Are you Sugar Ray?

After watching the surprisingly interesting and entertaining Superbowl despite the Steelers winning another title I needed something to turn my attention to. Unfortunately my DirecTv dish goes down the night Ray Allen hits a killer three to ice the Sixers. Figures. But, what if you watch the final play develop it is uncanny how the Big Three have gelled so seemlessly. Honestly it is like Pierce, Allen, & K.G. have been playing together since AAU. Watch how Pierce draws the defenders and Ray instantly cuts to his sweet spot. I don't blame the Sixers for taking the bait. Sure having three of the best players in the league on your team is a blessing. But, watching three bonafide stars, who could have egos about having to share touches, come together for the better of the team is a special thing to behold. In this day and age watching this team come together from the first game of 2008 to now is amazing.

Completely unrelated notes:

  • How did Ben Coates not get a first ballot nod for the Hall?
  • How the hell did James Harrison not get booted from the game for THIS!
  • The Steelers are the class of the league...My Ass! To quote Tim McCarver "You're a real man Ryan Clark...You're a Real MAN!"
  • You call this a parade Pittsburgh? We had a bigger one in Portland, ME for the Pats in 2001.
