Occasionally I’ll tune in for a sports game, and I’m sure glad that I tuned in for last night’s NBA Finals Game 6. I remember watching in 2003 as the Mavs were beaten by the Spurs in the NBA semi-finals. I was a Spurs fan, but it still sad to watch another Texas team lose. But last night, the Mavs finally came into their own.
