Off to yet another game at the Target Center with Bonk. This game was actually closer for the majority of the contest than the final score indicated, despite the fact that the Wolves were without Randy Foye, Sebastian Telfair, and Theo Ratliff. The Cavs won handily thanks to the fourth quarter domination by the man-child Lebron. He had 10 straight points in the last two minutes… which resulted in the 11 point victory. I don’t think he even broke a sweat. For the game he tallied 45 points, 8 boards, and 5 assists. Big Al didn’t do too shabby himself, notching 30 points and 8 rebounds on 12-20 shooting. The Wolves rallied back from about a 14 point deficit to get within 4 points in the fourth quarter, but their spirited comeback fell short. Ha, go figure.
As season ticket holders, we brought with our coupons to receive our free throw blankets and Wolves season scrapbooks. Not as cool as last year when we could pick between jerseys, shorts, t-shirts, and bobbleheads… but better than nothing I suppose. Next year we’ll probably get coupons for half off one food item. The “scrapbook” is lame, and they gave us two of them. Why? The “blankets” are decent I guess. However, they are paper thin and smell like mothballs. I wouldn’t stick them in your trunk for use as emergency blankets, I can tell you that much. If you stitched them both together and made one super season ticket holder Wolves blanket, it would probably be big enough to cover up Corey Brewer. However, it definitely would not be big enough to keep Antoine “Mount Foodji” Walker warm. On a side note, I may be sitting here scribing this sitting in nothing but the said blank. Just kidding. Maybe.
