“We began the NBA season with so much promise not even six months ago, and you’re already saying goodbye? You’re leaving us?”
“I’ll be back in a few days with better games and better teams. And I promise to last until June,” says the wintry old NBA season. “I’ll also have fresh legs, better attendance, and midnight West Coast games.”
“Oh okay,” we say and fall back to sleep. “West Coast games after midnight,” we murmur.
