Blueberry Pancakes

Everyone loves them. And everyone's a winner a Putt-Putt. And right now, surrounded by pickets, fog, and the usual...the Clip Ship is 4-0. I should be happy, but...

We've been here before. You take wins where you can get them and steal others. When life is hard in March, you need these November wins. Hell, get them under the radar. As this photo indicates, a match-up of undefeated teams this soon doesn't draw a lot of interest - even in Indiana.

A little over 10 years ago, the Clippers started the season in a similar fashion, and ended up with a big WEOMP for the season summary. This team is usually a failure, so it's only a matter of time, right?

The injuries, big and small, continue to pile up. And yet...gotta get these wins. It would seem to me, with a franchise such as this, you're not being pessimistic by thinking this way. It happens at some point during the season, so it takes an able mind to be prepared.

But...4-0. A fine start. Come Friday, another undefeated team, another measuring stick. Ghetto meets Ghetto. Come prepared.

The thing about the NBA is... why NOT the Clippers? After the Spurs, Suns and Mavs out west, who's to say the Clips can't be every bit as good as, say, the Nuggets? Compare body fat in coaches, for example. Clips, hands down.

Come playoffs, Golden State can run, so why not? Get your Ws now, and don't worry about long term projection. Nothing's standing in front of the Spurs anyway, so hey. Sam C's still got the fattest sack of them all.
