no joke.


i tried to tell you guys. i tried to get some of you on the bandwagon.

last night, the atlanta hawks beat last season’s holder of the best regular season record, the dallas mavericks, 101-94.

yes you heard me right. the hawks beat the mavericks.

they looked good too. they were playing hard, hustling for every ball and taking everything dallas had to throw at them. the rookies, acie law and al horford looked good – horford was dominating dirk nowitzki until he came out with foul trouble – and joe johnson and josh smith played lights out.

that picture, unfortunately taken from my iphone because the batteries on my camera died, is the scene in phillips arena right after joe johnson scored to put the hawks up by five and seal the game. it was amazing, the whole place was on their feet, waving the flags they gave out and screaming their lungs out for THE HAWKS.

do you believe yet?

    Yep. I was there, great game, great crowd. The Hawks are good and our only hope for a playoff team. Sleep on the Hawks if you want Fran Tarkington (Tarkenton?), but this town desperately needs a winner.

    Thank God for the Hawks. I need some sort of team to root for, every other team sucks ass.

    I hope the Hawks really do well this year. They have struggled so in past years. I remember when “Pistol Pete” was here as well as the human highlight Nique.

    I Just hope we don’t have any members of the Hawks who are into dogfighting.
