Today is a good day to be a Warriors fan — as good a day as we’ve had in six years, at least. Against all odds, our team stepped up and beat the Nuggets last night, as I sipped whiskey at Sidelines in Arcata, drumming my fingers on the bar and occasionally leaping up from my seat and making a spectacle of myself.
The Nuggets didn’t seem to know what hit them, and frankly I felt a little bit that way myself this morning. We Warriors fans are not well-equipped to handle success, especially when it comes in so surprising a fashion. (The whiskey may have had something to do with it too.) I’m not complaining, mind you; the day just keeps getting better and better, and I’d love to have three more just like it in the next week or so.
