    Game 2, and then game 5 even moreso, brought me the most intense joy I have ever felt watching sports.

    Game 7 pays it all off. Those emotions are locked in, positive memories for life. :)

    Can somebody pickup a Chronicle and mail it to me since I don't live in Houston? I have them from the Rockets titles, so it would be nice to have this too.

    What an epic series! Sweeter to win in 7 than in 6, just more nerve racking.

    Gotta find my SI cover. I'm worried we threw it out when we moved.


    If I did, I'll be ordering a new one.
