It's interesting how long 0.9 seconds can be I rather enjoyed the game, pretty fast paced, and the last couple of minutes were very exciting. There was still an element of them always seeming to go for three's instead of possibly safer twos. I will admit I was not sure if they'd win, it had been very close. There is also something rather delicious in beating the warriors in their house as it were, and it's the last game to be played there. It's also interesting for me as I work for a company that's part of the Rakuten group. I suspect there will be some lively joshing going on with the team in the Cali HQ today

Why on earth are the holding the parade on Monday at 10 am? It’s going to shut much of the city down on a working day. Surely Sunday would have been a much better choice?

Yeah. It makes little sense at all other than the fact most of the Basketball players want to get away so they have to do it sooner is my guess or no one will be around.

Took me over 1 hour to drive less than 5 miles along Lake Shore to Queens Quay this morning due to a sponsored walk. I saw no signs of the walk. Goodness knows what it will be like on Monday.

The reason the parade is Monday is because they have been in Las Vegas celebrating...flying back tomorrow.

There was the Lululemon 10k run on this morning. I had a couple of friends running it. I preferred to stay in bed myself!

I didn’t know about it and guess what? Took me 1 1/2hrs to get from Marine Parade to Queens Quay.
