    I hope he's ok. He's done a couple of ski trips, when in Denver for one, and Bill was nagging on him about possibly hurting himself and not being able to announce the game...

    When people nag about something bad, it always seems to happen ..

    Good thing it's not a concussion and nothing else - more people than we'd like die from skiing accidents or become vegetables doing the sport.

    F-ing Jazz and their f-ing snow.

    See, it's already started. They're playing dirty and the games have yet to begin.

    Some tall people are more agile than smaller people.

    NISSALKE! MY MAN!

    Love him. Used to personally answer letters I wrote him when he was coach. I was five. Those were handwritten.

    I asked him about defense and what number Rick Barry would wear.

    Tom Nissalke rules.
