Hey, guess what - Detroit's in the playoffs this year! *gag*

Ever since Cari left, there's no one around to organize social events. Don't look at me - I have all this important stuff to do... like... um... encourage my Sims to socialize.

Wait...

So luckily a fête happy hour was organized for last night. But unluckily, a basketball game was also scheduled for last night.

Basketball and I have never quite seen eye-to-eye but we managed to coexist civilly - the occasional biting remarks but usually it was okay to take us out in public together. But our truce lasts no longer!

The bar was full of people watching the game and cheering when Detroit went from 17 to 19 points ahead. Who cares? Basketball's all about running back and forth and back and forth. Maybe you make the shot this time, maybe you don't the next time, but you still have, like, infinity more chances to shoot and catch up. I can see how it would start to get exciting in the last, oh, 30 seconds or so, but I don't see why anyone would feel the need to cheer about a two-point shot in the second quarter!

This is not just bitterness because I'm short - I cannot fathom how anyone can enjoy watching the first three quarters of basketball!

I read your post and thought: Wow, Detroit has a basketball team? Proving of course that I am not even close to seeing eye-to-eye with basketball...but you cannot really blame me, wh have The Raptors.

Good god, someone worse than me! Yes, Detroit has a team. Apparently they don't suck as much as they traditionally have - it seems they even won the NBA championship last year.
