So I'm going to gently swing this pendant back and forth. Just follow it with your eyes and relax. You're getting sleepy. Very very sleeeeeepy.
There was no Blazer game tonight. It never happened. You spent the evening playing with your family, or watching The Simpsons or Dexter or something. There is no box score here. You never saw Sasha's haircut. Blake did not do an alley-oop off the backboard. There are actually only 81 games played this season.
When I snap my fingers, you'll wake up relaxed, refreshed, and will remember that it's a long NBA season, and it's still pretty early. And you'll hang out for Dave's recap of the game that never happened.
Snap! -- Tim
