Default Bobcats @ GSW, Fri 2/27/09 Oracle Arena

Not only did we pull off a necessary but nail-biting win, can you all believe that all the teams ahead of us lost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was thinking that the Clippers would be an easy win but they beat the Celtics. But we should still end this road trip 3-2.

For all the Diop-bashers: against GSW he played under 18 minutes and was perfect 4/4 shooting for 8 points as well as 3 blocked shots and 4 rebounds. He's obviously responding to the coaching.

"Any win is a good win."

I wouldn't be concerned with the Clipps beating the Celtics. We beat the Celtics. Lower level teams feel motivated to play their best against the top-tier teams. Remember, the Suns tattooed the Clipps by 80 over a two night span, scoring over 280 points.

I like it when these west coast games fall on the weekend. Go Cats!!!

*interesting note: my daughter goes to Catholic school and brought home a flier yesterday noting that the game 3/28 against the Knicks is "Catholic night at the Bobcats". I just about died. What are they gonna do have communion and a collection?

I am totally going to Catholic night.

This was a fun game to watch in the last 3 minutes for sure. When Boris hit that three I literally jumped out of my seat.

All revealed-religion is complicated.
But God is too busy to care about such human matters as sports. He/she really doesn't give a damn about who wins or loses.

Catholicism and Christianity are different, yet the same. In a broad aspect, Christianity, Catholicism and Islam are the dame in the sense that they are all centered around a certain series of events and characters (Moses, Noah, Jesus, etc.) However the details are all different.

Christianity today is really more of a personal thing. There are over 34,000 documented Christian denominations today. So while people may not get it or understand it, neither do we. It's become a personal thing.

You know the south is the only spot I have lived where I hear Catholics are not Christians...I don't know where this idea came from here.

I don't agree that Christians think that Christianity is a personal thing. Some do, for sure, but if you asked around you'd see that many of you folks are still real serious about believing that this religion is the only "correct" religion in the world. BTW--us Jewish people know a little about Moses and Noah, too. We were the first ones to collect old--very old--stories about floods and resurrections and the like and put them into the Old Testament.

It's been around for a long time. Probably since the Protestant Reformation. Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Quakers and such have always been considered "not Christians" until some folks have become more enlightened in recent times. I bet that many non-Catholic Christians have conveniently forgotten that the original Christianity WAS Catholicism until the split that created what became Orthodox Christianity around 1000 AD and then the Protestant Reformation a few hundred years later.

Rufus--next time get us going on religion in our off-topic section!!!

Yeah. My point was more about the lengths the team is going to promote home games than about religion. I'm definitely taking the family that night though.
