, all the time

So I'm sitting at home this afternoon, recovering from the flu and still shaking the effects of a 50-point blowout at the hands of Jeff Van Gundy yesterday when the buzzer rings. I head down to the front door and the FedEx guy is standing there holding an envelope. I sign for it, bring it upstairs and tear it open. Low and behold, my spirits are lifted when I find these inside:

My wife, who I will from here on out refer to as the best wife ever, came through with these tickets to the Sixers/Hawks game for my birthday. I had just about written this season, and this franchise for that matter, off when Allen Iverson was traded in December. Thank God I didn't. These Sixers have come together as a team, and Andre Iguodala has had a chance to step forward as both a leader and a budding superstar. There's also another benefit to rooting for a team that's currently 15 games below .500 and dead last in attendance. Tickets like these are going for less than half of face value on StubHub.
