Rising Suns

Given the not-infrequent references to sports on this blog, as an Arizonan I feel I must congratulate the Phoenix Suns on securing the best record in the NBA and home court throughout the playoffs. San Antonio gave them the top seed by losing last night, but Phoenix won anyway by crushing the otherwise red-hot Denver Nuggets (sorry, Ray and Adam). The Suns are the same age as me, and neither of us have ever won an NBA championship. I can't do anything about my shortcoming, but the Suns can address theirs by keeping it up in the playoffs, and exorcising the ghosts of close calls in 1976 and 1993. Beat L.A.! (Sorry, the Lakers aren't in the playoffs this year, but that is a habitual Suns fan chant. Also, my apologies for the title of this post -- I can't tell you how many "cute" Suns headlines I've seen over the years involving rising, falling, scorching, burning, and unfortunately, extinguishing.)
