain and suffering was washed away. Just like that.
Being a Warriors fan wasn’t easy growing up. I was in first grade when I mimicked my first basketball player. That was Chris Mullin. I thought the Warriors were the best. But in the following years, we would see bad trades, bad coaches and bad play. Yet I stuck with them. I didn’t know any better. But I knew that they were the team I fell in love with first and I would stick with them. They were my home team…

As I think back to last night, I realized that I didn’t cry. I could have cried. I should have cried.
It was that 5-year old kid at St. Joseph’s Elementary school making his first basket on the playground, thinking back to the Warriors he saw on TV.
It’s that kid who was so excited about the Antawn Jamison draft pick that he drew Jamison’s new Warriors jersey and taped it on his wall.
It was that little boy who thought that the head coaching changes were decent and that the 1999 team was on to good things.
A story of my journey as a Warriors fan. Great read.
A trip down memory lane for me as a Warriors fan.
I remember I was in first grade and I saw the Warriors on TV. I didn’t know much about basketball, I just liked it. I would try to imitate what I saw on TV to the playground. I even remember the first ever basket I made on the playground I thought that I could one day match what the Warriors did. It was so easy to be impressed by this Warriors team. Little did I know that they were embarking on a playoff drought. But they were the first team I watched. The first team I followed. I fell in love with basketball because of them. And I never left.
It’s not easy being a Warriors fan. As I grew older, my frustrations would grow more and more with the team…
